Somebody on Twitter mentioned the TV series by the same name the other day (there are two seasons so far) and so I decided to look it up. What I found instead was the original film made in 2014 and OMG it is a tonic, just what I needed. It’s a “mockumentary” about four vampires sharing a house in New Zealand and I can’t even begin to tell you how funny it is. Apparently it’s only on Movistar until the end of the month so will have to rewatch again before that. Hard to imagine how the TV series will match up, but if I can find it I’ll certainly give it a go.
Well this made my day! And made me laugh out loud. Gary Larson has come out of retirement and is producing new material on his website. While it isn’t a return to daily cartooning (at least not yet?) it’s great to have him back. Also didn’t realise he had this website, so I can go there anytime now for my own daily fix.
I actually “met” him once (for all of 30 seconds) at a book signing in Toronto. He looked a bit like a cornered wild animal sitting at that desk, but hey, he spelled my name right. If you’re not familiar with his work then have a look at the website’s front page.
