***WARNING***....Kids, don't try this at home. This man is a trained exhibitionist, and so can hold his breath indefinitely!

Seriously, Russell...you have put yourself at great risk; if someone runs you past a barcode scanner, you are going to get sold for Euro1.00 to some blind, ravenous family as wholemeal bread, and could get eaten.

have you organised for a trustd friend to keep your daily portraits cranking out if this happens?

And shaped a man from head to toe.
When it was baked, the cookie fled.
Here is what the cookie said:
Run! Run! As fast as you can!
You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man."

meanwhile, in case of sudden death, have I organised for someone to keep my daily portraits cranking out?

what, like some kind of reality tv coffin cam? Let us see how much Russell's face has decomposed today?

I like the "coffin cam" idea, Russell.

You could invite folks to sprinkle a little of your "premium mix grey parrot birdseed" into your coffin....you could have a permanent glass top on the box to let in light and hasten the decomposition...the birdseed could take sustenance from your oozing body fluids...pretty soon we could be seeing more daily pics like the wonderful "flower garden on the head" shots you occasionally post.

You could arrange for Sir David Attenborough to come on as a guest, and introduce your adoring public to the exotic wildlife that has found its way into the box.

The government could shoot you and your dependent ecosystem into space, where you could be a modern day "Silent Running" [remember that excellent scifi movie] thingo.

I think this concept has legs.

I was always very fond of Derek Jarman's idea......

he proposed being cremated and having his ash mixed into some paint.

this paint would then be used to create a new work of art.
