One of my favourite things from Disneyland: one of the employees has clearly been having fun with the labels in the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame part of the Aerosmith roller coaster.
"Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two" #2, by me, Ulises Farinas and Ryan Hill, out today.

I got a holiday card from Douglas a couple years back and this is one of the reasons I will treasure it forever.

I grew up in the era of sampling, where you wear your influences on your sleeve. The easy thing to go to is Tarantino, but for me it’s like the Beastie Boys, the first time I really remember hearing that guitar riff [mouths “She’s Crafty”], to me that’s always “She’s Crafty,” not “The Ocean.” I didn’t hear “The Ocean” until I was like 13 or 14, and I was like, “oh my god, it’s that Beastie Boys riff.” That came out of a post-hip hop world, where you wear your influences on your sleeve. Whether it’s Hitchcock and Welles going back and forth with Psycho and Touch of Evil, or Martin Scorsese doing Psycho in Raging Bull, George Lucas naming characters Klaatu, Barada and Nikto…
I thought this is what you do: you wear your influences on your sleeve, and you kind of find your own voice outside of that stuff. — Matt Fraction is That Dude for all kinds of reasons, and this interview reveals a few of them.

Just reaffirming that I am aware of this thing’s existence and may continue to use it for stuff, time permitting. I do this all the time with blogs but at least I’m still fairly active on Twitter and in my freelance work. So, some notes:
-The 500 Favorites series is on permanent hiatus for a couple reasons, including but not limited to the sinking sensation I feel every time someone reblogs a post I made and strips out all the words just to post the audio clip of the song.
-I am working on a comic (?!) and will start posting previews and miscellany about it starting sometime next month. In all likelihood it will be at my visual arts/comix/illustration-enthusiasms site Panel Slang. (I also have a separate Twitter account for this side of my work, which is a bit sparse in both the content and follower aspects of the whole deal but it’s there, so hey.)
-The rule of three demands I have something in this third bullet point so here is a song by Broadcast I hadn’t heard until recently that I am glad to have heard. I catch feelings off The Noise Made by People for a number of reasons and fortunately for me this Extended Play Two deep cut is right along those lines.
For mere pennies!
I want a full-sized 8x11 print and/or t-shirt featuring that portrait of Tiny Halftone Sabbath.
