Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

An Answer…Or Just More Questions?

How many famous people are your best friends?

In continuing with the Taylor Swift theme of the day, TotD will now parade his new best-friendship around the internet and allow both of our brands to get a boost. Within the next week, Joel Murray and I will be appearing on Instagram together: will we be on a boat? Maybe we’ll be baking, or jjst being normal. (But, you know: “normal”. There’s gonna be hair and fucking makeup, duh.)

Joel Murray and I came together in the typical way that best friends do: I accused him of starring in Moving Violations on Twitter, and he pleasantly corrected me and also didn’t bring up the whole “being in Moving Violations isn’t something to be accused of” thing.

Also, as you can see above, Joel Murray has now put to rest the longstanding rumors that his brother Brian and Billy were/are the same person. Joel was also nice enough to send along a candid picture of Bill the Drummer taken years ago and never before seen:

DON’T YOU FUCKING LIE TO ME, JOEL MURRAY. YOUR BROTHER WAS IN THE DEAD, OR BILLY WAS IN CADDYSHACK: I DON’T KNOW WHICH, BUT SOMETHING STINKS.

Goddammit, are you yelling at character actors again?

Joel Murray is not telling me the whole truth.

Please don’t do this. He was on Mad Men.

Was he one of them?

What?

Was he one of the men who had gone mad?

It was not a zombie show.

I heard it was.

Listen: how did this seemingly reasonable man end up being discussed here?

He told a Dead-related story on another website, which someone named Jay Marks animated.

That sounds fun.

It is!

That was fun.

A good story well told.

Guy does a good Bill Murray imitation.

Most people just do Carl the Groundskeeper, yeah.

Is Joel Murray related to F. Murray Abraham?

They share an agent and a zest for life.

Close enough.
