A New Carlough Bros. Live! This Sunday!

Well, almost new, anyway. I've actually performed it once before, but it was at a theater fundraiser that was forty bucks to get in, so unless you really love supporting the theatrical arts, you probably haven't seen it. Anyway, it's this Sunday at Bowery Poetry Club, courtesy of First Sundays. You can read about it and everything else at the show at First Sundays' site. And it'll be awesome and you should come.

Have you ever thought of a name for a band and then found out a band with that name already existed?

So have I.

More than once.

More My Best Friend

This one includes what will probably go down as the worst Lenny Bruce impression in web video history.

Strawberry Shortcake redux

In 2006, I wrote a post about how a New York Times article was inaccurate and figured it was going to be the last time I was going to be able to do it. And it basically was. But...

Check out this article about revamping Strawberry Shortcake for the 21st century, or if you don't feel like it, just look at the image from it:

Now look at the official Strawberry Shortcake website.

Strawberry Shortcake never looked like the Times' version. I'm just sayin. Diogenes Club 2, Times 0. Also, the article says that she's made $2.5 billion since 2003, how the hell did that happen?

And as long as I'm talking about 21st century revamps, Hasbro is modernizing Clue to make it more relevant to kids today, which I find odd, because it wasn't like old timey colonels with monocles and grand dame widows were popular when we were kids and we still put up with Clue.
