Rangoon Riffs: Ways of Settling Disputes - The Isle of Rangoon on Blip
According to top scienticians, approximately 46 million arguments flare up on the Internet every day-cycle. Perhaps if more people watched this short film from the 50’s, Ways to Settle Disputes, there’d be less online strife.
Or not. Doesn’t seem to do Starchibald and Sunny Jim any good. But join in for Rangoon riffing anyway!
Manners, Democracy & Explosions: The Isle of Rangoon has it all!
Have the newest Skull Panda comics been submitted here? Because they really should be.
Original links are there and there. :)
I’ve never noticed the dog bone thing… I’ll have to go back in the archives and see how many fit that description!
Rangoon Riffs: Bicycle Clown
Do you enjoy bicycle safety? Do you enjoy shame? Then you’ll love Bicycle Clown! Watch Starchibald and Sunny Jim struggle to survive a 1950s romp through the bloodstained world of reckless bicycle stunts…. If said stunts were performed by your grandmother.
Remember: Ride safely, keep your equipment in working order and name names!
Remember a while back I posted a link to Jim C. Hines trying to pose the way women are posed on novel covers? (Which has since been re-submitted to me 10000000 times XD )
He’s done a sequel after all the usual “but men are objectified toooo” & “what about romance covers huh? huh? huh?” (this one is particularly problematic in another way because it implies that every other genre is specifically meant to be a hetero male sexual fantasy.
There it is. The painful life of posing like a man. XD
He’s so brilliant I want to give him infinite hugs. :D
I love that he photoshopped himself in both poses in the last one too.
Edit: I should probably leave his conclusions here too:
- Men on book covers are indeed posed shirtless in ways that show off their musculature. However…
- Male poses do not generally emphasize sexuality at the expense of all other considerations.
- Male poses do emphasize the character’s power and strength in a way many (most?) female cover poses don’t.
- When posed with a woman, the man will usually be in the dominant, more powerful posture.
- Male poses do not generally require a visit to the chiropractor afterward.
- See also ocelott’s post comparing male and female poses. She comes to pretty much the same conclusions as I did.
There was something really off about this. I’m no pro but I gave it a shot anyway…
And if somehow you liked the anatomy from the first one I leave you with this…
I’d be terrified too Batman!
You gave me a much needed laugh. Thank you. :) (Also nice redraw)
