If It's Wrong To Love Larry David, I Don't Want To Be Right (cont)

TV Vampires do not get my blood flowing. They look like damn actors with blood on their fake teeth. So HBO's series about Sukie and that boyfriend of hers does nothing for me. Frankly, the show gives me the creeps and not in a good way although if someone offered me the part of an old woman vampire on it, I'd take it. I'm no fool.
But honestly, that show (and I can't even remember the name of it to tell you the truth, oh wait- True Blood?) is just what I have to sit through before Curb Your Enthusiasm and dammit, last night's episode was the last of the season and I doubt I've seen half of them this year but I will.

Oh yes, I will.

Mr. Moon does not especially like Curb. It makes him nervous. But me? Oh hell, y'all. That man's humor is so dark and richly veined that I just want to dive down in it and never come up. And what I think I love the most about it is that David is not afraid to take on any subject whatsoever. Death, race, unusually large penises on small boys, mental illness, religion, sex, childhood trauma- whatever- and he bumbles and he stumbles through situations trying to make things good and always fucking it up and he hires the most incredible actors and in my next lifetime I want to be Susie Essman who plays his agent's wife and who gets to scream things like, "Fuck you, you fucking fuck!" at top volume (which I think disturbs Mr. Moon but delights the fucking hell out of me) and oh, it's just a dream show.
Last night's episode included Michael J. Fox and his Parkinson's and also a little boy whom Larry described as possibly "pre-gay," and to whom he gave a sewing machine. There were also Hitler mustaches, swastikas, suppositories and oh, god, I don't even know.

But here's a short clip of the little boy and the sewing machine and I'm still laughing about it.


  1. Larry David blows donkey balls. I have proof.


  2. DaddyB- Ooh. I want to see THAT scene! Love you too!

  3. I have to say that I watch minimal TV. So I am totally in the dark with that show. "Pre-gay" sounds a bit hard on a kid to me though. Maybe you just had to be there to get it.

  4. Too funny... I laughed so hard. A second Kurt has arisen. And good for Larry to cross gender lines. I gave my 3 year old a doll when I had a second baby... So we could do the more or less same things... I probably need to go and find some more of Larry... I had seen him before but did not know who he was. Europeans, sigh!

  5. Syd- Believe me, it was hysterical. And the kid (great actor!) was definitely pre-gay.

    Photocat- He crosses EVERY line. Yes. Find him online. He's a genius. Well, I think.

  6. i really love larry david. he's horrible.

  7. Dottie Kee Bones- YES! He is HORRIBLE! He is everything we are taught not to be and says everything we are taught not to say! And I LOVE him!

  8. I laughed! I don't watch TV but I'm definitely going to have to check this out. 'Fuck you, you fucking fuck!'. Classic.

    Btw, stop it! I don't have enough time to read you but you make me do it anyway. Oh well, those chores can wait.

  9. Love that show. And tell Mr. Moon that it took me a bit of time to warm up to it. But I've watched it for years, and there are few funnier.

  10. I don't like True Blood any more either. I liked it a bit for the first series, but then I gave up.

    I like awkward humour as well. It's the funniest thing.

  11. OMG. Tell The Moon Man that Larry David gives me anxiety, too. I mean, I think he is totally hilarious but he's SUCH a train wreck. I pull out my hair the whole time saying, "Don't, Don't, don't. . . "


    Now. I did catch this episode as Harry loves Curb and does not have anxiety attacks while watching. Funniest part to me, hands down--

    "Michael J. Fox is about to be Michael J. F--ked!"

    Harry rewound and rewatched that part no less than twenty times.

  12. SisterDoctor- I watched the rerun last night and laughed my ass off at that line. Mr. Moon's favorite line was the one about, "if you handed me your dick..."


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
