Short quote(s): membership drives

Wherein how come no one has done a full-blown mockumentary in the Ken Burns style

  • I did sit through all of Jazz, carefully counting the number of times in 19 hours that PBS's golden boy allowed a whole song to be played without interruption. The final total: 1.
  • Burns devoted the same amount of time to Louis Armstrong's recording of "Hello Dolly" that he spent covering the entire career of Charles Mingus.
  • It will be interesting to see what happens as we get to fourth and fifth generation zoo-born orangs. They'll probably escape using hang gliders and blow guns made out of discarded soda cups and string.
