Cartoons with a punch

Cartoon by Zunar.

A buddy sent me this link. Cartoon Movement is a really cool site that collects political cartoons and is open for submission.

On the horizon...

Some trailers that piqued my interest:

Shinya Tsukamoto's Tetsuo: The Bullet Man
. I'm a huge fan of the first installment Tetsuo: The Iron Man but didn't care much for the second Tetsuo: Body Hammer. (Maybe I need to rewatch the second.) Either way, I'm give this one a shot.

The Brothers Quay's latest stop-motion animation Maska is an adaptation of a Stanislaw Lem story. It looks to be a winner.

Johnny Tabor's horror movie Folklore looks promising.

Corpse Pusher by Gustavo Franco is definitely going to be a trippy treat.

Write it down

Interesting article on why writing by hand is more effective than typing.

Recently Read

Laymon's disturbing and horrific novel The Woods are Dark charges with exciting twists and turns but there was - I never I'd ever say this - too much needless sex and nudity. A decent read for those with strong stomachs.

Dick's The Cosmic Puppets is a far-reaching novel that begins with an odd mystery and leads to a startling look at our place in the cosmos. He spins this yarn without losing the reader. A definite recommendation.
