The Mighty Boosh

I'm hooked on this BBC4 show called The Mighty Boosh.
My friend S-ko let me borrow her DVDs and I became an instant convert to the the Church of Boosh.

Check out this scene where the Boosh become hippies.

"Yeti Magic"
Parsley:Follow me.
Forget the world.
Look around at the wonders of nature.
Never fear everything is here,
And you don't need your friends or family...
We're your family.
Come with me and then you will see everything you need within life.
Hey, ho! It's easy letting go,When nothing before was real.
Look into our eyes, you can see the future.
Look into our eyes, we can see your soul.
We will be together...Everything is good here.

Vince: He's gone wrong!
Naboo: I know! He's in a trance! It's all part of the ritual.
It's what they do before they breed with ya.
Vince: What's Bollo doing?
Naboo: Oh, he's gone too!
Listen, Vince. This is yeti magic. Don't listen to the hippie nonsense.
You're a punk. Stay punk. Think of Johnny Thunders. Mick and Keith. Block it out.
Vince: Okay. What about you?
Naboo: Don't worry about me. I'm a shaman. My mind's like a fortress.

Naboo: Listen to your heart. Everything is good here.
Bollo: Nothing before was real.
Parsley: Never fear, everything is here.
Bollo: And you don't need your friends...
Parsley: Or family...
Vince: Parsley:
Listen to your heart. Hey, ho!
Everything is good here. It's easy letting go.
We are family!
Bollo: We are family!
Vince: Look into our eyes, you can see the future.
Parsley: Look into our eyes, we can see your soul.
Everyone: Hey, ho! It's easy letting go,
When nothing before was real.
Listen to your heart. Everything is good here.
Nothing before was real.
Listen to your heart. Everything is good here.
Listen to your heart. Everything is good...

Ahh. Good stuff. Crazy days. Reminds me of the time... Oh that's a different story.

Tokyo Akahon Manga “Gulliver’s Travels” by NAKAMURA Hiroshi

According to a post by akahon manga researcher Yuuzora Retro (pen name), the Tokyo-based publisher Taikōdō ( 泰光堂 ) created their Manga Classics series in response to the PTA backlash against manga contributing to delinquency in Osaka. This is Gulliver’s Travels by NAKAMURA Hiroshi (中村ひろし), a B6-sized 3-color akahon* printed with red ink fills on either blue or green lines costing 85 yen. NAKAMURA seemed to be the main artist for Taikōdō as evinced by the ad pages at the back. There is no publishing date, but it probably wasn't too far from 1951 when "Cinderella" and "Snow White" from the same series were published. Looking at the stamps on the endpapers on the back, we can see that this particular book was rented out at a kashihon-ya (rental comic shop) in Saga, Kyushu called Imazato Neo Shobō. It was lent to me by a Mr. Fujita, a collector heavy into Showa-era items. I will continue to introduce the books I was able to borrow from his

Karate Kid, IF "Similar" and SCBWI Tokyo Art Show

The Karate Kid changed my life. The movie, of course. Not the Legion of Superheroes comic character. I'm watching it right now as I type this blog and I was thinking about how many of my perceptions about karate were shaped by Mr. Miyagi. I was never big on "sports" movies, I never saw Rocky. But I knew what it was like to be the little guy. The new kid on the block. And I knew what it was like going up against an institutionalized system of separating the "winners" from the "losers". Luckily, I had friends in and out of school that liked me for who I was and not for who I desperately thought I wanted to be. It took me a little while and Karate Kid 2 to realize what I did want. The summer that KK2 was the summer where I decided to take control of my life and stopped worrying about what the @$$holes thought. It wasn't even a gradual thing. Once I had made that decision, suddenly things started changing around me. I had confidence and that made it ea

Ninjas vs Cowboys, Top 10 Cowboy Manga

I talk about US ninja comics and Japanese cowboy comics on Tim Young's Deconstructing Comics . Listen to it here ! I based on the lecture I gave last year at the Koshi Manga Museum . First slide from my Ninjas vs Cowboys presentation. Here are my Top 10 Cowboy Manga: 10. Bullet Tommy  『弾丸トミー』by Shige SUGIURA This is a classic, one of the earliest comics. It's a "gag manga" for kids and so pokes fun at the various Western movie tropes. The art resembles Shoney's Big Boy, doesn't it? 9.  The Cactus Kid  『サボテン君』by Osamu TEZUKA This is one of Tezuka's early Western manga when he had only seen a few westerns at the time. I like the idea of a guy who wants to turn his parents' saloon into a milk bar. 8. The Belle Starr Gang  『ベル☆スタア強盗団』by Akihiro ITO Ito is known for his Geobreeders  saga, but this is his take on the real-life outlaw Belle Starr and her gang. I like the art and the attempt to incorporate real-life events into the
