Synopsis for "The Gorilla Boss of Gotham City!"

Boss Dyke is executed in the gas chambers for his crimes and his body is taken to a doctor who transplants the criminal's brain into that of a large gorilla. As a result, the gorilla gains consciousness and tells the doctor that after he and his gang have secured needed funds, he wants his brain then transplanted into the Batman's body and Batman's brain put into the gorilla.

As a gorilla, Dyke starts a series of crimes that would cause him to be chased by the authorities and his main goal is to make the Police unknowingly kill the Batman after the transplant had been performed. However, Batman is able to escape from the gorilla's grasp and the monster climbs to the top of a building before plunging to the ground, where he remains unconscious. Batman finally discovers the truth about the experiment and the crimes of Boss Dyke are finally revealed.

Blogista rides again


New York City June 24, 2019

When your mind can only handle insect-sized thoughts, DO INSECT SIZED TASKS.

behold, the micro-blog rides again.

-----------------------------------------------

As the world burns, as I am stuck on this island, not a desert island but one chock full of distractions, it is necessary to start sharing and communicating.

3 things 1,2,3,4

  1. something I am currently working on

  2. a REASON to be CHEERFUL

  3. something that mends the (always) broken world

FIRST OF ALL: here’s a studio shot of in progress text/storytelling painting.  Those are one foot by one foot canvases. They’re primed with courier text, the way Chardin would prime a canvas with a grey/blue underpainting. The bigger one is a big old wood door with the content of some ancient email wallpapered on it. That one is called ANXIETY OF INFLUENCE.

two: #reasontobecheerful 

Ian Dury, does he need an introduction? “Yes yes/Dear dear... Perhaps... Even... Never”. Well that’s what wiki is for.  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Dury   Anyhow it’s a category that’s always necessary. In a meta way, it’s only appropriate that Dury himself, ornery, competitive, idiosyncratic and highly individuated, lead this off.  One thing about Dury: he used British place names in his songs, much as Chuck Berry did, thereby imbuing the ordinary with mythic resonance. “MY GIVEN NAME IS DICKEY.AND I COME FROM BILLERICAY. AND I’M DOING... VERY WELL”

3. What can we do today, right now, to help mend the world?

bronze age comics fans get the notion that love was not about particular bodies. The Vision, Wanda, Swampy, Abagail. precursor: Silver from Metal Men. Hrrm.

Moore’s Swamp Thing is more organic, more loose, more pulpy, more comics and is holding up really well in these desperate times.

I participated in a sketchbook art show in brookline, ma this week. One of my most loyal supporters showed up and not only bought a Speed Paste Robot sketchbook, AKA “text generator” but actually negotiated the price UP from the asking price. 

In conversation... she mentioned that there was a lot of unfamiliar reference/context in this work. While I’m of the school that says this is actually 80% irrelevant, there is a nagging voice in my head that says:

• “what ABOUT ‘take me now baby here as I am’??!!

• “dispense with all that fake mysterioso horseshit and just present it all straight” there’s so much noise out there pretending to EXPLAIN SHIT that why not just SAY IT

work. process.

“After the basic track was complete, Chapman would record lead and backing vocals with Harry. However, this process was hampered by many songs not being written in time for the vocals to be recorded. "Sunday Girl", "Picture This" and "One Way Or Another" were all unfinished during the rehearsal sessions. When recording vocal parts, Chapman remembers asking Harry if she was ready to sing, only for her to reply "Yeah, just a minute" as she was still writing lyrics down. Chapman notes that many "classic" songs from the album were created this way.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_Lines
