This was Charles Schulz's final Peanuts comic strip that ran on this date in 2000.
The following is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the qestions. Just ponder on them. Just read the e-mail straight through, and you'll get the point. 1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world. 2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners. 3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant. 4 Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize. 5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress. 6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners. The point is, none of us remembers the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies.. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners. Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one: 1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school. 2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time. 3. Na ...

Five years after his death, singer Michael Jackson is generating a fortune and is the top-earning dead celebrity, raking in an estimated $140 million in the past year for his estate, Forbes said on Wednesday. He earned more than twice as much as singer Elvis Presley, who died in 1977 and came in second with $55 million, and three times more than cartoonist and Peanuts comic strip creator Charles Schulz, who took third place with $40 million. “Few celebrities prove the point that there is (financial) life after death better than Michael Jackson,” according to Forbes. It is Jackson’s second straight year atop the list. He regained the title in 2013, a year after being pushed into second place by actress Elizabeth Taylor. Jackson’s second album released after his death, “Xscape” debuted at No. 2 on the pop charts in the past year and the singer also appeared as a hologram at the Billboard Music Awards. Two Cirque du Soleil shows, “Immortal” and “One,” account for much of Jackson’s earni ...

The Longing for Belonging "And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near."1 There is deep within the heart and soul of every one of us a need and longing to belong. The one who has no sense of belonging and being connected in relationship to at least one meaningful companion or friend, is more likely than not to become physically ill, depressed, a patient in a mental institution, or even suicidal. It may not be the most desirable but we can live without being in a romantic relationship, but we cannot live healthily without having at least one (and preferably more) healthy relationships. Not belonging, not feeling loved and accepted and/or being rejected can be one of life's most painful experiences. Ralph Keyes in his book Is There Life after High School? writes that Mia Farrow has never forgotten the time every girl but Mia was asked to dance. Nor did Charles Schulz of "Peanuts" cartoon fame ever forget ...

First 3D 'Peanuts' Trailer Will Make You Feel All Warm and Fuzzy More than 30 years have passed since your favorite black-and-white beagle, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang graced the big screen — which may be hard to believe. But that changes next year. Based on the comic strip created by the late Charles Schulz, Peanuts has lived on largely through newspaper comics, MetLife commercials, reruns of classic TV specials (A Charlie Brown Christmas) and the occasional viral video. Throughout all these incarnations, however, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and their friends have always been portrayed as 2D, hand-drawn characters. In a new Peanuts film slated for 2015 from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios (which brought you Ice Age), their entire world enters 3D. Read more...

Founder and Publisher of Fantagraphics Books, widely considered the most important publisher of independent, creator-owned comics in North America, Groth, together with the late Kim Thompson, helped create and nurture the independent comics scene that emerged in the mid-1980's and is thriving today. As Mark Frauenfelder said on BoingBoing.com “His influence on the state of the contemporary American comics industry and on the art-form itself is difficult to overstate.” Fantagraphics introduced many readers to the Hernandez Bros.'

In 1947, Charles Schulz was working as an art instructor and cartoonist for a religious periodical when he began writing his own cartoon, “Li’l Folks,” and selling it to the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Saturday Evening Post. In 1950, he sold “Li’l Folks” to United Feature Syndicate, which renamed the strip “Peanuts,” a name Schulz never really liked, according to the Schulz Museum. The renamed cartoon made its syndicated debut on Oct. 2, 1950, appearing in eight newspapers. The four-frame debut strip, called “Good Ol’ Charlie Brown,” featured Charlie Brown skipping past Shermy and Patty, two characters who rarely appeared in later strips. In the last two frames, Shermy remarks, “Good Ol’ Charlie Brown … How I hate him!”
Charles Schulz's 'Peanuts' characters have become timeless classics, thanks to their long-lasting presence in newspapers and their many animated TV specials. (It's Arbor Day Again, Charlie Brown!)

Ladies and gentlemans, may I present, for your consideration, the most interesting man on Earth: Jamie Robinson. One Tuesday, he reversed Global Warming. He is the owner of toy trains. Many of them. He likes long walks on short beaches and knows every word to "We Didn't Start The Fire"...because he wrote it and was at every event mentioned in the song. The Hunt For Red October was loosely based on an experience he had in 4th grade. Charles Schulz named Linus' blanket after him (yes, the blanket is named "James"). He owns a PS6 but prefers the original NES system. His car is a rocket ship named Jackie O. His tears have healed diseased children...from long distance. He can raise and lower his blood pressure with his mind. He has mastered mind control (this is not a joke - trying saying "No" to him). He was asked to run for President of the United States but quit because, "Who really has the time". He wrote, directed and starred in "Mean Girls", but under the name "Tina Fey". He is the reason T ...

Charlie Brown and Sally are standing at the bus stop.  Cars are rushing past them, and Sally asks: “Who are all those people driving in those cars?”  Charlie answers, “Those are people going to work.”  Sally: “Work?”  Charlie: “They used to wait for the school bus like we’re doing.  Now they have to go to work every day for the rest of the lives.”  “Good grief,” Sally says, “Whose idea was that?”  (Charles Schulz, Peanuts, United Press Syndicate, Washington Post, 2.7.91)    Well, Sally, work was God’s idea, but not work as we often experience it.  For some people, work dulls the mind and numbs the heart.  Every day, it’s the same thing, over and over again: the same people, the same programs, and the same problems; the same reports for the same silly reasons; the same meetings with the same agenda.  The sameness of it all, the drudgery and boredom of it all, drives them crazy.   For some people, work is all-consuming; it fills nearly all their waking hours.  Amp ...
Rants and Raves for June 20, 2013: Welcome, summer, you have been missed! It seems like if I become a fan of someone, they die before they can finish their work: Steve Jobs, Charles Schulz, Walt Disney, and now Vince Flynn are four examples. Yesterday my favorite thriller author, Vince Flynn, died of prostate cancer. I will miss looking forward to his annual releases. I read that he was diagnosed with Dyslexia as a boy and received over 60 rejection letters before his first book, Term Limits, was published. He was the epitome of determination and persistence. The Atlanta Falcons have chosen a $1 Billion design for their new stadium. 20% of that will be funded by the taxpayers. I am very glad I do not live in Atlanta. The use of public funds is not necessarily the issue for me. Since there will be economic revenue to the city, regardless of the cost of a new stadium, some public funding is alright for me. But funding 20% of a $1 Billion dollar project is a total waste of taxpayer dollars. The Falc ...

So now I read that Man of Steel has cool action, but he's not much of a hero in the movie. Protecting others is an afterthought for the character. I hope not, since that's a huge part of 'Superman' in my opinion. "I love mankind, it’s people I can’t stand." -Charles Schulz

We spend most of yesterday leaning about Walt Disney and early animation and watching very early cartoons such as fantasmagorie (considered to be the first cartoon) and the first ever mickey mouse episode 'steam boat willie' later in the day i treated them to some 80's cartoons, he-man and she-ra. today we will be focusing on comic style animation and observing the progress of Garfield from Sunday paper comic strip, to tv cartoon, to big screen movie. and looking on the history of Jim Davis and other comic strip artist Charles Schulz

In the mid-to-late 1960s, guitarists Dave Davies and Jimi Hendrix, in search of a distinctive looking guitar with a powerful sound, started using the Flying V. The renewed interest created a demand ...
By Greg Kandra Like a lot of people of a certain age, I remember well the first time I heard this gospel proclaimed – and it wasn’t in church. It was in my parent’s den, in Rockville, Maryland, watching an 18-inch Philco black and white TV. The person proclaiming the gospel wasn’t a priest or deacon or minister. It was a little boy with a blanket. It was “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”A few weeks ago, there was a documentary on PBS about Charles Schulz, the creator of “Peanuts,” and he talked about how that show came about, and the battles he had to fight with CBS. The executives were nervous about not having a laugh track…nervous about using real children for the voices…and they were REALLY nervous about having that piece of scripture included. God forbid that you should have a Christmas special that actually mentions Christ! But Schulz stuck to his guns. The result is one of television’s most beloved and most popular Christmas specials. And it lives on, even in the age of the DVD. A c ...

We're almost there! Our Parish theme for this fourth week of Advent is “My Lord Comes to Me.” “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.” (Luke 1:42) When have you, as a family or as an individual, experienced confidence in the loving presence of God? Are you open to God’s response to long periods of preparation and expectation in your life?
LISTEN FULL FREE THE ALBUM: Vince Guaraldi Trio - A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz called on pianist extraordinaire Vince Guaraldi and his trio to compose and perform music that would reflect the humor, charm, and innocence of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the entire Peanuts gang for their 1965 Christmas TV special. It was a perfect match: Guaraldi strings together elegant, enticing arrangements that reflect the spirit and mood of Schulz's work and introduce contemporary jazz to youngsters with grace, charm, and creativity. "What Child Is This" touches on cool jazz's richly textured percussive nuances, while "The Christmas Song" reflects Christmas' relaxing, mellow moments. The renowned "Linus and Lucy" gives the Peanuts characters a fresh, energetic feel with its tantalizing meter changes, brilliant percussion, and dashing, humorous piano lines. "Christmastime Is Here," perhaps the album's most endearing and eloquent moment, is six minutes of soft, lullaby-like melodic and ...
