Found some interesting  analysis of two mass media  obsessions. You can thank the countless hours people spend on 4chan for this.

Turn off the tv idea

Besides taking into account image making style and technique I also take note of themes in work. At my school in the print department it seems like a lot of people enjoy making shamanistic items like deer skulls and bones, old men in general, tools, and basically everything from the 19th century…or ugly 70’s decoration.

But no matter where I go I always see a recurring image. Get ready for it folks because apparently no one can get past the consumer commentary of the 80’s and 90’s that is television. Or more precisely television’s replacing the human head. Analogy tv does our thinking, a good observation. I have no problem with that or whoever initially began the design trend, I haven’t bothered to research the history of tv heads.

What is stupid is that people continue to create this decade spanning archetype and I wonder if they think they are the firsts to do this, or that there aren’t many others doing it as well. Well surprise world its true there are hundreds of people making the same tv heads either standing or slouching alone against a wall. Basically I’m saying cut it out guys. We’re way past this era its 2009 not 1989.

Now in terms of tv developing humans I have no debate. I’m sure tv imagery has changed the way humans process information from pre tv humans to post. People born in the 1800’s and early 1900’s saw tv as a luxury and had radio…a linear thinking process for absorbing information. TV is scattered, multiple, constant, and visual…time follows no line on tv except on tv guide. But this is even more charismatic of people growing up in the 60’s and 70’s. In the 80’s we have more in common with cable tv than an actual tv set because it was the start of wiring people in their homes to a constant electronic source. Maybe we should have cable boxes for stomaches instead or as well.

Point is the tv age has practically peaked…we are in an age of something even less time constraining. Uh, have any of these people heard of youtube? Yes this is the youtube/Hulu whatever streaming era where people watch what they want to watch at anytime at their own discretion. And whats more is people broadcast themselves now too. So for all those bohemian losers inking a tv head drawing stop it. It’s over its done or at least start drawing flat screen tv heads. Oh wait they’re not as cool looking.

WHY HATE ZAPPA!!!

Frank Zappa was a great advocate for musical and general media freedom. That censorship was wrong. And most musicians and music fans I know have favorable views of Zappa. But if you go way back on the youtube comment board for this video there were so many hateful words directed at Zappa. Subscribers said that he looked like some drugged up moron or that he didn’t know where he was. I don’t know if these are people who think the civil rights era was a joke or that libertarians are todays reality? I can’t figure out this mix criticism of Zappa, maybe they just won’t come out and say they hate his music. In any case I think this a great record of consumer freedom versus conservative values. Funny how Neo-Cons support the free market system but can’t take certain products like this.

Steve Rhodes is an Ass

Posted in Comedy, Dick Heads with tags , , , on November 4, 2009 by michaelchernoff

So I was watching television early in the morning with my friends Sanders and Kate and we saw these horrid human beings hunting black bears for sport. Now I don’t mind when people hunt deer because its a population issue that humans are responsible for and they will be eaten. But some douchebags lead by Steve Rhodes hunted Canadian Black Bears for sport, or more specifically a record for taking down the biggest bear possible. These morons practically ejaculate when they see a Bear and then ooh and awe it before they kill it from a thousand yards. Number one there is basic skill in killing a bear that doesn’t even know what a person looks like or that their there. Second its living its life and some guys are just going to take it out for a laugh.

Plus these bears are not dying instantly from a head shot, but from a bullet in the shoulder or stomach and then die in a few minutes. Obviously this bear needs to suffer more in order for the pelt to be undamged. All in all these bears could be tranquilized and some photos taken and the same thing would have been valid. I can’t say if they eat these bears but I know they keep the skin.

I bet these guys just like to Devil Dog the corpse…thats right I said it, DEVIL DOG. 2 of the 3 guys fuck the dead bear in the ass and the throat and the third guy masturbates to the activity. Splendid thats what they do I have a credible source that shall remain unamed.

Steve and his friends have hunted lots of North American species. I wonder of they will get bored and deicide to hunt Yeti instead. For everyone who doesn’t knw what a Yeti is here is an example.

yeti

Now when Steve one kills one of these giant apes, it will make a call to its brethern. Upon that moment 18 Yetis will rise from the snow and murder Steve and his companions, but not until after they are devil dogged Alive. And the Tibetan people will only shake their heads with dismay at this stupid man who killed all mammalian life that he saw.
