To anyone who doesn’t respect Jim Carrey, remind them of: Dumb & Dumber, The Truman Show, Man On The Moon & Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. Then you tell them to fuck right off.
Sweet Christmas on a cracker … my friend Joel released his labor of love Star Wars fan film today. It is something to behold. Something absolutely insane. If any part of you is a Star Wars fan … please watch. Please share. Please spread this impressive piece.
sunday night was the oscars. i wanted gravity to win best picture. it didn’t. lots of people i know have started to turn on gravity. people are calling it heavy handed. many refuse to enjoy it because they don’t agree with the physics of the film. society has evolved into a snarky beast that simply can’t enjoy things anymore. to each their own i suppose. it’s a moot complaint anyway. the film did take home awards for several other categories. why do i care anyway. ever since they snubbed bill murray i shouldn’t. i couldn’t pay much attention to the festivities anyway. my time was occupied elsewhere.
on the same day. i started work as a host on a monthly variety show called “now we are friends” on the lower east side. the show is a regular haunt for my sketch comedy group kokomo. the show is regularly filled with some of the most talented people in the city and a mighty fine crowd. unlike most shows i am a part of, it neatly finds a way to make comedy of almost every type and music rather harmonious. singer songwriters and bands who perform there tend to be more organic. it’s kind of beautiful. who would think in the back of a bar off houston during the oscars, just after watching a improv set named after a movie about dinosaurs, they would find a full new orleans style jazz band.
the comedy that performs at the show is unique as well. well cultivated and booked. very specific sketch and improv acts. now i bring my stand up to the fray. i was happy. i was positive. i enjoyed the outcome. it’s nice to look forward to this every month.
… if it’s your last moments in space, in all reality … the cheesiest things you have ever thought might pour from you as well …
i love this city.
