Comedy Central And Me

Anyone notice the new Comedy Central logo?

The old logo, which I believe Comedy Central used for ten years, was created by Santiago Cohen, who also did the covers and illustrations for my books My Life Among the Aliens and Club Earth.

I didn't notice it, but now that I see it, I don't like it. Seems boring, but maybe it's highbrow comedy.

I think the fact that you didn't notice it is significant. Does an organization want people to not notice its logo?

Its seems kind of techie to me, while the old one was whimsical. The old one seemed to be giving a message of comedy being something encompassing the planet. The new one seems to say, "We're a corporation, with media stuff."

Of course, that all may just be what I'm hearing, vs. what they're saying.
