  • Yesterday was J. R. R. Tolkien's birthday. On a whim, I put up my first YouTube video ever (of "Damn Those Dwarves," a song I wrote about Bilbo Baggins. No, Leonard Nimoy does not make a cameo). It's not of stellar quality, and yes, I'm aware that the ukulele is ever so slightly louder than my voice, but regard it as a fun experiment. I hope to improve eventually. In the meantime: happy birthday, Mr. Tolkien.

    Panel 1: Marie and Evil Marie have just got off the mysterious bus.

    Marie: Well...this is the Horn Street stop.

    Evil Marie: What if we really were supposed to get off at Ivory?

    Panel 2:

    Marie: Then we walk there. It's two blocks away.

    Evil Marie: But what if it doesn't work that way? What if we broke a rule? What if--

    Panel 3:

    Voice From Off Panel: Will you guys please shut up and let me experience this acute pain unimpeded?

    Panel 4: Marie and Evil Marie find Casey kneeling on the grass. His clothes are tattered, and he has been roughed up.

    Marie: Hi, Casey.

    Evil Marie: I knew we should've got off at Ivory.

    Alt-Text: It probably would have been quieter there.
