Jerry Goldsmith, “Life Is A Dream” (Film Version)

If you don’t absolutely love this, then you need to find another blog to follow. That’s just a stone cold fact.

It is indeed. 

"Alan Moore, Steve Bell, Savage Pencil and others have taken the ethos of my work, The Beano Spirit, that uninhibited outlook, and they’re carrying it on in their own work. I think that’s wonderful."

— Leo Baxendale (via brianjohnspencer)

It’s very hard for me to be silly about Superman, because I’ve seen firsthand how he actually transforms people’s lives. I have seen children dying of brain tumors who wanted as their last request to talk to me, and have gone to their graves with a peace brought on by knowing that their belief in this kind of character really matters. It’s not Superman the tongue-in-cheek cartoon character they’re connecting with; they’re connecting with something very basic: the ability to overcome obstacles, the ability to persevere, the ability to understand difficulty and to turn your back on it. [Christopher Reeve] – Time, (March 14, 1988)

classictrek:

All told, I’d say it’s James T. Kirk who had the highest ration of shit heaped his way over the course of the series and movies. In his pilot episode (“Where No Man Has Gone Before”), he was forced to kill his best friend, Gary Mitchell. In “The City On The Edge Of Forever,” he was forced to let the love of his life die so humanity could prosper and a week later, “Operation — Annihilate!” showed the death of his brother and sister-in-law from a plague of flying parasites.

Over the course of the series, Kirk also: saw a trusted colleague betray him (“Court Martial”); was accused of heinous crimes after a transporter accident left his personality bisected (“The Enemy Within”); left an amazing woman behind in a parallel dimension (“Mirror, Mirror”); was forced to fight his other best friend to the death (“Amok Time”); left behind another amazing woman (“The Paradise Syndrome”).

Then we get into the movies, where we see him forced to face down his hubris and lose his best friend in the process (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan) before he loses his ship and his recently-discovered son in the course of a single afternoon (Star Trek III: The Search For Spock).

The fact that he kept going after everything that happened to him speaks volumes about the strength of his character. Jim Kirk’s very career made him a magnet for tragic events but he kept going forward, kept…boldly going.

(And I didn’t even mention that when he was a youth, Jim Kirk witnessed the slaughter of millions of innocents under the reign of Kodos the Executioner.)

A preproduction sketch by Mike Minor from “In Thy Image,” which was set to be the pilot episode for Star Trek: Phase II. While that series (which was itself an attempt to salvage the original aborted Trek movie) never happened, many of the ideas and designs for it were integrated into Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Today’s warm-up sketch. Probably the loosest I’ve managed, and definitely the one I’ve learned the most from. Enjoy!
