The way I hear it, the best cure for the party from the night before is leftover bacon and sausage pizza and warm nog.
My wife, apparently, did not enjoy 2013, what with my many trips to the emergency room, and her mother’s many trips to the hospital, but I’m a different kind of person, I fondly remember all the trips HOME from the hospital, so…good times.
But as we say goodbye forever to 2013, never to be recalled, unless we still have bills from last month to pay, we finish with the MOST popular and LEAST popular Bun Toons of the previous year.
The winner humbled your bunny blogger…mostly because it wasn’t even remotely about me.
Well, it worked. HOO boy did it work. The Bun Toons got to feel for a week what it must be like to be Neil Gaiman for a day. He linked, we got avalanched, fun was had by one and all.
Please….. the experiment is over, no need to do it again. I feel all dirty about getting all those page hits the first time.
The SECOND of my ego-destroying entries today, comes from the LEAST popular Bun Toon of the year.
I’ve been playing music and singing since I was about five years old, and for a good chunk of my twenties, it was my primary source of income. Marriage and Batman curtailed the chart-topping success that was just inches from my grasp, but I like to keep my hands moving and my throat warbling whenever I can trap an audience in a room.
Last summer, my friend, singer-songwriter Glenn Reid, released a new jingle jangle country-pop adult contemporary single that I played and sang harmonies on, and I thought I’d take a moment to promote it on my Bunny Blog, since I don’t get a chance to show off my fingers and pipes all that much around here.
Apparently, if you don’t mention Neil Gaiman or Batman, the numbers just aren’t there.
If ANYONE clicks to the link, there’s some fun country-pop songs there that Glenn wrote and sang, and I sing back-up and play keyboards on….heck the page is full of ‘em!
Next year, we write a song ABOUT Neil Gaiman and Batman and send this internet into a tizzy…
Since this is a celebration of last year’s ego-destroying moments from the Bun Toons, I thought I’d finish the retrospective with a Bun Toon that was fairly well received (though not quite top five material), and perfectly demonstrates why ego is the enemy of us all.
Enjoy your new year, Bunny Peeples. I’ll be back soon with ALL-NEW Bun Toons for the needs of a 2014 type of audience.
Everything else is SO last year.
