-Patty Duke totally played Helen Keller.
-Oh, and the new popular monster truck Dave was thinking of was Grave Digger. Grave Digger.

In the 1979 version of the Miracle Worker Patty Duke played Anne Sullivan and Meliisa Gilbert was Helly Kells. I guess Patty wanted the full experience.

I LOVED Marjorie, she was great! Very fun and friendly. She reminded me of Maria Bamford, only sedate. New favorite guest, easy.

I saw some Truck Nuts on an actual truck for the first time a few weeks ago, which is not something I expected to see living in New England.
Also, I had no idea Halloween and fireworks go together in Canada, which kinda makes sense since you have no reason to celebrate the 4th of July.

Paul said...

Kyle, Canada Day is July 1st and is the Canadian equivalent of the 4th of July. Fireworks are used similarly on both days.

And I lived in Canada for the first 22 years of my life and I've never heard of anyone lighting off fireworks on halloween.

I almost never hear fireworks on Canada Day, but I hear them all the time leading up to Halloween. And my dog hides under the bed for a month afterwards too. Poor ugly bastard.

Shelouise said...

Honestly, I almost never hear of Canada Day. Dave´s constant reminder´s that it´s Tom Cruise´s birthday each July 3rd are the only reminder I have...that Canada Day has passed.

I'm with Olliver, Marjorie is my fave guest to date.

Oh, and I should be your official American listener, (Minneapolis) as I am a middle aged (41) stay-at-home Mom (to a 5 year old) who has to rely on 20 something Canadian lads to make me laugh. Clearly, my synapses are misfiring. I'm somebody's mother for christ sake, I should set a better example.

Olliver said...

Canada Day and Canadian Thanksgiving are the stalwarts of the Great White North's war of holidays with the USA'icans. Having their independence day and harvest celebration earlier, in a strategic attempt to steal the spotlight from July 4th and November's 4th Thursday.

But their frosty tyranny doesn't end there. Because though they did not posses the power to move Christmas back a few days, they tack on an extra holiday AFTER Christmas; a maneuver popularized by their allies in the British Isles.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to hear that Canada keeps it's own official calendar--if only to confuse southern bookkeepers and tacticians--in which the new year would not in fact be 2009 AD/CE, but rather 142 ACD, After Canadian Dominion.

No wonder your dog is hiding from fireworks and your neighbor's cat. What kind of self confidence is he going to have after being called ugly all day? Well Dave, I can tell you: none. That dog needs a make-over or boot camp. Those solutions can solve anything.

Marjorie was a delight. Definitely among my top 7.

Nananananana, I'm going back in time!
Sideways in time is a fantastic concept.
Also: is this something: Helen Kelis? Her milkshake brings all the boys to the yard? Milkshake of blindness, that is!

Eric said...

It looks like they transport monster trucks in big rigs:

Also, we need to hear more about Graham's bus fight history.

If you're travelling sideways in time, aren't you just looking for a free flight or vacation?

Like travelling sideways in time to the Dominican.

Olliver said...

No, you know who she really reminds me of? Paget Brewster.

I'm pretty sure that fireworks on Halloween is just a Vancouver thing. Unless I'm an idiot, which is absolutely the case.

Christine said...

Fireworks on Halloween has always been a tradition out in the Fraser Valley. Used to scare the bejesus out of me trick or treating as a kid.

Watching the BBC subtitles on that Paul Simon song really makes you realize just how different North American and British English have become.
