You know, I don’t like Chase Bank, but I like what they did for this mural: “Meanwhile, one of Sheets’ mosaics just got a pricey facelift. Chase Bank, which now owns the former Home Savings chain, recently spent six months … Continue reading

B. Franklin gets a new look

“As if that weren’t enough, the U.S. Treasury went all out and made a blockbuster release video for the new $100 bill.” Even the New $100 Bill is Going 3D, Mashable, April 21, 2010 And I wish I had more … Continue reading

Mofo Grief! Weapon Brown #100

Part cyborg, all blockhead. Jason…I…you…um… I love these comics. Buy them. You’ll be glad you did. The first Weapon Brown, before Blockhead’s War, has a Christmas story in it.

Youtubetopia at Bitter Wallet

“If you’re someone who has to spend their whole day half-slumped in front of a computer keyboard, your time is almost certainly spent dreaming of razing the entire fucking office to the ground with a chainsaw. We feel your pain.” … Continue reading

1966

Was the world really a better place then? I wonder. You just don’t see PSAs like this anymore.

Lilo and Stitch is a masterpiece

I have been blessed to have not seen a Disney feature animation since Jungle Book, and as far as I knew I wasn’t missing anything. I was missing this: I can’t believe Disney made this. It has Elvis songs in … Continue reading

Understanding Japan

I don’t think we’re supposed to understand Japan. “It’s Japan Day here on Bitterwallet, which means we’ve got this story and possibly another one later on that heralds from the alien world of Pachinko, the original Hole In The Wall … Continue reading

Google Philistines

Or maybe it’s just a bot thing. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be an appeal. Oh well. Femme Femme Femme is a magnificent art blog that is a joy to read and voyage of discovery. It also gives my crappy … Continue reading

I love this photo by the very artistic Pablo Martinez Monsivais: I find the subject so inspiring.

Michelle on Vogue’s cover

This is about as close as I ever get to Vogue. It weighs too much for me to read. Take it away, David E! But she does look pretty cool on this cover.

Rabbit

Film Drunk’s Trippiest Video of 2008. And, yes, there’s more at the link. Very disturbing, but you’ll be able to say you saw it here.

This doesn’t surprise me

Bush is like Hitler to those people. Don’t forget Poland. Different decade, different location, same sick insanity of one man with too much power and no decent people anywhere near him. Old dog, still hunts.

Film Drunk agrees with me on Quantum of Solace

“Flame me all you want, but I saw Quantum of Solace over the weekend, and it was exactly what I was afraid of when they hired the stunt coordinator from Bourne: a bunch of blurry, shakey, incomprehensible action sequences. GARBAGE. … Continue reading

Shanghi Lil

The best part of the rather bizarre Footlight Parade. Opium dens, flag waving, aquatic lesbian orgies, furries, offensive stereotypes, Joan Blondell, etc. Busby Berkely was just obsessed with getting as much girl flesh on the screen as he could, wasn’t … Continue reading

Becoming obsessed with “The Music Man”

is probably better than becoming obsessed with the Republicans right now. Probably more American, too. This is such a goofy show. I love it. Strange, though, how Robert Preston can be hot without being sexy. Very strange.

Sa-woonovious: Bill Clinton Speaks!

And here is a very good page of all things DNC in Denver without the stupid commentary. Same old Bill, same old magic. (Geeze, just ignore the stupid commentary after Elvis, I mean, Bill, yeah, Bill leaves the stage.)

I guess this is useful if you have, y’know, a lot of t-shirts

I’m going to quit worrying that I don’t get out enough. I’m not making videos like this, so I must be getting out enough. Y’think?
