International Herald Tribune: Perils of success in 'Laid Off Land'

sunil|128.125.228.12|||3|2|27|2002|8|36|32|AM|gimme a break...everyone knows that they are supposed to be actively looking for a job when unemployed and not "charge" for watching cartoons. Clearly he was trading cartoons for cash, and he used sympathy as a catalyst for promoting the trade. In short, you can't have the cake and eat it too. ┐michael?|24.55.15.227|preterosso@adelphia.net|http://preterosso.mine.nu|3|2|27|2002|7|12|32|PM|It certainly better than hounding people on the street for change. As it is in school so it is in adulthood. The system chastizes creativity. Don't want to be a bum, you better chew gum.

The article doesn't mention that the company that laid him off approached him about buying the rights to the cartoon.


Entertain Yourself

mt_banner_small (3k image)Great editorial that gets to the heart of what new media is all about:

"...This lead, for the longest time, to the sad state where only a small number of people decided what the public was going to see. Also, since these same people convinced all of us over the years that ONLY people that they felt were good enough to promote were worthy of entertaining us, that we should not waste our time entertaining ourselves - only paid for entertainment was worthy entertainment. Worked great till the net came along..."

Back of the Bus

I heard this bit of conversation between a couple of guys on a bus last night. This is my first experiment creating my own comic strip.

I'm just reporting the facts. Why is it ok for Spike Lee to use the N word in his screenplays while he finds fault with Quentin Tarentino doing the same thing?

Still, I'm not interested in addressing this issue here so I probably won't leave that comic on my site. It's just the conversation the way I heard it, and I thought it was funny. It just came to mind as a subject when I decided to experiment with making my own cartoon. I'm going to make it a regular feature of my site. The daily cartoon...

Can I think of enough stuff to pull that off? We'll see.
