Cause that picture is badly photo shopped AT ALL!!!
What an absolutely bizarre thing to do to a photo...
ever since that thing came out I've thought "wow, alien eyes!"
they pulled up all the whites out of proportion, amongst other things. Look how white all the tanks and our San Bananador flag patches look, and how white Jim's sash is. Also how my eyes ended up so crazy white, I suspect.
This photo belongs on that blog of major photoshop fail.
Yeah, IIRC Jim's sash was silver/grey.
i just photoshopped a swastika onto your photo - why do you hate the jews?
Because they're all Communists.
yep that's solid photoshop whatthafuckery... WHY? That's the real question...
That is the question of the day. Has anyone emailed SF Weekly about this, cause I'll do it. And how.
Supposedly, the White Performer Complaining On Behalf of All Brown People Everywhere emailed the Weekly and didn't hear anything back.
Well, I'm not sure what she wanted to complain about, but I just want to give them shit for this horrible photo shopping. In fact, I'll CALL them. I'm already irritated with them since they used a photo off the DNA website without asking or crediting it (it belonged to Mr. Girling).
Also, I agree with other comments that this photo really is kind of terrifying. I am going to be having nightmares about ari and you chasing after me with machine guns and strangely glowing eyes.........
I should clarify that I want to complain about the fact that it looks like several of the people in the picture are wearing dark make up, not just that it's generally bad photo shopping.....though wow, it really really is.
I've never been a big fan of Talk of the Nation. there's almost never enough substantive discussion and instead the NPR equivalent of talk show mundanity.
I didn't realize Neal Conan was a rightwinger but it sure makes sense of some of his programming.
Also, this person complains about a poster? and a clearly badly photoshopped one at that? Really?
The sour grapes are strong in this one.
I don't know that Conan is, but he smells that way. I remember him being extra-special one morning when John McWhorter was on, shortly after the huge spike in cross-burnings and noose spottings all over the country. He was straight-up hostile to anyone who called in to disagree with Whorter's assertion that black people should just "ignore" racist displays.
As for the show--this wasn't even a poster. It was one of the pictures taken at the show by photographers from a local weekly paper. We had no control over them. And she knows that.
I always wondered what you lot would look like in an 8-bit video game.
Seriously, that photo is terrifying.
What the FUCK? Is this someone we know, or just some random douchebag? I hope to hell she's getting some serious "oh no you DIDN'T!" from people who actually... bothered to pay attention...
She's performed at HHR before, but not in a couple of years, I'd reckon.
Looks like you all got caught in a bad spray-tanning booth.
aww, c'mon, let's name some names here...

I wanna know, if as Zombies, you've escaped being baptized by the Mormons, after you've "died" or not.
You could tell her that the photographer tried to do White Face (clown base) makeup too, but this resulted in too much glare to get a good shot.

some people would rather spew bile and cause drama than focus on their own art (or in this case, lack there of)
