Rodney Carrington

When: Sat., March 11, 7 p.m. 2017

Dear Rodney Carrington’s Penis: It’s been 18 years since your Longview-native owner/proprietor/operator first began corresponding with you in his song, “Letter to My Penis,” and in the time between, the two of you have had your (ahem) ups and downs. Or, at least, he has. Carrington included the letter on a platinum-selling greatest hits album, spent two seasons starring in the ABC sitcom Rodney, and appeared alongside singer Toby Keith in 2008’s Beer for My Horses. While you, well, “You used to watch me shave / now all you do is stare at the floor,” Carrington originally lamented on his tellingly titled 1998 debut, Hangin’ with Rodney. If the title track of 2000’s certified-gold follow-up Morning Wood is any indication, your relationship has improved significantly since Carrington first put paper to pen, then put the paper down his pants, but if that’s true, why haven’t we heard from you since your terse reply to Rodney all those years ago? Sigh. Nobody writes letters anymore.
