I've been looking for an excuse to roll over the Condaleeza Rice-as-Cylon photo in my last entry, which is starting to look old. So here it is: The Firesign Theater
are performing live, tonight, (2/4/05) at the Marin Civic Auditorium in San Rafael. The show will be web simulcast at 8PM PST on Radio Margaritaville
I'm aware of this, because Philip Proctor called in to David Gans' Dead to the World
radio show, Wednesday night, to announce it. Proctor (or Procmer to diehard cognoscenti) free-associated for thirty minutes on the healing power of laughter during this Mold-of-Yancy
timeslice that we're being compelled to
Proctor didn't actually mention President Yancy (or the popular news clown in Phil Dick's novellas who took on the Yance-men and exposed them) by name
. That's just my fanboy way of inserting yet another "life imitates science fiction" riff into this livejournal (and another plug for this year's Potlatch
s-f convention, while I'm at it).
I'm getting a bit too old to buy into the meme that we can all hide by being dead to the world (even as is the host of that eponymous radio show). I'm for enjoying whatever engaging mind trips the Firefolk can deliver, and
helping the news clown out: by writing to legislators
about the stuff we can't laugh at, while we stay on top of
Neocon Republican bullshit.
