Sunday Funnies


No favorites this week. They're all good. :)

Of course, I still need a translator for the Canadian ones ;).

I can always depend on your appreciation of editorial cartoons. Thanks U.P.!

These were all very good. I even understood them!

If that's supposed to be Rory McIlroy, it really doesn't looks anything like him. But I do remember his up and commence at the (British) Open as an amateur. I kinda felt he would do well, so he deserves his kudos.

I remember hearing of the Canadian polymer cash last year. And just when the world thought our money didn't look funny enough (or ligitimate for that matter), we have to go and make it feel and well, that it can actually 'bounce'? Heh, heh.

Canadian self-flaggelation.: I'm so proud (?!?!?) Okay - I'm, sorry for that one.

Hey, if I understand them, Linda, then anyone can.

Yeah, it doesn't look much like him but I had to include the likeness of Rory. Watching him last weekend was amazing.

And I guess very soon Canadians won't have money to burn. Although I'm not too sure about using silly putty as a national currency.

I like the Clarence Clemons cartoon best. RIP.

Ah yes, I'm with Boom Boom RIP Mr. Clemons.

And don't worry, the Canadians still look perfect! We have short memories. heh heh

He really was essential to defining the E Street Band's unique sound wasn't he?

Oh, that's good, Quirks. So you'll keep coming around?

Gosh my back's in an awful mess after all that self-flagellation business.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
