Web Wanderings

I am no fan of the cartoon strip Garfield. I have always thought it was inane. Our kids, however, have all gone through an early childhood phase of loving it. From ages 5 to about 12 Garfield has been a favorite to read on the comic page or in book form. Several years ago some creative types started to erase the Garfield thought bubbles in the strip. I thought that was a big improvement to the strip. It was now less idiotic and more surrealistic. The character Jon was now a more forceful caricature of a depressed, sad and lonely person.

There is a new blog site called Garfield Minus Garfield that now erases all words and pictures of Garfield. I now find the strip funny and laugh out loud. It is now a “comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life.” Love it.



I saw this 7 minute movie montage posted over at Tinman’s blog. (I have read Tinman’s blog longer than any other blog. Someday I would like to meet him and his partner.)

The montage was done by Chuck Workman who has done many of them for the Academy Awards show.
