A Boy and His Blog

Dear Gentle Reader, as you are well aware this blog is called "A Boy and His Blog".

As you may guess, that wasn't my exclusive point, because there's a lot more writing below.

The name for this blog came from the former name of my web site "A Boy and His Web Page".

I also liked the name "A Boy and His Blog" because it reminded me slightly of the phrase "a boy and his dog".

I was pleasantly surprised, when I created my blogger account, "A Boy and His Blog" wasn't already taken.

So, the other day, I did a Google search for "A Boy and His Blog", and to my shock, and possibly a little bit of horror, there is another blog by the same name.

Actually, there are several.

Then I decided to look up "a boy and his dog", to see if I could find a likely source for that phrase.

I found two movies and a short story.

The short story, by Harlan Ellison, was made into a to disturbing 1975 movie starring Don Johnson.

Oddly, I don't find the words " disturbing" "Don Johnson" and "movie" redundant at all.

I really like Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man.

I have it on DVD.

The Ellison short story may have had an influence in the creation of Mad Max, so it may even have some redeeming qualities.

The other movie won an an Academy Award in 1947 for Live Action Short Film.
