Every now and then there comes a movie that actually sneaks up on you when you're not expecting it to and it shakes the living shit out of you just to get your attention and let you know that not everyone in the world is happy with viewing the same shitty Hobbit-infested, twinky werewolf plagued, sparkling fucking vampire, and blue, alien Thundercat animal fuckers that are worshiped by people that just won't let Star Wars die the dignified death that it deserves. I think this may be one of them.
Yeah, it's directed by the guy who did Phantasm and (my personal favorite) Bubba Ho Tep. Can't wait for this one.
Yesterday was this blog's one year anniversary. So for those of you that have been following it for that long, I take no responsibility for any brain damage or dementia you may have contracted during that time frame.
I was trying to decide what to post here as an anniversary post, but I really couldn't come up with anything good. Instead, I decided to post the video I made in response to Lucas' tinkering (yet again) with the Star Wars movies that he released on Blu-Ray. Here it is:
Yes, this is what happens when you have WAAAAAY too much time on your hands, access to video accessories, the knowledge of video editing, and no job.
It's been a while since I've posted anything here. Mainly due to the fact that I'm fairly sure no one really cares what I'm putting up here. When no one really cares, it feels masturbatory more than anything else, and even masturbation gets to be boring if you do it often enough.
Anyway, I did a little piece recently for the Conan O'Brien show. In November they're going to NYC for a week and doing the show there. They wanted artwork from people that was NYC related, so the first thing that came to mind was the Empire State Building. Then superheroes. Since Conan has a superhero alter ego, I decided why the hell not do something with that. Here's the end result.
I had to piece the scan together, that's why there are blotchy square spots. I drew this out on watercolor paper, inked it, and then used watercolors, gray tone markers and even some white pencil to pull it all together. I also designed a costume for Andy since I figured he'd be the Flaming C's sidekick. Anyway, there it is. It's been submitted.
