After everything that has gone down this past two weeks, Europe is in panic state. This past weekend the Belgian authorities recommended people to hide under the blanket due to the threat of a terrorist attack, just in case they could catch a cold or get blown up by a bomb.
In maximum alert situations, society has always tended to take cover in their houses, piling up one against each other and lighting candles to Virgin Mary, praying it would all pass as quickly as possible. However, panic in the digital era is not channelled through faith, but through the freak and nerdy, as you do and as it’s, in the very end, the only true religion.
In the face of police asking to avoid posting in the social media about the security measures they were taking, Belgian citizens started to flood the Internet with cats to confuse terrorists. The net’s favourite animal turned into the best way to fight fear. Jihad cats, transvestite cats or cats vs. cucumbers were what saved Belgians from horror. Let us all learn from them, cats will be and always will be the solution to evil.
The obsession we got for hands is growing: we look at our fathers’ hands, our friends’ ones, the hands of the hot bartender of the corner bistro… We check all of them, except the ones of magicians, which are a bit creepy. Before the existence of La Monda, we would look for the eye colour, the perfect smile or the best backside, but now we’re happy with nice photogenic hands. That’s why we bring you John Spannos. He is THE master in portraying hands; he combines them with colour and a sense of humour, sometimes even a bit of fashion… and voilà! This is, once more, love at first handshake.
