Everybody’s A Critic!

Oh, this is hilarious! The old Jewish curmudgeon meets the Avant-Gard French cinema!

This satire is especially funny if you’re familiar with the history of Jewish humorists in the US during the 20th century. What, you’re not familiar with Jewish humorists of the US? Go watch a Marx Brothers movie – Oy Vey!

I Couldn’t Resist

My husband sent me this. Every now and again, it’s just fun to take a poke at the other side (respectfully, of course):

Is There An Eskimo Word For “No Snow?”

Podcast Cover
Where's the Snow?

I’ve been bitching about the weather, namely, the lack of it. Here it is, the middle of February, 2012 and it’s warm enough to go outside without zipping up your coat. The ground is brown or straw-colored, with foolish sprigs of green that pop out of the ground, only to get wiped out at the first dip below 32 degrees. Mind you, it gets cold but the snow that’s supposed to insulate things (as well as look nice) is nowhere to be seen. For a girl who grew up in Buffalo, NY and spent most of her adult life in the Boston, MA area that’s just not normal.

In a vain attempt to appease the snow gods, I thought I’d post a very charming little story written and narrated by author Patrick McLean. I first heard his podcast novel, “How to Succeed in Evil,” a few years ago on Podiobooks.com. He’s been one of my favorites ever since. This is a story about snow, and the fabled 14 words for it among the Eskimos. Listen – or read – and enjoy. Laugh! Maybe we’ll get a few flakes soon, no matter what you call them.
