Have One on Me by brusierkee Have One on Me by brusierkee
ďAt night, I walk in the park, with a whip, between the lines of the whispering Jesuits, who are poisoning you against me. Thereís a big black spider hanging over my door. Canít go anywhere, anymore. Tell me, are you with me?Ē [link]

Despite the limited color palette that the artist used, ~seanchaithe was able to make a very impressive illustration in Have One on Me. The scene is really full of life with a great impact on story telling. The details are so surreal, giving this picture a touch of a whimsical approach in drawing. This is truly wonderful!

It's the lyrics from a song. It's by Joanna Newsome and it's called "Have one on me" ^__^ It's really good, and I don't think she meant to offend you.
hmmm, I guess maybe. but obv she chose the lyrics for this particular drawing, and idk. it's like reverse discrimination sometimes, so I'm against generalizing. do you know? but I'm not offended, I'm just championing anti-discrimination, not all Jesuits are "poisonous" believe me, they are the most open-minded group in the Catholic church. a lot of people feel safe discriminating against certain religions like catholicism, but they'd never dare discriminate against ones like Islam or judaism, and not because they don't want to but because they are afraid. there is just as much reason to discriminate against other religious groups as there is to Catholicism but you see it a lot less bc people just feel safer, like, shitting all over the church and her various orders. maybe if I saw another piece that had accompanying lyrics that said, "oh, those Shiites poisoning me against you" or something like that I'd understand that this artist is not discriminatory just descriptive, but if it's just against one religion or one order, then you have to think about the artist's agenda :/ it's all about seeing whether an artist is descriptive or manipulative, those are the two main filters

Okay, to be completely honest, I did not understand all of that... For instance your example with the Shiites, wouldn't that still be discriminatory against a certain religion or order? But anyway, I do agree with you that those lyrics were probably not the best to pick, especially since there are so many other lines in that song that don't point out any sort of person or religion or anything. And I can't have as much of a stand on this as you do, because I obviously do not know as much about Jesuits as you.... I actually hadn't even known they existed before this song, nor did I know who they were. And, though I cannot say for sure what this artist was thinking at the time that she chose these specific lyrics, I would guess that she probably just thought of that line and decided that they were good. I may be very wrong though, in which case that was not very nice of her and she should not be discriminating against any sort of religion...
haha you're right, it was a bit confusing what I was saying at some points, I realized, I'm sorry. basically, with that example I was saying that if you're going to make a point against religiosity then you should use various examples, not just one example because then you're just slandering. I am for making a point against religiosity, but am against the attack of one particular religion. I find it offensive that an individual would have a problem with just one aspect of a particular religion and not relate it to a more general point; like, if your problem is with religious radicalism, then make it a point to say just that. don't name just one religion (or one order, like the Jesuits) because then it is disrespectful, all religions tend to have the same goal: to make the world a better place. whether they do that or not is irrelevant to the fact that it is their purpose. there must remain, I believe, a sense of respect for that while still being critical of the negative aspects of religion. whether it's Christianity, Islam, Judaism, or Satanism, they all aim to give meaning to the human life, an artist should have respect for that basic right (to find meaning in life, isn't that the point of art as well?) hope that cleared things up, and didn't make it more confusing :) it's hard to get meaning across through only text

thx for responding btw

Oh, now I understand what you meant, and it's fine =p And I agree with you completely, If you have a problem with a certain part of a religion, say what part it is, not just that the whole religion is awful. And no problem, I love having conversations like these =) Though, as you said, being only through text can sometimes make it quite difficult.
