Dream Recollection 4: April 20th, 2008

I'm in some convenience store, looking for an arcade game to play. The layout of the store is a mix of both Korner Stop and the Shell Select (before the shitty renovations). The Winnipeggers among us know these places. Anyway...I settle upon a wrestling game – of course – with a small screen and convoluted play. It has a stool, strangely enough, so I sit at it. Who am I to refuse a stool? There's a bunch of Asian women in the store, all of them fine. I noticed them earlier, but I was intent on playing something. Upon settling into the game, one of the women, begins rather passionately chewing on my left ear, whispering intentions. I'm still playing the game.

Yeah, I can't figure it out either.

It may have been influenced by the trailer for Joey Silvera's Asian Oral, which kinda sucks (pardon the pun) if that's true. Being of a "visible minority", anything that fetishizes ethnicity kinda gets me pissed.
If I get it together, I'm gonna be putting Evil Angel on blast for a related matter. Yup. Stay tuned.

Unless you keep your ear to the ground for illustration happenings, you may not have heard about a fly-by-night Hong Kong publisher putting out a book full of stolen art. All of the work and interviews came from members of The Little Chimp Society site. Just fuckin' ridiculous.
Read all about it at Luc Latulippe's blog.

Rik Cordero is a Genius.

I haven't felt the need to listen to The Roots' "Birthday Girl" in full...until this video.
Sasha Grey's smoky glare makes me feel all funny inside. I'll leave you to do a Google search for her uh, activities.
Here, I'll get you started: her Shot by Kern interviews are compelling. That link is NSFW, by the way.

Straight from the horse's mouth.
I'm kinda on the fence about this. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about Flickr advancing n' stuff, but my first thought was about the creepy swingers with no photos/stolen porn photos/"dick pics" that try to add me as a contact because they "luv BBW's too" (sic). This is just another avenue for them to prove how hot they aren't.

Of course, I don't have to watch. I'm a big boy.

On the bright side, the contacts I don't mind seeing naked might get a little more...creative.

I've got stuff to draw. Good night.

R.I.P. Bruce Gillespie

I just found out that Bruce passed away on the 30th of March.
In the realm of my somewhat extended RRC career, I had Bruce as an instructor just a couple of times, and we always got along pretty well, especially when it came to music. I remember he corrected me when I identified the singer of "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence" as Johnny Horton (it was Gene Pitney), but was impressed that I knew who Johnny Horton was.
Bruce was also one of the first people to encourage me to come back to the program after I failed the first time, and got me to read all I could about the business, which is part of why I'm such an addict for graphic design/illustration info.
Rest in peace, sir.
