  1. Matt Manning was trying to remember “Birdplane” by Axis of Awesome, an Australian rock-comedy-parody group. It’s a parody of Five for Fighting’s hit “Superman”. I additionally recommend Axis’s “What Would Jesus Do?”, “How to Write a Love Song”, and “4 Chord Song” for starters.

    And thanks for a great show. Sad things happened today and WRA cheered me up substantially.

  2. Just finished listening to the Love-Haters list.

    Frank Langella is one of the best actors ever to live–if you haven’t seen The Men’s Club, it’s not a good movie, but there is a long sequence with Langella and Jennifer Jason Leigh that is simply nail-you-to-your-chair riveting. Also, Nixon/Frost, which I saw on stage; he did not so much play Nixon as resurrect him from his ashes and BECOME him.

    I will love George Hamilton forever for Zorro, the Gay Blade.
