Cats, Dogs, Badgers, Moose…Wildlife and Deep Thoughts!
Who says August is a slow news season? Not around here. See that picture? It's to announce that Freewayriding and I have now issued an historic musical collaboration. Gilbert & Sullivan, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lennon & MacCartney, they have nothing on Riding & Gheorgheni.
It all started in Peer Review, which is where all really ridiculous ideas start. I wrote a guide entry called 'How Many Cats Should You Have in Your Car?'. It's one of those erudite entries for which the Edited Guide is so justly famous. While working on the illustration, FWR got inspired to write a lyric. So I got inspired to write a tune in revenge. Recording happened. You will find the result in this week's issue, along with many, many other wonderful things which we will give you a preview of here.
Quote of the Week:Not since I discovered the world not to have been made in six days of twenty-four hours each, had I been so intellectually and spiritually upset. I had held a revolution as a noble and sacred instrument, destroying evil and leaving men free to be wise and good and just. Now it seemed to me not something that men used, but something that used men for its own mysterious end and left behind the same relative proportion of good and evil as it started with.
– Ida Tarbell, All in the Day's Work: An Autobiography, pp143-144
