    Harry Benson     R. Crumb on the Subway, New York City     1968

    "My generation comes from a world that has been molded by crass TV programs, movies, comic books, popular music, advertisements and commercials. My brain is a huge garbage dump of all this stuff and it is this, mainly, that my work comes out of, for better or for worse. I hope that whatever synthesis I make of all this crap contains something worthwhile, that it’s something other than just more smarmy entertainment—or at least, that it’s genuine high quality entertainment. I also hope that perhaps it’s revealing of something, maybe. On the other hand, I want to avoid becoming pretentious in the eagerness to give my work deep meanings! I have an enormous ego and must resist the urge to come on like a know-it-all. Some of the imagery in my work is sorta scary because I’m basically a fearful, pessimistic person. I’m always seeing the predatory nature of the universe, which can harm you or kill you very easily and very quickly, no matter how well you watch your step. The way I see it, we are all just so much chopped liver. We have this great gift of human intelligence to help us pick our way through this treacherous tangle, but unfortunately we don’t seem to value it very much. Most of us are not brought up in environments that encourage us to appreciate and cultivate our intelligence. To me, human society appears mostly to be a living nightmare of ignorant, depraved behavior. We’re all depraved, me included. I can’t help it if my work reflects this sordid view of the world. Also, I feel that I have to counteract all the lame, hero-worshipping crap that is dished out by the mass-media in a never-ending deluge." R. Crumb

Happy Birthday Patrick Joseph McGoohan (19 March 1928 - 13 January 2009 ∞)

Fame is nothing. Taken by itself it’s a nuisance because it comes close to destroying privacy, which I regard as one of man’s most precious rights. It’s tolerable only as a concomitant of success. I’m humbly grateful that I’m able to do work I like, have some control over it, and earn a few pounds.

I think it was a party before we went to a gig. Paul was like the poster boy for cool punk. Caroline was one of the first journalists to write about the punk scene [for Melody Maker], and they made a very beautiful, cool-looking pair. The guy in the background is the writer Jon Savage."
