There's no structured narrative. No neat story-line to explain.
Anybody want to hear some in-your-face comedy from a shock-jock type crazy man, then DO NOT go to the Todd Barry show at the Improv this week. This laid-back “medium energy” comic is funny as 8 muggs but he is not gonna jump around like a clown for your amusement. If you wanna hear a self professed “blogger friendly” comedian who rips on me for loving the new Wilco album, then Todd Barry is your guy.
A bunch of donkies(eys) will be at the Thursday night show if anybody is down.
Speaking of comedians, with Ron and Fez off to XM radio, WJFK is auditioning a bunch of people for the night-slot. This week we are getting Colin Quinn and Nick Dipaolo, and they have already stated that they want to stay in DC at that spot. Even though Colin Quinn continuously trips over his own words and his monologues on Tough Crowd were sometimes cringe-inducing as he stumbled and bumbled, these are a couple of funny-ass dudes and I hope they are here to stay. Plus could you ever have enough veterans of remote control around? I think not. Where is Kari Whurer?
Krazy Katrina Link of the day:
The wonderful citizen who yelled “Go Fuck Yourself Mr. Cheney,” twice, to Cheney’s face, on national TV, has started his own website. Hurricane Katrina Sucked Dot Com. He is an emergency room doctor who had his home ravaged in the hurricane.
You can see his comments to “Mr. Cheney” here and here .
If you are thinking that it was innapropriate to use those words in front of the vice-president, I direct you do Cheney’s comments to Senator Leahy.
According to the Washington Post, the exchange ended when Cheney offered some crass advice: "Go fuck yourself." The Washington Times put it this way: "Cheney...responded with a barnyard epithet, urging Mr. Leahy to perform an anatomical sexual impossibility."
Google has released a beta version of its blog search
Obviously it still needs some work, because a search for “Donkies” does not reveal the Donkies family of blogs as the top results. No love for the first place Donkies football team, first place Donkies kickball team, first place Donkies fantasy football team, or second place Donkies soccer team. Between all of those teams there are only 2 losses.
The definitive guide to summer 2005 weddings. I only have about 4 more to hit up this summer.
"Oh What a Night, Late December 1963: Frankie Valley and the Four Seasons.
This is by far the biggest wedding song mystery to me. How did this stupid, not particularly danceable song about a teenager losing his virginity in the winter work it’s way into the rotation of nearly every wedding I have ever attended? Baffling."
