You open up your heart and the truth comes out.

So no ecstasy for our man Aa Aa, but Molly? Oh thats different, yeah sure. Gotta be picky about our drug use here, dont wanna accuse anyone of doing anything they arent doing do we? Big difference between the two now. Molly, oh yeah, Molly. Thats a horse of a different color. Boy the look on his face in P3 is just priceless. Finally got caught with the hand in the cookie jar huh? Now we’ll have the big confession, tomorrow. Or maybe they can sqweeze one more day out of this back-and-forth before the story is told. I have a feeling Aa will try to convince Gil that Molly is really harmless and its effects have nothing to do with his performance on the court. We’ll see if Gil buys the rationalle.


  1. Red Molly or Black Lightning?

  2. Red hair and black leather: my favorite color scheme. I had the pleasure of see Richard Thompson play that live (solo) once. One of the only times I’ve seen a guitarist fret an entire song with all five fingers. Not just the occasional thumb, but the entire bass line, all the way thru – I was blown away. What a talent…

    Anyway, Molly == Girl. Just watch.

  3. Saturday: Aaaaron reveals that Molly is his girlfriend. Monday begins a series of blank panels until baseball season.

  4. Guessing that not only is Molly a girl, but one whose dancing sets off Aaaaron so much that he can’t enjoy his ‘house music’ without her. His muse to enjoy the music, if you will.

  5. @Downpuppy A classic song. I’d never heard of Red Molly, the outfit performing the hell out of that song. That’s probably the reason music will always be something I connect to with passion because songs can be approached in so many ways and even a song you revere by a genius like Richard Thompson can strike you in the gut in an unexpected way.

    @g2design Color me jealous. Richard Thompson’s guitar playing is transcendent. You obviously have a better knowledge of the vocabulary of guitar than I, but I’m sure what you’re describing is something inhuman in its dexterity.

    I’m gonna let this sit for a while. I’ll be back to comment on Saturday’s atrocity later. (If any of the team had thought of posting, be my guest. I don’t expect to get back to the computer until 5 or 6 east coast time. I will post tonight if nobody else does, because this one today is…whatever.)

  6. Gil Thorp to the Hardy Boys

    “…there is no chance, no untried operation
    All hope lies with him and none with meeee
    Imagine though the shock from isolation
    When he suddenly can speak and hear and seeee”

    P2: “GO TO THE MIRROR, BOY!!!!!”

  7. I’ve seen RT live a good half dozen times or more, mostly in smallish venues like McCarter Theatre or the Keswick, often supported by son Teddy and the late Pete Zorn. Not to be missed.

    As for Quad-A, I think his hairstyle comes courtesy Walter Lantz, if not Clay Smith or his antecedents.

  8. I didn’t appreciate the extensive overlap between TWIM commenters and admirers of Richard Thompson’s music. Neat!

  9. It’s like Batman stretching beyond the 2-day allotment from the network and keeping us hanging for, oh, being conservative in my estimate, 2-3 more days, TST(Thorpiverse Standard Time). Why The Riddler(or any other villain) left the room when he(or any other villain) had The Caped Crusaders by the balls, as they were sinking into a vat of nitric acid was anybody’s guess, maybe he and his gang were hungry and went down to McDonald’s to grab a bite to eat(guessing eliminating obstacles so that you can rule Gotham City works up an appetite) BUT at least issues, desperate or no, stayed within the 2-day window.
    No, we’re not guaranteed that Molly will be revealed tomorrow and it could be a letdown if we discover that Molly is the name of his pickup truck or his 101-year-old grandma. After all this foot-dragging, he wanders into ecstasy over Grandma Moses? No wonder why they stormed Bastille.
    “Coach, meet Molly”, her dentures popping out onto the rug while extending the hand of fellowship.
    “My pleasure.”
