Idealized love, in the eye of the beholder. 
Chips and scratches cannot change the way the artist sees their love. 

Idealized Love Chipped and Scratched

You learn something every day. 
Feminism has now been outed as a white supremacist group.

I'm glad that progressive thought keeps advancing to its politically correct Weltanschauung. Social warriors everywhere unite!
The struggle of the proletariat cannot be stopped!
...Unless the doublespeak "progressive" movement winds up devouring itself, trying to out-PC each other.
One thing's for sure -- I need an official list of all the groups I'm supposed to hate; there are too many to remember -- do they have an app for that?
I am investing in companies that build safe spaces; that's for sure the growth industry of the future. 

(Note: No trigger words were consciously used in the formulation of this post. If you feel you've been triggered by anything said as a result of my post-traumatic stress over guilt association to residual neo-Freudian privilege insensitivities inherited from my involuntary post-colonial lineage, please accept my karmic reparations in advance.)

Feminism is White Supremacist
It is highly abusive and discriminatory to animals to expect bovines to indefinitely hold their flatulence or limit their autonomic expulsions of digestion byproducts to prescribed increments based on a carbon-footprint schedule. In California, where so many bean burritos are sold, I would expect the cow lobby to demand equal regulation for human windiness. I'm glad I live in Ecuador, where cows are free to express themselves in a natural, sustainable way.

Street Art always tells a story.
But some street art requires a roving eye to see the whole story.

Why bring the tree in the house when you've got one planted in the backyard?!

Mining companies in Ecuador promise "responsible mining."
It seems the graffiti on the wall has an answer to that...CHENDO!

Responsible Mining - Chendo
"Chendo" = "Just Kidding"

How Do You Know Truth?  
A Simple Rule - Media Programming isn't called "programming" by accident. Corporate media programming is fake truth, hypnotic doublespeak, a greedy, power-hungry inversion of reality whose agenda is anything but humanistic. The quicker we send the elite media vultures to the influence graveyard, the faster we regain our critical thinking, the sooner society will emerge from the enslaving perception bubble, the more solidly the truth will emerge for all to see.

Some lament the once grand and noble 4th Estate has subdivided into a squalid duplex of rancorous armed camps. But the 4th Estate was never grand or noble. It was always inhabited by vipers, sycophants, and fools who counted on the less you know the more you believe. But now they no longer command what is true and they don't like it. Their doublespeak temper tantrum labels a free press anything not fake. It's like telling their kid to pick any color as long as it's blue.

Mainstream Media Graveyard

"Be the anomaly, the aberration, the glitch, the inconvenient, 
the divergent, the string of junk code. 
Be the stubborn apple that falls 
nowhere near the tree, or the fucking forest. 
Be the fool, the bonehead, the idiot in the room. 
Let them shake their groupthinking heads at you. 
Let them be ashamed of you, embarrassed of you, pissed off at you. 
They will call you names and you must let them. 
Let them jeer, let them point, let them laugh. 
Be resistant to their mockery. 
Be the fodder for their jokes. 
Be a magnificent failure in their eyes. 
A tiger doesn’t lose sleep over the opinion of sheep. 
So go ahead, be the scar tissue on their worldview. Their normality. 
They’ll loathe you. They’ll fear you."

EMOV signs

A Valiant Effort
EMOV signs in Cuenca express wishful thinking more than reality.

Sometimes that's the only explanation.
Well done art has a way of cutting through the crap,
crystallizing feelings and ideas together into a visceral experience. 

Much fun at Cuenca's Independence Day Celebration is gone but not forgotten.

My Feelings are hurt!
The following sign has triggered me!
I am hurt that someone can misunderstand the concept of freedom of speech 
to the point of being so counterfactually demented.
And so -- this sign should not be allowed!
If I believe what this sign says - I should be able to ban it!

We Condemn
Everything hurts
