Happy Birthday, Dr. Jack. Welcome back.
More paintings by Dr. Kevorkian can be seen here.
The art used above (the one on the left is the mirror image) is titled Very Still Life. A detail from this painting was used on the cover of his audio CD (reviewed here).

Update: The Virgil T. Crow sites are nomo. Sorry. You missed a gem.
Interview with Ray J. Mauer, former Archer Productions, Inc. in-house writer, about Duck and Cover. Here’s something about the catchy tune. I was surprised to learn that Dave Lambert (Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross) had a hand in that.
Less amusing content follows.
Did you settle?
Among other things, I like Nina Paley’s art at VHMET’s website. If you scroll to the bottom of the main page, you can access some animated shorts in QuickTime movie format. There’re three static samples in the Biology and Breeding section.
Q: What is the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement?
VHEMT (pronounced vehement) is a movement not an organization. It’s a movement advanced by people who care about life on planet Earth. We’re not just a bunch of misanthropes and anti-social, Malthusian misfits, taking morbid delight whenever disaster strikes humans. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Voluntary human extinction is the humanitarian alternative to human disasters.
We don’t carry on about how the human race has shown itself to be a greedy, amoral parasite on the once-healthy face of this planet. That type of negativity offers no solution to the inexorable horrors which human activity is causing.
Rather, The Movement presents an encouraging alternative to the callous exploitation and wholesale destruction of Earth’s ecology.
Dog, are you bidding adieu to your tender, lickable, dangly parts? Never fear, Neuticles are here.
To paraphrase the spiel: Neuticles are the revolutionary testicular implant procedure for pets. Over 100,000 caring pet owners worldwide have selected Neuticles as a safe, practical and inexpensive cosmetic option that allows your pet to retain his natural look and self esteem.
Can’t afford canine cosmetic surgery? Take solace in the arts:
Haiku for the newly neutered.
