Jazz for Peanuts

A new CD had dropped: Jazz for Peanuts: A Retrospective of the Charlie Brown TV Themes. It’s mostly David Benoit, with a little bit of Winton, a little Kenny, and a little Vince. Available as a physical CD, or as an eco-friendly download.

And on that jazzy note, let me add this jazzy note for my U.S. readers. Tomorrow (possibly today as you’re reading this) is Election Day. Go. Participate. Do. Whether you’re doing it to be part of history or simply to renew your complaining license. Many of you, possibly most of you, aren’t going to vote on the same side of things as I am (well, since only one of the many things to vote on is national, I guess most of you can’t vote on the same side as I do for most things!), but that doesn’t matter. Even if your vote won’t mean anything this time, voting is your way of announcing that you’re someone who has to be treated well for next time. And if the lines are long, just celebrate the fact that so many people care.

Drive safely, and I’ll see you here next time. Same blog time, same blog channel.

Schulz’s Youth – still available!

I sometimes lament that┬áSchulz’s Youth, the book I compiled as the most complete collection of Schulz’s cartoons for the Church of God, is out of print. This is, after all material that is mostly not in print anywhere. However, when I say that, I should remember that “out of print” …
