Scan from Tokyo Babylon. Reading things laying unread around the house. I gifted this because I believed All Things Clamp Were Good. And it is. Bit of a BL drag at times.. but very stylish and the screentones are very tight. Kind of stupid to buy omnibuses though — and this extends beyond manga. Ridiculous oversized books that you can’t take outside the home and never seem to end. And manga omnibuses are always a set of omnibuses, and not the full story.

Cute sushi-like food from The Hive. Robert Crumb is quoted on the back of the book — he says Charles Burns is almost not human.

"This world of ours is a dream. In our fantasies at night lie the only reality." Edogawa Rampo

I love this manga. It is done by Suehiro Maruo based on the novel by Edogawa Rampo. I am really in love with the 1920s style of architecture and fashion, and this book is a great sentiment to that, as well as a compelling and strange story. 

Reblogging this because it has the best selection of pages I could find on tumblr. Last Gasp actually put out an overproduced trailer video. As I read this yesterday I couldn’t help but be chased by the old concept of ‘mastery’.. you can see it in the earlier pages, when Maruo draws a good lot of redundant panels just to decompress and lighten the mood. The story itself is just an excuse for the artist to stretch his legs — a man has a plan and he follows it. It ends with some 30 pages of lush erotica, lush in the sense of intensely working the scene just to frame a few naked bodies.

A vicious BBC headline and a spectacular photo from the New York Times. This iron dome technology..how much will the israeli defense industry profit from it? Because if you ignore the mentions of rockets the death toll is like 200 to 1. I would love to go to Israel.. in fact I would love go to a merged Israel and Palestine even more. I thought this business would go away as we were growing up.. now it seems it remains  the most powerful remnant of the lamest 20th-century geopolitics.

Love this gif set made by some Dakota Fanning tumblr fanblog. It really creates something else off a film that is entirely opposed to the idea of fanblogs, tumblr, etc. Night Moves is the latest film by Kelly Reichardt, and this time she populates it with A-list celebs, save for Peter Sarsgaard, who’s banking his career on playing villains, which is fitting. They perform under the rules of naturalism, which means mostly shutting up (Jesse Eisenberg is forced to play against his Mark Zuckerberg).

In fact this is a story about environmentally concerned people (not “activists” nor “terrorists”) who have to deal with the consequences of their actions. Reichard applies the contemplative mood to its obverse, a thriller, in which the smallest actions make the heart beat. Here, crime walks with paranoia, and paranoia can only be documented through a persistent and attentive camera. It helps that the whole thing takes place in some kind of arcadian rural Oregon, where you can slide panels of green foliage back and forth and still have beautiful scenery in perfect lighting. Later the pressure of genre comes knocking; an exquisite spa from earlier in the movie becomes, of course, the scene of a crime.

Evolutionary note from Free!

Watched L’Inconnu du Lac, a french movie from last year. A very classic take on cruising that develops as a crime story — what is up with crime, really? It is everywhere in movies. To me it seemed like an overblown take on the top-bottom relationship, with a bland bottom being lost to a psychopathic top. 
What’s interesting here is the character of Henri, a wandering fat guy who serves as the door through which the audience is able to empathize with the main character. He spends his days at the lake doing nothing, and his story in unmoving, although realistic. He seems unfazed by cruising, never spectating, but also soothed by the calm and silence. Obviously the last story in the Lovebirds cycle will double as an Henri fanfic.
