If you think Todd's twitter spam was bad, try following Norm Macdonald.

Todd nailed that add so hard. I'm so hungry for a hand-delivered, fancy-packaged, healthy snack-attack right now.

I am a HUGE Norm fan. It was a sad day when I unfollowed him. His twitter feed was just awful.

This is the second time I've heard Todd Glass saying that he is the actual writer of his book, and not the ghostwriter (the first time was on Comedy Bang Bang, I think).

I think it's pretty simple: if you didn't sit down and write down the actual words, and structured your writing (this is probably the most important), then you didn't write the book.

Yeah, he also talked about it on Norm's podcast.

M*A*S*H was really good for the first three seasons, while McLean Stevenson and Wayne Rogers were still on and the writers were not required to show us how sensitive and human everyone was at all times...there were scattered good episodes and bits in later episodes, but it got pretty dire, indeed (the only downside to the first four seasons was that the sexism and unintentional racism infrequently could get up the nose). The Mary Tyler Moore Show was great as long as you could take how everyone had to think Mary Richards walked on water, even while they were yelling at her (similar to the Alda ego trip in the latter half of M*A*S*H). Welcome Back, Kotter got real tired, real fast...like most of ABC's comedies. Dan Savage makes some fine points about the heterosexism of Barney Miller, the best of ABC's comedies in the '70s pretty much (maybe with The Odd Couple, amusingly enough), but I forgave BM a lot whenever Steve Landesberg was onscreen.

i love mr glass on other people's podcasts where he has to stick to a bit as it goes like with the naturebox "ad" on this episode, without resetting it over and over to try to get it perfect like he does on his show
i also like him on his show but structure can really help him sometimes. its like an author who starts selling millions of copies of whatever he writes so he can put out his vision without any editors, but ends up with several meandering messes. its very rare IMO that todd resets a bit on his podcast and it turns out funnier because of it
its his show though and he's the comedian with decades of experience not me, and its not like he's charging me by the minute for his podcast or anything, so i can go fly a kite

"You think this guy was going to use the flashlight to finish off the bodies? Like, hey- this guy's close! This guy's got no legs. CLUNK!" I had to pause it and rewind it because I didn't hear anything for the next 30 seconds.

I made a clip of the Naturebox spot, you can listen here.

I just listened to this and had to pop in to mention possibly my favorite joke of the whole show, which no one there acknowledged and may not have even heard. When Jimmy was trying to guess the age of the celebrity that turned out to be Gary Cole, he asked "Is he a young guy? Is he 40, 48?" Killed me.
