Dogtooth dogtooth

The video for Franz Ferdinand's L. Wells is a real good treat, I promise!

It's Windows Media, so Mac users might have to use Flip4mac.

News is thin on the ground this week. It's a tough business, living for pleasure alone. I hope you enjoy this week's comics, the new artistic strategies I've been working on for the last month or so are hopefully bearing fruit.

I saw that video on the telly over the weekend and I liked it a lot! It looks very early-to-mid-1960s and the girl in it is a sweetie (I am struggling to overcome the envy this inspires in me).

I liked today's comic, by the way. Especially Shelley's impromptu versifying about the moon. Presumably it can see her underwear as well as everybody else's.

I had always imagined the clip for 'Eleanor put your boots on' as a flight of fancy with Shelley in true vectoring style. I just can't help but see Shelley in rather attractive boots floating (or perhaps being somewhat buffeted about) on the wind as she journey's across the Atlantic, as I listen to the sweet Franz.
If only I was a millionaire and could commission such whimsies - and indeed, John was inspired by such nonsense.
I guess I'll just have to print out the comic with Shelley and her mouse and make a flipbook! Wheeeee!

The power of cinema is astonishing. Some woman runs about, and yet it is captivating.
