Worth A Read...

The New York Times digs up a little info about the blogger behind garfield minus garfield, which I wrote about last February. Seems Dan Walsh is a 33-year-old technology manager from Dublin and Garfield creator Jim Davis is an occasional reader of the site. He says he is flattered rather than peeved by the imitation.

I guess that's because he's not as amusingly abrasive as Joe Mathlete's Marmaduke Explained.

New York Times: Is the Main Character Missing? Maybe Not.
If a television show turned cultural phenomenon spawns diehard fans who recite dialogue by heart, wear costumes inspired by the show and buy all the tie-in products, are these devotees nerds? If the show in question is Star Trek, The X-Files or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the answer is certainly yes. But what if we're talking about Sex and the City?

National Post: Female Trekkies
This is the first in what I hope will be a semi-regular posting of stuff I've been reading. We'll see.


  1. Fervour on the part of Sex and the City fans would certainly explain how the movie made so much money this weekend!

  2. I know many women who went in groups and had parties before hand, but if you called them a Trekkie (a Sexxie? Hmm...) I'm sure they'd take great offense.
