Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: Really early sketches of Remy, long before he had a name. I keep wanting to give guys hairdos like this. This is what a 1980s childhood will do to a person.

Channing: There's something very Dave Davenport-esque about his side cut. For the record, I think the final design is a better look, but there's something weirdly charming about this one. I'm also a child of the 80s, though, so maybe it's just that.

Alex KB (kbkarma) says:

It just occurred to me...

His name is Remy. He lives in New Orleans. It's probably a coincidence. A funny one, but still.

Oh, and this is the first time I've commented on Skin Horse. I like the comic. Thanks guys.

Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says: Thanks for commenting, Alex. Glad you're enjoying. Not sure what coincidence you're referencing, unless it's the Marvel comics connection, which is indeed a coincidence, not an intentional reference. :)
Bethany Wade (bethanygirl) says: I don't usually comment either, but I wondered about the Remy thing too, only I was thinking of Remy McSwain, lieutenant in Homicide in the movie, 'The Big Easy'. Anyway, thanks for the strip, it brightens every day for me and it is the first site I visit on my morning rounds. Thanks to you both, Shaenon and Channing, you two are the best!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Copacabana", Barry Manilow)

His name is Remy,
He's from New Orleans!
His appellations' just the same
As that mutant Gambit's name!
But Jeffrey Channing
Says "No relation,
It's just coincidence", he said
Though he seems to like the dead!
And he un-flap-pa-bly
Can chat with U-ni-ty!
And it's a trip when the readers ship them!
(Look it up, Woo-zy!)

In New Orleans, the Crecent City!
Where life, post-Katrina, is gritty!
In New Orleans, the Crecent City ..
Romance and voodoo
Create quite a to-do
In New Orleans!
(It's zombie love ...)

Alex KB (kbkarma) says:

@Ed: I've never failed to be impressed by how you can... would "filk" be appropriate here? I'll use filk for lack of any other verb... filk a song at such short notice.

@Channing: The Marvel connection was just it. Thanks for clearing that up. Now my life is complete, up until the next time I get hung up over an inconsequential detail in a fictional work I enjoy.

Norman Thallheimer (normanrt) says:

Fen on this commentary (and Narbonic's commentary) have been using "filk" as the verb for what Ed does for years now.  Not sure if this use predates Narbonic or not, but "filk" has been used as a verb for people singing filk songs for decades at least, possibly since a certain con whose program was printed with "Filk Singing" on the schedule of events.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Whatever you call it, I appreciate the positive comments.  I guess I just have a filky mind ...

Michael Farren (farren) says:

"filk" goes back at least to the '70s, and very probably long before that. 

Corgi (corgi) says:

And it's always been a verb as well as a noun-segment, as in 'filk song'.

yiwu wdwd (yiwu) says:

According to a source, baby No. 2 is due next month. * According to USA Today, Arizona congressman Jeff Flake, a fiscal china shoes wholesale conservative, has sent out a press release claiming that the U.S. is so deep in debt ($14.6 trillion), it would be enough for Martin Scorsese to shoot 811,000 new TV shows, equivalent costwise to his pilot for HBO's "Boardwalk Empire." Yeah, and the Phillies could signmore than wholesale promotional gifts 800,000 Roy Halladays. But when would they pitch? We're not really sure what Flake's point is except to again acknowledge that $14.6 trillion is a lot of money. Besides, if Scorsese were to get the dough to shoot 811,000 TV episodes, there would probably be a drop in quality. It would also take you more than 93 years of sleep-free days to wholesale overstock from China watch them all. * What do Bristol Palin and Chaz Bono have in common? Both have received added security from "Dancing with the Stars." Oh, and neither can dance. (Note: this was written before Chaz's debut last night but Tattle is clairvoyant.) reports that ABC believes there Yiwu doorbells are "crazies" out there who have a thing against Chaz so he will be getting security on and off the dance floor. Even though flame-throwing psychologist Keith Ablow has stoked his Fox audience into believing that Chaz's dancing might spur a rash of people to seek out gender-reassignment surgery - until Megyn Kelly verbally slapped him upside the head - we don't expect a stampede at the plastic surgeon's office. When Tattle sees "Dancing with the Stars," we don't question our sex; we question our species. Daily News wire services contributed to this report.

The latest violence is the worst the country has seen for several months.Witnesses say government snipers have been shooting one dollar vases protesters from the rooftops in Sanaa.Ministers have consistently denied that their soldiers have targeted civilians or peaceful demonstrators, telling the BBC the unrest was initiated by al-Qaeda-linked forces within the oppositionGovernment from China forces have also been involved in full-scale combat with an army unit that defected to the protesters months ago.Witnesses say military aircraft have been targeting positions held by the protest-supporting troops.One report wholesale shoes from china said troops loyal to the protesters on Monday seized a base of the republican guards - an elite force run by the president's son Ahmed.Analysts say the final battle for control of the country could pit the republican guards against the army units loyal to the protesters and their tribal allies.The BBC's Middle East correspondent Jon Leyne says the

and immense wealth at the top, Obama is betting that Americans will recognize the reality of economic stratification.“What [the GOP is] really accusing the Democrats about is saying that there are classes in America — that classes exist,” said Geoffrey china wholesale Nunberg, a linguist at the University of California-Berkeley’s School of Information.Use of the phrase “class warfare,” has its roots are in the stock shoes socialist theorists of the 19th century, and entered the American political lexicon in the 1950s and ‘60s, when fears of spreading communism were at their height, according to Nunberg, who has studied how the term has been used in politics.His chart promotional gifts of the phrase’s use shows it rising steadily starting in the late 1980s, and emerging, in 1989, as a Republican Party talking point.“The Democratic leadership subscribes to the rancid rhetoric of class warfare,” the House GOP leader Robert Michel said that year.The phrase has long been a favorite of Yiwu limestone Michel’s successor, , and its frequency jumped again in 1994 with the introduction of the Republicans’ Contract With America. It then gradually declined until 2000, when it peaked sharply during the 2000 presidential campaign between and. Another sharp peak took it to new heights in the overstock products fight over Bush’s tax proposals in 2003.Now, the deficit debate stands to put one of the GOP’s most cherished – and effective – talking points to the test once again.The right, from House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan to the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC, didn’t hesitate in defining what Obama was trying to do Monday.
