Empirical Media Theory



We start our official Nikki Nack tour tonight. To celebrate: OUR CRAZY NEW MUSIC VIDEO! 

Maybe EMA could score a Shane Carruth movie.





Some film folks I know from Oxford, MS, are making a doc about the Elvis-impersonator-ricin guy. Check it out! Donate if you wanna!


I wanted to … make [Rorschach] as like, ‘this is what Batman would be in the real world’. But I have forgotten that actually to a lot of comic fans, ‘smelling’, ‘not having a girlfriend’, these are actually kind of heroic! So Rorschach became the most popular character in Watchmen. I made him to be a bad example. But I have people come up to me in the street and saying: ‘I AM Rorschach. That is MY story’. And I’d be thinking: ‘Yeah, great. Could you just, like, keep away from me, never come anywhere near me again as long as I live?’

I have a Rorschach t-shirt that I still like quite a bit (because even that mediocre movie couldn’t ruin such a great comic), but I always feel like I have to do a lot of hand-waving whenever people compliment me on it (which happens kind of a lot, no lie, it’s a pretty cool t-shirt). Anyways, I should probably retire it. I also kind of love it when Alan Moore stirs up the comics fandom shitpot, even though if he saw me in this t-shirt (yes, I’m actually wearing it right now) he’d apparently cross the street, or something.
