Pootin’ Tootin’ Rasputin.

It’s been awhile since I did a random middle of the night post. So here ye be, land lubbers!
Yesterday I attempted to take a day to just chill. Maybe play some video games, listen to some music and what not. By the end of the night I was back at the drawing table. It’s hard to stop sometimes. Though, last night was taking a break from drawing with, yep, more drawing. Just drawing for the heck of it. It was great.
I started watching the Biography Channels show on Rasputin “the mad monk” on Netflix. I was almost immediately at my drawing table.

Pootin’ Tootin’ Rasputin:

I love that this guy has been taken as one of the most vile, evil, mystical guys to ever exist. But what it comes down to is he was an ass hole that stared you down, was a sexual deviant and was insanely hard to kill. Don’t get me wrong, I love this guy, he was a freak. He did some crazy stuff, but the character of Rasputin is way cooler than Rasputin himself. That’s saying a lot because that guy was pretty freaking interesting! I mean, what did they do, poisoned him, clubbed him and beat him, threw him off a bridge into freezing water and the guy was STILL found alive!? Crazy. He certainly earned his legend in the end.
Anyway, it was late, I had a few beers and sketched this out while I was watching it.
I just started Jeepers-Creepers and am thinking I am getting the urge so, who knows…

    History has recorded and passed along all the myths and rumors that the aristocracy spread about Rasputin to discredit him. They depicted him as vile and evil, the same way they depicted the oppressed Russian Jews. In fact, he advocated equal rights for the Jews, who were deprived of all rights and confined to a ghetto – and slaughtered on a regular basis. Russian society was so anti-Semitic that anyone who helped the Jews was considered a traitor. All Jews were considered to be spies. Rasputin never harmed nor killed a soul in his life. He was a healer.
    The Tsar, on the other hand, sanctioned the slaughter, by the military, of entire villages of Jews, not to mention sending unarmed men into battle. He had a lot of blood on his hands. So, who was the evil one?

    In addition, it was hypocritical of the nobility to accuse Rasputin of womanizing and drinking, when they themselves consumed French champagne and vodka by the case, and were often afflicted with venereal diseases due to their own promiscuity.

    This is a case of history being written by the powerful, not by the common man. For more, see the website The Real Rasputin: http://therealrasputin.wordpress.com/
