Today’s comic was a bit screwed up. I stretched it when i was framing it. Â And I forgot to post it until about 5:30. So I’ll fix it tomorrow. Â That being said, I was happy to draw the characters from Monsters Inc. I love that film. Even amongst the pantheon of brilliant Pixar films I love this film. Â Love, love, love. Â They should do a sequel to this before they do a sequel to Cars. Sadly, that won’t happen. Though I like Cars too.
It’s a cliche by now. Â People say that certain songs make them think of a certain event or time in their lives. Â I always thought that to be sentimental rubbish. Â Until it happened to me the other day. I was at work, innocently chugging along with my daily work when “Wind of Change” by the Scorpions came on. I know it’s corny to like the Scorpions and really, this is the only song I like by them. But I was suddenly seized by a nostalgic rush that made me think of my time living in Germany during the time of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Â It makes me think of Â Ramstein Jr. High School, our house in Niedermohr, Germany and my bizarre (at the time) infatuation with 80’s hair metal music. Â And smoking cigarettes with the dumbest kids alive at the playground across from school. Â And the girl I had a crush on in my history class. Â And my brother’s weird interest in clothing by Starter (jackets, sweatshirts, hats etc.) Â And then there’s the fall of the Wall, itself. Â The younger set these days won’t ever understand what a monumental event the fall of the Wall was. Â The end of Communism, the end of the split between east and west Germany. Â I don’t know if I’m explaining it well but there it is.
There’s been a big hoopla over Charlie Sheen lately. Because apparently he’s crazy and thinks he’s a winner warlock with tiger’s blood or something. Â I’m just going on the record as saying I’m way sick of hearing about him. Â Unless I’m watching Hot Shots or Hot Shots Part Deux on TV, I don’t want to hear about him. Â Seriously. I have spoken.
Okay, so Mt.Rushmore was a really good idea. Take four great presidents and put their faces on the side of a mountain. Â I keep thinking they should make one for nerds. Â Here are the four faces of Mt. Dorkmore:
Spock- Mentioned in the blurb attached to the comic today.
Darth Vader- Need I say more?
Batman- The comic version. Â Not the George Clooney version.
Indiana Jones- And they could put a theme restaurant inside his nose. Neat huh?
Things I Love To Do:
– Read comics on the john
– Make up songs celebrating the (mostly) imaginary homosexuality of my roommate
– Play Uno on X-Box Live
– Fantasize about moving to another city
– Sing cheesy 80’s songs to myself (For example, I’m singing ‘The Final Countdown’ as I type this)
