Joseph Francis's Comments

Unmentioned in this post but there is also the resentment in the other direction that men feel toward people who use 'sorry' as a social ritual when they clearly aren't sorry.

Top 2 interesting things about me related to Letterman. Number 2, when I was in college I had an autographed 8x10 of Letterman head writer Merrill Markoe (among other people I liked) on my wall. And the number 1 interesting thing: I once got a view mail letter read on air.

I was wondering about that funhouse. I couldn't believe they'd make one so elaborate for this ad. I'm also surprised the movie went to Texas. I thought it was all shot around Hollywood.

Moire of lines against lines is also how the car headlights were put on the roads in this old vector-based cg animated intro to 'Night Flight' (if anyone remembers that show)

If you imagine the moire between white radiating lines on black and other white radiating lines on black -- where white becomes clear and black opaque on film -- that's how the glints radiating from the torch were done on the old Columbia logo.

I really don't know what to think about all this stuff. When it is criticized I take it personally because I like it and I even create art that is sexually charged. My initial reaction to the complaint about a lack of objectified males is a degree of irritation, and I ask, "is there a demand? If we make some do you promise to at least make an effort to consume it?" Or, "if you want to see other kinds of games and comics then by all means make some." But if I try to see it from the other side, then I guess the fear is that comics that are never seen or read by woman are nevertheless going to impact their lives because people raised on them will take those women less seriously as equally qualified men. that raises some questions, such as "is that actually what is happening?" and "if so then what -- if anything -- can we or should we do about it?"
