1821 Stray Dog Strut.
When daylight savings happens I always forget which direction my server clock goes. Half the year I upload at 10 by the server clock and half at 9 because the clock doesn’t change. The server doesn’t recognize daylight savings. Today is that post for this year. If you find the page up an hour early that’s why. I also make this post once a year. I should just copy and paste it to save time.
The dust is blowing so much right now I can taste dirt even in the house. It’s amazing that we can grow crops out here. The Earth doesn’t want this place to be moist in an way. Pure human stubbornness is what makes that possible.
Nice to see that the comic shares a title with an episode of arguably the greatest anime of all time.
Glad people still remember it.
Trigun was better. Love and peace
Lets not argue Apples and Oranges (even if I agree with you)
Because everyone loves the manic-depressive adventures of a cowboy who spends half the series sobbing….
dammit, beat me to it!
See You Space Cowboy…
I’m a fan of Dominion Tank Police, myself.
Sometimes I like the vintage stuff. :)
*Hiding my copies of: Battle of the Planets, Marine Boy, and Speed Racer*
New Dominion was actually my first anime, way back when.
New Dominion Tank Police was awesome. But I didn’t know anyone else knew about it.
The first series I owned was Armored Trooper Votoms on VHS though New Dominion was second. My first DVD set was Fushugi Yugi …. I only ever listed to the US voice acting once and sadly that was when I was attempting to show family what I was watching – took decades to counter the damage from that.
Dominion Tank Police is great, but assuming Tokyo Gore Police has anything to do with it leads only to suffering. That’s two hours I’ll never get back.
My first anime was Gigantor. I’ve even got the Laserdiscs!
(Do I start a flame war if I say that I think Astro Boy was lame?)
Yes, yes you do.
Well OK, then. I won’t say it!
There was a 1960, live action TV show, of Astro Boy. I think you can see a part of it on youtube. This part is Part 1, + there is also a pt. 2 and pt. 3.
It looks like the vid. sticks in some places, + turns to live action, at around minute- 1:24.
Here it is:
Gigantor was anime? I just remember watching it on broadcast TV as a kid in the 1960s. Still rember the title music!
Speed Racer then too.
Yeah, Gigantor’s theme music was rockin’.
Any love for yatterman?
Thanks for telling us about Yatterman! I’ve never heard of it.
I just watched a little of a fansubbed, Yatterman video, on youtube. It’s this video:
I’ll have to see more Yatterman episodes!
IMO, That show is really fun + bizarre! :D
I’m not 100% sure what my first anime was. There’s a good chance it was Big Ben, Leo the White Lion, The Lost Cities of Gold, or Unico.
Pure Human Stubbornness made a lot of what we as a race have accomplished possible.
And a number of those were spectacular failures that last through the generations.
EX – We have problem with methane gas. Hey Igor, light that gas, it will burn out soon enough – 40+ years and still going strong.
Yay, there are a lot of anime fans on the site, today!
I like “the Lost cities of gold”, too. I also like the 1980s, anime-like TV show:
“Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea”.
MAN, I work at a Barnes and Noble and this is like you recorded my manager and coworkers conversations for these past few strips
We’re anticipating our now-inevitable death by website and using dark humor to keep ourselves sane! Hooray!
I can relate to that. They “restructured” the department I was in at the place I used to work, just a fancy way way of saying “We’re eliminating your job, good bye.”
“Spring forward, Fall back.” You’re welcome, Jackie. =)
Not everything automatically updates the time change.
When two critical systems are connected and only one automatically updates the time?
Welcome to my Monday – the study aborted – can’t salvage the data – do it over then.
Which means you’ve got 6 months to complete the study…
Longer. In the US, we spend more time on Daylight Savings Time than we do on “Standard” time.
Which goes to show what a joke Daylight Savings Time really is. Glad Florida did something smart (for once) and abolished it.
Before us humans decided to plow up the plains of the Midwest, dust was not an issue – pollen maybe – but not dust. Even when they were fairly dry, the plants covering the plains mostly held down all the soil and prevented it from becoming airborne as dust.
You may remember from your US history that back around the time of the depression was also the time of the “dust bowl”. Modern farming practices have mitigated the effect a lot, but as you are currently experiencing, they haven’t completely avoided the problem.
A fire near (20+ miles-around here that’s near) has been burning for days-burned several thousand acres already. This may put us on the map. As you might suppose, some rain would be welcome. Oh, and were pretty much the center of the dust bowl. Remember that iconic picture of the dad and kids making for the shack and all the sand? Right near (well you know what I mean) here.
1. Make Reggie full timer
2. Hire Ed’s sister maybe?
I like the way you Math. I don’t math, myself, but I do like your equation, and I believe it would work. Even if it is not P.C., it was very funny.
