The weblog title links to the "No Country Redirect" version, for whatever that might be worth.

Contoured

...posters that are torn away to reveal startling pairings of images, and the photographic imagery wheat-pasted over contoured surfaces, transforming what are supposed to be stately, assuring images of politicians into ghoulish, comical, or Pinnochio-esque caricatures.
Eyeteeth on the photography of Pascal Fellonneau.

Storytime



Featuring Don the Cockroach and the Life of Albert Einstein. (The Christmas card animation is also tacked on at the end.) Gosh. I haven't seen this since my family went to the local cinema to watch Life of Brian, and it was played as one of the shorts (so it was that long ago they still played shorts before the main feature), along with Away From It All, a John Cleese narrated send-up of travelogue flicks, and Spike Milligan's The Case of the Mukkinese Battle Horn. Oh, wait - those two are on Youtube too. The internet really is like an emptied-out attic.

Named

Matt Groening Reveals the Location of the Real Springfield
Pfft. Stop burying the lede.
In my novel, Bart was the son of Homer Simpson. I took that name from a minor character in the novel The Day of the Locust, by Nathanael West.
Hah! Every time I'd tell people about the child-killing* social-phobic lovelorn rube, played by Donald Sutherland in the movie, they'd say, "No, the cartoon dad is named after Groening's father". Hah!!!

I feel so validated.

*Err - warning... ... spoiler.
