“Chess and Laundry,” written and directed by George Abi-Hanna, is David Lynch directs the Seventh Seal meets a Kung Fu movie based on a script by a jazz composer with sound editing done in Tom Waits’ tool shed. In other words, a surrealist, existential, political sight and sound roundup centered around a man and a woman fighting it out over a chess board.

Philip Marlowe drank Old Forester. Sam Spade drank a premixed Manhattan from a paper cup. Lew Archer drank, well, pretty much anything. But Frank Marr prefers uppers over downers. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t hit the sauce, uppers are just a preference, a powdery, snortable preference. And if all of those fictional Private Eyes but Frank Marr ring a bell, well, you should treat yourself to David Swinson‘s series. How good is the Frank Marr series? Well, let’s just say […]

In the age of superhero movies and nostalgic revamps/remakes/revisits, maybe Ash Vs. Evil Dead wasn’t the hero show audiences deserved but definitely the hero show we needed—to save us from the same old shit. Ash Williams isn’t military trained nor an eccentric multi-billionaire but rather a one-handed ValueStop stockboy from Elk Grove, Michigan who unwittingly unleashes the Kandarian Demon while stoned in his trailer. He is more like your father, if your father was the kind of guy that would spend […]

Vintage K. Doonesbury: The Big Apple – Portland’s unofficial slogan might be “Keep Portland Weird,” but for New York it is just a mutual understanding among the locals. When you have a population of over 8,000,000 people, Weird is naturally going to be a demographic the politicians will have to cater to along with the Rich and the Poor and 1,000 shades in between.

“How about kids instead of looking to someone else to solve their problem, do something about maybe taking CPR classes or trying to deal with situations that when there is a violent shooter that you can actually respond to that,” Rick Santorum said on CNN’s State of the Union. Let me translate this mile-high bullshit for you: “Kids, listen, you don’t know what it’s like getting that sweet, sweet NRA money. If you knew, then you’d also be willing to […]
I find this photo of Billy Graham’s funeral kind of weird. This is how it plays out in my mind: Employee: “Welcome to the Billy Graham Funeral Experience. Did you folks have the Premium Experience? Great, that comes with a souvenir group photo. Everyone say ‘CHEEEEEEESSSSEEEEE-US!‘ Fantastic folks, this will be ready in 20 minutes.” Trump: “Hey, can we get the corner of Billy’s coffin in the shot? I’d feel bad if we didn’t get him in it. It is […]
Olaf Scholz and Dietmar Nietan were late to the stage, delaying the announcement of the #Groko vote results, so they had Willy Brandt tell some statue jokes to hold the crowd over.
A man I admired greatly has passed on. Barry Crimmins was an American saint for all that he did. They say you should never meet your heroes but I did. And I’m thankful for it.

I’ve been toying around with animating and making “moving art.” This is a draft of something I put together late last night. It took me nearly 4 hours to get the trees, mountains, and clouds all made. As you can see from the video, the clouds and trees still don’t want to react right. I was thinking of making this a music video, hence Tom Waits just appearing.
Kevin Spacey is out, Christopher Plummer is in. Updated version of All The Money In the World’s trailer as done with what was left over in the budget.

Have you ever stayed up late one Friday night and wondered what it would have looked like if Egon Schiele drew and painted Marty Feldman? No? … Yeah, me neither.
