The late Huell Howser interviewed a number of Teardrop Camper afficionados at a gathering in 2003. Very cool vid.

Happy Earth Day

Yep, it’s time again to swab out your car’s tailpipe, cut off the electricity, raise the garage door by hand and pee in the back yard… in the dark.

Whatta buncha ineffectual misdirected feel-good ignorant hoo-hah.

The Lost Thing

Peyton rocks out. Kid’s got the moves.

We’ve posted these before, and they’re entirely awesome .gifs, just like these.

How to collect Birch Water and what to do with it.

What to do with pistachio shells?

What to do with a red-hot ball of nickel and a jawbreaker?

Balls roll uphill on this paper bridge. Pause the vid at 0:20 seconds and scratch your fuzzy head a bit before resuming play. Paper template here.

Horses snoring and farting.

Top image is a character sketch from The Lost Thing. It would have given me nightmares when I was a little tad.

Nancy & Sluggo & Aunt Fritzi

Nancy & Sluggo Creepo

Ernie Bushmiller was one of the most surreal cartoonists of his time, and this is a good example. Nancy’s and Sluggo’s bodiless heads pop up from side-by-side Jack-in-the-Boxes without any indication of who or what flipped open the latches simultaneously or why.

Nancy’s parents never appeared in the comic and their absence was never explained; her only caretaker was her Aunt Fritzi.

Fritzi Ritz was once an elite party girl, a flapper, who predated the Nancy comics by a few years until Bushmiller took over the strip created by Larry Whittington in 1922.  Bushmiller modeled Fritzi after his own fiancée (according to Wiki) and Aunt Fritzi eventually served as Nancy’s benefactor and disciplinarian. We can assume that she recognized Nancy’s psychosis, even though Fritzi was not quaified to raise a child with mental troubles. Although not an ideal model for a young child, Fritzi did the best she could given the circumstances.

[Images found here and here. BTW, Sluggo didn’t appear until 1938, and his last name was Smith – fun facts to know and tell. Related Nancy stuff here.]

Saturday Matinee – The Lost Thing, The Undisputed Truth & The Melbourne Ska Orchestra

Saturday, 11 April 2015

The Lost Thing” is an animated adaption of a picture book illustrated and written by Shaun Tan in 2000.

The Undisputed Truth‘s version of “Smiling Faces” [via].

I never realized it, but “The Theme To Get Smart” is perfect for a ska rendition. Here’s the The Melbourne Ska Orchestra who did just that.

Have a great weekend, folks, and for those of us who are self-employed, it’s time to cough up some b*ks to the IRS f*ks.
