—The Ro-Co Review: Episode 45 -- Admission

rocoreview:

In this episode, we see “Admission” (starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, as well as Wallace Shawn, Michael Sheen, and Lilly Tomlin).  Back in the backseat is Samantha Morris!  Topics of the day include:  Nate and Tash talk sleepovers, Happy Endings, Gosling talk, getting into college, movies to watch while folding laundry, and is John Mayer only mom music now?

We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter: ‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.  I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?” My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.” Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks ‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’ It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

Here is me and my mustache inside a space helmet. 
As mentioned so kindly on Neil Gaiman’s JOURNAL two weeks ago, my audio taped reading of Robert Sheckley’s “Dimension of Miracles” DROPS TODAY. 
D of M, as we call it in the trade, is an astonishing and somewhat lost classic of 60s conceptual comedy science fiction. As Neil notes, it prefigures HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE, but via the American button-down mentality of MAD MEN. 
I confess I was not familiar with the book when Neil asked me to read it into a tin can for his new line of curated audiobooks at Audible. (They call it “Neil Gaiman Presents,” but I call it, “Neil Gaiman finds the best and most Gaiman-ey stuff that has never been put out on audio before and conjures up mustached people to read them.”) 
But let me tell you: it is weird and smart and beguiling and great. The best way to enjoy it is to go into a room in Newark and read it out loud for hours over three days as Jeff Bezos drops by and stares at you. But if you can’t do that, you could do worse than enjoy my version of it. 
You can buy it HERE.
You can enter a D of M contest to go to NY Comic Con for free HERE. 
And you can listen to me and Neil Gaiman discuss D of M HERE. 
Thank you, as always, to Neil Gaiman, for inviting me into his strange world. My hero. 
That is all.

IF I HAVE EMBEDDED THIS CORRECTLY, then you are seeing me talking to John Barrowman on one of the last remaining episodes of ATTACK OF THE SHOW. 

Captain Jack and now the true, final death of the Screen Savers. You can see I handle my emotions by falling off my chair. I am sad and happy and proud to have been there. 

That is all.

Hi Tumblr, it’s me, a slightly older person…
I see a lot of you 20 somethings saying things about how you aren’t going to choose the lesser of two evils and that their policy on important matters are identical so what’s the point they’re both stooges for Wall Street and the Industrial War Complex. 
You are right. Kind of. 
I know y’all LOVE the 90’s. Me too. And I remember after after eight years of Clinton/Gore, I thought those motherfuckers were the devil. I was soooooooooooo upset with Bill Clinton waving his deregulation wand and his fucked foreign policy that I was all FUCK THE DEMOCRATS and I strongly advocated for Raplh Nader, even though he too didn’t really care about my “gonad politics.” Even when not choosing between the “lesser of two evils,” I was STILL having to compromise major issues. 
Having been an adult person through 8 years of Clinton/Gore and 8 years through Bush/Cheney, I can tell you without a shred of hesitation that I will line up like my ass is on fire to vote for the lesser of two evils because the greater of two evils almost had us all living outside and eating dog food. 
And if you think that a Romney presidency won’t be worse than Bush/Cheney, you are out of your mind. 
I am fucking begging all of you, please, go vote. Aside from the fact that far more dangerous things are happening on your local level, (like collective bargaining being taken away in Illinois) this shit does matter. 
If you think voting for Obama is the lesser of two evils, you’re wrong, it’s the lesser of three because not voting IS voting for Romney. Not voting is voting for dickbag judges that sentence people to jail in counties that have privatized prisons for minor drug infractions. Not voting is voting to remove pensions and collective bargaining and the last shreds of union power from the people. Not voting this election is voting for Feudalism.
Go vote. 
Now pardon me, there’s some damn kids on my lawn and they want candy.
