Gargoyle spits over no one. No more trampled buildings. It's all left now to lanyards businessmen taking pictures, and mimic remains.

Wesley Willis art prices seem to be rising

For the first time in months, I was recently able to go through my Wesley Willis Ebay art RSS feed (login required) and check out the pieces that are being had for Wesley Willis pieces.

I was surprised to see that things seem to be kind of all over the place, with a general trend toward higher prices. Things that are comparable to items going for $400 earlier this year are now going for $900 - 1,000. Here are some recent posts:

Active posts over at Open Source Homeland

So I have been actively posting to my website, Open Source Homeland, over the last month or so. The concepts that I explore there-- loosely coupled relationships between government and private citizens, using emerging tools to help make us safer, cutting through gov't baloney to get things done to make us safer-- are getting more crystallized in my mind as time goes by. Here are some posts from the last week:

This week I'll also be vetting the new Homeland Security Strategy for the State of Massachusetts, looking for ways they can include OSH-style tactics in their thinking.

Obsessed with Dexter

Over the last week or so I've watched the entire first season of Dexter.

I've periodically been taken by the tales of serial killers, mainly on a regional basis. I read Buried Dreams about Gacy in Des Plaines, got caught up with the Filipino wackiness of Andrew Cunanan, who stopped off on the Gold Coast here in Chicago, created Killer on the Loose after the midwest spree killings on Benjamin Nathaniel Smith, and then of course there's Dahmer of the Milwaukee-Chicago corridor.

So Dexter is an ugly, entertaining addition to the canon. It's all make-believe. We are an odd culture, with the sanctity of the individual. Maybe I'm odd, too, but if I am, I'm not the only one.
