I find it interesting to see how the topics of his jokes have changed as he (unlike me) has aged. Lots of stuff about raising kids, divorce. He spent a good twenty minutes on jokes about… mortgages! Less than what’s considered average nowadays about politics, a good thing.
You will see zero photos about the show because they had the most extreme no-phone policy I’ve ever seen, forcing everyone at the entrance of the theater to put phones and smart watches in an opaque pouch that you can only open with a magnet, no unlike the security tags on clothing at stores.
This year my SXSW participation was scaled back to just a couple of acts last night. It was the Trinidad & Tobago showcase. The two singers: Isasha, who played for about 10 minutes due to technical issues, and Destra García who put up a good show.
It’s been years since The Ugly Nun was last seen. Many were hopeful that was the end of it. They will be disappointed. Tonight there was a confirmed Ugly Nun sighting, and it gets worse: in spite of being celibate, she appears to have procreated.
Oh, the humanity!
Disclaimer: the smaller Ugly Nun is actually a paid actor, his name is Ilan Kirsch. The larger one, nobody’s sure what that is.
I’ve posted some photos from last Saturday’s gathering organized by Rebecca and Eli at Icenhauer’s celebrating the fact that I’m leaving town. I hear the real party is happening this coming weekend. I fully Rebeccammend you check them out in The MKX@ Photo Central.
Thanks to everyone who showed up. And those who didn’t… congratulations on becoming members of my black list.
The Ugly Nun shows her face one more time at a recent Purim Party. The Ugly Nun will keep appearing until every single person in the city has seen her. At last count, there were still 4 more people to go.
