Gel you bastard. Why does your linework and colours have to be so rad?i’m actually terrible with colors. all the colors i used there are completely flat, and made with a painty brush to make it look fancy. i just shade a little bit with pencil to give the illusion of color value.
Nope, everyone needs to witness this. This is Hatebeak, a death metal band whose lead singer is Waldo, an African Grey. You’re welcome.
Life On Mars?
even if you’re not a fan of david bowie… even if this isn’t “your kind of music”… even if you’ve heard it before… listen to this song.
it’s not that long and it’s a beautiful sensory experience from start to finish. it’s got a catchy melody, really exciting climaxes, and the lyrics are fun. the theme of the lyrics gives a really interesting glimpse into the themes that characterized the glam rock era. here’s what david bowie said about the lyrics:
"A sensitive young girl’s reaction to the media… I think she finds herself disappointed with reality… that although she’s living in the doldrums of reality, she’s being told that there’s a far greater life somewhere, and she’s bitterly disappointed that she doesn’t have access to it"
i like this because it shows that popular music back then was really deep and meaningful.
It’s a bit like flashcards on steroids.
When we read, our eyes move across a page or a screen to digest the words. All of that eye movement slows us down, but a new technology called Spritz claims to have figured out a way to turn us into speed-readers. By flashing words onto a single point on a screen, much like watching TV, Spritz says it will double your reading speed.
