Dave Barry is a syndicated columnist whose humorous articles appear in hundreds of newspapers every week. When he's not writing his columns for the enjoyment of the world, he writes for the Miami Herald's Tropic Magazine. Dave has won a Pulitzer Prize for his humor columns (for several of his columns in the category of Distinguished Social Commentary in 1988) and is the lead guitarist in a rock band called the _Rock Bottom Remainders_. Plus, Dave is an all-around nice guy who tries to protect his readers from the dangers f the world around them, like exploding cows and trout falling from the ky. This newsgroup is *not* about David Barry, the auto writer for Vogue agazine. ----------- Where Can I Read Dave's Articles? ----------- Well, if you want to get your weekly dose of Dave in your local newspaper, check out the list at the end of the FAQ. It contains the names of hundreds of newspapers and magazines across the United States and around the world that carry Dave Barry's articles on a regular basis. For those of you who are too lazy to get up from your computers, keep reading... (DISCLAIMER: This is not an advertisement or endorsement of any service, newspaper, or magazine mentioned, but is intended merely as a response to one of the most frequently asked question in the newsgroup, alt.fan.dave_barry.) ------------ How Can I Get Dave's Columns Electronically? ------------ Dave Barry is a Professional Writer. His job is (I'm not making this up...) to sit around playing flight simulation games until a thought hits him (usually just before deadline), write it down, then send it in to his editor. His articles are not in the public domain. Remember, it is a violation of copyright laws to reproduce Dave's column, so don't even think about typing one in and posting it. Miami Herald ------------ You can now read Dave's weekly column through The Miami Herald's web site, HERALDLink. The address is http://www.herald.com/ . Go to the "Voices" section in the menu along the left and then click on Dave's smiling face. Denver Post ----------- The Denver Post's On-Line Newspaper at http://www.denverpost.com/ also has Dave's weekly column. Go to the "Empire Magazine" section and then click on "Dave Barry" along the right hand column. This one also includes the Jeff MacNelly cartoon. San Jose Mercury News --------------------- If you're a subscriber to the San Jose Mercury News's "Mercury Center Web" service, you can read Dave's latest column, plus browse through a library of his older columns on their WWW page. The Mercury News has also started a service called NewsHound, through which you can get Dave's column e-mailed to you (it's a bit expensive, but you can get other things in addition to Dave's column). For more information on the Mercury Center Web service, check out http://www.sjmercury.com/main.htm and select "About our Service". For information about the NewsHound service, check out http://www.sjmercury.com/hound.htm . Or, for information by phone about any San Jose Mercury News service, call 1-800-818-NEWS. ----------- Is there a Dave Barry WWW page? ----------- There are several pages to my knowledge * This FAQ is available at http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~msteele/dbarry/ * The Alternate FAQ (which explains some of the Dave Barry newsgroup's inside jokes for the newcomers) http://members.aol.com/darsys/altfaq.html * The Random House _Dave Barry In Cyberspace_ Page http://www.randomhouse.com/davebarry/ * The Rock Bottom Remainders Page http://www.dqydj.com/rbr.htm * Jon Grimes has a Dave Barry page at http://www.goodnet.com/~jgrimes/db.html * The Dave Barry for President page is at http://www.wam.umd.edu/~meercat/Dave_Barry_96.html There are also many web sites with articles and essays about Dave Barry and reviews of his books, listed under the "Articles About Dave" section below. ----------- Is there a mailing list version of this newsgroup? ----------- Nope. ----------- How can I Write to Dave? ----------- To write to Dave Barry (and get your very own postcard reply from "The Man" himself), write to: Dave Barry c/o Tropic Magazine Miami Herald 1 Herald Plaza Miami, FL 33132 ------------- Does Dave read this newsgroup? ------------- He used to, but no longer finds the time to keep up with all the messages. ------------- Can I send E-Mail to Dave? ------------- Yup. ------------- Well? Aren't you going to tell me his address? ------------- If you had millions of fans who all wanted to have frequent, personal, e-mail conversations with you, you'd probably feel flattered for the first 5 minutes, and then spend the rest of your life regretting that you told anyone your e-mail address. Dave doesn't want his address in the FAQ, for pretty much the above reason. Plus, he says he gets too much regular paper-mail to keep up with, let alone trying to manage fan e-mail too. Please do not write to me asking for Dave's address or mail me things to forward to Dave for you... such requests will be ignored. Print it out and mail it yourself (the exercise you'll get walking to the mailbox is good for you). ------------- Tell me all the juicy gossip about Dave! ------------- You can find this information in those magazines next to the checkout in the supermarket. Yeah, Dave divorced and remarried (to fellow writer Michelle "MSPtato" Kaufmann) in 1996. Let's get on with our lives. ------------- Is there a non-Internet Dave Barry Fan Club? ------------- Why, yes there is... The Dave Barry Fan Club puts out a newsletter three times a year entitled "We're Not Making This Up" which features info about Dave and personal letters from him (he fills out a questionairre for each issue). To recieve the newsletter (through regular mail, not e-mail) send $6 ($4.50 for members of Mensa) for a year (or $1 for a 1 issue sample) to: Rocky Lefarth PO Box 510523 St. Louis, MO 63151 This section used to say, "Contact Barbara Ploegstra (bploegst@smtpgwy.ssmhc.com) for more information," but I've been told that her e-mail address is no longer working. You can try sending her mail anyway if you like. ------------- What's this about a Dave Barry TV show? ------------- [Thanks to "Alert Viewers" ;-) Brett Doehr (doehr@den.mmc.com) and Laura Troise (troislaa@barnard.columbia.edu) for most of this information] The show is called "Dave's World", and it is on a local CBS affiliate near you at 8:00pm (7:00 Central & Mountain) Wednesday nights. The show is based on the books "Dave Barry Turns 40" and "Dave Barry's Greatest Hits". In the show, Dave has 2 kids and one dog (as opposed to 1 kid and 2 dogs in real life (Zippy got cut)) and Dave works for the _Miami_Record_Dispatch_ Sunday Magazine Section (instead of the _Miami_Herald_ "Tropic" Magazine). The real Dave Barry has appeared in one episode in the first season of the series, in which he played a guy who gets into a bidding war with the Barry's to purchase an air conditioner. The real Dave and the fake Dave (Harry Anderson) played/sang "Wild Thing" during the closing credits.

Wendel Eric (Mia's Boyfriend) -- Patrick Warburton Tommy Barry (Dave's older son) -- Zane Carney Willie Barry (Dave's younger son) -- Andrew Ducote Shel Baylor (Dave's Friend) -- Meshach Taylor Occasional Guests: Julie (Beth's Sister) -- Tammy Lauren Eric Jr. (Eric's dad) -- Eugene Roche And, so you know who to direct your complaints about the annoying laugh track to... Created By -- Fred Barron Production -- The Producers Entertainment Group Ltd., Livestock Productions, and Axelrod/Widdoes Productions, in association with CBS Productions Executive Producers -- Jonathon Axelrod, Tim O'Donnell, James Widdoes Produced By -- Michael Petok Creative Consultants -- Nick LeRose, Tom Reeder ------------- Recently, Dave had a "Worst Song" Contest. What did he pick as the worst Rock and Roll Song of All Time? ------------- "MacArthur Park", written by Jim Webb, performed by Richard Harris in 1968 and later in 1978 by Donna Summer. ------------- On the Topic of Bad Music, What's That Band that Dave's In? ------------- Dave is the lead guitarist for the rock band, The Rock Bottom Remainders. The group includes such popular writers as Dave Barry (lead guitar,vocals), Stephen King (rhythm guitar,vocals), Ridley Pearson (bass guitar), Amy Tan (vocals), Barbara Kingsolver (keyboards), Robert Fulghum (backup vocals), Roy Blount Jr. (backup vocals), Dave Marsh (backup vocals), Tad Bartimus (backups vocals), and organizer Kathi Goldmark (backup vocals). The group was put together by Goldmark at a writers convention in 1991. They named the band after the bookstore practice of selling last year's bestsellers at bargain rates. Music veteren Al Kooper is the band's musical director and plays keyboards and guitar with the band. The group went on its first tour in May, 1993, with the proceeds going to the Right to Rock Network and a variety of literacy and First Amendment organizations. Their motto is, "We play music as well as Metallica writes novels." A book about the Rock Bottom Remainders has been published, entitled "Mid-Life Confidential: The Rock Bottom Remainders Tour America with Three Chords and an Attitude" (see "Other Stuff" section under "What Books Has Dave Written" below for more info). Check out the Rock Bottom Remainders' web page at "http://www.dqydj.com/rbr.htm" for more detailed information. ------------- Will the Rock Bottom Remainders be playing in my town soon? ------------- Doubtful. Our music industry inside sources tell us that, much to the relief of music-lovers everywhere, the band has disbanded. ------------- What is Tropic Hunt? ------------- Tropic Hunt is a combination scavenger hunt and brain puzzle held in the Miami area which is hosted by the Miami Herald's Tropic Magazine. It will be held in November this year. Dave is one of the Hunt's creators and he helps organize it. Asides from that, it's hard to explain. More information on Tropic Hunt can be found on the American Treasure Hunt Society's web page at, http://www.treasurehunt.org/info/tropic.htm -------------- What Books Has Dave Written? -------------- [Thanks to "Alert Librarian" Barbara Huff-Duff of Caltech, Pasadena, CA, (huffduff@romeo.caltech.edu) for the complete list with more info than most people will ever need... :-) ] [Information is mostly from _Books in Print 1992/93_] Babies & Other Hazards of Sex; How to Make a Tiny Person in Only 9 Months, with Tools You Probably Have Around the Home. 90p. 1984.
