Oh, look! It’s an Olympics themed comic.
Posted during the London Olympics 2012.
What a coincidence, hey?
A tribute comic to Peter Falk.
This comic was something that came to me after hearing the news of the death of Peter Falk on June 23rd, 2011.
Peter was most famously known for his portrayal of Lt. Columbo on TV.
I used to love watching Columbo when I was younger and I believe that even though Peter ended up being very typecast after playing this role, he made it his own. It is a truly unique character and one that I believe will never be able to be done as well as the original.
(I feel the same way about Christopher Reeves portrayal of SuperMan)
There are very few actors today that could end up in a hit TV show that ran for so many years, especially if they had a glass eye.
(At the age of three, his right eye was surgically removed due to cancer.)
As well as an actor,Peter was also an artist. A man of many talents, who never let anything stop him.
It was terrible to think that Peter did not even remember his time as Columbo, due to dementia in his later years.
And although I am saddened by the news of his passing, I will be happy that he taught me a very important life lesson when growing up – keep asking questions until you figure out the answer.
Oh, and just one more thing…..
According to some very reliable sources, the Rapture is going to happen today (May 21st, 2011)
For all you losers who don’t get taken up, I have grabbed a screenshot of the foursquare checkin screen so you can read it an weep!
Ner Ner! I got a rapture badge and you don’t!
So many location apps. So little time…
There is little doubt that location based applications with social media aspects are the big ‘thing’ at the moment.
People just love to show where they are and to tell other people about it.
Do not get me wrong – I love a little bit of Foursquare, Places or Gowalla action.
Let’s face it though – it really is the digital equivalent of marking your territory, and leaving a scent behind to tell others you have been there.
But so what?
Humans (just like animals) have always been territorial. Defining the places we live in and own, helps us define who we are – to both ourselves and others.
And now that I can get a badge to prove I go to my local coffee shop more than you, perhaps I can stop peeing on the door?
