I spend a lot more time on my Tumblr blog than this site, but I feel guilty not giving this blog any love (especially now that it is actually jesusgaray.com). That being said, I’m selling out and putting up some of the likes I’ve clicked on this week [NOTE: I will always put the source for any of these posts, as I don’t want to be one of those douchebags who put up art/writing playing it off like…
Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
As a guy who suffers from a seizure disorder, I cannot stress these tips enough
Friggin’ motivational speaker/therapeutic Jesus Garay had that shit since 02. Finally dropped it.
(Now, back to posting on the bastard…)
First look at Andre 3000 (he’ll never be Andre Benjamin for me) as Jimi Hendrix in the upcoming All Is By My Side biopic. I’ll admit, 3 Stacks got the voice down right
Russian Roulette: The Invasion of Ukraine (Dispatch Two)
Falling in fucking love with these Vice News dispatches.
Ladytron - “Light & Magic”
I used the song as the idea for an urban fantasy short story I should clean up. I came up with it waaay before reading Phonogram.
Metric- “Dead Disco”
I’ve always wanted some indie rapper to take the chorus and fuck around with it like this:
"Dead hip hop, dead funk, dead R&B…"
…and the rest. I’d do it, if I could rap at all, but I spit bars like a baby after eating a jar of Gerber’s.
Lupe Fiasco - “Little Weapon” (Feat. Biship G and Nikki Jean)
Man, I miss this version of Lupe. In my opinion he dropped off hard after The Cool (forreal, every time I hear that dumb song that samples “Float On” makes me want to punch things). Funny note: this song is produced by Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump (you can hear him wail in the background of this song)
Little Dragon killing the game as always, so excited to hear their new album
Yesssss. The song makes me more impatient for the album in May
Comic Book Resources - PREVIEW: Moon Knight #1 - Marc Spector is Moon Knight!…Or is he? Itâs hard to tell these days, especially when New Yorkâs wildest vigilante protects the street with two-fisted justice and threeâthatâs right, count âemâdifferent personalities! But even with the mystical force of Khonshu fueling his crusade, how does the nightâs greatest detective save a city thatâs as twisted as he is? The road to victory is going to hurt. A lot. Marvelâs most mind-bending adventure begins NOW as Moon Knight sleuths his way to the rotten core of New Yorkâs most bizarre mysteries!
A Warren Ellis procedural? Fuck yeah, count me in. I also love this Adi Granov cover.
At The Farmhouse Sunday January 26, 6pm – 9pm @farmhouse ____ DESCRIPTION: In the intimate surroundings of The Farmhouse Barn, writer Warren Ellis sits down for a State Of The Weird, picking over the radioactive bones of 2013 and gathering the stories for a Briefing on the science-fiction condition of 2014. That night, he will be in the middle of writing a novella about futurists and a non-fiction book about the future of cities — except that they’re both also about strange history and Weird Shit — and he’s here to talk about deep time, storytelling and the weather of tomorrow. BIO:: Warren Ellis is the award-winning writer of graphic novels like TRANSMETROPOLITAN, FELL, MINISTRY OF SPACE and PLANETARY, and the author of the New York Times bestselling GUN MACHINE and the “underground classic” novel CROOKED LITTLE VEIN. The movie RED is based on his graphic novel of the same name, its sequel having been released in summer 2013. His GRAVEL books are in development for film at Legendary Pictures, with Tim Miller attached to direct. IRON MAN 3 is based on his Marvel Comics graphic novel IRON MAN: EXTREMIS. He’s also written extensively for VICE, WIRED UK and Reuters on technological and cultural matters, and is co-writing a video project called WASTELANDERS with Joss Whedon. Warren Ellis is currently working on a non-fiction book about the future of the city for Farrar Giroux Straus. His newest publication is the digital short-story single DEAD PIG COLLECTOR, from FSG Originals. A documentary about his work, CAPTURED GHOSTS, was released in 2012. Recognitions include the NUIG Literary and Debating Society’s President’s Medal for service to freedom of speech, the EAGLE AWARDS Roll Of Honour for lifetime achievement in the field of comics & graphic novels, the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire 2010, the Sidewise Award for Alternate History and the International Horror Guild Award for illustrated narrative.

Such a huge Warren Ellis fanboy. This presentation on spirit trails, smart cities, and the increasing banality of the future is amazing and inspiring.

Show hit all my Luther/Silence of the Lambs/Hannibal buttons. McConaughey and Harrelson are standout.
Phantogram - “Fall In Love”
Rob and I heard this song live at a show in December. Boy, Sarah Barthel can sing. I’m waiting for when this song is used in TV shows/commercials like ‘When I’m Small”.
Harold Ramis was one of Hollywood’s most successful comedy filmmakers when he moved his family from Los Angeles back to the Chicago area in 1996. His career was still thriving, with “Groundhog Day” acquiring almost instant classic status upon its 1993 release and 1984’s “Ghostbusters” ranking among the highest-grossing comedies of all time, but the writer-director wanted to return to the city where he’d launched his career as a Second City performer.
There goes any chance of that Ghostbusters 3. Also, GODDAMNIT!
