Project put away

About two months ago, I began a large, secret, Vic and Sade project, which I promised to surprise you with.

While the project exists, it will not be completed any time soon, as I have lost the drive to work on it.  I have also lost the drive to complete several projects for the left-hand side of the main site.

This doesn't mean I don't like Vic and Sade anymore or will quit blogging.  What it really means is that LIFE sometimes punches you in the nose or shakes your shoulder or you just get bored.  Both of those things have happened and what I can only describe as a major drive to do these projects has since fizzled out.

One day I hope to surprise you all and have a finished product to show you.

The Simpsons and Vic and Sade

I've mentioned it before (perhaps in a podcast or two) ... I think there is a whole lot of Vic and Sade in The Simpsons' tv cartoon.

First of all, there are a million characters.  There's no way to know them all, so they are fan cataloged - something that's also been done for Vic and Sade.  The Simpsons' characters are a bit oddball, as are Vic and Sade's characters.

As mentioned last week, Vic and Sade get zanier the farther from the family/work nucleus you go.  The same can be said about The Simpsons.

And today, as I was looking at a "map" of Springfield (the ambiguous town - perhaps in Illinois, that The Simpsons live in), I saw several places that looked "familiar" or at the very least, reminded me of places in Vic and Sade:

Museum of Sadness and Oppression

New Bedlam Home for the Emotionally Interesting
I realize that these aren't taken directly from Vic and Sade, but they are close enough to make you wonder if they were indeed inspired by Paul Rhymer.
