kingrockwell: he's a sexy (Death of the Endless)
[personal profile] kingrockwell posting in [community profile] scans_daily
So, I started a Twitter recently to hash out my feelings on my comics each week, and one of the creators I ended up following is Kieron Gillen, who you may know for taking over the reigns from JMS on Thor, or writing the absolutely delightful and unfortunately to-be-cancelled S.W.O.R.D. Anyway, he'd been talking about his Image mini-series Phonogram: The Singles Club, which ended this week, so I decided to give issue 7 a shot.

I'm sharing with you today the last story, because they warmed my Talking Heads-loving heart.


I've since gone back to the shop to get the rest of the mini. Didn't hurt they had Image back-issues half-off, but they were missing #6, too. I may deem it necessary to share more, but I'll have to read them first!

But I did think I should share the back cover.

how can you not love this?
Look for the series with the devilishly hip covers. I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.

Also, while we're talking about music, I just wanted to share a final reminder to anyone hoping to participate in the Scans_Daily Boom De Yada Project, you have until midnight EST on Sunday to record your submissions! I actually have almost all the verse-lines I need, but there were still a few people who wanted to contribute that I haven't heard back from yet!
I do have a dire shortage of laaaand-liiiieefeelds recorded though, so if anyone can spare a few minutes and help me with those, I'd really appreciate it.

So if you're interested and want to chip in, go check this post to see how you can help!
And remember, midnight tomorrow!

You know what's twice as awesome? Kermit the Frog performing the song for Muppets Tonite.

What's even better is I saw this when it was first broadcast in Britain. Hence, I get a lovely warm feeling of being a kid again whenever I watch it.

I've recently been complaining in the comments on Major about how inane the two most recent Muppet movies have been compared to absolute gems like Muppets Tonite. A measure of hope has been reclaimed in that YouTube account of theirs, but I seriously don't want to see another twisted Kirk Thatcher creation ever again.

You seriously CANNOT go wrong with classic Muppets, and I DO include Muppets Tonight in that (Strangely, many don't)

One of my personal guaranteed pick-me-ups

That was the first place I ever saw that song.

I've never managed to like the original nearly as much.

Yeah, I'd heard the original dozens of times before, but never actually registered the lyrics or their meaning clearly in my head. But then again, I was six.

Part of the reason I don't want to read Phonogram is the fact that I knew someone called Jamie McKelvie in school, and I don't want to think "that guy is making comics for money and I'm not", even though it isn't the same Jamie McKelvie.

That's not a very good reason, is it?

I got the first trade a couple of weeks back and I've been tracking down the latest series. The news that there will likely not be a Phonogram 3 makes me so very sad. :(

I'm in the same boat. Waiting for my first trade to come in, and if I can't find the single issues of Single's Club I'll just wait for the trade. But the fact that I may not be able to get any more than that makes my heart hurt.

If you only get the trade, you miss out on the b-sides, which are very good

I know! But I can't find the issues. So I'm hoping the B-sides are all eventually collected (because I'm thinking positively. There will be more volumes and therefore enough B-sides for its own trade).

I adore that song and always will, although I'm embarrassed to admit I never made the Enola Gay connection. Damn, now I have to watch Stop Making Sense again, don't I?

And you may ask yourself,
Why such a large suit?
And you may ask yourself,
Maybe I could have it taken in a little?

That's a pretty awesome back cover, I'll give you that. The only thing thing that tarnishes it somewhat for me is the thought of how I would react if he actually WERE talking to me:

"Uh, well, I had planned on..."
"No, you hadn't!"
"But I was going to..."
"No, you weren't!"
"Club night! You are coming to a club night!"
"Why would I do that? I hate..."
"ShutupshutupshutUP! Club night! OUR club night! You are coming! There are only three ru..."
"But WHY? I hate clubs, I hate dancing, and I hate loud music! I don't WANT to go to a..."

They're the NIGHTMARE SIDEWALK RECRUITERS! They take you to their club night and you're NEVER SEEN AGAIN! They're training the Girl Scouts to do their dirty work! Run! Run, I say!

Sorry chump - we were more about the building of structures to climb out of logs than the baking. For fifty bucks I can give you some rope and a neckerchief with a felt oak leaf badly sewn on?
