IMAGE TAPING #2: Plastic revolution

Wherein I add text from random bits of media that I am currently consuming to images that I am working on:

"
...Parker stumbled and nearly... ...dead body... ...icy creek. Flies rose up, angry cloud, then settled again, ignoring him. Was this his history? No, history was now the loathing for a perfect body... ...empty closet... ...cleaned of sweat and dirt. A hologram reality. Inside plastic shell."

2Quiche: love space monster video, it's just awesome.

2fucoid: great pic., hope your soldiers are good and in case they grow big (under the influence of radiation or something:) they won't try to destroy humankind:)
