Speed Dating with Kristen Schaal

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

I had the pleasure of meeting comic Kristen Schaal last Valentines Day on the 13th Floor of the HBO Building in New York. She’s just as charming and delightful and brilliant and funny in person as she is in her screen roles. Kristen can currently be seen as “Mel” in the HBO hit series Flight [...]

Lincoln Footage Found!

Monday, February 9th, 2009 It is the bicentennial* of Abraham Lincoln’s birth on Feb. 12. An obscure photo series of Lincoln has recently been found and assembled in an attempt at reconstructing early film-like technology, to give us a stunning moment in time with the legendary president, who was apparently quite light on his feet. Much controversy has [...]

How to Irritate People

Monday, February 2nd, 2009 One of the internet’s hottest items of late is the Virgin Airlines Complaint Letter, which has been described as “the best complaint letter of all time.” (thanks Eric) I have to agree it’s the best I’ve ever seen. I’m always looking at more effective ways of complaining because of the increasing rudeness in society, [...]

The Scapegoat

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

I came across an old xerox from an unidentified textbook about psychology that I saved from way back and now wanted to share a bit I found about scapegoating. I think it’s behind alot of our problems in the ways we treat people and how we’re treated. Scapegoating Often one child in a family is [...]

The Mysterious Case of Smilin’ Bob

Monday, January 5th, 2009

As reported on this blog back in September 2007, the FDA, FTC and FCC have irresponsibly allowed nutritional supplement companies to flood the primetime TV airwaves with potentially harmful products. One of these, Enzyte, the male-enhancement product/brainchild of CEO Steve Warshak and Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals, recently went down hard. In August, Warshak was sentenced to [...]

Breaking News

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008 Here’s a fitting tribute to our outgoing Commander-in-Chief. Dubya reminds me of a cross between a bad Johnny Carson impersonator and the biblical Prophet Jonah. Let’s hope the waters calm down once he gets tossed off the boat in January.

Classic Jingles

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008 Rubber-faced comic Jack Gilford starred in a beloved series of Cracker Jack commercials in the 60s. I once heard a lecture in which Leonard Bernstein said that there’s only one music piece that is universally sung in all cultures: the na-na-na-na-na teasing chant of children. If you listen carefully, the title Cracker Jack jingle [...]

The Party Crasher

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

There are two major themes in The Party Crasher. Glass table injuries is one of them. The other is party etiquette. In the summer months, I went to a flea market and bought a used cassette by etiquette expert Letitia Baldridge. I listened to this primer on manners and in one part, she spoke about [...]

It’s Papu, the “Inexplicable Force of Nature.” By selecting his Vice President now, Jerry has scooped both Barack Obama (D) and John McCain®, who plan to reveal their running mates within a week.

The Original

Monday, August 18th, 2008

When I first stumbled upon the cartoon books of B. Kliban, it was a revelation. Kliban, who died in 1990,  revolutionized single-panel cartoons with his twisted, anti-social panels as well as his invention of the caption in third person. Gary Larson of “The Far Side” followed in his footsteps—some say too closely— as well as others, such as [...]

There was a wine and cheese social after the screening and I noticed that Chuck was sitting by himself at a table. I put my [...]
