Jack as Joker


Satan in Movies

So I just watched Devil's Advocate for the first time in years and A) I enjoyed it much more than I remember doing the first time and B) it got me thinking about the great actors that have played Satan throughout the years. If you can think of others, please let me know. These are my top picks.

Al Pacino in Devil's Advocate. Pacino's brilliant (like usual) in this movie. He's bad but he makes you feel soo good about it. The movie is bad but in a cheesey but terribly entertaining way. I don't know if I want to like it, but I do.

Jack Nicholson in The Witches of Eastwick. He's Satan after a few months of training at the Playboy Mansion. This is another guilty-pleasure type movie: Nicholson co-stars with Cher, Susan Surandon, and Michelle Pfeiffer.

And last but certainly not least, we have Peter Stormare in Constantine. That movie is super shitty but the five minutes at the end with him acting as Satan almost makes it worth it.

"We Owe This To Ourselves"

This is Anberlin's newest song of their album to be released 9/21/10. The song is growing on me, but I'm not totally into the video.

This video, however, is awesome.

Ongina T-Shirts

This is Ongina. She is fabulous and I adore her.

This is Ongina's new t-shirt! They're available next week. $30. Email for orders. XS-XL American Apparel. Autographed! So exciting!

I still love you, though

This is Anberlin's new promo shot and even I'd say there's waayyy too much hair going on here.

One Drawing...

Fellow blogger user, Matt Kish, has come up with a brilliant idea. He's making one drawing for every page of the novel Moby Dick. I love one-a-day type projects and have been trying to come up with one of my own. I think by the end you have a great series and it keeps you in the habit of creating everyday, which I need sometimes. He's up to page 280, working his way up to 552. You can keep up with the rest of the series on his blog or on his website. I picked a few of my favorites to share below- the first few are from the start of the project back in August and the rest are from the last month or so.

Page 002 : But look! here come more crowds, pacing straight for the water, and seemingly bound for a dive.

Page 009 : ...where that tempestuous wind Euroclydon kept up a worse howling than ever it did about poor Paul's tossed craft.
8.5" by 11" / acrylic paint and ballpoint pen on found paper / August 13, 2009

Page 030 : Yes, here were a set of sea-dogs, many of whom without the slightest bashfulness had boarded great whales on the high seas — entire strangers to them — and duelled them dead without winking...
8" by 11" / acrylic paint, colored pencil and ink on found paper / September 5, 2009

Page 263 : Throughout the Pacific, and also in Nantucket, and New Bedford, and Sag Harbor, you will come across lively sketches of whales and whaling-scenes, graven by the fishermen themselves on Sperm Whale-teeth...

Page 270 : For though other species of whales find their food above water, and may be seen by man in the act of feeding, the Spermaceti Whale obtains his whole food in unknown zones below the surface; and only by inference is it that any one can tell of what, precisely, that food consists.

Page 271 : Hemp is a dusky, dark fellow, a sort of Indian; but Manilla is as a golden-haired Circassian to behold.
7.75" by 10.75" / acrylic paint, colored pencil and ink on found paper / June 7, 2010

Page 275 : The waves, too, nodded their indolent crests; and across the wide trance of the sea, east nodded to west, and the sun over all.
12" by 8" / ink, marker and watercolor on watercolor paper / June 11, 2010

Page 279 : At last, gush after gush of clotted red gore, as if it had been the purple lees of red wine, shot into the frighted air; and falling back again, ran dripping down his motionless flanks into the sea. His heart had burst!

I heart camping

Planning a weekend getaway... no, not to Ocean City.

Your Love is My Drug

I'm torn between loving and hating this music video.
