Transparent lighter filled with blood

The truth is that the kind of magazine pieces I used to do are not published in magazines anymore.

Finalmente salió “The Multiversity #01” y Captain Carrot se roba todas las mejores líneas #themultiversity. 

Falta una semana para “Multiversity”. Acá están las primeras seis páginas. Nada de lo que escriba acá puede hacer justicia a mi ansiedad. 

I kept talking about it way ahead of time because we have Frank Quitely doing this kind of “Watchmen”-esque book — and Quitely’s slow but I handed him a script, because we wanted to do the whole “Watchmen” method. So I gave him one of these Alan Moore-type scripts that’s like [motions widely with his hands] this size, with panel descriptions that’s just some guy’s nose that run for five pages. So poor Quitely’s just sitting going, “Oh my god…” He’s actually been working on this thing for two and a half years, and again, that was part of the delay.

Ray Davies reviews Revolver for the magazine Disc And Music Echo, 1966.
“Taxman” – “It sounds like a cross between the Who and Batman. It’s a bit limited, but the Beatles get over this by the sexy double-tracking. It’s surprising how sexy double-tracking makes a voice sound.”
“Eleanor Rigby” – “I bought a Haydn LP the other day and this sounds just like it. It’s all sort of quartet stuff and it sounds like they’re out to please music teachers in primary schools. I can imagine John saying: ‘I’m going to write this for my old schoolmistress’. Still it’s very commercial.”
“I’m Only Sleeping” – “It’s a most beautiful song, much prettier than ‘Eleanor Rigby’. A jolly old thing, really, and definitely the best track on the album.
“Love You Too” – “George wrote this – he must have quite a big influence on the group now. This sort of song I was doing two years ago – now I’m doing what the Beatles were doing two years ago. It’s not a bad song – it’s well performed which is always true of a Beatles track.”
“Here There and Everywhere” – “This proves that the Beatles have got good memories, because there are a lot of busy chords in it. It’s nice – like one instrument with the voice and the guitar merging. Third best track on the album.”
“Yellow Submarine” – “”This is a load of rubbish, really. I take the mickey out of myself on the piano and play stuff like this. I think they know it’s not that good.”
“She Said She Said” – “This song is in to restore confidence in old Beatles sound. That’s all.”
“Good Day Sunshine” – “This’ll be a giant. It doesn’t force itself on you, but it stands out like ‘I’m Only Sleeping’. This is back to the real old Beatles. I just don’t like the electronic stuff. The Beatles were supposed to be like the boy next door only better.”
“And Your Bird Can Sing” – “Don’t like this. The song’s too predictable. It’s not a Beatles song at all.”
“Dr. Robert” - “It’s good – there’s a 12-bar beat and bits in it that are clever. Not my sort of thing, though.”
“I Want To Tell You” – “This helps the LP through though it’s not up to the Beatles standard.”
“Got To Get You Into My Life” – “Jazz backing – and it just goes to prove that Britain’s jazz musicians can’t swing. Paul’s sings better jazz than the musicians are playing which makes nonsense of people saying jazz and pop are very different. Paul sounds like Little Richard. Really, it’s the most vintage Beatles track on the LP.”
“Tomorrow Never Knows” – “Listen to all those crazy sounds! It’ll be popular in discotheques. I can imagine they had George Martin tied to a totem pole when they did this.”
“This is the first Beatles LP I’ve really listened to in it’s entirety but I must say there are better songs on ‘Rubber Soul’. Still, ‘I’m Only Sleeping’ is a standout. ‘Good Day Sunshine is second best and I also like ‘Here, There and Everywhere.’ But I don’t want to be harsh about the others. The balance and recording technique are as good as ever.”

El atlas Mnemosyne de Aby Warburg, historiador del arte de principios del siglo XX. 

He began his Bilderatlas in 1924 and it was left unfinished at his death in 1929. Constructed in his library, it consisted of sixty-three wooden boards, covered in black cloth, to which he tacked, and then reconfigured, black and white reproductions of masterpieces and little-known works of art, literary tropes and conventions, allegorical figures and cosmological images, as well as newspaper and magazine clippings and advertisements, maps and assorted ephemera.10 As such, it constituted a means to chart the afterlife of ancient forms through time to his present day. Rather than publish this work, he presented his findings live, in conversations and talks to select audiences. Its format and usage guaranteed that it would remain a continually renewed, rather than finalized, project.
