Everyday Simpsons Quotes besides "D'oh!"

I love lists. Here's a fine one put together by A.V. Club. I love how they've taken the time to write out in what context the line was said and how to use it in real-life and how it can be adapted to various situations.

I use a couple almost daily.

Quote: "Everything's coming up Milhouse!"
Episode: "Mom And Pop Art" (4/11/99)
Context: Milhouse utters these immortal words in joy when the rolled-up cuffs of his "flood pants" keep his cuffs "bone-dry" after Homer floods Springfield as an elaborate piece of conceptual art. Beat that, Christo!
Real-life uses: Useful for celebrating any lucky, unexpected sequence of events, no matter how comically minor or insignificant. (Note: this phrase need not be reserved solely for people actually named "Milhouse.")

I know that there's no way that this list could be complete but I can't believe Grampa Simpson's "A little for column A and a little from column B" didn't make the list.

The Tick Coming to DVD

It's finally happening, I've been waiting for the animated Saturday morning series of The Tick to come out on DVD since before TV shows have been on DVD. I've been to numerous comic conventions and picked up the bootleg version of the show. I always ended putting it down telling myself I didn't have to settle for a crappy VHS copy and that they'll eventually put out a legit DVD copy.

No details so far other than late August 2006 release. Just in time for my birthday!

SPPPOOOOOOOONNNN!!

Welcome To The Bank of Wal-Mart

Why is it when the alarm clock went off this morning the story of 8 dead bodies found in a field was slightly less alarming then when I heard Wal-Mart is trying to get into banking. Just thinking someone could be uttering the phrase, "Welcome to the Bank of Wal-Mart" makes me nauseous.

Wal-Mart insist that it doesn't want to get into consumer banking but I'd imagine like many others that once they get their foot in the door that will be the end of it.

The company insists that consumers and retail banks have nothing to fear and is pledging to stay out of branch banking and consumer lending

I'm not a fan of the banks in general with all of their bloated service charges and convience fees I just start sweating when I think what will happen if Wal-Mart enters this world.

Cartoonist Burnout

A great article on cartoonist burning out. By posting this I am not comparing myself to them or trying to draw any pity. I just found it a really interesting article.

I only do 2 comics a week which take between 2 to 3 hours a piece. I work six days a week and on average work 45-50 hours with another 10 hours of commuting on top of that. I tried doing a comic everyday and that lasted for about a month and a half. If I didn't work Saturday's and abandoned the little TV I watch I could probably keep up the output of a comic a day.

Luckily I haven't suffered any burnout yet. This week I was late posting but I still managed to post on the day I said I was going to. I have a stack of ideas ready to go at the corner of my desk. Sometimes I find it hard to unwind from my day job and be in the right frame of mind to start drawing (that's why I was a little late posting yesterday).

Wiley Miller of Non Sequitur has some great points:

"Heavy lifting is easy, picking up a pencil and paper and being creative is another matter entirely. Don't believe me? Try it.... Then, after you're finished, imagine having to do 364 more of them this year."
"Our deadlines aren't so much immediate as incessant. You know, the sort of thing that makes postal workers come to work with an Uzi one day."

Family Guy on South Park

Believe it or not there are a few people out there who hate family guy.The Simpsons have taken their well deserved shots at Family Guy as well as Mad Magazine. Now you can add South Park to the list.

When questioned about the meanest thing anyone ever said to them, Stone replied 'When people say to me, God, you guys have one of the best shows on television. You and Family Guy. That fucking hurts so bad', to which Parker agreed: 'Very well said. It's such a kick in the balls.

My Apologies

I could blame day light savings or that the amazing race was on yesterday instead Tuesday or a number of other things. I tried to crank out a comic yesterday but my head just wasn't in it. I guess that was bound to happen sooner or later because I leave everything to the last minute.

I will post a comic later today but I will be cutting pretty close to the end of the day.

Marshmellows and The Junos

Fear not your comments on my latest comic have not forced me into to hiding. I've just been busy, oh too bad. That means there will be unsatisfactory comic tomorrow, enjoy!

Did anyone catch the Juno's on Sunday? I generally stay away from all awards shows because of many reasons (self congratulatory, boring, too long...). I still like to check in on the Junos from time to time because they have the best approach out of any awards show out there. They treat it as a concert. You can actually buy tickets at ticketmaster. They only hand out a handful of awards while squeezing as much live performances into a two hour time frame.

I'd point out Buck65's job as host/DJ, Broken Social Scene's performance, and Jan Arden's seal eye lid bra comment as the highlights of the evening. On the other side, what were they thinking when they asked Pamela Anderson to host (gotta love how she got booed for her seal clubbing remark). Also I could've done without all the Canadian Idol's being jammed down my throat.

Kalan Porter is the weirdest looking women I have ever seen.

[Link] - a pretty decent summary of the evening except for the dig at Broken Social Scene. They sounded great.

ps. anyone who can find the video of BSS from the Juno's let me know and I'll post it. Till then here's some cool pre-Juno's Video's
