acquiring rights to use
If you'd like to use any of my stories, articles, photos, or tattoo designs, please contact me; my email address is michaelʘemuu.net. If you want to quote me, go for it. Many people have had my ink done, and some people have used my photos for books, derivative works of art, etc. These people asked my permission, and I've almost always said yes.
(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)
On the endless saga of Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto; "It shouldn’t have had to come to this. I’m so tired of getting up every morning and wondering, 'What will it be today?' I’m so tired of giving the benefit of the doubt again and again, only to be let down again and again. . . . Somewhere a responsible adult has to appear, draw a bright moral line, tell the truth and say unequivocally what won’t be tolerated. Somebody has to do the right thing."
