Mother Russia

I have almost given up thinking about writing what I think about certain people, some of them are truly dreadful and ought not to be alive, let alone on this planet. To assuage my feelings about these people I am throwing myself into work and writing and wanking, well maybe not that. trust me these people are not worth wanking over, wankers yes,wanking no. I have a pleasant enough job that enables me to disappear and not speak to people for time on end, in other words it is almost ideal. I have peace and quiet, get plenty of exercise and have a decent employer who have an excellent staff restaurant which is a rarity these days and actually give a fuck for their employees. I have also it seems got rid of the two J’s. The older one i really ought to check in on again sometime, I like conversations and coffee in town with her, my ex as much as I loved her, we need to go our different ways, to preserve our sanity at the least, or mine cause at heart I am a selfish bastard. I look after my own shit first, then check on every one else. I will (maybe) call the MW later on and see how she is and if she would like to meet for caffeine and cake at the weekend. Or should I just say fuck it and do school work instead?

What else has been happening? It has been raining, bucket loads in fact, I am so glad to have decided to drive to work today, though it was more the fact my leg had packed up that decided that. Happily it is completely healed now and resting up nicely, waiting for its owner to stand up and start painting a portrait of a famous Nazi wife, this time Frau Lina Heydrich, Eva Braun is on the half way done list, not that I actually have a list just a pile of half finished work. Why Nazis? I hear you say, why not is my answer. What do you want me to do, a portrait of that senile git Biden? I might as well blow my nose and use the contents for that sadly my nose is snot free right now and shall start up again at work tomorrow. Biden is not worth a single drop of my snot, the very idea of painting him makes me feel ill, I would rather do something else.

Russia is not a communist state, Putin is not a communist, he may have served the state intelligence organ, so what which political leader of any merit has not, especially in Russia or the old USSR. Some idiots think he is a communist, Biden is a leftist, the media will not be telling you that, Biden also has lots to hide and desperately wants to win the next election. He will not. Until three weeks ago who could point out Ukraine on the map? Do you know the history of that country and its connection to Mother Russia? I do and studied it both at school and outside of that institution, I studied Russia through to higher certificate and continue to do so. Do not believe the lies being fed to you through the media, Ukraine has Nazi battalions in its army and Ultra nationalist thugs in positions of political power, their SS units were despised by their German counterparts in WW2 and noted as being ‘savages’ to prisoners: Jew and otherwise. Study history, realise the truth and turn off the television. Ukraine sold Mother Russia to the Nazi’s they are traitors and deserve to be treated as such. Without the great sacrifice made by Mother Russia in WW2 we would all be under the Nzi jack boot today… How does that make you feel?

Irma Grese, part one

art and culture, Uncategorized

I am coming to the end of a cycle on one of my art projects, that of painting Nazi’s. I grew bored of doing the interminable paintings of nude or naked women and sought a change. I have a couple of portraits of Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler on the go and several others of characters like Dorothea Binz, Luise Danz and Ilse Koch. I am working on some others including Irma Grese, The Beastess of Belsen, or The Beautiful Beast and numerous other monikers that people chose to remember her by.

there is a lot of talk about who Irma Grese was, what she did and the rest of it. Some of it, is factual, her father was an arse, her mother committed suicide after finding out about her husbands dalliances. She did not do well in school and was described as shy by her sister Helene. She later took work as a shop assistant, applied to become a nurse and eventually found herself ‘Although I protested against it’ Being sent to ravensbruck female concentration camp, where she trained to become an SS auxillary (Aufseherin) Eventually winding up at Auschwitz-Birkenau being finally captured by the British at Bergen Belsen upon the liberation of that camp. Her portrait will be forthcoming, as will another one portraying her in the film Passenger film (1963) by Andrzej Munk. The lead role, that of a female camp guard is played by Aleksandra Slaska. the film was left unfinished, Munk having died in 1961.

Irma Grese

As things are, I am having a little rest from that topic and working more on some pictures of various Domina’s, that and some work on paintings of the Holy Family. I may well be putting down a few ideas this evening onto paper, I need to replace the light house from a few years ago, as the original found a new home. This time it may go down on paper, I am not sure without looking if I have the canvas I want for it and there is plenty of paper so. Making life easier for yourself is not about being lazy, it is doing what is right for you. Finding nice things to do and doing what is right to help oneself progress in life. How many people stay all their working life with an employer they hate, in a job they detest and never fulfilling their true potential? At least they were consistent and did not manage to be sacked or leave after a few months.

I think I would be a good concentration camp guard, the idea of moving people around with a whip and a club sounds rather good fun. Especially if you have a grudge against those who have pissed you off, prevented you from fulfilling your dream. Then definitely so. Irma Grese was one of those people, she might have been an excellent nurse and certainly wanted to be so. She was also in the right or some may say wrong hands also turned into a brutal beast or at least that is what the history books tell us.

Not Irma Grese

I shall be posting the painted work as soon as it complete.
