Docs

Been binging on a bunch of documentaries including ones on Bukowski, Salinger, Steadman, Ricky Jay, Detroitopia and others all good, but one of my favorites was the one on Tomi Ungerere, TO FAR ISN"T FAR ENOUGH.

3 GhostCats

a GhostDog and elastic  pants.
Taking care of my sister cats making sure these little tubbies don't waste away while they are in Switzerland which is close by so I'm catching up on some Netflix that I don't have. THE PUNK SINGER which was great. I'm a fan of her bands and have seen them so I knew I'd like it and I saw INSIDIOUS which was really tough to sit through it was so lousy. MUSCLE SHOALS which was great tho I can't say I'm fan of the stuff that was recorded there later in the seventies and any time I have to listen to Bono its torture.

Landscape

Going to have a nice seafood dinner tonight courtesy of my brother in law as I'm taking care of their cats for the next three weeks. Picked up these visiionary landscapes this afternoon after the gym.
I'm tempted to paint in some spooks and put some sixties horror paperback lettering on them. Probably my fav Vega solo record, its pretty amazing, I'm a big fan of the band Suicide.






Over at AEET Karswell posted an amazing Man Bat story by Frank Robbins. I love Robbins work. As a kid I remember seeing his stuff and going " meh 'when I didn't know better, now he's one of the guys who did superhero comics in the seventies  that I pick up if I run across the issues. I"m also consumed by rage  ( not really but it does bum me out) when I think of being outbid on a unpublished Vampire story by him several years ago. I would like to own a original of his one day.  My favorite period for Batman is 40's to 60's but I just love these pages, the art just vibrates.






Morning

I'd prefer to have the new bluray but running across the complete series dvd's for 75 bucks less then them is good enough for now. Too bad they never released the theme song as a single.  This show was fantastic and its great watching them again in the morning and Dixie was cute.

sketchbook



Class of 1984

I was tempted to do better photos of this but that would take to long so these are just bike phone shots with phone pics from the new bluray ( which looks way better then here) hadn't seen it in awhile and it was shot where I live and I love punk stuff so..I also took a pic of a close up not here thinking it was the arts club I painted in a few years ago but in fact it was the building next door.
