Happy New Year, everyone!

2016

And an election year… yay. Don’t forget to register to vote. Californians, I’m looking right at you. There’s hope for another chance to vote out the stupid, expensive, and barbaric death penalty we have going in this crazy State. If Governor Moonbeam won’t commute all 745 of them to life without possibility of parole (truly a fate worse than death in our prisons), then it’s up to the voters of California to get this monkey off our backs. More on this as I get it. Thank you for your attention.

Who Dat?

Jeff Corey, M.D.

Oh, goodness, it’s Dr. Jeff Corey, Mary’s forgotten boyfriend.

Jeff Corey, M.D.

Well, apparently not forgotten by her, so that’s good. I wonder if they’ll get married one day. He did ask her a few years ago. I haven’t forgotten, even if Mary has.

(How painful this first post after the demise of Apartment 3G is. I suppose I’ll get over it someday.)

Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 6 of 6 Finale (of sorts)

A3G20151122

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

The Hollow Men, T.S. Eliot

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. Let’s see how horrible it can get. Pretty damn horrible, I would say.

Day 6, last day ever: Oh, for God’s sake. Run it into the ground and leave it to bleed to death, didn’t you Bolle and Shulock? Bolle’s career is over, but anyone who’d hire Margaret Shulock to do anything should remember what she did to Apartment 3G at …read more

Apartment 3G deathwatch: day 5 of 6

A3G20151121

Apartment 3G deathwatch because I can’t go through this alone. We’ve got 6 days of a formerly great soap comic, let’s see how horrible it can get.

Day 5: “So smile, Margo, and move on.” Will these be the words our heroine bestows upon us that we might face the future without fear, regret, or despair? If so, then screw you, Margo. Don’t let the screendoor hit you on the ass on your way out. Bitter? Moi?

Day 4: Finally MARGO! And this is all we get? I’m too numb to be outraged.

Day 3: “Here comes Margo!” God laughs at …read more

Day 3: “Here comes Margo!” God laughs at me and my puny hope that maybe, just maybe, this strip will have a decent ending.

In other strip ending news, Momma (have read) and Lockhorns (dislike) ended today. Thank goodness Comics Curmudgeon is on the job (unlike Shulock and Bolle, alas).

How annoying

Perhaps Margo is right. Am I insane? Margo is ALWAYS right. (click for larger image, by the way)

Perhaps Margo is right. Am I insane? Margo is ALWAYS right. (click for larger image, by the way)

I really hate it when things I’ve given up on get the axe. Apparently, and unless Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos or someone saves it, Apartment 3G is going to syndy comics heaven or something.

It’s really a shame no one cared enough to wrench it out of Bolle and Shulocks rot-inducing hands before they were allowed to run it into the ground. I’ve been begging someone like the new (well, not that new anymore) Dick Tracy team, …read more

Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne on Hulu

Wow! Not “Last Year at Marienbad,” but what is? However, this has dialogue by Cocteau, the brilliant Maria Casares, and there’s nothing better than the last scene with the car! Yow!

Ah, Criterion Collection is a drug and Hulu is the pusher. In a good way.

Can this marriage be saved?

MW20150730

First, Ian invites his new boss over for dinner on the spur of the moment. And this new boss guy is a peach; as we know, a gentleman never accepts an invitation that is offered less than three days in advance for reasons we shall see below. Can this marriage be saved? No.

Then, Ian springs this mess on Toby, who is not happy. Can this marriage be saved? No.

Toby has her own thing going on. Can this marriage be saved? Maybe.

Mmmm, just what I needed

“But none had come close to the scope and profitability of Peanuts. Younger cartoonists took notice. Jim Davis, the creator of Garfield, set out specifically to match not Schulz’s quality but his financial success. In contrast to Schulz, Davis has acknowledged that PAWS, Inc., his licensing arm, takes precedence over the strip itself. In an interview on his Garfield.com website, he states: “I set aside one week each month to focus on writing the comic strip. Once I get in writing mode, the gags can sometimes really flow and I might write 4-6 weeks worth of material in one week.” …read more
