January…

Cidu Bill on Feb 26th 2015

I understand comic strip artists’ desire to recognize important events, even though the three-week lag makes syndicated comic strips a bad medium for it. This one, however, apparently wasn’t even drawn until almost a month after the event. After a point, the ship has sailed.

That being said, it’s a clever cartoon and could have had an infinitely longer shelf life if the text had been something like “stuff you try to censor”

I need to ask a little favor… (OT of course)

Cidu Bill on Feb 17th 2015

I’d like to be able to follow that up with “and it won’t cost a cent,” but unfortunately there would be at least a dollar involved:

As some of you know, my younger son is a graphic designer, finishing his final year at MICA in Baltimore. For his senior thesis, he had to create a mock-up of a magazine. The topic he chose was Chinese food, with a focus on take-out.

But since that’s too easy, he decided to hire writers, artists and photographers and create an actual newsstand-worthy magazine, with articles about the food itself, historical and cultural perspectives, and the like. Along with reviews of a number of Baltimore-area take-outs which, while of limited use to non-Baltimoreans, can serve as a guide to what to look for in a Chinese take-out.

And now that he’s created this thing, he’s just kicked off a Kickstarter to get it printed up and distributed. According to conventional wisdom, a lot of early activity on a Kickstarter brings it to people’s attention. I’m not completely sure how, but I guess I don’t need to. So all I’m asking y’all to do, if you can, is pledge a buck to help fill up the contributors list (or whatever it’s called).

Have you ever wondered about General Tso? Not just the chicken, but the guy? Ever walked into a Chinese restaurant and been amazed by a menu that seems to follow you, from state to state, always exactly the same?

The Singer and the Writer (way OT)

Cidu Bill on Feb 16th 2015

Not long ago, I went with my wife to see a singer in concert. My wife’s favorite, and I was a fan as well. She’s well known to be a Born Again Christian, which is a non-issue as long as she doesn’t try to impose her beliefs on other people and deny them any rights. which she doesn’t. And over the course of the concert, made a point of reminding us several times of her liberal and non-proselytizing ways.

Yes, she was being self-righteous about the fact that she isn’t self-righteous.

And by the end of the concert, the sound of her (unnaturally squeaky) voice was getting on my last nerve, and I still can’t bring myself to listen to her (which is really unfortunately since we already have tickets to see her in a Broadway play next month).

Likewise, I recently got to meet a well-known and well-regarded mystery writer who’s been my favorite for over 30 years. I can understand him being a bit of a grumpy old man, but he was smug, dismissive of those around him, and rude to me personally. I can think of three ways to describe him, each — oddly enough — a synonym for male genitalia.

And now, although I’ve read everything he’s written, I don’t know if I’m going to be interested in his next book: I don’t know whether I can read it without hearing his voice (because what is a book, after all, if not somebody telling you a story?)

The moral? Listen to and enjoy a singer’s songs. Read a writer’s books. The people behind them might not be as worthy of your respect.
