Title: When the Levee breaks
Post by: LingLing_THD on 21 Feb 2008, 12:29
  Minor point, but did anyone else notice that comic #1060, "When the Levee Breaks", marks the beginning of the day on which Faye will eventually sleep with Sven?  How's that for some comic title foreshadowing?
  Now all that's left is for someone to make a grueling, absurdly detailed plot prediction based on the lyrics for that song!  Hmmm... "Crying won't help you, praying won't do you no good"...that means that Faye will be unable to get over her depression after the one-night stand, and she'll have a crisis of faith that result in a emotional and religious schism from her Southern Baptist upbringing, resulting in a Kantian renunciation of humanity's connection to the spiritual.  And then she moves to Chicago.  Sorry, but she can't take you.
  God, I am just so freaking clever. :-)

I can't believe you didn't fit "going down" somewhere into that little prediction.

Well if we're going to go into foreshadowing like this... her shirt says 'This will destroy you' That can't possibly be a good sign.

Also note, you know, what is actually said in #1060 -- Dora to Faye: "I think it's good to push your boundaries sometimes."

Possibly, but it's a band name, so this may just be reading to much into it. There will be conflict and drama, but I don't think that Dora will declare him persona non grata or something. Marten wore a t-shirt reading "The Pipettes" but I don't think he going into science. (It was one of the few band references I caught.)

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, I guess.
