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.

FLESH + BLOOD mini-review (Rutger Hauer, Verhoeven)

I'm trying out a new format for talking about movies.

It's a work in progress. I actually want to do more illustration and the sketch of Jennifer Jason Leigh doesn't do her any justice. Once I turned on this movie, I wanted to look into Susan Tyrrell as she always plays highly-interesting broken characters. I plan to rewatch her in Angel (1984) sometime soon.
She has a great quote on IMDB:
I'm a loner. I don't like beautiful people, but I find beauty in the grotesque. And in the sweet soul inside someone who has been able to get through their life without being a rat's ass. I love all the connections that I listed up here. Hauer is one of my absolute favorite actors and I can't believe I waited so long to see him in this. Or maybe I saw the casting and ran far away, cuz this is some bizarre casting!

Verhoeven is a very interesting director as in he's not afraid to do things differently. He apparently experimented while making this film and wasn't ha…

Manga treasures - super rare KoroKoro comic reprint

My good friend Mr. Fujita passed on one of his treasures to my mentor Mr. Hashimoto BUT FIRST he allowed me to share some photos and a quick flip through with you, loyal readers. 

In this box is a tiny reprint (a minibon) of the first issue of weekly anthology magazine CoroCoro comics (5/15/1975, featuring Doraemon) which was given away to only the people who attended the editor’s end of year party in what I assume was 2005 as it says 30th anniversary on the box and inside. 

I love the mini-bon format and I was sorely tempted to buy the set of Tezuka mini-bon that were sold once. But they’re not the best for research or for reading when your eyesight starts to go like mine has. In the poorly filmed flip-through below, you can see some early Doraemon, a few other series, and some color inserts related to Sadaharu Oh, a Japanese-born Chinese baseball legend who played on the Yomiuri Giants team and holds the world lifetime home run record of 868 home runs.

A bit of trivia about Diraemo…

Now THIS is a superhero team

What if the Avengers were a Super Sentai team?
Presenting The Averangers!

They're pretty okay...
