Picks and Pans Review: Near Perfect/perfect
On this live LP Mull—as he did as Barth Gimble on Fernwood 2-Night—speaks out on vital issues in a totally nonvital way. He praises fast food purveyors with the jingle Bun and Run ("Where the food speaks for itself"); ponders Marvin vs. Marvin legalities (his mother is suing, he says, because "we lived together for 18 years even though we weren't man and wife"), and takes a courageous ecological stand on America's diminishing timber resources ("I refuse to eat wood—God bless you, I hope you're with me on that"). There's also an interview with God (who wears a Bill Blass suit); an ode to a flatulent truck driver, and advice for the energy-conscious family on how to build a fire using household pets ("What is a dog or cat compared to one of our sequoias?"). It all adds up to what Mull calls, characteristically, "a borderline thrill."
