Don't Do Art!

This is a very clever parody of an anti-drug campaign for the College for Creative Studies in Detroit by Team Detroit… Although the last is kind of nonsensical to the theme, it definitely sums up the awful feelings my wife (also an artist) and I share (despite our repulsion at such sentiments) for our own children- Thankfully they’re coming through with the talent!

DTV: Parks & Recreation

DTV: Parks & Recreation

Originally intended as a spin-off of the U.S. The Office, Parks and Recreation follows the cringeworthy inter-office tensions of the fictional Department of Parks and Recreation, Pawnee, Indiana. The mockumentary style comedy centers around a cast of dysfunctional but hopelessly interdependent characters, rallying (if reluctantly) around their overly enthusiastic if slightly clueless boss: Leslie Knope (though a much more sympathetic even lovable character).
The first season is VERY ‘Officeish’, almost swapping out the archetypes form the afore mentioned foundation series, but as it progresses through its current 4 seasons takes on an identity of its own.
If you like the Office you’ll love this…

The Best Comic Movies... Almost.

Hi comic fans... whew... I was really angry when I started writing this and using the word FUCK a lot... But as I started writing I realised that this is actually a pretty good list... A sound mathematicaly fair process to rank films based on comics on Dark Horizons

Leading up to Surrogates, it's pretty much the predictable faecal insult to comicdom I would expect (though I didn't mind the last two Punisher movies) and after that, it's pretty close to what I would say is an acceptable if slightly spotty chart... But this is MY BLOG as as I'm the only one reading it so I'm gonna share my 2 cents(with myself)... And  I do have a few issues...

  • I DON'T understand how Xmen Last Stand made it above Catwoman (truly one the worst comic adaptations ever).
  • I think either Hulk's beating 300 is a little odd...
  • Superman Returns? I don't know anyone but ME that liked that film (and I didn't like it much).
  • Watchmen should be at the top as far as I'm concerned but I DO understand why it may not have been received as well as other films*
  • American Splendor, Ghost World? All good but numbers 3 and 4- pffft!
  • And don't get me started about all you raving fan-boys and the goddamn The Dark Knight, it was good and Heath was amazing and YES, I know my wife and I are the only people who agree BUT but it was poorly edited (even non sensibly in parts) Batman was bland and Two Face's 'turn' was out of the blue. It WAS NOT the film you all thought it was... 
*because you're an idiot

But, it is an interesting list... enjoy!


100 Ways To Die In Skyrim

A little long (15mins), maybe a few spoilers, but often amusing…

DTV: Survivors

It breaks my heart that this BBC series was cancelled after two seasons but this is a gripping remake of the 1970’s series of the same name. With high production values and a great authentic cast, this series follows a hapless group of disparate ‘everyday people’ who survive a virus that wipes out 90% of the population. Like a Zombie tale without zombies, our heroes must deal with many issues that we take for granted and the idea of having to rewrite the rule book on morality and society.

Turn it on.

How To Last in a Tough Business Filled with Rejection.

A thoughtful article on How To Last in a Tough Business Filled with Rejection.
“A man of knowledge knows that his life will be over altogether too soon. He knows that he, as well as everybody else, is not going anywhere; he knows that nothing is more important than anything else. … Under these circumstances his only tie to his fellow men is his controlled folly. Thus a man of knowledge endeavors and sweats and puffs and, if one looks at him, he is just like any ordinary man, except that the folly of his life is under control. Nothing being more important than anything else, a man of knowledge chooses any act and acts it out as if it matters to him. His controlled folly makes him say that what he does matters and makes him act as if it did, and yet he knows that it doesn’t. So when he fulfills his acts, he retreats in peace and whether his acts were good or bad, or worked or didn’t, it is in no way part of his concern.”
