He served various roles at the magazine during his employment there. Colacello also wrote for the Village Voice. Soren Agenoux was hired as managing editor.
So this is a eulogy for a podcast. Except its passing has a happy ending. They were both comedic geniuses, known for their precision and playfulness. Nasty, literate, and as honed as a pub dart.
Because, for 40 minutes plus, they are unfiltered id — racist, sexist, disgusting — seeing what it feels like to say every single awful thing that comes to us in our sloppiest moments. Go on YouTube, listen to any track.
Just listen to the first track, and imagine the thousands of outraged Tumblr think pieces that wee chunk of comedy would birth were it released today.
Another favorite Andy essay warhol of mine is Shut Up, Little Man! One of them, Peter Haskett, is a snippy queen, a surviving specimen of the self-loathing gays that lived through the oppressive horror of America in the late 50s and early 60s. If only he could get out of his chair.
Their back-and-forth screechfests and occasional drunken monologue sound like Samuel Beckett writing a two-man suicide note. I used to play it, very low, while writing screenplays, imagining it was real passion and hatred bleeding through the walls of the sterile, eerily silent apartment building I lived in all through the 90s.
Which brings me to this video. This video is a segment I did on a podcast called Walking the Room. Podcasts are the best thing to happen to comedy since George Carlin and Richard Pryor finally broke through the language and subject restrictions that — even a decade after Lenny Bruce spiked himself off of our planet — still held sway.
They freed things up. Not in terms of subject matter or censorship, but in terms of access and connection. Comedians — or writers, or performers, or anyone — can get in front of a mike and spit whatever they want. Voices, viewpoints, sheer creativity and hilarity, all mostly for free, all at your fingertips.
Hosted by Greg Behrendt and Dave Anthony, it was a sometimes unpleasant, always real window into two imperfect comedians and writers, living in Los Angeles, raising families, and dealing with the fact they seem to have a low-level mutant power which, for lack of a more elegant term, make them both no-fail shit magnets.
Walking the Room dropped episodes and then ended on September 29th of this year. The first ten episodes? Horrible sound, echo-ey, Greg and Dave finding their voice, hammering out the format.
In a terrific Facebook post, Dave describes, honestly and calmly, how they both outgrew the show. Over the summer, Greg did a massive, seven week tour of Australia. Dave was accepted to do his one-man show at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and his online Kickstarter raised the funds to send him in under 24 hours.
A podcast as real and honest as Walking the Room — which was essentially about two comedians struggling and failing — would become the pinnacle of dishonesty if they continued with it in light of their recent successes. So watch this clip, then download all episodes and brace yourselves.
I love precision, wit and grace in comedy.Articles about Andy Warhol, including a list of Warhol exhibitions and a filmography of films directed by Andy Warhol.
Characteristics of Postmodernism "Postmodernism" is not a movement, it's a general attitude. So there is no agreed list of characteristics that define "postmodernist art". The most conspicuous Minimalist esthetic in Star Trek is the color and use of colored light.
But something more subtle is almost as important, and that is the sound. Star Trek has a noticeable style not just in the visual appearance but in the auditory appearance, as well — the sound of it. On one hand, there is a sort of Wagnerian musical scoring — sometimes appropriate, sometimes sonic.
Andy Warhol Andy Warhol was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
He often changed his date of birth to «add mystery» but most people believe that he was born on August 6, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Essay Andy Warhol Never before have I encountered more intriguing works of art than those done by Andy Warhol. I have been curious about his life ever since I saw his work in Milwaukee.
I saw his famous work of the Campbell's Soup Can. By viewing this, one can tell he is not your average artist. I'm sure his life is full of interesting events that shaped him into who he was.
