The Name Is Familiar, But I Just Can’t Draw The Face (Dork #11, 2006)
He’s just mad because he can’t acquire all the apple juice that I’m acquiring. (x)
“[T]he third section of the movie also contains an image that’s remarkably Kirby-like. When Dave enters the Discovery’s computer center to “kill” HAL, he’s shot from below, looking like one of Kirby’s iconic superhumans. As an artist, Kirby made sense for 2001, because he excelled at drawing futuristic technology and he thought in widescreen. Visually, the 2001 Marvel Treasury is a thing of beauty, with the oversized format (10 by 14 inches rather than than the more common 7.25 by 10.5) suiting Kirby’s preference for big panels and two-page splashes. Kirby borrows some compositions directly from the film, but he adds his own dynamic poses and granite faces. He gives a somewhat stately film a jolt of Kirby electricity.”
My friend gave me Kirby’s 2001 last year, and it’s the most amazing thing, ever.
"One day my log will have something to say about this. My log saw something that night."
We simply can’t get enough of the artwork by our friend Cuddly Rigor Mortis (previously featured here). Entitled Lady Log, this adorable role reversal of two Twin Peaks characters was created for In Dreams, a group art show tribute to the inimitably awesome David Lynch taking place at the Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco, CA. The show features work by over 50 artists from around the world and opens this Saturday March 8th and runs through March 29, 2014.
We know what the log says to the Log Lady, but now we have to wonder, what would the lady say to the log?
If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.
Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.
So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.
This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.
Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite
This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.
non-Jewish people going on today about “reclaiming” Anne Frank as a “bi icon” or w/e make me really uncomfortable, because it has this ring of “all this time I thought she was just some Jewish kid, but now it turns out she’s one of us!!!!” like if you didn’t find Anne Frank’s story moving until you realized she shared some marker with you then maybe you should reconsider your whole approach to this whole “empathy” thing.
