Sympathy for the Ball Slasher

Below is video footage from last Wednesday’s “Paul Lundgren Happy Hour” at Teatro Zuccone. As a primer for the video, you might want to read my latest column.

Props to Dean Vogtman and Dan Fitzpatrick, videographers extraordinaire.

  1. Quotes pulled from

    “acclaimed newspaper columnist”

    “infamous newspaper columnist”

    Are these statements tongue-in-cheek?

    “Arrowhead Regional Arts Council” grantee:
    The art of self-promotion?

    Does anyone find this man humorous or entertaining?

    Isn’t the ball-slasher story quite old by now?

    Is it just me?

  3. Paul,

    Thanks. Great show. Fun & funny. Rachel was right on too. Looking forward to the other shows.

  4. @ BeeJ, the answers to your questions:

    1. Definitely. Anything else wouldn’t be Paul Lundgren.
    2. Perhaps. How often do you big up your work?
    3. Of course! He’s a riot! I’ve been reading Paul’s work (both professional and otherwise) for quite some time.
    4. Sure it is, but what the hell, right? I mean, if Leno can keep telling the same jokes over and over, why can’t everyone else, right?
    5. Yeah. It *is* just you.

  5. You know those plastic sheets of packaging bubbles and how addicting they are to pop? I gather the ball slasher graduated from those. Those bubbles should be labeled a gateway fetish and regulated like porn and pills.

  6. Mother’s milk leads to everything. It’s the original gateway drug.
