The Far Side

Hi Everyone,

You may at some point find yourself looking for our old Far Side thread. Well we actually heard from a legal representative from Gary Larson, who requested it removed. This request was backed up by our own legal team. Please feel free to post links to The Far Side official site in this thread, just refrain from direct posting of comic strips as images.

Re: The Far Side

I'm just as happy to forget it ever existed. Tell Larson's lawyers that for me, will you?

Same here. I'll consider it the farther side.

His new stuff wasn't funny at all. Someone should tell him.

Re: The Far Side

Some of the new stuff was pretty funny and the only reason we posted images there was because just sharing a link doesnít make it easy for others to see the new ones.

Iíve never been able to wrap my head around his attitude. It was all the sharing of his older stuff that kept his name in peopleís minds. I had his site on my list of comics to check regularly so I was going to the official site but not everyone was so now heís losing exposure.

He retired because he ran out of ideas...and now we know he was 100% right in doing so.

Pfft. They could have at least stopped by the Marriage thread and offered up some advice.

They were probably pissed because no one would ever correct the spelling of Larson's name in the thread title.

Rick Beato is a music producer who does YouTube videos. He believes that in today's market, the bands who get a lot of exposure sell better than those who keep a tight grip on their rights. His latest example is that Jimi Hendrix is disappearing on Spotify.

That's what I was wondering!

It must be a bullet point on someone's CV.
