The Comedians of Comedy 2005 Spring Tour:
@ 12:00 AM
From The Attic Of Criminal Records
The lovely Lillian here at Criminal Records in Atlanta went and hooked my laptop up to some sort of nerd wire here in the attic, so now I'm updating while Brian and Zach play records downstairs. My shift starts in about two hours so, if my webmaster posts this ASAP (it's 2:20 p.m. Atlanta time as I write this) mosey on down here to hear my all-Melissa Manchester set.
Thursday, after the terrific Orlando show, was a loooooooong drive. I know a lot of you think traveling with comedians has got to be an Easter basket full of blowjobs, but it's actually kind of sad. We're grumpy, we sleep, we eat bad food, and we play PSP or listen to our iPods. Dave got everyone sick, but I managed to beat the Dark Hierophant in Untold Legends, so it wasn't a total loss.
And we re-discovered the joy of country music. Wow! We got to hear Alan Jackson's "Where Were You...?", where we learned that the way to salve the horror of 9/11 is to turn off horror movies and watch I LOVE LUCY instead. Gretchen Wilson did "Homewrecker" and there was also a song about an abortion. An abortion! And it wasn't anti-abortion, at least as far as we could tell. It was actually kinda upbeat, now that I think of it. Let's see college radio pull that off.
Atlanta is rainy but fun. I'm about to go downstairs and grab another slice of pizza.
Also, here's a final shout-out to Sci-Fi City in Orlando. Yer cashiers are annoying, but the mile-long aisle of lead figures and D&D books made me happy.
