Brandon Gardner joins me to watch Club Paradise and discuss how a comedy with great gags and characters can go wrong when it is too focused on a heavy plot.

Pull the Trigger and get tickets for Chekhov’s Gun Night at UCB Sunset in Los Angeles tomorrow night August 25th 10:30pm - https://sunset.ucbtheatre.com/performance/56444

In celebration of the man and his foreshadowing ways, Chekhov’s Gun Night is an evening of suspenseful scenes and loaded improv. Each performing team will be given a loaded cap gun to be used at their discretion. Build suspense by leaving the unused gun center stage until the final moments, or use it early on in order to propel a monoscene forward but every team must use Chekhov’s Gun.

featuring:
Toledo Rep - Suzi Barrett, Eugene Cordero, Rebecca Drysdale, Tricia McAlpin, Johnny Meeks, Billy Merritt, Timm Sharp, Joel Spence

The Goblin Boys - Katie Plattner, Rachel Forman, Dana Cox, Paige Klone

Penguins on the Playground - Jen Krueger and Mark David Christenson

RIP George A. Romero - THANK YOU for sparking the imaginations of so many creators and many more to come. True example of staying true to independent roots yet encouraged and celebrated those who played with your timeless creation, ZOMBIES! [even if you thought Walking Dead and World War Z ruined Without you I wouldn’t have Shaun of the Dead and my oldest brother wouldn’t have such a demented sense of humor. It all started with “the dead” series! Also, everyone should watch Martin http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077914/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_12

New #ChadVangaalen track Old Heads has me needing to save money to preorder his new album, Light Information from @subpop

New @deerhoofmusic single for new upcoming album Mountain Moves is a super cool and smooth track plus features Jenn Wasner from Wye Oak!

In this world of tyrants and CEOs seemingly hellbent on achieving the termination of our species, perhaps the most rebellious thing we could do is not die. Should we survive the global warming, the lack of healthcare, and the bombs, a more humane future may await us. Maligned for shirking their capitalist duty, it is the younger generations we center. Safeguarding our consciences is only part of the daily challenge, since we also need to navigate corporate-owned electronic media which both aids and saps our energies. Fans of Wye Oak will be thrilled (as we were) to hear Jenn Wasner harmonize with Deerhoof singer Satomi Matsuzaki, while fans of Gloria Gaynor, Bee Gees, or The Bobby Fuller Four may detect homage in the lyrics:

’I Will Spite Survive’
You could outlive your executioners but you’re on tv.
You’re expendable.
Sleep at night, if you can stay alive.
Stay alive, if you can sleep at night.
City breaks, if you can stay awake.
Let her dance, all night long!

The voices of reason and humanity are puzzlingly but systematically iced out of our national conversation by politicians and media bought by large corporations. Whether we’re talking about money in politics, trade deals, surveillance, bank bailouts, healthcare, climate change, Middle Eastern wars, or wealth equality, the mainstream popular view is dismissed as unrealistically ‘far left,’ while the views of a small dissenting minority are advanced as acceptably 'conservative,’ 'centrist,’ or 'liberal.’ That’s why news outlets NOT owned by large corporations are so lovable, and Democracy Now! may be the most lovable of them all.“
