Random drawing of the day

Sometimes I wonder if I play music just so I can draw posters (which I love doing) or if I draw just so I can play music (which I love doing.)

Either way, I enjoy this stuff.

Don't turn football into footbaugh

The video I had linked to is no longer available so here are some of Boss Limbaugh's quotes which sound an awful lot like racism to me:

Imagine! It was John Lennon's first instrument!

Hooray for Garrison Keillor who pointed out this important fact today on Writer's Almanac:

It's the birthday of John Lennon, born on this day in Liverpool (1940). His parents separated when he was one. His mother came in and out of his life, and he was raised by his aunt and uncle. But his mom taught him to play the banjo and they listened to rock 'n' roll records together.

And thanks to my pal John Lenoch for pointing it out to me.

Rotten Chamber policy causes Apple to exit


Now I have another reason to love my Apple Mac. The company just announced that it's dropping out of the Chamber of Commerce because of the Chamber's anti-science, pro-pollution stance which favors more global warming. Really, it's shameful that the Chamber of Commerce is also a Chamber of Denial. 

I've always thought the name "Chamber of Commerce" is a hoot. How pretentious can you get?Sounds like something out of a Superman comic book. "Superman flew into his Fortress of Solitude because he was super-bummed by the idiocy displayed by the Chamber of Commerce."

Apparently there's this show called Family Guy...

...and they "poked a little fun" at traditional editorial cartoonists. I know this show really exists because many 10-year-olds in the classes I speak to ask me to draw the baby character. Stewie or something like that. I tried to watch it once but decided my sock drawer needed organizing that night and switched it off. Anyhow, over at the Daily Cartoonist blog they posted this vid which instigated much navel-gazing and self-flagellation amongst some cartoonist types. I think it's pretty funny. 

We should start worrying when they stop making fun of us.
