WKND FEEDBACK

Gravity and anti-gravity

October 28, 2004

I was so disappointed in Randy Lewis' pedestrian piece, "Exploring New Frontiers" [Oct. 21].

My gosh, he missed what makes "Has Been" great: humor!

Folds and Shatner have created a masterpiece that creatively balances the gravity of real life and its absurdity. What about the comic "I Can't Get Behind That," in which Shatner and Henry Rollins trade heated gripes about leaf blowers and Valley girl talk to a wonderfully orchestrated Folds cacophony? Even if Shatner and Folds didn't intend this result (which I can't believe), it's obvious.
