Soul Trapped Canari .. and 300 posts!

Maybe she should just flip them the bird!

I made this one while sort of coming down off a painkiller high, and my mind really wanders more than usual during those moments. I thought about different conspiracy theories involving Jim Morrison ranging from a lookalike dying so he could wander off in anonymity, a CIA operative placed undercover to keep tabs on the underground movement of the late 1960's, to tales of Voodoo practices and him deciding to shuffle off his mortal coil.

It was there that my mind drifted to when I saw this picture, and the wordplay involved popped right into my head. The story itself took a little while to mold to where I wanted it to be. I thought a bit more atmosphere would work, so I made the location New Orleans, for obvious purposes. Its such a mystical place, and I thought of Lake Pontchartrain because of a song by Ludo.

Looking at it now without the aid of medication, I think the caption is a bit disjointed, but I've made much worse, and I just adore the photo. Overall, I think its a very stylish looking caption, even though I have a few gaps in logic.

A few posts ago, I hit 300, which is a nice round number. I have almost 250 members, and almost 1400 comments. The blog will also top 1.7 million page hits probably in the next week .. all this is for people that are keeping score.

DISCUSSION QUESTION: Should I keep trying to come up with discussion topics, or do people just want to talk about whatever caption I am posting? Figured I'd ask since I'm making my way back to posting a few times a week.


  1. Cgts on 300 :) Love how you weaved the kinkiness of the City That Care Forgot

    1. Thanks! I was really trying to play up the atmosphere of New Orleans.

  2. I really enjoy your discussion topics. I may not always feel the need to respond to them, but I really enjoy a lot of the discussions that have come from them. If people want to discuss the cap they are of course always free to do so. And if you want to talk about the cap, it can always be included in your discussion topic.

    Oh, and congrats on the stats!

  3. If I come here it's because of the witty and intelligent humor you usually show around your posts, the chilly discussion - or hot -

    Many times a week, I enjoy to come out here and see what you have posted and If I have the time I enjoy to make comments on your posts discussions. So yes, keep coming them :)

    Congratulations on your 300 posts!

    Hugs and Kisses Alectra

  4. Thank you to all for the congrats!

  5. I've enjoyed the discussions here. I think it helps set your blog apart from others and offers something fun for those that create and those that enjoy captions, to do. lately I haven't felt like jumping into open discussions, but when I do, it's nice to know there's a blog out there that is looking for someones differing opinion and own experiences involved in this hobby.
