And then “Free Bird!” “FREEEEE BIIIIRRRRD!”

Gil Thorp, 7/11/07

Ha ha! Oh, man, the Gil Thorp summer hijinks are getting started even more quickly than I could have hoped! I’m totally in love with Gail Martin, the “rock and roll Carole King,” as she was called yesterday; truly, nothing shouts “rock and roll” like a collared shirt and a long braid that you clutch dramatically to your chest while you belt out your non-hits and your banjo player grooves behind you. This looks exactly like the kind of scene where a brawl would break out, and I look forward to tomorrow’s weirdly proportioned and strangely angled fisticuffs. Since Kelly has a troubled past with guys with rage issues, this should provide excellent fuel for one of the eleven rapidly crosscut dramas that will be entertaining us until football practice starts up again.

Apartment 3-G, 7/11/07

Ruby’s dialogue says “funny Texan with more realistic ideals of beauty than these supposedly sophisticated New York City girls,” but her solemn expression in panel three, along with Tommie and Margo’s panicked exchange of glances, says “violent feederism.” In two weeks, look for the two of them to be tied to their chairs, their faces smeared with tangy barbecue sauce, begging for mercy, as Ruby says, “Nuh-uh, Maggie, you still only got one chin!”

Ziggy, 7/11/07

If you thought that the sight of a desperate, insane, bald dwarf with no pants jabbering about the dishonesty of inanimate objects while thrusting a fifteen-year-old household appliance at bemused service worker wouldn’t be funny, well, today’s Ziggy is here to be prove you wrong. I actually laughed aloud at this. Ziggy may continue to exist, as far as I’m concerned.

As I look at it more, I’m sort of hypnotized by the text in Ziggy’s word balloon. The symmetry between the sentence-initial “i” (lowercase, in defiance of all known typographical conventions) and the final exclamation mark, makes it look like he’s actually shouting “T lies!” in Spanish. Which, for my money, is even funnier.

Luann, 7/11/07

I’m only marginally less sick of Brad-Toni than I am of Curtis-Michelle, but this sequence is growing on me. If Toni ends up running off with uberskeeze TJ because of his cooking (or “cooking”) skills, I will be willing to forgive a lot that’s happened in the last few years.

Dick Tracy, 7/11/07

It just wouldn’t be Dick Tracy if the payoff didn’t include somebody writhing around in pain. This isn’t the optimistic fantasy land of Mark Trail; those eyes aren’t growing back.

Family Circus, 7/11/07

Hmm, what’s the most alarming part of this? Yeah, I’m going to have to say that it’s Big Daddy Keane’s little smile.

Gasoline Alley, 7/11/07

Gasoline Alley: the one comic strip that isn’t afraid to show you how the system is stacked against the white man.

Spider-Man, 7/11/07

In a strip that brought us such epic battles as Dr. Octopus vs. his television, Spidey vs. a bowl-hatted butler, Spidey vs. his own outdated ideas of economics and gender, and, of course Spidey vs. a brick, today’s struggle between J. Jonah Jameson and Larry King may represent a dramatic zenith.

And, finally, I’m sure sexy toast-eating is somebody’s fetish, so:

    Also, are Toni & Brad 21? Old enough for Jesus Juice, in any case…

    I’m amused by what the answering machine could be telling Ziggy that he would assume is a lie. One possibility is it tells him he has no messages. A more amusing one is the messages it replays are horrible things that Ziggy’s “friends” will leave, and Ziggy assumes they are fraudulent pranks played on him by the answering machine.

    having attended about 500 shows where the sound of the audience screaming was totally blotted out by the sound system, i’m kind of shocked that Bob could hear that guy shouting for that song…he must have approached Gail after the first song and said, “Ease up friend, you’re playing that music awfully loud…”

    RE: Kip W said in the yesterthread.

    Oh Anthony doesn’t want April. He doesn’t really have a yearning that can’t be fulfilled by women. What he wants is nothing so messy, but life santized and restricted and bent to his desires. A wife to suit his needs and support his every waking whim. April has a personality and a will of her own. She has yet to be ground down so that all the colour she once had is stripped away and all that is left is a very sanded and very plyable surface that can shaped to his will. Lucky for him the process has just been completed on dear dear Elizabeth. And she’s ready to come off the line.

    Of course under the stern tutilage of her mother and sister, April may yet be taught to appreciate the virtues a proper woman must possess. These virtues of course do not include a will distinct from that of her future husband or mother and certainly not the ability to choose her own partner in life.

    April just needs to wait until some nice local parents pass a picture of their lovely and single son and for Elly to return the favour. She’s pretty so, like Liz, she’ll go quickly. A few legal documents and the deal is done. I wonder how many goats John and Elly will get for their youngest and whether that will make up for her killing Farley.

If “Tarzana Nights” is anything like “Southern Nights”, I’ll find a way to get into the stri[p and slug the drunk dude myself. Okay, as Kaz would say “Ease up, friend.”, it’s only a comic strip.

    Okay, so I’m still working on getting back into the swing of the song snarking. I started on a Family Circus of the Damned-inspired version of Bruce Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia” entitled “Hint of Pedophilia,” but after just one verse (and a relatively tame one at that), I got a little queasy and abandoned the whole shebang. Oh well.

    Instead, I moved on to (DT) Gil Thorpè. The following is based on “Saturday Night’s Alright (for Fighting),” so apologies to Elton John, Bernie Taupin, and everybody everywhere:

    The show is startin’, wanna see Gail Martin
    The rock’n’roll Carole King’s here
    I wanna feel fine, but I can’t unwind —
    The guy behind me’s full of beer

    That big chump’s drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
    And my date says to let it go
    Still I’m quite a sight with my hair high and tight
    A single pearl in my earlobe

    Don’t give me none of your aggravation,
    I’ve had it with your loud requests.
    “Tarzana Nights” might start me fighting,
    Get me bruising up my fists.
    You annoy me more than a barky stick
    Whacking on my head all night.
    ‘Cause “Tarzana Nights” will start a fight
    “Tarzana Nights” — We’ll fight, we’ll fight, we’ll fight!

    Tarzana! Tarzana! Tarzana!
    Tarzana! Tarzana! Tarzana!
    Tarzana! Tarzana!
    Tarzana Nights, we’ll fight!

    “Tarzana Nights” seems to be a famous story by Frank Bonham.

    So…I’m pretty ashamed. My comments are never good enough for COTW or even runner-up, but they’re good enough to be on “Coffee Talk with Smelly.” I’m actually kind of disappointed that she posted my comment:

    To Oasis, Michigan, from a few days ago, who asked why Lynn hated April: the reason is that April is not modeled after one of Lynn’s own children, so she is the scapegoat. She’s also the only one who has any semblance of a personality. She’s also the only one who cares enough to visit Gramps out of anything other than guilt and obligation. She’s also the only one who cares about the pets. She’s also the only one who cares about anyone other than herself. The elder two children (can’t really say “adult children,” can we?) are as self-absorbed as Johnston herself is. If April were a real person, I’d pray for her to get out of town before Mom Elly tries to set her up with another doormat (such as Dee or Blandthony). Maybe she can continue to cultivate her own, non-needy, interesting personality with her relatives in Manitoba.

    If I were one of Johnston’s kids, I’d cry at the way I’d be portrayed at this strip.

    And I know we all LOVE to demonize Paul, but I’d say he dodged a bullet. Bent over backwards to please Miss Perfect, and then all of a sudden gets labeled a cheater, and the inherent racism of “he belongs with his own kind” is just too disgusting to even think about. Anti-miscegenation much, Lynn?

    Her response was:

    FC — (1) “Is this what it’s like to be on a date, Daddy?” “Unfortunately, in my experience, sigh, yes, Dolly.” (2) “Is this what it’s like to be on a date, Daddy?” “You say that to all the boys, don’t you?” (3) “Is this what it’s like to be on a date, Daddy?” “Not till I cover you with ketchup and pick up my knife, Dolly.” (4) “Is this what it’s like to be on a date, Daddy?” “Only once you pick out the most expensive item on the menu, Dolly.” (5) “Is this what it’s like to be on a date, Daddy?” “Just what are you proposing, Miss?” (6) “Is this what it’s like to be on a date, Daddy?” “Yes, Dolly, this is exactly what it’s like on a date. And if you’re ever with a boy, and it’s in any way different from this, start screaming for the police as loud as you can.”

Same problem with JP, and same answer, but it’s Abbey’s sweater puppies in that one. Let me tell you, there’s damned little here for straight women.

    3 — Nonsense, MyEvilTwin! Cousin Ruby’s always got a constant stream of barbecue going. Them Texans take their barbecue seriously. All she had to do was unplug the two Crock Pots of ribs she had going overnight, borrow a third Crock Pot from her neighbor for the tri tip she had in the oven, and take the cold chicken wings and leftover pulled pork and beef brisket out of the fridge and put them in a cooler. Sadly, the marinated steak she had set to grill had to go back in the freezer, ’cause those New Yorkers probably don’t even have a hibachi.

    TSA was a little upset about all the carry-ons, but no one comes between Ruby and her barbecue.

    The cabbie took the long way to the apartment, but Ruby didn’t mind because it allowed her to warm up the ribs and tri tip by turns using a cigarette lighter adapter for the Crock Pots.

    I love today’s Dick Tracy. He’s like an artist working in the medium of injured thugs. In this piece he’s created a “See no evil, speak no evil” tableau, apparently by choking one thug and blinding the other. Presumably to their left outside the frame, there’s another thug with ruptured eardrums.

    Also, GT – it looks like shouting “rock” fan is also trying to send his request telepathically, as his fingertips-to-the-forehead pose is the Professor Xavier approved manner of conveying thought messages. Perhaps Bob is a mutant.

A date is when you sit and have a meal with someone that you most likely aren’t going to like and you feign interest in each other’s lives despite the fact that you have nothing in common and would both most likely rather be doing something with your friends of the same gender. Why would you do this, you ask? Mainly because celibacy really isn’t that much fun.

She has far less emotional investment now in the strip than most of her readers, I think she’s just marking time until her contractual obligations run out – hence the deterioration in characterization and plot. So #43, I don’t think she hates April, she’s just taking the path of least resistance to move all her characters to a plodding obvious wrap-up. It’s all a foregone conclusion – Liz and Granthony, Mike’s succesful fulfilling career, Elly and hubby beaming proudly as they fade into their twilight years, blah blah. My real problem is why I just don’t stop reading the damn thing.

    I laughed so hard at this I stopped breathing for a minute. It might be due to alcohol. It’s my birthday too, Josh! What a strange way to spend one’s birthday, with Gil Thorp and the girls of Apartment 3-G. But I’m not sure anyone has a better plan. I look forward to Spiderman vs. prolonged syndication disputes.

    Re: Dick Tracy…. I haven’t been following this storyline lately, but… in that first panel, is our heroic cop wearing the face of an elderly man, Hannibal Lecter-style? The woman seems convinced enough that she was really looking at her granddad until Tracy took off the face, so he probably didn’t get this mask at the local Halloween-all-year-shop. In fact, the more I look at this strip, the more it resembles the infamous scene in “Lambs” with the two dead guards. Man, the tactics the police’ll use nowadays. Good thing Locher self-censored this strip: the sight of gaping bite wounds in the third panel and blood and eye jelly running down Tracy’s chin in the first might have a bit too much for the kiddies.

    Not being terribly familiar with the character, I can’t give him a name, but: why is the guy in panel two of Dick Tracy wearing Two-Face’s suit?

    Harvey is going to be pissed.

    FC–For those who remember The Dysfunctional Family Circus, we might be thinking about the role about Daddy’s “special friend Uncle Roy”. Is Daddy using Dolly as his beard to conceal the special realationship between himself and Uncle Roy? Have Daddy and Uncle Roy been to the Castro district (and been joined in union by Mayor Gavin Newsome)?

    If we want to see some real fireworks in the Family Circus, Uncle Roy would appear, Daddy would embrace Uncle Roy and Uncle Roy would move in with Daddy and Mommy leading Dolly to say, “Uncle Roy lives with us. That’s why he’s a home-sexual.”

    I’m surprised that the thugs in Dick Tracy are getting off with, respectively, a choking and a blinding. That’s really merciful. Normally DT bad guys must die, and die in horrible ways.

    Wait a second… As if the Archie anomaly wasn’t strange enough, Josh’s second Gil Thorp link ALSO contains a dimensional anomaly. COULD THESE ANOMALIES BE ONE AND THE SAME???

    WHAT IF MOOSE’S FEET ARE EVEN AS WE SPEAK LODGED IN THE THROAT OF AN UNRULY GAIL MARTIN FAN???
