Was Babe Ruth Black?

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

Babe Ruth with his new wife Claire, 1930. Besides the conclusions that have already been made about this topic, I was astonished to recently learn in Leigh Montville’s biography on Ruth called “The Big Bam” that a statue of St. Martin de Porres, known as the Patron Saint of mixed-race people, stood on Babe’s nightstand [...]

Alien Invasion!

Monday, July 7th, 2008

Here’s proof that our hospitals are being overwhelmed by an invading armada of terminally sick illegal alien patients, who are taking advantage of our compassion, our facilities and ultimately our systemic incompetence. Each of these terminal patients is costing us a fortune. Hello?

George Carlin

Monday, June 30th, 2008

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eScDfYzMEEw&feature=related] I saw George Carlin perform in 1976 and again in 2007. As he got older, he got more and more relevant; he cut right to the bone, never caring who he tweaked, using his perceptive wit, verbal mastery and impeccable logic to skewer all the BS in society and tell us the truth in [...]

Plane Insane

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

It was a plane trip to remember. In March, I flew from Fort Lauderdale to Providence with three stops in between. (Hey, it was the cheapest flight I could find!) The last leg of the trip reminded me very much of Nightmare at 20,000 Feet. I was half-expecting to see a gremlin on the wing [...]

George Goetschel, a Chicago musican and improv artist, plays the lead character George. You can actually see and hear George in the interview clip in the episode. Key contributors to “The Casting Call” [...]

Hillary vs. Obama on SNL

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

The Hillary-Obama debates were recently lampooned on SNL . The biting satire targeted the appalling bias the press has bestowed upon Obama. Hillary and Barack, brilliantly portrayed by Amy Poehler and Fred Armisen, are both made to look like fools, and the press is even dumber. It’s the truth and it skewers everyone. It sends [...]

That’s Amore – Dean Martin

Friday, February 15th, 2008

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yoKEY6NQOs This was about the best Valentines tune I can come up with to go with last year’s “Beautiful Love”by Bill Evans. I also found Chet Baker’s “My Funny Valentine,” Shirley Horn’s “Here’s to Life” and Elvis’ “Teddy Bear.” Enjoy and Happy Valentines Day.

Tiny Tim

Tuesday, January 29th, 2008

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0yoKEY6NQOs I was watching a recent interview with Laugh-In great Dick Martin, and I flashed back to the time in the early 80s when I worked in the old Brill Building on Broadway. I bumped into Tiny Tim in the elevator. He was a large man. I felt like I came up to his elbow. [...]
