Doin’ comics about my heroes. Last week was Frank Black Francis. Here’s a nuther:
It’s hard to fit everything I like about these guys in a single comic. They take freakin’ forever to draw as it is. Here are some links.
This is the best talk-show appearance in the history of man, and I’m not exaggerating (watch till the end):
Norm did the roast-thingee of Bob Saget. One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen in my life.
Unfortunately, most people don’t really seem to understand satire, including the deceptively named channel Comedy Central, who cut his brilliant performance from their actual show.
Norm explained later in an interview: “There was nothing outrageous in that at all. It was the opposite of outrageous, but a lot of people didn’t get it, even though it was a simple grade- two arithmetic concept. People thought I was mentally ill or something. It just occurred to me, because I didn’t really want to do it and Bob kept asking me to do it. And the producer told me it should be shocking. I watched a tape of it and saw everything on it was vulgar and filthy, so I thought the only shocking thing to do was the antithesis of that. So it’s pretty simple.”

Geez, there’s lots. The hours I’ve wasted away watching Norm MacDonald interviews. Now I’m doing it again looking for good videos….ENOUGH!! Back to work!!!! Those songs ain’t gonna write themselves, now are they??? Although they probably will in the not-too-distant future. Damn Kurzweil.
