Jesus Wuvs Me

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Jesus loves me when I'm good
When I do the things I should
Jesus loves me when I'm bad
But it makes God really mad
If I sin enough I know
There's a place that's down below
A lake of fire and awful pain
Because of sin that's in my veins
I must pray and bow to God
And follow the Bible's every law
No more shellfish then for me
And kill every faggot that I see
I won't even touch myself when I pee
God will be so proud of me
I already sacrificed my cat
So the neighbor's dog will soon be next
With my holy sword in hand
I will help clear out the land
The unbelievers all will die
And in the lake of fire they all will fry
Jesus loves me when I'm loved
And when I'm bathed in holy blood
Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so

This is a great poem, but off topic:

I recently read an interview with one of my favorite artists, Rory Hayes. In the last years of his life, he gave up doing comics (though he still respected them) and said they were mainly a means of self-publicizing. I thought about this, and it's pretty true. Many cartoonists wanted badly to get syndicated for the purpose of self-publicizing. I mean, I don't see a lot wrong with that, but it opens up a new understanding of the medium.

Hayes was a speed addict, but had a powerful technique and a completely pure, blunt additude about art.

Art is complicated. I think most true artists would still be drawing, or making music, or writing if they weren't making money off of it, but if they can get paid for what they do, they'll have more money to do it better and more time because they won't have day jobs. But then it becomes a job, and that can be a bummer. I think the main thing is that most artistic people are very individualistic and a bit self centered and don't like people telling them what to do, so at least if you can be successful enough, you can tell your boss to shove it. I could be wrong though. I don't see anything wrong with self-publicizing though because I don't buy into the whole "the only pure art is underground art" thing. Getting a lot of people to see your stuff is a good thing! Although there is the whole, "being bought by a corporation thing" which is where it gets a bit sticky.
Art is complicated!

Excellent reinterpretation, very true too, God's a fucking dick and Jesus is all "Hey, why drink bottled water when you can drink bottled wine, SHAZAM Party On Bro!"

A large base isn't necessarily a bad thing as long as you're not diluting your message in order to maintain and grow your popularity. Of course there's always going to be a certain point where people start to assume you've lost integrity simply because the appeal has become so broad that it's easy to assume there's no way you haven't sold out, which is such a strange paradox.
