Dispatches from the Head

I’m not a complete loser.



Okay, People


I’m not a complete loser. More on that in a minute.

All of the ‘Out of the Garage Tour 2013’ dates are up and tickets are available for them here, except for San Francisco. http://www.ticketmaster.com/Marc-Maron-tickets/artist/831852.

The SF show will be going on sale the week after 1/11/13. The pre sale will be on Wednesday 1/9 at 10AM til Thursday1/10 at 10PM.

That said, I am still in South Florida. I’m about to do my 5th of five shows here at the Fort Lauderdale Improv. I did what I could. I had some good shows. It’s always weird to me when most of the people in the room have no idea who I am and there is a smaller crew of WTFers. It’s difficult to straddle the gap between those who know me too well and those who don’t know me at all. I have to admit it’s a bit frustrating for me. I get too comfortable with you folks and then I have to make a bunch of strangers comfortable with me and, as you all know, I’m barely comfortable with me. But YOU guys KNOW that. I think I did well. I hope all the WTFers had a good time.

I am at the Hard Rock Casino complex and honestly have no idea how this is all a good time. When I left the show every night I had to walk through some kind of tackily overdressed multi-culti dance club clusterfuck. I have never been to one of those kind of clubs. Maybe once for a few minutes when I was younger but I felt like I was in the mouth of Leviathan and wanted nothing more than to get out before I was gnashed to death by the chaos and evil set to a Techno beat.

I was able not to gamble… much. I gave myself a limit, honored it and lost most of it. There’s still a few chips in my pocket so this could all change. By the time I get on the mic for Thursday’s show I could be broke and on some kind of new compulsive bender. We’ll see.

On this show this week I talked to Jakob Dylan. Initially I didn’t really want to do it when I was offered the opportunity because I knew there was no way I couldn’t talk about his father and I knew he didn’t really like talking about him. So, I turned it down. Then his people said he would talk about him but not too much. So, that was the challenge for me—trying not to talk about Bob Dylan too much with his son. I’m not sure I pulled it off but I did start to wonder who Jakob was protecting—himself or the myth that is his father. On Thursday I talk to Seth Green but oddly I talked to him after I made him listen to Bob Dylan on my new stereo.

Enjoy.

Boomer lives!



Love,
Maron
