Yes. Let's stop fighting over whether Marc Maron is your favorite or if he isn't. Take it to ChatRoulette, guys.

I can now say with confidence that Marc Maron is not a racist and he is a nice dude.
You look like a really healthy Arthy Lang.

You can be a racist and still be a nice dude.

Nope.

Heard him on the radio this morning he was pretty raunchy as far as sex goes. Good to hear he's finally over his divorce though.

If you haven't listened to his interview with Robin Williams yet, do so.  I actually went into it wondering how much of it I'd be able to stand,  but it was actually pretty good, even though Mr. Williams did go off on a tear or two.

I enjoyed that, of course recently I read a book about the old Comedy Store days, so it was interesting to hear him talk about them.

I also liked the opening monologue where Maron expresses some regret about putting Williams down in the past.

It was rather surprising that Williams was for the most part a bit on the soft-spoken side. Guess for whatever reason he didn't feel obliged to go on too many tears during the interview.

Also: mentions of Sam Kinison, and mentions of cocaine, but no mention of the Sam Kinison cocaine story.

There were a couple of groaners (when Williams described someone's comedy as being "like jazz"), but on the whole I found him rather likable and much less obnoxious than I would've expected.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

I think tht's why i was so surprised by it.  Mr. Williams seemed like a calm, down-to-earth guy.  Also, he had every right to be angry at folks who've accused him of plagiarism and the like (even if their accusations were accurate), but he seemed really contrite and kind about it.  His humility surprised me.

I just saw World's Greatest Dad! Best Williams performance in at least 10 years, and maybe ever.
