It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that is waiting for the spaceship to arrive and take it to safety as the world ends. It’s not here yet but we expect it at any moment. Honest.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that is offensive, morally reprehensible and should definitely not be listened to by impressionable plant life. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.
Nice. Stumbled across this on YouTube: Angela Lansbury and Len Cariou are back in their roles as the original Mrs. Lovett and Sweeney Todd, respectively, for Sondheim‘s 75th birthday concert from last year. Not of bad voice either of them, all things considered: especially Lansbury, who pops right back into character and pretty much nails it. Fun as hell.

I won’t go so far as to say that Jessica Fletcher (Lansbury) was a reluctant author, but she liked a simple life and wouldn’t even have gotten published without a manuscript of hers getting turned in without her knowledge. At a costume party after her big introduction into the world of publishing, a guy dressed up as Sherlock Holmes winds up taking the celestial dirt nap. It’s up to Jessica to figure out whodunit. And then she keeps on figuring out whodunit for over a decade.
