Tired old Manly Punker Cliches. or, does Lemmy get tired of being Lemmy?
I'm reminded of when the artist who did Zippy the Pinhead, what the hell is his name, Bill Griffith, wrote a tirade against Richard Corben & alot of the underground fantasy artists coming up that what they were doing wasn't underground, because it didn't deal with emasculated sexual frustrations & the dilemnas presented by wearing glasses or feeling uncomfortable in new jeans (my words, not his). I think RAGMAR (where is that dude?) spoke of this as well, about a piece of mine, about capturing the youthful enthusiasm for the heroic characters & the classic stories & loving all of the things that we loved before we decided that they were played out or somehow immature. This Space Ork embodies my youthful loves that have all come flooding back to me. The chainsword is speaking to me in particular these days. I'd love to have one.
