Hello there
@general-misfit … What’s up? Do you have someone to be with you or talk with? I will talk if you want.

Distracting things:

+if you can deal with moving gifs, check out some of the math blogs on Tumblr.

+Eat something if you are hungry. Sleep or rest if you are tired.

+Look up the Samaritans in the UK online. You can email them and someone named Jo will email you back. All of their volunteers are named Jo. They don’t report you or try to talk you out of anything. They are super nice!

+Draw something or write a short story about someone you are angry at. I have gotten some of my revenge art and writing published in little zines (no money but still).

+Message me (you may have to follow me temporarily) or someone else on Tumblr.

I know I am just another stranger here but I do care a bit because I have felt suicidal in the past. I bet a few other folks here think of you as important to them too.

Nanni Moretti’s film, starring Margherita Buy as a movie director and John Turturro as an American star, makes a case for blurriness in art and life.

Pixar: 20 Years of Animation - MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art | Art & Architecture ...

Pixar: 20 Years of Animation
MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Genre: Art & Architecture
Price: Get
Publish Date: December 3, 2010

Pixar: 20 Years of Animation December 14, 2005–February 6, 2006 In keeping with the Museum’s long tradition of presenting animation, this is the most extensive gallery exhibition that MoMA has ever devoted to the genre. Featuring over 500 works of original art on loan for the first time from Pixar Animation Studios, the show includes paintings, concept art, sculptures, and an array of digital installations. These works reveal the intricate, hands-on processes behind Pixar’s computer-generated films—including Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars, and numerous shorts. The exhibition also includes a complete retrospective of Pixar films. Demonstrating the symbiotic relationship between traditional and digital media pioneered by the studio over its twenty-year history, Pixar: 20 Years of Animation is a tribute to the artists whose work has reinvented the genre. The Yoshiko and Akio Morita Gallery features the world premiere of two media pieces that embody the intersection of art and science that distinguishes computer animation. Artscape, a widescreen projection created by artist/director Andrew Jimenez and sound designer Gary Rydstrom, invites viewers to experience, in the context of a digital installation, much of the handcrafted art shown elsewhere in the exhibition. Zoetrope is a dynamic installation, modeled on pre-cinema technology, which rotates character sculptures under a strobe light to simulate continuous motion. To view images of these artworks, please visit the Online Collection at MoMA Audio is available free of charge courtesy of Bloomberg.

UFC fighter Nick Diaz involved in Las Vegas brawl, but reports are sketchy

What happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas, the old ad line goes. Apparently, that involves mixed martial arts fighter Nick Diaz.

Published reports had Diaz involved in a brawl early Wednesday outside a nightclub at the Bellagio hotel complex. Those reports were based on information from the celebrity gossip site TMZ.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, police had no record of the incident. The Las Vegas Review-Journal also had information on the fight, but both newspapers’ stories leaned heavily on TMZ.

Websites for Vegas TV and radio stations offered little or no news of the incident.

In comments to media members via Twitter, representatives for the hotel and nightclub provided no information other than saying Diaz was “well behaved”  and a welcome patron.

NOTE: The photo accompanying this story is of Diaz after his Jan. 31, 2015, UFC fight against Anderson Silva.

Diaz is the brother of Nate Diaz, who lost a five-round fight to Conor McGregor on Saturday in Las Vegas. Nick Diaz was suspended by UFC, the top MMA promotion operation, after testing positive for a banned substance after the Silva fight. His suspension period has ended, but Diaz has not been reinstated because he has yet to pay a $75,000 fine levied by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

The Vegas brawl, according to TMZ, began when Diaz bumped into man in a restroom. An apology from Diaz didn’t cool the man, who with three other men assaulted the professional fighter.

It ended badly for the four men as the brawl reportedly spilled into the Bellagio casino. Security personnel broke up the fight. Diaz was left with a gash on his head.

Blue Beetle: Rebirth #1

Written by: Keith Giffen

Art by: Scott Kolins

Publisher: DC Comics

When DC announced their  Rebirth initiative back in February, they promised to bring back relationships and instil a sense of much needed fun into the DC Universe. Flash forward to this week and one of my all time favourite heroes, and for my money, most fun, arrives in an all new debut issue that lives up to the rebirth moniker, by delivering a book for new and old Blue Beetle readers to enjoy.

This issue actually features not one, but two Blue Beetles, and their differing personalities. Jaime Reyes is very much a reluctant hero, as he wants nothing more than to be a regular high schooler. Unfortunately for Jaime he has a piece of supposed alien technology attached to his spine and an overly eager billionaire philanthropist in Ted Kord. Speaking of Ted, it’s a treat to see him doing Beetle-e things again and his enthusiasm and child-like sense of wonder is very contagious.

This book’s concept is over the top but it works because Giffen and Kolins lean into the zaniness. This issue also smartly decides to focus on establishing character as its main objective and all but does this to perfection. Jaime’s sister appears on one page, as do his parents, and yet they are all established as likeable characters, and ones that are easily relatable to. Giffen brings the comedy with basically all the characters, even the coffee drinking, body splitting mercenaries that go toe to toe with Jaime in his beetle garb. They have some great one liners that cover such topics as chatty superheroes, the proper way to drink coffee and they even find the time to show off some spelling skills. Less relatable unfortunately are Jaime’s friends, Brenda and Paco who’s dialogue comes off as unnatural and static, as all they do is squabble for no real reason.  The twist at the end of the book does seem to give some hope to them as interesting in the future, as family drama tends to spice up even the most insufferable characters. Thankfully, they are the only characters introduced who fall flat, and considering the amount of people introduced that is a feat.

Along with the great quips and laughs this issue also builds towards the future plot wise, as a mystery involving the nature of Jaime’s scarab and a potential lead villain are introduced in the final couple of pages. While there isn’t much page time given to these mysteries, they are presented in an interesting enough manner that warrants their inclusion.

Scott Kolins art fits the fun tone of this book perfectly, as this issue reads as one nonstop joy ride. His action scenes are chaotic, and the way in which he throws facial expressions in feels natural, while also lending to the comedy that makes this book such a treat. The chaotic, energetic feel of the book is furthered by the way Kolin’s constructs his panels, as almost every page has a different configuration that adds to the feeling of motion that the script and pencils convey.

Unlike many other rebirth specials, Blue Beetle hits the ground running, setting a fun tone full of intriguing characters, bombastic visuals and great one liners. If this debut is any indication of the quality of this book going forward, then it’s a good time to be a comic reader, regardless of whether you like the colour blue, or beetles.

there is no schedule for hand-drawn and computer-drawn pages for this comic

they’re uploaded in the order they’re completed, and the computer ones are easier to do at 4am

Author’s Note

That’s a sketchbook. And a pencil. If you couldn’t tell.
