Huzzah! I cannot wait! But that doesn’t happen until the end of the month; so in the meantime, enjoy these cartoon blasts from the past. Not my best month, but arguably not a total travesty if you stack it up against, I dunno, FEMA’s response in New Orleans last monthyou be the judge, click on ’em, to see ’em larger and contrasted with tiny photoswhy it’s positively MINUTES of amusement. Now how much would you pay?
Cartoons this month are floating atop a film still from Owen Land’s On the Marriage Broker Joke as Cited by Sigmund Freud in Wit and Its Relation to the Unconscious or Can the Avant-Garde Artist Be Wholed? A 1979 film eloquently described in The Chicago Reader as Two pandas discuss cinema and more while sitting inside a false-perspective black-and-white set. I really don’t think the film can live up to the still, so I’m reluctant to actually see it. Feel free to email me that I’m wrong.
