This Week in Milford

January 9, 2017

And Then On Monday…


Aaron Aagard went to Kill The Noise where he hooked up with Molly (whatever that means) and grooved away Saturday night, producing this eye popping panel of freaky kids all enraptured with Kill The Noise. What is to the extreme left of the panel in the foreground? A face? Some other body part attached to a strand of hair? Señor Wences?

And then on Monday…we’re right back where we were last week! Mike and Ken are still building their case, dithering away about what to do. Wait, was that Gil? Was he coaching? Do you think he might get a clue about Aaron’s deficits in attention and energy? It’s still January, so we should probably wash, rinse, repeat a few more time before we expect significant action from Gil.


  1. I may have solved the mystery of the figure on the left in Panel 1. I think it’s the back of someone with ponytail, wearing a striped halter top. Feh. I would have preferred Señor Wences.

  2. Panel 1 could be a scene from Laugh-In what with the broad in the polka dot sports bra tank top half shirt.

  3. Whether he actually coaches or not, Gil always makes time in practice to release baby birds from his hands.

  4. The over-the-top enthusiasm of Mr Narration Box is infectious! Nothing captures the uninhibited magical freedom of EDM like the adjective, “big”. What a weekend for AA; a “big” weekend! Please oh please can we has more Big? Big Big Big.

    On an unrelated note, there’s lots of big heavy thinking in the P2 background.

  5. g2 beat me to it. I love the players in the background pondering the depth of Gil’s coaching.

    “I say, did we truly cover this in basketball 101? This feels more of a 205 level lesson.”
    “And what if Ken yells switch, but someone else also yells switch? Do we double switch?”
    “Do you think God could yell ‘Switch’ so quietly that not even He could hear Himself?”
    “Hmmm” *chin stroke*

    but billytheskink wins the comments today. Now I’m trying to figure out what Gil is supposed to be doing with his hands.

  6. Wait a minute, gents, just realized Rave Girl Possibly Named Molly has 4 identical bracelets that match her top, and they all line up in the same place while she’s dancing. Are they magnetized? Regardless, I now know what every female in my life is getting for Christmas next year. Gil Thorp needs to take its place as fashion arbiter.

  7. Having just perused the National Institute for Drug Abuse teen-info website, I’m puzzled. The effects of MDMA don’t include anything like lethargy or short attention span. Aaaaron’s symptoms appear to be a much closer match for, say, sleep deprivation. Case closed, Encyclopedia Brown!

  8. John S is right about the teen site, but according to the main site, NIDA DrugFacts, there are aftereffects to MDMA, including depression and impaired concentration, which can persist for some days. Aa Aa’s missing his defensive assignment, comparable to throwing to the wrong base, is consistent with the NIDA description.

  9. My dad’s business has been feast-or-famine for 40 years. Today was a feast day, hence the late entry.
    Soap opera aside, P1 has to be at the Mos Eisley Cantina on the planet Tatooine. How else could you explain the Galactic Empire(or maybe the Rebel Alliance) buzzing around the joint? That would also explain part of Chewbacca’s hair(don’t think he’s flashing himself) protruding Stage Left.
    And being a jazz fan forever, I’d venture to say they’re not spinning Duke Jordan’s “Flight to Denmark” or John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme”. Nope, don’t think Our Hero is lip-synching “A Love Supreme” from The Trane or “So What” from Miles Davis. The assessments from our writers today are hilarious and pretty well sums up the scene. I will concede that “Bitches Brew” MIGHT grace the scene, given the circumstances.
    P2: Is Aardvark wearing a mop on his head? As long as The Hardy Boys are observing and sizing up the scene, they might wanna take a stab at that one too, though conceding once again that that issue carrys 2/3 less weight than what’s discussed in P3.

  10. P2: Hardy Boys Adventures: The Masticated Hair Mystery

    Today’s headline from the Milford Enquirer

    “Exclusive: Molly’s Foot Prints Traced to O. J.’s Garage!!!!”

  11. Huh, thinking about T. Drew Hardin’s Mos Eisley comment got me to look up a post back from when I was first starting to do this whole TWIM thing

  12. I’m pretty sure T Drew meant the Mos Eisley reference in fun, but crikey, look at those lights! And since this is winter, they must be indoors with a gigantic window behind them. WHY did The Chief not show us the stars all cramming together as the Grandey Ballroom cracks the speed of light?

  13. “Welcome to our exclusive Kill the Noise rave! Please enjoy our fancy ‘levitating boob’ decorations.”

  14. Touché, drewfunk, had to pull over on the shoulder, I was laughing so hard.
