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.

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