Dan: I wanna know, in my white brain, like why do I want it to be a white guy? Uh, and I don’t think it’s ‘cause I’m a hero.
Kumail: I think it’s less of a threat if it’s a white guy.
Dan: Uh- yeah, it – it just feels more like, more like a comic book. It feels like a Batman movie. It’s like –…
“Here’s the one thing I want to say, is that I grew up in Pakistan, and […]—look, Americans have this assumed sense of security, which is a huge privilege, it’s a luxury, and most of the people in the world do not have that. I know I didn’t have it. And there were bombs in Iraq today, and 42 people died. And I’m not saying this to make this [Boston’s] tragedy smaller, but when you read about a bomb happening in another part of the world…try to remember how it felt here.
You read about bombs all the time, like bombs in Syria, and it always just goes off of you, you think it’s like some other world—but that’s the world! People are living their lives there, and they love their kids, and they love food and have favorite ice cream flavors. So just remember how awful this [Boston bombing] is, and how even now you are so distant from it, and how it happens to people all over the world.”

Pleasant discovery for today is Dan Harmon’s podcast; It’s pretty good and quite hilarious! They have a roundtable discussion about the Boston marathon tragedy, and I was worried at first at how it’s going to be addressed with comedy, but it’s actually done quite well and with much honesty (The reasoning behind the “I HOPE IT’S A CRAZY WHITE GUY!” consensus is thoughtfully explained), especially about the larger implications beyond the event itself.
And they’re discussing Zardoz right now, and the batshit insane description is actually moving me to find and see it!!!
It feels like an extended radio-play of classic Community :)
Just in case though, they talk a bit about bombings and violence, so head’s up if those are triggering. Also, filthy language for the delicate-eared :)
Mayor Harmon finds out about terrorism after everyone else. Plus: cake making, tentanus, Kumail, and making love to spiders!
In which Mayor Harmon explores everything that’s already been explored about the topics of Road House, Roger Ebert and Skeletor. Plus: Kumail Nanjiani, Drunk Spencer and the final word on nipple size.
Here I am,
Ain’t gotta dick, I gotta Chicken Noodle Can
All my life,
I’ve been puttin’ this can inside my Chicken Noodle wife
Chicken Noodle God come down from the mountain sayin,
Chicken Noodle Man, you gotta work all day,
Chicken Noodle Man, you gotta cross the River Jordan,
Feed the devil soup till your troubles go away
Whew, I finally finished it! I don’t know how long it took, but Harmontown inspired me to draw again. This I based on Episode 49, as our favorite people fight off the dragon, before the party cuts off its dick and kills it.
I actually finished it a while ago, but was distracted with life that I ended up forgetting it until today. So yes. Here’s Quark about to kick some serious dragon ass.
Oh, and the dragon…I have yet to finish it, but I’m planning on it :)
