My jaw is like dislocated or some crap.

Hey look! I'm back to updating somewhat regularly! Tell your friends!

Monday night in the brand new tattoo shop lobby.
Chippy and I discuss the cinema.
Bethany made cupcakes in the likeness of Slash and Bill, our two friends celebrating their birthdays.
Slash is needlessly skeptical. That's usually my job.
Fatheads : our home away from home.Cleo and Erik discuss things with others.
Danielle and Justun keep their hands to themselves.
I don't really know how this happened, but Slash ended up with an egg (from his house salad) with a candle in it for this birthday.
Why we love Fatheads.

It keeps me in good shape COME ON!

Possibly the greatest thing that transpired from the latter years of the Soviet Union. Also, happy birthday, Slash!

Today Too Much

SO MUCH has been going on in the past 2 months that I almost don't know where to begin. I'll condense it for easy digestion...

LIFE

I'm a lucky man.

Captain of industry at Lyndhurst.

Sphinxes! What fresh mythological hell is this?

Cleo and my parents at Applebees in New Jersey.

Renegade, second day.

Cleo and the South Side.

The best/worst flyer ever.

MEDIA

Ha ha ha. Yes. Not a perfect movie, but a bunch of inspired performances and moments strung together. I can't recommend it enough. Heath Ledger is just about as good as the hype says he is.


And hey, it's a good year to be nerdy and into movies. I totally saw the trailer for The Watchmen and got goose bumps. They had better not screw this up.

Also, The Spirit. I honestly have no idea whether or not it'll be any good, but Cleo and I are signed up. The comic rules.



PERSEPOLIS! FINALLY! We've been wanting to see this forever, being fans of the graphic novels, and it's absolutely incredible. The story of a girl growing up in 70's/80's Iran. Seek it out, you'll thank me. 2D animation. Screw you, Shreks of the world.

Mad Men, on AMC, is great great great. I'm about 4 episodes in thus far and I'm loving it.



WORK


Iterative Summer Reel from Scott Benson on Vimeo.

New reel, new work, etc. Check it. Lots of new clips coming throughout the rest of the summer.

In other news, some thing may be changing around here but I won't know for a couple of days. Stay tuned. I'll also have some new artwork up this week. Stay tuned also for that.

I'm not sorry!

I'm back!

Instead of a lengthy post on why I was away for so long, I'll just skip to this, a great video of a great song. I mean to make an animated video for the original song at some point (which will be efficient - it's only 24 seconds long or so).
