Happy Halloween!

Friday, October 31st, 2014


Julius was ready to give out candy to the trick-or-treaters tonight! We wound up with somewhere between 135 and 140, and a little bit of candy left over at the end of the night.

Glass Prism

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

File this one under “Bands I never thought I’d get to see” – I’ve got my tickets for the Glass Prism concert at the Scranton Cultural Center tomorrow!

(It’s not the first time they’ve played there – they opened for Vanilla Fudge there about 40 years ago!)

They recorded two albums for RCA – Their first album, “Poe through the Glass Prism,” was released in 1969, and featured (as you might expect from the title) the poetry of Edgar Allen Poe set to rock music. “The Raven” was released as a single, and was a big hit locally. They wrote their own lyrics for the second album, “On Joy And Sorrow,” released in 1970, but the sound was still similar – guitar, bass, drums, and organ. From what I’ve read, they’ll be playing a 90-minute set, with songs from both albums, and some new material.

(And hopefully Ebb won’t steal the tickets on me!)

Comic #1581

Monday, September 24th, 2007

Today’s comic is the 1581st in the archives.

(After 1541 and 1571, this one was inevitable! I couldn’t do 1551 because I don’t have one of those, and I didn’t think of it at 1531. And the 1531 is a tape drive, anyway.)

Comic #1571

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

Today’s comic is the 1571st in the archives. So, to mark the occasion…

(Some of you may have been expecting this today after this photo went up for the 1541st strip 30 days ago…)

Comic #1541

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

I just noticed today’s comic is the 1541st in the archives. So, to mark the occasion…
