I’m back with McFadden this week talking about the latest goings on in politics. Unpaid internships were recently ruled to be a terrible thing, fetuses are apparently masturbating inside their mothers, and the government cares about spying on Facebook activity and not gun purchases. Check it out and we’ll see you next week as Brian and I broadcast from the AAEC convention in Salt Lake City!
I brought back a modest haul from CAKE (where I sold out of the books I brought). New Ted May, some cool stuff from Koyama Press, and Beta-Testing the Apocalypse all look great. There was an overwhelming amount of impressive-looking comics at the show you could come away withI tend to be ultra-conservative with my spending.
Cathy Hannah’s comic includes comics of my comics. This is an autobio comic about a class she taught non-fiction comicsmeta!
Two things from nsfwcorp, which I’ve posted about my comics for before. First, the editor and founder, Paul Carr, has a great piece up on the relationship between Silicon Valley and the NSA. I’ve unlocked it for non-subscribers, which means you can read it through this link for the next 48 hours.
The second thing I can’t entirely reveal yet. But I’ll say that I will be continuing to do work for their print issues for the foreseeable future and now would be a good time to subscribe.
I think what Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, its like when Biggie passed and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z.
I’ve been connected to the most culturally important albums of the past four years, the most influential artists of the past ten years. You have like, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Henry Ford, Howard Hughes, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Anna Wintour, David Stern.
I think thats a responsibility that I have, to push possibilities, to show people: “This is the level that things could be at.” So when you get something that has the name Kanye West on it, it’s supposed to be pushing the furthest possibilities. I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.
- Kanye West, ladies and gentlemen
