Wasting time with Tim Carey, Tila Tequila and Charlie Brooker

I wanted to write tonight about Chris Lee, the family-values touting Republican Congressman from New York who resigned today, after getting busted for soliciting sex on Craigslist, and the very real possibility that a similar fate may await John Boehner, but I got sucked into watching videos instead. I hate to admit it, but I’m a lazy sack of shit sometimes, just like the rest of you.

    That is the first time I’ve ever found Jennifer Aniston even remotely interesting.

    As for Carey, have you seen this footage of his never completed film Tweet’s Ladies of Pasadena? It’s incredible.

    He plays “Tweet Twig, the only male member of the Don’t-Drop-A-Stitch Knitting Club, in the unfinished film. In it he has a 300 pound wife, goes everywhere on a pair of roller skates, and tries to clothe all the homeless and naked animals in the world.”

    I like Tila Tequila better when she’s covered in juggalo poop.

    Where are our smart, adult comedians these days? We’ve got Jon Stewart and, to some extent, Tina Fey, but who is there beyond that? Everything is shock value and over-the-top gross-out humor. We need a Groucho. We need a Will Rogers.

    Groucho was friends with Alice Cooper.

    ALICE COOPER: Groucho was Groucho. Groucho was just like… He was 86 years old and could still rip you to pieces at the drop of a hat. He was so quick, so fast. He would invite me over at night… Well, first of all, he’d come to the shows…

    ANDREW DENTON: Is that how you met?

    ALICE COOPER: … Because he saw us as vaudeville.

    ANDREW DENTON: Really?

    ALICE COOPER: Yeah, he saw Alice Cooper as vaudeville, and that’s what he came up in – burlesque and vaudeville. So he came to one of the shows and saw it and totally took it as, “Well, it’s vaudeville.” So he brought George Burns, Jack Benny the next time. The next time he brings Mae West and Fred Astaire. Now my kids up there are going, “What is this?” because every time I look around there’s a legend watching the show and they all took it the same way: “It’s vaudeville.”

    But Groucho was great. He’d wake me up… He’d call my house at two in the morning and he’d go, “Alice, I can’t sleep. Come over.” So I’d come over there, there’d be a chair like this, there’d be a six pack of Budweiser and a television. He’d be in bed with his beret on and a cigar, and we’d watch movies all night because he was an insomniac. He’d say, “See that guy there?” It’d be an old cowboy movie, and I’d go, “Yeah.” “He’s gay.” “What? But that guy’s a great hero.” He’d go, “No, he’s gay,” because he knew all these guys. He’d say, “See that girl there? Chico and Harpo nailed her.” He’d be telling all these bag stories and pretty soon after about four or five hours, I’d look over and he’d be asleep. I’d take his cigar, put it out, turn off the TV, and go home. Next night, “Alice, come on over.” So he was great. I had a great time with him.

    I’ll see your Jack Benny and raise you a Marilyn Monroe.

    I need to interview Alice Cooper. Does he still spend time here, in Michigan? Does anyone have his number?

    Tim Carey should have mated with Tura Satana. Can you imagine that?
