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.

Man Stroke Woman

Do yourself a favor and rent Man Stroke Woman on netflix. I rarely laugh this hard at anything. And seriously, I can't even believe the sketch below exists.

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.
