I do love Cat’s expression in panels four and five, like you can’t tell whether he’s content, or planning something.
(Silly question: Is this the first time we have seen his shins?)
It’s a beauty.
Hey, I remember vhs. Boy, that thing was terrible.
Thoreau would be proud ;)
Every day, I try hard to forget VHS. Every day, I enjoy the sight of my Laserdiscs.
Doesn’t Bird produce a fallacy? How should I miss what I cannot rememeber? What is the inherent value of obscurity? When exactly did obscurity end and why? All the questions!
that bird is just plain not very cool.
It just helps me to know that 900 miles away from here, my father still has a filing cabinet full of Betamax cassettes.
Early Betamax was superior to early VHS but Sony lost the marketing battle. They vowed that it would never happen again. Fast forward to 2008 and Sony’s BLU-RAY stomps the superior HD-DVD format.
The obscurity of what, though?
Obscurity exists more now than ever.
Girl complains as often as a bird sings.
The bird is right. I miss the ’90s. I don’t miss being the black sheep of grade school.
@Ross: According to the latest, it looks like Blu-Ray is the cassingle to HD-DVD’s 8-track. Most people are either happy with their existing DVDs or making the jump straight to online/on-demand HD video. The rest of them own PS3s and just feel a need to justify the purchase.
There is so much T-shirt material in here…
Yesterdays comic and today’s have reminded me of a battle I have waged for years with ontology, epistemology and poo.
Somewhere in John Barth’s novel ‘Letters’ he discusses the blesisngs and curses of having a ‘history’ and if or when we should consider disposing of the past.
Two Latin phrases get mentioned: “Praeteritas futuras fecundant.” and “Praeteritas futuras stercorant.” Barth suggests the dilemma: Does the past fertilize the future or manure the future?
I prefer to say that the past just craps up the future! So, as Tom Cochran sings: “The secret is to know when to stop remembering…”
And, Dorthy, please keep Bird off of Twitter!
@porkopolis – wow, latin, poo AND a tom cochrane quote! that was just like listening to a summary of an obscure CBC program. like, from the time that gzowski was cutting himself on cuisinarts.
the cheep will always be superseded by the cheeper
This comment is laaate and somewhat unrelated but Cat doesn’t have a tail…? :0
Beta was bettah. Cat’s tail is on the other side where you can’t see it.
