Minnetonkascenes interviews OJ.- A breakfast meeting uncensored.

Minnetonkascenes asks: “O.J. is short for orange juice, isn’t it?"

Mr. Simpson replies: “Why yes, that is true. They used to call me “The Juice”, I think it was some sort of compliment. I am not sure... When I ran I just squirted through the holes made by my blockers”

Minnetonkascenes:” You were a great running back and orange juice certainly is a refreshing drink in the morning. Mr. Simpson, if I may call you that, how do you celebrate Thanksgiving?”

Mr. Simpson; “ Oh, I get together with my kids and we eat turkey and stuffing... you know pretty much the traditional thing with a brief reading of the Mayflower Compact. No steak knives though. Can’t have those around anymore”

Minnetonkascenes asks: “Why is that?”

OJ responds; “Well, they are too self referential, you know, Kantian self-criticism. I am a logical positivist by nature and Luwig Wittgenstein, the early Wittgenstein, states that we live a contextual set of definitions......any way no steak knives.”

Minnetonkascenes: Well OJ, that's pretty much all I’ve got”

OJ; “Thanks, and may I say that you take very nice pictures”

Minnetonkascenes: "Thanks OJ"

I had forgotten he used to play football... And vaguely that he was in movies... Back then, "Simpson" wasn't automatically a funny name, either. How times have changed, Felix.

No, this is a phoney interview. Like most interviews. It is just my way of saying: Mr Simpson, you have gotten a lot of press, even your name, perhaps your whole existence from the media "OJ". Now go away.
Our true Thanksgiving gift was that people objected at a grass roots level to the latest OJ "how I would have done it" interview, and it was cancelled.

I don't have a Flicker account, so I hope it's ok to comment here. I just saw http://www.flickr.com/photos/minnetonkascenes/305021843/ and ... ummm.... am speechless - typeless. It's so bright and pleasing and the more I learn about colors, the more one appreciate art like that.... Thank you for sharing.... What's the material? My uneducated buess is oil pastel on white paper??????

Meg,
You are correct. (For other non-flickR people, Meg is refering to one of my new postings on FlickR)
I used oil pastels, Acrylic watercolors on white Arches cover stock.
