Garrett the ex-40 year old intern on TRG Show, and Tim Andrews, have been bugging me to find their archive material in my home so they can create demos and get jobs. As if I don't have a full plate myself trying to reclaim my rightful throne as Atlanta's Greatest Ever Morning Radio Host.
But these two sure know my weaknesses and I caved in to their requests after Garrett offered me a bong that smelled like feet, and Andrews promised me an autographed photo of Jamie Massey (!).
As I was looking through old tapes, I came across a dusty VHS, popped it in the machine, and quickly forgot about Garrett and Tim.
If you are ever in Los Angeles, by all means, take the family to all the famous tourist stops. Taste the flavors of the Farmer's Market. Thrill to the Universal Tour. Stare at the Museum of Tits.
Mr. Barris was also the man behind the cult classic film Windy City Heat, the culmination of playing an obsessive practical joke on one man, Scary Perry Caravello, a print shop worker with a head injury, for over a decade.
Don discovered Perry during an open mike night, saw how easily angered and flustered he could become and then set about creating an entirely fabricated show business world around him designed to put Perry in situations that will stimulate and capture his explosive anger. Perry believes all the situations are real. All are set-up in great detail by Don.
I found this video greeting Don sent me for my 40th birthday. It's followed by an episode from his public access TV show, "Simply Don-The Public Access Program." I've cut it down and split it up for YouTube uploading. In this episode, Perry discusses the correspondence he's been having with two sexy strippers from Hondo, TX, who enjoy his work on Simply Don-The Public Access Show, unaware that Don has been the author of all the emails. Enjoy and feel the heat!
