Great suggestions...
THU, 6/6/02, 4:14 p.m. - In Response To: kabuki soundtrack (Jeff the unsinkable cheerio)

...from everyone so far.

Actually, I love NIN. Probably my favorite band. I was listening to NIN contantly while I drew Circle of Blood.
I'm glad NIN seemed like the right choice for you too.

Hey David,

i dont know if you said anything about this or not, but what kind of music will be in the movie...yeah i know, you are sick to death of questions about the movie. funny thing is i was going to ask you somehting about the movie when i saw you guys at the mid ohio last year, but there was this big dude talking to ya and was like, so do you get sick about people asking about the movie??

so i just shut up and bought a print from Ahn :-P.

anyhoo, you need to get Trent to do the score for ya, little NIN action would just kick ass and fit so well, plus you are a big fan so you could work with trent.

i dont know if i could handle the level of awesomeness that would be on screen.

anyhoo, you prolly cant give out info about it, but thouhgt i would ask anyway.


Re: NEWS: Noh mini-masks in Nov. 2002
THU, 6/6/02, 4:25 p.m. - In Response To: Re: NEWS: Noh mini-masks in Nov. 2002 (David Thornton)

They sent the prototype of the mini-masks to me to approve, and I must say that these are very cool. I'm looking forward to them.

The regular masks sold out quicker than expected. I was concerned because not everyone was able to find them, so I asked Moore if we could do more. But they said that they offered the larger masks as a limited run item, so that they really couldn't go against that and make more, even though we all knew people were looking for more of them.

So doing the miniature masks was our way making new Kabuki masks available. Obviously it is not the same thing as having the full size mask, but it is actually a very cool idea in its own right. And definitely easier to get all eight masks this way.

I have the Kabuki SICKLE!
THU, 6/6/02, 4:30 p.m. - In Response To: Re: NEWS: Noh mini-masks in Nov. 2002 (David Thornton)

Recieved the prototype [of the Kabuki Sickle] this week! I cannot tell you how cool this is.

After drawing it in the books so many times, it is so bizarre to see it as an actual piece of reality. It looks amazing. It has its own presence. Sort of like it is alive. The weight of it and the feel of it is something. And you can't even tell that the handle unscrews to reveal the chain connected inside. This was a very bizarre experience.

Maybe I can take some polaroids and post them.


Another image of the first mini-mask set (shipping in September 2002) was added to -- (size: almost 2 MB)

"Moore Creations, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of yet another stellar product based on David Mack's award winning comic, Kabuki. Representing four of the eight NOH assassins from the comic, these miniature versions of the previously released larger, full-sized masks come packed in a beautiful dragon pattern brocade box lined in black silk. Each mask measures approximately 3" in height and can either be hung by the ribbon across the back or an additional ornament hook just below the top lip in the back on the forehead. Don't be left in the dark by missing out on these miniature marvels. Also, keep an eye out for Set 2 scheduled to ship in October which will complete the set."

I love every song and CD Trent has done. Even the covers (remember the Joy Division cover he does in the Crow Soundtrack). I love the new CD too. I love how it keeps evolving. Its a great journey and growth in his music. I can listen to it over and over and it helps me focus when I'm in a focussing mood and it can get me really physical if I'm in that kind of state as well. Great music to excercise too and to paint to.

I used to have a thing for ruiner. It had a real Kabuki feel to it when I was doing COB.

I also like POE a lot. Love her new album. There is a song on there that really puts me into a Kabuki frame of mind. Its called CONTROL.

Hey, just doing what I can to warp the world, one cd at a time. [:D] (ok, 3 in your case, but you're special [;)] )

So out of curiosity David, what is your fovorite NIN album? Song? I never got into much of anything after Perfect Drug, but I love everything up to, and including, that. If I had to pick a favorite though, it would be PMH but followed closely by TDS and Broken.

As for an individual song...A Warm Place always did something to me... sometimes I'll put in on repeat and listen to it for hours...that song seems to speak to me... I hear unspoken words telling me that everything will be alright, it comforts me. Anyone else have a song like that? Or am I just a psyco that hears things that aren't...

Re: Question for Mack: Lee's Comic signing or Beij
FRI, 6/7/02, 5:50 p.m. - In Response To: Question for Mack: Lee's Comic signing or Beijing? (Leee)

Go to Beijing instead. I expect to return to the Bay Area at Oakland's Wondercon next year (April I think). Hope to see you there!

Thanks for reading my work!


Here's my dilemma: I'm likely to go to Beijing in September for 3 weeks, thereby missing your signing at Lee's, something I'm down about because the Bay Area missed you last year and I've only recently had the chance to appreciate your work. Seeing as my trip to Beijing is fairly set for September, is there any hope of getting to meet you in less than a year's time (i.e. conventions, other in-store signings, etc)?
