Named after the approximate time that David Acevedo
passed away. An alternate version of this was reproduced in grayscale
on the cover of the YLEM newsletter, Volume 14 No. 8 August 1994. This

Later on parts of the image were modified on the Mac with Photoshop. For
instance the quasi-cubist treatment of the still life in the lower left

funny old-fashion adult magazines that had tape over the people's eyes
to obscure their identity.
