The Ambassador Hotel in the Catskills. Built in 1910, it was first called The Gamble Farm, then Cedar Inn and in 2921, renamed the Ambassador. It’s final incarnation before abandonment was Catskill Funland. The only thing I could find on Funland (besides a few forums that referenced it out of nostalgia) was a lawsuit involving a grown ass man who hurt himself on the kiddie bumper cars after his daughter took a sharp turn and he bumped his elbow real hard. He sued Funland, but the case was dismissed because c’mon dude, nut up.

For some reason, people love sending me photos of their cats with my books, and they’re always amusing, but this one is the clear winner for forever and always. c/o the Cat Overlord Book Club

Julia Wertz on Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? and Spent | The Comics Journal -

mikedawwwson:



A NNNEEEWWWWWW episode of TCJ Talkies is up at The Comics Journal. Julia Wertz came on the show to talk about Roz Chast’s “Can’t we talk about something more pleasant?” and Joe Matt’s SPENT. I’ve been wanting to discuss SPENT with someone for a long time. It’s a book I think about a lot, and probably could have devoted even more time to it than we did.

Mike Dawson and I talked about Roz Chast’s Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? and Joe Matt’s Spent on the latest TCJ Talkies podcast. I’m a fan of both those books, but I really can’t recommend Roz Chast’s new book enough, it’s poignantly depressing, which is the highest compliment I can give. I think the best books aren’t ones that are pleasant and uplifting, but rather the ones that get in your head and just ruin you for days. But are also funny.
