LOL! That was pretty good. :)
Ken Burns is really planning a history on comic strips in 2013 for PBS?
Remember the American Masters Charles Schulz/Peanuts episode some years back?
I have to admit that when Tom introduced this piece at the Reuben Dinner I fell for it until the video started :-)
Wish Ken Burns was really going to do something – anyone have his number?
Don’t attempt to watch this video at work, unless you want unwarranted attention from your co-workers for your snickers and thinly-supressed chortles. I hope R. C. Harvey loved it as much as I did!
I asked Bob (Harvey) immediately following its screening what he thought of the short, and he told me he couldn’t hear much of it – he wears a hearing aid – but he did laugh at Jeannie Schulz using his book to crack nuts.
Indeed, I have Ken’s number, even going so far as to write him this “open letter” after he and I chatted in D.C. last year: http://wapo.st/co19cg .
* The official reply: Although Mr. Burns enjoyed the piece, his film docket is booked for many years.
If only we could get Tom to make a *real* film. Gammill? Gammill??…
“…but a fight broke out, over the word ‘chiaroscuro’ and shots were fired.”
Laugh my butt off, that’s the funniest piece of writing I’ve seen in long time! LOL!!
Tom, you are a wizard, sir.
