Strange Wizard Things Are Happening.....
Clearly being included in a photo essay in TONY is a long way from that Bowery Ballroom performance of --- oh, nearly 5 bloomin' years ago, by Merlin's beard! How, I wonder, am I going to top this one? And, come to that, will Comedy Central's people see things Robert Smigel's way, that I might yet crash Comedy Love Call II, that benefit thingie for children's autism, set for October 15th at the Beacon Theatre, with that expletive deleted Jon Stewart as host? (Oh don't worry, Mortals --- I promise to make nicey-nicey with Jon; I can learn to let go of losing losing the damn Grammy Award and all that!).
Anywho, I want to briefly acknowledge Emperor Tymothy and Empress Ivory. They will shortly depart from their Imperial Thrones as rulers of the Empire of the Emerald Dragon --- and I'm going to miss the time I had giving them advice, telling them tall tales, and goofing off in general.
Speaking of goofing off, that's what I intend to do upon the morrow. Tomorrow being Labor Day, I will very likely hang out at Bethesda Terrace as per usual, people-watch, pose for pictures, do a few meet-n'-greets, and essentially snooze me Wizardly butt off. Any questions?
Fearlessly yours, as always,
