 Yes, we don’t so much like these “gross” ones, the odd color ones and the misshapen ones.

By Doug Rickard

There is an inversion taking place here in that which is Wrong.

Yes, an inversion taking place as elements and features, constructed from “normal ones”, are twisted into creatures. Replace and deface, erase and retrace, instruct and construct. I turn the pages while I gawk and shift and retract, but I am pulled by its enchantment, seduced by its vulgarity, repulsed by its charm. At a deeper level this inversion is preying upon and manipulating the notions that we carry, our own sense of normalcy, the arrangement of our physical world. It is taking those barriers that keep things in order, that keep us from squirming, those normal shapes that keep us comfortable… and it heaves them on their head.

The tools used to do this to us are such:

* Hairy heads
* Large blobs of (organic) mass
* Double sets of eyes
* Larger sets of eyes
* Bulging sets of eyes
* Wooden legs and little boxes to carry around torso stumps
* A pat on the back to reassure a misshapen creature that is not reassurable
* Beasts and humanoid sex
* Double heads and lambchop faces
* Mocking and worshipping of shapes in odd places

You see, we are very comfortable with those things that are pretty and symmetrical. We are at ease around that which fits in and that which is “right” but we get rather nauseous at that which is ugly and that which is wrong. The too-fat things, the too-hairy things, the rickety-handicapped things and the fairy things. The bumpy shapes and the sandpaper-whisker scrapes, the off-kilter and the uneven. The large foreheads and the over-hairy. Yes, we don’t so much like thes “gross” ones, the odd color ones and the misshapen ones. We may say that we accept them and we may like them more if we are one of them… but in truth, we are ugly and we want what is normal, we prefer what is balanced, we love what is “right”.

Yes, there is an inversion taking place here in that which is Wrong and in a lovely little black and white object full of pictures to cherish and sit on our hand… in a remarkable manipulation of skill, vision and fate, the Wrong turns out to be simply everything that is Right.

Absolutely and utterly recommended.

  3. Perhaps the depression was getting the better of me, and I felt
    helpless to prevent it. You might want to visit the Great Wall of China, or learn to play the piano, or grow a garden, or maybe
    act in a play. I was amazed by the power
    of the mind, the power of Spirit.

    emergency electrical & lighting systems; solar energy; wind energy;
    security systems; telecommunications systems including closed circuit television; climate control systems including fire detectors, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors and exhaust fans;

    Gerry says. I was also up front about taking a snapshot

  11. The cost of a large private branch exchange system is approximately $800 to $1000 per

  12. Article Source: suggest you take the time to visit the website of Steve Mike levy at

    so well in pass rates.

    This has been a recipe for more disasters over the last
    ten years than just the threat to the environment that poor driving brings.
    I believe high self-esteem requires that you be competent at producing the results you say you want
    in the world.

  26. Driving for Life is the Holy Grail of Driving Instructors and Driving Schools with a conscience, but
    unfortunately the emphasis on passing the Driving Test in Ireland seems to outweigh this
    lofty principle most of the time. Then again, why was brushing the teeth so dammed important
    anyway. I believe high self-esteem requires that you be competent at producing the results you
    say you want in the world.

  27. It also helps people while relocating, remodeling or reconstructing their homes.

    Make sure to use a bit of creativity in packing and self storage.
