Celebrity cameos on ‘Pete & Pete’

This is awesome and I admit I lifted it right off Idolator and their people found it on the much-more-up-my-alley Gaytriarchy, a blog whose master is very nearly a genius. He’s made a delightful video of all the indie rock and hipster celebrity cameos on Nickelodeon’s brilliant The Advenutires of Pete & Pete. Look for Iggy Pop, Juliana Hatfield (as the Lunch Lady, remember?), Ann Magnuson, Debbie Harry, Janeane Garofalo and Patty Hearst, among others.

Big beautiful bonus points for those of you who can spot the rest:

Remember the faux New Age book by Ben and Janeane?

Remember Feel This Book, the funny faux New Age book that Ben Stiller and Janeane Garofalo released in 1999?

I saw it recently in a used book store and chuckled to myself. It motivated me to search for and find my interview with both of them when they were promoting it. I think it was my first interview with a comedian – in this case, two at once. Later I would interview Margaret Cho, Kathy Griffin, Elvira Kurt, Lily Tomlin, and Sandra Bernhard.

I do love the funny folks. Comedians are my favorite people in the world. Who has done more for the planet, in your opinion, comedians or rock stars?

My answer is always Richard Pryor.
