Married to the Sea (band from Liverpool, England)[edit]

Married to the Sea are a band that formed after Liverpool band Milk split-up in 2005. I was just doing a search for "Married to the Sea" the band and this article about "Married to the Sea" the comic came up, and I was just wondering whether or not there should be any reference to the band, or indeed a seperate article concerning "Married to the Sea" the band. Any advice would be appreciated, further reference can be found at http://www.moreweightrecords.com and http://www.myspace.com/marriedtothesealion. Regards Gregmacoy 21:53, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

If you are so inclined, create an article called Married to the Sea (band) and add a template at the top of this article offering to direct visitors there. If this is going to be a common thing, maybe we should have a disambiguation page instead. White 720 01:53, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Lithograph source[edit]

Does anybody know where they get thier lithographs? It would be very interesting information for the article.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Jwink3101 (talkcontribs) 03:43, 30 May 2007

According to the podcast I listened to, it comes from 1800s books and newspapers. He (one of the 3 people who works as "Drew") didn't specify the newspaper but from what I gather it was old Time, Harper's Weekly, London Times, and other similar publications from around the same time period. I'm not sure where the newer material comes from but probably similar, newspapers, or mags, etc. Maximumenjoyment (talk) 19:49, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

See Also Relevant?[edit]

Under "See Also" links to Lee J. Ames & Contour drawing were added. Any particular reason? Since the Married to the Sea strip does not include any original drawing, I don't see how these links are relevant. Please explain. Keithh (talk) 13:51, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

A recent comic mentions Ames and Countour Drawing technique. I'm not sure it is not relevant enough to keep without an explanation. http://www.marriedtothesea.com/052408/contour-drawing.gif --KJRehberg (talk) 19:14, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Well, my $0.02 is that it doesn't look like enough as you say to keep without explanation. But since I really don't feel that strongly either way, I'll leave it up to you. Keithh (talk) 21:40, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Okay, then why did you bother? Thanks for the discussion, anyway. --KJRehberg (talk) 00:41, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Natalie Dee Merge[edit]

I do not believe that a merge is acceptable. Married to the Sea and NatalieDee are quite obviously not the same thing or even related. The only way they are remotely connected is that their creators happen to be married. Take a look at this graph of the Unique hits to Married to the Sea and NatalieDee. Compare.com Site Analytics You can see that NatalieDee is clearly more popular. And to prove notability here she is compared to Diesel Sweeties and Ctrl Alt Del - Site Analytics - Webcomics which have Wikipedia articles and NatalieDee beats them hands down based on unique traffic and therefore NatalieDee is worthy of its own article. I have also added sources to NatalieDee from Entertainment Weekly and The Daily Gamecock as proof that the article is notable. Spastic on elastic (talk) 12:37, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I totally agree. I think it's kinda sexist that Toothpaste gets its own article but Natalie Dee doesn't...? 216.231.36.191 (talk) 00:46, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Running fan count[edit]

It is noted that Natalie Dee has a popular Facebook site. Do we really need to keep a running count of exactly how many fans there are at any given time? "This page has over 2500 fans." How about we kill this line? Doesn't seem appropriate in an encyclopedic entry.Keithh (talk) 15:07, 21 September 2009 (UTC)


redirect from dog traders[edit]

the page dog traders redirects here, dog traders is a band wille apparently closely associated with the comic it is still a separate entity --Kateweb (talk) 11:58, 26 July 2010 (UTC)


identity[edit]

The article is written to indicate that "Drew Fairweather" and "Natalie Dee" are these peoples' legitimate names... this is not likely to be the case and should be clarified. As far as I know their actual identities are generally unknown. 74.140.254.131 (talk) 18:01, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

I added info on the

Possible tall tales from Drew[edit]

Since Drew is a well-known troll known to tell ridiculous tales and say outlandish things (go look at his twitter if you don't believe me), I believe some of the content is dubious in the paragraph about Drew, especially the stuff sourced from podcasts. I do not think he can be considered a reliable source about himself, and in any case, WP:THIRDPARTY applies (him saying things about himself is first-party, technically). --70.185.221.158 (talk) 19:14, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
