"My Daughter's Cat Needs A New Pony"

Congratulations to Isaac Butler and the rest of Rapid Response Team for successfully creating and mounting an excellent re-launch show last night. Some highlights for me included the Groundhog Day's song (which soundly uncannily like a track by Mike Doughty), the numerous superhero references (including talk of Super delegates and Brian Silliman's poem about Dr. Octopus), Clay McLeod Chapman's story about a family of child molesters, told from the point of view of a man posing as a 12-year-old, and of course, the closing song.

(Yes, the title of this post is a line from the show that made me giggle uncontrollably throughout the rest of the evening.)

And let's not forget Mr. Mac Rogers' excuse for being late to rehearsal (he had an acting gig at a Renaissance/S&M fair).

I'm very much looking forward to seeing the next RRT show, which is a “live” commentary on the Oscars (so yes, it goes up on Oscar night).

Welcome back, team. It's been a while.

Slowly responding,

James "Slackjaw Pundit" Comtois
