Culture Bomb 2010.08.16

(Yes yes I know I’ve not posted in weeks. Sue me.)

CULTURE BOMB is something I hope to be a regular feature here: the best of free, downloadable pop culture content for your brain’s enjoyment. If you have anything to share with the rest of the class, please EMAIL to gdwessel@gmail.com with the subject CULTURE BOMB.

* Lea Hernandez’s webcomic Near-Life Experience is a joy to read.

* The newest chapter of Murder Book by Ed Brisson and Simon Roy, “Skimming the Till”, has one of the best final pages I’ve seen in a while.

* Two people I know have webcomics debuting this week! Evan “Doc” Shaner has Red Clay, and fellow Indianapolis resident Kyle Latino brings us The Neptonian.

* Webcomic: Dick Fistus. Yeah, I know. Don’t ask.

* PIONEER ONE: if you’ve not seen this yet, DO SO. Hard SF TV pilot, funded via crowdsourcing (at Kickstarter). Links to download it via Bittorrent, or to watch it on YouTube. Bit of a suspension of disbelief issue, but otherwise very interesting concept, and I hope there’s an episode 2. Actually, I hope to WRITE an episode sometime.

* Did you go see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World this past weekend? (Well, it seems a lot of people DIDN’T) Familiar with Bryan Lee O’Malley’s graphic novels>? Then check out this animation from Adult Swim done in O’Malley’s style of a scene from the comic that DIDN’T make it into the movie.

* A 3-track EP by Boston-based group The Heartsleeves entitled “Peripheral People” which I link to despite the last track being a tribute to the hated New England Patriots…

* Kemper Norton’s long out-of-print first album Season One is now available from the band as a free download, First Season

* From Corporate Records, the un-label that brought you one of my favorite albums this year (Songs for Swinging Lovers by The Indelicates) comes a choose-your-price-including-FREE EP from the band Dirty North entitled Know What I Think?

* Comedy, fantasy, and interview in audio form from writer Ian Potter.

* Finally, short sharp shocking bizarro fiction by Made in DNA (He also has an Amazon store)
