Inktober Day 21 – Gilbert Gottfried

Inktober Day 21 – Gilbert Gottfried published on No Comments on Inktober Day 21 – Gilbert Gottfried

My wife can’t understand why I like #GilbertGottfried so much. It mostly stems from this one time I saw him on #HollywoodSquares where he just killed it for a half-hour straight. Now I am a regular listener to #GilbertGottfriedsAmazingCollossalPodcast which is mostly his co-host #FrankSantopadre interviewing film and tv actors for the 50s, 60s and 70s while Gilbert tells terrible jokes. It is highly entertaining.

Inktober Day 20 – Jon Ronson

Inktober Day 20 – Jon Ronson published on No Comments on Inktober Day 20 – Jon Ronson

I first became aware of #JonRonson in the early 1990s when he had an early evening show on BBC2 called #TheRonsonReport. Ir was a half-hour documentary show which showcased Ronson’s trademark blend of investigative journalism and humor. It was really great, but it didn’t last very long. Sometime after that, I was at a large event for media students in London that my friend Juliet Coombe was organizing, and it turned out that Ronson was giving the keynote speech. He basically got on stage and ranted on bitterly for 20 minutes about how the people in power would chew us up and suck us dry and spit us out. I guess he wasn’t happy with #JanetStreetPorter for cancelling his show. Anyway, when he was done he stormed out through the middle of the room. He swept right past me, glowering so hard that I couldn’t tell him how much I had enjoyed his show, and his rant.

Anyway, I was most gratified when I learned some years later that he was the writer behind the movie The Men Who Stare at Goats, which was based on his book of the same name. Since then he’s written a series of books exploring the frontiers of our society. He’s always looking into cults and strange belief systems, and just the stranger workings of our human world. His other books include: “The Psychopath Test“, “So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed“, and “Lost At Sea: The Jon Ronson Mysteries“, “Them: Adventures with Extremists“. All are essential reading.

In his younger days, Ronson was also the keyboardist in the Frank Sidebottom’s Oh Blimey Big Band, and he was played by Domnall Gleeson in the movie Frank.

I think this cartoon shows him when he’s a bit younger, after I saw him in London, while he was writing “The Men Who Stare At Goats”. But I did him holding a cell phone because he wrote a lot about Twitter and other social media in  “So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed“.

Inktober Day 19 – The Dalai Llama

Inktober Day 19 – The Dalai Llama published on No Comments on Inktober Day 19 – The Dalai Llama

My good friend John Fishwick was into Tai Chi back in the early 1990s. He was from Bolton and had moved down to Basingstoke to work for IBM. He invited me to go see the Dalai Llama speak in London. It was the last in a series of three lectures The Dalai Llama was giving up at Wembley Arena. It was all about Nirvana, and how that is, in fact, a state of pure nothingness. It was interesting, but I couldn’t really understand it after a while, and I couldn’t help nodding off. I woke up for the Q&A, possible now under the Dailai Llama’s hypnotic spell. I don’t remember much of it now, but I left feeling uplifted and charmed by the man, and will always be grateful for the experience of having been to listen to him.

Anyway, I’m sure that sort of thing can’t be good for America.

Inktober Day 18 – Oliver Cromwell

Inktober Day 18 – Oliver Cromwell published on No Comments on Inktober Day 18 – Oliver Cromwell

Yes, since winning the English Cilvil War (1642-1651) Oliver Cromwell has indeed been destroying America with his puritans ways. After the war King Charles I was beheaded, and the country was ruled by the Parliament for 12 years, lead by Oliver Cromwell. When he died, he was so unpopular that Charles 2 was brought back from exile in Europe, and England ended up with the monarchy it has today.

The Puritans were the world’s fist minimalists, oblitterating all manner of beautiful, but pagan-seeming, medieval art for the churches, of which only tantalizing glimpses remain. These scenes show last judgements and demons and Devils of all kinds to delight the modern cartoonist.

After Cromwell’s death, everyone was sick of puritans, so they were pretty much hounded out of the country, so they left to set up shop over here in the USA. Well, each to their own, I say, but my general feeling is that puritans don’t like cartoons.
