i admit it and discuss it and ultimately reject my own work. i'm not trying to trick anybody. and what i choose to take is altered and adapted and editorially chosen "approriately" as in 'appropriation'. it's a process of discovery which this only remains as an artifact.
do you even understand anything that i'm trying to point out here, jermaine? do youy? don't you get a little annoyed at all the fraud and lies and crap being tossed around this site while eveybody ignorantly goes "good work, mate" and "wow, that is sooo cool, dude"? sometimes i look at this site and start laughing.
thanks for the offer of help in my exciting new career path, but i'll just take it off the site here. it's good enough for this stuff. hell, most of this stuff is so vague that i can steal it real easy and nobody will ever know the difference.
damn, i'm gonna be soooo rich and famous and american! damn!
i think i just figured out how to be taken seriously on this site! from now on i'm going to just take your posters and change them into my posters! i'll start with the greta garbo poster and turn it into, say, a king of hawaii poster! brilliant! and then i'll take that vrigil findlay image and turn it into a jerry lee lewis poster! great! and then i'll take that richie goodtimes poster and turn it into a soundgarden poster! damn, i'm onto something here!
i think i'll jump right into the bigtime and take that famous kiozik soundgarden poster and turn it into a ROLLING STONES POSTER!!!!! damn, think of all the money money money i could make!!! and i'll be doing great posters! i'll be famous and rich and american too!!! jeez, look out gigposters, here i come!!
here's another good example of pointless ripping. this is a VERY famous photo of greta garbo. so why use it? it's the only thing going on. is it for some editorial comment or some abstract humor purpose? no, it's just a photo that's looks cool. never mind it's one of the most famous movie star photos of all time. are we supposed to think the poster 'artist' took the photo? are we supposed to be impressed with the poster 'srtist's' excellent taste in photos to steal? are we supposed to 'vant to be alone'?
kills me. i'll bet he didn't even know who it was. ignorant crap.
sometimes i'm shocked by what people stupidly steal for their images. i've spent my entire creative life skirting the edges of copyright infringement, always staying one step of ahead of what's legal and not legal. then i see people steal famous images like this and act like it's a great piece (at leats good enough to post up here for all the world). kills me. i wonder what terry jones would say? what would diane arbus say about that poster we were commenting on earlier today? i dunno. i chose to draw the line at the point where i'm abusing someone else's creative rights, and this plows right over them. uncool.
i'd be great to think i had some sort of spiritual right to do posters for the 3B, but it ain't true. i haven't done any for him in years. even in the old days, he only would have me do posters irregularly. in fact, i'm not doing as much for crider these days either. times are tough in the record biz, and estrus is feeling it along with everybody else. however, i do think it's a shame that the premier label of garage rock isn't able to cash in on the current 'garage rock'' scene that's selling all the records and getting all the critical raves. it's almost like the label never existed. too bad (for all of us).
i talked to aaron acouple of weeks ago. so, you go tell him how he was telling me that he wanted to have you do some printing with blt, ok? catch him on his little fib...
nobody will hire me out here. i'm still doing stuff for seattle people who wouldn't hire me when i lived there (i guess i'm 'famous' enough noe that the book has come out). i'm covering rent selling my old posters on ebay. go figger. i actually hit on aaron for some poster work and we ended up talking about how to get you to do some color silscreen work with brian down at blt. aaron was hot on the idea. go for it!
