The Show Notes
The Lester Bank Show
Flying with empty seats
Dr. Damian Handzy’s Facts That’ll Fuck You Up
Not that I think this is the main influence of The Lester Bank show, but as I listened to that, I couldn\'t help but wonder - are you a fan of The Firesign Theatre?
Avast, ye CarrieP: I be extendin\\\' a warm-as-Hades\\\'-belly thanks from myselfsome fer clearin\\\' up of yon posting misshap. I find meself wishin for naught but a pirate smiley, but arg, there be none and in lie of that treasure, :D says I.
Now fatten the treasure vaults and hoist the Jolly Roger, ye scabbard\\\'s vermin! The day to speech as the salty voices of us buccaneers be here and ye nay stop the rum til black dusk, arg!
you have to forgive George,
since he has become a truckdriver (http://picasaweb.google.be/vonckbart88/Geotruck#5373930292556719090)
he has become a little irritable
I have my name in with the Eternal Earthbound Pets organization for if and when they expand their network (hey, is that an innuendo? \\\"hey baby, I\\\'ll expand your network\\\"...) to New York State. Because, in the slim-to-none chance that there were actually to be any sort of biblical rapture type thing-y, it\\\'s not the pets\\\' fault that their owners were inconsiderate bastards who got pets knowing full well they couldn\\\'t fulfill their commitment to the pets.
My favorite laugh out loud moment:
Geo: ..the lovely Ms.Information will be there celebrating her BRILLIANT design......WHAT?!!
Ms.Info: [barely audible clarification of her design contribution to book]
[an inexplicably annoyed]Geo: YEAH, FIIIINE!! WHATEVER!
Smooth, George. Very smooth.
Lester Bank is George Carlin, isn\\\'t it?
Holy blazing saddles! Holy crocodile dundee! What the funk?
That Lester Bank monologue thing: I must memorize it. I am gonna do it. I\\\'m going to show the world. Damnit.
Geo, at the risk of sounding uninformed (but I am, hence my very ASKING this question!) what was the inspiration for that intro? I\\\'d love to know!
Holy crocodile dundee, that Lester Bank intro is one of Geo\\\'s best evaaarrrr!!!!
I am absolutely going to memorize it and present it as a monologue and show the world how it\\\'s done! It is gonna happen!
Geo, I\\\'d love to know what inspired that opening bit. If it is a reference to something, what is it exactly?
Dear Lester Bank:
You scare the hell out of me, but for some reason I want to sign up for your newsletter.
Yours in musk,
almost fourteen years ago
Been wondering something for a while now:
Does Geo add voice effects like the plane PA and dramatic echo while doing the cast live, or does he do that as a post-production thing?
