A few words about my cartoons
I thought it only fitting that I should observe Ansel Adams one-hundredth birthday, but I couldnt think of anything to say about the old rascal that I hadnt said in a dozen previous notebook entries, including a recent review of Ansel Adams at 100.
Thats when I decided to become a cartoonist.
Since I am unable to draw, and lack a sense of humor, I decided to be a conceptual cartoonist. In doing so, I abandoned entertainment, illustrations, comedy, talent, and other hallmarks of twentieth-century cartoons.
Im quite pleased with the results. My cartoons are quick and easy to make, theyre certainly as boring as my more ambitious works, and they promise to provide more notebook filler than my failed 1999 attempt at making snaportraits.
I plan on making cartoons regularly. Weakly, even.

- International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
- Mick sent me a note advising that tomorrow is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Mick is an idiot, so I paid no attention to the ludicrous announcement.
I once bought some dog biscuits for my cats, but they wouldnt eat them. It turns out that dog biscuits arent made out of dogs at all!

- Done Doing Nothing?
- Ina asked me what I was doing, so I gave her an honest answer.
Nothing, I replied.
So how do you know when youre done? Ina asked.
I didnt know what to say.

- Or Ale
- I saw a large, hand-painted sign that used to be a FOR SALE sign. The author of the signor perhaps a clever editorhad rubbed out two of the seven characters, so now the sign simple read, OR ALE.
Everybody needs an editor.

- Music Only They Can Hear
- Desmond forwarded an invitation to last Fridays concert, Sound Structures 5. He added, I think youll like the sweatshirt music. I looked at the program, and found an interesting description of sweatshirt music.
Gavin Bryars - 1-2-3-4 (3 soloists, playing along to music only they can hear)
- Silent soloists! Perhaps sweatshirt music, like the Coma Choir, is a strong idea thats taking root.
Solo! Solo! So low we cant hear you!
