Woody Allen: A Documentary

Half-awake, watching “Woody Allen: A Documentary” in bed with Linette and our new son, Arlo. I want to tell you all about the little guy’s birth, which took place in our dining room a few days ago, but I’m finding it difficult to form coherent thoughts. I’d like to blame it on sleep deprivation, but I think it’s probably got more to do with the profound sadness that I’ve been feeling ever since Herman Cain dropped out of the presidential race. Anyway, I promise to post placenta photos, and all kinds of other stuff, soon. In the meantime, though, here’s some great archival footage of Woody Allen. I hope it finds you well.

    You guys aren’t going to cook and eat the placenta are you?!

    But speaking of food…please email me if you need any meals or beer or anything brought to the house!! If I knew your address, of course, I’d already be there. Maybe I’d even stop by when insomnia hits, just to say hi.

    My education was dismal. I went to a series of schools for mentally disturbed teachers.

    How, if at all, did they address the fact that he was having sex with his wife’s daughter?

    And, by “he”, I mean Woody, not Arlo.

    Woody Allen and Mia Farrow were never married or even living together. Soon-Yi was adopted by Mia and her previous husband and in her twenties at the time she began an affair with Woody. By all accounts that I’ve seen, he never played a sort of role as a parent to her. It’s still sort of sordid, but the scandal of it all is laughable.

    I was always amazed that anyone was shocked that he would take up with a young woman. Clearly those people never saw a Woody Allen film.
