WET AND WHINING

I've actually done a few more panels of Kaiju. I just need to review the scans. Between the rain and a 12-hour day at the office on Friday and then Mother's Day, I didn't get as much as I've wanted to get done this week. Ah, so it begins.

While I was at the office, I did ballpoint a couple of quick minis. I did a couple more last night when it was so humid the ink from my brush melted the paper.

SO, I might have a bunch of real-quick minis for MoCCA, maybe bundle them like #5 and call them #7. I'm thinking a blue envelope. Probably four or five of them, depending on how long the weather stays this way. None in color, and probably none too involved, just fast funnies — the kind people actually like. Then KJ becomes #8.

Midtown Comics has become the latest retailer to carry Cliff Face Comics! We'll be shipping the books out once Marcos returns from the south, so they should be available by the end of the week. I'll add links to sidebars in a moment.

Finished Life As We Know It, all thirteen episodes. I feel ridiculously cheated. They wrapped up the major story arcs, but it would have been such a perfect show to continue. Great acting, great writing, great directing, my future ex-wife: Jessica Lucas and my new man love: born in Morristown, NJ — of all places — only 6 years my senior and the best actor I've seen in quite some time, Peter Dinklage. Of course, I'm the last person in the world to discover him, and was chastised with the chastizing stick of incredulousity for my not seeing The Station Agent. Still, I claim him as my own.

I haven't enjoyed an actor's performance that much in a long time.

Saw Hostel. It was okay. It's more of an action movie than a horror movie. Like a gruesome action movie, but it follows that story-telling style more than the one for horror. And that's only for the second half of the movie. The first half is a road trip, teens-getting-laid movie. It did have a cameo from Miike! Still waiting for Eli Roth to make that movie he seems on the verge of making any day now.

Also saw Bin-jip (3-Iron) from Korean director Ki-duk Kim, who did the wonderful Seom (The Isle). A beautiful movie. Really, the sort of thing that movies forget to be in this day and age: just a single statement explored in a complex way. It's all about love and finding a way to live outside the normal parameters of society — or beyond its reach. A theme that existed in The Isle, but that gets explored and expounded here. There's very, very little dialog (think 2001), but a ton of communication. Also, it made golf interesting (as an instrument of violence).

I can only go home again one more time, as the folks are leaving for Florida in the middle of June. The big going-away party is the Saturday of MoCCA (the only day everyone who counted could go, my value dropping from near-mint to fair with torn corners faster than lead in a vacuum). I made my plans a year ago, they made theirs a month ago, so screw'em. I'll see them Memorial Day, probably.
