Another Awkward Glimpse Into My Past

I woke up with this song in my head. Don't you dare judge me!

Now I'm going to excuse myself and go on vacation for a bit. Laterz.

Still working on finding a happy medium between line quality and white balance. It's a bummer.

I'm back! Manga style!

Click to enlarge

Many thanks to AlphaJammer for lending me his copy of Gurren Lagann. I decided not to bother with captions this week because it's really way more fun to draw and decide what the story is going to be based on what I determine myself capable of drawing. Reader's should also note I elected to use pencil this week, and favored a high res photo over a scanned image. So I'm kinda experimenting here because...well I guess because I can do whatever I want.

I've had it in mind for some time to experiment with an original idea for a new weekly strip almost certainly meaning I'd have to abandon this one (not that anyone cares). But circumstance and other priorities (playstation) keep delaying me from making much headway. So for now I'm settling for drawing myself into a mecha comic for the next month, as a chance to experiment with drawing different subjects, and as an homage to some of my favorite manga, which, oddly enough inspired the desire to write, but not the confidence to draw. At least not until I entered the bad half of my twenties. Go figure.

I also want to add that I'm open to suggestions for the next series of panels...and mad nerd points to anyone that can ID the mecha design I ripped off. Your clue is "The Lynn Minmay Defense."

Oh yeah, I also got around to making another movie poster during my sabbatical.

And please excuse my sloppiness! My PC is temporarily down, so I'm doing the best I can without access to any of my stuff this week. Since I can't manually change some of the hyperlinks on a Mac (lame) there will be some broken or weird links happening on my site. Like you care.

No Comic Monday

No comic today, because I'm in the middle of conforming huge raw files for an and my legitimate excuses.

In lieu of a new drawing, here is a video of John and I being total dweebs.

Kesha probably hates us.

The Only Good Tea Bagger Is... be fair, the only good tea bagger is someone that gets the irony behind a group of Homophobic Conservatives willing to adopt the name "Tea Bagger" to describe their collective political ideology. I always understood that
this was the accepted definition of "tea bagging."

I think this comparison is pretty hilarious, though a little disturbing considering one clip is from a movie made 13 years ago by someone who actually lived through the Nazi regime and probably has a more informed opinion about "socialist bastards." It's also worth pointing out that life all to often ends up imitating art...especially art that seemed radical and somewhat campy at the time of it's making.

Nerd Rant

There's a certain grunginess to '80's sci-fi that disappeared when CGI became a standard. The ease and range of stuff you can achieve with computers might be more desirable but the attention to detail is missing from modern FX and replaced with this weird sense of sterility I never really bought into.

It's most apparent of course in the Star Wars prequels - and I think it largely contributed to their lackluster reception by the general public. I'm going to make a general statement and blame The Matrix for this shift in aesthetics. Nothing against that movie but I think it inspired this kind of push towards boring visuals and simplified plot devices (like everything Kurt Wimmer had done thus far). Minority Report tends to stand out as one of the only mainstream movies of the 2000's that didn't adopt that sterile simplified look, although the color treatment definitely pays homage to it. There are other films from the last decade that would illustrate my point, but this tangent is a little long already. Suffice to say that dirty, gritty, apocalyptic look that I fell in love with during my formative years is slowing seeping back into the mainstream. Now that I sound like a hopeless nostalgic, here's the movie that inspired this rant.

Also took the liberty of re-watching the abysmal failure that is David Lynch's Dune. What can I say it still looks cool.

Bill Gibson Q&A

At long last, Gibson appears to have finished his follow up to Spook Country and returned (at least temporarily) to the blogging universe. This is cause for celebration...though maybe not so much for the author. In this brief Q&A my idol describes the process of writing novels as "painful."

Oh Yeah, I Was On Jimmy Fallon

Like um, In case you forgot.

Extended Absence

Writing a blog about what I'm doing is like reading a journal entry to an absent minded pet puppy. Maybe that's a terrible analogy but as I type this I legitimately wonder who is reading it. Especially after my escapades with John on broadcast TV.

I have a new follower who appears to be Japanese. It's not Mr. Sugitsuka - as he would likely comment in English - but shout out to said stranger in any case. And if you are the guy/gal that is responsible for this...thank you very much sir or ma'am.

In any case, since I have some kind of following, it stands to reason that I should keep updated bulletins on the blogosphere, at the very least to justify to myself my total lack of output. So here's my excuse. I'm spending all of my spare time learning Motion Graphics and Screenwriting. Hopefully it will eventually pay off, and at some point I'll reach a point where I'm consistently making new stuff to share. Until then, reviewing movies and bitching about Glenn Beck will have to take a back seat. Many sorries to my followers. All two of them.

Be sure to follow me on twitter, where I am considerably more active.

ADDENDUM: Apparently that is Takashi. Hi Takashi! I don't understand your kanjis!

Zophar's Domain

It's nice know some old relics are still around. Zophar's Domain...for all your emulation needs, made obsolete and inconvenient by PS Network, Virtual Console, and Xbox Live.

I'm going to play Xenogears on my PC now, BRB!

New Site BETA

I finally made some changes to the layout of my page. It's unfinished, but functional. (Death Star joke summarily deleted)

Bob Officer

Feedback would be appreciated. I'm still a stranger to CSS as the only formal training I've had was a decade ago - back when pizza was free and money was blue and knowing what HTML stood for made me sound smart.

The Book of the New Sun

I asked my roommate if she had any interesting science fiction to recommend having discussed the Dune series at length several weeks prior. She gave me this.

Now, I consider myself a more-than-casual-aficionado of the most undervalued genre, so I was shocked that I had never encountered this author before - especially after I finished the first volume.

I generally hesitate to make any kind of broad statements about someones work before I've had time to digest it in it's entirety - but the Book of the New Sun is the best science fiction I've read since LeGuin's Hainish Cycle (Left Hand of Darkness, and The Disposessed specifically). In fact it's shaping up to be more impressive in scope and allegory than anything Frank Herbert conceived in his career. Do yourself a favor and get a hold of this book.

2010: Death and Rebirth Part One

So it was nice to end the year with a legit youtube music video. It's something I'm proud of and I'm genuinely pleased to see people are responding positively to something I worked so hard to create. There is no comic again this week - but - my site is undergoing practical and creative alterations that may consume a considerable amount of time. In the meantime, I need to share this bit of information - because my video has been reposted in Japan.

This is particularly awesome for me because - with the North American release of Bayonetta I've reconnected with a part of my formative years that has been riding the proverbial bench for way too long. This of course coincides with my first viewing of Eva Rebuild 1.1 You Are (Not) Alone. Hearing the Eva-esque remix of Fly Me to the Moon stirred up an element in my consciousness, and I was shocked to realize how much I have drifted emotionally and intellectually away from the things that were so important to me in my youth.

In short, it's the nerd element. I've been so absorbed with New York City, and approaching a legit career as a filmmaker and being a responsible adult - and failing - and failing and - and using dashes because I wish I was Jack Kerouac - that I let myself get taken over by preconceptions of what I thought adulthood and responsibility and art were supposed to be. (forgive me - lost yer address, drunk)

(let the band catch up)
(because we're doing some word jams)

So now that I started this blog I don't know how to finish it. I am admittedly sleepy and drunky. I am sure I had some brilliant epiphany that was worth sharing, but, now - no idea. Or do I? the epiphany might be that I'm comfortable using the word "drunky" in a sentence. Or maybe it's something more fer cereal.

Snakes Rapping About James Maynard Keynes on PBS

I'm very confused.
