Sarah Silverman might be in the lead right now in the celebrity crush department. Give me a smart, funny girl, preferably with a foul mouth, and I'll swoon. Listen to this.
Note to Tina Fey - it's not you, it's me. I just can't stay up that late on Saturday nights anymore. And to Claire Danes, all might be changed when I see that new movie you're in, but I'm hoping you don't freaking kiss Steve Martin in it.
Speaking of female comediennes, I love Margaret Cho's standup - I'm one of those who thinks she's this generation's Richard Pryor, in all its foul-mouthed and political hilarity - but her prose writing is just insufferable. Her blog reads like a PC manual of victimology. I picked up her new book to thumb through at Barnes & Noble the other day, and it was more of the same. It's not her politics that I disagree with - indeed, I probably agree with most of it, and admire her fight for death row inmates. But the fascinating (and hot) cover belies what is in the book; there's not much fight here, just a lot of whininess, a lot of carping about white male privelage and a lot of self-victimization. Lighten up, Margaret, lighten up. You sound like a 15-year old girl. Thought the Notorious C.H.O. made me laugh until my sides hurt, I have not heard her last two concert CDs and hope that her standup routine has not turned into this sort of woe-is-me stuff.
