Hey pals, I am such a huge, huge fan of this musical project that I am going to post about it. At length. It's seriously worth a quick, casual listen, and it's downright delicious for people who are into backstory.

An album of music inspired by Batman,
his acquaintances, loves, and foes

by Maiden Names

♪ Listen to and/or purchase Alexa and Mark’s Batman-inspired album, Blackout Shades, at the Maiden Names’ Bandcamp!

♪ Learn about Alexa's inspirations and thoughts on the Dark Knight in a special installment of the Make Believers podcast!

♪ Watch the Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow music video, directed by my boyfriend Neil Cicierega, at yoursuffering.com or below:

This is a project that's been over a year in the making. Alexa is a talented visual artist as well as a gifted songwriter and singer, who happens to have an abiding interest in the cast of characters who populate Gotham.

Here's a track listing, along with who/what the songs are about:

1. Love Your Enemy (Joker)
2. American Hero (Two-Face)
3. Your Suffering (Scarecrow)
4. Stop Bleeding (Batman)
5. Blackout Shades (Alfred)
6. Come Down to Earth (Poison Ivy)
7. Eyeblack (Bruce Wayne)
8. I'm Your Bitch (Harley Quinn)
9. No Slack (Catwoman)

Art, music, and life in outer space. [Nov. 19th, 2009|01:11 pm]

Hey guys! Sorry I've been so silent, life is full of big and exciting changes on the personal and professional fronts lately, and hopefully I'll be able to write about all of these strange, sweet new happenings in due course. For now, I come bearing Internet gifts!

First off is a very silly and short video starring emmycic, trapezzoid and myself, showcasing one of our more mundane mutual talents.

Neil Cicierega Presents 'With Flare'Collapse )

And here is Neil's (the aforementioned trapezzoid) newest song under the Lemon Demon flag. It is called "Eighth Wonder" and you can download it by right-click-saving ♪♪♪ here ♪♪♪ and I think it is very pretty and enthralling and also I handlettered all the lyrics for this video, so! Please enjoy!

Lemon Demon - Eighth WonderCollapse )

And to complete this Cicierega-centric post, here's a piece of discarded Lemon Demon promotional art I did a few weeks ago. limekle has boats in her hair!

Lemon Demon - Neil and AloraCollapse )

There have also been two new The Loneliest Astronauts strips in my absence, "Blush Response" and "I feel it in my head, I feel it in my toes" (super-sized for more astro-awesome!).

The Loneliest Astronauts updates weekly, on Tuesdays. Add it to your RSS feeds (loneastrofeed)!

Here's the full pirate crew song from my vlog report on the 2009 San Diego Comic-Con. If anyone has any information on who these rocking rapscallions are, please share! They were amazing.

♪♪♪ "We're a pirate crew,
and we'll murder you,
and if you don't like this song
then we'll eat you too! Arrgh!" ♪♪♪

an acquaintance? [May. 14th, 2009|10:10 pm]

[Current Music |red omen - an acquaintance]

this might be the greatest day of my life. musician ryan walker, AKA red omen, was so inspired by one of my letters to walken that he wrote a piece of music based on it.

the little minxy muse of a letter in question is none other than "an acquaintance?" year 2.

♪ download the song here! ♪

[Current Music |andrew bird - anonanimal]

here's a drawing in honor of the upcoming andrew bird album which can now be heard in full online courtesy of NPR. it's super terrific! the album, not the art.

noble beast.Collapse )

and here are some faraway laser sounds for neil.Collapse )

i'm about 300 pages into OotP now and i've decided that if i'd gone to hogwarts, i'd absolutely have been the weird art kid underachiever in ravenclaw. anyone else ever ridiculously sorted themselves into a magical make-believe house?

dress up one, dress up all! [Jan. 7th, 2009|09:12 pm]

[Current Music |monty montgomery - catch her in the rye]

happy birthday, oxboxer! i hope you are partying hearty and eating so many sushis and/or other delicious delicacies and swanning around town in beautiful glass birthday slippers, et cetera. <3

this is my new ringtone. i love it! i used to have "hey" by the pixies, but frank black kept startling me rather badly. andrew bird should be suitably soothing.

in less joyous news, my throat was sore all day so i had to beg out of going into cambridge tonight with leapingcustard to play, which was the pits. but it's just too cold and slushy to revel outdoors in anything less than prime physical condition, damn these picturesque new england winters!

not all was a loss, however. i discovered this most charming regency era dress up doll made by a talented lady on deviantart called savivi. and my, there's even a male version!

of course i went ahead and regency dolled myself right up. you guys do it too, then we can all have a big comments tea party!

ooh it's regency ming, la de da! lawks.Collapse )

i am so interested in learning flash so i can make fun animations and my own dressup dolls. maybe sometime after i finish my hugely delayed pileup of commissions, secret character sketches, chinese new year cards and online store preparations. sigh.

anyone know of any good flash tutorials? :)

my very first meme, oh eew. limekle, since you were the facebook instigator, this one's for you. and trapezzoid, it's a teensy bit for you too on account of your laissez-faire attitude vis-à-vis specific tagging.

1. put your iTunes (or any other media player you may have) on shuffle.
2. for each question, press the next button to get your answer.
4. tag 10 friends who might enjoy doing the meme as well as the person you got the memo from.


i tag anyone who has the inclination and the time. it's not laziness, it's consideration!
