the demons of rest

Lynda Barry reads from Girls & Boys in the 1988 documentary Comic Books Confidential

God I love Lynda Barry. She's pretty much ruleage. I've bought a couple of her anthologies lately The Fun House and most recent Ond Hundred Demons. I've cried during a few parts because her shit is so visceral while deep and honest. She offers a writing workshop at the Omega Institute coming up in July of 2007. She doesn't have a website but there are a lot of fansites out there.

Len Lye || The Peanut Vendor 1933


sound creates shape: as i was talking on the phone to my mom i was clicking around and closing some windows that i had open on youtube. she began talkin about experiments with sound and shape and as she did i pressed play on a video. this is the video that started playing...which is exactly what she was talking about. she told me they did this experiment with mud as well...which starts to great 3D shapes.

The above drawing is done by Akwetey leader of Dragons of Zynth. I discovered them via Raedawn of Crunc Tesla who is in the band. I ended up meeting the rest of them down at SXSW Raedawn yelled my name and I walked over and met the other gents.
