I forgot Livejournal existed for, like, several months. It's just not likely that I'll come here and look at my friends list very often, so I guess I'll add a couple LJ blogs to my RSS reader and leave it at that.

Why "Daddoo"?

"Meatballs or Consequences"

Wakko Warner wins a meatball-eating contest in Sweden, at the cost of his life. G.R. (again with a silly Swedish accent, voiced by Jess Harnell who also plays Wakko) slaps a "Kaput" sticker on his forehead and starts to drag him away, but Yakko & Dot refuse to be separated from their brother.

They challenge Death to a game of checkers for Wakko's soul ("Chess is unknown to us"), and win by cheating, but Death laughs and tells them that winning at checkers doesn't count, and now they're *all* dead.

"That means we'll be like a family!" Yakko says, and the three of them start pestering him and calling him "Daddoo", until G.R. finally relents to let them go, "until such a time that I return—which won't be for a VERY long time."

Posted because my aunt wanted to know why we call my dad "Daddoo." Sorry, no youtubery, because that would have been ideal.

Suddenly June

From today's edition of Ceol:

16 June

The nearest celebration I could find was one at the Heritage Center in Chicago, and there's not much in the way of details on the site, at least that I could find in my half-assed scan.

It is entirely possible that a last-minute Chambana Bloomsday cabal will form and announce the takeover of some local beer-havin' establishment for purposes of Joycean amusement and edification. This old event page has loads of links.

Is it really three years since we last put one on?

Anyone local who's reading this and interested in the aforementioned shadowy activity, contact me pronto. I'll be at M&M's in a couple hours, if you prefer face-to-face interaction. Guys named David specifically encouraged to respond.
