Conceived above a saloon, delivered into this world by a masked man identified by his heavily sedated mother as Captain Video, raised by a kindly West Virginian woman, a mild-mannered former reporter with modest delusions of grandeur and no tolerance of idiots and the intellectually dishonest.

Lost in translation

 

I dunno. The broadcast television redub kinda ruins it.

See ya, Soupy...

The ineffable Soupy Sales passed away last night. The 83-year-old entertainer's 50s and 60s programs were ostensibly kiddie shows, but just listen to the crew in this clip. It also explains why people my age have an affinity for Craig Ferguson.

Goodbye, Vic Mizzy and Dr. No

 

Composer Vic Mizzy, who wrote the distinctive, memorable theme songs for the classic 1960s absurdist comedies The Addams Family and Green Acres, died last Saturday.

 

 

 

Joseph Wiseman, the first Dr. No and the prototype for Dr. Evil.

Looking out from my office window: Fayette City, the Monongahela River, and Allenport.

New and completely different; old and completely different....

On those evenings I have difficulty sleeping, I tune in Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show, which immediately follows Letterman. If Lewis Black were Scottish, on the proper dosage of antidepressants, and a bit too much Adderall, he'd be Ferguson.

Aside from his hysterical stream of consciousness monologues, from time to time he puts together marvelous absurdist musical openings:

 

 

And speaking of absurdist humor, the grand masters- Monty Python- are featured in a new documentary on cable network IFC for the next six nights at 9 pm. IFC's also running the classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Life of Brian, as well as all four seasons of Monty Python's Flying Circus.

So there.  
The kgb@kgb.com e-mail address is now something other than kgb@kgb.com saga.
kgbreport.com used to be kgb.com until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up kgb.com and adopting kgbreport.com created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the kgb.com domain name in 1993, and had since that time used kgb@kgb.com as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that kgb@kgb.com was no longer kgb@kgb.com but rather kgbarkes@gmail.com which is longer than kgb@kgb.com and more letters to type than kgb@kgb.com and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than kgb@kgb.com but actually just as functional as kgb@kgb.com? I sent e-mails from the kgb@kgb.com address to just about everybody I knew who had used kgb@kgb.com in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the kgb@kgb.com change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which kgb@kgb.com was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for kgb@kgb.com would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that kgb@kgb.com no longer is the kgb@kgb.com they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. kgb@kgb.com. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
