    Particularly at 4 to 7 am when time moves much slower than forth the regular human achievements.

    Arlo and Janis presents: Understanding Comic Strips for Dummies


    I would really think no one needs a primer such as this, but I’ve read enough comments from people over the years that clearly don’t “get it” that maybe some people do need help

    Check out Understanding Comics and Reinventing Comics by Scott McCloud. It looks like Arlo has. And if these were mentioned yesterday, sorry for the repeat.

    As an actor, I have no trouble performing this sequence in real time. All it takes is a reasonable level of pre-caffeine slow-brained thoughtfulness and you can do quite a bit more than this in the span of one long sentence. Watch what Meryl Streep does in the kitchen scenes in Bridges of Madison County, or how much housekeeping Jack Lemmon gets done in one sentence in The Odd Couple.

    That Jimmy, he doesn’t lean against or or breaks the 4th wall; he gleefully deconstructs it.

    It doesn’t help matters that the size of comic strips has been reduced nearly 40% over the last 20 years. I miss the days when Harold Gray and Walt Kelly were able to fill a whole page with wonderful wackiness…

    P3 – yesterday I thought the joke was he was just doing something entirely different while talking. I thought he was using a paint roller and holding a can of paint.

    My wife does this all the time. I never knew there was a scientific term for it.

    Oh, I get it, alright. I just have trouble remembering it. I had to go back and re-read yesterday’s strip again. One of the hazards of getting old.
