I blame your prepress stress.* Nice mutton chops, by the way. Will you go full 18th-century whaler? Christopher Baldwin April 19, 2019 at 9:23 am 4 years ago Thank you, @Martin! Fixed! And no, I won’t grow them out much longer. Just let them get a little fuller. Just for fun, and until I can’t stand them, which usually isn’t a very long time. 🙂 Peter Rogan April 19, 2019 at 11:35 am 4 years ago Barber’s Adagio for Strings in E major typically brings up “Platoon” imagery in people of a certain age. Me, I like presenting Barber’s very early score for his overture to Sheridan’s “The School for Scandal” (Op. 5) to people unfamiliar with Barber and asking them what Star Wars film it comes from. Gets them every time. Sorry to hear about the stress preprint puts you through. I was a magazine editor many years ago and I find the compulsion to seek and correct errors has never left me, in whatever job I’ve had. And in my personal life, something I have to control, else I might point out your sixth panel misspells ‘cinematography.’ But life is too short, you know? Christopher Baldwin April 20, 2019 at 11:32 am 4 years ago @Thank you! Fixed! And exactly! You hear it and think “Platoon.” But seeing it live, the WHOLE thing, was so amazing. I wish I had no associations with it so I could just hear it pure for the first time. 🙂 Peter Rogan April 20, 2019 at 6:20 pm 4 years ago Actually, I was familiar with the Adagio in E before the movie. And so I have always associated it with funerals. It is the quintessential sound of pathos. That and “The Death of Ase” from Grieg’s “Peer Gynt”. If you want to be depressed, listen to them together, and lose the ability to rise from where you sit. Steven April 19, 2019 at 12:21 pm 4 years ago I for one am in favour of the mutton chops. I just have a full on beard that isn’t allowed to grow out much. My barber who is also the banker and COO of this place refuses to let it. *sigh* Enjoy while you can. Sengkelat April 22, 2019 at 3:37 pm 4 years ago Isn’t lithography drawing just like drawing with crayons, except all the crayons are black? I honestly don’t understand how lithographs turn out so well given how they’re made. Unless something about the printing process turns crayon drawings into pure awesome. Or maybe it’s that only artists of a certain skill are willing to commit to having their art literally etched into stone?
