In an earlier post I wrote about Grocer R.F. Maddigan’s venture into postcard distribution and provided a visual guide to the cards I knew of at that time.  Since then I have acquired images of a number of additional cards and have revised the visual listing of Maddigan cards for Prince Edward Island to show … Continue reading "Many More Maddigan Postcards"

23:00 Pres. Donald Trump looks all set to be “investigated” right out of office! »John Cairns Blog
With the exception of the news that a judge declared Obamacare unconstitutional, it has been a generally lousy few days for Pres. Donald Trump. Last week his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in jail, and it sounds like he’s really been spilling the beans on Trump and all the goings-on with the...

14:47 The Flayer - Pinup Version. »The Monkey Rodeo
I felt like doing something a little different for a shoot, originally I wanted to do something really different and fucked up, but the more I thought about it the more I came to the conclusion that really "fucked up" might be too hard to do, so I figured just a little weird work be much easier.

 In the end I thought using The Flayer piece in a sort of pinup shoot might be weird enough for most people, still a little "the usual" for me though.

06:00 That time of year again »Diary of a Squirrel
Regular readers - all five of you - will know that I like to do the occasional comic homage to my good pal, Dave. When I do, I try to draw him in the style of his fabulous and long-running movie review comic, "And yet I blame Hollywood", rather than as another woodland creature.

Dave, as you may recall, has always been a great supporter of my kooky artistic and creative projects, and helped set up this website for DOAS so I could get Squirrel out of my head and out into the World Wide Web. Thanks again, Dave!

Today's comic homage also premieres Dave's husband, Dave, also drawn in the style of AYIBH. 

Welcome to DOAS, Dave! And welcome back, Dave!

This is more sure-fire proof that being a half-sister to the Kardashians is always a good career move.

13:38 Now a few words about DAZN and all its inroads into Canada »John Cairns Blog
I was going to talk about this last week, but since DAZN aired the Canelo Alvarez fight last night (in which he beat up on Rocky Fielding at MSG), I think it’s still timely to talk about the inroads this European company has made into Canada lately, with all the sports rights they are picking...

I have a half length photo of my body with Purrl's head and I can not get it up on SC. It always returns to landscape mode no matter which way I upload it. This way works so I may try the shot this way too. It makes me laugh as Purrl came and sat there while I was photographing landscape. She wanted the shady spot.

23:51 Congrats, politically correct people, you’ve just made a hit out of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”! »John Cairns Blog
The attempt by the politically-correct fascists to censor “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and get it banned from radio playlists over its “problematic” Bill Cosby-esque lyrics (what’s in this drink?) is turning into a failure. Everyone sees it now for what it is: repressionism. Just the other day, CBC Radio had to walk back on its...

19:35 Stepping Up Against Gender Violence – Paxton Caseley Memorial Service Address »Women's Equality PEI
If I ask you to think about an example of gender-based violence, it’s likely that for most of us, some of the first things that come to mind are the tragedies and more explosive events that leave their mark on individuals, families, and at times their communities. But the sad reality is that violence begins much earlier. It […]

I have wasted my day following the drama in the United Kingdom as Tory backbench dissidents have forced a confidence vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s leadership, soon after she pulled a vote on the Brexit deal that was scheduled for this week.
