…my good friend Marla Campbell asked if I’d put Mark Linn-Baker and Bronson Pinchot (AKA Cousin Larry Appleton and Balki Bartokomous of Perfect Strangers fame) in a header here on The Blarg.

I said sure, and quickly made up the banner you see above.

NOTE: For those of you happening upon this post late, here’s the banner again:

Cousin Larry and Balki forever immortalized on "The Blarg."

But I told Marla I’d do it on one condition: That she create an illustration of Cousin Larry and Balki, and then send me a photo of it when it was done.

A few days later, I got this in an email:

Cousin Larry and Balki forever immortalized by Marla Campbell!

Clearly, Marla is a woman of her word. Check out more of her work here.

Don’t be ridiculous,

PS: Any other header requests, dear readers?

Back from Belgium!

…but we were in Germany and Belgium for two weeks.

The good news is I’m back, so look for a plethora of posts pronto.

So many Ps,

…which clearly illustrates that I need a new hobby.

It’s come a long way from number one,

…doesn’t look too different from the site’s top five commenters in 2012.

Top five commenters on "The Blarg" in 2013.

My mom still holds the crown for top commenter with an even 200 comments (nearly doubling last year’s total), but my good friend Brandon Doherty moved up a notch, stealing the #2 position from my Uncle Bob. Both Paul Spooner and Jocco slipped out of the top five, only to be replaced by Kate C. and my dad.

Now, let’s see which of you really love me in 2014.

And… they’re off,

…asked why Journey is in the banner this week.

Lately, I’ve been going about picking images for the site’s banner in a different way: I ask KB to say the first word that comes to mind. I then do a Google image search for that word and pick the best (or sometimes worst) option available.

Last night, KB’s word was “journey.” So there you have it.

But even if KB hadn’t picked it, do I need an excuse to have Journey in the banner?

I think not,

…because in addition to finally breaking the half-million views mark, the site was also viewed by people in 174 countries!

High-five!
