I am honored to be interviewing Ernest Stewart for the show!
Ernest Stewart a.k.a. Uncle Ernie is an unabashed radical, author, stand-up comic, DJ, actor, political pundit and for the last 9 years publisher of Issues & Alibis magazine. He is an actor, writer and a producer for W the Movie.
His weekly Magazine, Issues and Alibis was kind enough to reprint my essay, I Want to be a Real Boy this week. Our own Phil Rockstroh is also a regular in his issues, along with Amy Goodman, Uri Avery, Jim Hightower, Chris Hedges and Glenn Greenwald. I am thrilled to be included in such company.
This should be a great evening.
The Urban Dictionary misses the Urban Legend of the term “86’d” – When a man too drunk to be served demanded another drink, the barmaid would claim to be out of his favorite, then call back to the owner to “Get the good stuff, the 86 proof” for the customer. The owner would then come out with a bottle, and determine the man cut-off, leaving the customers with good will toward the barmaid, and letting the owner do the dirty work of having to throw someone out. 86’d went from being “cut off” to “out of it” to just plain “over” in our common day use.
An oddly appropriate show-number for the end of Gottlieb’s contribution to the show. He really wants to focus solely on directing his several plays a year, as well as his position of managing the small Teatro Santa Ana located inside the library at San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where he lives. He has been far too busy lately to give his full attention to the WWL Project. I am far too invested as producer, invested as someone who lives and breathes the very air that is effected by the Political Atmosphere to let WWL Radio fail from neglect or indifference. WWL is one of the ONLY truly Left voices left in America. It is the only voice left (LEFT) for those of us who live here. It matters the world to me.
Did I mention I am impatient by nature? Despite my total enjoyment of speaking to and admiration for the man, it just wasn’t a good fit anymore. Demanding boss? Perhaps. Absentee employee? Mostly. But ultimately, the decision to part ways was mine. He is very pleased to be done with blogging and politics, he says. I am sure you all will miss his voice, but you are now stuck with me solo. Sorry about that. Either I expect too much from friends/partners, imagine friendship in what are really actually casual business relationships. Or maybe, ultimately, I don’t play well with others.
Bloggers have a fairly short half-life anyway, most give up and move back to focus only on their personal lives within a few years. The sacrifice to the all and to others is just too great. They needn’t shut down the internet to kill connections on the Left, we tend to do it ourselves, if those connections were only “blogging” in the first place.
I will do my best, and get by with a little help from my friends. I hope not to disappoint you.
Here’s wishing gottlieb the best in his personal endeavors!
Please join us for the only “out there where the buses don’t run” LEFT perspective with interviews, op/eds and straight talk without the hand-wringing PC that has crippled our movement!
Controversy? We face it. Cutting Edge? We step over it. Revolutions start with information, and The Wild Wild Left Radio brings you the best in information and op/eds from a position that others on the Left fear to tread…. all with a
grain shaker of irreverent humor.
