Radio Show Offers Forensic Analysis of Sam Kinison’s Soul

This week’s edition of The Outer Limits of Inner Truth kicks off with audio from one of comedian Sam Kinison‘s many hilarious bits. The one about the dichotomies of world hunger:

“You see a little [starving] kid out there [on TV] and you know, the film crew could give this kid a sandwich… You know there’s a director, five feet away, going, ‘Don’t feet him yet! Get that sandwich out of here!! It doesn’t work unless he looks hungry!’”

While the overall spiritual POV of this radio program is certainly not everybody’s cup of tea, it’s yet another reminder of just how far and wide the audience net has been cast thanks to the power of the Internet. Fans of the comedian will definitely want to bookmark and listen to the September 11 episode of this Star Com Radio Network offering, as it features a lengthy interview with the comedian’s brother Bill, who also co-authored the 1994 book Brother Sam. The portion of the conversation covering Sam’s interactions with Robin Williams is newly poignant. (Starts at 57:30 mark.)

ShutterstockKarlLagerfeld2012Here’s one way to beat the print newspaper downturn. Target a very narrow niche in Europe and China, and hire Karl Lagerfeld as your namesake editor-in-chief.

A comic strip, street-style photos and a list of hot spots round out the “satirical” broadsheet, which carries four pages of advertising for Lagerfeld brands. Tongue-in-cheek elements include fictional personals and Choupette, the couturier’s pet cat, serving as guest editor and reporter.

Rich People Mad at Other Rich People

Vogue contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo and her billionaire husband, Andres Santo Domingo, are pissing off their Gramercy Park neighbors. According to the New York Post, the couple is having a geothermal well installed under their home, and the drilling is “deafening.

A geothermal well, for those who are interested, is a heating/cooling system that you cannot afford.

Installing a well of this nature requires a 1,600-foot hole, and that means a lot of loud drilling. Santo Domingo’s neighbors are furious. One person told the Post it was “unconscionable” for the couple not to consider the noise.

The head of the Gramercy Park Block Association added, “People are calling me in the middle of the night saying they can’t cross the traffic. They should have been working with us to address safety.”

How will this all end? Will the residents of Gramercy Park persevere? We’ll be sure to keep you updated with any developments. In the meantime, try and put their suffering out of your head and enjoy the weekend. We know, it will not be easy.

The “Streaming” section also highlights Jeffrey Tambor‘s Amazon show Transparent, Season Two of Amazon’s political drama Alpha House and the AOL series Making a Scene with James Franco.

“Streaming is more important than it’s ever been,” EW editor Matt Bean tells FishbowlNY via telephone. “The quality and caliber of the programs on streaming outlets cannot be not ignored. Our readers, even more so than with TV, need a guide to that kind of content because it comes at you so quickly. And in many cases, at such a phenomenal volume.”

“I think James Franco is one of the most fascinating actors in the business right now,” he continues. “He just tries things. We’ll have to see how he does with this [AOL] project, but it’s certainly like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”
