I gave a much shorter, infinitely less coherent version of this spiel as a toast at Shoney’s on December 17th, mostly out of respect for my fellow Mayors and Citizens. Also, I was in sugar shock from the high-fructose buffet. If you’re reading this, you probably know a good deal about me. You’ve probably known …
*From some OTHER telethon than the one we performed at on Sunday night as part of WOZOfest 2018!
Join us in Friendlytown as we try to pick the best way to launder all the money generously donated to us by our supporters during a telethon we did recently (note: NOT the one from Sunday. Some other telethon. It happened that time you were out of town. Now stop asking questions).
How should we invest all of these profi- I mean, proceeds? What stocks in the Friendlytown Offshore Stock Hedge Operation (FO-SHO) are looking the best? Are those pork futures looking safer this time around? The last thing we’d want to have to do is call Dustin Meadows back to down to take care of another hot dog surplus this Fall…. but anyway, tell a friend about the show but not any details. Gotta keep our noses clean here in Friendlytown.
It took a very special occasion to get Friendlytown out of it’s normal meeting time, and that special occasion was a fundraiser show for WOZO-FM, Community Powered Radio. Granted, the location was the same (The Pilot Light), but the night, occasion, and audience was mostly different. Our volunteers, Tyler, Beth, and Jared, took calls all…30 minutes (that was our time slot) from a variety of interesting and confused people, to help raise money. Tune in and hear us confuse the hell out a bunch of people for a great cause.
Have YOU ever wondered where you came from? Wondered where your ancestors “kicked it” hundreds of years before you were the gleam in one of their descendants’ eye? Well, in this episode, the citizens of Friendlytown will be getting their results from all of the best off-brand genealogy tests: 22.99 and Me, Ancestry.biz, and all the others.
TUNE IN as our residents engage in these moments of personal discovery and epiphany about why they are the way they are.
Friendlytown is a weird comedy show, and this may have been the weirdest fucking thing we’ve ever done. If you don’t know, now you know. That’s all we got.
If you’ve read your Friendlytown history books, you know that our town was once an unincorporated territory split by QEDopolis and Bonhomieburg until July 2, 1981. Our Independence Day always gets overshadowed by the U.S. one on the 4th, but not this year. This year, we’re getting our best storytellers to hype up the people, places and events in our contentious, surprisingly bloody fight for autonomy. Our Mayors in the Friendlytown Historical Society will re-enact pivotal moments during the war, regale us with tales of the many battles, and impersonate some of the great Friendlytown war heroes.
Ah, youth! Unfathomable in this day and age! Alas, youth continues to happen and these youths need a place to go to flourish. That’s why we opened up the Friendlytown Skate n’ Dash, where the fine young people of our fair town can go skate and have a good time and be complimentary to one another in a variety of manners. It’s Couples Skate night and we want all of these couples to showcase their best qualities as the onlookers look on! Will they get along? Will they do the opposite of getting along? Will they do the Bart Man in the middle of the skate floor and inspire others to do the same? Only one way to find out!
If you have love and life questions, call Friendlytown Psychic Hotline for a free reading and get the answers YOU NEED. Join us as we unveil our town’s brand new service that lets you know the REAL secrets behind your destiny. Our Psychics are telling us that this episode is GREAT and if you don’t listen, a misfortune will befall you! (Misfortune may vary between losing your chapstick, and setting off a sequence of events that will result in the heat-death of the universe). CHOOSE WISELY.
I’ve shared this here before, haven’t I? Probably, I dunno. It’s a great poster by Boston McCown. I’ve been crazy busy recently with the album release stuff and Friendlytown’s Second Bell Festival appearance on Saturday (as well as caving to join Instagram to promote these things but mostly share photos of my cat). Anyway, come …
Mannnnnn. We’ve really done it now. We accidentally digitized all of Friendlytown into a virtual world, including all of its mayors/citizens! Now they’re going to have to escape through a series of challenges devised by some sort of mastermind that’s been pulling the strings all this time! They don’t even know the games that they may play! Can we escape from this Original Sci-Fi Movie(tm) in time for the council meeting to really start in the real world? Probably not, but we’ll have an audience of people watching every move we make!
