Seth MacFarlane in today's Examiner

In today's Washington Examiner (February 22, p. 20), there's an Associated Press interview by Sandy Cohen, in which Seth MacFarlane is asked about doing both his animation voice work and his Academy Award presenter jobs.

The article is also excerpted in the Express, which leaves out the animation question.

Seth 'Family Guy' MacFarlane interview in Express

Seth 'Family Guy' McFarlane has an interview in today's free Express paper, reprinted from the LA Times.

The Express cropped the last question which totally changed the tenor of the end of the interview. The last Q&A was:

How did it make you feel?

Like I had no spine.

Catching up with comics in the Post

Comic Riffs looks at a couple of dunderheaded decisions in the Style section –

Doonesbury shrunk by almost an inch in the latest redesign, but it’s back at a bit larger now:

and Frazz, which has been exiled to appearing sometimes on the Kid’s page is missing this week because of a Halloween story which has a naked kid in a tree - god, you just can’t make this stuff up. The kids flip past, in today’s paper “TV report on breast self-exam bares all” and “The Dark Side of Peter Pan” book review to get to the Kid’s page, and they’re then protected from cartoon nudity. Anyway, here’s the story with the rationalization “
There was no way this could run in KidsPost so we decided to hold it out for a week.”:

In yesterday’s Style section (not the trend here), there’s a TV report on how inappropriate Family Guy is, at least as far as Microsoft is concerned:

Seth MacFarlane's new animation for Burger King

A few days ago, I linked to a NYTimes article about Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy project. A rep from Burger King's ad agency wrote in to say that while "Exclusive Cavalcade content will be presented by BK on beginning September 10" there's a sneak peak up now. Which actually looks rather dementedly amusing. Plus she said nice things about the blog...

Couple of comic art things in NY Times

One story on the Family Guy animator "Serving 3 Brands: Burger King, Google and Seth MacFarlane," By BROOKS BARNES, New York Times August 18, 2008 and that bastard mix of art and commerce to quote Mr. Spiegelman.

Another story is on some Watchmen movie nonsense - "Judge Backs Fox on Rights to Superhero Movie," By MICHAEL CIEPLY, New York Times August 19, 2008.
