Faux Sin City Posters



I have now seen the Comicon exclusive footage for Sin City more than 300 times. This movie is going to make filmmakers who are not Robert Rodriguez cry and give up film-making. It will win the prestigious and unprecedented Merv at the Movies "Best Everything 2005" award. And it will inspire me to manipulate photos of my friends over Frank Miller artwork.

Patrick on vacation (Also me on vacation).



My roommate Patrick went on vacation and as soon as he left I had a nic fit. Nah, that didn't really happen. Actually you know what I think that picture of me is when I was on vacation somewhere else.

The new Chemical Brothers album is so good, I made a Transformers joke.

Violence towards cartoon animals can be good.


Obviously this plan would never work, as cartoon cats, like all other toons, are vulnerable only to Dip, and not to knives.

2005: Best January 5th Ever?

I had a great personal time tonight, but then I got home. BUT, THEN, I, GOT, HOME.

Frank Miller has been confirmed as the writer of All-Star Batman and Robin, with Jim Lee on art. If it turns out to be as tenth as good as Born Again, well, it will also be a tenth as good as Man Without Fear, or, roughly, eight thousand times better than any other non-philosophical work out there. I'm not saying that Miller uses no subtext, I'm just saying his stories DO NOT FUCKING NEED IT.

I miss Will Eisner, too. I heard about that yesterday, though, so technically, still best January 5th ever. I also own no real sadness when thinking of his passing, if only because I don't believe he wasted any time here. Off the top of my head, I'd say he led the most consistently full and rewarding life of the twentieth century.

I've also come a bit closer to my special "Unified Theory of All That." To wit!: Monotheism is the worship of the abyss, or that which is (or seems) unknowable. Other Theisms are various forms of self and material worship in differing part combinations, and which often are metaphorically explained by chess boards on higher and lower plains of existence. These are evidenced, respectively, by a Christian God who is in charge, and by non-Christian gods who represent different abilities, emotions, and specializations. In people, then, you can see the innate draw to Christianity: you don't have to be in charge, and you don't have to win, because there's someone who already does that, and you can never learn enough to get his job. And there are advantages to that: people like that aren't jerks and will probably let you do what you're going to do. Ironically, the way it usually works out is for abyss-worshippers to skip learning about something (playing-chess-style) and instead try to solve problems of faith with willful ignorance and unsupported accusation. That's pretty much it so far. Let me know if any that was unclear, and I'll work on it.

And there's only 85 more days until Sin City.

It is the year 2005.

Did you guys hear what was happening from secret staging grounds on two of Cybertron's moons?
