Copyrignt 2020 At the Movies


Many thanks to my friends Arch Campbell and Jen Chaney for inviting me to appear on their wonderful podcast, “At the Movies.”  We talked about what we’re watching, our favorite 1980s horror movies (fortunately for me, my favorite horror movie came out in the 80s), the loss of Eddie Van Halen and Murray Schisgal and lots more.

Crowdsourcing Phyllis Diller’s Legendary Joke File

Posted on March 4, 2017 at 3:09 pm

Screen Shot 2017-03-01 at 3.17.04 PMNow this is cool. Legendary comic Phyllis Diller’s legendary joke file of more than 52,000 index cards is now at the Library of Congress, and they have invited all of us to help digitize the files. It’s like Wikipedia; anyone can participate, for just one joke or for hundreds or thousands. Just take a look at one of the jokes and type it up (some of them are just a few words). There are a few simple rules about formatting to indicate underlines, strikeouts, etc. Or, you can be a “reviewer” and just confirm or correct some of the draft transcriptions. Even if you don’t want to participate, it is a lot of fun to scroll through the files online, a real artifact of an era, and of course very funny.
