what? WANTED
Security: Public
Tagscomic


WANTED is a short series of Comics by Mark Millar. A colleague at the bank pointed it out to me and lend me a copy some time ago. Seems to be so there will be a movie on it this summer.

The comic is about your usual looser. Your office worker with the girlfriend he gets to fuck once a month, for she is busy fucking others. It's a whimp that gets scolded all the time. But then somebody tells him he inherrited his fathers legacy. The money, the fame and the job...

The comic is great, couldn't let it go and dearly do want my own copy. I read the hardcover assasins edition, but that was rather special.

The movie coming... Well, I saw the trailer and you cannot really call it a copy of the cmic. Just the storyline seems to be in it and not really the concept what made the comic rock. But here is a trailer.

Death Note is a very intriging anime. You really need to like mental warfare, for that is what it is about. I'm rating it an 8, Deathgods are hilarious.

what? Claymore

Claymore is a 26 episode anime that takes place in a medieval setting where the world is being pestered by demon-like creatures. There are maidens walking around killing those demons and saving humanity called Claymores. But there is something about them...

I'm giving it an 7, for it is a good shot at trying to make the manga work in anime.

Couldn't get a better version then from animekick. Sorry.

Moving around again on the net and then you find something that catches your eye.

This picture made me look further:


This is "The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living" by Damien Hirst (1991)

"Saatchi years" 1991–2003
Saatchi had offered to fund whatever artwork Hirst wanted to make, and the result was showcased in 1992 in the first Young British Artists exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in North London. Hirst's work was titled The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living and was a shark in formaldehyde in a vitrine. It cost Saatchi £50,000. The shark had been caught by a commissioned fisherman in Australia and had cost £6,000. The exhibition also included A Thousand Years. As a result of the show, Hirst was nominated for that year's Turner Prize, but it was awarded to Grenville Davey.


it looks strange...

The man makes art from skulls, he has a fascination for flesh and uses dead animals. The last thing might be disturbing for soem people, but if the animal is already dead.... Why do you not complain about stuffed animals?

They say it is not art, but what is art these days? Art brings a feeling towards the viewer. If you get angry, you made it art.

I got goosebumps...

what? how too: Grime

Tagsclicking
not being able to find complete anime series, I've found another channel that does 5 minute films about grime and film-make-up. It's being explained simple and nerdy, but for the creative people in make-up you can get their basics and ad your own imagination.

This Anime is better known as '12 Kingdoms'.
45 episodes of fantasy, drama and politics. Keep your head with it, for you don't watch just pretty pictures. Lots of repeating every now and then, for there are 12 kingdoms and they have states, different rulers and do not get confused by all the names. They say they will continue the series when the novels are finished... and since the last novel was brought out on march 11 this year... we can wait for a long while.

Rating...
Hard, giving it a 7 for now.

As the title says so. A group of 'gifted' people check out hounted places. Great concept, and if I believe the reviews, the manga is supposed to be far better. They are not telling the whole story in the anime and it feels like there must be another season soon. Right now, it sucks.
