A truly WTF? moment courtesy of Heeb magazine’s “Germany” issue… Roseanne dressed as Hitler. Why not?
I once met Roseanne and she was as cool as fuck. I met her at a function at the Tribecca Film Festival in 2000 when she gave me an award. There is actually a photograph that was taken that morning of Roseanne, myself and Gary Coleman at the ceremony. Sadly I do not have a copy of it.
Afterward we discussed our respective “collections” and she nearly trumped mine with the first thing she mentioned: She told me that she owned the entire archive of Lenny Bruce materials that had belonged to the late attorney Martin Garbus. I was pretty impressed!
She also told me about her interest in medieval alchemy—it was clear from her conversation that she knew what she was talking about—and she asked me if I could hook her up with some herb while she was in New York. So I called the weed delivery service I used at the time on her behalf (I also once hooked up Sid Caesar, but that’s another story).
I am pretty sure sure I smoked a bowl with her standing on Hudson Street that day, but for obvious reasons, my memory isn’t what it used to be…
