Vinnie Barbarino as Kylo Ren

Vinnie Barbarino as Kylo Ren

Spoilers galore, Star Wars The Force Awakens review:

A good bad guy is what makes a movie great. Some of the best are, the Wicked Witch of the West, Colonel Kurtz, Hannibal Lecter, Frank from Blue Velvet, and Darth Vader to name a few. My biggest leap with the latest Star Wars movie was the Sith Lord guy. He was even weaker than Darth Maul who didn’t put up much of a fight either. I left the movie not remembering his name, having to search for Kylo Ren on Google. First up, he looked like Vinnie Barbarino, and I had a hard time not imagining him in a black leather Sweat Hogs coat, which was very distracting. He wasn’t bad ass enough, and this is why: When brought bad news, he destroys his own ship in an embarrassing tantrum instead of slaying the messenger. I think the Resistance should have considered planting a bad news messenger to constantly bring him bad news and have the Great Sith Lord Barbarino destroy the ship for them. “I am sorry sir, the droid got away again…” Smash – Crash – Bang – Boom… plus who would wear such a stupid mask if it was not a life support system? Insecure much? All image, no substance. Bad bad guy. Bad!

Also, J.J., good buddy,  a longer mourning period for Han Solo. I want to see Chewbacca more upset, or a quick Wookie death rite with Chewy burying or burning some personal item… not just happy and horny to fly off with Rey… (although I can understand his excitement), the viewers needed more time to feel the loss of Solo, the most interesting human of the entire franchise. Give us time to cry… the pacing seemed off there.

Thanks Disney for the new Star Wars The Force Awakens movie. I had fun, and I want to see it again and again, already.

I believe it is the artist’s role to shake things up. Not paint pretty pictures, but make you think. Questions are better than answers. My favorite medium is your mind.

Born Against : Hardcore Christian Folk Music

Born Against

I wish there was a sect of Christianity that was more about the man than the myth. I dig Jesus in a big way, but I don’t believe in any of the malarkey. That’s right, I think the man’s words of love, peace, and forgiveness is enough. I don’t need an Immaculate Conception, Resurrection, Harrowing of Hell, or Ascension to hear the truth in what the man taught during his life time.

After attending a Tenacious D concert, on the drive home I got to wondering what the D would be like if they were to become Born Again. I imagined them writing songs about their love for Jesus, but still cussing a lot. I thought it would be funny to write a few songs, but then more and more ideas continued to hit me and I wrote a lot more songs than I ever intended. The Born Against project started to take over my mind and situations would make me think, I have to go write a song about that.

I have always enjoyed using my sense of humor when writing songs. I like playful mischief when I make art or write. My previous solo music project was My Friends Are All Jerks, which were songs where I make fun of my closest friends. It’s funny to write songs just to bug my friends. It’s the concept that cracks me up most. Once I get a concept in my head, the rest just pours forth ready or not.

Born Against is not anti-Christian, in fact it’s Hardcore Christian. The voice is something like, ‘I fuckin’ love the Lord Jesus!’, kind of lyrics. The gritty cussin’ lyrics combined with a strong faith in the Lord shocks my ears every time I hear it, and then it cracks me up because it’s so weird to hear those attitudes together. If this sort of thing offends you, don’t worry. God has a wicked sense of humor.

Traffic Report

evilBay Traffic Report

After returning state side from a trip to the Philippines I didn’t have much of an art studio set up. I started to sit outside drawing in my journal and thinking about stuff.

I thought it would be fun to pair up my drawings with mp3 recordings of my voice, so people could hear what I’m thinking when I draw these drawings.

The cars on a busy road just beyond the wall in my back yard creates an interesting audio backdrop.

Art + artist commentary + car sounds = the evilBay Traffic Report. Think of this as stand up comedy without all the funny stuff distracting you.

TOJM – the dream

Good luck from my TOJM
Holding my TOJM.

I was young, and I had an odd dream. I was running through barricades, barbed wire, and war torn territories. Among a pile of rubble I found a small object. When I picked it up, I knew it was a TOJM, a good luck piece. In fact, I already knew that finding the TOJM guaranteed my success in what ever I endeavored into. It was as if I had always known about it, and now I had one. Holding it in my hand I remember running up and over piles of rubble, down long corridors trying to escape the battles behind, and find a safe place somewhere beyond. The TOJM gave me a mental security with it’s magical protection. Holding the TOJM, running toward the sun, toward the trees, away from the rubble, smoke, and debris. It’s nearly 40 years later, and I still have my TOJM. Here it is, still working wonders after all these years.
