Beaten to the punchline: Germaine Greer on women and comedy - Stage - The Guardian
slavezombie

So here I am at the salt mines trying to get this entry done before 6 o'clock because I have some delusional idea that Ana Garcia reads all my entries just before she does the news. Heh-heh, there is a Santa Clause, Virginia. Hmm, did I just see Jean Reno's look-a-like?





the pleasure generated by a response to a gag is patterned on the male orgasm rather than the female.

Beaten to the punchline: Germaine Greer on women and comedy - Stage - The Guardian

I've been a real lazy dog these past couple of days… recovering from an aching back and soar muscles. A friend at work asked me if I wanted to have a kitten. Apparently, people must think I'm lonelier than an industry without a king.

You know what, I haven't said a single word about the late Michael Jackson. I really do feel sorry for that guy, but quite honestly, I never understood his songs, nor do I like them. I may have enjoyed them growing up, but I grew out of them pretty quickly.

How should a person cope over such a great loss for an industry that pretty much functions as the backbone of loud obnoxious music? Even as I speak, all I can do is reflect over the loss of such great radio stations as Indy 103.1 to supply side eco-friendly pop station. Everyone always has to pick on the head bangers, right. We lost KNAC back in the 70's, Pirate radio in the 80's (you know I'm guessing at these numbers). Now, only rich people can listen to metal. It's like the MTV days when music videos were beginning to flourish. Suddenly music videos are taken off of local network TV and placed into MTV.

I'm always one step behind. When I find that I have enough money to get Sirius radio, the phase of popularity in metal will be over. Next week: Kathy Griffin v. Lucille Ball

I didn't realize Americans read the "Guardian" (or "Grauniad" , as it's affectionately known because of its propensity for muddling up its letters .)
Do you like jazz , by any chance ?

I like the idea of "jazz club" more than I enjoy the music itself. When I find myself listening to soulful music at my leisure, I lean toward rhythm and blues from the 50's or 60's. I have yet to visit a night club featuring r&b, and I think I would enjoy myself a jazz club instead. I don't know what that might say about me and who I am, but I just feel that jazz is something to be shared while blues is something to drown one's sorrow in.

I agree with your distinction .

I think it's a sin that you're still such a voice crying in the wilderness ! Unless you actually prefer it that way , may I humbly suggest vastly simplifying the mode of commenting on your sagacious remarks ? I do rather feel that at present it resembles an intelligence tests for geniuses ...

Yep, go right ahead. Maybe you're correct in that I feel more comfortable this way. I say very little in real life and it isn't until I get to know people really well that I open up to them with little care over how what I say may effect them.
I don't want you to feel like I'm apologizing for anything. I'm not. There's nothing worse, however, than reading over a response I made at an earlier time and feeling yucky about it (did I say that?! OMG!) I can be casual in my responses, but sometimes it's hard to catch the choice of words I use that some people might consider obscene.

THE HOWL OF THE LONE WOLF
If I hadn't seen movies that glamorize the lone wolf way of life (Rebel without a cause; Fonzie from Happy Days) I probably would feel the need to seek out a pack to run with. As it is, the voice you hear in my entries is one of determination. I'm determined to make up for my sinful past by living a monk's life, and in achieving this ludicrous feat, I hope to become a published writer.

PLEASE ignore my oafish remark ! You've a vast number of friends - many of them mine too ! I could do with brain-replacement therapy ! Do you still see Donald O'Donavan in LA ?
