...I smell Butterscotch and twat.

This is the punchline of a Brian Bannon joke the very first time i saw him perform, years ago at Eddie's Attic. I hope it doesn't make him cringe, my putting it here, out of context, but to me, it even stands alone. Leslie and I laughed through the whole rest of his set. At other things, too, but i couldn't get this out of my head. And who would want to!

And it was smart, not JUST kinda gross. And that is Brian Bannon. A very smart guy. Who is sometimes kinda gross. But not always. And very well-read. There's this one about Naked Lunch and a colander handle that i could never ever re-tell, but leslie and i laughed for about the same amount of time. And it wasn't even 'New Year's Eve.'

I sometimes have to read his blog with 2 other browser windows open, CNN search and dictionary.com.

He's a funny guy, and has also taken part, patiently, in a number of our short films. Always adds great ideas. He played a wonderfully hesitant gay husband to my horrifically cro-magnon lesbian wife in one of them. He also played an alien(s) masquerading as a Mormon.

This Wednesday night, Brian will be the monologist for The Doug Dank Project at Push Push Theatre in Decatur. Check out his bio at the Doug Dank site. ...Literate vulgarity. Perfect.
"He failed." !!
No he didn't.
But that's funny.

Thanks for the kind words and cheap beer. The latter helped a great deal.
