In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Ha, I remember that one. I definitely think it's time for us to be one nation under a groove.

George always was my favorite Clinton - just like my favorite Marx was Groucho.

I have to say though, that I am concerned that Dr. Funkenstein appears to have been left out of the Operations Plan.

Bill Kauffman once told a story of a little urban black kid who identified one of the candidates in the 1992 election as "George Clinton". Kauffman went on a riff from there, similar to these.
