"blue.hearts"

I am currently artistically distracted with the NY governor/escort story - in part because it took down someone who might have become president and because of my somewhat ambivalent interest with media attention and what makes for a good fifteen minutes of fame, possibly fortune. I have downloaded the escort pics from her MySpace Music site (she has more than 7 million visits) and have incorporated them here and in some images below.

A picture of nothing, somewhat blue and empty. Going to MOMA at lunchtime - I have not been there for weeks.

Renamed image because I was inspired by Lisa's latest collage. Blue hearts. Happens to everyone sometime.

No idea what the story was but there's a story rolling out to a similar sounding script here. A high profile business man led his investment company into destruction after dodgy deals and nights booking out the whole of the high class brothel. Every woman in it. Ironically called blue chip.

Opps, like the title by the way! Seems to suit this well!

I hated the press conference in which his wife had to stand loyally by his side. If I were her, I would have refused to do it, no matter how big the pressure on me. The guy is a jerk. Not because of what he did, but because he was actively involved in fighting against the very act he committed. What a hypocrite for saying how wrong he had been and how sorry he was.

Very nice image, John.

I stole it.

All I want to say is I hope you made it to the MOMA and that you had a nice time, one of my favorite places.


Enjoy the weekend my friend!

yeah the guy prosecuted escort services and played the white knight while at tghe same time addicted to beiung escorted. And the woman writes on here MyhSpace that she was "abused" whean apparently she crashed her stepdad's Porsche and demanded a new one and was refused. So she ran aaway at 17.

Better than a soap opera, although I feel very sory for wife and their daughters. Incredible public fall from all grace.

I can see why you may have been curious, along with a lot of other people. She must have been some escort to risk scuppering your chances like this. In fact I may go and have a look myself.
