Through Wednesday evening, the Large Hearted Boy blog is holding a contest. You can win The Complete Monty Pythons Flying Circus: Collectors Edition Megaset, and all you have to do is to name your favorite TV comedy. 320 comments in, I was the very first person to name the Ernie Kovacs show. That don’t seem right. Depending on the day, I might also cite The State (also unmentioned in all those comments), which I stand by as being the single best sketch comedy show, better that Python, Kids in the Hall or anything.
You have a little over 48 hours from when I’m posting this. If you are at all interested, step on up and comment.
I am subscribed to the Large Hearted Boy music and literature blog. Today was a post about the PDX Pop Now festival. The thing that jumps out about that is that the band Jonny X and the Groadies are friends of mine. I’ve known Jonny for 10 years and on the last national tour they did we had a house full of Groadies in Atlanta. Check out their music and if you are in PDX, go see them. You need some midi metal mayhem in your life. I’d be seeing them if I could.
Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for April 24, 2007.
I play a song from Dead Heart Bloom and give a shoutout to the Large Hearted Boy blog; I talk about Dan Conover’s post about newspapers entitled “What if the Business Plan was Love?”; I discuss sentimentality and the equilibrium of love, getting more in by letting more out; May will be interview month on EGC; I give an example from Paul Melancon why I like the interview shows; I suggest that the outrage directed towards Don Imus would better be placed against the people who prevent black people from voting; by request I memorialize the late Siderunners and then call it quits.
