rip

my art computer died.

I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly…

I sent a message to another time
But as the days unwind, this I just cant believe
I sent a note across another plane
Maybe its all a game, but this I just cant conceive.

Can you hear me?

I drive the very latest hovercar
I dont know where you are
But I miss you so much till then
I met someone who looks a lot like you
She does the things you do
But she is an ibm.

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly…

Shes only programmed to be very nice
But shes as cold as ice
Whenever I get too near
She tells me that she likes me very much
But when I try to touch
She makes it all too clear.

She is the latest in technology
Almost mythology
But she has a heart stone
She has an i.q. of 1001
She has a jumpsuit on
And shes also a telephone.

2095, 2095, 2095, 2095
I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly…

Chorus:
Is that what you want? (is it what you want? )
Is it what you really want? (is it what you really want? )
Is that what you want? (is it what you want? )
Is it what you really want?

I realize that it must seem so strange
That time has rearranged
But time has the final word
She knows I think of you, she reads my mind
She tries to be unkind
She knows nothing of our world

Although her memory banks overflow
No one would ever know
For all she says: is that what you want?
Maybe one day Ill feel her cold embrace
And kiss her interface
til then, Ill leave her alone.

I love you, sincerely
Yours truly, yours truly…

i have to admit, i’ve always found gucci terribly gauche so lynch doing an ad for them is a little surprising. i know, i know, david lynch is not something most people would connect with good taste… but gucci? dior, yes. chanel yes. ysl, very very yes. perhaps it’s gucci’s vulgarity that made this even palatable for him.
that being said, this ad totally makes me want to be a 16 year old coke whore dancing around & listening to blondie alone bc i have no friends except the ones in my head until i get abducted by inter-dimensional beings. that’s the demographic they’re shooting for, right?
… god, i love david lynch.






















The Kanamara Matsuri is centered around a local penis-venerating shrine once popular among prostitutes who wished to pray for protection against sexually transmitted diseases. It is said that there are divine protections also in business prosperity and the clan’s prosperity, easy delivery, marriage, and married couple harmony. There is also a legend of a sharp-toothed demon that hid inside the vagina of a young girl and castrated two young men on their wedding nights with the young girl before a blacksmith fashioned an iron phallus to break the demon’s teeth, leading to the enshrinement of the item.

these are all from ben caldwell’s delightful “action! cartooning”. i’ve been trying to get a little rubbery with my drawings & feel all right about these. there’s some problems that need to be cleaned up. but nothing too terrible.
