I like how he's responding to an "outraged letter from a reader" today. Typically comic strips are prepared weeks, if not months, in advance. I'm sure the whole batch of Coburn strips, including today's, were completed long before the first one actually saw publication last week. So unless...

And this one has nothing to do with Bush, but it's fascinating nonetheless, not least because it has Mallard/Tinsley claiming to be a libertarian: A "libertarian" with a woody for a morality nazi like Senator Coburn? It's like people don't even care what the political labels mean anymore,...

I haven't read enough Mallard Fillmore to discern Tinsley's attitude toward Bush. Does he ever criticize Bush? The fact that he's pimping for Senator Coburn, an old fashioned "cut taxes/cut spending" conservative suggests he should have problems with Bush's new style "cut taxes/spend ...

Tinsley can't even pretend to care about the visual aspect of his strip, can he? It's not really even a comic strip, is it? It's just a George Will column accompanied by two random drawings of a duck's head. Seriously though, wouldn't it be cool if the Republicans did nominate Senator Coburn for pr...

Maybe Tinsley likes fake boobs: "And I thought I would just share with you what science says today about silicone breast implants. If you have them, you're healthier than if you don't. That is what the ultimate science shows. . . . In fact, there's no science that shows that silicone breast imp...

Ahh...so now the issue isn't Clinton lied, it's that he (almost) slept with somebody's daughter? Give me a break. I would bet that if you did a survey, you'd find that the majority of Americans believe Clinton was brought up on impeachment charges because he'd had an affair, not because he'd lied u...

Bruce Tinsley is employing the same technique as many Christian rock artists... pander to a fixed base audience that is so desirous of hearing their message affirmed that they will support you even if you lack talent. By advocating for the "disenfranchised" far right, he's found a gimmick ...

Hey, I was just asking. You're inferring defensiveness where none was intended. I truly don't care if you (or anyone else) likes those Beach Boys records, and I don't like much of them myself as I posted earlier in the thread. In general I enjoy the exchange of opinions but have no investment in get...

And does anybody understand the Jane Pauley/Rachel/daughter comment? Doesn't make any sense to me. Garry Trudeau and Jane Pauley have a daughter named Rachel. So he's using the "you Clinton-lovers would feel differently if Clinton slept with your daughter" argument. The irony being that G...

COLA... so you think the Beach Boys suck. Then why have you bothered to listen to their shit years albums enough times to have detailed, informed opinions about how and why they suck? What's that about? Masochism? Or are you a lapsed fan now seeking to deprogram others?

That box isn't radically different from the current one, it doesn't seem. The biggest difference is that they've righted the first box's anti-Gene Clark bias in terms of track selection from the first two albums. It would have been nice if they'd thrown in Flight 713, the only track from the Never ...

Wasn't all the Vigotone stuff (artwork, mastering compilation) done by one guy? And didn't he go to jail? Or did he get off with a fine.

Thanks for posting the clips, Luke. I won't have time to listen to them till the weekend.

So then do you think the mono Beatles '65 from the Capitol box does sound better than the BFS CD?

So, as someone who's never heard either the first four regular Beatles CDs or the Capitol Box Volume one, I wonder... does the Capitol box really sound better, as so many on hoffman.tv claim, despite the inferior source tapes? If so, why? What is it about the first four CDs that is so bad, aside fro...

I was hoping the winner would sell CDR's behind the scenes to recoup his money. The problem with that idea is that after the first two or three copies were sold, the people who bought copies would start making their own copies and trading them, and before too long no one would want to buy copies fr...
