Here's tonight's Sam Hill page--more on the Watkinson family, split in half
by the sexes, as the male members (ha! male members, get it?) are sent off to
work with their father in the Bradley Beaumont oil fields.
Okay, now my rant: Have you read this annoying, bitchy, over-anal-retentive-lytical
article by this Gina Barreca at The Chronicle, concerning Dan Clowes' New Yorker cover?
This woman picks apart his depiction of an "Archie Comics-type" lad pinning up his PhD
back in his old room, at his parents' house, and just berates Clowes for his depiction of
PhDs being ineffectuals, adding that this is not at all a relevant study in today's society...
What?... Is this why I work at a pizza restaurant next to college grads? If there are
people with Bachelor and Master degrees doing not-a-fucking-thing with their education,
jerkin' off making pizzas and drinking beer all night long, then I'd be willing to wager
that there're a few PhD-ass-draggers out there as well. She later continues on to
attack Clowes (and those at The New Yorker), accusing them for being "jealous" that
they didn't work hard (with their mommy and daddy's money) to get PhDs themselves...
In the words of Robert Crumb's White Man character: "What a cunt!" I am so sick of these
fucking intellectuals shitting on people who didn't just "work hard" in a fucking school, but who
also had to work hard for many, many years afterwards to get to where they are. Every fucking
asshole that goes through college thinks the world owes them a living. Maybe SHE'S the one
who's jealous that she's not on the cover of The New Yorker--aww, poor baby. Maybe you
should've learned to draw comics instead of learning how to be a wind-bag? But you
can't EASILY achieve notoriety that way, can you? Can't attend fundraising dinners at
The Met by just toiling away in your room drawing comic books for your own personal pleasure
and satisfaction. The fucking intellectuals have found comics...and I can't wait until they've
tired of it, like everything else they've grown tired of blowing hard about.
Here's a link to her horseshit article:
