I LOVE this quote. In life I have always tried to follow my heart. I try to be HONEST, speak my REAL feelings. All the artists that inspire me are REAL. Jeff McBride, a real wizard. Ralph Bakshi, his art speaks the honest truth. Rodney Mullen, his skateboarding is genuine and authentic. It's through being vulnerable and sincere that we find things that matter in life.
Dan Hicks / It Happened One Bite / LP / 1978 / Warner Bros. / US // One of the records I picked up at the Rock n' Roll Rescue yesterday. I hadn't heard of Hicks, but the hand-made nature of the cover art and the personable back-cover copy sparked my interest. Apparently, this was recorded as the soundtrack to a Ralph Bakshi film from 1976 (which was scrapped, although it did come out years later with a new soundtrack). Hicks' liner notes provide a series of energetic digressions, weaving all of his songs into a proposed new narrative. The music is folksy Americana with a sense of humour leaning towards the zany, conjuring cartoon images of the 1920s with its borrowing of jazz and scat. Worth a listen if you like idiosyncratic folk ditties!
#Inktober Day 11 – Peace:
Necron 99 sets forth from the miserable land of Scortch to fulfill his #cruel master’s orders of assassinating the fairy president of Montagar, unaware that his destiny is about to be drastically changed for the better.
I can’t remember how old I was when my stepdad shared the 1977 Ralph Bakshi animated movie, Wizards, with me, but I was fascinated and a little shocked that cartoons could contain adult content such as death, swearing, and heavy sexual tones. It also begain my fascination with Post-Apocalyptic stories in which life as we know it no longer exists, but life still I may have been a little younger the average viewer, but I will have appreciated the fact that Tollie introducing me to movies such as this and Heavy Metal, as they strongly influenced the person that I am today.
