Ter-ri GAAAAAR

I hate to keep pimping AV Club stuff in this space, especially when I didn't write it, but Sean O'Neal's Random Roles interview with Terri Garr is a thing of beauty. I've always loved Ms. Garr, and this interview, conducted after she started recovering from a brain aneurysm that nearly brought her low, is charming, funny, honest, smart, and insightful as hell. Give it a read, youse mugs.

In somewhat related news, "aneurysm" is very hard to spell. I'm not looking forward to my first one, I tell you that much, I can barely keep abreast of the word now.

Saying "abreast" is the only interaction I have with the damn things anymore.

Well, there's your problem! There's no "breast" in "aneurysm"!

That makes me sad. If not THE best, breasts are one (two?) of the best things to interact with, in my humble opinion.

Not only did she live, but she came out of it badmouthing other dead people! That's moxie.

I am similarly biased, but I think that interview is amazing. Probably one of the best they've ever run.

You ever hear that exchange between Garr and Jonathan Katz? They were apparently staging some sort of contest regarding their efforts to stay ahead of their respective MSes, and Katz's trash-talk to Garr was along the lines of "I'm gonna make you wish you had Lupus!"

So far, the only people I know with MS are funny people.

...and the AV Club once edited one of my entries because it contained a possibly tasteless lupus joke! FULL CIRCLE, MUVVAZ

It's a fine site. Some of my favorite stuff comes from the AV Club blog.

I had no idea about Teri Garr's health issues. I will be sure to read that article, because I also really like her. My dad used to think she was hot, which was weird because as a younger gal I used to really identify with her for some reason (although he did not know this).

Anyway. What?
