rundrummer — February 03, 2006 — Gene Krupa takes over the drums for a band and goes on a ride
http://www.stumptowncomics.com/ The stumptown comics festival was this weekend. I didn't go, and as usual I am left with emotions of longing and loss. I need to get out of my rut and be someplace some of the time.
In the meantime these wonderful projects are ongoing:
the uniform project
Also there are these wonderful things keeping me connected to the artist paradise I seek:
How to be a Retronaut
Lines and Colors is one of my favorite blogs of all time! Where else would I learn about:
wei te - the cowherd's magical flute
tropical toxic - tomer and asaf hanuka
Giant Ant Colony is a World Wonder - Watch more Funny Videos
Dog Goes Nuts During Soldier Homecoming - Watch more Funny Videos
I discovered Archer this weekend and summarily decided it is excellent by virtue of its hilarious cast.
I also caught up with the latest chapter of meredith gran - octopus pie and realized how wonderful this little web comic actually is.
I am now seriously (yeah right) considering developing a
kickstarter project. What I really need is a kick in the pants, however.
A Princess of Mars has been on my playlist for the last 2 weeks. I am only 2/3 of the way through since I blank out every other chapter and need to skip backward. I'm not sure where I got these Marc Nelson narrated files, but they are par excellence. Is this the same Marc Nelson of Arthur fame? Oh wait, I see that its Marc Brown who did that.
I found myself recently reading about euhemerus after finding out about his take on the Greek myths (especially the sirens). I knew there had to be a word for modern demythologizing; well one that sounds literary anyway.
I found Smilla's Sense of Snow by chance and now I am captivated. I'm going to finish watching it tonight.
