not-knitting

Nothing makes me want to smack my fellow knitters with my cane more than seeing yarn bombs on hand rails.

Never ever put anything on a hand rail, but especially not things that make it slippery or harder to grip!!!

(Actually, because neurodivergent people may have issues with touching knitting, especially once it gets wet or dirty, don’t put yarn bombs on anything people have to touch. But really, really don’t put them on safety features!!)

Hannibal Buress on his new show and newfound celebrity

The A.V. Club: There aren’t any advance screeners for Why? because you’re shooting each episode the day it airs, right?

Hannibal Buress: Yeah, man, no advance. We’re just dropping it out of nowhere, but not really out of nowhere.

AVC: So what’s the show going to look like? What’s actually going to happen on it?

HB: It’s going to be like—did you ever see the Michael Jackson “Remember The Time” video? It’s going to be like that, but a comedy show. [Laughs.] No, it’s going to be some sketches, some interviews, some man-on-the-street stuff. It’s going to be my show. Yeah, man. I don’t know why we have to do this. Not the interview, but people, [asking] “What is the show?” I don’t know, it’s going to be funny. I don’t like selling it. [Laughs.] It’s just going to be funny shit from my perspective, and that’s what people can expect.

AVC: So you didn’t go for the traditional Hannibal Buress Show kind of sitcom.

HB: No. I’ll do that when I’m 38.

AVC: What’s the creative process for the show like, and how is it different from what you’ve done in the past?

HB: We’ve got seven or eight writers and we have a pitch meeting, people come up with stuff, and then I decide what pitches to go forward with. I write stuff. It’s cool to write and produce my own stuff. It’s been nice to kind of be all parts of the process and form a show from scratch—the tone of the set and the colors, picking the theme music, and casting, and figuring out all these different details.

AVC: So you’ve been able to make kind of your dream show?

HB: I wouldn’t say my dream… Yeah! Yeah! One of my dream shows! My ultimate dream show wouldn’t be on Comedy Central. I don’t think we have the budget for my ultimate dream show.

But the Inquisitors who think eating meals alone in their room is strange?

Inquisitor Cadash, Adaar, or Lavellan being used to at least one large communal meal a day with their group or clan, if not every meal. The Inquisitor used to passing bowls and plates of food, chatting with the people they care about, finding out the news of the day, sharing old stories and tales, reinforcing familial and platonic bonds over shared food.

The first time Josie offers to have a meal sent up as they scribble away over paperwork at the desk in their room late into the night, the Inquisitor looks up at her with a hurt and confused look on their face. Are they being punished, sent away from the group to eat alone? 

They put aside all their work to head downstairs with her, hearing all the chatter and clatter of cutlery as they get closer to the great hall. Their stomach rumbles with all the smells of food they’d never even imagined before the Inquisition. Yet here they are, eating new foods in unimaginable quantities with their new clan/group/family, and their new life and new responsibilities sit a little easier on their shoulders with the comfort they find in this familiar scenario.

In 2007, this music video for Beautiful, Dirty, Rich was made. It was filmed at The Knitting Factory club in NYC and showcased Lady Gaga and Lady Starlight burlesque performance art pop show ‘Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue’. If you watch closely, you can spot Gaga’s laptop next to her, which was nicknamed “Plastic Gaga” after Yoko Ono. -(ladygagaeras)
