Oh wow! Those comments on the Reason post! I have a new respect for Deadspin!

I don't recall ever feeling sympathy for David Cross. Nice job, Libertarians.

He could also boost book sales by saying he never liked Jay Johnston or Jill Talley neither.

I work for the publishing house that put out his last book. It's about as funny as those shelter dog commercials.

I bought the audiobook, and I agree with you.

I find him rather embarrassing these days. I think it's the facial hair.

I think it's the being unduly proud of fucking a 20-year-old and trying to pass it off as irony.

This is true. I love him almost unconditionally, but even I thought this was gross.

You don't like 20-year olds?

Wow….
A few of us shared back stages and on stages with the "aging hipster" back when… before Garofalo became strident and Andy Dick knew when to leave the party (with his pants on). Its a wierd but inevitable thing to see your peers tumble into the same pits of shame and public humiliation that were fodder for their own material back in the day.

Any way…thats my view the back seat of my Honda Prelude….its my home for the next few weeks while I work out some issues with my elderly lover.

It's hard to say who ages less gracefully, comedians or rock musicians.

This is pretty amazing for a few reasons. One, David Cross has been an ass-hat for years. And I'm not talking about just his comedic hijinx. Anyone whose worked with him at all in the past 10 years (especially in NYC) knows this for a fact. But the thing is the comedy world is so small and everyone is hustling for work, who has the balls to come out and say that?

I mean, the guy was doing that horrible act about hating his "new" puppy for 3-4 years. Unfunny, delivered awkwardly and generally effed up. And I can't tell you how many times friend would be baffled by how bad his act was. But did anyone say anything? NOPE! Never know when he's going to be working on some new Adult Swim/Comedy Central non-show with local luminaries. And those shows might suck but you might get a credit and career, here we come.

Now he's doing this? And oh yea, the other of a few reasons: He'd usually share this kind of jackaninny hijinx with his pal from Atlantia, Henry Owings of Chunklet "fame"… David and him are tight from way back, and they are both abusive assholes. So why with Gavin McHipsterRacist? Kinda weird on that social level.

But thank you David Cross! After 5-6 years of me telling fawning comedy zombies you're a d-bag, you have proven it AND imploded yourself. Brav-fucking-o Farting Gary, you hit it big time!
