i really like this poster, too. i think i really like EVERYTHING aa has ever done. they are brilliant designers. i just wish their stuff didn't always looks somebody else's. is that asking so much? i hope not.
man, i am so sorry you are entering this litle pissing contest. it's sooo beneath you. i wish we were on better terms, but in the past i've said things to you that upset you, so i understand why you feel the need to enter in here - just like bdix and perkins. i'm disappointed in you, as well, just like you are with me. sorry to see it.
ok, you smug little asshole here we go. answer to incredibly intelligent question number 1 (pure innocence, or course): if you had bothered to read my VERY FIRST comment in this thread, you'd fucking see that i plainly state that this piece is extremely reminiscent of the guy who did all the oz stuff in england back in the 60's. i'd go look his name up, but i don't want to bother. and if you weren't such a fucking ignorant clod, you'd realize it, too. his stuff has been reprinted in every book ever written about rock posters (except grushkin's).
answer to question 2: see answer one. yer fucking stupid, that's why.
really, i'm not worth all of this effort you're putting out. i hate to see you get worked up like this. you need to forget about me - move on. get a real life. honest. this isn't worth it. you'll pop a cork and have a stroke and i'll still be around speaking my mind. nothing you can say will change that.
if you actually read what i wrote, i say exactly the same thing. what do you think "the pot calling the kettle black" means?
bdix - well, again, isn't this another person with "round 12" going on? get a life, fella. you waste way too much of your life coming after me. it means nothing and i'm pretty damned unimportant. find something better to waste your time on. honest, get a life.
and to all of the remarks about me, i hold aa to a higher standard to most of you simply becausethey are way better than all of you (you, too, jermaine. sorry). i just want them to prosper , not turn into a tired old hack like yours truly.
so, i'm simply gave them my opinion. i know many of you hate it when anybody gives an opinion (or even a crit) about the work here. but, if i don't do it, nobody will. i'm the only one here with nothing to lose. you can give away every poster of mine in the whole world to byr, and it won't make a difference to me or anybody.
so, my crits have merit simply because i'm actually doing it and you guys are way to chicken to actually voice your opinions here in any sort of way that would attract potential snotty remarks like the stuff you throw at me.
so, read it an weep.
aa - show me what you got if i'm so wrong about you. it would be great to be wrong. but i don't think i am. i've been watching your work for years, and i think you guys are stuck and sinking fast. it's time for that next step. so, use this as a chance to prove me wrong. i think that would be really great.
