Dreams Are A Life Force

December 1, 2009

Constance: You sound like my friend Ed.  Now Ed was an actor, and he tried and tried; and never got that magic role.  He worked nights at a copy store and lived in a terrible apartment filled with roaches, but he never gave up.  And then on his 60th birhtday, he said, “That’s it.  I quit.  I can’t do this anymore.”  Guess what happened a week later.

Henry: He got discovered?

Constance: He died.  Dreams are a life force.

“ But to even things out, here is all my weird secret stuff. I have been sexually rejected by not one, but two guys who later went onto Clown College. I get super nervous whenever I hear a vacuum cleaner because when I was a kid, my mom would turn on the vacuum to drown out the sound of her and my dad fighting. Which is why I rarely vacuum my apartment, like, never. I have had three doughnuts so far today. Once in college, I pooped my pants a little bit at a Country Steaks all you can eat buffet and I didn’t leave until I finished my last plate of shrimp. A couple of months ago, I went on a date with my cousin. Wow…I am a mess. There is an 80% chance that in the next election I will tell all my friends I am voting for Barack Obama but I will secretly vote for John McCain. Here’s one, when I was a kid, I used to put on my fanciest nightgown and then I would mix orange soda and cream soda in a champagne glass and I would sit in the dark and watch The Love Boat. Consequently I have some weird sexual fantasy stuff about Gopher from The Love Boat. And I lied. I have had five doughnuts today. „

Better Off Ted

April 25, 2009


dd-goodmanontv18_0499915463I usually don’t care for television shows. I was so distanced from sitcoms for so long on tour, that when I got back into trying to watch TV, there was shows like Arrested Development and The Office, which took me a while to understand the style of. 

(I still don’t get all the hoopla about The Office) 


I DO however like 30 Rock, and enjoyed Andy Richter Controls the Universe. Better Off Ted reminds me of both of these shows a little. Its crisp and witty. Filled with visual punch lines and cynicaly upbeat characters.

I’m really hoping that this show is a sucessful comedy for ABC, since they tend to do pretty poorly with those…
