At The End Of The Day...


At the end of the day, I still like learning stupid stuff.

Stuff like, say, the fact that the Ogre part in Shrek was actually supposed to go to Chris Farley instead of Mike Myers.

How do I now know this bit of interesting, but ultimately useless, information?

Well it, and the fact that he takes more pride in  'creating' comedy where it didn't exist before than in delivering said comedy is something I learned from Mr. Myers during his recent long-form/no-wave conversation with Marc Maron that was posted-up by the latter earlier today.

Something else interesting?...Both the 'Wayne' and 'Dieter' characters were fully realized by Mr. Myers before he even got to Lorne Michaels' organ monkeyfied latenight meat grinder...
