pim & francie comic strip art book. bizarre, disturbing and wonderful.

Posted by Jay Ju on Nov 23, 2009 in My Words

i checked out the “pim and francie” hardcover art book at barnes and noble. i want to add this to my art book collection. the drawings are just beautiful and the black and white line work is skillful.

it looks pretty innocent on the cover but inside it has some strange subject matter, nothing perverse, but very weird. which is probably why it stood out to me.

the old school cartoon style envokes memories of classic Disney and cartoon strips from our childhood and even more so from our parent’s childhood. but take those dreamlike images and twist it into a LSD nightmare. and i mean that as a compliment.

zombies. dismembered body parts. but i was really disturbed by a smiley faced guy that dices pim on a kitchen cutting board and dropping francie in a meat grinder, labeled kiddie grinder. uuuh crazy.

the only thing i wish the book had was some narrative or something to explain the strange images.

but the artwork is beautiful and original. definitely something i would want on my bookshelf.

mark on st. marks place! $2 slider burgers $4 beer! tastes great!

Posted by Jay Ju on Nov 21, 2009 in My Words

just tried the newly opened “mark” on st. marks place. i was craving a burger but i had yet to find any burgers worth mentioning in my area.

i tried “paul’s burger place”, also on st. marks, which boasts to be the best burger in ny. -LIES! it was a sloppy tasteless mess.

anyway, i had been passing by mark for a few weeks now since it opened in october, but it didn’t look like anything special.
finally, i decided to give it a try since I tend to like sliders cause they’re so bite sized and easy to eat. and for 2 bucks a pop, it was worth a try! they also had hoegarden on tap and a few other decent beers for only $4! it wasn’t even happy hour!

anyway, i had two sliders, fries and a malted milkshake. all really good!

only one month old but i know this place is going to be super popular. there’s so much crap on st marks that it’s easy to walk by this place and not notice it, but when you have quality tasting food at fair prices, it’s a no brainer. people will find out and come!

i just hope they keep the prices as they are. i’m definitely gonna be a regular here.

mark is located on 33 st. marks place between 2nd and 3rd ave. just look for the statue of a white bull.

i forgot to take pictures cause when the food came i just dived right in. i’ll take some next time!

cold rain sucks

Posted by Jay Ju on Nov 19, 2009 in My Words

it’s raining today even though all week the weather report said it was going to be clear today.

after living in rainless LA for eight years i don’t mind a little rain but what i do mind is “cold” rain.

in the summer, when it’s hot and humid it’s kind of fun and refreshing, just wearing a t shirt and shorts and walking or running through the rain without an umbrella. weeeeee!

but with cold rain you’re already cold, so you’re wearing more clothes, which leaves you wet, uncomfortable and still cold.

i’d rather it just snow already. at least it’s pretty.


testing out my blogging app for my iphone

Posted by Jay Ju on Nov 18, 2009 in My Words

just downloaded a blogging app for my iPhone. this should make it easier to make blog posts. kind of like how it’s so easy to update facebook or twitter. (not that i twitter, between blogging and facebook, there’s only so much narcissism one person is allowed before becoming a total douche).

but blogging on my computer got to be such a chore. old school. god, I love new technology!

american wonderland film preview by jay ju

Posted by Jay Ju on Nov 1, 2009 in My Film/Vid, My Words

the indie crime drama/feature film i wrote, produced and shot in two weeks in LA, on a shoe-string budget, robert rodriguez style, no professional crew, and unknown cast. this is not the official trailer, was cut mostly for friends and the cast to see all the work we did.
