9 Reasons Jabba reigns supreme over The Bears
1. He’s soft and squishy, like a bear, but there’s none of the hair to clean out of the shower drain.
2. When you go to "Hutt Week", you don’t need to worry about lodging as his gut is ripe for slumber.
3. Internal C-Pap
4. No one fucks with you because they know that the Lord of the Galactical Underground has got your back. (WHERE THE RANCOR AT?!?!)
5. HUTTr > GROWLr
6. Yeah Burt Reynold’s was an Amazing centerfold model in ‘72, but I don’t hear of any sequels (or prequels for that matter!!!) to “Cannonball Run” coming out soon. #noshade
7. It never rains on Tatooine.

…and so does James Franco. Or so it seems from his choice to make King Cobra, about the rise of porn ingénue Brent Corrigan and the murder that resulted after two wannabe producers tried to get in on the action. The film was bold and graphic, creepy and haunting. Similar to the way Boogie Nights painted a picture of a family cobbled together from different walks of life, King Cobra depicts characters seeking to re-create relationships from their past. In this way it becomes a story of how we are all looking for that perfect relationship, that easy road to stardom, that one true love. It just happens to be set against the backdrop of the titillating world of pornography and topped off with a gruesome murder. Ultimately there are things more important than sex. You just have to cum and get them.
Keep up with my pop cultural musings on my Instagram Story.
Have you ever bought an album just because of the cover art? I have. I remember buying Björk's Post simply for its visual appeal, without ever having heard the music itself. As a trained graphic designer, album covers have always spoken to me in a powerful way. When done right an album cover can be a poetic distillation of a piece of music, a mood, a moment in one's life.
When I began The Album Project, I selected albums from my youth that left a profound imprint on my psyche: Deee-Lite's "World Clique", A Tribe Called Quest's "The Low End Theory", Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit", and Madonna's "Erotica" for starters. The project has since grown and I have been commissioned to interpret album art that has been impactful on others.
My goal is to create enough of a likeness so that the viewer could recognize the album, yet have it also be abstract enough so they could fill in the blanks, akin to how our real memory works. My use of fusible beads affords me the opportunity to abstract an image, to employ abstraction's capability to engage viewers in a manner that is layered, cryptic, and ultimately emotional.
