Henry Phillips on the Hootenanny podcast
Often referred to as a “skin thickener” or, by people who don’t have as a fond of opinion of it, one of the worst rooms in the vast LA comedy scene, The Big Fish Bar & Grill in Glendale, CA was profiled on This American Life on Showtime in May 2009. In this segment, it’s almost haunting to see the likes of Kyle Kinane, who is about to do an hour special for Comedy Central at The Fillmore in San Francisco, argue with a bar regular/angry heckler about Jimmy Buffett.

I Don't Mind
SONG OF THE WEEK: BUZZCOCKS - “I DON’T MIND”
by Mara Beckman
I had never cried from receiving a present until Rachel Hastings (she writes the political articles for Lady-Bro) bought me a vinyl of the Buzzcocks’ Another Music in a Different Kitchen, signed by the band with “To Mara, Pete Shelley” written on it. A bit of my response was genuine surprise as I thought she was bringing me back a t-shirt from Coachella, but mostly I thought about how cool my friend is for being so thoughtful. So let’s listen to my favorite song from Another Music, and be thankful for the cool things friends do for us.
