Harvey Pekar, disgruntled and underwhelmed writer of illustrated literature, has passed away at age 70. My hero....gaaaackkk!
If you want a fun way to know more about Harvey Pekar, please check out the hilarious film about Pekar which was made by none other than Robert Crumb and Terry Zwigoff, called American Splendor. It stars Paul Giamatti, of Sideways fame, and it's a hoot, I promise. Now, if you love comix, then you will love the American Splendor series which goes back to the early 80's! (yes, I have them ALL!)
Did you know that Harvey Pekar appeared on the Dave Letterman show a few times and each time, WOW what a scene?! You can find those goofs on youtube... here is just one and it is hilarious! Now what I love about Pekar and what he does best is poke fun at everyday life. One of my favorite schticks of all is when he writes about the strange things people buy, and conversations he overhears while in the grocery store line. There is so much information on the internet about grumpy old Harvey that you could explore, i'm not kiddin'!
RIP Harvey, ya done well. Although.....chances are you'll find somethin' to grumble about in heaven.
Here is my crazy hair. I don't know if I like it or not!
New skirt for my shop and favorite boots.
I would not dye my hair if it were this color, would you?
Shasta daisies, my favorite.
My dahlias. You know, I do not have a green thumb. Thankfully, dahlias come back double. Anyway, I hope you are all having a wonderful summer. I am. I got a new shed made for my stuff. Now Gary will turn my little yurt into a mancave, stay tuned! I told him, Lime, that he needs a pink barbie tv to make the mancave complete. It is all I can do to not make curtains and froofy things for the yurt now that it is empty agian, but that will never do for a mancave! Have A Lovely Day!
So Little Rita wants to dye her hair. Thing is, her hair is this awesome shade of natural honey blonde coolness that no dye bottle color can top, and she's also about to try out for a gig as a junior dance instructor, and wild hair is a no~no. Still, she managed to appease her urge to dye some hair by making me the victim elected candidate.
I will show you the rest after I get the red stuff scrubbed offa my face!
