You can't throw a brick in this town without hitting one of 'em...
Yo, the Alternative Comedy Jam is now part of the 2 Dollar Show at my VERY FAVE TIKI BAR, Otto's Shrunken Head. 10pm, Wednesday October 6th. Watch comedians and buy me turquoise beverages bedecked with umbrellas and monkees and glowsticks.
PS -- Amidst the ever-changing tide of the NY bar scene, some of you may remember Otto's when it was called Barmacy and was themed like an old-fashioned apothecary. Barmacy was neat and shit, but they totally didn't have glowing blue bevvies.
Also, for the record, I would quite like to live in a tiki bar. With a real rock waterfall. And torches. And lava.
Speaking of, the CNN coverage of the Mt. Saint Helens fart was hi-laaarious. It was like the CNN reporter was begging the park ranger for some little juicy nugget of atrocity with which to terrify the amerikan viewing public.
CNN person: "Are you in any danger, being near the volcano?"
Park Ranger: "No, everything's pretty quiet right now. There's just a tiny cloud of ash."
CNN person: "But could you be in danger? Could something bad happen?"
Park Ranger: "Um, no, everything's fine."
This went on for quite a few more rounds.
I half-expected to hear
CNN Person: "If a terrorist were to drop a weapon of mass destruction into the volcano, then would we be in trouble?"
Like the end of "Armageddon" but in reverse.
Put your nuke down, flip it, and reverse it.
