I got such a kick out of this:

A Tribute

I have a habit of making post titles a bit ambiguous. Doing that lures in unwary and curious readers! Worked again, didn’t it!

What the hell happened to Bill Watterson, the writer and illustrator of the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip? I and other members of my family used to love that strip. It was a brilliant contribution to the drab newspapers of the day. Here’s a holiday tribute to the man’s work:

Curious as to how this video was made? Go here:

Scalzi, Smeagol, Etc.

I’m pretty fond of John Scalzi. He’s a deft and witty writer, and every now and then I go to his site and see what he’s been up to. This is a sequence of tweets he posted while watching a Lord Of The Rings cable-TV marathon; I thought it was quite amusing, but wouldn’t make much sense if you haven’t seen the movies:

Lord Of The Tweets

Only a few minutes later a dubstep treatment of a Gollum scene which Scalzi had mentioned appeared on Youtube:

Another Thanksgiving

Here’s another good graphic offering from Grant Snider:

I like his work, and you can see more of it here

Last Thanksgiving Day I was at a low point in my life, as documented here:

Thanksgiving 2010

Things are marginally better for me now, thanks to some help from my parents; I lived with them last winter while I tried to figure out what to do with what remains of my life.

I’m solvent enough to maintain a place to live and internet access, like food and water for me.

I’m thankful that my health has been good and that I can eat well, as I have to admit that I cook well! Reading, music, and correspondence with certain distant friends (you know who you are!) keeps me happy.

I hope that whoever wanders by here has a good day today!

Somalia As Beach Paradise

This video is scathing and funny satire, mocking the pretensions of libertarians, tea-partiers, and their ilk who tend to take for granted the manifold benefits of living in a stable but deeply flawed society:

Scenes From My Writing Workshop

I suspect that cartoonist Grant Snider visited my shop one day when I was off at work and sketched some of my tools:

I’m quite fond of Grant’s work; you can see more of it here, and even buy posters!

My Personification Press was given to me by a grateful grove of talking trees!
