Losing ground

I hate when that happens!

Vandals!

I worry that the chickens look too much like my turkeys.

Monday Sketchbook: Peeps

Passover is this week. We usually celebrate by watching The Ten Commandments.

I debated about running this even as a sketchbook, but if anyone has had little kids and Peeps in the house at the same time, you've probably experienced this holiday, too.

Sunday best

This gag only works one week in April and one week in October, and then it's only if you're LDS.

As the hearts turn...

An alternative title to this would be, "Looking for love in all the wrong databases."

Big box office

Ever wish you could unsee a movie?

I read the reviews. I knew going in that it wasn't going to be an epic Charlton Heston/Cecil B. De Mille interpretation of Noah and the Ark. But I wasn't prepared for rock monsters, magic seeds, cannons and bad graphics repeating the story of Cain and Abel! It was so close to being a sword and sorcerer-type fantasy movie, I wish they would have taken it one more step and made that film.

Instead we got a meandering, plodding, abrasive movie in search of a genre that was based on names and plot devices suggested by Genesis, and drew on apocryphal sources for supplemental material whenever possible. Not only that, but Russell Crowe sang. Again! Wasn't Les Miserables enough?

On the plus side, there was Hermione.

A lot of folks have said that after seeing this film, they're going to go back and read the story in the Bible, just to refresh their memories. That could be a good thing, right?

Even here in Oregon, theater goers sat in stunned silence when the movie ended. Seriously: dead silence.

It's not the worst movie I've ever seen. But it comes awfully, awfully close.
