This is one of the best explanations in plain English of what's being proposed in this new legislation, and not just who will impact, but how it will set this nation back decades. To anyone of my generation who is caring for a elderly parent or relative this could wind up impacting your life in a terrible way.

The press is starting to pitch the iPad as a Mac replacement, and as the Microsoft Surface gains real traction I can see why this is a trend. This reminds me of the late 80s when the Mac started to really displace the Apple II. #tech

Today I went to see the Will Eisner Centennial Celebration exhibit at the Society of Illustrators and I was totally blown away. If you're lucky maybe you get to see a mere page of Eisner's work at a comic book show, so here was a rare once in a lifetime chance to see a body of his work that is mostly owned by private collectors.

Eisner plays a key role in the history of comics as his original work on The Spirit really showed what could be done with the medium in terms of story telling and what i would dare call cinematography. But next up in his early 60s Eisner really created and promoted the idea of the graphic novel, which is in itself amazing.

But what I loved about this exhibit is that you get to see up close the amazing craftsmanship of Will Eisner and his studio. His draftsmanship has an amazing level of detail, and you can see everything from miniature comic book layouts to a small drawing of a cockroach, all of which you might miss when look at a comic book page which all of the elements reduced in size.

Yet for all of that detail and delicate penmanship, he often paints in very bold brush strokes and is a master of showing lighting, and staging a single panel to tell a story. Also coming from a graphic design background I even found the quality of the lettering produced at his studio to being very dynamic and communicating a great deal about what a character is saying with typography.

And then added to add of that is that Eisner's stories are set in a film noir take on New York City in the 20th century as a canvas. So those stories are a filled with characters that are unique to city, and he does a wonderful job of showing the grimy underside of the town. Yet on a higher level much of his storytelling can be highly philosophical at points. He really knew how to take a medium to the limit.

This show closes Saturday, so if you love this medium try to see this show...

If you really want to see Roger Moore at his best take a look at his work on the tv series The Saint. And it wasn't a mistake that he was perfect in that he role as he tried to purchased the rights to the books to make it into a series before it was made (and those books went back to the 1920 pre-dating James Bond). During the run of the show he was offered the role of 007 and always turned it down during the 60s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Saint_(TV_series)
