The Book of Weirdo - a history of the greatest magazine ever published

Robert Crumb launched Weirdo magazine in 1981. I bought the first issue from the comic book store I worked at in Boulder, Colorado, and it blew my mind. It had comics by Crumb (many people, including me, think Crumb's work in Weirdo is his best), a selection of incredible illustrations from the late Polish artist Stanislav Szukalski's bizarre theory about human evolution (Netflix has a new documentary about Szukalski produced by Leonardo DiCaprio), comics by homeless Berkeley cartoonist Bruce Du...

Crumb – “Part III”

New York-based quartet Crumb's last release, their second EP, Locket, came out back in 2017. Last March, they put out a trippy music video for that EP's title track. They spent the rest of the year busy touring and working on new material, and today we get … More »

M. Night Shyamalan's 'Glass' Doesn't Recognize Its Own Strength

None M. Night Shyamalan holds a unique place within the critical discourse of the film industry. These days, he's met with constant skepticism if not outright derision; after disasters like The Happening (2008), The Last Airbender (2010) and After Earth (2013), the mega-stardom that followed his early works dissolved almost entirely. Instead, he was left only with the kind of begrudging respect offered to cult directors, with the bar for reentry into the class of the respected set tremendously ...

Beyond the 88: A No-Fear Beginner’s Guide to Preparing the Piano

In my university music department, I run a weekly composition colloquium, bringing in guest composers and new music performers, as well as faculty speakers, with the latter often coming to talk about things like idiomatic writing and extended techniques for a particular instrument, or setting up a composer website, or digital publishing. A couple of years ago, some of my composition students asked me if I could spend one of those meetings on extended techniques for piano. I dug through my scores...

‘Glass’ Will Feature Unused ‘Unbreakable’ Footage

M. Night Shyamalan is about to release a sequel to not one, but two of his films. Glass will conclude the story first begun in Unbreakable, and then (secretly) continued with Split. And he’s making sure he covers all his bases. To properly connect Unbreakable to Split, Shyamalan has cut unused Unbreakable deleted scenes into Glass. He also clarified the timeline of just when Glass takes place. Ready for the M. Night Shyamalan Cinematic Universe? It all comes together next week with Glass. Sp...

‘Glass’ International Trailer Goes For Full-Blown Horror

Another new look at Glass is here, and it’s leaning heavily into horror movie territory. It’s been interesting to watch the progression of marketing for M. Night Shyamalan‘s new Unbreakable and Split sequel: some trailers have played up the superhero angle, some have looked more like mystery-thrillers, and now this, which sets out to give you the creeps. Watch the latest Glass international trailer below. Glass International Trailer  Uh-oh. Things are getting spoopy in this new Glass in...

‘Glass’ Trailer: “People are Going to Get Hurt” in M. Night Shyamalan’s New Movie

Everyone’s trapped under one roof in the latest Glass trailer. M. Night Shyamalan‘s sequel to both Unbreakable and Split brings characters from both of those films together, and sets them loose inside a mental hospital. This new trailer leans heavily on Samuel L. Jackson‘s ominous narration, as his character Elijah Price, AKA Mr. Glass, sets things in motion. “A lot of people are going to get hurt,” he says at one point, and it’s clear he’s not very upset about that. Watch the new Glass trailer...

‘Glass’ TV Spot Brings Superheroes into the Real World

Before Christopher Nolan gave superheroes the serious treatment with his Dark Knight trilogy, M. Night Shyamalan brought us Unbreakable, a film that asked: what if superheroes really existed? Now, Shyamalan finishes what he started with Glass, a sequel to both Unbreakable and his 2017 thriller Split. Unbreakable‘s Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson are back, and they’re going to have to deal with Split‘s James McAvoy and his many personalities. A new Glass TV spot below features new footage of ...

‘Glass’ Trailer: M. Night Shyamalan Brings ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split’ Together

Unbreakable fans have been hoping for a sequel for years, but almost no one expected it to happen like this. At the end of Split, M. Night Shyamalan revealed that the multiple-personality thriller was set in the same universe as his superhero deconstruction film. Now, Unbreakable and Split join together for Glass, a movie that looks to turn the superhero film as we know it upside down. Watch the latest Glass trailer below.  Glass Trailer I’ve remained a ride-or-die M. Night Shyamalan fan...

R. Crumb Illustrates Jean-Paul Sartre’s Nausea: Existentialism Meets Underground Comics

Sartre’s novel Nausea introduced his philosophical view as a form of illness to a WWII readership. “Nausea is existence revealing itself—and experience is not pleasant to see,” he wrote in his own summary of his first book, published in 1938. The novel’s dramatization of Historian Roquentin' s crisis presents a case of existential sickness as mostly involuntary. Though published before his many Marxist books and essays, Nausea connects the malaise to a certain class experience. “I have no troub...

After years of waiting, the Unbreakable sequel is almost here. And as an added bonus, it’s being combined with a Split sequel as well. M. Night Shyamalan‘s Glass follows up his most recent film while also closing the book on his 2000 superhero deconstruction flick as well. Watch the Glass trailer below. Glass Trailer The trailer for M.

Ru's Seeded sourdough with a twist Submitted by leslieruf on June 17, 2018 - 8:45pm. I loved the look of Ru's seeded SD so decided to have a go.  I made the exact quantity that she did but because I couldn't find any black sesame seeds I used black chia seeds instead.  I refreshed my rye starter that sulks in the fridge without being wanted for weeks on end.  Wednesday at 8:30 am I mixed together20 g starter + 40 g water + 38 g rye (all I had in the pantry)  and left at RT...

Underground Cartoonist Robert Crumb Creates an Illustrated Introduction to Franz Kafka’s Life and Work

The use of an author’s name as an adjective to describe some kind of general style can seem, well, lazy, in a wink-wink, “you know what I mean,” kind of way. One must leave it to readers to decide whether deploying a “Baldwinian” or a “Woolfian," or an “Orwellian” or “Dickensian," is justified. When it comes to “Kafkaesque,” we may find reason to consider abandoning the word altogether. Not because we don’t know what it means, but because we think it means what Kafka meant, rather than what he ...

Trump, hitting back at Jeff Flake, calls him "Flake(y)."

Here's the tweet, which is funny for a few reasons:Sen. Jeff Flake(y), who is unelectable in the Great State of Arizona (quit race, anemic polls) was caught (purposely) on “mike” saying bad things about your favorite President. He’ll be a NO on tax cuts because his political career anyway is “toast.”The funniest thing about it to me is Trump calling himself "your favorite President." It's absolutely accurate, because he is our only President. I mean, you might try to write a screwball comedy — i...

"Young people in China are rejecting Communist party propaganda for Western-style movie stars and celebrity culture..."

"... that’s the lesson behind the box office flop of a series big budget propaganda films according to observers. When the movie 'Founding Fathers of the Army,' which tells the story of the founding of the People’s Liberation Army, recently hit cinemas, officials hoped it would inspire an outpouring of patriotic feeling — instead it was mocked for trying to use popular film stars to lure younger viewers."Or so Newsweek tells us. No details of this mockery appear in the linked story. I see that t...
