We’re doing a project where we ask people: what’s your UCB? We talked to Cathryn Mudon about Chris Gethard, ASSSSCAT, and doing experimental shows with Dreadnought.
LW: How’d you find UCB?
CM: I had some friends visiting in town and they were doing touristy things. I was working at J.Crew at the time and they were like, “Come meet us at this show! You camp outside on the sidewalk, we’ll get Chipotle and sit there for like three hours, but it’s super fun!” I was in such a grumpy mood after my shift and the last thing I wanted to do was go sit on the sidewalk, but I went.
That was May. I remember it because it was Fleet Week of 2007 and there were a bunch of naval officers everywhere. So we went and camped out for ASSSSCAT and got into the 9:30 show.
all good peeps with a lot of gems to write down from Cathryn
When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
“Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
That’s it. That’s it right there.
