"...this guy Spiffs videos are very good"
No, Jonathan Coulton isn't TV-related, but he is one of the most delightful people alive and the half hour I spent talking to him was the highlight of my year, if not my life. Not only is he a brilliant song-writer, he's also hilarious and incredibly humble and in the days (...weeks) following the interview, I bugged countless friends with "And THEN Jonathan Coulton said..." anecdotes.
The first show is tonight [7/7/2008] and features Joe DeRosa, Bob Powers, The Buffoons, Amy Schumer, Kurt Metzger and Jonathan Coulton. Be there!"
How did the last good book you read end up in your hands and why did you read it?I received Jon Krakauer's Under the Banner of Heaven for Christmas, at my request. Jonathan Coulton, who accompanies me on guitar when I read in public, asked me if I wanted to read a fascinating and disturbing history of Mormonism and of religious fundamentalism in general. Because he has been such a good sport about playing guitar and wearing a buckskin shirt when I read, I figured I owed him one.
