~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ALICIA AMERICAN's New Podcast Series
got off to a rip-roaring start, causing drama and creating enemies
as soon as it got released!
I had asked my conspiracy theorist internet radio celebrity friend Frank Nora to please let Ashley Mitchell
and me upload our new Tony Clifton girl Alicia American
to his onsug.com radio site,
and he kindly allowed us to.
I had thought that the guys there were hardcore fans of various things, so
if any of them liked what we were doing, we might have a longterm fan
and possible friend. It was innocently intended on my part.
But check out the heated initial reaction:
"Not sure this is a good fit for the Underground. Seems more like a commercial
project aimed at a women’s audience. We are neither commercial or female."
"the character is mainly annoying, i guess shes supposed to be, but funny
annoying would be better, just annoying makes u switch off.
ummm maybe well grow to love her, just my 2 sense, my three sense is free."
Oh but the guy from Ireland urges patience with Alicia, which would make sense, I mean "cents" I mean--
"Well it’s certainly different, but how many of us would have been
judged well on our first ever podcast, especially if it’s less than three
minutes ling? My first one hundred shows sucked big time! :)" ~~ Neal
Neal, our next podcast will be less than TWO minutes ling!
The reaction was so much more awesome than I had anticipated!
They knew this was a character, well maybe Eddie couldn't comprehend that, but
the other two must have--
yet still responded to "her" as though she were the bad guy wrestler!
The last time I did Tony Clifton girls, I had one girl in Australia and another in Ireland
performing the characters and we put it anonymously in front of a teenage audience and younger--
they responded to the characters angrily as though they were real people.
This time, Ashley and I have put clear credits on the audio and released it
to an audience of middle-aged (mostly) right wing male conspiracy theorists,
and they STILL responded in a style Pavlov and Andy Kaufman would have enjoyed.
It's been so long since I've done anything with balls, I forgot about the haters, haha.
It reminds me of the old days with Lisa-- she was the most hated girl on YouTube back then, haha.
You don't realize people are paying attention until you start to get haters.
I used to know this girl who pointed out to me that
half the people who have heard of Madonna HATE Madonna.
If people are pissed at you, it means you've gotten under their skin in some way.
I personally loathe Lady Gaga and have never heard any of her music, but I know this means
she must be successful for me to abhor the notion of her.
So obviously if these guys are threatened by Alicia, that means Ashley and I are on the right track.
Wait till they hear next week's podcast, which is about how Alicia enjoys being molested
in public by security at airports!
Or wait till the cartoon comes out about the two girls going to China
and doing bad Jerry Lewis Chinese people imitations in the faces of the locals!
Basically, the idea should offend every stupid American if we do it right,
but it should make some smarter Americans laugh, as well as
many Europeans and Asians and Africans and South Americans and umm.. Eskimos.
I hope Frank doesn't kick us off the onsug.com site but on the other hand...
that would be sort of bad-ass!!!
Like when Andy got banned from SNL!
BANNED FROM ONSUG!TOO "FEMALE" FOR ONSUG!
TOO LARGE-BREASTED FOR ONSUG! or something.
THE BLIZZARD OF 2010!
Look really REALLY closely at that photo. You can see it!
A SNOWFLAKE! Yes, it's officially snowing in NYC this morning!
See video here taken scant minutes ago: http://209show.com/209show/120610snow.html
I'm extra-excited about it because I left my boots in the last apartment when
I moved-- hoorah.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ REVIEWS OF SHOWS I DIDN'T SEE
ANGEL YAU in ASTORIA
I heard it was sold out!
Angel rocks, I'm happy to hear it and sorry I missed it! GEORGE TABB singing RAMONES @ MICKEY LEIGH Book Reading
From what I've heard, it was a great but very emotional event,
as Joey is really missed by those who were close to him.
George is the one who introduced me to Ashley Mitchell,
he is one of the coolest guys in NYC today and in punk rock history.
If you don't already know all about George, you should read up on him: http://www.georgetabb.com http://www.myspace.com/helpgeorgetabb http://www.myspace.com/georgetabb
PHANTOM Moon is a Disco Ball/Rampler Interview! The Moon is a Disco Ball were supposed to come to New York, play a gig in Brooklyn,
then interview/be interviewed by The Rampler a/k/a Frank Edward Nora a/k/a "Andy Kaufman"'s Favorite Podcaster, on our TV show and his
internet radio show simultaneously. But the Moon girls
got into a car accident down south in North Carolina
(nobody was hurt but the car was totalled)
and never made it to NYC at all this time.
However, you can't expect a small thing like reality to slow down an internet
radio talk show host!
He went to the agreed-upon meeting place at 2:09 pm ANYWAY to do a phantom interview!
No, I'm not kidding, here is the message Frank sent to me and Lucy:
"I went over to Katherine Hepburn Garden at the time we would
have met, and tried to see if I could sense all of us there in the alternate
timeline - and I really do think I felt the presence of the other us. It was
very interesting. I recorded it all of course and it will be on episode 1613..."
It seems to be getting a nice response from the fans:
"This could possibly be my fave recording of yours I’ve ever listened
to... this one is a perfect example of why I became a listener to begin with.
Good fucking stuff."
Wow, The Moon is a Disco Ball are good interviewers
even when they don't show up!
That's a unique talent!
Next, Frank should imagine he's being interviewed by Ashley and see in what
ways it differs from the Moon girls' style of phantom interviewing!
Like a science experiment!
I'm joking but I will actually download and listen to this interview my alternate
timeline self was involved in, haha.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The American Girls have a photo album up, and bios
for the actors are starting to get uploaded.
