Oh I like this - he was suspicious because amongst others " I am carrying a bulky rucksack, and kept my rucksack with me at all times"

What should he effing do, leave it around - that's exactly what the PA tells you to do every five minutes...

Can't win.

I was trying to come up with an explanation for the Block Names, I think the first time it appeared was in City Block 1 (Charlton Heston)...

Bear with me...

OK, since it's established that pre-Atom War rubbish is extremely value (Filmore Faro etc.) it makes sense that either the cits or the housing dept have a bit of a fetish for celebrity of a similar era.

I would imagine a lot of the film/tv from then is banned by Justice Dept, but maybe the pop culture is allowed to keep the population occupied, resulting in Dean Gaffney.

Well, it was a long soak last night...

I don't mind the whole celeb thing, especially if it results in lines like the one mentioned. Dean Gaffney's not exactly current anyway since he's not in Eastenders any more AFAIK.

I just love the extension to other buildings, Gil Gerard memorial spaceport is a great one.

Sykes and Jacques would be a great twinning if one was a tall spindly tower and the other wasn't...

Since Kurt Russell's been done I'd have to go for Brian Blessed block.

The 15 rating worries me a bit - I might wait for the unrated R1 DVD out next month...

Very nice, the only nitpick is that IMHO he looks like he's eaten a few too many hotties.

I don't know whether his midriff is a bit big or the chest a bit small, but he doesn't seem to be as trim as I'd expect.

Since I'm trying to do this 3D Dredd model, it always drives me nuts when people start ranting about links on chains, bars on respirators. For the record I'm going for 5 on the respirator, 10 bars on the shoulder bad, 5 stars on the belt buckle, and no idea how many links on the chain... :)

Nice work.

I think you're horribly wrong :)

Looking at the next issue preview it seems to be talking about a new SD story.

I think this was a one-off (the title of the story ties in with the anniversary issue), but got caught short. Plus there's no 'next...' box at the bottom of the page.

Cheers

General / Meg missing pages?
« on: 19 September, 2005, 07:07:14 pm »
Hi,

Just got my Meg and Tooth.

In the anniversary Meg, the Dredd story has a couple of pages reprinted, and it looks like the Simping Detective stops short. Is that the same for everyone's issue?

Well most portraits tend not to be 12ft high and in the middle of Trafalgar Square. I'm not particularly big on statues of dead people either.

It's more I have a problem with making that person the focus of the piece, rather than just being the 'embodiment of emotion or opinion'. I don't think it would have been less of a piece if the model had remained anonymous.

Making a sculpture out of another artist who then releases a book within a week of the sculpture being unveiled seems a little cliquey and incestous to me.

Maybe large human statues remind me too much of Joel Schumacher Batman...

It depends on the subject matter IMHO. I think if you've got a picture of Myra Hindley made from the handprints of children you can hardly be surprised if someone trys to deface it, I think the artist for a controversial work would rather have it provoke any reaction rather than none.

Back to Alison Lapper, I noticed she's got a book out...

I don't really see the point in making her such a focus of the sculpture, who died and made her the embodiment of motherhood and disability?

I'm just uncomfortable about statues of living people, especially when they're furthering their own careers off the back of it.

It all seems a bit gratingly worthy to me.

I'm not very big on statues of living people, it seems wrong somehow - that said I think the statue of Thatcher without a head might have gone down better.

I do wonder if that's the reason they half-cover the title so it looks like SEX in the vain hope that someone might buy it by mistake and increase their readership marginally.
