Chuck Jones: Chuck Redux Blog
Craig Kausen is a guy who’s started a blog about his grandfather. Which is pretty cool considering his grandfather was Chuck Jones. He’s sharing numerous goodies, including my favorite thus far–a tale of Jones’ sixth birthday party…here’s a snippet of how he tells it:
The first surfacing of that part of my character that was later to show up in Daffy Duck occurred at the age of six. My sixth-birthday party, to be precise. I was immensely proud–it seems to me that all my life I have taken the most pride in things over which I have little or no control. Even though I had older sisters, it never occurred to me that anyone had ever become six years old before, and the splendid cake, candles bravely ablaze in salute to my maturity, was ample evidence that I had entered into manhood.
The story proceeds from there…here’s the rest of it. And it comes with a recipe for Tiramisu Toffee Torte as well. Now this is a blog we can get behind for numerous reasons. Found via Misce-Looney-ous.
