Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

A Really Gud Thing

A really rather very nice man has just sent me this image, and I'm so excited about it, I wanted to share it with the world, on the off chance that one other person in the world might find it as interesting as I have.

It's drawn by the genius that is Paul McDermott, formally of the Doug Anthony All Stars and currently (as far as I know) of Gud and someone I once touched on his arm at 2 in the morning and held his cigarette and that was the high point of my life to date (recorded for posterity here. Jesus, that was four years ago.) He drew it back stage at a venue in Australia in 2002. I love that he's put so much effort into something that won't be seen by many people at all. It's entitled "The Fractured Dream of Herman Pym".

Anyway. That's made my day.

(Here it is on its side - the reason I'm including this is because, by turning it the right way up, I've managed to shrink it. But to see it in better detail, click on this picture and you'll see it all massive and in detail. God, I love that man.)
