End of the Rope, Alien Resurrection, Gonzo and Doodle Bugs

Good god I keep neglecting my duties as a blogger. I've been taking weekends off to catch up on art and stuffs and thru the week I've been busy as well so by the time I think about it it's pretty late. Anyway I'll get on with it.

This weekend I went to my friends bands show. They are called "End of the Rope" and they fucking rocked. It's the first time they played a show in about 8 months since they were in the studio working on their new album and other shiz. It was great to see them play again and just get out of the house since I haven't really done that in awhile either. If you like heavy music go check out their myspace page http://www.myspace.com/etr

Today's movie was a how to tattoo DVD. I'm wanting to get into tatting so I'm trying to absorb all the knowledge I can. but the real movie I watched this weekend was Alien Resurrection 1997 written by the brilliant Joss Whedon and directed by the genius Jean-Pierre Jeunet who also directed 2 of my fav movies "City of Lost Children" and "Delicatessen". I love this movie. Actually I love the whole series but that's a different story. The cast was great including Ron Perlman and Brad Dourif, 2 of my favs. A great story and lots of good gore and action and suspense. I would have to say this one and part 2 are my favs of them. Get it, get it good and enjoy a visual thrashing of awesomeness.

Today's action figure is not a monster figure but he is still just plain awesome in my opinion. He's the one the only "Gonzo" from the Muppet Show. My favorite muppet by a landslide. He's just so damn crazy. If I was a muppet I would be gonzo or Grover from Sesame street. Something about those muppets that start with G get my fancy. He's a serious pimp in this purple suit as well. Where are all his chicken heads? He was made by a company called ha! Inc. in 1978 in Hong Kong of course. I display him proudly like the treasure he is. Gonzo rules. Don't try to argue.

My doodle madness for your visual experience is another creature doodle page. I told you I had quite a bit of these. Let me know which ones are your favorites.

I'm kinda tired and need to get some coffee so I will bid you adieu my fellow comrades.
until later on today. enjoy

I used to have this Gonzo figure and the Animal figure from this same series- they are long since gone of course, but you are right they are cool!! I got one of the more recent Crazy Harry figures- he sits next to me here at work on top of my PC harddrive, holding his dynamite and preparing to push the plunger on his explosives box.

Love the sketch today- great stuff!!
