I’ve done a cardinal before, and I don’t usual do repeats, but I have a friend who is going through some stuff,  so I’m going to surprise her with a cardinal.

This is an unusual piece, because usually when I do something monochrome, it’s all in pencil, but this guy is all paint.

The gang at Legal Insurrection have some thoughts about Atomic Energy (Science!).

Here be Spoilers.

One of the final lines in 2016’s Godzilla: Resurgence is a quiet and somber reflection that Godzilla is “something we’ll have to learn to live with.” In the final images of the film, we see the figure of Godzilla standing above the Tokyo skyline, a stone creature having been defeated but now made immobile via the coagulants floating in his bloodstream having shut down his nuclear core.

These are powerful words given what the monster in question has done and what he represents. He’s the embodiment of post-Fukushima meltdown fears that the Japanese public holds against Nuclear power and the dangers it represents. The fact that the movie ends on that quote is an incredibly powerful message given the preceding film.

 

Go spoil yourself:
