Seeing Jeff Goldblum on the Craig Ferguson show a few days ago reminded me that 2014 is the (holy crap) 30th anniversary of The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, aka The Greatest Movie of All Time.
And while I know it’s irrational, since nearly everyone is still available I’m still holding out hope for Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League. You can’t stop me.
(My most profuse apologies if I have left your favorite cast member out of this montage. Everyone in the movie deserves recognition, I just got tired of Googling and Photoshopping.)
HOW DID I NOT REALIZE THAT RAWHIDE WAS THE SHERIFF IN SLEEPY HOLLOW
(I should watch it again soon and see how much I still have memorized.)
this is something that I would be okay with them using younger actors to fill the roles for if they did Buckaroo vs the World Crime League. JUST TO HAVE THE MOVIE OUT. and… you know… maybe more after….
No, it is not yet friday…
HOWEVER, TOMORROW IS FRIDAY.
Just think about it- masks, accessories, pouches and utility belts, FULL-ON LEATHER ARMOR, art prints, our infamous card deck, and TONS MORE STUFF. And it’s all in easy reach.
Not going to the con? No worries- just hit us up on the website.Otherwise, hope to see you there!
THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST USE OF THE SNK OPENING

Stanley R. Mickelsen Safeguard Complex
A huge pyramid in the middle of nowhere tracking the end of the world on radar. An abstract geometric shape beneath the sky without a human being in sight. It could be the opening scene of an apocalyptic science fiction film, but it’s just the U.S. military going about its business, building vast and other-worldly architectural structures that the civilian world only rarely sees.
The Library of Congress has an extraordinary set of images documenting the Stanley R. Mickelsen Safeguard Complex in Cavalier County, North Dakota, showing it in various states of construction and completion.
Taken for the U.S. government by photographer Benjamin Halpern, the particular images seen here show the central pyramid—pyramid, obelisk, monument, megastructure: whatever you want to call it—that served as the site’s missile control building. Like the eye of Sauron crossed with Giza, it looks in all directions, its all-seeing white circles staring endlessly at invisible airborne objects across the horizon.
having the Genders, privilege guilt, social alienation, art lyfe, being lonely, love (too little or too much), untreated illnesses both mental and physical, This Shithole Economy, This Bullshit Country, and tragic stories about animals (and some people) we tried to help and couldn’t.
reading this stuff gives you a very very strong impression of our generational character (acutely sensitive, empathic to the point of pain, poor, unemployed, strongly opposed to gender structures and all kinds of oppression, incredibly creative, depressed, and desperate for connection) and for that reason alone, even if i wasn;t doing this for any other purpose, i think this project is valuable, and it’s value of a sort that has nothing to do with me or my drawings. i think i can use the word “zeitgeist” unironically, here (but i won’t). and the words “yearning”, and “longing”, and “tragedy”.
i guess i just thought it was worth mentioning that the most interesting thing about seeing 300+ “problems” in a singular format, mostly from anonymous people, is how little they differ from one another.
Lets have a dystopian future movie where none of the actors are white
Not a single one
There’s just no white people and not a single character questions it
Watch how quickly people notice and get pissed off
but wouldn’t it be better to put one white extra in the far background of a huge crowd shot for a few frames, so we could point to them every time someone gets pissed off?
Why does it have to be a dystopian future?
What about a movie set in the Kenya of the 22nd century, a Kenya that’s a world capital of trade, science, and industry? A Kenya that has built a space elevator at the summit of Kilimanjaro, a Kenya whose city streets are alive with the smells of coffee, soldering smoke, and spices? A Kenya that did everything right that the United States and Europe and northeastern Asia did wrong?
Not a utopia, because those are boring, but a future to look forward to? The dream of Afrofuturism realized, in a believable, but still dreamlike and fantastic way?
And, yeah, while we’re at it, an all-black cast. Because KENYA.
Someone built Metropolis in Africa. That’s the plot of the movie.
The rest of the world has fallen into economic despair and endless brushfire wars, but someone in Africa got it right.
