oh daphny

April 14, 2009

--I very talented artist I know online, Harvey James, put the real life adventure of Oh Daphny and got it published in Vice magazine. Warning: the story is a bit horrific and brutal at its core, the kind of thing you might not have realized can happen in an American local jail.

"I am not in favor of immortality. I believe death for humans is the way of getting rid of accumulated errors - as in trial and error. Without death, the old folks would start to gang up on the babies (the new trials). Immortality ---> immortal mistakes."

"The thought of people in this day and age sitting down to listen to a radio variety show on Saturday evening is rather implausible and was even more so in 1974 when we started "A Prairie Home Companion." Thank goodness Minnesota Public Radio was too poor to afford good advice or the show never would've got on the air. We only did it because we knew it would be fun to do. It was a dumb idea. I wish I knew how to be that dumb again."
