Hi, spuds. I heard that people have been asking about the Tired O’ Tourin’ webcomic that DEVO featured on the ClubDevo website in the early 2000’s. When Michelle and I (The Ladies of the Lake) were introduced to Mark Mothersbaugh at a lecture he gave in Tampa in 1999, he was intrigued when we told him we loved to draw comics…especially DEVO comics! It was one of the ways we survived the drudgery of high school. We created this comic, mailed it to Mutato, and Mark was nice enough to pass our comic along to Jerry, who posted it at the old ClubDevo.com.
Well, Later is Now, and suddenly, Devo is “hip” again- much more a part of the public consciousness (or sub-consciousness) than when we actually drew the comic! Lately there’s been some demand for Devo cartoons, so I hope this gives y’all some Satisfaction.
And now, the answers to the popular quiz game that’s sweeping the nation! How did YOU fare?
So, my glasses broke in two about two weeks ago. This is not fun when, without them, you’re legally blind. Trust me on this one. Anyway, everything’s fine now — I got my new glasses and I can see again. In the interim, though, my Dad had to come over to fix my glasses, and while he did, I waited on the couch with my iTunes playing for both of us to listen to. It was kind of fun watching album covers go by and trying to recognize the art from the vague blur that I could see. So, I put together a little game of identifying these record sleeves from blur-vision; roughly about what I could see without glasses.
Feel free to guess in comments; answers will be posted tomorrow!
HINT: None of them are Blur. That’s just a little on the nose.
