Jon, Alone

One of the funniest blogs I’ve come across in recent time is “Garfield Minus Garfield” by a guy calling himself Travors. Basically Travors has gone through old Garfield comics, Photoshopped out all of the characters except Jon Arbuckle, and posted the result as is. As Travors states on his site, “Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?” It’s so good that even Garfield creator Jim Davis reads and enjoys it.

Today’s “Garfield Minus Garfield” is especially good. I had to share:

Interesting Things in teh Intrawebz

Funny… the exact same thing happened to me last time I made a handmade book! (No, really. You’ve got to watch that. Click it. Seriously.)

What a neat medium for writing!

There are, to my knowledge, two electronic collections of global libraries are gathering. The grander of the two is the Librophiliac Love Letter, collecting the “world’s most beautiful libraries.” Closer to home is Kimbooktu’s Your Home Library page, where booklovers send in photographs of their own bookspaces. I am looking forward to submitting my own picture, but haven’t yet because my library is being used as an impromptu laundry room right now. You should definitely send in a picture of yours!

Kimbooktu is also collecting links to book blogs, so if you keep one, let her know.

Craig detailMelissa Jay Craig, who makes beautiful, ethereal sculptural books, has posted her most recent work. It’s all toadstools! I’m just sort of in love… my family has always said that they found me under a toadstool, and if I were going to live under a toadstool, these would be the toadstools I would pick. 🙂

Take a minute to check out the Rag & Bone Blog’s coverage of Chris Natrop’s beautiful work, with photos.

What a nice, simple, elegant, wonderful idea: plant a tree for every book you read. It costs a dollar per book/tree.

Book Patrol shares a picture of one of the most fun bookshops I’ve ever seen.

Did you know that when you refer to something as a thingamabob, you may require a brisk soapy washing of the mouth?

Ah, what a difference a vowel makes:


For those of you who are writers, these Keyboard Characters might liven up your desktop and provide you with a little uncritical company.

Okay, that’s enough for now. Happy surfing!

Prep for NaNoWriMo?

toothpaste for dinner

I’m a Municipal Liaison for NaNoWriMo, but I know I don’t have time to novel this year. It sucks. I guess I’m going to have to give it up, and that’s just a very sad thing.

Loud Baby

I found this cartoon on its creator’s blog vis-a-vis another favorite blog. The cartoon is about the blogger’s baby, who is plainly a future reader of this blog. (How many times can I say “blog” in one post?)

Mood Killer

Today’s comic has slightly adult content, so I’ve put it behind the cut.
