Monica Did the book include the anecdote where John Belushi asked his secretary to come to his office to take notes and he was sitting behind his desk stark naked?

David Does it go into Lorne's right-wing cred?

message 3: by W.B. (new)

W.B. Monica lol. I'm not sure. All I remember about Belushi is everybody talking about the partying and his death. Mostly his death.

David, I had no idea he was right-wing.

Everybody does call him a starfucker.

He's one of those cold assholes who gets the job done when a cold asshole is needed, apparently.

Or that's the perception.

David He's a big McCain supporter. That's why Caribou Barbie came on the show.

W.B. Caribou Barbie lol.

That was a frightening photo.

Stephen always comes down to $$$, especially for comics, I would think. Good to hear from you, William. HOpe the novel is going well. I enjoyed what I read on your blog a while back. Take care.

Monica We have to make it go viral that Lorne Michaels is a right-winger.

message 8: by David (new)

David It's already viral. It was mentioned numerous times in Greater Blogistan during the course of the campaign.

W.B. The accounts of stuff Chris Farley did behind the scenes is hilarious and totally scary. No wonder he's dead. He didn't really have a "reality sensor button." It was all performance. He was what he wanted so much to be: The Second Coming of Belushi (he would get so jazzed when he got to wear clothes marked with Belushi's name the ghost had left behind). I wonder if any of these accounts are apocryphal: like that Farley entered one serious party with all the money people present completely naked with his male "appurtenance" tucked between his legs, impersonating that serial killer from Silence of the Lambs. Then he allegedly took a golf club, stuck it up his ass, removed it and began licking it in a "sensuous" manner. He was also a devout Irish Catholic like Molly Shannon, who would see him praying (she did the same) before performances. Nice.
