Homer Groening… What A Guy

Quite a find: a short film by Matt Groening's father, Homer, called Basic Brown, Basic Blue (1969), for your enjoyment from the Internet Archive.

Matt's dad was quite a character: he participated in the D-Day invasion, flew in the Korean war, made a mark in the advertising business, and was self-taught filmmaker.

Perhaps you've noticed a certain trope in writing that seems to have spread over the blogosphere. I started noticing this tic in The Awl. Which I love! But perhaps it's more a tic in search of its own ticciness than a style that deserves to last.

Even James Fallows is doing it – see the second paragraph.

Nice writeup on Kickstarter, also used for funding the promotion for Bleu's new's album – it was so effective, blowing past its goal in less than eight hours, it was the first time he cried onstage, just talking about it.
