The first announcement is this: I signed the damn online petition yesterday. Happy? Huh? Are ya?

I was really just hoping to be the one millionth signer, since I'm guessing that there would be some sort of prize involved. Also, if I don't defend the right of cartoon rabbits to interview families headed by lesbian mothers, who will? And in conclusion, I would like to say, "Power to the People. Power to the People. Power to the People. Power to the People, right on!"

The second announcement is this: I finally finished the first episode of "The Political Thing." That means I've got nine scripts in the bag and only four more to go. The next thing I'm going to work on is a collection of sketches and songs I call "Let's Revue," because the sketches and songs are already written and I can just polish them up and knock the thing out in a week. At least, that's the plan.

Finally, I would like to announce that the "Next in the Series" team has grown by a factor of one. Tom O'Neill (known in the Firesign Theatre underworld as Doc Tech) has consented to bring his considerable skills to the editing, assembling, and mastering process. He's also going to compose some of the music and just be a general audio jack-of-all-trades. This is a real boost to the project, and I couldn't be more pleased than to have a partner of his caliber along for the ride.

We've embarked on putting together a demo for the show taken from the actual scripts. This confection will be used to lure unsuspecting investors into our nest. I believe the current internet jargon appropriate here is "Moo-ha-ha-ha-ha!"

I'm very glad you signed the petition, whatever it was. :)
Even though you have no soul.

It's true. My dog ate it.

Always helps to be plugged in to an Audio Jack (of all trades), which reminds me of a nursery rhyme... oh, never mind. I too have signed the petition... Take that, you neoconpoops!

According to, my new Internet stalker, signing that petition stopped the House from cutting $200 million from public broadcasting. Instead, they only cut $100 million. Now, I figure it this way: If only every person in the United States who claims to support public broadcasting sent one dollar to CPB, then the day would be saved. If everybody sent a fin, Buster Bunny would be able to check out all the lesbos he wants and still give the finger to the Man.
