HARRY SHEARER: The King of New Orleans

Posted in Harry Shearer with tags New Orleans, krewedelusion, Mardi Gras, Harry Shearer, The Big Easy, The Big Un-Easy, Parade, Hurricane Katrina on 2/2/2010 12:15:50 PM by KT Pierce ~ Voodoo Priestess



January 30th kicked off the first night of Mardi Gras 2010 and our own Harry Shearer became King of New Orleans - appointed by Captain Oscar Diggs of krewedelusion (a New Orleans satirical parade Krewe with a mission to save the Universe).

Not only did Captain Diggs appoint Shearer the King of The Big Easy, but
says "krewedelusion intends to truly empower its leader to govern. Govern everything. Period. Case closed."

Harry Shearer is directing a documentary called "The Big Un-Easy" - a film about why New Orleans flooded, how it was not a "natural disaster," and why it very well may happen again.

Who says The Simpsons don't age??

This Sunday night, "The Simpsons" turn 20 yrs old and the Internet is going viral with excitement (I mean, hey, they're almost drinking age!). 

For those who don't know (welcome to Earth!) - our very own Harry Shearer performs a huge range of the voices for the characters on "The Simpsons", including (but not limited to):


  • Mr. Burns
  • Waylon Smithers
  • Ned Flanders
  • Principal Skinner
  • Otto
  • Reverend Lovejoy
  • Dr Hibbert
  • Kent Brockman
  • Jasper
  • Lenny
  • Eddie (the cop)
  • Rainier Wolfcastle (McBain)
  • Scratchy
  • Kang
  • Mr. Bouvier (Marge's father)
  • Dr. Marvin Monroe
  • Herman
  • Mr. Largo
  • Marty (from KBBL)
  • Dr Loren J. Pryor
  • Jebediah Springfield
  • Judge Snyder
  • Sanjay (Apu's brother)


Wow!

Harry was featured in an interview with the Associated Press, and from there - it's spreading like a Winter Cold across the globe!

Here's a sneak peek:


Shearer, who began his career as a child actor... keeps a multiplicity of projects under way. He hosts his own signature channel on the "My Damn Channel" comedy Web site.

"Matt [Groening] has a satirical, anti-authority streak," says Shearer. "From the beginning, 'The Simpsons' was taking the side of the family against all the authority figures and institutions that buffeted them in the modern world. Certainly, that resonated for me."

To celebrate - we're asking all of our readers/fans to dress up as Ned and attend church this Sunday (JUST KIDDING).  In all seriousness, check out some of the awesome articles going around on the web with Harry's exclusive interview and don't make plans this Sunday evening.  This week's episode ("Once Upon a Time in Springfield") will be one you won't want to miss!


(It doesn't hurt that they're mentioning My Damn Channel, either... whoo-hoo!!)

Christmas with the Devil


We're getting into the Damned Christmas Spirit with the Dark Lord of Hell while getting our groove on to some Hellacious tunes... Mmmm hmm...

Head on over with us to Harry Shearer's Channel for a dose of Devilish Holiday Cheer starring Judith Owen's jazztastic vocals (so haunting you'd think she was blessed by the Devil himself) and the GREAT Harry Shearer's soft, fiery rhythm on the upright bass.

Take off your sweater and boots, the heat is finally on this Christmas at My Damn Channel!
