Since I moved into a new house I find that I am going to the library more. The St. Louis County Library has a better website than the other county where I used to live. I typically order books online and then pick them up when they all get there. I also cruise the library and get a few non-fiction titles. This is what I am reading:
Are You My Mother? by Alison Bechdel. I’m a super fan of Bechdel so I bought this one.
B is for Beer by Tom Robbins
Black Hole by Charles Burns
Habibi by Craig Thompson, the author of Blankets.
Why I Became an Atheist by John Loftus
Best American Comics of 2011, edited by Bechdel, Abel, and Madden.
I spend more time reading than watching TV. Although, I devote Sundays to television. This is what I am currently watching:
Kind of Screwed is an awesome read about fair use in which Andy Baio, writer of waxy.org, got kicked in the teeth to the tune of $32k for pixelating Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue album cover photograph for his Kind of Bloop project.
…Kind of Bloop [is an] 8-bit tribute to Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue, one of my favorite albums of all-time. I’ve always wondered what chiptune jazz covers would sound like. What would the jazz masters sound like on a Nintendo Entertainment System? Coltrane on a C-64? Mingus on Amiga?
To be honest, it’s sounds crazy but it’s an interesting listen for sure. Kind of Blue is one of my favorite albums. Hearing it in 8-bit form is strange, to say the very very least.
Linked below that story was 80’s Album Covers Recreated With Comic Book Heroes and I feel obliged to share. These were all done by Cliff Chiang.
