Let me tell you. Just getting an email from BillWatterson is one of the most mind-blowing, surreal experiences I have ever had. Bill Watterson really exists? And he sends email? And he’s communicating with me?
But he was. And he had a great sense of humor about the strip I had done, and was very funny, and oh yeah….
…He had a comic strip idea he wanted to run by me.
The full explanation of how it all happened is a great read and is available on Pastis’s blog. The strips Watterson contributed to as “Libby” are here, here, and here.
Here is how to tell if you are at the best party currently happening in America at any given moment: You turn around and there he is, mixing cocktails, cracking jokes, and making everything more awesome! Yeah he crashes normal people parties, yeah he assimilates naturally and perfectly, yeah he is the shit! Bill is a walking, talking memecon -an iconic meme. From SNL to Ghostbusters to Wes Anderson flicks, Murray has, more than just about anyone, had several ages of awesome.
There is, of course no way to summarize the enigma that is Bill Murray in just a few minutes but EclecticMethod offers this tribute Mixtape regardless. All Hail the Almighty Bill! CROSS THE STREAMS!
