ENOUGH ABOUT THE ROBINSONS!!! Boba, you know all.Who are some underrated town residents who deserve the spotlight more?I know a few being Ella,Dewey,Atta,Wendy,and Hatter!
An interesting list you’ve come up with, anon. I agree with you on maybe half of these like...
1. Wendy. WENDYYYYYYYY why have we not elected to build a statue in her honor by now? Wouldn’t she look BEAUTIFUL, maybe looming over one of the paths near Oaken’s? Just a reminder to stay chill and don’t litter! Wendy, I worship you as my sapphic goddess. I mean, look:
2. Hatter. Hatter is actually my favorite person in this town because he provides me with the essentials: caffeine, sweets, and also free WiFi. This site would not exist without Hatter’s free wifi! And so actually i think we should just forget about the election altogether and elect Hatter as Swynlake’s Leader because quite frankly I trust him more than the entire board combined.
Now as for your other options...well...eh. But I’ll throw out a couple more ppl deserving of shoutouts!
3. Susan Webb. OHHHHHHH i have no idea who she is or where she comes from or what she wants from me but i would. give her. everything. Why are we not constantly talking about Miss Susan? I need daily Miss Susan updates!
4. Rita Sykes. While I often see love for Pixie’s in my inbox, and the smokin’ hot staff (and let’s be clear, i also think they’re hot and deserving of love), Rita Sykes is neglected. She’s got one of the best voices in all of Swynlake, and the Court of Miracles has been recently refurbished and transformed into an excellent place to go for a drink and a song without...well, writhing sweaty crowds. Def for the older crowd, but like a fine wine, Rita and the Court should be savoured.
5. Phillip Nam (Pin). Now, if you’re of a younger crowd, why obsess over Wilbur when you can go for a less dramatic, but fabulously wealthy and beautifully dressed alternative? Pin is worth ANY school crush and carries himself with a little more class than the rest of the popular crowd. Like an exotic parrot, he flies above it all.

Giants Outright Scott Kazmir
JUNE 11: Kazmir has cleared outright waivers, the Giants announced. It remains to be seen if he’ll accept an assignment to Triple-A Sacramento or elect free agency.
JUNE 5, 5:25 PM: Kazmir has officially been DFA’d by the Giants. Camilo Doval has been recalled to claim his roster spot, per Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com (via Twitter). Doval owns a 7.59 ERA/7.54 FIP in 13 appearances covering 10 2/3 innings on the year.
JUNE 5, 1:51 PM: The Giants have designated left-hander Scott Kazmir for assignment, The San Francisco Chronicle’s Susan Slusser reports. The move could end Kazmir’s comeback attempt after three appearances and seven total innings.
Kazmir last pitched in the majors with the Dodgers in 2016, and his career had seemingly drawn to a close before the southpaw announced a comeback attempt in early 2020. His efforts led to a minor league deal with San Francisco this past offseason, and Kazmir then found himself on a big league mound once more after the Giants selected his contract two weeks ago.
As one might expect, it wasn’t entirely smooth sailing for Kazmir after his long layoff, as he posted a 6.43 ERA over his seven innings and was tagged for three home runs. Kazmir started two of his three games, and only just returned to the Giants to start last night’s contest after spending a few days on the restricted list. Slusser reports that Kazmir stepped away from the team to mourn the death of his best friend, who passed away last Tuesday.
It’s possible another team might be intrigued by what they’ve seen in Kazmir and could make a waiver claim, though probably the likeliest outcome is that the veteran clears waivers. Assuming Kazmir is open to continuing his comeback attempt, he would likely be willing to accept an outright assignment to the minors, or the Giants could conceivably just release him if they feel he doesn’t offer much more to the team.
Logan Webb was placed back on the 10-day IL just two days ago with another shoulder issue, while Aaron Sanchez is also still sidelined recovering from biceps tightness. Sanchez had reportedly been throwing side sessions, however, so the Kazmir DFA could be a sign that the Giants are expecting Sanchez back relatively soon. San Francisco also has a chance to reset its rotation due to an off-day on Monday.

On the final podcast episode for Taskmaster season 11, Ed Gamble talked to Alex Horne about how people are excited that Victoria Coren Mitchell will be on season 12 (damn right, we are), though many people hoped she and David would be on a season together. Alex replied that they wouldn’t do that, as having two people who knew each other well before the show would mess up the dynamics. I completely agree with that; obviously you’ll get contestants who knew each other beforehand, but choosing contestants who’d already learned how to work closely with each other would destroy some of the magic of watching them figure out how to do that in team tasks.
Ed and Alex agreed that it would be unfair to have a David/Victoria pair against three contestants who were not closely connected to each other, and I think that’s very true. Then they said the only way to have David and Victoria on together in a way that made sense would be to do a version of Taskmaster in which all contestants entered as a pair. Ed and Alex both immediately agreed that that would be a bad idea, and while I realize they both know a lot more than I do about what will work well in a comedy show, I must respectfully disagree. I think a special version of Taskmaster like that would be awesome. And Ed should know that, because he was friends with Rose Matafeo before the show, and his rivalry with her in season 9 was one of my favourite storylines in all of Taskmaster.
I certainly don’t like the idea of a version of Taskmaster that’s all romantic couples. But I could really enjoy a season – or more realistically a one-off special like what we got on New Year in 2021 – with five pairs of people who play as a team and are already used to doing things together (because they’ve worked with each other before and/or just because they’re friends).
Here are some of my helpful suggestions about who could be cast. It includes a mix of people who both have and haven’t been on Taskmaster before. It also starts with two people I’d rather see David and Victoria paired with than each other; I very much like them both, and they seem like an absolutely wonderful couple (seriously, I think most romantic pairings are overrated, but these two seem painfully perfect together), but I think it would be more fun to watch them work with other people and against each other.
- Victoria Coren Mitchell and Claudia Winkleman
- David Mitchell and... I should say Lee Mack here, but I think if I could choose anyone I’d want to see him do Taskmaster with Robert Webb
- Ed Gamble and James Acaster
- Jon Richardson and Russell Howard
- Sandi Toksvig and Susan Calman
- Dara O’Briain and Ed Byrne
- Sara Pascoe and Cariad Lloyd
- Lee Mack and Sean Lock
- Noel Fielding and Julian Barrett
- This one’s a little left field, but Katherine Ryan and Jimmy Carr
- Richard Osman and Alexander Armstrong
- Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins
- Nish Kumar and Rachel Parris
- Joe Wilkinson and Susie Dent
- Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker (he could win with or without disability accommodation)
- Rosie Jones and Joe Lycett (see above)
- Armando Iannucci and Rebecca Front
- Richard Ayoade and John Oliver (it’s fine, he can fly in from the States, I’m sure he’s not doing anything more important)
- Simon Amstell and Russell Brand

“From the Great Depression of the 1930s to the COVID crisis, the Billy Rose Theatre Division perseveres and preserves the greatest treasures of theatrical history," said Doug Reside, curator of the Billy Rose Theatre Division. "As I look back on the last 90 years of our history, I'm struck by how our division has managed to document almost every aspect of the creative process and the people who bring theatre to life. I am so grateful for the opportunity to celebrate our first 90 years in such spectacular fashion, and to the theatre community for its support. As we plan for the next 90 years and beyond, my hope is that the collection continues to grow and flourish and reflect the diversity of voices that have shaped the theatre as we know it and are shaping its future.”
“The Billy Rose Theatre Division has served as the collective memory for our community by capturing the ephemeral nature of our unique art form. Until we can all experience the joy of live theatre again, we are thrilled to look back into the archives to highlight theatrical masterpieces from their vast collection,” added producers Julie Boardman and Nolan Doran. “Our hope is to raise funds to ensure the archives remain accessible to future theatre makers for generations to come.”
The virtual benefit is produced and conceived by Boardman and Doran and features direction by Steve Broadnax, Sammi Cannold, Nick Corley, Ty Defoe, Lorin Latarro, Mia Walker, and Jason Michael Webb, choreography by Ayodele Casel, Latarro, and Ray Mercer, with new music arranged by Rachel Dean and Annastasia Victory, arrangements and orchestrations by Brian Usifer, and casting by Peter Van Dam at Tara Rubin Casting.
Tickets are donate-what-you-can, with a recommendation of at least $19.31 in honor of the year the division was founded. Visit StillHereat90.com
