What would happen if you wore a Swatch watch today?
It’s a wonder those talented artists at Illustration Friday allow me in their group. The subject this week is CLIQUE. Remember when people thought wearing a Swatch watch meant you were in the “in” group? Well, I still think that way! I just love them, and I must have a dozen of them, mostly bought ...

The mysterious and funny Jones is in my top 8.

Oh, I guess I should say I have lots of great, great friends in MySpace, but some are more special than others. I don’t know who Jones is, and I can’t remember how we became (MySpace) friends. Is he a sitcom writer? A latenight standup comedian? He seems to have a lot of friends from ...

Dilbert isn't funny anymore.
At least in the LA Times. Hello, Dilbert, my old friend. (Can’t link to him on caption: http://dilbertblog.typepad.com/). I know papers are trying to save money. The LA Times is laying off 150 more reporters this month. Really shameful. And haven’t I already been a victim from that?! And so sometimes they shave a sliver ...
