This Charming Charlie.


As of this morning, I think I need to add a new question to my FAQ: “Have you seen this Smiths/Peanuts tumblr?” I’ve received close to 40 emails (!!!) and about a dozen tweets since yesterday about it, leading me to believe that I have indeed accomplished my primary mission in life, which of course is to be someone who comes to mind when subjects involving Morrissey and/or Charlie Brown arise. They’re two of my most favorite guys, forever and always.

The answer, obviously, is YES, I have seen it — I first saw it on the NPR Music blog, courtesy of Jen’s husband. Thanks, Jim! Never before has so much self-awareness and sensitivity been presented in such a heartwarming way. I think the Peppermint Patty & Marcie ones are my favorites. Sheila take a bow, indeed!

For the three remaining people on the planet have not yet seen this brilliant combination of Peanuts comic strips and Smiths lyrics, I hope you enjoy This Charming Charlie as much as I do. Lauren LoPrete is obviously a genius, and I’m truly sorry that I’m not the one who thought to do this. Thank you for making it happen, Lauren! You really made my day/week/life.

And also: Thank you, Charles Schulz. Thank you, Morrissey.

    I love how you always remember to acknowledge the creator Anna. Something I could try to remember myself when I share stuff online.

    Count me as another utter stranger who immediately thought of you when I saw this online yesterday. Ah, modern life.

    Lauren is a genus. And she designed my blog. Good thing I found her before she becomes (more) famous!

    So beyond brilliant, couldn’t love it more!

    Two of my favorite things combined — I’m in love!!

    My only quibble is that I totally see the A Rush and a Push line above being something Peppermint Patty would say to Chuck. 🙂
