Happy Draw Mohammed Day Sequel!

Friday, May 20th, 2011

MohammedThere’s nothing much to say to this that I haven’t already said last year. Although I must say that oddly enough almost only Christians took offence when I last drew Mohammed.

As you can see, this year’s Mohammed has had his bomb-fuse extinguished because his anger has become diluted through the repetition of us drawing him. Also he’d rather play video-games. What is he playing? Mortal Kombat? My Little Pony? We’ll never know, but he seems much happier, bless him.

As I was drawing him it struck me how odd it is that anyone would be offended by my act of so doing. If only they knew how much I care about all of my cartoon characters. I think it’s because to draw an emotion I have to empathise with it, so Mohammed’s indignation or apathy becomes my own to an extent. Besides, Mohammed is just downright cuddly, really.

P.S. If anyone is interested in a thorough and passionate explanation of why it’s important to draw Mohammed, I recommend the following video by Thunderf00t:

Edit: I was featured on Friendly Atheist again this year. As last year I am very honoured to be among good company.

Everybody Draw Muhammed Day!

Muhammed Drawing

It is ‘Everybody Draw Muhammed Day’ today.  In the wake of South Park creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, receiving threats on their lives because of their bear-suited Muhammed, quite a few people have taken it upon themselves to all start drawing. Granted, most people draw stick-figures. However, I wanted to make something more of it this time since I already drew a stick-figure on blasphemy day. Now, if it is not obvious by my actions, I fully support the drawing of Muhammed. I support it for a very simple reason; a reason so eloquently explained by Ayaan Hirsi Ali when they interviewed her about (more…)

Science Fictional Reality

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

I awoke at about 4 am for no reason whatsoever. I had a very restless night. A couple of days ago a good friend of mine recommended me the comic Doktor Sleepless. It’s a comic-book about our lack of ability to envision the future even when it is staring us right in the face. I really like that theme because largely it describes our current condition. We are living in science fiction and most of us don’t even know it. When I bring this up people just look at me funny. Case in point did you know that teleportation is real? Yes, fucking teleportation has been invented. Granted, they can’t teleport people, cars, or food for Africa or anything. This is the objection people usually have when I try to get them excited about living in a science fictional reality.

“Oh, that’s nothing. You can’t teleport people.”

Excuse me? We’re talking about teleportation here. Actual honest to Pasta teleportation. Who cares about it not being perfected yet or whatever? It’s teleportation. Why aren’t you excited?

Anyway, to get back to my day so far. I woke up and felt like reading some Doktor Sleepless. However, since I am back at the Faroe Islands and we have little to speak of in the comic-peddling department, I downloaded a couple of issues from rapidshare. That’s the future intruding upon your reality again with you having nothing but apathy to greet it with. If the actuality of teleportation didn’t excite you, I wouldn’t expect a global, instantaneous library in which you at any time can access all of humanity’s literature on a whim to get it up for you either. Sure, it’s illegal but so was taping films from the TV onto VHS or music from the radio onto casettes, and that didn’t stop you, did it? Perhaps it did, but it sure didn’t stop me.

Anyway, Doktor Sleepless just told me to check out the album Saint Dymphna by Gang Gang Dance, so in a matter of 5 seconds I had downloaded that as well. Science Fiction I tell you, and I just published my thoughts instantaneously to a potentially world-wide audience.
