Flaking out...

Well, I have this blog and I have the urge to show you something that is not concrete, but abstract and ephemeral, simple and complex at the same time--in other words, let's get a little flaky here:

Check out the following images and let your mind wonder....

i love the fact that this guy refused to open his eyes..
