Hurray for Victory

After whining earlier today that Ned's Sudoku puzzle was too hard, I have defeated the giant! Click here to view its corpse. Spoiler warning... don't look at it if you are still puzzling away yourself. I was beginning to doubt my own puzzle conquering prowess... whew! So, Nedra, is there some kind of prize? Like topless photos of all your drunken friends? Hmmm?

And here's an old photo you all know and love, but now it's freakin' huge! I love Flickr... my friend Flickr.

This has to be one of the most contrived photos I've seen in years. Here we see societal decay and rust presented like fine art, as if that hasn't already been done a thousand times over. The subject is obviously the scraped pentagon in the center of the hydrant, but it's also in the center of the photo itself which is one of the biggest compositional no-nos around. The coloring was obviously enhanced in Photoshop, or with some other editing software designed to make the artist seem greater than he is. The words "American Darling" appear faded around the edges of the hydrant, as if to remind us that America is little more than a decaying fire hydrant that has attained beauty and purpose only through its utter obsolescence. I do like how some of the paint is peeling, but the photographer had nothing to do with that.

Wow, I'm tempted to delete such a blatant lie: attempting to ascribe my fine name to this post; but since it's better than anything I might write on the subject, I'll leave it.

Now write your own sentence using a colon AND a semicolon just for fun!

I love the Post a Secret thing: it's fascinating and scary at the same time; one wonders why people feel compelled to spill their beans but loves scooping every spoonful.

Do I get a prize for my sentence? Speaking of prizes, I'm sorry, there will be no boob pictures. I think you would have been disappointed with them anyway, as all were clothed.

By bravely and blatently committing the "biggest compositional no-no" of placing the subject in center frame, John has embraced the most daring of post-post modern conceits. I was a center-field man, and can you doubt my artistic genious? If I had PhotoShop I would have used it, as the body of my revolutionary work was 'contrived'. Art is but a contrivance, a visual representation of the imagination.
