horror and honor: shameless asuang plug + comics news

some sort of chaotic turbulence, which is not mere winter, is coming. go, hit me with the best fvcking shot you've got, work load, study load, extracurricular load, etc. all for honor and excellence and related bullshit to engage the system and the self. all for the search. god. rants in 3.. 2.. 1..

besides the support of underground scenes, i think, comics in the western hemisphere of this hellhole are well-accepted and well-respected because of, maybe, the sociopolitical engagement of some, if not most, of comics creators. for instance, alan moore has been vocal in his support for the occupy movement [link]. recently, there's another initiative [link] from 'occupy comics' [link]--which includes art spiegelman of maus and ben templesmith of wormwood gentleman corpse.


in relation to these anti-establishment artists is another anti-establishment artist--this time, awarded by the establishment [link]: the queen of england "bestowed the honor of Member of the British Empire (MBE) to Grant Morrison for his work as: Comic Book Writer and Playwright. For services to Film and Literature."

i've no news yet how morrison responded, but had there been any protest of some sort, i think it would have been made known. it shall be remembered that john lennon returned the 'honor' of knighthood because of britain's support of america in the vietnam war, among others [link].

so much for honor and excellence and anarchy [link to university of the philippines thread about UP town center]. next stop: horror plug. the asuang issue of paper monster press includes my poem, "Litanya ng Matandang Ulupong." ending this life update slash unsolicited newsy musings w the rest of the list as copypasted from PMP's page:
