Art with a social message

As anyone would know, genetic modification of the environment is a new and exciting science with great potential to benefit humankind. However, as any unbiased viewing of the New Zealand film Black Sheep will show, genetic modification can have unintended consequences. Also, it will inevitably cause the creation of a new species of flesh-eating wolf-sheep - or 'were-sheep', if you will.

Clearly, we must proceed cautiously.

The film also raises issues of the environment, the precious Maori heritage of New Zealand, the culture of New Zealand's Scottish ancestors, and sheep's testicles. Thank you for your time.

Next week in 'Art with a social message', we will examine the feminist message of Russ Meyer's Beyond the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens! Bye for now!

Oh god, I'll have nightmares now that I've seen that picture.

I'm sorry. I shall never show pictures of hippies at midnight again.

My latest encounter with 'Art with a social message'? Yr 9 Drama class interpreting your famous Melbourne playwright Ray Lawler's "Summer of the Seventeenth Doll" ... Queensland cane-cutters are well hung. Their portrayal of 1950s Melbourne barmaids is priceless."Deportment, boys. Deportment - knees together!"

Thought you were posting pictures of your new-found friends from YourSpace, or "Space" or "Face", or perhaps even work colleagues in real life and real time.

That's Beneath the Valley of the Ultra-Vixens.

Or so I've heard.

Tim obviously doesn't know his ultra-vixens.
