How can there be two songs named Tenderoni? Seriously, Kele. And Chromeo’s is better anyway.

Jeff Lemire

Posted in art, comics by arcanedufresne on April 28, 2010

Jeff Lemire’s work was first brought to my attention at the inception of his newest comic Sweet Tooth. I recently stumbled across his blog that displays a variety of his creations. I really dig his distinct style and work, especially his interpretations of classic comic heroes (like Hawkman and The Atom, below). I’ve always wanted to have an artist do a commissioned piece someday and Lemire is definitely someone I would be interested in. While perusing the blog, I discovered also that he will be writing for the upcoming new Brightest Day spin-off for The Atom.

Charlie Bronson

Posted in movies by arcanedufresne on April 27, 2010

Last night, I watched the movie Bronson and would recommend it’s viewing. Based on the true story of British prisoner Michael Peterson, who becomes Charles Bronson, who has spent 30 of his 34 years in prison in solitary confinement in hopes of becoming Britain’s most violent prisoner. Tom Hardy does an awesome job of portraying the deranged Peterson/Bronson. Check it out.

The 100 Page Comic

Posted in accomplices/associates, art, inspiration by arcanedufresne on April 26, 2010

Jason Turner has created this epicly awesome idea for a one page comic. Here’s what you do: grab a book; open it up to page 100; draw a one page comic based on the content of the book’s page 100.

What I am hoping to do is try my hand at a few of these but ultimately, get a slew of friends involved in this as well. We could all draw a few comics from some of our favorite books or books we are currently reading and then I would have everyone mail me there comics and compile them in a hand-bound DIY “100 Page Comic.”

I need participation to make this successful. All you need to do is pick a book, find page 100 (make sure the books has 100 pages first), draw a one page comic on a standard sheet of 8″x11.5″ paper and then mail it to me unfolded in some sort of manila envelop to protect your creation.

Any takers? Let me know if you are interested.

Edit: Would it be kind of cool to get 100 different one page comic interpretations from page 100 of 100 different books to make the final compilation?

Call me crazy…

…but I don’t give a care. I saw some dude pick these up at UBIQ when I was there Saturday and I fell in love. Nike Lunar Chukka Woven+ Rainbow Quickstrikes and I might just gift myself these as a summer treat.

Monday’s Music

Posted in music by arcanedufresne on April 26, 2010

Music Monday has been sparse but I’ve got some new discs rotating that I thought I would share with you. Also, if Kevin and Ty are reading this, consider this your cue to start thinking about that road trip playlist you want to hear on the way to Niagara next weekend. Hopefully some of these tunes carry me through today because it is going to be a battle.
