Why Our Club is Going
to Jon's Head, by Annie
Why Our Club is Going
to Jon's Head
Hi everyone. It's been
a while since I sent out a newsletter, so I thought I'd take this lovely Labor
Day to labor a little for you. Read on for all the site updates and for a few
added Jon news items. Let me know if you find any broken links. Thanks.
So I'm checking out
the JSIA guestbook yesterday, and I find that someone has left this rather shocking
entry (warning: profanity):
The Voice of Reason
E-mail address: benkarlin@i'manass.com
Comments: May you all take a shit on Jon Liebowitz's bald spot.
And I think ... huh. Well,
*that* is certainly rude. So I complained about it on the board. And this is
what happened next.

Comments: It's spelled LEIBOWITZ.
Name: Voice of Reason's
E-mail address: benkarlin2@i'manass.com
Comments: Honey, you have to realize, just because you get off on taking shits
on people's bald spots, not too many others share that passion.

E-mail address: benkarlinonastick@i'anass.com
Comments: A word to The Voice of Reason. Oh, you poor, stupid man. You may not
have realized it, but you have just made a whole lot of enemies, my friend.
This is definitely not an agency that you want to piss off. Just my two cents,
So, what have we learned
from this? One, for whatever it's worth, this person seems to like Ben Karlin,
the TDS head writer. Two, never EVER piss off Andrea.

"I mention how unusual this occasion is, and he laughs softly. How delightful
to hear the laugh of someone so attuned to humor. Still smiling, he looks out
the large windows towards the ocean. Wondering what he is so drawn to, I look
through the darkness. He tells me that one time he came here with her...."

(?) Sept 4, every Wednesday
at 9:30 and 11 pm and every Saturday at 12 am and 9:30 pm, Comedy Central --
Contest Searchlight. Jon had a brief voice appearance on the premiere episode
and was mentioned on the second episode, so it appears he may be a running theme.
No confirmation on whether he will appear again, but you never know.

Central -- Contest Searchlight premiere episode. Jon makes a brief phone cameo.
This is the first of four episodes that will run in a marathon this night.

-- Jon is scheduled to speak at Meliora Weekend, the U of Rochester homecoming/reunion
something or other. I have no idea how to get in, whether you need tickets,
or if you need proof of alumni status. The site says, "Unless noted, all events
are free and open to the whole University community," but I don't know how rigid
they'll be on proof. If anyone has any more info, I'd appreciate it. Thanks
