Is the daily show a secret cult?
Maybe it's just me but Loudon Wainwright III always has this psychedelic smile when I see him. Most recently he did the song, "Ramblin Blues" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and I was just thrilled with his performance. Too bad it's not up on YouTube because NBC's stupid website isn't playing that show at all (Sigourney Weaver is still awesome, btw!). They need to get whoever is doing Comedy Central's site 'cause it's the "Jam" compared to all others... even if Jon Stewart did make some douche remarks about Phil, his underware and blotter acid. *shakes fist in air, holding a sharpened pitchfork* I'm not finished with you Stewart! ; - )
I don't have cable, but I sure hope that comes out on DVD!
on sundance channel--
this week it is with richard thompson, nick lowe, allen touissant, and levon helm! and they play 'tennessee jed'! and ray lamontaigne is a guest too.
it's a neat program anyway (although i find elvis to be sort of a pain)- and this episode is really great. worth checking out.
John Stewart goes off on UCSC hiring someone to manage the Grateful Dead archive. He is incredulous that the person must have a Masters in Archiving(?!?)
He asks, what does this person do all day? Pick out pieces of blotter acid from Phil Lesh's underwear he wore on the Blues for Allah tour?
Can't believe nobody commented on this! (sorry, don't know how to embed the link but you can go to the website).
damn fine show produced by the BBC about long con grifters. the mother load is here:
I suggest you scroll all the way down the list and start with season 1 episode 1.
co-starring, the American actor; Robert Vaughn.
did a story on a guy in Portland who converted a small Datsun to run on electricity and his batteries give him 300 hp. He takes it down to the Motor Speedway for drag-racing on amatuer night and there's nobody who can beat him! It's so funny to watch this little electric Datsun blowing away Corvettes and Beemers and other big muscle cars in the quarter mile. They also showed an electric motorcycle built for drag racing that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2 seconds !
...has a show called "Secrets of the Dead".
