The Sunday Selector

Renaldo & the Loaf—“Songs For Swinging Larvae”

  • STOP PICKING ON THE WARMONGER: Poor little Norman “Bomb Iran” Podhoretz, Giuliani’s Senior Foreign Policy Advisor, had his ex-neighbors light a bag of dog poop on his doorstep. More here.
  • SUBHEMIANS: Our pal Rob from FREEblowjobs has a new, very funny piece up at Neil Pollack’s Offsprung.
  • FARTING WITH LUV: While you’re at Rob’s place, check out this bizarre music “video” he found.  And here’s an off-the-hook “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” mash-up we found that incorporates some of that video, along with footage of the amazing John Daker.
  • MY NAME IS JOHN DAKER: Speaking of John Daker, here’s a Daker remix that entertained us because we’re functionally retarded.
  • GORED: TBogg, who has been on fire lately, perfectly skewers the nutters’ obsession with demonizing Al Gore in two simple paragraphs.
  • DOWD AND OUT: Stephen Colbert does a guest editorial in Maureen Dowd’s spot while she follows John Edwards around looking for cum jokes to tumble out of his pockets.
  • PELOSI’S STUPIDITY: Yes, I’m a lefty but, first and foremost, I’m a realist.  For that reason, I agree with Condi Rice and John Boehner (yes, you read that right) regarding the Congressional resolution that’s pissing off Turkey.  If Turkey invades northern Iraq, the Democrats are going to pay dearly for this, regardless of how much the DOD would be way more responsible for looking the other way when it came to the PKK. What a fucking mess. More here (2nd link via Eschaton).
  • CHALK ONE UP FOR MY SILLY NEIGHBORHOOD: “A 6-year-old Park Slope girl is facing a $300 fine from the city for doing what city kids have been doing for decades: drawing a pretty picture with common sidewalk chalk.”

The Ledgendary Stardust Cowboy

The Ledgendary Stardust Cowboy

David Bowie on the Legendary Stardust Cowboy (about 2:00 into this interview with Jules Holland):

He made positively the most cacophonous, awful records that had ever been made in the late 60s. [...]  And [a Mercury records exec] gave me this stack of singles by this guy and I thought they were unbelievably atrocious, but in that wonderful way that you couldn’t stop listening to them they were so awful. [...] And there’s a bugle solo in the middle [of the song “Paralyzed”] that’s to die for (laughs).  And he won me over.  And his name Stardust became part of the Ziggy Stardust name. That’s where I got the name Ziggy Stardust.

Recently I finally got a chance to see the Ledge open up for Daniel Johnston in a show in NYC that was curated by Bowie and, man, he didn’t disappoint. As his band (which featured bassist Klaus Fluoride of the Dead Kennedys) played their opening instrumental, the then 59-year-old Ledge crawled on his belly all the way from the side of the stage to his microphone.  They then ripped into a manic version (is there any other?) of “Paralyzed,” a song they performed twice that evening, and prior to the next tune, the Ledge removed his heavy gun holster and hurled it at a dangerous velocity into the crowd. Later he flung paper plates adorned with his siganture into the crowd and, yes, I’m the proud owner of one of them. It was rockin’ dementia at its finest.

Below you’ll find a few of the better Ledge videos on YouTube and an MP3 download of the rare “Standing in a Trashcan (Thinking About You)” that will be begging for a spot on your next mix CD for as long as you allow it to remain on your hard drive. Enjoy.

I like the part where she blows

This is one of the most exquisitely painful things I’ve ever watched in my life.  Genius.

Lost Season 3 DVD Extras Leaked

Well, I’ve finally made it through all three seasons of Lost and, even though I find the flashback sequences tiresome at times, it is a damn fine series and I’m eagerly awaiting the start of the fourth season in February.  While I was poking around this weekend, I noticed that someone had recently uploaded leaked deleted scenes and “locations” extras to YouTube that must be from the upcoming Season 3 DVD (release date: 12/11/07). If you’re a fan of the show, you should probably jump on these ASAP because I’m sure it won’t be long before ABC gets these yanked.  Enjoy (and, obviously, insert a “spoiler alert” here for those of you who are still catching up or expect to).

Deleted Scenes:

“Doctor to the Rescue” (episode: “A Tale Of Two Cities”)

One of the most bizarre TV interviews ever: Tom Snyder talks with Charles Manson

SNYDER: “No, no, no, you can make yourself look crazy, Charles. I can’t make you look crazy and please believe me.”

MANSON: “Alright, I’ll believe you and I’ll put it in my left-hand pocket for later.”

Whenever talk turns to the greatest moments on television, I always cite Tom Snyder’s 1981 interview with Charles Manson on The Tomorrow Show. Everyone knows about Geraldo Rivera’s interview with Manson, but this one is the real deal.  Snyder approached the interview with the same sort of oily and/or naive honesty he was famous for (“Cmon’, Charles, off the space shuttle.”) and pulled chunks of creepiness out of Manson effortlessly, leaning in without displaying an iota of fear and casually smoking cigarettes through it all.  I’ve been looking for it online for years and now, finally, a YouTuber has uploaded the entire interview in seven parts. You can find them all embedded in order below.  Enjoy.

Part 1:

Go Ahead, Bomb New York

Funny as hell and, unfortunately, pretty believable.  Let it play through the commercial at the end for additional footage.

Fernwood 2 Night

Here are the additional clips I promised of Fernwood 2 Night (or Fernwood 2Night or Fernwood Tonight or that fake talk show where Martin Mull wore the leisure suit), the greatest (and funniest) TV show you probably never heard about. Unfortunately, the last time this show was rebroadcast was in ‘96 on cable’s TV Land and it’ll probably never make its way onto DVD, although you can find a few oily individuals pimping badly-transferred copies on eBay.  If you want some more background, you can find it here and here.

Happy Kyne and the Mirthmakers perform “Shake Your Booty” of the premiere episode, “Talk to a Jew” (original air date 7/14/77):

I (Heart) Angelina

We’ve all been hanging out with friends where the conversation turns to how weird or bitchy or scary or whatever Angelina Jolie is, but this video provides yet more proof that she is a better person than 99.9% of the people who talk shit about her.

Tom Waits on Fernwood 2 Night

Here’s a television classic featuring Tom Waits on the most grossly underrated sitcom of all time, Fernwood 2 Tonight.  The show was a spin-off of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman and starred Martin Mull and Fred Willard. The original air date of this clip was 8/1/1977 and it features Waits performing “The Piano Has Been Drinking.”

If you liked this, I’ll be running a series of Fernwood 2 Tonight videos this weekend.  Come on back.

Brother Theodore: “The only thing that keeps me alive is the hope of dying young.”

Back when David Letterman was on NBC, he used to go much further out on the crazy limb than he has during his CBS stint.  One of his regulars in the 80’s was the supremely odd and funny Brother Theodore, often introduced as a “philosopher, metaphysician and podiatrist.”  I made a point of catching Theodore’s live show in the Village whenever I was visiting NYC and even after I’d heard the same material over and over, I still laughed my ass off every time. His delivery was impeccable. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2001.

Hope you enjoy these clips I compiled off of YouTube. The first one gets a little out of sync near the middle, but it’s the only one that had Theodore performing solo.
