American Splendor

Last night I watched "American Splendor". This is a film about Harvey Pekar who wrote a famous comic strip about his life. He was working a dead end job and was living alone, but managed to create this cartoon that made him famous. He was buddies with Crumb, who did the drawings for his first comics. Some parts of his life looked depressingly similar to mine. When he met his third wife, almost the first thing he set to her was that he had had a vasectomy done. I would have never said this when meeting someone, but later on it started to bother his wife. The guy was pretty insightful, as well as being a bit weird.
