A while ago, I did some shameless self-promotion on this site for my other site, The Subterranean Homesick Noos. (What good is the internet if you don’t have more than two sites!) Well, I’m happy to take that path again and announce that Side B of my story about my trek across this massive land is now live.
Pick up the story as I board The California Zephyr Word of warning: reading it will require a commitment of time.
I had tried to complete the accompanying video that goes along with it to include in the post, but as with all things video, it’s taking longer than I thought. When it’s done, it will be done. And if it’s crap, you’ll never see it anyway and hey, ho, let’s not ever mention it again.
I saw this on my way out of the M R Lawrence St. station yesterday. It intrigued me very much, the way it was scrawled onto a piece of wooden board blocking a doorway in the subway. The 100 drawings. The fact that they were moved by. The “she is so much”. How can one resist googling something like that? Fantastic marketing.
Problem is, I’m not really sure that I found the right one. Nevertheless, check out the blog of Theresa Andrea and some of the artworks contained within. If it’s not the right artist that said sign singles out, no matter. Still nice to stumble on an artist in the ether.
The Rain of Madness blog (documenting the making of the movie about the making of a movie?) is slowly adding additional posts from the director while also building my anticipation for the Tropic Thunder movie. Saw the trailer last night at Batman (holy buckets, Batman. The joker is awesome!) and think that it might be worth viewing purely for the dose of Robert Downey Jr.
Anyway, here’s the a sample of some of the behind the scenes goodness you can view at the blog. Hopefully, more to come.
That’s the basic premise of Rob Sacchetto’s Zombie Daily. Drop by every dark day to see a maggoty mess rise form the dead and occupy a blog. Of course, as with anything to do with Zombies, it doesn’t end there. If you have any desire to see how you will look when you succumb to the fleshy nibble of the undead, you can purchase a zombie portrait of your bad dead self. Lovely.
“But that’s a whole ‘nother year.” Ah, stop your whining, Luke. Any Star Wars fan will tell you that’s soooo not Tatooine. Jackpot, nerds! It’s Mars, baby!
I’ve been meaning to post The Big Picture for a while, and today I’ve finally got my ducks in a row boat and they’re all quacking “stroke” together. It’s an awesome blog that shows you the news through the lens of a camera (without all the extraneous reportage). They pick a story and select the images that prove the old “worth a 1,000 words” thing. The photo above is from Martian Skies. Other features to catch my eye lately – Mississippi Floodwaters in Iowa (the photo below is from that collection), Sidoarjo’s Man-made Mud Volcano, and World Environment Day.
Incidentally, Harvest is When I Need You the Most is the name of a book I saw on Drawn recently. Nine cartoonists take to their drawing boards to pay homage to the original Star Wars trilogy. See who the “harvest 9″ are at the site, and if you’re digging on the Star Wars fan cartoonery, you can order the book from there.

Love the simplicity of these poems, compiled in wonderfully censored way. Newspaper Blackout Poems are the works of Austin Kleon, a writer who draws. And it’s just one category on his blog, which I enjoyed digging into this Saturday morning.
It’s so strange to see that once you take the snark of that cat out of the picture, Jon is just a really depressed, downward spiral kinda guy. Scroll through the blog Garfield minus Garfield and you’ll see what I mean.
