If I were going to make a very personal list of the pleasures of the World Wide Web, it would include the fact that brings us Mike Barrier’s writing and research so frequently–which is huge improvement over sitting around and wondering when the next FUNNYWORLD might come out, as many of us did back in the 1970s.

Mike has just posted a transcript of his 1971 interview with Frank Tashlin. Among the illustrations are examples of Tashlin’s rather obscure, extremely strange newspaper feature VAN BORING; and there’s an MP3 clip from the interview. If you’ve got any common sense at all–and you do–you’ve already clicked over and are reading the interview right now.
