Comic #3

Sorry, it's been over two months since my last post. We just moved and I'm working two jobs right now, so the fun stuff (blogging) has to be put on hold sometimes. But I'm actually working on an audio file right now that I'm going to put up on my blog with a slideshow to go along with it. I'm not going to tell you what it is right now, it's a surprise. Anyway, I thought I would share with you the third comic I've created. So here it is:

Okay, if you don't get this one, I'm not going to explain it to you. "The Name Game" (or The Banana Song) was written by Shirley Ellis in 1964 as a children's sing-a-long rhyming game. The Name Game reached #3 on Billboard's Hot 100 in 1965. Here's a video of Shirley performing The Name Game (The white bar goes away after five seconds, I'm not sure why it's there):

The Name Game has showed up in various movies and tv shows. My favorite instance is in the movie "The Money Pit" starring Tom Hanks and Shelley Long. In fact, I chose the name Brad in the word bubble in the comic because Tom Hanks picks the name Brad while he's singing the song. Here's the clip:

If you've never seen this movie, watch it, WATCH IT NOW! Unless you're busy, then watch it later. That's all I've got for today, check back again for more, hopefully it won't be more than two months next time.
