Sometimes the old-fashioned way still has its charm. At least for old fogies.
Call me an old folgie. I don’t own an iPad, just this laptop I’m typing on. But give me a good book any day.
Fraz, you should give it a try!
I guess books are ok for some things. Like building forts!
Or leveling your table…
Yes it may only have one story
but it is a real book, one that you
can hold and feel the pages as
they are turned 🙂 I like the new
concept on tablet form too but
that doesn’t mean that a good
old fashioned book is obsolete
either. Try one Fraz and enjoy
it while they are still around 🙂
Bedtime story books are pretty good I guess. I just like the iPad better!
Great comic strip as always Peter,
I always enjoy your brilliance my
great friend 🙂 Enjoy your Monday
and have some fun 🙂
Thanks, Andro. You too.
I agree 100%
That iPads are better?
I do love reading a few books old school. LOTR is one of them.
I don’t like old schools or even new schools!
I love the smell of a good book. I’m still doing it the old fashioned way.
Have a terrific day. ☺
The old fashioned way is the only way!
The LOTR Books are a lot heavier than iPads he should reconsider hahaha
Yeah and you can’t play games on a book either!
I’m with you, Chris!
I’m glad some people are!
Don’t get me started on Lord of The Rings….I’m with Fraz on this one 🙂
Yay! Lord of the rings goes on forever!
I don’t have an ipad and I love my books. I should try reading one, Fraz 😉
I like comic books!
I also like comic books….and that’s also a BOOK Fraz
A lot of people don’t think so!
I’ll confess, I never enjoyed reading.
“The Hobbit” was the only book I ever voluntarily read and I only read it because I thought it would help me finish an Apple II walk though video game of “The Hobbit”. 😉
I’d rather watch the movie! Or play the game!
Oddly enough, the Apple II game was strictly reading. Like a “Chose Your Own Adventure” for the computer. 😉
Oh. I dunno if I’d like that kind of game.
Oh, let me count the ways!!!
Sometimes you just don’t need technology.
*says the person who just bought a brand new hardback copy of _Something Wicked This Way Comes_*
Ray Bradbury really knew how to create wonderful worlds.
Truly. It is one of my all time favorite stories. I picked up the movie and the book together. Entirely timeless… something I am having a hard time saying about most of the ebooks I have picked up lately.
The golden age of literature has probably long since passed. I doubt most of today’s works will stand the test of time.
I sincerely want to believe that untrue. There have been some memorable books in the last few decades, but the world of dreams in shrinking in the face of discovery. Whilst not necessary a bad thing, it does test the bounds of imagination.
I definitely believe the golden age of film is defunct. All of the blockbusters now are remakes, and some of them were of B movies the first time out of the box.
I hope you’re right about literature. It seems that the mainstream publishers aren’t much interested in anything new. Much like the film industry. Films are so expensive to produce these days, they only want blockbusters. There have been some good animated films lately, though.
Animation is one of the industries which will continue to promote timeless content. They use the medium for entertainment whilst using social moral or historical context to sustain the story. Even with their production costs, they have staying power because the field cannot be strewn with an infinite number of titles. The talent is limited to create them.
I think what I find the most intriguing is the social commentary from about 60-80 years ago is relevant again.
At least some of the animated films are being produced by people who really know what they’re doing and who care. Like Pixar.
As much as things change, people really aren’t much different. We have the same wants and needs and flaws as all those who have gone before us.
The one good thing to come of Disney buying Pixar is the story integrity. Pixar has a slush pile to die for, and Disney has the money to make them all. Add to both the streamlined production, the schedule is better than every two years. If you have not looked into their collaboration, do. It looks like the old days of the Sherman brothers and Wooly Reitherman.
I haven’t really followed their progress of late, or what the buyout meant. They still seem to be producing quality stuff, which is good. The new movie is supposed to be excellent.
Oh, Fraz, there’s nothing like a “real” book. You should go on a shopping spree and buy a bunch and sit down each night with some chocolate, of course, and read. Let the story carry you into a new and adventurous world. You’ll love it. I haven’t ventured into the e-book world yet and I’m really not sure if I ever will. 🙂
Well maybe real books could be good. But they just kinda sit there with no moving parts!
Books… are those things still around?
Chris might be the only one who still has them!
Easy Fraz, you just go to Facebook, find the Lord of the Rings fan page & Like it
I could do that!
Boooooks <3 but I've never been a Lord of the Rings fan.
I’m a comic book fan!
Look like ‘the Wombania scrolls’ been found… I hope they are not going to find the mummies…
I dunno I bet mummies would be a lot more fun that old books!
