ZZ Top, Long Beards and Shampoos…

Woke up today, only to find out there’s been a local protest held in front of the cathedral, “where gay activist assembled to protest against church and its determination on promoting its own views”. Activists are protesting by french-kissing and grabbing attention, occupying the central square. Then war-veteran associations and soccer-fan groups arrived, protesting against everyone. With no intention to ridicule neither of parties involved, is it just me or is there a certain irony in this? Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t bother myself thinking about either of them too much, but somehow I find all this ridiculous. These sort of things only end-up raising intolerance and antagonism, if you ask me. We should all stop being petty about each other, learn to be tolerant, and stop aggressively intruding our ways on others. I think if we all learned to do this, we would find our place under the sun, and these differences wouldn’t even be brought as important. Then we would trull be free to concentrate on more important things, rather than other people’s preferences, religious views, orientation or similarly irrelevant subjects. I apologise for my occasional philosophic thoughts, but I’m sure you already got used to them ;) To make it up, check out Garner’s billboard campaign I came across earlier. No, it’s not just bikers – there’s much more going on if you look closer!

  1. Not here to read about your personal political rants. Which, BTW have hints of leaning to one side. Which creates exactly what your claiming needs to stop???

    Cool, artistic illusions though… thanks!

  2. It is interesting the way the females blend into the males creating beards from the females’ hair.

    In regards to your philosophical comment… tolerance is not imposing one’s own values on others. However, lately, there is a surge by some, imposing their values on the majority creating what might be called a permissive society where anything goes. Where will this stop before almost anything goes?

    1. @Al Loehndorf:

      How is a “permissive society” where “anything goes” one where values are being imposed?

  3. All I have to say is that civil rights aren’t gained by sitting on our hands and wishing everyone loved each other. Gays all over the world are very harshly discriminated against, and that won’t change just by wishing. I’m very much a pacifist myself, but there are some things that just need action to make change.

  4. I once saw a man with a beard like the second one, only not as long. But it was as wavy and silky as hair on someone’s head-not that I stroked it to see, of course.

    I suppose that the ‘shampoo’ should have made me see these ones before I did.

  5. There’s a wall between the male and female models. His head and arms are stuck through at a higher angle so that her hair makes the beard but her arms are through holes also so they don’t bunch up under his shoulders. Look at the shadows, She’s too close to the wall for them to be standing together.
