Addicted to MSA

NYT did a big ol' story about podcasting. They basically said Dan Klass of The Bitterest Pill was a drug addict. They didn't get the joke. Attention: You need do more than read the descriptions on iTunes and listen to one show before you write a story.

"The Bitterest Pill" is the podcast of Dan Klass, an intelligent, low-key (depressive?) actor and self-identified addict in Los Angeles; he opines about addiction and complains about his laptop and his health, as his baby cries in the background. Why is this endearing? It just is, like many forthright accounts of boomer loserdom. Mr. Klass also worries about podcasting going mainstream. "Do you really need to hear Dick and wacky Dale from KRAP in St. Louis?" he asked on a recent broadcast ...

Correction: July 23, 2005, Saturday:

A Critic's Notebook article in Weekend yesterday about podcasts referred incorrectly to Dan Klass, creator of "The Bitterest Pill." While he has indeed called himself an addict, he said that the description was intended as a humorous reference likening himself to fans of his podcast who call themselves addicts, and that he is not really an addict.

Another correction. The Rising Force wasn't mentioned! If you check out Dan's page, he did a whole show on it. With recordings of the phone calls he made to NYT. Aw yeah.

The same thing you do when he's 6 and wants to drive your car on the freeway, or play with the garbage disposal. SAY NO.
