Hotitude and Hunkitude

Hotitude: is the angular distance in degrees north or south from general hotness
Hunkitude: is the angular distance in degrees east or west of the Prime Hunk Meridian.

Remember when Keifer Sutherland played "Ace", the handsome--but let's be honest, frightening--bully from Stand By Me?

To quote Dan Marino in Pet Detective: you're a weird guy Ace.

Are You Stretching Properly?

Things That Jiggle for $300 Alex

What is YOUR BELLY? From laughing during tonight's show.

Look, I don't know who's reading this blog...maybe the President, maybe the Queen of England, maybe the Pope. My stat-counter says an average of three people a day, so those are my best guesses.

But whoever sees this must know they have stumbled onto a very important piece of information. Tonight at 8:00PM I am returning my comedy show back to the good people of Brooklyn.

The Living Room Show. Maybe you've heard of it. You're thinking of Living Room the rock venue on the Lower East Side. I'm talking about the small coffee shop comedy show that has brought you NYC's best stand-up and sketch artists (including improv and musical comedy and ventriloquists) since June 9, 2006 for FREE. We have been there every 2nd and 4th Friday, (except during summer breaks when we work as carnies) and have never had to cancel a show yet.

Postmark Cafe (326 6th Street, 11215)
Keith Alberstadt
Luke Thayer
Sam Morril
Calise Hawkins
characters by Abbi Crutchfield
sketch by Matt McCarthy and Katina Corrao

There's always a familiar face, always a new face, and always a man without a face.

See you tonight!

So You Think You Can Pants

Here is something for you to read the next time you shop at the mall and then treat yourself to ice cream.

From an article in Esquire, Abram Sauer's Are Your Pants Lying To You? An Investigation:

This isn't the subjective business of mediums, larges and extra-larges — nor is it the murky business of women's sizes, what with its black-hole size zero. This is science, damnit. Numbers! Should inches be different than miles per hour? Do highway signs make us feel better by informing us that Chicago is but 45 miles away when it's really 72? Multiplication tables don't yield to make us feel better about badness at math; why should pants make us feel better about badness at health? Are we all so many emperors with no clothes?

Nice to know men and women share the struggle. Thanks to Chris over at Cynical-C for finding this.

If I Had Made Inspector Gadget, The Movie

I would have cast Ted Levine as Chief Quimby.
