Happy Thanksgiving

Always good memories on this day, especially, gentlemen. Amazing to think of those Thanksgivings hosted in saintly cities. Hope your holidays have all been great, with good ones yet ahead. And very soon forty. Happy Thanksgiving! A raised toast to you all!

Comics, Take 2

Garfield, I haven’t come back to in appreciation yet.  I still think it’s pretty juvenile.  While I hope my kids find it and love it like I did, I also hope they outgrow it 😉

This and tomorrow’s entry do something to Garfield that makes it interesting, much more interesting than it would be on its own.

I present: Garfield as Garfield.

Peanuts Without the Last Frame

I’ve had three phases of my life in relationship to Peanuts.

  1. Elementary School Years, I checked out as many Peanuts books as possible and devoured them
  2. Adolescence and Early Adulthood, I didn’t really get the Peanuts and thought they were childish artifact
  3. Adulthood, I have a new appreciation for the Peanuts

One thing that has helped my appreciation of comic strips are projects like this, and I’ve got a few more to share in the upcoming days.

Pale Green Ghosts

Another streaming album I discovered yesterday by John Grant, and haven’t listened to more than once.  However, what I heard makes me want to listen to it more.  It’s got complexities and textures to the songs…I found myself being won over by songs I didn’t think I liked at first by the end of the last notes.

I thought I shouldn’t be afraid to talk about it, as there are lots of people in my situation, who feel like outcasts in society, people who had addiction problems, who feel ashamed and unlovable because of it,” Grant said in a recent press release. “I want these people to know they have someone on a stage who is dealing with this too.

Let me know what you think about this, and I’ll try to add my own thoughts after I’ve had a chance to give it a listen.
