Nashville, TN.

It’s concerning that a clown that sad owns and operates a gas station/fireworks emporium. But when you see some of the non-flammable, inflammatory merchandise, maybe Sam is one of the “sad for America” conservatives?

Judging by that first panel, I don’t think the person who wrote this Howard Johnson’s 2001 tie-in comic ever saw 2001. Bonus: sexism! (via dreamsofspace h/t gruber)

"[V]ery unusual"

"This is very unusual and shows really how seriously they’re taking this. To tell a cardinal he can’t do confirmations, can’t do things in public, that’s extraordinary," said the Rev. Thomas Reese, a Jesuit priest and Georgetown University fellow.

An archdiocese spokesman, Tod Tamberg, said that beyond canceling his confirmation schedule, Mahony’s day-to-day life as a retired priest would be largely unchanged. He resides at a North Hollywood parish, and Tamberg said he would remain a “priest in good standing.” He can continue to celebrate Mass and will be eligible to vote for pope until he turns 80 two years from now, Tamberg said.

I don’t think they realize that stripping the power to confirm while daily life remains “largely unchanged” does not seem like a super “serious” response to sexual abuse of children.

LOOPER MOIRE TITLE TESTS

Just ran across these early Looper main title tests that I sent to Rian really early on in the design process. Initially we had talked about wanting the title to be extremely bold and induce a sense of vertigo. The title cuts in right after Joe’s first assassination, and was going to be a powerful moment.

Early on I had the idea of focusing on the two O’s in the title to represent the two Joe’s at different points in time, and when I combined that idea with wanting to induce a sense of overwhelming vertigo, I stumbled across the idea of generating large moire patterns from expanding concentric circles anchored on each O.

In the end, both Rian and I liked the simplest title (which is more or less unchanged from the first draft seen in here), but I just ran across these and thought I’d post ‘em — they were super fun to make.

Marke knocked it out of the park with these.

This new Looper Animation is very, very special.

Zach Johnson (who did these painted posters) has made a gorgeous animation, by hand painting over 700 frames.  The gif above is pulled from it, but you need to see the whole thing.  I want every single one of them on my wall.  Check it out over at Apple Trailers.

This is amazing, like the 1980’s music video version of a trailer.
