Caroll Spinney: 1933 - 2019

This one is a huge loss.

As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of Caroll. Over the years, he’s appeared in quite a few Blarg posts.

I’ve always been grateful for the personal letter and artwork he sent me back in 2010, but today I cherish that correspondence so much more.

Thanks for the memories, Caroll. And for being such a huge part of, and influence on my childhood.

The loss of a legend,


The coolest.

…and that’s pretty badass.

Grey doesn’t yet understand how cool this is,


The best birthday girl!

We’re so grateful for every single day that we get to spend with you… and are admittedly kind of shocked that you’re still around.

You’re the best, Mr. Fab, and we love you so much!

Where her thirteen started,


Happy Halloween!

We’re a-gonna win,


Fake news.

Unless you know something I don’t,


…and so I finished this forever ago.

Since then, I moved on to Susan Orlean’s The Library Book.

I promise to get better about updating soon,



I know it may seem like I sit at home all day long, drinking beer and updating The Blarg, but the truth is I spend much of my day writing.

Lately, most of my writing has been on long-form projects. Because of this, I sometimes write a short (most times comedic, other times not so much) to break up the monotony of those longer projects. But while these shorts are fun to write as an exercise, nobody ever really gets to read them.

To remedy this, I’ve decided to share them here. I’m doing this for two reasons:

1. I like to share! That, and it’s better than having them sit on my computer.

2. It’s my hope that someone might be inspired to actually do something creative with them. Want to film one as a short? Awesome. Interested in animating one? Go for it. Feel like performing one live onstage? I dare you. All I ask is that you give me credit and send me a copy of the final product.

The forty-seventh of Shady’s Shorts is called September 3rd, 2019.

…I keep waiting for the Blair Witch to appear.






Rainbows aren’t her thing,





Old Poop!
