Calvin grows up

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

In the last year, someone shared a comic on Facebook. It showed a grown up Calvin giving his daughter the Hobbes doll to play with. It was one of the most heart-warming things I’d seen in a while, and I hope that Bill Waterson himself would enjoy it. (Turns out that several web artists have worked in that milieu.)

And now, here is an alternate possibility from the “Gritty Reboots” people.

Why can’t our car ads be this good?

Podcast 9: Superman Movies (Lost Podcast #3)

Sunday, April 21st, 2013


Just in time for Superman’s 75th Anniversary, here is our podcast about the Superman movies.  It was recorded in early forgive my foolish yearnings at the end to see a Green Lantern movie.  This is probably the best-sounding and most ambitious podcast, although I actually didn’t bother to go through and remove ums and ahs like I usually do.. It has music and I learned some new Adobe tricks.  Believe it or not, the original MP3 file of this 75 minute recording was 108 megs!  I shrunk it down to 18, but it’s still huge.  I hope this will tide you over for a little while.

This will be the last of our Lost Podcasts, and Erik and I will be recording some new material soon.  What do YOU want us to discuss?  Leave a note in the comments!

How do the physicists afford the apartment?

Sunday, April 7th, 2013

From the Facebook page of ComicsPriceGuide.comWaitress Physicist

While the two physicists are smart enough to pay all of their bills on time and not with credit cards, Penny clearly has problems with money and does not pay her bills with the same regularity as Sheldon and Leonard. Her apartment, while in the same building, is not the same at all. It is a single bedroom apartment with one bath, a closet and a living room and kitchen combo. The boys’ apartment is a two bedroom, one bath apartment with at least three closets and a significantly larger living area/kitchen combo. These differences would make Penny’s apartment slightly cheaper then Leonard and Sheldon’s. This coupled with the fact that she clearly can just barely pay for the apartment does lend a fair amount of realism to the idea that they could be neighbors.
