A Few Random Thoughts
|Ah, right, so I’m back in Illinois now. I’ve got a few things to say about Tennessee, but that will have to wait a bit. For now, I’ve let my email pile up a bit in my absence, so in the spirit of cleaning, here are a few random kibbles and bits:|
• The new issue of Lark News is up. Go laugh at Christians.
• Surely you know of The Brick Testament by now. Hell, it’s on Rolling Stone's Hot List this year. Said site is a retelling of Bible stories using Lego blocks. It’s great fun. It’s also a bit racy, given that it tells the stories the way they’re written. All the sexy, violent, genocidal bits, of which there are many, are right there. There are quite a few updates on the site, mostly Sampson related.
• The Onion’s AV Club has an interview with Neil Gaiman, whose latest stuff includes the novel Anansi Boys (a semi-follow-up to 2000’s American Gods), and the fantasy film Mirrormask (Gaiman scripted; Dave McKean directed). Ah, and watch the Mirrormask trailer while you’re at it.
• Cartoonist Chris Ware (Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth, The Acme Novelty Library) will be at Quimby’s in Chicago on October 15. Optic Nerve’s Adrian Tomine will in there in November. Yah!!!
I think that's all for now.
