The Internet is Eating Me

No, I'm serious, it is.

Baby’s First Panic Attack

I was driving to get lunch and I started thinking about some crazy life/job/family mess. I immediately noticed that my breathing was different. I started feeling like someone was tightening a wire around my chest and I started feeling light-headed. I pulled into the K-Mart parking lot and just started crying.l uncontrollably for about ten minutes.

I called my mom, who salved the wound for the most part. I’ve been under a lot lately and I don’t think I’ve handled it well. I went back to my office and ate some granola with dark chocolate in it, which made me feel better somehow.

Can I say, dealing with stress is hard, but swallowing it and putting on a happy face is not “dealing with it”. Lesson learned, to be sure.

And to anyone who deals with panic attacks more than once a year? You have my utter sympathy and I wish you the best, because damn, that thing nearly fucking ruined me.

The Official Website of Jimmy Marks

I re-tooled my website a little. Played with the colors, knocked out the individual project “pages” and just went with a continuous stream of collected work. I still need to refresh the writing page but I’m happier with it now than before.

Give it a look!

"Abstraction invites personal interpretation, and the lack of concrete explanations for Doop’s appearance, history, abilities, and language forces readers to create explanations using their own imaginations. The only aspect of Doop that is easy to understand is the “X” on his belly, a visual signifier that connects him to a ubiquitous superhero comic franchise. That X elevates Doop from a weird comic book character to a piece of pop art, taking a commercial product (the X-Men) and twisting it, forcing viewers to reconsider the original idea. The X on Doop’s stomach is like his Campbell’s soup logo, a piece of mass-produced advertising that means different things to different people. Just as Warhol’s soup cans have nostalgic value for people who grew up eating Campbell’s, Doop’s X holds nostalgic value for X-Men comic readers, but instead of being attached to something familiar, it’s attached to something unlike anything else in the X-Men universe."
