The Walking Dead has been ignoring the comics for years, so why cry now that Rick's hooking up with Michonne instead of Andrea? Really, does anybody miss Andrea? My case for sticking with the show is here.
As much as I love skiing, ski jumping freaks me out. Peering down from the top of Lake Placid's Olympic jump in summer was terrifying so I can't even imagine going down that thing. All the more credit, then, to Michael "Eddie the Eagle" Edwards for competing at the Calgary Winter Games -- even if he finished last. Our chat is here.

This week's picks are both at the Signature Center, and they couldn't be any more different: the New Group's revival of Sam Shepard's Buried Child and an encore presentation of Bill Irwin and David Shiner's vaudevillian clown show Old Hats. More here.

As a punctual person living with someone blessed with a rubbery conception of time, I really felt for Mike Birbiglia's riff on the difference between people who are on time and people who are late. He belongs to the first category, and about the second, he has this to say: "We hate you." Gently, of course -- this is Mike Birbiglia, not Triumph. Anyway, his new solo, Thank God for Jokes, is one of my picks this week. Click here to discover my skips.
I looked him up, and the result is a half empty/half full type thing.
