ON MY BRAIN: Thursday, February 24, 2005
It's your favorite "Message Board" dodging pal here! It's
crazy, pretty much every night I say tonight is the night I'm going
to get up there and spend a few hour chatting with you all, and then
suddenly it's two thirty in the morning and I still haven't finished
all my other work--and need to get to bed because I got meetings in
the morning! Really gang sorry about that, I WILL start getting back
up there soon and get current with you all--but I've got to tell you
many of the things I've been working on, Heavy Metal Entertainment wise,
for so long is coming together--and when I tell you what is up, you
won't mind how busy I've been.
So I've recently moved--I used to live in "Sunny California"
but as you know, if any of you have been watching the evening news,
I now live in some kind of rain forest! Christ no joke man, we've gotten
more rain in the last few weeks than we have in the last two years--it's
broken records going back like 90 years! Our street was closed for over
a week, big chunks of the hill slid on to the road--but we have been
lucky considering all the those folks who's "WHOLE HOMES"
that have slid off the hills on to other homes! Sad stuff really.
brings me to the first two images this week, a cool night shot Julie
took of the rain coming off the gutters, and me walking good old Scout
in a down pour. Scout wouldn't care if it was hailing, so she won't
let anything come between our morning sniff and poop excursion.
So I was looking around the photo files for some crazy images for the
rest of my "What's On" rambling this time out, and nothing struck
me. So I started looking around the studio and I have a few of these pin-up
boards I used to use in the upstairs office, and wondered why I stuck
some of the stuff I did on them. So I just went over and pulled off some
random stuff, so lets see what I found.
"G Dubya!" This is actually something new I put up, my friend
Joe sent it to me--he's not much of a Bush fan as you can probably guess. |
Don't know what I was thinking about here--some kinda goofy "Super
Guy" doodle, spouting some Stan Lee or Bob Burden line "I will
punch you fairly often!" I have to use that line in a comic or a
tee shirt one of these days. |
love coasters. Rarely use them, end up buying lotsa cool ones, and they
end up in the bottom of junk drawer in the studio. This one is from Restless
Records, they were using them at one of the record release parties for
the "Heavy Metal 2000" soundtrack. Actually a very cool soundtrack
by the way. |
The lovely Arban Ornalis! One of Julie's models that lived here at the
house with us for a while when she first moved to LA. Great kid, a real
talent--Julie helped her break into the movies, she did a bunch of Troma
films--and was painted a bunch of times by Simon Bisley. She now lives
in London, has a lovely baby, and working on her singing. Good luck
yet another appearance of Simon and I from one of his comics. This is
the pencil rough he faxed me--I think it was from one of the LoBo books,
I can't remember which one. He also just had us appear in a strip club
scene in "War Blade issue#2" See if you can spot us.
was cool, somebody sent me this last year--you might have seen it on line
somewhere. Basically this guy got or made a bunch of "missile shaped"
balloons, ties them to the back of his truck a races down the freeway
making people think he's trying to outrun them. I've got to try this! |
Bode! One of the original gods of underground comics! He was a huge
inspiration to me when I was younger--I first discovered him in the
pages of Heavy Metal magazine in the late seventies and spent allot
of time after that tracking down his early comics. This is a great one
panel original joke I've had for years.
Good for one Drink" man I've tried to use this everywhere, and no
body will take it! Seriously, I got this at some event, and probably had
a lot more of these I did get to use, which is why I can't remember where
I got this one. |
always carry my first million with me for good luck" I once told
Simon, and pulled this out of my wallet at some bar. It was around the
time I first met him over in England (and when I had a million) and he
thought it was real! English money looks a lot different than ours, and
if you're not familiar with U.S. currency you might go for it. He started
showing all his mates, and I was like "Christ--are you nuts? One
of these guys will roll me and steal it!" I told him years later
it wasn't real.|
Okay gang, I'm running out of room again, and I haven't even gotten
to plug all the new cool stuff KR's been adding to the site for sale,
I know there are a bunch of new original
art pieces going up this week--but I'll leave a little room at the
bottom of the post in case he wants to mention anything else.
that I'll leave you with this one final image, something I heard on
a TV show I think--I wrote it down on a post it, and have had it for
years, and pretty much agree with the thought behind it. Hope you do
to. Talk to you soon!
We've also added a bunch of NBM titles to SHOP TV. Check
