Dr Uba’s Clinic

Someone just pointed me at this.  It comes with the comment

This just reached my desk. Flyer being handed out in Fourways

Dunno if I believe a word of it — although the cited website works

DR Uba: The doctor who will never hide his face to the public of change his name

– but if it’s fake, it’s very funny in a horrible ohgodno kind of way.

EDITED TO ADD: mystery solved. It’s apparently marketing for a film called NIGHT DRIVE. Fun piece of work.

EDITED TO ADD: and then @nic0 on twitter showed me this:

Apparently the guy got stabbed in the end.

SECOND EDIT TO ADD; I’m down the rabbit hole now, Peter Gasston just told me that he used to be called, I shit you not, Unbeatable Atif:

Today I’m in prep for travel tomorrow and trying to get an episode of FREAKANGELS out the door. So at this point warrenellis.com reverts to the old tumble style of short shouts.

I actually feel worse than I look. Hard to believe, I know.

Quick Bits

February 23rd, 2011 | photography

Berlin, actually.

I’m speaking at the Cognitive Cities conference on Saturday, along with Ben Hammersley and Adam Greenfield.

And I’m still writing the talk, because I am a technological peon who still writes talks and then reads them, rather than ad libbing in front of Powerpoint slide things that actually took longer to make and assemble than it would have taken to write a talk. I am very behind the times, and therefore expectations for wakefulness during my talk should be lowered. Like a blanket of Ambien floating down over your head.

Am off on Friday, at which point this site will probably devolve into a flurry of quick posts from the road.

Currently waiting on the nod to mention a thing in Ireland next month.

Today I got a lovely and fascinating thing in email from a film company, a look at some pencils for the first "new" issue of CASANOVA which is just mental, and a read of the fantastically beautiful new comic NONPLAYER by Nate Simpson, which you yourself can see a preview of right here at this link. The whole thing is just a fucking stunning piece of illustration.

This is a pretty picture by my friend Liliana B, who’s selling her prints on Etsy now.

Dwayne McDuffie

February 22nd, 2011 | people I know

I just heard reports that writer & producer Dwayne McDuffie is dead.

We talked – and occasionally argued – for years, at my message board.  I had huge respect for both him and his work.  Later, he was good enough to hire me to write a JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED cartoon for him.  I had a terrific time doing that: turned out he was great to work with, too.  if you had to pick out ten people in this poxy business whom you’d stand in front of when the shit started flying, Dwayne would be on most people’s lists.

I can’t wrap my mind around the notion that he’s not here anymore, to be honest.
