Thanks for sticking around everyone sorry for the delay in posts.

I have been pretty busy what with Christmas and my pickpocketing business in full swing.
I finally finished my degree (yaayy me).Wait..for non slang speakers, 'Yaay' is a cheer,it is not sexual.Just so you know.
I got a 1.2, which is one off what i wanted, i wanted a 1st. But ugh i had a lot of personal issues in my second and third year...actually my first one too. These included, getting involved with a   woman (soap opera story time...), getting dumped by her, getting involved with someone else,travelling round the world to see her... getting dumped by her, getting sick, GETTING AWARDED A THOUSAND POUNDS (GOOD NEWS!!!). Which i then spent on my degree show...which sucked because i was ill. 
Moving in with awesome friendly people who are still on my fb (well one is), then moving in with assholes in my third year.
With the worst landlord in history, of which i will rant about later.
Now i have to prepare for my teaching course, or masters course..im not sure. More like teaching, since its paid and who can afford a higher education these days?

In England teachers get shat on, so my robust sense of humour might come in handy.

But for now that's it.
OOh hang on i made a YT, so this is it should anyone want to add me or check it out.

My blogs getting spammed a lot also so...i might take down that link if it gets spammed too. Never have i seen so many people asking me if i have impotence. WHAT DO THESE PEOPLE KNOW I DONT?

Thanks again. Ill visit all your blogs, and my new subscribers too. THANKS.
jON.

long absence.

Apologies to all that i have been so delayed in adding to this blog.
Life has been insane and i was finishing my degree and i also got quite ill.

Thanks to everyone who has visited this blog and commented on the art i make as it goes through its stages of progression to a finished end product.

It might be a little while longer before i can post again though.
Now...
to the person who complained to google that my site featured pornography i have a message. I do not take insults lightly, i take my inspiration from Cellini.

'When certain decisions of the court were sent me by those lawyers, and I perceived that my cause had been unjustly lost, I had recourse for my defense to a great dagger I carried; for I have always taken pleasure in keeping fine weapons. The first man I attacked was a plaintiff who had sued me; and one evening I wounded him in the legs and arms so severely, taking care, however, not to kill him, that I deprived him of the use of both his legs. Then I sought out the other fellow who had brought the suit, and used him also such wise that he dropped it'.

How about i track you down huh?
I am fairly sure i can do it, lets see if i can and we will see if you want to explain to my face why you flagged my artwork.

Dr Jocelyn Bell collects her honorary degree with Tesco Burka.


Dr Jocelyn Bell discovered the pulsar a highly magentised dead star that emits immensely powerful radio waves. Here she is accepting her honorary degree form Lancaster University in a Tesco Burka.
I have been using Dr Bell  for a while now, since she faced huge dis crimination as a female astrophysics student in the sixties at Cambridge. And one had the hilarious, though disturbing, situation where her professors preferred to believe her data on the pulsars must be little green men  rather than accept the scientific conclusions of a woman that she had discovered a new astrophysical phenomenon.In fact they held a boys only tree house conference in which they considered destroying her data because of the panic it would cause.

Here she is in a short film (2min) talking about her discovery.
I am always interested in the discussion on religious coverings, since in England this is a relatively new phenomenon from recent immigrants.The discussions one finds promoted by the media are of course the worst type of  yellow journalism. With rent-a-fundamentalists and bigots helpfully shouting down the camera lense at the audience, and little actual information provided. And, more importantly , one hardly ever sees women on the platform discussing this, since this effects them, not men. Will we ever have objective journalism?

I would love to hear other peoples view on face coverings. Thanks if you comment. And sorry for my delays in posting and replying

Judith Barzi bad taste quiz.

I first became aware of the tragic story of Judith Barsi when i was looking at this Rotten Tomatos bad taste pop quiz. I am interested very much in pop culture and how it says a lot about our society, more so often than academic studies which tend to be academics talking to each other. Also i find it funny that people contribute to sites like IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes with their own creative content and the sites make huge profits out of them through advertising. Same with 4chan and icanhazcheezeburger, the public works for free, very odd.

I thought the quiz was in bad taste, but this common to the internet where peer group outrage is limited due to the relative anonymity of the internet .
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Judith Barsi who starred in'All Dogs Go To Heaven' (1989) was a rising child star.



 Whose young life was cut short by an act of extreme selfishness.


Judith's father Joszef was a Hungarian immigrant and an alcoholic who had a long history of beating women.  Joszef's first wife took their two children and fled his violent bullying.Leaving him looking for another victim.
Josezf then met  Maria, a young waitress who herself had suffered a violent childhood and sadly was pre programmed to equate violence with love, falling for a man who would beat her with everything from steel pans to his fists.

When Judith was born (1978)   she might have had a chance to escape it all for she  was photogenic which lead to offers from modelling agents which then quickly led to adverts and then movie work. With the child showing talent in performing. As the money rolled in , allowing the family a large house in Beverly Hills , so Joszefs drinking increased and his bullying of his family.
The young Judith was becoming psychologically damaged  from seeing her father beat and bully her mother. She began to self harm at just 8 years old, picking her skin, and pulling her eye lashes out. After breaking down in front of her agent   who reported what was happening to Child Services. Police began to take an interest in this wife beater and what he was doing to his family.

With his meal ticket looking to be taken away and fearing loss of control over his victims, Joszef decided to commit the ultimate act of selfish narcissism.  On Monday 25th July 1988 Joszef took a shotgun and shot Judith in the head while she slept, then murdered her mother, before setting them on fire. He then committed suicide.
Judith was only ten years old.


So many child actors become victims we are used to reading about them going off the rails in to substance abuse and having horrible and short lives, then becoming prey to the bottom feeders of journalism. But i thought it was especially tragic since she was so young and was a victim all her life to her horribly selfish father, who was not content to just ruin her childhood but denied her an adulthood as well.

I have lived next door to a man who beat his wife and the issue is very complex, since intervention rarely works, the victim must want change and their caught in this cycle of self hate.
But it is a horrible story whatever your views.

My final degree show.

The theme of the show was iconoclasm or the destruction of revered objects, which ties in to my transgressive interests.
Sorry for the croaking rambling, im going to put a soundtrack on it. The drawings were transgressive, which means showing taboo images to reveal a hidden truth, well in its most simplest form at least. The painting reads 'Conchie Cola' and is a reference to 'conscientious objectors' conchie was the shortened invective used at the time. Cocoa Cola uses armed gangs to supress union rights in South America where most of our cheap soda comes from.

The huge bit of metal with nails in it, is not some Ikea disaster, but my peformance peice. In which i dressed up as Max Hardcore the gonzo pornographer and talked about sex in art.
I have a transcript of the piece though sadly no actual footage if anyone is interested.

I think i mentioned the t shirts before. They were made on photoshop; Lewis Carroll looking up Alice on the internet, Che guevara as a homophobic rock guitarist, bacho bazi child sex slaves pimped out by international American corporation Dynacorp and BTK and Mother Theresa agreeing suffering is beautiful.

I ll be posting the close ups later.

Meantime thanks for looking.
I have been getting over food poisoning and i will be having a good moan about the people i share with who gave me it!
But ill try to make it funny.
Thanks for sticking with my blog despite my abscence.
Jonxx

Too much too young?. edited 9/7/13



I was watching this video about the commercialisation of childhood and how marketing companies are targeting girls at younger and younger ages, promoting a much older lifestyle at them. 
This video shows very young girls in adult bathing costumes, the bikini being designed for a womans body past puberty. Should young girls be encouraged to wear bikinis?
While i don’t think its some pedophile conspiracy, i do think that greedy amoral marketing companies and the greedy amoral business behind it know a good thing when they spot it. And children are the least able to resist marketing , and their parents being targeted through the children through ‘pester power’.
Should young children particularly young girls be exposed to this level of marketing?
In the nordic countries advertisement is banned for young children, allowing them a level of childhood we don’t give them in the rest of the west. Of course they can connect to it through the internet, but not having it on television and in magazines seems to be a good thing.
Do you think these outfits are ‘too adult’?






 I placed various different ages  of swimwear and also the infamous cheeta bikini as created by actress Liz Hurleys fashion range, next to an adult model wearing a similar design.

What do people find disoncerting about a young child wearing a two piece swimwear?

Work in progress since i am still reading articles on the net, watching docs, formulating opinions on this issue.

Degree show art framed and ready for hanging.

video


T
Degree show art, framed for my final year show. The art was developed from my theme of iconoclasm. The four images work with icons of culture and history or those wishing to become icons, and examine them in an adult surrealist light.

The first image is of Che Guevera, i super imposed his head on to the body of a rock musician , replicating the hysteria surrounding the image of this man, in which surface adulation is everything. The words under his guitar read 'Death camp for homos'.
Which could be a song title, but was actually part of Gueveras ideology.

The second image is American military contractor Dynecorp. Which operates in the field of nation building, a lucrative area now. American military starts a war, industrial complex earns a fortune in supplying bombs, ammunition, food and other resources . After the devastation, the nation building companies and private military contractors who are supposed to protect American civilians in their repairing of the countries infrastructure. Dynecorp is one an egeregious example of the corruption in this system.
They deal drugs , supply children to pedophilic politicians, bribe, steal and lie. Costing the taxypayer many millions of dollars.

Third is the American serial killer B.T.K, set next to Mother Theresa.
I wanted the viewer to wonder who the quote was attributed to, it was in fact Mother Theresa. An intelligent search in to her life will find both had sadistic views on the suffering of others, and both were corrupt.

Fourth is the author of Alice In Wonderland , Lewis Carroll. I wondered what he would be doing if he were alive now and it seemed to me he would be stalking the object of his obsession, Alice Liddle.
Carroll took many pictures of young girls in various states of undress and proposed marriage to the eleven year old Liddle, disturbing her family so much they banned contact between the two.

This work is in progress.

This blog is  really interesting, it is from someone i know. It is a kind of philosophical discussion on everyday things which can be really insightful. Her style of writing is very accessible. It kind of reminds me of the radio show that Bob Dylan did a few years ago in which he placed lines of poetry and music with his thoughts.


It was broadcast on the bbc radio over here
.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwqpKq7NKCM
That's an excerpt.

Check her work out thank you.

Through the Looking Glass?...no thanks!! .

I had a discussion with a philosopher who had done an article on Lewis Caroll, prompting me to inform him that Carroll or Dodgeson was a pedophile. This led me to make some art , just a rough sketch at first showing my modern day author trawling the internet for lonely young girls. I wanted to link the rumours about him with a modern context.
So i began to research Carroll really by typing 'Was Lewis Carroll a pedophile?' in to google , i thought there must be some academic research of some kind about this. I know there have been a few films and plays on this subject.
The most famous being 'Dreamchild' which actively suggested his interest in Alice was more than just a father daughter type friendship.

Well i came across this flikr account which had a few pics of alice as take by Carroll. We know that Carroll took thousands of photographs, a fair hundred of which were of young children in states of undress. Defenders of the Alice in Wonderland author say that this is simply 'The cult of the child' which was a victorian fascination with purity and innocence which tied in to gettng back to nature cults.

Anyway, the owner of the account said he had done some investigation in Carrolls background so i followed his link.
Which took me to his quite respectable looking blog.  He left another link on his blog to a site he said
called Carroll one of Englands most famous pedophiles.So i followed that link hoping for some kind of academic evidence, letters or something (We know the Through The Looking Glass authors family destroyed most of his letters and photographs after his death- by that time he was very famous).
glgarden.org...sounds normal right? The org suggested to me it was some kind of charity or a free knowledge site, maybe some kind of forum in which people can post book titles, links on the topic i wanted more info on.

Yup, gl-garden stands for  'girl love garden'. It is similar one assumes to NAMBLA or north american boy love association. In other words, it is a website devoted to the training of pedophiles.

The propoganda on their 'mission statement' immediately stopped me looking any further. I actually felt sick, because i was not expecting to encounter this.
The mission statement which i will paraphrase states they are believe abusing young girls is giving the girls democratic rights to engage in relationships with peverted older men.

I never went farther than the front page, but its a pedophiles 'how to'.

 It was disturbing to say the least to go from flikr to a wordpress blog to a website devoted to pedophiles, albeit one set up with some skill at camouflage.

I have addressed the issue of pedophiles and their actions online  on my blog.

Detailing their attempts to use Youtube to manipulate children.
http://sundersartwork.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/great-foot-dare-game.html

To their use of  mainstream sales websites to sell de facto child porn in the form of lolita cosplay films.
http://sundersartwork.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/amazon-sells-child-porn.html

Whatever your views on  the mental illness of pedophiles it appears they are using the internet in a variety of ways, covert and overt and the best defence, is as ever, education.

The seven labours of Hercules/ Jon.


I had to clean a studio space for my final show, as usual Jon and money are not a good combination. So i bought way too much stuff, you could clean the Titanic with everything i got. Yes, that is the house i am renting, and yes it is chintz city. Yes we have 'letters for us' and 'letters for the landlord' baskets. One day i will write about this house, but you might not believe it.

This the mess i had to clean up, it was everything all the second years left, it was so messy a pig would not live there, a rat would rather move, a card board box is a step up. What i am saying is, it was a mess.
The second years left all this art work laying around, which normally means it is for the bin, but since im a nice person i picked it all up and stacked it in the other room. You never know, there could be a modern picasso amongst all that crap.Yes that is oatmeal.




I got paint to paint all this as you can see this is Sunderlands answer to Banksy, does your inner art critic begin to rage?

This was the blue tack wall, or as i named it, 'ow my hand aches from pulling it all off'. Seriously a teenage boy and a subscription to a porn website would have less aching in his hand than was in mine.  


This was the room where i stored all the art of the 'artists' who left there work for me to clean and move. I fancied being a curator once, but from all the heavy lifting i don't know...




Anyway im pleased with myself that i got it all done, even though my forearms look like popeye now from sweeping, hanging wallpaper and lifting paintings.

Charlie Brown revealed.

Schultz explored lots of different philosophical ideas in his Peanuts strip. Even bringing in a psychoanalysis/lemonade stall for the characters to discuss their fears. In my version Brown is now an adult, he has given up on the 'football of life' and is finding therapy in beer and drugs.
 Schulz wrote of laying awake at night and asking the universe 'why me ?' and he said a voice whispered back ' I dunno', your name just came up is all'.

Dirty Berty's garden tips.

Ever wondered what types of plants to fill your garden with, below are a few suggestions.

                                                        Give your enemy some knobweed, watch their smile turn upside down         as they read the greeting card  'Thanks for stealing my girlfriend,  KNOBWEED!!'.              

                                                       Black mans willy ((Rhodochiton Volubilis)
                                           Apparently the don't like the cold and they shrivel  up.
If you have a black mans willy , or have seen a black mans willy , can you confirm this since i have yet to see one.

                                                          The Shag bark  (Cary Ovata)
'Does it make you horny baby?'.
                                                 Nipple wart.(Lapsa communis). If you have nipple wart..
                                                                  .seek medical help.
                                                   Stiff Cock (Diospyros Crassenevis)
                     I read that if you can give your wife stiff cock for her birthday she will be happy.
''His stiff cock is drooping. Should i give it more sunlight or talk dirty?''.

For the single guy a good gift is the cock hold herb (bidennis connata)
Though too much cock hold can make you turn blind.
This is sticky willy, once you have a grip it is quite hard to let go. Have you ever seen a sticky willy?

SHAVING YOUR DOGS NOW?.



Because the last post was a bit grim i wanted to have some fun and i came accross this bizarre website in which owners of dogs, who love their dogs can pay for their dog hair to be made in to clothes.

How ?...what?... i mean... ok Jon, explain more because my brain is gonna' explode here.
You shave your dog,
don't use Telly Savalas option  or your dog will end up looking like Kojak.

''Who loves ya' baby?''
''NOOOOO, RUNNN''.

 or comb him very well and then send the hair to the website, and they clean it, card it, then use a process to turn it in to wool . And then...they make a coat so you can be closer to your dog.
'Which one do i stick the Rosette on?''.


The customer looks happy, but now if it rains. Someone will always ask 'Why does it smell like wet dog in here?'
''Dont cut my hair off again Mum''
''woofly (lovely) coat''.
''That is mine, take it off''.
Hope you found it funny, it made me smile. The website is in German but it is safe and Chrome translated for me.

The great foot dare game.

Meet TheRandomiszer666 who is most certainly not ten years old, he is a pedophile.It comes as no surprise that where children are pedophiles will follow. And youtube has a lot of children who have unrestricted, non parented accounts.  
  What the pedophile does is they pretend to be a child themselves, easier to gain trust, their not so stupid as to ask for webcam chats or engage in sexual  messages since this can lead to them being prosecuted. Instead they can get the children themselves to make videos for them, tailored for their own purposes, in the form of  'dares'/



Did dare videos exist before the pedos?. It is a moot point, the children make a video asking for dares from their audience. So how does the adult make capital from this?. Well as we can see from Randomizer they ask for thumb sucking videos or foot dares.A foot dare is when the adult asks the child to show their feet in close up. There is also tongue dares and belly button dares.

The adults are very good at adopting the lingua franca of the young person  ' your ridiculously...blah blah' Or using text emoticons =), =D.
In this case ramdomizer operates on the scorched earth policy of making as much dares as he can to maximise high yield. 
So what is the solution?. As ever alarmist emotion solves nothing and defeats logic. Critical thinking dictates that education in a form the children can understand is the best path forward. As we can see the children got wise on their own. I have seen children making warning videos to other children telling them not to accept dares from accounts or freind them. 
It really is up to the parents to be more involved in what their children are doing on the internet and educate them so they can have fun online and keep in contact as a monitoring presence.
But i know that often does  not happen.

Much like online bullying the intervention happens too late.

Youtube is very slow to react to anything, since it has millions of users. I have complained about pedophile accounts i have come accross but as this pedophile told me, their not actually doing anything illegal. They have circumvented the law.
I initially found out about foot dares from a subscriber of mine, i was commenting on their art work when i noticed a comment asking them for dares. And so began my cursory investigation.
