Non-pharmaceutical Psychotropics

Posted by Dirck on 11 August, 2017

I have a friend who starts a lot of conversations with “you know what’s weird?” We have come into gentle dispute on this topic, as I don’t find the failure of a cat to sleep through the night or the way sales tax applies to clothes really qualifies as weird.  I usually offer a counter example, like magnetic putty, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, or the US healthcare “system,” all of  which prompt her to suggest that the use of the word has shifted among Millennials (of which she is not one).

Be that as it may– this week’s film is weird.

Of course, this would be more amusing if world events had not taken their current turn, but let’s enjoy the mild dissociative state old cartoons induce, eh?

That’s What Friends are For

Posted by Dirck on 10 February, 2017

This week, somewhat out of the blue, a friend sent me a couple of videos.  They’re… odd.  Almost Gahan Wilson cartoons granted movement.  I feel well inclined enough to them to share… but in much the same way I spend a couple of weeks wandering the nigh-deserted streets of the windswept city asking passers-by if they had read Sutter Kane.

Consider that a warning.
