ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
I like it! It’s nice to see Chris Ware doing something that isn’t absolutely harrowing.
I’ve been a fan of Chris Ware since forever, but damned if I can force myself to appreciate his most recent circle-obsessed style.
Sigh…Sometimes I think I just might not be a hipster after all.
Taymar??? or Tamar… is she Armenian?
Wow! Ambulatory jazz-age snowman!
That’s not just any couple, it’s Robert Krulwich of Radiolab fame and his wife, Tamar Lewin, who is a reporter for the New York Times. Robert’s also a well known news reporter…check out his bio at:
and her stories at:
I live in Chicago, and a little after I moved into my current place, I learned that Chris Ware had lived in an apartment above me, but he had moved out shortly before I moved in.
I had no idea who that was, but living in the hipster neighborhood of Chicago, I learned pretty quick.
I know that was totally random, but I feel at least a little connection to somebody I’ve never met, that just so happens to be on BoingBoing today.
By the way, the animation was awesome.
Very cool animation, but unneccesary. One of the real beauties of TAL is how easy it is to visualize the stories being told; seeing it literally drawn out is almost redundant.
#3: It would have been even cooler if he had left behind a bizarre hand-assembled wood vending machine in the laundry room that sold detergent packaged in boxes decorated with elaborate calligraphy and cheeky ad copy.
+1 for the “Marriage Jury”. Oh I laughed and laughed and laughed because it’s true.
Animation and story: I enjoyed it very much.
