ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I’m with you #7
Is bloodsplatter the new steampunk on bb?

I would like to point this out.
I am a comic artist and, once upon a time, I needed a blood spatter.
So, I googled “blood spatter”.
I used this one http://blog.wired.com/cars/images/2008/03/24/blood_2.jpg
…and so did Amy Lau.
Read the book instead and it may come clearer.
Though there is the possibility that it won’t… it has been widely misunderstood.
Bret Easton Ellis himself said:
It’s not really about Patrick Bateman [the narrator] killing anybody [It's] basically almost a feminist tract.
Oh, and I’m another for whom the incorrect ‘wherefore’ is a pet peeve.
Wow, good find! That seems a trifle unoriginal!
Now the chair just needs to make the Wilhelm scream when you sit on it.
That chair looks a bit…menstrual to me. The stain is just on the wrong part of the chair. Actually selling pre-stained chairs might be a nice way to avoid embarrassment should you actually bleed through while entertaining company.
Wolfiesma: Read the book instead and it may come clearer. It’s a parody (to me).
Also: read up on Mary Harron, you might find that she knows exactly what she’s doing and that you don’t get it. I’m not trying to be combative, just terse. ;)
Isn’t a big part of Dexter’s style that he is always super neat?
if you are considering buying this: GIVE YOUR MONEY TO CHARITY
I wonder what it says about me that I kind of want one of those chairs…
Tsk. Dexter would never leave blood behind like that.
“Wherefore are thou, Patrick Bateman?”
What does his name have to do with it?
I recently watched American Psycho for the first time, yes, after the children had gone to bed, and I found the overall aesthetic breathtaking. All that clean crisp white on white. Visually stunning. But the plot? Not even a post-feminist could defend that.
I sense a theme.
“Wherefore art thou, Patrick Bateman?”
This is one of my language pet peeves. The counterpart to “wherefore” is “therefore”.
Wherefore: for what reason or purpose? Why?
Therefore: for this reason. Because.
The famous “Wherefore art thou Romeo?” line is not asking where Romeo is, it’s asking why he has to have the name he does (specifically his last name, which makes him an enemy of Juliet’s family).
And argh… it lost my fake /OCD tag at the end of the message!
