Blights final missing adventure? Help support “Lencho”, & Some thoughts about the week.

June 29, 2009

Greetings and salutations,

This post marks the final episode in this chapter of Blights “Missing Adventures”, I will be posting other comic strips, its just that Blight the Clown will be taking a break from the internet to work on his book. Also, check out the trailers for my friends movie, “Lencho”, he has been kicking ass on it for several months now and it should prove to be pretty fantastic. He is having a bit of a fundraiser for the movie in a few days so he can try and pay some of his crew. Details are posted in the blog.

The film El Regreso de Lencho (in English it’s The Return of Lencho). It was shot on 16mm film on location in Guatemala in late 2008 (there is also an animated part to the film). It is currently in post production. It’s a Spanish language film about a character named Lencho who uses street art to organize Guatemalan youth–now targeted by the police as insurgents–to express their social justice and human rights concerns in an increasingly corrupt and violent Guatemala. It promotes graffiti art and human rights in a globalized third world.

:::THOUGHTS ON THE WEEK:::

There must be something in the air, the past few weeks have been filled with celebrity death. First David Carradine and his fantastically shocking yet sudden death, then Ed Mcmahon, I guess we saw this one coming, he was old and sick, but sad none-the-less. Then Farrah Fawcett, again sad, but a very public documentary about her cancer prepaired us for it. Then Michael Jackson, I guess this is the one that got to me the most, very tragic and unexpected, just on the verge of a comeback tour, trying to get back on his feet after a very public stoning by a hypocritical society. In his case, I wonder what ever happened to innocent until proven guilty. No matter if you love or hate the guy, he had a huge impact on most anybody that grew up in the 80’s. He took music videos to a level that blew peoples minds, I can remember watching the video of the making of Thriller, it was my first glips behind the scenes into the world of filmmaking. Then he bridged the gap between video games and music with an amazing title for the Sega Genesis called Moonwalker, a game where you defeated the bad-guys by dancing! I even remember how the world came to a stop and everyone turned their televisions on at the same time to watch the premiere of his video for “Black & White”.  Michael Jackson even introduced me to one of my all time favorite artists, when Weird Al did the song “Eat It”, that changed my life forever. So it is with a sad heart that I mourn the death of a brilliant artist. Then all-of-the-sudden, I find out that the infomercial guy Billy Mays died this morning. Now, even though it is always sad when someone dies, before last week, I don’t think his death would of personally effected me in anyway, BUT I saw him on Conan O’brien, and for the first time enjoyed his non-salesman personality, he actually made a really funny segment with Conan, and I thought I might even try watching his new television series “Pitchmen”, but I guess it was not meant to be. Such an odd week. Below is a youtube video response to Michael Jackson’s death that seems appropriate to describe the hypocrisy of the public.

Michael Jackson is Dead

JANE ROSE STEALS BLIGHTS NOSE!!! A NEW COMIC STRIP!

June 14, 2009

Holy flim flam bang bang pops on a stick,

It sure has been a while since I posted the last Blight comic strip. This will be the second to last Missing Adventures strip I post before I begin work on the “MIS-ADVENTURES OF BLIGHT THE CLOWN.” The new Blight story will not be posted online as I will be saving that particular story for the book I am working on. After I post the 30th comic strip next week, I will begin posting strips from a new story I am working on called, “PROFESSOR VON GOITER – The Worlds Most Miserable Private Dick.”  In the meantime, I will also be posting little video clips to my Youtube channel as often as possible, so be sure to subscribe to that: http://www.youtube.com/blightproductions

:::DEVIANTART SUGGESTION THREAD CRAZINESS:::

So I am a pretty active member of this Social Network site called DeviantART, it boasts to be the largest online community for artists on the internet. They have a forum for suggestions on the site. I thought that it might be a good idea to create an EVENTS feature to help artists promote their art openings, film screenings, performances, and other things like that.  With the idea to keep it well organized by City, Date, and Time.  Pretty strait forward idea, but some of the responses I got were rather wacked out.  Check out the posting thread here, it’s still going on, so be sure to read all the pages and let me know what you think: http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/suggestions/1204686/

:::OTHER NEWS:::

I am fully stocked with some kick ass postcards, so if you want to help promote my Clown Carol movie or my comic strip please let me know and I can send you a stack of postcards to pass out in your neck of the woods. Just use the contact form on my website, and I will get back to you ASAP!
