A musical version of “Star Wars.”
Too many bad actors?
How about Congress doing the jail scene from Chicago?
Too many critics if you ask me
It’s both a tragedy and a farce. As Twain wrote, “a grotesque and foolish dream.”
Brilliant strip, absolutely brilliant!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor playerThat struts and frets his hour upon the stageAnd then is heard no more: it is a taleTold by an idiot, full of sound and fury,Signifying nothing.
It’s improv, Calvin.
Hobbes channeling Marx, and I don’t mean Groucho. Good for him.
I think musicals have fallen out of favor since Gene Kelly hung up his dancing shoes.
Special Effects: If I can get through the drama at work on Monday without my boss’ face turning purple, I’ll consider it VERY successful.
“We need less drama and more comedy….or more science fiction.”
I would gently remind all of the above that we get the government we deserve. We elected all of them ! They mirror us…..
If the world is a stage and the people mearly players, where is the audience?
“Everybody is ad-libbing his lines” — how nice it is to remember the days before politically correct speech!
I’ve often thought life would be better if we could just have an occasional song and dance production number to liven things up.
Is my life a tragedy or a comedy? Rats, won’t know till the end.
If you want special effects Calvin you should go see The Hobbit, Desolation of Smaug. Is the two step a dance number???
How about the total destruction of our health care system for special effects and the back track dance number.
Apparently, neither you nor Ghost01 have the slightest idea of what the Marxist Theory actually is.
“The Marxist Theory states that society is basically the struggle between the social classes. Capitalism is really the exploitation of the working class and that to stop this, the working class has to gain power through a social revolution.”
Given that both the conservatives and Obama are solid capitalists, this descriptor is patently ridiculous. Really, if you are going to perjoratively label someone, you should at least know the meaning of the label you are applying.
Also, I would advise you to remember that history did not begin on January 20, 2009. The policies that GW Bush set in place, such as two unfunded, off the books wars, unfunded Medicare Part D and further deregulating Wall Street, set the stage for the global economic collapse that began in 2008 and came to it’s full destructive force in early 2009. So, yes, Bush still does deserve the criticism with respect to the origins of the collapse. Both the Republicans and the DINO’s deserve the outrage that Congress has been receiving for their absolute failure to address the needs of the 99%. The Republicans stated publicly that they would do anything and everything to insure that Obama would not succeed and if they had to take the entire country down in the process, as John Boehner put it, so be it. The DINO’s think only about saving their own job and do nothing for the jobless out of fear of a primary. This sorry state of affairs is the reason for the worst two Congresses in American history and it’s a shame.
Ooh … the snow goons. Bring ’em on!
Hee, hee, hee.
Calvin is getting rather “meta” in this one. Am I the only one who noticed the prompter behind the tree?
Night, just a word….it’s “fait”, French for deed or action.
Night, another word: There is a solar system of possible thought and behavior between the Klan / Third Reich and political correctness. The one point where they do touch is that all three are utterly repressive of, not just speech, but ideas. The very operation of the individual human mind comes under their purview, according to them. Be so very careful of that pendulum swing.
I don’t know., i always thought that a socialist is a liberal who picked up a pen and paper, a communist is a socialist who picked up a gun, and a capitalist is one who supplied for both..
We’re all here for a reason.
Life isn’t always sunshine and roses.
But I have a feeling that Calvin may already know that.
That the play is the tragedy, “Man,” And its hero, the Conqueror Worm.
…..Edgar Allan Poe
I just want to say that in a world where practically everybody would say “everybody is ad llibbing their lines” to find Calvin and Bill being grammatically and logically correct with “his lines” fills me with joy and optimism. Keep “joy”. Strike “optimism”.
Don’t know what he is trying to say, but it sounds really, really profound!
Lots more dance — we need lots more dance, and a lot of singing, too!
For too many people (chronlogical adults) the world is nothing but special effects and dance numbers. (No substance, no meaning.) Sorry to bum y’all out. Have a happy and joyous new ya’.
the fact is, understanding is based on the pneumatic structure. so if something is outside of the structure, people cannot understand it, period. what it boils down to is in reality there are very few stupid people. but there are a lot of people who do stupid things and believe only what the want to believe.
