Geezer Alert and Bonus Geezer Alert

Cidu Bill on Jun 28th 2017

Carl Fink sent me this with the comment:

I know the song “Girl from Ipanema” but I didn’t associate it with its Brazilian composer, because I’m not a jazz or bossa nova fan. I’ve really only heard various cover versions. I don’t know that I had ever heard of Jobim and I’m a 55-year-old who likes the song. Would anyone under 40 who isn’t a music nut have a chance?

Jobim died in 1994. I had to look up “Jobim” to figure out what the heck was going on, though I could guess once I figured out the not-very-close song lyric parody.

“Didn’t we just run a Girl from Ipanema comic here?” sez I.

“Yes,” sez he, and he reminded me by sending me this link. Which is also a Loose Parts strip, which suggests that Dave Blazek really does like the song.

I get that it’s hot and it’s June. Beyond that, they’ve lost me.

I’m pretty sure this is going to require an Arlo tag once somebody explains it…

IBB, The Next Generation [OT]

Cidu Bill on Jun 23rd 2017

I just got an angry e-mail from an attorney telling me “my” daughter is claiming he’s representing her in an injury lawsuit when in fact he is not.

I grew suspicious because I have two sons.

So clearly, Idiot Bill Bickel’s daughter also doesn’t know his  e-mail address.

This will never end.

Personal Super-Synchroniciy

Cidu Bill on Jun 19th 2017

A couple of days ago I found myself in the middle of a group of twenty-to-thirty people, all walking together to what I later realized was a Saturday evening showing of Wonder Woman at a monstrously-large London iMax: I counted two Jokers (both new-school), half a dozen Harley Quinns at various levels of sluttiness, two Spider-Men, a Captain America, and other various characters. Oddly enough, only one Wonder Woman.

Ich bin zurück gekehrt [OT]

Cidu Bill on Jun 19th 2017

Back from Germany. Actually, back from Germany and England, but they speak something similar to English there.

Our thanks to Kilby (who, it turns out, actually does have a first name, and it’s the same as Columbo’s), for showing us around Berlin and the surrounding area. I have to be honest: since we hadn’t planned on leaving the city, I hadn’t even known Sans Souci was anywhere near Berlin. 

Now to handle some all-important CIDU matters (and do laundry)…

The Great Escape [OT]

I don’t seem to be able to upload a video here. I also apparently don’t know how to link to a specific Facebook post.

So if anybody wants to spend six minutes and one second watching something I found entertaining, you can pop over to my Facebook page.
