ZeFrank, Ernie Kovacs

My in-law’s attorney, who used to dress up as a witch to introduce the TV midnight movie in Midland TX, wrote her senior thesis on Ernie Kovacs, a comedian who pioneered in the new medium of television in the early 1950s.

I’m too damn intellectually lazy to do a similar treatment comparing Kovacs to ZeFrank, the polymath who pioneered in the new medium of video blogs in the mid-aughts, but I’m appearantly first person in all of googlespace to think of drawing the parallel, so now intellectual integrity demands that anyone else who thinks of writing an academic paper must cite me.

I note that appearantly Ze has some Ernie Kovacs DVDs in his amazon wish list.
