Welcome to the first post of the Official Sam & Max blog. I'm posting this cryptic image because it was the placeholder for the Sam & Max website I had planned to do years ago. During an unfortunate glitch with the domain holding entity, samandmax.com was poached by unscrupulous forces who are using it to sell God knows what, and my dream of an official site went into cryogenic stasis.
Ah, what the hell! Blogs are easier to maintain (especially for a slow-witted troglodyte like myself) anyway. I've somehow managed to maintain my other blog, Spudvision, at a fairly consistent pace for quite awhile now, and it seemed like it was high time to kick a Sam & Max blog into gear.
In my mind this photo shows the very earliest inadvertent roots of Sam & Max. This photo was sent to me by a fan, copied out of a U.K. travel guide. It's a real corbel carved for an ancient church and if it wasn't for the little dangly arms on the bunny, I might be more inclined to think it an odd coincidence. As it is I can only call it destiny. Some precognitive image-making on the part of a work-for-hire, bog person, sub-minimum wage, stone-carving drone.
Something spoke to him, he realized it in sculpture, was most likely fired or executed shortly thereafter, and then it took only 800 years for the idea to take root and flourish.
All I can say is "thank you Mr. stone-carving bog drone!"
