His Podcast Defined Completely. A fractal.
Patrice Oneal was one of the best comedic minds of the last 30 years. He often appeared on Opie and Anthony, with his strident wisdom regarding the power dynamic in relationships. I’ve posted him before if you recall.
Hilarious Game Review
I was looking into buy a game for my daughter (Stardew Valley) and I discovered this streamer, RandomBystanderHere. He’s like a character from Community come to life.
From Walk Your Way Out
I’ve been listening to Bill Burr’s podcast for five years now (no shit? I had no idea. I thought you came up with your podcast persona by yourself, from whole cloth. Go fuck yourself), and this bit is one of my faves. It’s from his Netflix special, Walk Your Way Out.
Listen. If you can’t get your fat ass down here by 10:30, you’re getting a burger.Bill Burr
OMG I hate the newer WordPress. I am old. I have been using WordPress since 2007. I knew how to do everything I needed to, and I took a year long hiatus (I was looking for my keys) and when I come back, WordPress has changed so much, I don’t understand a goddamn thing anymore.
It’s disconcerting to realize that you’re ageing past the target audience for things. I don’t give a shit about any movies, most new music, tv shows, etc. I am curmudgeonly.
Anyway, Mitch Hedberg was a brilliant comedian, who died too soon. Comedians tend to be broken people and Mitch had demons which took him out, but not before he said some really funny shit.
I love his cadence, his delivery, and his voice. He’s a like a stoner Steven Wright. Enjoy this gig from a year before his death. Drugs. Unfortunate as he was a genius.
This is old news but I’m an old guy, and I saw this Rick and Morty court transcript reading when it first came out, so I’m still cool. Just about exactly two years ago a story consumed the Internet, about an exchange between a judge and an convict, which was just out of this world filthy, hilarious, and surreal.
This happened in Georgia and nothing else matters other than it’s a completely accurate reading of the actual goings on in that courtroom. Jesus Christ this country is fucked. Hilarious though.
If you would like to read the entire thing, go nuts. It’s just brilliantly magnificent in a truly Discordian sense. I declare both of these men, the judge and the prisoner, Discordian Popes.
Neil Young, Radiohead, & White People
Patrice O’Neal Explains Creep
I love Patrice O’Neal. He was one of the smartest, wisest, funniest, bravest, noblest comedians of the 21st Century, and his early death was a huge loss. In whi
This clip if from his appearance on the NoName Show, speaking of his (never made) Comedy Central show about White People. If you’re not familiar with Patrice O’Neal, he was a comedian in the same crowd as Bill Burr, Joe Rogan, Jim Norton, et al. The Boston Gen X crowd (of which I’m a member) that ascended with the rise of (non music video) MTV.
If you haven’t seen his epic Elephant In The Room, do so pronto. Funny stuff.
I didn’t know that Neil Young was such a beloved white figure in music. He’s beloved!
A Live Table Read Of Banned Family Guy Episode
Partial Terms Of Endearment
I remember when this banned Family Guy episode was all the buzz. Partial Terms of Endearment was to have been the final episode of season 8, for Family Guy. It’s also the last one shot/aired in standard definition, and the 4:3 (old school tv) aspect ratio.
The subject of this episode is (if you haven’t guessed by now) abortion. Back in 2010 when Ke$ha and Lady Gaga ruled the tundra, this episode was available …. in the woods… so you could download it…. in the woods… and get a rip from the UK broadcast (they aired it), and it was a fine episode. Some good jokes in there, mainly (imo) during the threesome part.
It’s crazy that Family Guy is almost 20 years old. I still watch it and sometimes it still makes me really laugh. That’s more than the Simpsons can say. Zombie Simpsons just sucks (one man’s opinion).
If you want to watch the episode itself, you can easily find it through google, or maybe even Netflix, or Hulu. This video is of a live table read, from 2010, featuring Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Mila Kunis, and a bunch of other people whose voices you’ll recognize. It’s a novel approach toward presenting a previously banned piece of work, and I like it. It also shows the honest skill and talent of the actors.
In any case it made me smile. I hope you enjoy the banned Family Guy episode, Partial Terms of Endearment, read aloud by the actors themselves (except for Seth Green). I am going to be adding posts about other things that interest me, so don’t be surprised to see more humor or esoteric posts in the future. I’ll still focus primarily on Jimmy Page, and Led Zeppelin, but I’m broadening the scope a little bit. Enjoy.
