Misty Jem in the Looming Fog...

I am always somewhat moved and pleased when I see fan art work for nostalgic shows that far outstrip the source material. Jem and the Holograms had the label of being "truly, truly outrageous" but was more less a show where one could see where everything was going, and not much sparks in the journey there. This artwork isn't a great piece, but their is hint of a viewpoint, a twist of human emotion. Something the original show never had, to a large extent. This isn't stealing material, this is a marvelous reinvention, a foothold to quality. Bravo.

Window Ducks

[Enlarge Here]

From a site dedicted to showcasing Donald Duck every day. Since he's my fave Disney character , and the star of my favorite animated Disney flick--The Three Caballeros--I had to do it.

Boneless Fools

Impossible to justify showcasing, but equally so not to like.

(Apparently not all were amused by this, as some complained and forced Whole Foods to make artist Paul Maybury quit.)

Now if only the movie was this cartoony, and Ariel not quite so earnestly annoying. Ah well.

No wonder Woodrow Wilson (the bastard) wanted to fight the Germans. They were taking our wimmen back WW1!

Pyragony by Com Truise

Both the A and B side from the new-ish (and free) single by the electronic synth artist Com Truise (not a typo), a favorite artist of mine to put on in the background and zone out and do work to. So, no qualms about spotlighting him in the off again/ on again new music showcase.

Perhaps some are annoyed at music not made by people in a band with instruments, and while I definitely do favor the former, this is some chill tunes indeed. Check out his website where you can see the above single, his free ep (or conversely, expanded and better sounding priced re-release, which is well worth it I assure you) or his many remixes, many of which are excellent.
