Yesterday on Talk of the Nation they talked with illustrator R. Crumb about his latest book: "The Book of Genesis Illustrated by R. Crumb".
For those of you too young to remember R. Crumb, let me give you a quick Primer.
Keep On Truckin'!
The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers
"Fritz the Cat"
If you were a stoner in the early '70's (and everyone was), you remember R. Crumb's illustrations in various underground comics for sale in the head shops of the day. Like Temple Slug.
They used to sell a lot more than flip 'n fucks and incense!
R. Crumb recently took on a 4 year project to illustrate the entire Book of Genesis.
He made a conscious decision to illustrate the text as is. No interpretation, no mockery, no editing. Just a straight-forward illustration assignment.
He even illustrated each and every begat. I'm really looking forward to getting a copy of this.
And now for something entirely different.
Ever wonder where God was on 9/11?
If you believe in an Omnipotent, Omniscient, Supreme Being, or Greater Power, or any sort of Guiding Force of The Universe,you surely must have asked yourself, "What page of the Divine Plan were we on THAT day?"
Mr. Deity and his Executive Admin Larry have the answer.
Thanks to my buddy Kanga for the heads up!
