  1. The Mike Myers episode was a gooder, for sure.

    Coincidentally, not long after listening to that I stumbled on this clip of Dana Carvey on Stern (who I don’t normally listen to):

    I knew that Dr. Evil was a Lorne Michaels impression, but I had no idea it was Dana Carvey’s Lorne Michaels impression, and that Mike Myers apparently stole it from him. Full credit to Carvey here for not bad-mouthing Myers, even though Stern was clearly angling for it. 

     


  2. FB post from someone associated with CHORD Productions, who seem to have booked a lot of shows there:

    Mavericks/Dekcuf status - I've gotten a gazillion emails asking for info, so I might as well shed some light.

    Mavericks/Dekcuf was purchased by another owner 2 years ago and sadly he let the place go in December. We can only hope a new owner will purchase the place and keep it going as a music venue.

    One thing is for sure, the metal community owes them a great deal. 16 years ago the venue opened its arms to the metal community when no one else in town would. They have hosted all our shows no matter how crazy they seemed. We went from having 2-3 metal shows a year to 70+.

    They have accommodated us beyond belief, load at 10am, load out at 2am, crazy tour managers, angry soundmen, with no complaints.

    The staff are like family to me and it's literally been my second home for half my life.

    I'd like to thank Brass, Babylon, Dom, House of Targ, Rainbow for helping us relocate existing shows.

    We shall see what the future will hold.


  3. Agreed on wishing some of them were longer, and also that Dana Carvey was great.

    I gotta say though that I didn’t enjoy the Neil Young one as much as I had hoped. It wasn’t bad, and I would even recommend it, but it didn’t really go anywhere as a discussion. It was mostly just Conan telling him how great he was in a few different ways. It seems that Conan does better as an interviewer when he is talking to people whose experience is more similar to his own and he can relate to them easier. That said, still worth a listen, and the series as a whole is quite good.


  4. Wicked. I’ve really been enjoying Conan’s podcast. It’s refreshing to hear him in a longer format, relaxed and out of character being more open free speaking with his guests. Still funny, but the conversations have been way more involved than what you get on his TV shows. And his guests have been equally candid and engaging. The Adam Sandler and Martin Short episodes were especially good. Looking forward to this one. 


  5. I’m assuming Velvet won’t mind if I copy what he just posted on Facebook:

    Attention friends of Bradm:

    On SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5 @ 5pm there will be a memorial picture hanging at Irene’s Pub followed by a toast to our departed friend.  Brad's mother and brother will be coming to Ottawa to attend and it would be great to see a lot of Brad's friends out for this.

    See you all there!
