Artblog.net returns Thursday.

In the meantime, after a long hiatus, there is a new Homestar Runner.

I guess I'll throw in a comment....If I have anything to say about HomeStarRunner it suffers from mediocre writing and the animation is a little cold and uninteresting. Yes, it is a well thought out site and has some entertaining characters, but the stories are flat.

My six year old son enjoys the HomeStarRunner but, I'd rather re-read George Herriman any day or even watch Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends on Cartoon Network.

Happy Fourth of July!

Boom!
Pop!
Crack!
Bam!
Boom!

WHO WILL FRED AND CHARLES SELL TO WHEN THE BRITISH MARKET DRIES UP?
HOW WILL THEY GET MORE "OLD MONEY" TO SUPPORT THEIR CAUSE?

Who is Charles? Why are you yelling at us?

Also, why is this yelling person posting under my great aunt's father in law's name? Odd.

Robert Chambers is a well-known Miami Artist, Bunny, but this comment , made by someone at 3 AM, seems uncharacteristic of him. Who knows what it's all about.

... my guess: "Charles" refers to Chuck Saatchi...

Chambers was also a very respected teacher - adventurous and an extremely likable guy. I learned a lot from him about putting together exhibitions and organizing many artworks and artists into a single space. Too bad he was 'ousted' from U.M. Why did this happen anyway?

Jordon, he was technically not "ousted" from UM; he was an adjunct or semester lecturer and when a search was made for a full time position someone else got the job. I can't get into the details, but, as it turned out, the department probably would have been better off with Chambers.
