The American Chemical Society sends you a mug every year when you pay your dues. Each year the element featured on the mug advances along the periodic table by 1 atomic number. This year I got carbon, or element 6, which has a nice drawing of graphite on it. I joined ACS when I was 34, meaning to get an osmium mug I will have to live to be 110, so literally what is the point can you tell me.
Drawing Superheroes (Part 2 of 3).
John Buscema draws Captain America and Bill Sienkiewicz draws Elektra.
The lack of narration and just the sounds of drawing is awesome :)
So different, but both mesmerizing. Elektra was my favorite comic as a youngster.
Google autocomplete is better at evoking empathy for our fellow human beings than any writing or artistic endeavor I’ve seen lately
If I start to type something I think What happens when your students read this and What happens when potential employers read this. I’ve scrupulously cleaned my name off this thing but it still shows up when you google my name. Why is that? Seriously why is that? ::Stares out into the dark auditorium::
Hey remember blogging? Ha, me neither. Okay everyone here come all my deepest secrets, in order.
- Presto marked the beginning of the end of Rush’s keyboard sound, beginning the third act of their career, which continues to this day. I might have skipped school the day Roll the Bones came out, but Presto holds a dearer place in my heart. That’s because it was $1.99 in the bargain bin, with that saw mark across the bar code. I thought It’s not 2112 but it’s cheap so I might as well buy it. I think Presto has this weird metallic sound, but I like it. It’s uncomfortable, which isn’t always a bad thing. If you mark off the years of your life that have been uncomfortable, how many are there? All of them?
