“I really wanted to keep making music, but my label had shelved my records for two years. And I…I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to incorporate cinematic strings with a heavier, nastier sound and lyrics.”
So this is a cataloging librarian’s worst nightmare (or an anal-retentive husband’s), but this is such a great scene with a young Ellen Barkin and Daniel Stern.
SHREVIE: Have you been playing my records?
BETH: Yeah, so? SHREVIE: So didn’t I tell you the procedure?
BETH: Yeah you told me all about it Shrevie, they have to be in alphabetical order.
SHREVIE: And what else? BETH: Ugh they have to be filed alphabetically and according to year is what, ok?
SHREVIE: And what else? What else?
BETH: I don’t know.
SHREVIE: You don’t know. Well let me give you a hint, ok? I found my James Brown record filed under the “J”s, instead of the “B”s. I don’t know who taught you to alphabetize. But to top it off he’s in the rock and roll section instead of the R&B section. How could you do that?
BETH: It’s too complicated Shrevie. See, every time I pull out a record there’s this whole procedure I have to go through. I just want to hear the music, that’s all.
Got around to reorganizing my E7 collection a little. Top shelf for plushes, next is JP DVDs and small charms, then NA DVDs and BDs alongside manga, CDs and novels (alongside misc. items) and the lowest shelf has my official artbooks/magazines along with 2 building kits for Terminus series LFOs.
To the left of the shelves (and in the last picture) are my mini shelves of E7 figures. Mostly Robot Damashii.
After many re-tries I finally finished this conversion ;-; All the credits to modish kitten for the mesh & textures. I didn’t convert the whole set though, only the 4 shelves, the singles & stacked records. Also you’re gonna have to use MOO to put the records on the shelves.
The second arc of Gillen and McKelvie’s hit series will arrive in time to shake up your December
“A glorious new comic series about death, creativity and pop.” —Pitchfork
THE WICKED + THE DIVINE, the white-hot new series by writer Kieron Gillen and artist Jamie McKelvie about gods being briefly reincarnated as pop stars before dying, drew crowds of worshippers and is heading into a thrilling new story arc that will leave fans shocked and breathless. With each issue of the first arc flying off the shelves at record speed, this new story arc promises an even higher degree of electrifying story this December.
The Faust Act is over. Welcome to Fandemonium. The second arc of THE WICKED + THE DIVINE begins with issue #6 in its traditional manner (i.e. a ludicrous pun) and something like “nothing will ever be the same again.” But if you think about it, you can say that about literally everything, ever. Also, some comic story. Probably.
Writer Gillen remained coy about the second arc’s plot twists, but hinted that each issue would pack a punch readers wouldn’t see coming. “With the first arc, we wanted an intense, classic comics’ build, rising towards the fifth issue as this big, earthquake-sized heart-attack climax,” said Gillen. “Our second arc—FANDEMONIUM—is different. It’s a line of chasers on the bar, each a micro-nuke cocktail, served with a wink and distilled for concentrated effect. The first arc was a week or so in the gods’ two-year lives. In the second arc, each issue is separated by a whole month and focuses around a single gathering of fans. Time’s running out. Time’s always running out.”
THE WICKED + THE DIVINE #6 arrives in stores this 12/17 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code OCT140611.
