comedy that just writes itself

To George W Bush,

Comedians everywhere hope you stay in the public eye for years to come… the rest of us 78% who don’t approve of the job you’ve done hope you just go away.

Good riddance, #43.  Don’t let the shoe hit you on the way out

Here’s hoping #44 is better.  Quite frankly, it’d be hard for anyone to be worse than you as far as public policy goes, Mr Bush.

Buh-bye!

Brilliant stuff… check out a new video of Ron Howard (as Opie with Andy Griffith & Richie with Henry Winkler) over on my friend J.Marie’s blog:

I’d post it here, but WordPress(.com) doesn’t like many of the standard video embedding links.

Sarah Silverman urges you in her usual offensive way… don’t be a douche nozzle

Thanks for the PSA, Sarah.

Only 3 more weeks until D-Day…

Monty’s Rockcast / Palin Debate Flowchart & Duck Hunt / Holy Fuck on CBC Radio Q

4th Oct 08 (Sat) 1 comment

Well, three unrelated topics… Monty Colvin’s podcast, the VP debate, and Holy Fuck on CBC Radio Q…

Monty Colvin, bassist/ songwriter/ backing singer from Galactic Cowboys and multi-instrumentalist/ lead vocals/ songwriter from Crunchy, has a podcast.  If you’re a fan of Galactic Cowboys (GC), King’s X, or guys who say “um” and “stuff” a lot… check it out.  As a big GC fan, episode #2 was really good… great insights to the making of the self-titled debut.  He’s only up to episode #3, but I look forward to more Rockcasts.  Keep it up, Monty!

Speaking of podcasts (ok, I guess they were related topics), I just got through the 10/2/08 Vice Presidential Debate on my iPod (I wasn’t around to watch the debate) between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin.

Well, all I can say it… “you betcha” is starting to sound like a bad cartoon catch phrase, Sarah.

So, Dick Cheney‘s only bad decision was shooting his friend in the face?  That’s what she said. Really, Sarah Palin?

Really?

No… really?

Sigh… I just hope this doesn’t turn out poorly… for us all… not just “Joe Sixpack and Hockey Moms.”

OK, back to something that cheers me up… because as much as I like to hear my politicians mispronounce “nuclear” (it’s not new-cue-lar), I like hearing post-rock, organic-electronic band Holy Fuck MUCH MORE… they play “Lovely Allen” and “Royal Gregory” on Canada’s CBC Radio Q hosted by Jian Ghomeshi.

The CBC Radio Q podcast is located HERE (the 10/3/08 show is one with Holy Fuck playing live — they’ve been interviewed on it before, but as far as I know, not playing live).

Bleh… sorry for my run-on, parenthetical sentence (as I like to do)… the podcast link is HERE (iTunes link) or HERE (CBC web mp3-link).

The 2008 Presidential Debate(s) are (will be) available for download as a CBS podcast HERE (via iTunes).  For non-iTunes people… well, I’m sure it’s out there elsewhere.
