Too much Information

too much information

I wanted to insert Duran Duran’s vid for too much information in the TV that the girl from just dance is watching.  I’m not technologically inclined enough to take a video and put it into a still picture, but I do what I can.  So basically I just drew the girl that’s in just dance (not exactly as you should be able to see), but a cartoon version looking at a picture of Duran Duran’s single for Too much Information. She comes into the vid at around 3:00.

Here’s Duran Duran’s Too much Information

Sure the song is from the early 90s so its references are TV and MTV instead of the internet.  But really if a song about too much information should come out again it would be now. I think there is too much information to process.  We could all end up like those bing commercials in which people have search engine symdrome with all the blogs, twitter, gossip, and news that we try to process.  And yes I’m saying process like a computer does, because that’s what people are becoming information processing machines aka computers.

What do you think? Are people becoming computers?

The Manga Bible

I just read The Manga Bible: From Genesis to Revelation by Siku and Akin. I liked it.   It doesn’t go into too much depth considering that its the entire bible in one volume that around 200 pages.  But because it doesn’t go into depth the reader is able to see the progression of time and the cyclical nature of how the Jews would believe in One God then be led astray and how they were brought back again.  It also shows the similarity between the types of people chosen by God.  No one was flawless. 

And Jesus is awesome in here (not that he’s not awesome everywhere else), but I think people have a tendency of showing Jesus as kind of soft.  In this book he’s definitely kick ass.  And when he think about it he probably had to be.  He lasted in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights, turned down the devil, knocked some sense into the Pharisees, the list goes on.

The manga bible provides a slightly different point of view than what you’re probably used to, but there are many points of view when it comes to understanding the bible.
