Meeting Beth Lapides

File under: Sites of Note

Today we ran into Beth Lapides on Twitter, who turns out to be a one-woman comedy industry coming straight from the heart of the Los Angeles spirituality scene. She honored us by proposing we trade links, and we "reciprocated" by sharing some of our standard pedantry about magic gurus and the delusion they employ. One of these days we'll find an off switch for that shit.

Beth has an awesome-looking website with a lot of stuff to check out, like this musing on what we suspect is L.A.'s rampant 2012ism:
The end of duality - is that's what's happening now?
Hard to understand from this duality filled place.
Or is it just cut backs, the end of manicures - two hands on two hands.
Slows down the hands on the face of the clock.
Stop touching yr face my facialist used to say.
Worry. Is. Duality.
But wait! The end of duality is a duality since it implies a begining and end.
Not a whole
We haven't quite decided if she's just a little bit too woo-woo or very slyly poking at the indulgences of Hollywoodified spirituality. Either way, it's a really nice site and worth a visit for a joke or two, at least until she decides to turn into a magic guru herself. ;)

Jody, is this gal single? You know I been tryin to set you up with a good lookin gal for years now! Betty and yo mamma're too old and ornery... My wife's sister was a thought but the woman is not only horse faced and 300 pounds but has the added drawback of bein from north Lousyanna, meanin she talks funny and oft times has a little flake of snuff on her upside lip... She don't look nearly as good as she imagines in those stretch pants and halter top. I'm embarassed to be seen with her in the Dime Box First Baptist Church!

Chuckji, while Beth would be quite a catch, obvs, it's Ellen that I'm keeping my eye on!

Intrestin... I'll ask Da Free Jack to pray on it!

But Chuckji !
I wish to know a bit more about your horse faced sisinlaw besides her 300 pounds. Can she fit into a GTX stationwagon without fuss? Or will she empty my olympic size pool when she get down in it?

Semblance, this gal in question can both fill and empty any size space into which the gal is packed, from her stretch pants to a swimmin pool, be it with her bulk or with her fume, the gal can naturally born get the job done!

Ellen, sence you are takin, do you have any sisters or girl friends for young Jody? The boy sure could use you're matrimoanial assist!

The trouble with smart people like Beth is that you actually have to pay attention to what they are saying.
Me thinks she is as deep as Chuck's sister in law's pants are wide.

We are in agreedment there, yomamma, but my wife's sister's pant's dimentions are just as deep as they are wide! Obliviously, Jody has done been payin good attention to Beth while keepin his eye on Ellen. If we all put our noggins together and meditate on the matter, we should be able to find a gal for Jody. Theres liable to be at least one will put up with what the boy has to offer! Take me for example, I may live in the mule barn with Da Free Jack, but my wife is never more or less than a hundred yards away!

Your wife can only move in a 200 yard diameter circle with you at the center? Sounds a tad restrictive, Chuck -- how'd you get her to agree to that?

Bruce if you lived in East Texas you would know how the ripe smell of a man can both attrack and repell a woman! In addition to the fume element, my wife's momma now lives in the same double wide with my momma, both our daddy's bein the grateful dead!
