If it wasn’t for piracy I would have never been so adamant about buying all of hunter x hunterAnd claymore an vagabond and jojo and dragon ball
they fail to realize that people who bootleg are usually broke or on abudget anyway so they werent’ gonna buy that shit in the first place. But nce they’re put onto this thing, and become a fan, it’s much more likely they’re gonna start spending money on that stuff.
Couldn’t be more proud of my cousins Maddie and Curt Pfeiffer’s band, Lions After Dark. They’re some of the hardest working, talented people I know and it’s really cool having so much talent in my family. Love these guys!
Here’s a T Shirt I they recently commissioned me for which is now for sale online. You may have seen the original before but I changed it some so it could be silkscreened which I think gave it an interesting tone.
As I originally developed [Akira], I used each issue to build more depth and size into this mammoth city [Neo-Tokyo]. I kept trying to achieve this by creating a variety of situations to stage the graphic storytelling. But with film you get to combine all this into one and I think that it is much more convincing on film than in a serialized comic strip. - director Katsuhiro Otomo; P.D. by Hiroshi Ohno, Yuji Ikehata and Kazuo Ebisawa
And here they are:
Thermoception: Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other.
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock.
Equilibrioception: The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes.
Magentoception: This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields.
Tension Sensors: These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception: In a word, pain. This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system. There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).
