I apologize to all of you who had to register before posting to my blog. Unless you wanted to do so to begin with...in which case I'm posting for no reason.
I love Get Fuzzy. I think it's a brilliant comic strip, but I couldn't tell you why. To me, you've got to appreciate it in the same way you have to appreciate the Family Guy before you can enjoy it. I think it lies in the quirkiness of the characters, and the lengths a reader must go to before they can see the humor. You have to just accept that there is a talking cat that dwells in pessimism; that there's a talking dog that wears a watch and lives happily in his ignorance; that they're both owned by a dude that isn't bothered in the least that his pets are bipedal loudmouths that are plainly ruining his life.
It's also cool because the artist throws in some Wilco shout outs every now and then.
Speaking of musicians that I love, I've got almost a secret passion for Tom Waits. I believe he is probably the most original musician alive today, that is he's creating listenable music while being incredibly wacky and nearly unintelligible. He's just great. For some reason I could listen to him banging on plumbing pipes with a wrench for four and a half minutes and be completely entertained.
What else could I throw in here? Nah, I'm spent.
Happy St. David's Day.
