Did you go to Dinah Shore? I did, it was great! I performed. I didn't really get to stay very long, I had to leave right away to do a gig somewhere else.
What do you think of former Miss California Carrie Prejean?I just think she's disgusting. I really hate that she represented California in a twisted way, and it's really wrong. To me, I should be Miss California, or Mrs. California. I think it's gross that the right wing are using this dumb girl -- she's straight-up stupid. It's so pathetic that you would choose someone so fucking dumb to represent your dumb cause. To me, she's just the problem and also what their downfall is. It's a dumb argument -- it just shows how shallow and stupid their whole thing is. I come at it from straight-up disgust.
What are you watching now?I was super into watching reality last year, but I've been working so much I haven't really been watching anything. The only shows I've been focusing on are Austin City Limits and the Elvis Costello show.
And you're making your own foray into music?I've been writing songs with different people -- Patty Griffin, John Brion -- people that I really love and I've been friends with for a long time. These are great collaborators, I'll probably begin recording in November or December next year. My record is coming out next year; it's going to be half stuff I've done over the year. For example, "Eat Me Out," which I did in my show last year, is a big gospel salute to cunnilingus, which is so ridiculous. I guess it's comedy, I don't know. My hero is Weird Al Yankovic. I'm following in his impressively musical footsteps.
