The New Aesthetic: Time Travel Test video by Ellis Cullen. This is pretty neat.
Using my own photos from Instagram, I plotted the Lat and Longitude of each photo, taking me from London, to Liverpool, to the Scottish Border, and then Edinburgh. After looking further into the Lat and Long and how the co-ordinates were made up, I discovered time played an important part in the set up of the co-ordinates. This allowed me to then “time travel” backwards three days, to Canada, were my photos were took [SIC]. All info is true, the photos WOULD have been taken there, three days before. Spooky stuff.
In my pledge to have a more free-wheeling time with this blog, rather than take it so damn seriously with a cavalcade of whatever I’m working on, here’s something I thought up earlier tonight.
This blog has been titled “Holy Hangover, Batman” for a while now, after what I used to utter after a night out. I’m not so much into the drinking thing anymore, since I kinda like spending my money on books and comics and, you know, using my cash to produce the stuff I’m working on. Don’t get me wrong I like having a beer (or three in tonight’s case), but I don’t like being so brutally hungover the next day that I am utterly useless and can’t even function the following day. I feel like a waste of space and I have shit to do so I can’t waste a day moaning on the couch. That just sucks. It’s called being an adult, I guess.
In lieu of that, and actually trying to make the title of this blog mean something towards the content itself, I present the new series: Drinking in comic books. There’s actually a ton of drinking in mainstream superhero books so this page is from NEXTWAVE #7, written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Stuart Immonen. I love the fact that throughout the Captain’s digression about why he’s just called The Captain, Aaron Stack taps a keg into his brain. So subtle, so perfect. Drinking tally: three beers (an Ubu, an IPA, and a Barkeater Amber).
