Prop of her game

Great interview on a movie prop builder with nice photos.

Truck Stop Coffee - Piper Bly 's Blog

quote [ This is my lil' blog where I write about cartooning, writing, jazz, open source, terrible action flicks, and other things that hold my interest. ]

Nice to see new blogs popping up ? this is all over the place, mostly about music. Must've read some of the comics some years ago.

Reflecting on the Rise and Fall of Artscape

quote [ ?Affordability? is a highly relative term. As evidenced by the pernicious yet popular semantic shift from ?affordable? to ?below market,? the concept of affordability now adheres more closely to standards set by the real-estate market than the budgets of artists and arts organizations. ]

If you need some insights in the messy state of arts vs real estate. Most of the paragraphs make great quotes. This is from Canada.

?The Substantiality of Spirit?: Georgiana Houghton?s Pictures from the Other Side

quote [ When Georgiana Houghton first exhibited her paintings at a London gallery in 1871, their wild eddies of colour and line were unlike anything the public had seen before ? nor would see again until the rise of abstract art decades later. But there was little intentionally abstract about these images: Houghton painted entities she met in the spirit regions. Viewing her works through the prism of friendship, loss, and faith, Jennifer Higgie turns overdue attention on an artist neglected by historians, a visionary who believed that death was not the end, merely a new distance to overcome. ]

Game Font Forensics

quote [ With all the lavish attention given to the appearance of text, Broussard still managed to famously misspell his own name on the title screen ]

Tagged "art" due to being about digital typography.

The quote reminds me of the hastily fixed a Street Fighter cabinet title typo by messing around with spritemaps.

Through the Cheval Glass: Reproduction in the Photographs of Clementina Hawarden

quote [ Soon after Clementina Hawarden began taking photographs in the mid-19th century, her eye caught on doubles, reflections, her daughters glimpsed in the mirror. Stassa Edwards examines the role that reproduction ? photographic, biological ? plays in this oeuvre, and searches for the only person not captured clearly: Hawarden herself. ]

Audio Guide

quote [ This burger wrapper... ]

I've been watching a lot of these short horror flicks since October, this one is particularly good. You could make the case this isn't a horror at all, since it's missing a lot of the typical elements, like blood & gore, or jump scares, or any on-screen deaths. Regardless, it certainly has the protagonist grappling with issues of horror, and I liked the actor's performance.
