Best film of the year so far

Static Flux

June 15, 2008

There’s a new Telos Single/EP thing out for free until the end of the month.  A sexy young superstarDJMC named Sherlock Cock has a tasty remix on the B-Side.  Go and grab it while stocks last…. Bear With Me Records.

P.S I swear to buggery I’ll do a new comic soon.

I’m Baaaaaaaaccck

June 1, 2008

So I’ve finished all my university work and the mini-heatwave was broken today with gallons of glorious cool rain.  So it’s about time I start doing some more doodling.  I still have a bit of work to do before I have room in my office to draw, but there will be new comics soon.  This will include one I’m doing for the Friends of The Galapagos Islands Nature Trust – Kids newsletter.  In other news I’ve been putting together my summer books, albums and DVDs ready to devour over the coming months.  I will be posting pictures of the piles later too.

See you in a few days with a comic.

PS. Listen to Japanther

Burial

May 3, 2008

New Comic up this afternoon.  It took ages and I really like it.  After not seeing what all the hype was about I finally sat down and gave the new Burial album a good listening too.  I’m now super hooked, and it has inspired me to go and try and work out what Xiu Xiu is all about.

GO and listen to this Burial song

Stick with Me

April 30, 2008

I rammed up a new comic today, I’m still uploading pages of the small print comic I abandoned, so some of you will have already seen it. When life gives me lemons of talentlessness, I make talentless lemonade. If you have a spot in your mental register for a new webcomic, I would like to recommend Christiann’s Post-it note comics… I’d post an example but wordpress is being gay. Just go and look at these, the Orange Juice panel is one of my favourite comics ever, and I’ll be stealing the one panel/post it idea soon enough.

Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to return to my misery.

DJ N-Wee – The Slack Album (Jay-Z’s Black Album versus Pavement’s Slanted and Enchanted)

This album was never off my mp3 player when I worked all those shitty temp jobs and it got me through months worth of drizzly commutes. Then it disappeared when Dangermouse got done for The Grey Album. But some kindly soul has uploaded it back online and I suggest you all go and get it.

Telos All About It

April 5, 2008

This post is a two parter – first, a heads up that my good friend Ian’s album is out and available for download here, it’s 12 tracks of noise and ambience and bells and whistles and clart. Oh, and he provides vocals for a few of the songs and he thinks he’s being very clever by having slipped in references to Dr Who, but I’ve spotted them Ian, you shan’t get away with it.

Secondly I decided to have a shot at remixing one of Telos‘ new songs and failed miserably. However it took a while to do and I now feel like a mother who has just born a hideous chiIld, so I’ve put it online for you to have a look anyway – EDIT – Link removed until I get Ian’s permission. But as the remix is fifty seconds of indecipherable clatter, I’m sure he wont mind. Check back in a bit.

Aspire for ’08!

April 4, 2008

I have spent the past few days making a little postcard size comic called Why Hip Hop Sucks in ’08, it is a little 16 page black and white pamphlet with a few poems, comics, doodles and jokes.  I’m essentially just ripping off Lizzlizz and David Shrigley, but I’m having fun and that’s all that matters.   If you would like a copy of this life changing document, then let me know in the comments, or email me.  Or hit me up on MSN (miguelvennie@hotmail.com).  I need to know how many to print.

In the meantime I am so lazy I have used a preview page as my latest comic update, go and have a look, and if it’s any recommendation, it’s in my top 5 favourite things I’ve ever drawn.

Ages ago I drew this picture inspired by 65Daysofstatic’s song Asphalt and Trouble. Last night I decided to re master it whilst listening to their awesome new remix/single. Here it is in its squashed-to-fit-wordpress glory.

I then drunkenly emailed this to the band. That probably had them scratching their heads this morning.

Horror = Minus Snuggles

March 23, 2008

I’ve lobbed up a new comic on www.tizersoze.co.uk, so go and stick your head around the door. However, if you fancy reading a webcomic which is actually good, I suggest going and checking out Issue 1 of Job Search, Leonie’s new comic for Indie Review.

Also MB has created a facebook group for Tizer Soze… I hate facebook but I’m going along with it anyway as apparently it’s good publicity and whatnot.  So yes, why not come and join up, I don’t know how… I reckon if you search ‘Tizer Soze’ or ‘tizersoze’ then you should find us.  Cheers.
