notes for Tivo Cute Pet

1. Stereogram Pornographic postcards, with cod-victorian illustrations! Buy them from a kiosk on the Museumplatz (sp?) in Amersterdam. This one is of two naked ladies staring back at the camera, one has scary pubic hair and scarier stare. I just bought this one over the naked man shagging a tuba.

2. The waving man behind Damian is Dan, all the way from Canada for the UK Juggling Convention. You can't see it in this picture, but his eyebrows are dyed constrasting colours, giving him a very strange expression.

3. I'm probably breaking the Tivo brand guidelines by putting the logo on white instead of on a cutesy little black cartoon television with TM next to it. Darn!

4. The things going "sob weep" are my video collection. They're supposed to be saying "sob weep we're obsolete" but I ran out of space.

5. We're watching "Invasion of the Dinosaurs", a late Jon Pertwee Dr Who adventure. I want more unconvincing dinosaur effects. Jon Pertwee wants to drive more landrovers and unconvincingly karate chop people. He's winning, but the end of the episode is coming ...

6. Anchors Away is a musical starring Gene Kelley and Frank Sinatra, much sampled for gay revisionist work A Touch of Scarlet, and featuring Kelley dancing with Sinatra, a little beggar girl, and Jerry Mouse (yes, from Tom and Jerry). Do I need to tell you that The Prophecy III is a DTV freakshow starring Christopher Walken as the angel Gabriel (killed in I, turned human in II, drives down a freeway playing a trumpet in III)?

7. AKA G Force. UK version, as it turns out -- Tiny, Princess, Mark, Keeop and the other guy going all firey phoenix, and 7-zark-7 doing the usual manga thing of making things even more incomprehensible by trying to explain them.

8. Instead of a Dr Who adventure, Tivo had saved a single frame from Sky 1, a close-up manga face, crying and shouting (probably blasting off agaaaaaaiiiiiin!). We identified her from the eyelashes and lippy.

9. Five great episodes later, I was much improved. Really should start work on The Inbetween Affairs Affair.

Naked Tuba Man
HOW could you possibly resist? BTW ,what is that little creature on your wonderful 'wallpaper'? I've been admiring it for many moons.

Re: Naked Tuba Man
...well, they were, um I forget how many euros each, but it came to about £4.50 in quids, so I could only really justify buying one! They were really great though: a cardboard frame which folded out to reveal built-in viewing goggles, and two saucy medium-format photos.

>what is that little creature?

There are lizards, lizards in the wallpaper! I was trying to make little gifs that tiled without looking rubbish. He was about my only success. Drawing with a mouse, too ... a long time ago. I keep meaning to update those pages and introduce a smoother lizard, in slightly more subtle colours, but ...

I'm really flattered and surprised that you -- anyone, really -- look at my weeklies. I never get any emails about it (except from the people I mail to tell them they're in it) and I always kind of think of it as something that works best for me, OK for people who see me all the time/who might be in the strip, but probably doesn't have much to say to anyone else ... well, thanks for looking :)

Re: Naked Tuba Man
I read them and enjoy them. I even have most of them downloaded. But then I've always considered one of your strips to be a Thing of Beauty And Worth Posessing.

Re: Weeklies
Oh no, some of them are a bit obscure, but on the whole, I think they can be appreciated by anyone, and the drawing itself is sheer pleasure, even when you don't know what's happening. It's the N Testament stuff that really blows me away, though. Just bloody gorgeous...

Re: Naked Tuba Man
Hey, I always read them. Sorry I haven't commented sooner. I like the lizards, too.

Re: Naked Tuba Man
That's OK, pop-star man. You've been busy preparing for a gig! Fun time, by the way, and good to see you :) It's a nice venue apart from the lousy sound and the expensive drinks!
