I’d have to check my copy.
On cheesecake night we snuck right down
To laundry room ring
That voice that calls to us and speaks the deed
And do we see again for now we find
The Phantom of the Ring is there
Inside our minds
Tussle with me this time
On cheesecake night
My power over theater grows stronger yet
You turn from me to glance behind
The Phantom of the Ring is here
Inside your minds
Those who have seen your face
Draw back in joy
We are the mask you wear
It’s me they see…
Your/My spirit and my/your art in one combined
Inside our/your minds
She’s here, the phantom of the ring!
She’s there, the phantom of the ring
Tussle, my Angels of the Laundry Room
Tussle, my Angels
Tussle for me
Tussle, my Angels!
Tussle for me!
My god, I was joking the other day when I paraphrased the line from the song The Phantom of the Opera as The Phantom of the Ring. But does this intro feel like Sophie is going for the Phantom of the Ring to anyone else?
Well, not what one would expect.
Some good bands on that list. Shame on you, Pig.
Keep in mind I was just bored enough to want to do the research as it gave me something to do other than play games or watch TV. But not so bored to not give a ***********.
I FOUND THE QUOTE!!!! It was from Pearls Freaks the #*%# Out under the March 16, 2010 strip on page 98 (the middle strip on the page). Pastis says “I generally don’t like mentioning specific date in the strip because it means I have to run the strip at a certain time (like here, where it had to run shortly after the diary dates in March 2010). That’s hard for me because I submit the strip to the syndicate many months in advance and can’t always remember that a certain has to be run by a certain date.”
Now I seem tov recall there was another quote talking specifically about when the strip runs and when it was turned int to the syndicate in relation to the strip referencing old current events. But I don’t feel like looking for that quote.
Well, I found the treasurie for the BP spill, it’s Pearls Freaks the #*%# Out. Page 150 under the July 15, 2010 strip Pastis says "This strip was in reference to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that poured oil into the Gulf of Mexico for almost three months in 2010. Ironically, on the very day this strip appeared (July 15), the leak stopped. As one reader later wrote to me, “You spoke and the oil stopped flowing. Now ask for world peace.”
I know that’s not the comment I’m looking for, but it does mention that he didn’t write the strip after events. Though BP did continue to fight the spill until they finally sealed it in September, July 15th was when the spill finally appeared to dissapte. Will still have to hunt for the quote I want. Might be in that treasury as I do know it was before the above quote. Just not sure if it was that treasury or one of the three before it. I started collecting the treasuries starting with The Crass Menagire (I don’t have the first two treasuries) so I know I’m looking through four treasuries to find the quote.
Quick, someone check to see if Medusa Nazi jumped strips on Georgia!
Funny, the way she said it could have gone either way, Shermy is the good and Charlie Brown the bad or Charlie Brown the good and Shermy the bad.
