misguided empathy (haiku)

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

Yep, it’s haiku time again. You know what to do.

I have grumpy stuff on my mind about people stealing other people’s work (Todd Goldman is a thief ) and I can’t think of anything fun to talk about. Hmm. Okay, how about a link to a comic that often revels in discomfort and awkwardness? I read Idiot Comics regularly and had somehow neglected to add a link until today. Check it out.

As always, thanks for reading and for your awesome haiku comments.

    a sacrifice made
    leaves injury and sorrow
    disastrous delight

    Scarred and torn, she is
    the Venus di Milo of
    chocolate bunnies.

    Oh my gosh.. I knew that character looked familiar!

    I actually got a shirt with the L character for a t-shirt from Hot Topic.

    Wow.. I’m really sorry this is happening to you.

  4. Adam Says:

    The whole Todd Goldman thing is kinda creepy. Sure, people borrow ideas and themes, but to rip off a famous (at least in internet terms) comic and then have the audacity to hang it in a gallery with your name on it… wow.

    a lady loves me
    chocolate bunny perfect

    Tealia – NOT Happening TO ME personally.

    But it IS happening to Roman Dirge (creator of Lenore the Cute Little Dead Girl), Dave Kelly (Purple Pussy Comics) , Liz Greenfield (Stuff Sucks) and others. The t-shirt you bought, if it was “Lenore” than it’s Dirge’s merchandising which is great. If you buy something that looks an awful lot like Lenore but is called Eve L, than it’s Goldman ripping off Dirge’s character. He has an entire line of T-shirts that are obvious rip-offs of Dirge’s Lenore.

    Goldman actually traced that Purple Pussy comic, colored it in and hung it in a freaking art gallery. His painting of Stuff Sucks’ Binky is selling for 5K. This jackass is making a fortune and is known as a pop artist who claims to ‘ never read comics’ , yet he copies comicker’s work over and over again in such a blatent way, it’s apparant he doesn’t give a crap. The morons buying this stuff for big money have no clue that it’s not original.

    Read the Wikipedia bit on him and accusations of plagiarism. It’s growing daily. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Todd_Goldman

    Man, it must be international plagiarism week.

    I think this is my favorite haiku yet.

    OH, and:

    Chocolate delight
    Devour the sense of hearing
    Inaudible sweets

  10. calan Says:

    Easter chocolate
    bunny is without his ears
    the world has gone mad

    pretty good for a first attempt

  12. calan Says:

    starguy: correction, awesome first attempt. 🙂

  13. Seraphine Says:

    I don’t know why I
    didn’t notice GingerDead’s
    missing his ears too!

  14. Rodro Says:

    Sugar, Chocolate
    Break through my skin to reveal
    Hollow place for milk

    hehe i always used to bite off my easter bunny’s ears and pour milk inside them when i was a kid.

  15. calan Says:

    seraphine – i wasn’t even thinking about that, but you’re right!

    Rodro – i love that haiku! that’s so cute about the chocolate ear cups. hehe. i always went for the ears first but i use them to spoon up some peanut butter. yummy 😛

  16. Jessykalynn Says:

    so i’m not the only one who speaks to the bunny while eating it…

    i also apologize…but then realize that it can’t hear me cause i ate its ears….
