The Better Anecdote [Jun. 20th, 2008|01:52 am]

Today, at the comic shop, Peter Wolf wanted to buy Old Jewish Comedians, but couldn't because Alan Dershowitz bought our only copy off Tony last week.

(Oh go look them up, you damn kids! Then get off my lawn.)

I really want to turn this into a punchline, but it's not working.

We were listening to one of my cheerful mixed CDs (and I didn't know who he was yet, though I thought he looked familiar) and he asked me who was performing the current song. (It was "Code Monkey.") I told him Jonathan Coulton and he nodded and repeated the name.

So, if you know Jonathan, you can tell him Peter Wolf has heard and seemed to like his music.

Well, I'll ask him if he ever comes back into the store...

His lacky, who reads his mail (sent to joco@) is at scarface@…
Given the existence of a lackey, said lackey replies to mail and promises to send the good stuff along to JoCo.

Um, that smacks of wankery to me (for me to send the email, that is; not the lackey).

Now if the #%@*ing record companies would just re-release Lights Out on CD already. ("Hi, we're a bunch of evil #%@*ing morons. People are asking $180 for something we used to sell, and we're not seeing a penny of it.")

That makes me happy in some very odd way. I am truly thrilled and amazed sometimes at how small a town Boston/Cambridge can be....

Heh. I see Peter Wolf around a lot. The guy *will not* let me buy him a drink. We've sat at bars together for hours and he refuses to let me ever buy him a drink, even if he's bought me one. It's a quaint old-fashioned notion that women don't buy men drinks, and it kind of cracks me up, coming from a rocker. :)

That's funny. He was so... I dunno... entitled at the store. (Granted it was in subtle ways that many people probably wouldn't notice.) Still, it's a funny contrast that he does the gentleman thing.

You should buy him a drink from across the room so he can't object 'til afterward! *grin*
