Freaky megazeux moment #247
Poking at Mall Monkeys as I sometimes do, and seeing Duhreetoh's screenname.

And then brilliantly figuring out that he's responsible for the damned thing. (I'm quick, I know.)

You'd have thought the "written by Eric Drobile/drawn by Eric Drobile" would've sunk in after the first hundred comics. But no.

Happy to see he's become quite the damned fine arteest.

You people have GOT to stop showing up at random megazeuxless moments in my life.

And stop aging, already.

Definitely too old for this, I am.

I'm feeling all kinds of: where the hell's my camera? (I will post NJ pics when it turns up!)
What I hear: You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave the room with the yellow walls

stop contributing to my henleyesque delusions

...no, scratch that, encourage them. Because that comic is For King High Larius. Haven't laughed that hard since I re-read the Deep (and Deeper) thoughts this morning...

http://pencible.tripod.com/dt/dt1-01.htm

Many I'd never heard before, like:

"Instead of trying to build newer and bigger weapons of destruction, mankind should be thinking about getting more use out of the weapons we already have."

or

"I hope they never find out that lightning has a lot of vitamins in it, because do you hide from it or not?"

or

"Instead of a trap door, what about a trap window? The guy looks out it, and if he leans too far, he falls out. Wait. I guess that's like a regular window."

Hmm...I need to stop drinking this yellow stuff that turns thick and crystallizes when you put ice in it. I don't even know how it got in the cabinet. I sure didn't buy it. Why would I drink something in a bottle that I didn't make or buy, and which just showed up? Well, it's not the first time.

Seattle circa 2003 is pretty darn nice, but if I can check out any time I like, do you have any suggestions?

On a dark desert lj, cool wind in my hair; what the hell are colitas? I'm not sure, should I care?

I'm eating these deep thoughts up. Like butterscotch pudding. Only neither as beige nor as sweet!

If the Vikings were around today, they would probably be amazed at how much glow-in-the-dark stuff we have, and how we take so much of it for granted.

Sometimes the beauty of the world is so overwhelming, I just want to throw back my head and gargle. Just gargle and gargle, and I don't care who hears me, because I am beautiful.


Glad you enjoy the comic :) It really freaked me out a little, because the author is a blast from my past. And I didn't realize it until the zillionth comic. I can be a little dense sometimes. I'm sure the deep thoughts will help exercise my atrophied brain!

I always imagine Seattle as some hip happenin' place where everybody has a laptop and drinks coffee in the morning fog, laughing (politely, of course) at the poor schmucks on the east coast. So Seattle is pretty cool. In my mind, at least. Someday I hope to visit.

Upstate NY 2k3 is not very highly recommended. I like it, sure, but my reality is mostly imaginary.

Toronto's a pretty happening city. They all have laptops and drink coffee in the morning sun, laughing (politely, of course) at the poor schmucks in America.

Atlanta's pretty cool, too.

New Jersey is not very highly recommended... but I went there last weekend with friends and had a great time. A truly great time. So I suppose what I find interesting is less the places I go, and more the people I meet.

Of course, a plethora of indiginous potted ficus monsters could only help with tourism. Don't you think?

I highly recommend the Mr. Man series. And Kunstbar is a must-see, if you've ever wondered what Art History class might have looked like if it were presented as a bad acid trip in a surreal bar instead of a dry seminar in a big room (and really, who hasn't wondered that at one time or another?).

heh. Duh's always been a good artist tho.

Oh, definitely. But he's gotten even better, and his portfolio really wow'd me. I'm incredibly impressed.

I just saw his portfolio after posting it.

Floored me. He's _real_ good. I can see him working for top flight effect companies and stuff.

Duhreetoh's definitely a great artist. That portfolio (which I've seen before; I also read Mall Monkeys near-daily) is amazing. =)

I agree!

I can't believe I've read that comic a zillion times and never realized it was Duh's. Someone on my friend's list linked to it yesterday, and I decided to catch up on a few I'd missed. Duh?! D'oh!

I am a dumb old lady! ;)
