On a more tangential note, this week's episode shares its title with this music:
I've been wondering what it is about Ragtime that's so inherently attractive to cartoonists. Well, I know Chris Ware liked it (and he might well still do) and Cat Garza (his Magic Inkwell link is over to the right of this page) said on his Facebook profile that he'd love to learn to play ragtime really well.
Not that I consider myself in the same league as these gentlemen, of course. It just occurs to me that some cartoonists have a particular set of preferences when it comes to favourite music; Chris Ware even plays the banjo.
