But first let me explain.
There are two types of pictures.

The pictures that I took BEFORE the brown acid kicked in.

Like this of Texxx (aka Goblin), Ned (Big Art Group), Michael Warner (author of "The Trouble with Normal") and Glamnerd (Artfag Extraordinaire aka Rob Roth).

And lots of love as Michael Cunningham congratulates John Cameron Mitchell on his ten minute standing ovation at The Cannes Film Festival. John's new movie "Short Bus" features lots of Motherboards people including our own pretty pony Pinto.

Gregory T. Angelo, editor of NEXT magazine totally freaked out on the brown acid.

Look for lots of bright colors in the next issue of NEXT which I'm sure they are editing right now.
