Julie Klausner, by the way, is now the proud owner of an optioned HBO series: "HBO is teaming with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez and actress Lizzy Caplan to develop a comedy series project" based on Julie's memoir, I Don't Care About Your Band. Yes, that's the Lizzy Caplan from "Party Down," our favorite deceased show. Mazel tov.

Seeing "vulgar", "lilting", "plaintive" and "Richard Rodgers-style" all on the same list is making my heart sing, with fringe on top.

I'm going with Jim Dine-esque.
