Why “Guardians Of The Galaxy” Director James Gunn Keeps Working With A “Madman”

Funny quote from this article:
At one point in the film, as Yondu interrogates an alien about a mystical sphere, he was supposed to say “blah blah blah” in the script.
“He was saying something to me and I didn’t want to listen,” said Rooker. “So I changed it to, ‘Blah bluh lee gloo lee blelah bah. Ba bla ba ba be de do. Ba be do. Bala bole be buh bah bah bah.’” He kept going like this for a while. “It was really quite good,” Rooker continued. “People were laughing their asses off [on set]. And then [James] started telling me stuff to do! He started going, ‘Garl golee bowlee bo!’ Oh my god, it was crazy.”

Brian Smith: Art Obscure

LA based artist, Brian Smith, has an instantly recognizable painting esthetic. His dark futurescapes emanate an aura that is both beautiful and alien. Working both in the figurative realm and the abstract arena, he channels a consistent sense of vast expansiveness, even in his smaller works. The inspiration for his transformative painting’s subjects come from a variety of sources. Some of his hypnotic portraiture communicates a subject frozen in a state of metamorphosis- as if simulating the moment of impact from an intense explosion, or the warping effects of time travel, or the painful reconfiguration of a being in a state of shape shifting. Brian’s paintings transport you to a place that is feels cold and isolated. Although I greatly enjoy visiting this foreboding place, it is not an environment I would want to be trapped inside.
