Heinlein Month: Hot Man Bein’ Hot of the Day, James Dean, “Pussy magnet” edition

July 9, 2011


“If you would know a man, observe how he treats a cat.”

(Robert A. Heinlein. The Door Into Summer. New York: Doubleday & Co, 1957.)

James Dean being all handsome and fly with a couple kitty cats, and scope those specs no less! Heat.

A very big guy for pretty much only this type of pussy, Dean’s cat’s name was Marcus. It was a present from Elizabeth Taylor.

Finally, a pen and ink drawing which was auctioned two years ago by his museum on good ol’ eBay. Dean drew it for Geraldine Page, his co-star in a Broadway play. I don’t really want to know what those two are doing, but you have to admit it’s a pretty damned good drawing, as bestiality sketches go.

Look, ma, no gag reflex: Landy Wardoll and consumer equality

July 14, 2010


What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too.

A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good.

Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.


(The Philosophy of Andy Warhol, 1975.)

Daily Batman: Adam Hughes, the hands-down best Catwoman artist

December 1, 2009

How about a little kitteh-lady in your life today? Take a gander at Catwoman’s mercurial adorableness in “The Many Faces of Selina Kyle,” cropped (click through to full picture).


Art by the wonderful, talented, good-humored Adam Hughes, one of the best in the biz today.

Adam Hughes, who is totally cool and cute and hilarious and just a warm, generous human being all around besides being a talented artist, did the cover art for Catwoman (vol.2) issues 43-82. He’s brilliant and, from accounts of people’s encounters with him out and about, a very friendly and upbeat guy, which is a cool thing to find in the comics world.


This is from his wiki. He has a wiki entry! That is charming to me. He seems so accessible, I thought only a-holes had wikis.

Everyone is eager to talk about their favorite stuff, but sometimes really well-known artists can be kind of … prickly. And of course comic book geeks, like geeks of any stripe, can be guilty of the exact sort of elitism that made them feel rejected by the “cool kids” and drove them to their esoteric pursuit to begin with. But it seems not so with “AH!” as he is billed in his signature.


Cover to Catwoman 69 (Sept 2007). Dig all the villains like a swarm of pop-ups on the blowup of the monitor behind her.

So what makes a kitteh-lady drawing? More than sugar and spice and everything nice. From Adam Hughes’s description on his deviantart account:

I miss drawing Selina. It sure was fun with her; lots of different moods. She’s the quintessential femme fatale. And YES, I’m aware the she resembles Audrey Hepburn, LOL.

My personal inspiration for Selina Kyle is Ms. Hepburn, circa 1954-57. My favorite face ever.

My personal inspirational cocktail for Catwoman is:
  • 70% young Audrey Hepburn
  • 20% Liz Taylor from CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF
  • 10% Trinity from the first MATRIX film
  • Super-cute. He’s so great.
