Why you’re glad you’re not me

Yes, yes, I gave in. I went and bought a copy of the Hallmark edition of the new A Charlie Brown Christmas book adaptation, even though I already owned the standard bookstore edition.¬† I’m thinking about doing a picture spread on all the adaptations that have been put out of …

It’s Springtime, Snoopy

Just added to the shelves of the AAUGH.com reference library… well, not to the shelves, they’re pretty full, but to one of the piles near the shelves (I really do have to get this all straightened out one day) is It’s Springtime Snoopy, which is really a beginning English language …

That Racer X Illustrated piece

Well, I’ve got my hands on the Peanuts-covered issue of Racer X Illustrated which I mentioned earlier. It’s apparently not on the stands quite yet — I checked my local Borders yesterday, and they still had copies of the previous issue out (which means that the next issue should be …
