Against the Law to Draw ...So back in 2009, just when I was leaving Japan (and wishing I could stay) the big joke of the day was the Anti-Manga law that was making the rounds in political circles. Now at the time it was a joke because no one ** and I do mean No-One ** who actually reads manga wanted this law to pass. In point of fact it no one even took the law seriously viewing it as a breach of trust between the government and the people of japan ** Most of whom actually read Manga **
My point is that in 2009 this law failed to pass and the issue was considered dead. (Laugh now ... )
The punch line of this joke is with the change of government in Japan and the general social chaos during the years that followed. Somehow while no one was looking the same fascist pigs managed to sneak through an even harsher law that pretty much bans everything. You wanna guess how bad the law is ... a friend of mine who actually makes a living drawing manga told me just recently that a number of her projects were re
The End, a kind of unacknowledged hope ...I had a thought today that I wanted to share about this whole "End of the World" bug that's been making the rounds for the past few years.

Southern modernizationBlack comedy market economy, banana peel political humour, cards with the cartels, the solution free room service and credit the union. Bolivar twist, ding dong dollar under control, valley of the coin desert with no value. Gangsta paradise, the victims are the people. Big mac and cold conflict interference a part of it all. In little Mexico you’d need a high horse to jump the great border wall that boasts its peak.
Viracocha melts waters unlike those it rose from, making waves of out of metal oceans to overtake the current south, re-steel, re-take, tech-mechs the entire south into neo-Machu Picchu, cyberpunk music moulding, reshaping old society into an new age, iron dynasty, fresh coat for an old, ancient look. The coattails of Quetzalcoatl if he were a modern man pull together the merge of future and long passed past..techno temples and the like.
