John Porter Strikes Back in the Desert, Alive and Kicking

A while back I upset quite a few people in my post by insisting that John Porter had met his maker, and therefore is yet another victim of The Hobbit.

I wanted to offer you this poem to help with your grief over the loss of our beloved soldier, written by Mary Elizabeth Frye.

What I couldn’t tell you then, and what I shouldn’t tell you now, is what really happened to John Porter.

I’m disclosing this top-secret info because I trust you, but if word got out, Porter would be in a lot of danger.

John is alive and kicking, last seen in the Middle East carrying out a secret mission.

He’s using a bushy beard as a cunning disguise, and changing his mode of transport to confuse the enemy.

Here’s what the satellite cameras picked up:

You’re welcome, just keep it to yourself!

David LaChapelle’s kitschy Celeb Reality

David LaChapelle is one of my most favorite photographers and artists.

His career began in the 1980’s in New York City.
There his work was spotted by his hero Andy Warhol and the editors of Interview Magazine, where he began his first professional photography job.

Working at Interview Magazine, LaChapelle created the most memorable advertising campaigns of a generation.

His striking images have appeared on and in between the covers of magazines, where he has redefined how we view celebrities.

He’s an unusual mixture of vivid colours, symbolism and a wicked sense of humour.

LaChapelle isn’t for the faint-hearted, but not many can deny he embodies popular culture.

There can be no doubt that LaChapelle is out to shock, but I really do enjoy his work.

He sprinkles just enough kitsch in his images, to make them eye-catching and characteristic.

He never bores, and yet you can always identify his work.

Please note that some images may be NSFW.
