Shippers finally find their anthem with ‘I Ship It’

i-ship-it

While a lot of nerdy parody videos and songs can be a chore to endure, Not Literally Productions’ ode to shipping, “I Ship It,” is really enjoyable, in part because it spoofs Icona Pop’s ubiquitous “I Don’t Care,” which bores into your brain like one of those eels from Star Trek II, but also because the lyrics are pretty clever.

For instance, “You’re on the canon ground, I’m up in crack ship space; Let’s start a shipping war, I don’t care if I get hate; Don’t like my pairings? Well, then you can hit the bricks; This is my OTP, I’ll go down with this ship.”

I apologize in advance for getting this stuck in your head.

Woodring & Frisell to combine music & comics in San Francisco

Jazzy_Woodring

Art and music collide in San Francisco this weekend as cartoonist Jim Woodring teams with jazz musician Bill Frisell for “a delightful live multi-media collaboration.” Woodring will join Frisell on Saturday for both an evening and matinee performance, in which Woodring will create live digital illustrations, projected on Miner Auditorium’s large video screen, to accompany and inspire the music.

This isn’t the first time the duo has collaborated: Frisell provided the soundtrack for Woodring’s Trosper, published in 2002 by Fantagraphics.

The matinee begins at 2 p.m., and the evening performance at 7:30 p.m. You can find more details on the SFJazz website.

The classic superhero albums you didn’t know you wanted

jimenez-diana prince

If DC Comics can do 3D covers for Villains Month and Marvel can release Deadpool variants, it seems like they could make room on their publishing slates for, oh, I don’t know, a series that depicts some of their most recognizable characters on classic album covers.

That request isn’t as random as it seems (well, maybe it is), as artist Robert Jiménez painted Wonder Woman, Batgirl, Catwoman, Doctor Strange and Lobo on LP sleeves for an art show, and they’re pretty amazing. Unfortunately, he’s already sold the originals, but he hopes to create more soon.

Check out some of the pieces below, and the rest on Jiménez’s website.
