Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

The Evil Spellbinder:

This guy was from the cartoon: "The Adventures Of Letter Man", which was a segment of The Electric Company. I had a few nightmares about this guy, back then.

I liked Letterman, but Joan Rivers's voice always made me want to plug my ears and scream.

I loved the adventures of Letterman. Wasn't that Gene Wilder as the voice of the titular hero?

(Heh-heh...titular.)

I loved, loved loved Electric Company...I need to look up some clips to remind me of why it was so awesome :) Do you remember Zoom?

Yes, it was Gene Wilder as Letterman, with Joan Rivers narrating (and trying hard not to be over the top). I think, IIRC, it was Zero Mostel as Spellbinder. Yes, I used to watch the reruns back in the day.

Hi Joe,
Since this is the latest comic entry that you`ve posted I wanted to pass on this link for an interview from Bill Watterson.

I know you`re a fellow fan.
Feel free to delete this post and add the link to a more appropriate comic strip post

Kimber: Remember Zoom??? yep!

Hobbyfan: Well, she tried not to be over the top, but you know Joan...

Marco: Thanks (c:
