Governor "Hot" Rod Blagojevich - Portrait of a Bastard

(viewed 591 times)
this is governor rod blagojevich. code name: "Hot Rod." this is also the
opinion of the vast majority of state employees, regarding our fearless
leader. in the top right corner is what he wants to do to me and

the bowels of the motor inn

the squalor really doesn't show up well here. for that i apologize, and
i'll try to do better in a future attempt. at any rate, this filthy pit
is where i am "valet" parked every day. i say valet in quotes because of
the two guys working at this shithole, one is a child molester (verified

insane. the building is god-knows-how-ancient, and literally infested
with pigeons. the feathers, droppings, and broken eggs carpet the floor
of the upper level where the cars are parked during the day, as well as
the area i've come to refer to as "the dungeon." it's a half-basement
area, where the pigeon shit is crusted an inch deep or more in the
corners, and all manner of discarded tools, benches, and shop materials
are quietly rusting away in the darkness. the only light comes from the
fluoro tube pictured here, and through some broken windows. there are
old tires, a row of theater seats, old metal signs, some type of small
car under the pictured tarp, and an active population of both airborne
and terrestrial vermin. i have to step on broken pigeon eggs to get into
my car. more than one thing is dead and decaying in some corner or
behind some debris. the stench is utterly, horrifically, unbelievable.

for the privelege of enduring this toxic waste dump i pay four dollars a

from work. they're a total mystery, their creator never came forward.
people would find these in a stairwell window every other day and my
desk became a dropoff location for them. they are maddeningly without

this is a partial view; the full lineup was impossible to fit

The Cheesecake Factory

this is the first pic i took with the phone, from a nondescript
starbuck's counter in barnes and noble. face to the wall, back to the
people; in my own very little world.
