Shaenon: Early on, Jeffrey commented that “Pretty in Pink” by the Psychedelic Furs was a good theme song for Tip, so I doodled this sketch of Tip in an outfit inspired by Molly Ringwald’s clothing in the movie. I draw this pose way too much, though. It’s a bad habit.

Channing: I was only dimly aware — if that, even — of the John Hughes film of the same name when I heard the track on the radio during the initial scripting process. The lyrics don’t fit terribly well, and the song’s association with that questionable movie (my comments on which would run too long to fit comfortably here) only further alienates it, but there’s something about the sound that really plucked a chord. A better actual theme song for Tip is Garbage’s “Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go!)” from the BeautifulGarbage LP, which is surprising, because I was really listening to Garbage for Unity’s sake, initially.
