More on Beldar knarfling the Garthok!

You've probably been a part of a conversation that started, more or less, as "If you could take one book with you for your year on a deserted island, what would it be?" It wouldn't be this book, for sure. However, I admit that the movie, Coneheads, could entertain me for a long time. This book is a product of the success of the Saturday Night Live skit, The Coneheads. It was written by comedian/writer Tom Davis (of Franken and Davis fame) and Dan Aykroyd, aka Beldar Conehead. A recent column in the New York Post indicated that Tom Davis confessed "...the origins [of Coneheads] included a drug trip he had where his forehead grew 10 inches, a vacation he and Dan Aykroyd took to the statues of Easter Island, the classic 'Childhood's End' by Arthur C. Clarke, and Michaels' directive to 'put it in the living room'." Tom Davis has just released his new book, 39 Years of Short-Term Memory Loss: The Early Days of SNL from Someone Who Was There. The premise of this book is that it is the recollections of ex-INS Commissioner Gorman Seedling in his conversations with Beldar Conehead as they traveled from the planet Remulak back to Earth. Seedling discusses Beldar's childhood, his first (!) experience knarfling the Garthok, his genetobonding with his genetomate, Prymaat, and additional features on Conehead customs, culture, physiology, and behavior. And if you plan to enjoy this book, then... kremnotts.
