coffee and strange

In which ‘strange’ means ‘everything’ because everything is strange. This blog is mostly concerned with books, films, history, and general badassery, and is run by someone who may or may not be a raving lunatic.

“Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.”

—   C. S. Lewis (via victoriousvocabulary)

As much as I love Calvin & Hobbes and would love to see more material, this makes me really happy because it’s kind of a brilliant display of artistic integrity.
It’s not like Watterson is rich or anything. He could make a shitload of money from selling the rights but he refuses because he doesn’t think it would work for the story.
He also won’t make any kind of merchandise deals at all, and decided to stop writing the comic strip after ten years because he felt that the characters had run their course and going any further would be milking it. PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE. This is how you do it.
