greyscale days of visual sobriety…

“Court Painter breaks from his traditional role of the Great Dominion’s preeminent portraitist of distinction to enter the Fritz Lang inspired remake of The Gambler in a series of still tableaus. His smouldering and at times untethered theatrics and over the top thespian moves as the male star, harken back to the greyscale days of  visual sobriety “, explained Press Attache A Hardon MacKay in his stirring semi coherent introduction.

Editors note: Court Painter insisted on including additional images depicting his talent in a more colourful role.

 Alberta and Saskatchewan home to 15 per cent of Canadians currently emit more than 50 tonnes of climate pollution (tCO2) per capita.
That’s three times more polluting than our national average.

Climate pollution increase since 2005 for Canadian provinces
The red bars make clear, Alberta and Saskatchewan are the only provinces that have dramatically cranked up their climate pollution.In total, the combined increase in pollution from Alberta and Saskatchewan wiped out nearly all the climate progress made in the rest of Canada.

Alberta and Saskatchewan have dramatically increased their climate pollution since 2005, by 17 per cent.

That pollution surge has wiped out nearly all the climate progress made by the rest of Canada.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said any public backlash to the removal of the province’s artistic darling Court Painter, is due to “misreporting and opposition mischaracterization” during his first public appearance since the contentious firing took place by candlelight on Friday at dusk.

Court Painter receives news of termination by candlelight.

Court Painter was removed and his independent UCP portrait studio was shuttered and chained shut. The four remaining unpaid studio interns of the studio will be transferred back to Court Painter’s dismal one car garage studio in tony Inglewood.

Mr. Kenney dismissed sputtering into his hands allegations from Press Attache A Hardon MacKay that the firing constituted political interference into the critical painterly investigations of Court Painter.

How a Royal sausage is made…

Monarchists in the Great Dominion are very excited that a new king is about to be officially declared south of the border. DJT the First is expected to be crowned once Attorney General Barr finishes laying the groundwork. Barr has long adhered to a school of legal thought that draws a vision of uncompromising presidential power from the Constitution. That ideology, in line with the unitary executive theory, is guiding Barr to get on with it and have the President declared a King, DJT the First once the impeachment distraction proves the separation of powers thingy is soooo 18th century.

Ivanka and Jared are said to be thrilled beyond belief. The brothers Trump in a short terse statement said “Haters gonna Hate!’

Court Painter has been busy in his workshop producing masterworks to mark the occasion

 

When opportunity knocks…

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer has apparently fallen out of favour with the conservative group Canada Proud , best known for its online advocacy that helped elect Doug Ford in Ontario. Conservatism as a political force in Canada they say is hanging on the edge of a cliff and Canada Proud expressed deep  disappointment with the election results and leader Andrew Scheer and are looking for an ‘appetite and direction’ to defeat Trudeau.

The obvious choice to juice up the lagging Conservative fortunes is to drop Scheer and draft an out of work senior, a man beloved for his proud Canada first reputation …the straight shootin’ right winger for the home team his entire pontificating career!
