Fools! Jesse Ventura is working for the government!

He even admits in the commercials for his series that he’s been on the inside.  He’s going to “expose”  all these ridiculous conspiracies to distract you from the real secret agenda of the government:  Replacing meat with tofu.

Jesse Ventura, the governments newest distractor.

Bacon + Meat = Art

Finally, I get around to writing a bit about my favorite 20th century artist, Francis Bacon.  I have long been fascinated with his delicately executed yet highly disturbing images.  Best of all, his name is Bacon.  And he painted many images of meat!  What could go better on SSG?

Images in this post have been borrowed from http://www.francis-bacon.cx/ which I highly recommend.

I was going to include a brief biography, but Wikiepdia does an excellent job if you’re interested:

Now, on to the important part – the paintings.  Although not meat-themed, Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion is his first important work, and is an excellent introduction to his style and techniques.

I see a lot of meaty shapes and colors in those images.  But it gets better.  Painting, 1946 is a full-blown meat festival, respendent with carcasses and entrails.

Bacon had preoccupations with many different images he had seen during his life.  One of those images was a portrait of Pope Innocent X by Valazquez.  Below is the original painting.

And here is one of Bacon’s works based on that painting, Figure with Meat.  Great title!

If you find his paintings fascinating, as I do, use the links included above to explore and discover more.  Bacon is yummy!

Postscript:

I just found this image.  I’m very excited.  I’ve never seen this before.  A photograph of Francis Bacon with meat.
