A librarian collects all the things left in books

quote [ "I just kind of giggled to myself," Longacre said, when she realized the note was her own. She reached out to McKellar to claim it. ]

Is corecore radical art or gibberish shitposts?

quote [ The longer ?philosophical? corecore videos may spark twinges of joy or gloom, but they don?t make me want to do anything beyond continue my endless scroll. They bore me, even. ]

What the? it's nice to see digital subculture analysis being taken on so we don't need to sift through the stuff. The whole blog is interesting, with bringing up dadaism and sorts.

Pluralistic: 2023?s public domain is a banger

quote [ 40 years ago, giant entertainment companies embarked on a slow-moving act of arson. The fuel for this arson was copyright term extension (making copyrights last longer), including retrospective copyright term extensions that took works out of the public domain and put them back into copyright for decades. Vast swathes of culture became off-limits, pseudo-property with absentee landlords, with much of it crumbling into dust. ]

Finally! Almost time to publish my Sherlock Holmes as a Juggalo series.

quote [ Archived amid Prokudin-Gorsky?s vast photographic survey of the Russian Empire, we find images shot through with starshatter cracks, blebbed with mildew, and blurred by motion.

Following plagiarism allegations: Jeff Dieschburg wins case in 1st instance against Jingna Zhang

quote [ US-based photographer Jingna Zhang sued the Luxembourgish artist, alleging that he had plagiarised one of her photographs.

According to the newspaper Luxemburger Wort, judges at the Luxembourgish court found that the original photograph did not meet the criteria to fall under Luxembourgish or European copyright law.

The photographer's lawyer told Wort that Zhang is 99% certain to appeal the decision. She must also pay legal fees after losing in court. ]

This Jeff dude from Luxemburg won an art contest for the painting in the thumbnail (left), but he did not disclose that he copied/mirrored it from Jingna Zhang's photo (right).

It's not the only instance. Other artists have their art also stolen as well by Jeff.

If it's been posted before, I couldn't find it. Here's a compilation video and an old interview.

Heck by Zander Cannon

quote [ "Heck is one of the most interesting and soul-plumbing graphic novels of 2013... an emotional roller-coaster. It leaves the reader with the distinct impression of having been on our own harrowing journey into the darkest aspects of ourselves, into the things we hardly dare admit." -- Bleeding Cool ]

Going to hell to find ?yeah what exactly? Bizarre and gloomy and unexpectedly warm.

Interview: Dan Abnett and INJ Culbard (Brink, 2000 AD)

quote [ True Detective was a useful shorthand, as was Outland:Outland for the lo-fi reality we were trying to achieve, True Detective for the sense of dropping right in without heavy exposition and just unfolding as we went, through tight, uncompromised character and dialogue. Our idea was to try and make the setting ?real? (despite its obvious SF unreality) and then thread in a disturbing sense of something other. ]

Great comic with great leads and many bizarre turn of events. I'd call it psychedelic noir or something.

Proust?s Pinks

quote [ For vast stretches of la recherche du temps perdu, there is scarcely a page unadorned by vibrant colour. To commemorate the centenary of Marcel Proust?s death, Christopher Prendergast celebrates his use of pink, how its tone shifts from innocence to themes of sexual need, before finally fading out to grey at the novel?s close. ]

each visit to the page deteriorates the main image

quote [ Every 400 visitors a reset button appears on the bottom, which can be used to restore the image back to its original quality. ]

JPEGs are lossy, resaving the image for each visitor increases the glitch. (thumb is after visitor count 19711)
