West Coast Avengers: Initiative

If instead of giving you idiotic humps a brand new book w/brand new characters, a battle against hobo-zombies, a tussle w/some throwback villains & a melee w/a new team of villains — you guys got another stupid wolverine comic, would you have bought it? i mean, i know the answer for me, but what about you humps. The Order was a fantastic book. It’s a shame it’s canceled. I hope some of these characters make it into some other titles, although, obviously the team dynamic will be lost. Pick up a trade or two.

where’s my money, honey? (part 1)

inspired by Chris Sims’ fantastic writeup of Luke Cage demanding his scrilla, i decided to find the absolute best image (quality wise) from the intarweb as possible.

Cage, Doom, Money Honey

the original goal was a typical “big image w/ sound file” post including a link to Sims’ blog. i even had a nice little song picked out and that would be that.

however, along the way, a few cool things happened…

like, finding a shitload of remixes of got your money from all across the internets.

which, was sorta perfect, because i had already decided to start remixing the picture myself.

for years, I have been saying that hip-hop is the cornerstone of our cut’n’paste culture. this “project” has showed me how things have advanced and how everyone is borrowing from everyone. Ctrl+C -> Ctrl+V, indeed.

as we continue along this jurnee, we will see the true glory of samples, allusions, remixes, refixes, slight winks/nudges and everything that incorporates how my brain works.

or, something like that…

XX(2) girlfriend.

(yoinked from the good folx over at hypebeast)

i’m pretty sure you can spy jill marie-jones for a couple of seconds in this one. she might have made some nice greenbacks but i’m pretty sure we’d rather see her w/the rest of the cast on girlfriends. of course, diana’s daughter is gettin’ a lil’ more time to showcase that magnificent bubble, but you gotta feel sorry for jill. bailey’s commercial w/some no name yella dude and now this? let’s hope her upcoming projects are a success.

oh yeah, peep the new jordans. if you pause at the takeoff point, you can see the nastiest warp/ deformation in the lace area… you can also peep just how much these jawns crease, as well. you can almost see dude’s toe nail through the “leather.” never been a jordan fan, but i’ve always loved the commercials. this one (the commercial) is another success.

my girl seems to think that the lady in the commercial isn’t Jilly. i know that it’s a form of hate. the only logical explanation is that she doesn’t like mike & thinks the lips is above such a weak cameo. didn’t she see the briscoe high joint?

suspension of disbelief.

the ‘rama put up a preview of New Avengers f. the Ronin Suit. it features an e-mail to a blind guy and a def girl working as an undercover spy. the accompanying discussion thread points out the inherent problems w/this.

of course, we understand, in the age we live in (plus, add in basic comic book gizmology) that matt “monkey smash” murdock could easily use an audio screen reader to read(hear) what lil’ Echo has to say, but… how, exactly does Echo know what these yakuza braggarts are saying to each other unless she is looking at their lips? does the pronunciation of different syllables send a different amount of alcohol tinged breath into the air which she then interprets into words? how fast can anyone do that? she doesn’t have spidey sense, right? so if i yell, “Troyer” from behind her on a crowded dancefloor, will she know to jump because a rush of small geek’d up drunkards will be rushing from her blindside?

maybe she uses mirrors.
