Took Down my Last Blog Post

Someone I was once friends with has been in the news. I took down the blog post about this person. We were friends, and it feels wrong to share information that I have from that friendship in a public forum at this time.

Racism Pays Big

Imus gets millions from CBS Radio in settlement. His argument was that he was hired to say horrible stupid things and firing for doing so is breach of contract.

Well, he has a strong argument and by settling out of court CBS is saying "Yeah, we kind of did hire him knowing he was a racist gas bag."

So maybe the venom thrown at Imus should be thrown at CBS instead. After all there's no shortage of racist asses out there but we don't spend much energy on most of them. What made this racist ass different is that CBS put him on the air, let him be a sports commentator and continued to let him hold this position after many equal if not more offensive utterings.

Of course they let him continue; His past uttering grabbed that lucrative "racist ass market" while going unnoticed by the also lucrative "we don't like racist asses market." It was the best of both worlds and CBS made plenty of money off of their angry white dude listeners.

"But isn't it free speech?" you ask. Of course it is. I'd fight to the death for Imus' right to say stupid things. And I'd refuse to give a cent to any company who hired him or profitted off of him. On the other hand, I can give some credence to the argument that his comments qualify as slander. He did call some young female athletes "hos" after all. You probably should have a right to play sports withough being accused of being sexualy permiscuous by some dumb ass with no talent on nationaly broadcast radio. No, my calling him a dumb ass with no talent is not slander. I have strong evidence to support my claim that Imus is a dumb ass with no talent.

So the no talent dumb ass who never deserved to make a dime to begin with is now richer than I can ever hope to be. Slandering talented young female athletes with racist slurs is quite profitable. Oh well, I'd rather be poor.

Muzak, I finally get it...

I was at the natural foods market today. They were playing Rufus Wainwright. It was a real dramatic tune. Rufus is belting it out, just pouring his heart and soul into the song in every way. And people are comparing pastas, selecting the reddest apple. It just seemed wrong. I found myself wishing they'd play something innocuous, and that's when it hit me, I Understand Muzak now! Though I think I'd still prefer silence.

Straight from the horse's mouth...

Show Tomorrow Night

Tomorrow night The Coexist? Comedy makes its debut here in Sacramento as we kick off four shows.
The 8pm shows are already sold out for both nights, but we still have tickets for 10pm both Friday and Saturday. See for details and such yeah.

Tomorrow morning the other comics and I will be on Good Morning Sacramento. I'm excited to see the tour getting off to such a great start. I can't wait to see how far we can take this one. Woohoo.

If you want to hear our radio interview from earlier this week you can listen here.

Egads, I'm chock full of nervous energy. I didn't think I'd be nervous going into this one, after all it's material that is well tested, but the shows getting so much attention and the turns the pressure up. Of course, when people are excited about the show and the theater is crowded it's easier to score. I know we'll do great.

I have SOOO much material. I'm excited about touring around and experimenting with different sets. It's a subject near and dear to my heart so it's been easy to do much writing. See ya there.
And I'll get up a high-lites you tube video with all the comics ASAP.

The Real Price of Spam

If a sexy lady with large breasts and a penchant for short skirts and geeky guys who think they're funny actually does want me to show her around my town I'll discard the message with the rest and that is a truly awful thing.
