R.I.P. Bea Arthur (1922-2009) with occasional punk rock

Bea Arthur has left this mortal coil. She will live on in reruns of Golden Girls, and Maude via memory more than actual airtime.

here's an earlier rendition of this same tune by another late icon...

Here's an old clip where Bea shows off her comic stylings...

Here's an excerpt from the notorious Star Wars Holiday Special featuring Bea as a cantankerous bartender on Tatooine

I think that we need to all keep even closer watch on Abe Vigoda now. Here's a site that can help.

Eric Lewis at 5pm today at DNA Lounge

See my post on Laughing Squid for all the details


The incredible performer Eric Lewis (@eleww) is playing live tonight at a free show at DNA Lounge. DNA has been battling the state ABC board, so this is a benefit as well.

I saw Eric play earlier this week and shot video and images that are now on Flickr. He's a really special performer (read my lsquid post for lots more detail).

Here's one more video that I discovered on of an impromptu show that he did after his famous set at TED earlier this year....

Two Videos That Showcase Change That We Can Believe In

Two great political clips from today, one on TV and the other in Congressional testimony. Lawrence O'Donnell forcefully rebuts judge-a-book-by-its-cover defense policy from an ex-Bush admin'er and Hilary takes apart photo-opp-with-Chavez-gate like only an adult from the winning political party can. Both via Talking Points Memo TV. Enjoy.
