AHHHHH MAHHHH GAWWWW BOOOOOYS!
by Molly Lambert
Indie Rock and Comedy go together like Pinkabet and Bagoog Monamon. First Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster teamed up with Monk creator Tom Scharpling to create longform call-in improv brilliance on The Best Show on WFMU (more on them later this week). On the last broadcast Deadhead Bryce called in to say he now has a son named The Phil Zone.
Sleater-Kinney: (l-r) Corin, Janet, Carrie
MOLLY: Carrie Brownstein is making comedy videos online!
MARLY: Who tha F is that?
MOLLY: Duh, from Sleater-Kinney.
MARLY: Plz, like I care about those dykes.
MOLLY: Actually, Carrie’s the only one who is gay. Janet Weiss was married to Sam Coomes and they divorced and formed a two-piece (Quasi) way before The White Stripes and now she drums as a Jick for Steve Malkmus. And Corin Tucker is married to Lance Bangs, who I was totally just talking about yesterday!
MARLY: I don’t like bands with chick singers.
Fred Armisen with the lovely Jenna Fischer
MOLLY: Aren’t you a singer-songwriter?!!
MARLY: It’s different. My artistic peers and idols are all men.
MOLLY: Sleater Kinney own you.
MARLY: The only female musician I like is myself. I’m not into lezbos like Patti Smith and Joni Mitchell.
MOLLY: They are both straight!
“Yeah I like em’ about yaaaaaaaaaaaay big. Why, is that big?”
MOLLY: Whatever yourself. Yeah so Carrie Brownstein’s making vidz with Fred Armisen as Thunder Ant.
MARLY: You think I know who that is?
MARLY: Wht r his characters?
Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph as Nuni and Nooni Schoener
MARLY: Oh is he Mango?
MARLY: So some guy I’ve never heard of and the dyke from Bikini Kill are doing comedy?
Kathleen Hanna pats her weave
MOLLY: No no, Sleater-Kinney.
MOLLY: Kathleen Hanna isn’t gay, she’s married to Ad-Rock.
MARLY: I don’t kno why u tell me this stuff like I care.
MOLLY: What kind of music do you even listen to?
MARLY: wv4 theyr HAWWWWT!
I am pretty much convinced Marly is a super closeted lesbian. You know how you can just tell sometimes from talking to a person? Also she sounds really forced and weird whenever she talks about guys and sex. But I guess she comes from a stern and repressive Irish-Catholic family. It’s actually pretty sad.
You know who else is totally a closeted lesbian? Lynne Cheney.
Her vagine hang like sleeve of wizard.
Have you read her pioneer women Sapphic slash novel Sisters? Let us quote you some sensual passages while we talk about music blogs for a hot minute.

The Black Kids Vs. Sexy Internet Buzz.
My homophobic cousin Marly “Marlo” Guthrie (she performs as Marlo because there’s a Danish House Music Superstar named Marly) played over the weekend at the Anti-Anarchist Bookstore in downtown Bridgeport. She sent me a pic and a copy of her setlist:
