Now - 3 Things

A couple of ideas today.
One kind of existential, the other physical.
On the weekend I rewatched on of my favorite recent movies, Shaun of the Dead.
I couldn't help but note the similar build of myself and one of the main characters.
I feel a sense of obligation to myself to point out that the chap in the movie has man boobs where as I have pectorals (I hate it, but I do go to the gym regularly).
Still - it's hardly inspiring.

Style, style, style.
What a thoroughly abused word.
Photoshop and Illlustrator now enable even moderately talented image maker to recreate a classic 50's look.
That is a style.
A style is something every dope can achieve with little effort.
When do you hear the word PERSONALITY???
Surely that's what it should be about!
I could rant on forever but I wont because I'll sound like a wanker.

Loki - god of mischief

I see the likeness.

No you can't.
Be quiet.

Little Rock said...

He's definitly bigger than you.

Little Rock said...

Meaning - You're smaller than him...

Gah.. I can't even compliment coherently

Elliot Cowan said...

LR - I knew what you meant and that's very sweet of you to lie to me.

Girl said...

He appears a tad dumb.
You have glasses. That means you are smart.
No resemblance.

As an aside I wish 'wanker' was used more often in North America. It's just one of those words.

It's Nick Frost! We all know and love him as MIKE though, army lovin' gun totin' Mike, from the insanely wonderful comedy tv show SPACED, also starring Simon Pegg, and also directed by Edgar Wright- just as Shaun of the dead..

Of course I haven't seen you, but I'm not sure there is much of a resemblance.
I just did a drawing of an owl though that reminded me of you..I shall post it on my blog this week

Elliot Cowan said...

An owl you say?
I look forward to it.
I noted you did some time on Asterix a while back.
I loved the comics as a kid but I found them really hard to read.
The pictures were great though!
