Female Trouble

Click: Female Trouble

 

It’s always been my fondest wish to one day be surpassed by my legal heir, Sam. I just didn’t think it would happen so fast. The illustration above is his and it’s a product of talent applied diligently over a long stretch of time. He likes to draw dangerous women. It fits perfectly here, because Michhael Feldman likes to write about dangerous women. This is his lyric and I especially love the doctor’s line, “I could kill you but it’d cost you double.” I have long ago put up the white flag of surrender in the ongoing battle of the sexes. Take the democracy we call home for instance: In matters like cable TV, where Sam and I agree the more options the better, there are five votes to be cast, one each for the men in the family—the other three are cast by his mother and my wife, Linsey, fondly referred to as She Who Must Be Obeyed. I realize she is probably saving me from myself. If I got everything I wanted, I would not be able to keep building character at this late date. I would most likely be backsliding into some sort of happy, unchallenged, cable-watching couch-lump. So here I am, at my blog, talking about dangerous women, female trouble and weighted democracies when I could be watching Adult Swim or something. Reluctantly productive. P.S. Ignore the drumming in this demo or pretend that it’s good—my “flat tire shuffle” must of really had a flat.
