Review: Wilson

I want to eat Dan Clowes’ brain.  If I can’t have all of it, that’s fine — I just want the writing parts.  If I could write stories half as well as Dan Clowes, I’d be really something.  And that’d be enough for most people, but Clowes is also a master artist.  He just has to have the whole package — instead of sharing it with others.  Like me, I can’t draw a lick.  But I’ve gotten used to a lack of drawing skills — so to be able to write like him… jeez, that’d be great.

Y’know what I like? I mean, aside from watching TV and all that stuff, but y’know, big and in general?

I like ladies with glasses.

Glasses are like, lady-enhancers.

Like, y’know who I thought was really, really cool? Bailey Quarters from WKRP. She was wonderful. She was pretty, and she was nice, and she was smart, and she was fresh out of journalism school and got a job at a radio station. She was awesome. I felt bad for her because she was really nervous and sometimes Herb’d try to bring her down, and then sometimes Les would sorta join in a little bit, or sometimes a lot, and she’d want to cry a little, and I just wanted to reach into the TV and give her a big ol’ hug and let her know everything’d be all right. I wonder why Andy didn’t do that more often. Or Venus, but he wasn’t around as much, cause he was the night DJ, and Bailey usually worked during the day, but sometimes Venus’d just come down to the station to hang out or work on show prep or something. But then, he was usually with Dr. Johnny Fever, or Andy. But, anyway, though, I thought Bailey was awesome. She was probably my favorite, not to slight Jennifer, who was pretty cool too, or any of the rest of them really.

I’m thinking that most of the people who’d be reading this are already familiar with Ghost World, either Dan Clowes‘ comic or the Terry Zwigoff film. If you’re not — well, you should be! And the Special Edition is a pretty good way to get familiar, albeit a relatively pricey way. But, for your 40 dollars (opposed to the 10 or so of the standard edition) you get a pretty awesome package.
