Seems to be on my mind

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

Today’s sad news is that comics legend Harvey Pekar died, which hits me much more than general celebrity deaths. All the news articles I read today are short and garbling the details. This one is okay. I think it is most worthwhile for the second David Letterman clip posted. Not the Last Time on Letterman one, the other one. A crazy and heroic dismissal of Letterman.

The Pekar comic of his that comes up first when I think of his work was a page or two called Making Lemonade, which just showed him doing just that. Then enjoying a glass. I think it had a transformative effect on my mind, like “What?! Can… can you do a comic like that? But… nothing happened!” Seeing the beauty and magic in the everyday.

The Pixies album Come on Pilgrim keeps popping into my head after my Scott Pilgrim reread last week (so good!), and thus mutating into Come On (scott) Pilgrim.

Have you been following along with the 30 Days of Plant Comics? Those updates will continue on for the rest of July. I still need to figure out what I am going to do for the July installment of my Year 40 Project.

And there are a couple more Page 100s:
The Road by FHNavarro (scroll down a bit for the English version)
Game of Thrones by Brian Evinou
Hey those are both excellent books that I have actually read!

More Page 100 Project!

Hey neat, someone else attempted a Page 100: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress from Jason Rainey. I will have to keep a list of these things somewhere. I actually started working on another one the other day.

Another Page 100

I did another Page 100 Project page, from Nicholson Baker’s “The Fermata” You can see it over here until I get a proper venue set up for these.
