If you must watch a romantic comedy, you should be able to fast forward through the boring parts. Like all of it.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Romantic Dramas are worse.
I’ll take your word for it.
I agree that is the only way too watch a chick flik.
If you have to watch them, the faster the better.
Blahahaaha atta boy Binky!
It’s good to know some women agree!
Binky you are a Wombie with better ideas than me. I often watch romantic chick flicks with Michelle & I never thought of that idea.
Next time if I can just pry the remote from her female vice like grip…
I suggest letting her keep the remote so she will assume she has control, while you, unbeknownst to her, have a universal controller with which you can ramp up the speed without her noticing (if you do it slowly and with stealth).
Oh I have changed back to my WordPress.com site & didn’t update the details in the previous comment http://ynot60.com
The many faces of Tony!
I thought another change was due since you hadn’t made one in the last few weeks!
The great part about the fast forward is you don’t have to listen to all that romantic drivel. (I can say that. My wife doesn’t read comics on the internet…even mine.
Actually, with current technolgy, you can get the sound during the fast-forward, and still have it come out understandable!
That’s the best way to go if you don’t want anyone to notice you sped things up. What? No, that’s normal for people in love to walk/talk/drive that fast.
It’s a bonus in that you don’t have to listen to it, but it also makes it hard to pretend to others that you’re just watching a movie where everyone is hyper.
HA! A little Charlie Chaplin type madness! Ha,ha,ha
It’d be fun to watch the old slapstick films at high speed, and with the silent ones you wouldn’t have to worry about missing the dialogue.
Hahaha – I hope she doesn’t make him watch that movie in super-slow-mo as pay-back! 🙂
Oh-oh. Now you’ve given her a great idea for retribution!
I agree whole-heartedly!
I appreciate having a superhero on my side.
Okay it’s a chick flick that she should have watched by herself. He’s not going to have a very good Valentine’s day. Just a feeling.
Have a terrific day and Happy Valentines day. 🙂
Chances are there will be consequences!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you, too.
Do I smell a follow-up strip?
There probably should be, but I didn’t make one. In lieu of that, you could imagine Binky in place of Winky in the dog house strip.
Now Binky… I have a feeling there will be no Chocolate for you later! (if you males can do it, I wonder if I could sneak it by my DH when he watching one of his gazillion favorite movies AGAIN… do you think he would notice?)
I fear you may be right about the lack of chocolate!
I think it’d be difficult to fast forward through someone’s favorite movie without them noticing. No matter how much you’d like to. You’d need some sort of variable-speed DVD player where you could slowly increase the speed.
The Sixth Sense comes to mind. Not that I’ve actually tried it
They had a variable-speed DVD player in the movie?
Interesting thought for valentines day. I have a comic on this precise topic all storyboarded but when I can actually get it out is anybody’s guess. I can’t relate to people who run out of ideas. I have the opposite problem. So many storyboards, so little time. But the good news (or bad news depending on your P.o V.) is that I am getting faster at the drawing.
As for me, I’m not a huge fan of chick flicks, but what I really hate is endless car chases with senseless crashing and pyrotechnics. I surreptitiously fire up my ipod during that crap.
Many ideas seem to be common among cartoonists. I guess sometimes we see things in the same way. Writing the cartoon takes far less time than actually producing the artwork for me, so I have a similar backlog of ideas.
It seems we’re definitely prone to liking certain types of movies which tend to annoy the opposite sex.
Modern society expects us, the general masses, to behave as robots. And that includes only thinking when ordered to do so. People who have accepted this often find that, when the limitations are removed, they don’t know what to do, and so proclaim “”I’m all out of ideas!”
Those of us who don’t, are the ones who eventually realize “Ack! I have too many ideas!” Unfortunately, most of the time you can’t just walk up to one of the “out of ideas” people and get them to work on one of your ideas.
Yes, thinking is rather subversive. You’re not supposed to ask questions. You’ve been trained all your life to be a mindless consumer. So stop thinking and get out there and buy stuff!
Now if I could just come up with a way to control the mindless masses to work on all my ideas. . .
I wonder if I can get away with this with my wife next time 🙂
I take no responsibility for the consequences of any such attempt.
I don’t know how you manage to get the expressions so life-like, what a true bloke!
The expressions are rather subtle in this one, but I’m glad they came across. Twink would probably be just as annoyed with Binky for only wanting to watch movies where things blow up.
Hunh…I’ll have to try that. Why don’t I ever think of these things? “Hey, Honey, let’s watch The Notebook at hummingbird speed!” 😀
Hummingbird speed! I like that. The way you put it, it actually sounds romantic. Who wouldn’t want to watch it at hummingbird speed?
One more sleep before a new post …….. yay!!
And hopefully the last sleep in the dog house. . .
I have my own tv. 🙂
That’s one way to avoid the battle.
If the woman is beautiful i see no reason in rushing it.
Just mute the volume and write some poetry at the same time. lol
You romantic, you! I suppose I should expect no less from Sir Richard.
