“OH my God! It’s Nardwuar!
Nardwuar the Human Serviette!
Don’t you know who Nardwuar is?
He’s the biggest freak in the whole of Canada!
He’s like this insane, insane guy.
He’s out of his [expletive deleted] tree!
He’s crazy, but you’d love him.
I can’t explain why!
He’s the biggest freak in the world.
He’s like the Everett True of Vancouver!
You’d love him!”
“You’re funnier than a [even worse expletive deleted] !”
(Snoop Doggy Dogg)
“A National Treasure.”
Happy O Canada Day, everyone !!
But with all due apologetic tips of the ol’ Stetson towards Stompin’ Tom Connors, the Great Wide Northlands now houses an equally brilliant anti-icon against whom such obviously wussy pretenders to the thorn as Stephen Colbert and Ali G most particularly pale so very, very much.
For whether inquiring over the width of Mikhail Gorbachev’s pants, confronting still-dumbest Monkee Peter about toxic tomatoes, or getting extremely jiggy with one of Cynthia’s original Plaster Casts, that truly intrepid reporter-and-then-some Nardwuar (the Human Serviette) has at long last joined the hallowed ranks of Edward R. Murrow, Helen Thomas, and Chuck Barris in the uppermost annals of small-screen journalistic immortality.
Yes, and it’s almost ALL there – five and a half damn hours’ worth! – along with a handy full-colo(u)r Teleguide booklet to boot lovingly all crammed into a deluxe new two-DVD bonanza from those fine folk over at Alternative Tentacles. Why, you even receive as well actual footage of Nardwuar getting terrifyingly down with his very own garage-bop combo The Evaporators!
But don’t just take my words for all this: The Man The Myth The Miracle Himself would also just love to tell us Lost Groovers that, and I do hereby quote, “More DVDs are hopefully coming sometime in soonish! I have tons of footage to release and if anyone wants a sampling on what that might possibly be unleashed please hop to www.nardwuar.com
Thanks for your time, keep on rawkin in the free world! And doot doola doot doo…”
To which I can logically only add, “…Doot Doo!”
