By now you have probably heard that Mike Jeffries, CEO of Abercrombie and Fitch, suppliers of man-whore wear to the masses, said some nasty things seven years ago and now people are really mad because he said nasty things about fat people and ‘aspirational branding’ and other bullshittery. People got very angry and protested in the streets. The squawks of outrage created by this ‘terrible event’ where a rich cocksucker said he didn’t want to sell clothing to fat or ‘uncool’ people has eclipsed the story of a Bangladesh factory collapse that killed more than 1,000 people who were making clothing for the US market (and may have even been making clothes for Abercrombie & Fitch). Factories collapse and workers die? The consumer shrugs and heads to the mall. A CEO says he doesn’t want to sell clothes to unpopular kids? We get mad, grab our placards and hit the streets. Are our priorities just a bit fucked or what?
Look at this picture where I compare Jeffries, Cocksucker in Chief of A&F, and a lizard man:
Is that motherfucker terrifying or what? His face just looks like a mask pulled over his lizardy skull – the weirdly fake prominent cheek bones and the flaccid lizard lips… under that obvious wig is probably a zipper that starts at the top of his skull and goes down his spine, allowing the lizard-king to show his true form… those fake teeth probably pop out like dentures, allowing him to chew his human babies with razor-sharp fangs. The lizard-humanoid hybrids are exactly what David Icke has been trying to warn us about! Jeffries is clearly one of the hybrids in disguise… Wanting to ‘create an aspirational brand’ by saying he will not sell clothes to the unpopular kids at your high school is the least of his crimes… child sacrifice, cannibalism, plotting the overthrow of humanity – that’s the shit we are talking about. This dude is more evil than Ming the Merciless
Ray Harryhausen, animator and special-effects artist, died the other day at the ripe old age of 92. I’m sad to see him go, but 92 is a pretty good run, so maybe he was ready to go. “Jason & The Argonauts” was the best damn thing I ever saw in the movies (skeleton fight!) and I’d rather watch it or King Kong than Star Wars or Avatar.
I don’t have anything profound to say about Harryhausen. This New Yorker article by Adam Gopnik is much better than anything I could write, anyway.
A few years ago I got this book on The Art of Ray Harryhausen by Tony Dalton – lots of great illustrations… and you get to see Harryhausen’s drawings where he figured out how the different critters should look. Reccomended.
I just got copies of my Goodman Games artist portfolio booklet which is coming out soon – you can get one for free if you pre-order the new DCC Rulebook with Jeff Easley’s art on the cover! It’s pretty cool — I’ve never had anything like this before. It’s 16 pages, quality printed Black & White — mostly drawings with just three pages of my pointless ramblings about my influences and whatnot… so if reading about me going on about my influences sounds painful, realize that there is only 3 pages of it… and even those pages are partially pictures.
I think it’s dropping in June… so save your $$$!
Here is the cover:
Plus inside; read all about me:
James Tilly Matthews was committed to London’s Bedlam Asylum in 1797. He complained of an international conspiracy of persons using ‘influencing machines’ to produce illness and control the actions of others and called some of these devices ‘Air Looms.’ His case is considered the first possible documented case of paranoid schizophrenia. Matthews was apparently at turns perfectly lucid, intelligent and charismatic, but, later in life, he behaved in bizarre ways, uttered strange things and would behave erratically. Matthews claimed that during these periods, he was under control of an ‘air loom,’ a machine operated by criminals which used various gasses and other substances to control him. Mathews claimed that there was a wider ‘air loom’ conspiracy and members of Parliament were controlled by the gang.
