Paul, how long must we wait for you to play Founder of Our Country George Washington, First President and Proto-Steampunk Frankenstein Monster* on a music album already?
Well, YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH NOW! Because it’s finally happening!
"The year is 2776, and on the thousandth birthday of America, an evil Alien (Martha Plimpton) threatens to destroy the nation, unless the President (Will Forte) and his Secret Service agent (Aubrey Plaza) can convince her it’s worth saving. Together with a cranky George Washington (Paul F. Tompkins) they travel through our nation’s history—past AND future, taking on everything American — immigration, religion, the media, sports, politics, sex, droids, and rock n’ roll. Along the way they meet notable Americans, from God (Patton Oswalt) to the Common Cold (Aimee Mann). Can America be saved? Kind of. It’s complicated.
2776 is an epic musical/comedy extravaganza featuring 28 tracks and over 80 comedians, musicians and actors to benefit OneKid OneWorld. 2776 will be released on July 4, 2014 and is available for preorder today. 2776 was created by The Levinson Brothers and Rob Kutner.”
"I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel."
hey, guess what? this one got me in trouble with people who — i assume — wear kilts + ’30s hats + meme t-shirts + patchy neck hair + swords
