MUSIC: The Men They Couldn't Hang

The Men They Couldn’t Hang (TMTCH) are a British rock band whose mixture of folk and punk is not dissimilar to that of The Pogues (in fact founder member Shanne Bradley was an original female punk artist and founder of Shane MacGowan’s first band, The Nipple Erectors).

WTF?? Slow Motion boob manipulation porn or outsider art.?

It’s just that they’re odd.The oddity comes from the juxtaposition of the closeups of jiggling,wiggling and acrobatically manipulated bosoms, in SLOW-MOTION(wtf?) with oddly cheerful and muzak-y soundtrack!In the old days of tape bootlegging and trading this kind of thing would end up on some “mondo video” collection.

UM. I really gotta stop drunk flickr-ing…

I realized this post needed clarification- YES i’m a PERV. YES, I regularly do things like drunk-searching for “boobs” on FLICKR. this search …I did not count on this. crescenthead, amateur producer of pics and vids of floppy, buoyant and lactating breasts, is not your father(or mother’s) prolific purveyor of passion. It’s not that the videos & photos are that original or weird or perverted per se (unless of course you find lactation weird or perverted); It’s just that they’re odd.

In the old days of tape bootlegging and trading this kind of thing would end up on some “mondo video” collection. Or maybe my friend Matt paradise’s Public Access show, SUBTERRANEAN SINEMA (we shall miss you Matt). Anyways, what I like about Crescenthead’s ouvre is that it has a kind of outsider art sincerity to it. A weird, peverted(yay perverts!!) sincerity- but sincerity nonetheless.

AMAZON KINDLE FOR ECOMIC DISTRO?

I was checking out DONNA BARR’s article on her blog on COMICTALK.COM, “Nobody Does It But Lulu”, where she documents her awful experience with the (hopefully soon defunct) dissapointing blight on the fetal eComic/downloadables industry – WOWIO.COM(recently bought out by scandal-historied, PLATINUM COMICS).

I was checking out DONNA BARR‘s article on her blog on COMICTALK.COM, Nobody Does It But Lulu, where she documents her awful experience with the (hopefully soon defunct) dissapointing blight on the fetal eComic/downloadables industry – WOWIO.COM(recently bought out by scandal-historied, PLATINUM COMICS). Barr writes,

So far, the only dependable, cheap way to order downloads for my books has proven to be at Lulu. The prices are never above 96 cents for any download.

The update on downloadables:

  • Booksurge lost that ability several years ago.
  • Mobipocket is insanely complicated, and the downloads cost the customer as much as the hardbacks (what’s up with THAT?).
  • Clickwheel and Magwheel have lots of enthusiasm, but they’re not up and running yet, not really.
  • Wowio is unreliable and can’t keep up payments.
  • I haven’t tried loading comics on Amazon’s Kindle yet. I’ll have to get at that next. Maybe. I haven’t even looked at their prices yet.

Sigh. The longer I spend working with distribution and getting it fixed for the future, the farther off goes my working on my books. …”

So I decided to check out the KINDLE- and here’s a handy video to describe its uses and so on. YES, I know- It IS hype. However- It may be one method of mass download/distro in a paperless eventual comics world we, as potential DIY comic creators are going to have to face down the road. I am intrigued. I am not “sold” on it. But it is food for thought.
