Anne Van Alkemade for this:
I’m trapped in a world
And to whom can I mention
My days and nights
How long do I have to
take this bull,
I long for endess (sic)
To see around, people
They are false, shells,
I long not to be nothing
All my life, eccentricity
To no one ever I
On my slow and normal
With my gasping last
Convention to hell,
Mention to no one,
Pretention you are,
No longer I run.

....there was Redbubble.
And Redbubble decided there would be groups, and it was good.
There were poetry groups, writing groups, photographic groups, drawing groups, tshirt groups and vector groups.
And then along came a man with a vision - for a group that would be not the biggest, nor the most popular group or the most obscure group ...... it would be the best group!
So the Parody, Satire and Lampoon collective was formed, and they came.
And the word came down that they should take the piss and they did and it was good.
They then became A.R.S.E and it was better!
And then they were called to battle against plagiarism here, and it was won and it was good - pushed out in a sweeping generalisation here - and again they rallied and it was good.

**Cathie says: "Just in case I start believing my publicity, here's a little profile Mr Nolan did on me last year .... nothing like a little piss taking to restore normality!! ;p
Ronnie Purcell emailed this to me last week and I wasn’t quite sure why?
I think it was a call for help.
Cathie T is an exceptional artist, writer and photographer, she deserves to be sainted and possibly given a Nobel Peace Prize.
I am writing this because if I don’t Cathie T who is on the other side of my office door will refuse to leave if I don’t. Not only won’t she leave but if I try and make a any effort to depart she will beat me within an inch of my life with the large baseball bat she is brandishing.
I can hear her outside dragging it on the floor talking to her self. Repeating things like:
“I am proud
I am an artist
recognise me or
I’m remove your pelvis”
write me in a story
if not all they’ll find
will be red and gory”
Frightening stuff really.
I’m starting to wonder if she had anything to do with the disappearing animal’s from the zoo.
She is from Adelaide you know?
Cathie T was born on Christmas day in a stable just outside of Nazareth, her closet friends were sheep…….
…..Hang on I got side tracked It sounds like she’s peeling the plasterboard off the wall .
Cathie T was the only daughter of Santa Clause and Mary Christmas who grew up with elves and pixies and wild reindeer…
….. sorry, I keep stuffing up. I do believe she’s eating the books from the waiting room book case.
This whole born on the 25th of December has got me rattled.
Cathie T is a lovely person who encourages others and lives life to the fullest. Check out her portfolio it is full of stuff.
Now if I can only get to a phone and call the cops I might see Christmas as well.
Oh no… damn…. She found the cat.
Hanging in the playground
Talking to my friends
Thinking we were all the same
With familiar trends
Telling different stories
Of our Mothers plight
How they handled stressful times
Or when they’re in a fight
One girl starts to tell her tale
With big round ogle eyes
Her Mum once Yelled out “BLOODY”
In an angry screechy cry
Another told her Mothers tale
One night while in a fit
Threw her arms up in the air
Screaming the word “SHIT”!
A third girls Mum is more creative
In her verbal land
Yelling certain cursing words
About the holy man
As the tales got round to me
I broke in to a sweat
Can’t come back to my house cause…..I think,
My Mum has got Tourette’s!
Car blinkers OFF
When moving sideways
Everyday I go insane
When driving next toSHIT FOR BRAINS!
Why can’t you be considerate?
Get off the road, you IDIOT!
Avoiding mums in 4 wheel drives
Old bags with thier blinding eyes
Hateful words bounce from my lips
With temper tantrum yelling slips
Here comes that twinge back in my neck
I’m a road rage psycho angry wreck
When in my car my brain goes hazy
Incompetence will make you crazy
Thank goodness we are finally here
Give me a kiss, I love you dear
Remember to abide my rule
Be fair and nice in play at school

2008 - Really? by RubyRed
A man his sissors and his magazines. I don't think there is anyone on Red Bubble who makes art like Atomikboy.
The detail he goes to and achieves is remarkable in this age of Photoshopping pictures.
This is a fraction of his vast portfolio.
Painter, sculpture Media artist KillerNapkins (Jason to his Mum) is a stunning talent with a versatile and creative mind.
"I like creepy things and weird things " he is quoted on his profile. Check it out - he's not lying.
Who is NoFrillsArt?
NoFrillsArt is Glen Smith an exciting Artist and Teacher who has been a member of Red Bubble since August 2007.
Glen’s art is anything but NoFrills - if you scan through his portfolio you see a great eye for the absurd and great sense of satire, whether it be Art , fame or commercial Glen’s art also explores social commentary themes such as environment and advertising.
Glen is no stranger to the art scene he studied Fine Art (painting) - yes he can also paint - at RMIT University. He received his Honors in printmaking and a Dip ed. at Melbourne University. As well as being a High School arts/media teacher he is also Chair of the Geelong Arts Alliance (GAA) an arts body affiliated to Regional Arts Victoria.
The GAA also keeps Glen busy on the weekends and his days off. The GAA runs a small gallery in North Geelong called West10, which is a part of the Victorian Initiatives of Artists network (Via-N). Glen often doubles as an Arts worker instigating and coordinating community arts projects. (see link at end of story)
Glen is currently running a project with another artist David Dellafiora creating a performance and artists multiple edition around badges called ‘I know my place’. Out of the seven artists involved two other Redbubble artists are also involved, nonstop and jaclynpoole.
In such a short time on the Bubble Glen says it’s had quite an influence on his work
“It has given me a renewed passion to create through its dialog and positive encouragement in all aspects, be it kind words, favorting of works, or the coveted sale of art. Plus it’s a little addictive! After you leave say art school, many people drop out of action and stop making art all together due to not having exposure to peers and I think that is one of the most beneficial things RB does in connecting a large number of people, in the comfort of your own home, so you are bound to find artists you admire and who inspire your practice. Plus I also like the competitions and the ‘challenges’ thrown up to encourage the art making process. With my artwork just being on a canvas was never really the outcome I was looking for so seeing the work on tees wandering the streets, art integrated into life, now that’s cool.”
When asked about what style of art he preferred Glen said with his work he tried to make social comments using icons and symbols from everyday pop culture. While throwing in a little subversion, a touch of humor and hope for the best. Philosophically he just feels that one should be creative, passionate, original, inventive and subversive…but most importantly…create art.
Another side of Glen’s work is its humour and parody. Glen injects a sense of fun into sometimes serious subjects, all the time not losing sight of the message within.
