Yeah - that Marcia Wallace - from Bob Newhart and Edna Krabappel on The Simpsons and the wacky maid on That's My Bush!  - so cool. So I dork out on her a bit until we both get excited about Mr. Gary Shapiro - comic, storyteller, musician and all around hard-working good guy.


We discuss the nature of trying that edge of comedy and how it doesn't always work - so beware, bad words are said. Know that they were attempts at comedy and sometimes, to get to art, you go through obnoxious, not funny things. You'll get over it.


Wallis Simpson (the reason King Edward VIII abdicated the British throne in the 1930's) came up because we were going to discuss The King's Speech - which Marcia really liked but we didn't get into it.

Leon Russell (well, I looked him up and I know NOW - but this link is Wiki, I'll get a second source for my "paper") did "A Song For You" and he's incredible. I think I'll buy an album. See? I can be taught.

Deximil - "greenies" and the link is NO ONE I KNOW but an incredible dialog about taking this drug. Good grief.

Ghost Lake - Trailer. heh... found it.

Don't Look Back, We're Not Going That Way - autobiography by Marcia Wallace.

The Green Room with Paul Provenza - the show on Showtime that Gary is on and here is the book that his monthly show is based on: Satiristas: Comedians, Contrarians, Raconteurs & Vulgarians - follow him on twitter to get dates when he's doing sets. Because he's great. 

Vampire Mob - Marcia Wallace plays the mother-in-law in this Soprano/Vampire spoof web series. Watch it! 

Justin Bieber - Baby - the chorus is quite painful.


Have a great week folks - more dorkdom coming,


xo, Jackie
