so, it turns out that this last thursday was the anniversary of Elliott Smith's death, and i didn't even realise until matt said something that nite, so i didn't say anything about him in my comic post that day.
Elliott Smith, though, was a fantastic musician who is greatly missed. he's the reason the main character of this comic is named Elliott, and he's the reason why it's spelled with two Ts. Elliott Smith is one of my most favourite musicians, and i first heard of him from the movie The Royal Tenenbaums (my all-time favourite movie), because his song "Needle in the Hay" is on the soundtrack. in remembrance of Elliott, here's a video of one of his songs, which i guess is called "My New Freedom," but i always thought it was called "I'm Doing Okay, Pretty Good" until tonite. as far as i know, it was never officially released, but it's amazing.

and here's an amazing version of Elliott's song "Say Yes" as performed by Ira Glass and Lucy Wainwright Roche.

also, i recently bought some awesome books from the fantastic Sam Spina! you can read his amazing comics and buy his books from his site at http://www.spinadoodles.com/
