"Another time, Jack took a call. A voice on the other end said, ‘There are three of us down here in the lobby. We want to see the guy who does this disgusting comic book and show him what real Nazis would do to his Captain America’. To the horror of others in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and headed downstairs. The callers, however, were gone by the time he arrived."

It’s Jack Kirby’s birthday, so here’s that story of him being bad ass all of the time.

(via nerdhapley)

True fact: during WWII Kirby was assigned as a scout due to his art skills, meaning that he went in alone and unarmed, ahead of Allied attacks so that he could draw enemy fortifications.

Once he was ambushed by three Nazi soldiers, all of them with guns. He killed all three with a knife he stole from one of them.

Dude was verifiably grade-A stone-cold badass.

And that’s why Jack Kirby was the King.

In Drums West, Jim Henson channels Norman McLaren, translating jazz into abstract animation. Filmed in Jim Henson’s home studio in Bethesda, MD around 1961. Stay to the end to see some shots of a young, beardless Jim Henson slaving away under the camera, moving scraps of paper about.

For comparison, here’s Norman McLaren and Evelyn Lambart’s Begone Dull Care (1948), drawn directly onto the film:

Love this 3DS pixelart ⊟
There’s something pleasant about the idea of playing games in pink light, while the setting sun has the sky blushing. The piece comes from Amanda/Merrigo, who has posted a lot of beautiful pixels on her Tumblr. 
BUY Nintendo 2DS & 3DS/XL, upcoming games
