Stream with the Fishes: The beautiful weirdness of Adult Swim’s FishCenter Live
The oddly addictive hit internet streaming show is an example of the absurdist and avant-garde programming the network creates to attract 18- to 34-year-olds, its core demographic, where that group is increasingly spending its time—logged on to watch news videos, professional videogamers streaming Fortnite battles, and Instagram stories.

“It feels like I was smuggling cocaine in a condom, and I swallowed it, and it exploded inside of me.” That’s Adult Swim show runner Casper Kelly delicately articulating the euphoric\nauseating experience of having a party joke that happened to make network president Mike Lazzo laugh morph into “Too Many Cooks”—an eleven-minute viral sensation with almost two million YouTube hits to date.
Video of the Day: Adult Swim’s “Too Many Cooks” is mad genius
If you haven’t yet caught Adult Swim’s viral video “Too Many Cooks” . . . Run! Seriously, shut down the computer, toss your phone in the trashcan, and get the hell off the grid. Because once this Williams Street send-up of corny opening credits from '70s, '80s, and early '90s TV shows crawls into your ear, there’s no tearing it out. Think Lamb Chop’s “Song that Doesn’t End,” only more demented…well…at least more overtly demented.

Chuck Leavell on Ray Charles, Gregg Allman and yes, Squidbillies!
Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell began his music career as a tagalong kid brother on his older sister’s date to a Ray Charles gig in Tuscaloosa in 1965. “I was 13 and my parents had something else going on that night,” Leavell recalled to Atlanta magazine this week from his 2500-acre tree farm in Macon. “So they said, ‘Why don’t you take Chuck with you?’ She graciously said yes. I was already playing music, learning piano and guitar. I was very interested in music. But I had never seen anything that powerful. I mean, Ray Charles is Ray Charles but then he had [David] Fathead Newman on sax, the Raelettes were singing. The band was just so tight. I walked away that night knowing exactly what I wanted to do with my life. If I could be in a band that was anything near that good and that powerful and that moving, that’s what I wanted to do. It was life changing.”
