Show and Tell

garfield minus garfield
Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness in a quiet American suburb.

Shake Girl, The Graphic Novel
Shake Girl represents a massive collaborative effort from 17 people dedicated to completing a graphic novel in just a few weeks. It was finished in early 2008 and is now available online for free.

The creation of Shake Girl was based on a series of true events that have happened to real women.

FreeRice has two goals:

1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

Shake Girl is a haunting story. It shows both the ugliness and selfishness of humanity and its strength, courage, beauty and selflessness. Definitely worth reading.

Thanks for the shout-out disfunk. I am currently out of travel mode and finding it hard to find inspiration for the travelogue. By the way, I'm still in Korea. Also, I made the crucial faux-pas of giving the travelogue's web address to the powers that be at my place of employment, which inhibits my ability to truthfully disclose all subject matter detailing my current day-to-day happenings, which is unfortunate given the disbelieving hilarity with which they would be received by the travelogue's astute audience. With any luck though, things will be back to "normal" at the travelogue soon enough.
