The Dork Forest

Dork on Dork Dialog with Jackie Kashian. I am interested in whatever dorky thing you want to talk about.

    a fine gentleman named Zach worked the board. I will get his credit up when I learn his whole name. and for the next live ep. Patrick did the audio massage and leveling like usual for the show. I usually record in my house and he does that. in this, case, zach recorded and patrick massaged ;)

    Jonathan Winters was doing a fair amount of work on Steve Allen and Jack Paar's shows even before IT'S A MAD...WORLD, so that interview would have to date from pretty early in the '60s, at latest, for the interviewer to be pooh-poohing the notion of Winters as a Big Deal in comedy...I should look up when his first LP came out.

    Sadly, the soundfile links on the WOODY ALLEN ON COMEDY page seem to be dead, or maybe just when I tried them. Morgan Freeman has been pulling a Woody Allen of late, as Jimmy Dore discovered belatedly a few weeks back, though NPR folks were discussing it in my earshot a year or so back. I wonder if Freeman has gained some freedom to date his granddaughter equivalent by the fact that Allen (married? and) did so with his daughter equivalent starting a decade or two back...

    Sorry I missed this, but at least we have the documentation here! Thanks.

    Now, let's try this:
    APES AND MONKEYS ARE TWO DIFFERENT FAMILIES OF PRIMATE! FNORD! UNSUB! Nah, let's not...too chimpy (not to say babboony). But English is one of the few languages that in common, non-scientific parlance will actually make the distinction...we're all "monos" in Spanish, for example.

    My friend Alice, whom you might recall meeting (in the improbable event you recall the only time we've been face to face, as well, after a show at Comix) found a key in the intentional obfuscation of MULHOLLAND DRIVE...you can see a narrative throughline if

    ***spoilers***
    you note that the director's life changes so vastly for the better, even if Naomi Watts's character does vastly for the worse (collateral damage?), after he Does What He Was Told To Do (and, as Maria Bamford notes, starts redesigning his house in shades of gray) at about the film's midpoint (when Watts and Harring's characters have their Fun with the Box...yes, the arguable relevance to their earlier fun is intentional, since we are all indeed permanent 15 to some extent...and I'm not certain the pun isn't Lynch's--that box fun doesn't lead indirectly to their downfall).
