Debris 02.24.11

(Original blog post Feb 24, 2011 – 866 views)

At Mother’s restaurant in New Orleans, they have what they call “debris,” which is the bits of beef that fall off into the gravy as it roasts. They save all this debris and use it as a menu item, which you can get with grits, or slathered on your Ferdi Special po’ boy, or whatever. So, inspired by food as I often tend to be, all the random stuff I wanna talk about is getting slopped together into one post. Here, then, is Krushervision’s debris for this week.

Hope you’re liking the new website! I’ve had a pretty good response to it so far. Enjoying blogging and making more cartoons.

I’m happy that it seems to work well on mobile devices.

Got a few projects in the works for some heavy-hitters of burlesque. Really enthused about who I’ve been working with lately. I try not to talk too much about anything before it’s done, though.

What in the blue hell am I doing now? One of my clients sure likes to keep me on my toes.

Speaking of burlesque, I booked our room for the Burlesque Hall of Fame weekend in Vegas this June. Always excited to go and see friends, meet new ones, and see tons of great burly-q. Expecting to be vending art prints and stuff again this year, so stop by the Krushervision booth and say hello!

Just finishing up the last LP of West Coast Seattle Boy: The Jimi Hendrix Anthology. I got the vinyl box set version about a month ago, and it’s taken me this long to work my way through it. It’s fantastic. It goes all the way back to before he made a name for himself, and the first three sides are singles from the likes of Little Richard, The Isley Brothers, and a few other artists, when Jimi was just a guitar sideman. But you can totally hear in his playing that he’s dying to cut loose and let ’em have it. The rest of the set spans his entire career, with lots of outtakes and alternate versions and stuff I’ve never heard. It’s mind-boggling how much he recorded in his short career, that they’re still putting out unreleased stuff 40 years after his death.

The vinyl package itself is beautifullly presented, with 8 albums in individual picture sleeves, as well as a full-color book with extensive liner notes on each track, all housed in a lidded box, similar to the Jimi Hendrix Experience box released in 2000, which I also have. The only disappointment is that the vinyl edition doesn’t have the “Voodoo Child” documentary on DVD, narrated by Bootsy Collins as the voice of Jimi, which the CD version includes.

Anyway, after I splurged on that set, I promised I wouldn’t go to a record store for another month. Got four more days on that.

How about your music? Are you a downloader? Still buy CDs? Or do you have a vinyl fetish too?

Also recently finished playing through Bayonetta on the 360. I’m a couple years late getting to that particular party, but I don’t have the time to keep up with new games as much as I would like. Loved the game, though.

Completely over-the-top action, sets, bosses, story, ending — everything about it is absolutely ridiculous. And fine quality, as you would expect from Platinum Games, the studio that used to be Clover. I’ll buy just about anything of theirs.

The main character design doesn’t hurt either.

A final note — it’s that time of year when weekends are starting to book up solid in advance at Oshkosh Tattoo, so if you’re looking to get tattooed, make sure you call ahead (920-230-6611) and secure yourself a spot!
