Cartoon Auction

October 10, 2010 | By | 2 Comments

After an operation on Friday and not being able to do anything but look at the ceiling, I finally have some time to update this blog with some news and notes.

It was about the fourth time I’ve needed stitches in my life.  The first was when I was a little kid and needed stitches on my lip.  Afterward, my mom took me to the grocery store and said I could pick out anything I wanted.   I chose grape flavored Hubba-Bubba Bubble Gum, which, to my dismay, I quickly realized I would not be able to chew thanks to my stitched up lip.  Ouch.

Speaking of being a kid, here is a beautiful tribute to the “Peanuts” cartoon by Randall Goodgame.  This song is so delicious, I could eat it for dessert.  The part with the violin is really nice and it also has some really touching lines.  Like these:

“Sometimes I feel like Charlie Brown, all alone up on the pitcher’s mound, like a-hundred runs down.”

-and-

“If you love, be prepared to lose.”

Speaking of cartoons, I was a big fan of Scooby-Doo. The show was great until Scrappy-Doo came along.  What Scrappy missed in height, he made up for in obnoxiousness. However, he had a great spirit about him and could do unexpected things for a little-guy, like jumping great sized fish.  That’s what can happen when desperation meets determination.  Thank you Scrappy-Doo. Here’s to you, Mr. I-jumped-the-shark-before-there-was-a-shark-to-jump-obnoxious-little-guy.

Speaking of Scooby-Doo, I stumbled upon an Ex Scooby-Doo Villian Support Group on Facebook.  Here is how the description reads:

Would you have gotten away with it if it hadn’t been for those meddling kids? Tired of always having your masks ripped off and being exposed for the creepy old man/woman you are? We can help, ESDVSG is here so people like you have a place to come.

Now, THAT (along with Tom Brady is better than Peyton Manning in Football and in Life) is some high quality Facebook group work. Good job people.

Speaking of Tom Brady, the town has been abuzz with news of the departure of Randy Moss.  I think the coverage is a bit overblown. After all, Randy Moss never was Tom Brady’s favorite receiver.

Speaking of tough guys, my friend Kyle recently posted this link and asked if people actually paid to see “Over the Top” in the theater back in 1987? Let me give some background before I answer that question.

“Over the Top” was a great name for this movie. Also impressive was how left-hander Sly Stallone was so powerful with his right hand. Finally, this movie had perhaps the most unrealistic scene of all time when the scrawny son wins an arm wrestling match at the end because he tries hard and listens to his father’s advice.

Anyway, to answer my friend’s question, did I actually pay to see this movie in the theater? No. But, I would have. That’s all for now. Back to work on my poem about pickles.

    What??? Why have you not been showing up in my Google Reader for like, 7 years? Gah! Google, you slay me!

    Okay, maybe that’s a little much, but I’ve been missing out. I apologize for my silence. Darn Google.
