A Very Special X-Mas Treat

Guest blogger D-bra comes all the way from the western shores of this great land, to bring you a tale of the Krampus:

Let me tell all you assholes a little somethin' somethin' bout Christmas that you might not have known.  This has nothing to do with the screaming infant Jesus, or Rudolph, or even that morbidly obese pedophile Santa Claus.  It is about the true hero of Christmas, the Krampus!  Krampus is all evil looking and goat-like and shit.  He's tall and gangly and has food all up in his beard.  His breath is horrendous and he has a very threatening member that he hardly bothers to conceal.  He rides shot-gun with Santa Claus in the sleigh at the beginning of December and sniffs out the bad kids - you know, the ones who eat boogers and beat up gay kids.  When he finds a filthy little brat, he puts the kid in his stinky sack and takes the kid back to his lair to sodomize the bad out.  The only way the Krampus can be dissuaded is by getting drunk, so make sure you have some Schnapps on hand if you are an asshole.  When they say that bad kids get coal in their stockings on Christmas, that is just a euphemism for the coal black cock of the Krampus rammed up a kid's stocking-like brown hole!

X-mas in Eternia

Another favorite x-mas tv special from my youth is the He-man & She-ra christmas special. It is definitely in the upper tier of quality, holiday, family programming. It's a tradition of mine to watch this magnificent classic while intoxicated, every year. And during each viewing I remember why it appealed to me so much as a child......................................................................................................................... it's so gay.

Recordz

I've been considering ways to share a music playlist on here, but for some reason I can't seem to figure out the blog widgets. That won't stop me because I bought myself a record player for my birthday, along with a bunch of records. Then I took a bunch of pictures of my records with my hip-sta-matic, because that's what you do with those things

So, it's come to this

The last thing I wanted was for this blog to turn into a seasonal collection of holiday crap. But here I am thinking about some of my favorite television Christmas specials. One fantastic example comes from my childhood hero, Pee Wee Herman...
So many guest stars. Also I specifically remember a work crew of chip n dales building a room entirely out of fruitcake for Pee Wee.

The Lost Art of Music Video's

Music video's existed before Mtv and continue to, after or in spite of it. The internet has helped keep the art of short film making set to music alive. Here are some of my favorites from some of my favorite artists.
Invisible Light by the Scissor Sisters. Made to look like a arthouse flick from the 70's, this video from 2010 is like a Polanski acid trip. 

Another video from 2010, Interpol's "Lights" features stark contrasts with surrealist imagery and ritualistic ceremony in a dark fable. 


The first single off of their 2010 album "Plastic Beach", the Gorillaz never cease to delight under the direction of artistic demigod Jamie Hewlett

Octo-mania!!!

I have a deep affection for cephlapods. And I also love watching tourists act like assholes as a tour guide gently tries to avoid an incident.

Con Job

It's no secret that I'm a big ol' nerd. I've been to my share of comic cons, and I am always super jazzed to snap pics of all the cosplayers. I got to hand it to these guys (and gals) there is some real artistry to this madness. I also enjoy the really shitty costumes that look like they were made with scotch tape and a prayer.
Here are a select few of my favorites from years past
Me & Emma Frost

Spaceballz

Kid Captain America

The Monarch's Henchman

Phoenix and She-Hulk

Lego Bobba Fett

Powdered Toast Man

American Maid

Thor

The General Lee

Academia or Bust!

As I eagerly anticipate my trip to MICA this weekend, for their Graduate program's open house, I am trying to avoid self analysis and criticism. I am also waiting to here back from the portfolio preview, so while I should be working on my official portfolio I decided to blog instead. PORTFOLIOFORTHEWIN!

Contemporaries

I have been a big fan of my fellow Tyler Alumnus Lisa Yuskavage for a long time. A contemporary American painter, her work focuses on distortion of the female form. She utilizes a delicious palette of candy and pastry colors.




 John Currin is another artist I love. His work also distorts figures and has a similar mid-late 20th century cartoonish quality.
