(Re)Workings of a Debased Machine

A fitting tribute to a film finally (re)complete, all the gears and cogs (and biblical revelations) reveled.

Carefree Cannons

Enoch Bolles takes us back to the time (1962, it seems) when a lady can enjoy a cannon and be quite spirited. Ahh, those were the days.

Alley dinosaurs

I mostly like the casual way throwing of th rock into the (awesomely drawn) dinosaurs, but the whole strip is fun of a bygone era.

Outer Sanctum (by Kurtzman and Elder)

[Enlarge Here]

Another fantastic example of mad in it's prime, the young era of Kurtzman and crew. So young in fact that this was when they were an actual comic book(and in color), before the shift to b&w magazine to avoid the comic code. Nonetheless this is a fantastic example of funny writing and wonderful details in each panel. From 1953, issue #5, a sharp parody of the radio serial The inner sanctum. Enjoy.

Runaway Train, can never come back

Life isn't all helpful hobos and fun getaways it seems.

I'm sure crumb, and many others, pondered this over a sleepiness night.

From the Darkest Part of the North

Feeling in an experimental mood, and one I can't help but share. This is the opening track to an astonishing lp of dark ambient music, ostensibly (and I use that word somewhat loosely) in relation to black metal. The man's real name is Varg Vikernes, whose history and place in music is.. complicated to say the least(and will no doubt be of some controversy those that know him).

Nonetheless this track was not only appreciated by me but also a friend who dislikes this sort of music in general, hence an appeal to a potentially unknowing audience seems ideal. I hope you enjoy it as much as she did. Enjoy.
