Dreyer’s English are the best! This Saturday on Whad’ya Know, the Podcast

April 1, 2019

 

Among other really important jobs at Random House (VP & executive managing editor and probably more)

Benjamin Dreyer is the Copy Chief. I believe this means he gets to edit the works of pretty much anybody on the list he

 

wants to, which has included Michael Chabon, Edmund Morris, Elizabeth Strout, E.L. Doctorow and Calvin Trillin, among

others.  Big job–this is like being able to tell King James he’s using the wrong meaning of Virgin, so change it.

 

His new one, Dreyer’s English, is a guide to usage and style not just for A-listers but for all of us daring to go beyond 140

characters in his or her or their writing. (Believe me, this will come up. Maybe even ter.

If we can believe this elegant voice on Audible is a guy from Queens, let’s listen to Benjamin Dreyer with evocative thoughts

on the evocative comma:

Rudy Guiliani the powerhouse who all but eliminated littering in Time Square is added to Trump legal tag team.

My man Trump is lawyering up. Can’t seem to keep em once they get indicted.

Usually it’s the old Archie Bunker search: the yellow pages under Lawyers, Jewish.

 

Speaking of whom, Lawyer/Bagman Michael Cohen will be defending himself, even though it will be all but impossible to get another home equity loan to pay off his own hookers.

Reverse mortgage maybe. Or if that Stormy Daniels ship comes in.

Could mine bitcoin using the White House computer banks.

I don’t know–not my problem. Got my own problems.

Born in Cream City: John Sieger (music) Michael Feldman (words)

October 6, 2017

John Sieger wasn’t actually born in Milwaukee, aka Cream City, but has now lived there (a few blocks from the Feldman duplex on 58th & Center) long enough to qualify as native. I, on the other hand, was, ask St. Joseph’s Hospital, so I have the right to say anything I want about Milwaukee in song or invective, whether Uptown (our neck of the woods, all alleys and car lots) Downtown, Pole Town (trust me, the preferred title) or the Industrial Valley. Cream, btw, as in cream-colored bricks, sourced from clay along the banks of the Menomonee, which went into everything from breweries to lighthouses, although they collected dirt (as Mom might have said) so this little tune could easily have gone “Born in Ash City, where I was collected.” And who wants to rise to the top of an ash heap?

From the folk-period of the 40 year Sieger-Feldman collab, or as we call it, SiegFeld Follies.

Johnny will be singin’ away at Whad’ya Know from A House of A Guy’s Own, Saturday, Oct 7, 10 am (the slot we still own).

Come on down to 1215 Drake St, Madison, or boot on up to facebook.com/whadyaknow.net/ & call-in for fabulous prizes.

Don’t get skimmed–rise to the top!
