Animation art from 1993 MTV series, BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD. Very popular when I was a teen—a snapshot of the 1990s.
There were two guys sitting behind me in Maths class who were always talking about this show. I remember them talking about an episode in which God appeared, and one quoted him in this low, booming “God” voice: “No, that sucks”—and they couldn’t stop laughing. Why are my brain cells actively holding on to scenes like this? Why, when I have a headache, am I visited by a parade of 1980s theme tunes, that haunt me like screaming night demons? That is what I must figure out.
Concept art and images of A.I.’s Rouge City, which, like BATMAN’s Gotham and DICK TRACY’s City, fascinates me. I’m always drawn to settings in movies, to locations; the darker and stranger, the better. It can’t be outlandish enough. People often describe say the Los Angeles of BLADE RUNNER as dystopian, nightmarish, but to me it’s appealing: I watch the film because it’s a place I want to visit.
