Not much today. Unlike yesterday when there was oodles of not much! Very much, though, enjoying the new(er) Black Keys offering. It's good. Very good. Really good. As in, I like it very really much&stuff.
Ok.... I don't do reviews well. for that you need to go to The Caliph of Clevelandistan lennui-melodieux.blogspot.com..... if you can figure out what he is saying(which usually is more fun that KNOWING what he is saying. (if you know what I mean) Really.
Dangerously Funny: The Uncensored Story of "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour"
... not that it is a huge piece of literary accomplishment... but it details very well two of my heroes from my adolescent years ( I think I had a couple dozen of them.... years, not heroes) Tom&Dick Smothers and the show they had on CBS (when there were NO cable channel shit) The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.
Now looking back... it was all pretty tame stuff compared to what is on TV now (which is almost nothing.. or nothing gooooood.. or little that I watch) but with-out the Smothers Bros beating down censorship and pushing the edge of what is considered acceptable for TV viewing... there would have been no SNL or Cobert or a host of other people.
(in 1968 the Comedy Hour featured comedian Pat Paulsen running for President as a member of the STAG party (Straight Talking American Government Party.) A fore runner of the TEA Party (Tepid Enough Assholes) but really much more funny and whimsical. (Really)

ok. Gotz to run and return my ex-wife's hedge trimmer(before she finds out I borrowed it)
