The next cartoon would be Swing You Sinners!, but I just reviewed that for Halloween and I don’t think it’s been long enough I’d have different feelings about it now. So here’s the next, instead. From the 3rd of October, 1930: Grand Uproar, animated by Seymore Kneitel and Al Eugster. Kneitel’s already shown up here … Continue reading "The Tenth Talkartoon: Grand Uproar"

http://nebushumor.wordpress.com/?p=7301

Someone out there is trying to commit an act of filking. They just know “You’re a weird one, David Lynch” is a killer line and they just have to fit the rest of a song around it. I don’t know which friend it is. But I know there’s one. It’s most likely the same one … Continue reading "A Thought That’s Suddenly Haunting Me As The Christmas Channels Come On And Twin Peaks Ends Its Season"

http://nebushumor.wordpress.com/?p=7286

So you know how that nice high-quality organic peanut butter tastes great, but if you leave it alone for a couple days it separates into a layer of oil and a lump of clay? And then you have to spend twenty minutes mashing them back together when you just want to make a peanut butter … Continue reading "One Great Trick For Organic Peanut Butter!"

Still Not That Flated

http://nebushumor.wordpress.com/?p=7281

I’d like to say how getting my tires replaced was a long merry series of silly incidents. But really, it’s been more of 2017. I mean, this year, you know? This morning they broke into The Price Is Right for the breaking news about Al Franken, and the station had to break into that with … Continue reading "Still Not That Flated"

http://nebushumor.wordpress.com/?p=7277

What if Santa isn’t always cancelling Christmas because he’s kind of a jerk and instead he’s just wracked with the sort of Imposter Syndrome that my whole generation is dealing with all the time? Like, “This mouse wrote something mean in an upstate New York newspaper in September! A competent Santa doesn’t have to deal … Continue reading "Thoughts While Pondering The Year Without A Santa Claus, Plus Trains"

The Eighth Talkartoon: Barnacle Bill; and Betty Boop gets a name (it’s not Betty)

http://nebushumor.wordpress.com/?p=7274

If the Fleischer Studios cartoons have any reputation in the current pop culture it’s “those black-and-white cartoons the animators must have been on drugs when they drew”. They always say this about stuff packed with weirdness and whimsy and more nonsense than is needed. It seems to reflect some need to make alien the mindset … Continue reading "The Eighth Talkartoon: Barnacle Bill; and Betty Boop gets a name (it’s not Betty)"

http://nebushumor.wordpress.com/?p=7272

I apologize for running this so late, but I was dealing with car stuff Friday. I didn’t have the time, or the energy, or enough desire to not crawl into the gap where the old maple tree’s rotted away to curl up to go looking over my statistics. They’re probably close enough now. Might want … Continue reading "Statistics Monday: What November 2017 Did For My Readership"
