NY’er reviews R.Kelly

Fantastic informative, well-written and humorously tragic review of R. Kelly’s new album in the New Yorker. For example:

Kelly seems to have no superego; he is willing to say anything that occurs to him, no matter how strange he sounds or how self-incriminating it might seem. Many people facing serious criminal charges related to sexual conduct would not include a song called “Sex Planet” on their CD, or, if they did, would probably omit the line about a “trip to planet Uranus.”

Twisted and Wonderful

My Nature Documentary by Jack Handey (via New Yorker). A must read if you have a bizarre sense of humor. Here’s a taste:

“Show monkey in a tree. Narrator says, “The monkey, proud and smart, in his native habitat. But one thing he does not have . . .” Show a giraffe. “. . . is a long neck, like the giraffe. Which is why nature has allowed them to combine forces.” Show monkey on giraffe’s neck. (Note: Monkey may have to be tied on.)……”
