Merchandise! (not really)

The last of my tsunami of JOAN material, dvd cases and labels that were made for the double bill that was, frankly, the social event of the season. First is the less appalling "Letty Lynton", followed by the train wreck of social progress, "Torch Song".

Two JOAN posters...

Of varying levels of atrocity, one of which carries a bloated asterik.

Letty Lynton! An 80-ish minute illegal spectacle whose moral seems to be that rich white people are above the law. 

Torch Song! A film that's offensive in so many ways, though it's most famous for Crawford's inexplicable use of blackface in a musical number. The film shouldn't be allowed to hide from that. Oh, and it was made in 1953. And most unsettlingly, it seems the use of blackface was something that MGM was proud of:

"I've broken yooou..."

The last scene of "Torch Song": Joan Crawford's character glides in like a Dalek and exterminates everyone. Genuinely terrifying.

JOAN etching

Any attempt to portray JOAN in a medium that doesn't require the usage of fire and acid is a pointless endeavor. Another piece in my tidal wave of material for JOAN month. I'm staggering the blogging of it to make it appear that I'm a functioning human thing.

Milk and Cookies After Dark 2 (March 2011)

More than a year ago, when we were still having an identity crisis under the name "Inklude" - we did some live drawing at a Milk and Cookies event called After Dark 2: Seven Deadly Sins. It was pretty fancy. We got laminated cardboard cookies with "talent" written on them to wear around our bloated frog necks. As usual, nobody took photos on the night but the ever reliable, dedicated and handsome Coffee lugged the enormous drawings home with the aid of his trusty donkey, Niall. (I may be making some of this up)

Yesterday he photographed them using magic. And so, for the first time on this internet or any other, we present to you photographic evidence of these boards.

more after the jump, chumps.
