The Tom Cherry Experience

Thursday, April 27, 2006


Due to circumstances beyond my control (grumble grumble), I went to work yesterday without my contacts thus forcing me to navigate through a blurry landscape that I call my life. I survived it with no injury to myself or to others so I guess that's a mark in the win column.

In order to feel linky, here's a nice interview with Matt Groening (via Cartoon Brew).

Unnamed Alien Project

After nearly two weeks of ideal spring-type weather, late October returned for a visit with gray skies and cold rain yesterday. So despite what the calendar may say, don't pack away those long-sleeved shirts just yet, friends!

I've been toying around with a new idea for a comic strip involving two aliens just recently. I have no clue if this concept is worth pursuing, but I did come up with the following strip.

There may be more to come.

My Little Town

I should have mentioned this earlier, but if you wanted a good, recent snapshot of Muncie, Indiana ("America's Hometown®") then you should have read Thursday's edition of The Star Press. The paper covered the story about a homeless man throwing his urine at teenagers and the ballyhoo surrounding the opening of the newest Wal-Mart in town. The article concerning Wal-Mart featured the following:

Some members of the crowd grew restless during the 30-minute opening ceremony Wednesday morning. "Get 'er done!" one man in the crowd shouted.

At least one man appeared to have kept his son out of school to show him the store.

"They're not going to give you a tardy for going to Wal-Mart," the man was overheard telling the boy.

Target, probably, but Wal-Mart? Never!!!

I Confess!

Okay, it's time for some confessions... Confession #1 I was planning on updating yesterday, but I didn't do it. Confession #2 On Good Friday, I met the family for dinner at a local buffet. While perusing the desserts, I noticed a container full of gummi bears. I probably haven't mentioned this before, but I have a certain fondness for all things gummi so I filled a small bowl with the chewable critters with a plan in mind. Later, before leaving the premises, I dumped the bowl of gummies into a napkin and stuffed them down in my pants pocket! I left the buffet undeterred and enjoyed my sugary swag later that evening. With successfully thwarting the buffet, I have decided to try to smuggle out a chicken leg or two the next time I am there and thus my criminal career has begun. Confession #3 Sometimes I think I sound like a middle aged woman. Confession #4
I have fallen under the seductive charms of Wonder Showzen. I have become enamored by its dark, bilious heart and nothing you can say can ever change that!

Ten Items or Less

ITEM! A couple Saturdays ago, I dressed up in my Wazzowear* and ran up and down the steps of the Muncie Library. All my running was for a scene featured in a Christmas short film we began (Yikes!)last year. Tim, of course, was filming and Eric took this picture. ITEM! April 1 was an anniversary for my comic strip, Those Funky Idiots. The strip has been on the web for five years! I celebrated this milestone by doing absolutely nothing. ITEM! The Food Network has stopped airing the original Iron Chef! Blasphemy! ITEM! Last Saturday I had the pleasure to see The Rocky Horror Show at the Muncie Civic Studio Theatre with my friends, Jerry and Judy Cole. It was a really fun show with a great cast (Hello, Joe Skeen!) and I highly recommend it! ITEM! My Mom broke her wrist while rollerskating this past Wednesday. She's doing fine and I hope her wrist quickly mends. Take it easy, Mom!

*Also known as my Arlo Wazzo costume!
