I’m a horror/science fiction/fantasy writer. For-reals. I’m totes serious.
Anyway, Maria Bamford is wonderful. She’s hilarious. She’s an old soul. She adopts alpacas from alpaca farms and glues yarn-hair to them because they’re cold from being sheared too much.
Not sure that last thing is true, but if it is, I bet her weird alpaca advocacy is done without a hint of pretension. She’s a delight. Bless her and her multi-colored enclave of rescued alpacas.
Mostly, I love her stand up and appearances on some of my favorite podcasts (chief among them, Never Not Funny with Jimmy Pardo).
Anyway, the big news is that she has a new special coming out November 28th. It’s going to be a self-released thing ala Louis C. K.
