What's remarkable is that the kid is only 19, when I was 19 I was failing my one class at college and vacuuming the carpet over and over cause I was on drugs.

The six Garfield strips
One storyline, which lasted a week from October 23, 1989 is unique among Garfield strips in that it is not meant to be humorous. It depicts Garfield awakening in a future in which the house is abandoned and he no longer exists. This is revealed to have been a dream of some kind, and ends with this narration:
"An imagination is a powerful tool. It can tint memories of the past, shade perceptions of the present, or paint a future so vivid that it can entice...or terrify, all depending on how we conduct ourselves today."
Alternatively, some theorize that the end of this storyline actually implies that the rest of the series, the more conventional strips, are all fantasies Garfield is playing out in his head to delude himself from realizing the dark turn his life has taken, as he slowly starves to death in an abandoned house. One would assume that his ability to eat more than physically possible in usual strips would be his use of fantasies to stave off his growing hunger and starvation. This theory is arguably supported by the text, as right before Jon and Odie reappear, the narration reads:
"After years of taking life for granted, Garfield is shaken by a horrifying vision of the inevitable process called ‘time.’ He has only one weapon...denial..."

The Record Store Cats
No time for losers
The best is some reader left a comment with a shout out to Belle and Sebastian's "Piazza, New York Catcher" and included the priceless lyric " Is he straight or is he gay?"

Lemon Aid For Ellie The Cat
A table set up with an umbrella and sign in front of 4401 Conestoga Trail attracted a lot of visitors. The sweltering temperature and detour on nearby Ridgewood Road didn't hurt, either.
Brian, Jonathan and two friends have pulled in $150 so far, selling lemonade for 50 cents and pop and water for a buck.
Another volunteer seller, Matt Triola, 11, admitted: ``It's a boiling hot day. But, why not. I like the cat.
''While Ellie's caretakers rallied support for her, she basked inside where it was air conditioned.
Once healthy, she's expected to be back to her normal routine of lurking about the neighborhood.
An eighteen-piece big band interpretation of the music of Bjork.
I'm listening to their version of "Army of Me" and it reminds of Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra for a few moments but other parts within the song turn me off.
Anyways it's an interesting concept and how can you pass up starting a band with that name.

All She Ask's The Strength To Hold Me
Oh You've Got Green Eyes, Oh You've Got Blue Eyes, Oh You've Got Grey Eyes
So here's a video that came out on last years New Order DVD Item, it's basically 8 minutes of Victoria Bergsman dancing and doing cartwheels
New Order's video producer Michael Shamberg talks about it:
"I was in Paris working on another project, a personal film. One night a friend invited me to see the Swedish band The Concretes. They were wonderful. I met them afterwards and we went nearby for a drink. I told the singer, Victoria Bergsman, what I was up to in terms of developing a video for New Order. She told me of an idea she had for a video of a woman who goes shopping for a record (vinyl), takes it home, and dances to it."
