Yeah - that Marcia Wallace - from Bob Newhart and Edna Krabappel on The Simpsons and the wacky maid on That's My Bush!  - so cool. So I dork out on her a bit until we both get excited about Mr. Gary Shapiro - comic, storyteller, musician and all around hard-working good guy.

 

We discuss the nature of trying that edge of comedy and how it doesn't always work - so beware, bad words are said. Know that they were attempts at comedy and sometimes, to get to art, you go through obnoxious, not funny things. You'll get over it.

 

NOTES:
Wallis Simpson (the reason King Edward VIII abdicated the British throne in the 1930's) came up because we were going to discuss The King's Speech - which Marcia really liked but we didn't get into it.

Leon Russell (well, I looked him up and I know NOW - but this link is Wiki, I'll get a second source for my "paper") did "A Song For You" and he's incredible. I think I'll buy an album. See? I can be taught.

Deximil - "greenies" and the link is NO ONE I KNOW but an incredible dialog about taking this drug. Good grief.

Ghost Lake - Trailer. heh... found it.

Don't Look Back, We're Not Going That Way - autobiography by Marcia Wallace.

The Green Room with Paul Provenza - the show on Showtime that Gary is on and here is the book that his monthly show is based on: Satiristas: Comedians, Contrarians, Raconteurs & Vulgarians - follow him on twitter to get dates when he's doing sets. Because he's great. 

Vampire Mob - Marcia Wallace plays the mother-in-law in this Soprano/Vampire spoof web series. Watch it! 

Justin Bieber - Baby - the chorus is quite painful.

 

Have a great week folks - more dorkdom coming,

 

xo, Jackie

    Good vibe in this show.

    I think I like The Dork Forest best with one guest of either sex.

    Good job.

    Or, of course, It is never going to be Leo Sayer..wait, no, that's not quite right either...

    A quick comment, among the others I might hope to make with a little more time to do so, in response to this fine episode (THE BOB NEWHART SHOW being the best sitcom of the '70s in significant part because of Marcia Wallace, and Gary Shapiro being great and adept fun on THE GREEN ROOM)--if I'm going to seek out a band for Ironic Fandom from among '70s soft-rockers...It isn't ever going to be Bread, Jackie...

    (Yes, I'm the kind of idiot who has talked himself out of getting laid at least once by being a little too honest about Bread...but, hey, I'll listen to Carole King or even Seals and Crofts without complaint...and I never stopped liking Abba OK, or, I guess, ABBA actually...)
