: This week, the Outside Stuff selection
: is..."A Year at the Movies (pts.
These three segments are basically just Kevin reading from his book during a personal appearance at, I believe, a library. He gives an introduction, reads a chapter on his search for a drive-in, and another on cinema grills. He does a good job reading his stuff, and its a very enjoyable book.
I wonder if he's available to read over at my local library?
:...while the Original Stuff
: selection is..."Killer Shrews"
: (Show 407).
Well, "Killer Shrews" takes a while to get moving. There's padding, talking, drinking, more drinking, more talking...then the shrews get to work. Once that happens, at least there's some interest generated, and Festus has a memorable breakdown. Sure it's pretty silly, why wouldn't it be?
The Riffing is fine, though. I liked the Mads Invention (it's based on "Crack in the World", incidentally), and I liked Joel's Will Rogers routine. And has anybody tried to actually mix up a killer shrew, and lived?
Watch out for snakes.
