December 1941 Famous Funnies

Comics that aggregated newspaper comics and reprinted them along with some dedicated content. Dense and serialized. Read along with me - I have not yet.

Fearless Flint protects America's property from South Sea Islanders working on the as yet unfinished Mount Rushmore:

Connie - that it - just Connie - mixes it up in space (this one's a wallpaper):

Oakey Doakes gets chased by a rare Euro Panda:

A very early Steve Roper reenacts that purchase of Native American lands:

Santa messes up:

Plus Margaret Bourke-White, Jacqueline of Holland, and freaky tranny-style Albanians!

All pix (except the one with the wallpaper link) link to the comic

Adolph Hitler Campbell: Folks So Stupid They Have Crippled My Ability to Write a Clever Title

This is little Adolph Hitler Campbell - won't you decorate his birthday cake?

The Shop-Rite store that has refused to do so 3 times as well as refused decorate a cake with a swastika won't.

But who will? Wal-Mart y'all! The implication being "We're cool with it - we'll git 'er dun before y'all are finished browsin' the gun dee-part-mint. We know y'all are just thinkin' outta the box!"

We sure that the family, and especially little Adolph Hilter's sisters, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie will enjoy the cake.

MOVLOG: Ginsberg you're welcome at my Christmas table!

We'll HOWL with laughter!

Just a few more: Citrus Labels !!

Unvarnished truth. The smell of a wet dog from the chemical bath the fruit was placed in. The domesday book open to the citrus page. The ever widening gyre whose center cannot hold. Rough beasts slouching towards Jerusalem. Allen Ginsburg farting at your table as you slice into your Christmas pork loin.

Yay!.... for California produce!

Fruit Labels

A couple of years ago I was priviliged to view the Art of the Orange gallery at Los Angeles Public Library and got to view pristine examples of label art, with accompanying explanations of how the grade of the fruit was embedded in the imagery on the labels (like the King David above which meant grade "A" fruit)

I found (accidentally again looking for proposal imagery) this wonderful collection of images from Cratelabelsonline which has good sized images, and a large collection of the classic California and West Coast agricultural marketing images.

Check it out - you won't regret it.

Chuckman Has Massaged My Brain

Jesus, my eyes! I always put a unique image on the covers of the proposals I write. They act as mnemonic devices as well a differentiators of content, and my clients being of a more free thinking bent, seem to appreciate that I took the time to find something that correlates my awareness of their existence. I was looking for an image of Mount Palomar Observatory when I found Chuckman's blog, where he has loads of stuff, but I was drawn into it via these awesome space cards. If you could fMRI me right now, my primary visual cortex would be firing like, like, I dunno, like the roiling plasma covered surface of the Sun.
