Caption: Boycott Christmas! The Christmas Resistance Movement. The greedy capitalist oppressors are using guilt to manipulate consumers into purchasing mass-produced "gifts" for their friends and loved ones! They want you to believe love itself is a commodity which can be exchanged for commercial products! While there are an infinite number of other ways to express love, and 364 other days to give gifts, they insist you must buy things for Christmas--whole industries depend on it! This year, don't play along! Don't buy Christmas presents! Don't buy Christmas cards! Don't buy Christmas decorations! Don't feel guilty! Boycott Christmas. Sabotage commerce.

That's how my parents got their dog fixed!

Caption: This tape player doesn't work. Maybe it's like that on purpose. Why would anyone make a defective product on purpose?! Simple. Employee sabotage! See the capitalists who own the company that manufactured your tape player exploit the employees who actually do the work! They're trapped by economic necessity slaving for "the man" on degrading, meaningless production line tasks! Messing things up is one of the only ways a worker can express dissatisfaction! In a system where almost all their power and dignity is stripped away from them, sabotage can make a difference! So when you open that crappy product, when that appliance breaks as soon as you plug it in, when the goods you purchase are riddled with gaping conspicuous flaws - it means another blow has been struck for the REVOLUTION!! I still want my money back. Sure! I only work here!

Caption: Ah, puny earthlings! Destroying a species has never been so simple! Have you prepared the neural combustion code? All we have to do transmit it over their so-call "computer networks"! Millions of worker drones staring helplessly at their screens will be fried instantly! It's as if the humans were asking for it, sitting in front of those terminals like that! They're sitting ducks! Ha ha ha ha ha! So that's why I'm not buying a stupid computer ok? Technophobe!

Caption: Whew! You know, it might seem like I enjoy man-bashing but I really don't! For one thing, not all men are jerks. I don't want to bash "nice guys" like my friends here. Hi! Hello! "Jerks" and nice guys are abstract concepts anyway! What I really want to bash is jerky behavior and you don't have to be a jerk to act like a jerk. Hmm? What are you implying? And people confuse jerky behavior with wanting sex! No no no! Sex is good! What's really tragic is how some men try to be "nice" denying their sensuality. I don't want to encourage that. The jerky behavior isn't about sex as much as treating women like objects. I'm not a sex object, but I am a sexual being. I want my sexuality to be acknowledged .... without being seen as a toy or a sexual commodity for men! 'Cause the fact is I like men! Please don't touch me without asking first. Why?

Well, I hear she's been seeing (insert celebrity name here), the famous T.V. star!! Like ohmigod!! Does that mean he's gonna divorce (insert celebrity name here), the famous spokesmodel?! Would you two shutup about celebrities?! Celebrities aren't real! They're consumer products!

And you're emotionally involved with them than with your own real lives and relationships! Sheesh! Ohmigod! Wasn't that Nina (tm) the famous cartoon character?! I hear she's dating Elvis the famous postage stamp!

Caption: Do my thoughts come from me or do they come to me? Maybe thoughts are just floating around out there, waiting for someone to think them. What if thoughts have their own agendas and are just looking for a human being to do things on their behalf? Like those really compelling thoughts, the ones that drive me to some sort of action - like say, drawing a comic strip - maybe they're just using me!! Chomp! And if I should see through their sinister game, outlive my usefulness, they'll .... Oh no! It got Nina! What if I'm next?!

Caption: What we say dictates what we think. Don't be ridiculous. Thus, our words can also dictate our actions. Bullshit. It's scary - Language control becomes mind control. Oh my goodness. Our language, any common language, permits its speakers to put words into the minds of others! Scheisse! But if everyone and spoke their own language, we'd have independent thought! We'd spontaneously create a new society! Yes! Yes! That's a great idea. But how?!

Caption: "The R-Word". "Relationships". What a tired, old worn out topic. Nina would forget about them altogether if it weren't for people smooching everywhere she looks. Slurp. Drool. Slobber. Disgusting…I wish I were doing that…. Even not, Nina's brain leaps about wondering how she's going to get the relationship of her dreams. Cut that out! Wonder ponder ponder. Experience would suggest there in nothing you can do to "make" a relationship happen. At least not the kind of relationship you want. Yet Nina always wonders, is it really our of her control? Do these things really just happen on "God's terms"?? You bet your ass, honey. Voice o' god. Nina has the nagging fear that we hill eventually get into a romantic relationship, but with someone she doesn't like. Sigh. All those cute guys around. Too bad I'm stuck with Mondo here. Oh well, "beggars can't be choosers". So why does Nina yearn for a relationship when she knows what a pain there are? Pine yearn crave year. Cuz you're a dumbshit. Voice o' Negativity. Maybe it's due to those pesky hormones exercising their power... Go on! Hup! Get yerself a man! Hormones. Hey! ....Or perhaps, it's due to the deep yearnings of Nina's "child's within" for paternal love. Waaa! I want Daddy!!!! Shut up! Would you shut up!? Nina hasn't quite come to terms with all these forces at work within her, and so she feels a little strained. Strain strain uuurrghh.....But she knows there's no point in trying to tell her heart what to do. Look I'm drivin' this train, so quit hassling me! Nina thinks there's got to be an answer to all these relationship dilemmas. What's the @*?#!! answer?! Oh God No, not that !! The end?

Ecology freaks driving cars; health nuts eating candy bars …. Yoga students taking dope; zen monks watching daytime soaps .... Macrobiotics munching cake; total vegans eating steak?! ... Don't freak out, it's not a crisis; even the virtuous have their vices.

Caption: A lot of people tell Nina: Don't be so negative! Be happy! Get a positive attitude and wear a big smile!! Flowers n' sunshine! Everything's beautiful! Dark cloud o' gloom. Ironically, these people don't make her happy. Be happy, dammit! I'm sick of your goddam negativity! Even so, she still tries to take their advice. Hi Nina! How are you? Just peachy! That's great! God. This is hell. Twitch, twitch. But she can't stand it!! Yeaargh!! In contrast, Nina also knows what genuine happiness feels like. La! Sproing! And she believes the truly happy people she knows don't hassle her for being negative.

Caption: Housemates from Hell. Nina didn't mind at all when Sharyn's German boyfriend Jens came to stay at their little house in Santa Cruz. He's a nice guy, and they're such a cute couple…However, after a month, tensions began to build. It's good to know I live with quality people who share their space and don't put up walls around themselves. Uh-huh. Privacy peace & quiet = toast. Nobody said anything, though. Stab! Anything wrong? Death! Yeah! Kill. Blah blah. No. Nothing wrong, no problem. Soon Nina and her other housemates began talking about it. He's too low energy. All the extra noise and talking interferes with my meditations. He smokes and drinks and just bugs me. Jens eventually confronted Nina...Zo, I unterstand you are nut zateesfied vis me. You bet your ass! You play horrible music! You leave cigarette butts in the backyard! I have to pay rent to put up with that shit! Get lost, already! Er, I'm sorry, go ahead and stay here as long as you like. How could I say that? I'm despicable. It's good to know you're a quality person.

Caption: "How My Ears Lost Their Virginity". Like my new earring, Nina? Ohh neat! I think I'll go get my ears pierced! Really? You're getting your ears pierced?! Can I do it? Can I pierce 'em? I just love the feel of jabbing metal into human flesh! The next day at professional jeweler's .... I'm so excited! This won't hurt a bit. SCRANCH! That'll be $14.95 plus an extra buck for the disinfectant you'll have to apply twice a day for the next two months. Disinfectant? Later ... Like my new earrings, guys? Just what you need, 2 new holes in your head. Hey, did I ever tell you about that time something snagged my earring and pulled it through my ear backwards? It was stuck in my ear for weeks! Boy was it gross... Epilogue: When I finally removed those first earrings, I dropped a backing down the drain. @*%!!. Since then I've let the holes close up.
