Goodenough Gismo

  • Gismo39
    This is the classic children's book, Goodenough Gismo, by Richmond I. Kelsey, published in 1948. Nearly unavailable in libraries and the collector's market, it is posted here with love as an "orphan work" so that it may be seen and appreciated -- and perhaps even republished, as it deserves to be. After you read this book, it won't surprise you to learn that Richmond Irwin Kelsey (1905-1987) was an accomplished artist, or that as Dick Kelsey, he was one of the great Disney art directors, breaking your heart with "Pinocchio," "Dumbo," and "Bambi."

feh. The man's spending too much time thinking about it. Empty?



Well, that's what philosophers do, isn't it . . . "mental masturbation"?

Wow, I haven't heard "Feh" since my maternal grandmother died . . .




LOL, lurnt it from Instapundit.


Jeez -- I wonder where he learned it.


I'd like to comment, but my husband says, "NO!!" Since I love him so much and abide by the vows and such of marriage, I'll consent. BUT... {;^P... maybe another time! Well, I guess I can say he agrees w/ *Feh!*


It's almost a given that men are going to hate this work. Morioka may be gazing into an abyss that many men have glimpsed and gotten the hell away from. They are going to want to shoot the messenger. I don't like what Morioka reveals, and I don't know (nor does he) whether it applies to more than a small subset of men. But I admire his courage in confronting and confessing it. I wonder if his book ends with any thoughts about integrating male sexuality -- which can be an anarchic, desolating force for sure -- into male humanity. It's not something women can ever really understand, even after living with you guys for a lifetime.


Hey Karen - that's what pseudonyms are for ;)
