The Best Doctor (revisited)

After Scharpling inspired #BringBacktheBestShow to trend on twitter, I thought I’d reiterate how much I miss the show and get around to digitally colouring this drawing from February.

““If you’re wrong about a war, or several, it should say that under your name on the news, instead of your new book. Because a lot of people don’t have the time, and they just see a very serious man in a very serious suit saying that we’re in danger.”
Listen to the show.

"Punk-rock star, Sid Vicious, was arraigned yesterday in the night killing of his girlfriend. Vicious’ lawyer said that it may be difficult to get a fair trial for the ex-Sex Pistol, considering his name. So, during the proceedings, Sid will change his name from "Sid Vicious" to "Sidney, Not Such A Bad Guy Once You Get To Know Him". - Bill Murray, Weekend Update 10/14/78

My best friend has a saying: “nobody cares.”

I’m not going to go TOO deep into the story behind it because if stars align and magic happens, I’ll be able to give you a fuller, better version at a later time. But for now, that’s what we get: “nobody cares.”

Because nobody DOES. No, no, no — I…

When you say you’re pro-life, you always have to ask the question, ‘Who’s life?’ And if you can’t answer women, and poor people abroad and people in prison - if you can’t check off those items as well, then you’re not really pro-life, you’re just anti-choice.

Jason Sims ’Say Anything’ reboot

Well known to Best Show on WFMU listeners as ‘Jason from Alabama’, Sims wrote a lovely post regarding the end of the beloved show (on terrestrial radio, at least) last year:

Take three hours a week, and do something you’re good at and enjoy doing. Just do it for its own sake. Not to impress anyone. Not for money. Just do it because you love it and it’s a good thing to do.

This was a big inspiration for me in deciding to dust off this tumblr, and I promise you will find plenty of obscure Best Show-related artwork here in the future under the ‘Friends of Tom’ tag. Thanks Jason!

I’d like to believe that TCGS began here, in a way. 

So Chris Gethard was basically Lucas as a child. No wonder I like him so much.

NY Senator Greg Ball has proposed a new bill prohibiting the possession and harboring of killer whales in aquariums and sea parks.

“The legislation (S6613) was introduced after the documentary “Blackfish” highlighted the captivity and confinement of Tilikum, an orca whale that has been in confinement for the past 30 years. Large marine animals, such as orca whales, can develop health issues and become agitated from living in the confined spaces that aquariums and sea parks offer.
Senator Greg Ball hopes to pass the legislation on the 4th Annual Animal Advocacy Day, which will be hosted on May 28th in the New York State Capitol Building. The free, bipartisan event is open to the public and will enable animal supporters to network, share information and lobby their legislators to raise awareness of the need to protect pets and people from abuse.”

Please sign the petition and share it.
