I’m curious - how active is the khr fandom on here? I’ve been lurking in the tags, but I have no clue how recent the posts are. Are there any khr fanfic writers on here? I just want some people that are still interested in this fandom to talk to.
Keith Haring painting a mural on
Houston Street and Bowery in Manhattan, 1982.
This was Keith’s first major outdoor mural. It became an instant downtown landmark after Keith painted it in the summer of 1982. The mural was up for only a few months in the summer of 1982 before it was painted out but its image remains imprinted in the memory of many people who were part of the downtown artist community in the early 1980s.
In 2008 the Keith Haring Foundation, Goldman Properties and Deitch Projects recreated the mural using the extensive photographic documentation of the original work. The work was unveiled on May 4, 2008 the day that would have been Keith Haring’s 50th Birthday .
Keith’s former collaborater, graffiti artist Anel Oritz (LA II) contributed by tagging the wall and filling in the negative space with an intricate black interlocking pattern.

“The context of where you do something is going to have an effect. The subway drawings were, as much as they were drawings, performances. It was where I learned how to draw in public. You draw in front of people. For me it was a whole sort of philosophical and sociological experiment. When I drew, I drew in the daytime, which meant there were always people watching. There were always confrontations, whether it was with people that were interested in looking at it, or people that wanted to tell you you shouldn’t be drawing there…”
“I was learning, watching people’s reactions and interactions with the drawings and with me and looking at it as a phenomenon. Having this incredible feedback from people, which is one of the main things that kept me going so long, was the participation of the people that were watching me and the kinds of comments and questions and observations that were coming from every range of person you could imagine, from little kids to old ladies, or art historians.” - Keith Haring

Toonami was perhaps one of the biggest deliverymen of anime to the western world. The block showcased some of the most beloved Japanese cartoons of their time: everything from Dragon Ball Z to Hamtaro. It reared a generation of anime fans the world over, being broadcast in North and Latin America, the UK, Australia, and more. The block’s peak eras featured a CGI robot named TOM serving up action shows from all over the world–but some of Japan’s best offerings were the stars. The lineup wasn’t just limited to shows; there were relatively obscure Japanese animated films, and animated music videos in special events.
The block ended for several years after many changes to the lineup. In 2012, however, Adult Swim brought it (and many of its vintage anime stars) back for a night of April Fools activities. The nostalgia and fun this brought to so many encouraged a revival–one that’s still on every Saturday night, showcasing some of the biggest new names in anime today.
This was perhaps the most iconic of their specially made bumpers, even being aired during the 2012 April Fools block. In it, the narration weaves a monologue about dreams and destiny, set to clips from various action anime. Ambient music, the kind the block is known for, plays in the background, carrying the mood. A simple promotional message that conveys something a little bit more. It manages to fully convey just why a programming block on Cartoon Network was much more to a generation.
“Believe in yourself, and create your own destiny. Don’t fear failure.”
