Here is a video of river otters. The video was taken at the LA Zoo February, 2013.
I’ll let you guys in on a rough draft to the #Werepanther bit. It is definitely different from what I recorded. What I will video will be change again. This was written over a month ago. It’s rough but honest. I’m heading off to MD to meed up with my fellow Nerdist/NANO’s. We’ll be seeing a Chris Hardwick stand up show. I’m hoping to get a podcast out of him but I’m preparing myself for disappointment. So enjoy this peak into my psyche. (Me from the future of 5/24/13.)
So you want to know how I cam to be so devoted to Chris Hardwick? That’s not really a question. Are you sure you don’t want to know the story behind why I follow him around like a homeless puppy? Not really? Awwwww, come on. I promise it will be shorter than How Ted Mosby Met Mrs. Mosby! I’m pretty sure I will only take 4 maybe 5 seasons tops!

Rediscover the Divinyls
Today Christina “Chrissy” Amphlett passed away due to complications from breast cancer and MS. In a world of cookie cutter vocalists she was different. She was the lead singer of the Australian band the Divinyls. Austin Powers fans will recognize their hit song “I Touch Myself.” The single was off of their 1991 self-titled album. The whole album is a delight. The album is a wonderful combination of great vocals, driving guitar and outstanding lyrics. It’s a unique and incredible pop album. The songs are catchy and her voice is a fun to listen to. My favorite song on the album was the beautiful love song “I’m On Your Side.” I listened to this album endlessly during the early 1990’s.
If you are looking for something a bit different than the current pop fares give the Divnyls a listen. Some of their music can be found on services such as Rdio and Spotify. You can listen to samples every where multimedia is sold!
Check out a couple of the Divinyls’ earlier hits:

So here we are at the 5th part of a never ending tale (tail) of comedy. That was a well crafted sentence right there. Anyways, year after I die people will look at these gems and have no doubt why civilization died out. I’m really self deprecating today. Saying you are self deprecating is just an excuse to beat up on yourself. I really need to stop that. I hope you have been enjoying my attempts at making you laugh. At best I hope I make you think. If I have to tickle you into it then I will do that!
Here it is….all about death and Barry Manilow.

I have asked myself the reason for these little updates. I’m trying to find my own voice. If I can truly write what I’m really thinking and feeling then maybe one day I can help the characters in my stories do the same thing. I’m not sure this is the way to go about it. Oh yeah and I have delusions of being amusingly and hysterically funny. Clearly I miss the mark on so many levels.
This is a weird awkward comedy update. I wrote the ending after seeing a Bob Saget show. I am usually not raw at all. But it seems appropriate given the show I had lived though. Maybe that also misses the mark. I cannot be sure.
I always wonder if I’m smart enough or if my brain will ever work quickly enough to attempt stand up. These “thoughts’ arrive relatively quickly but I have the luxury of time to ruminate over them. It’s not my intention to insult or hurt anyone. This preamble is too long.
NEW: I’ve decided to release this on Pi day or…..Steak day. You’ll see why this is….appropriate if you read beyond the cut.
I took a break from re-writing my presentation for the Nerdist Way to bring you this revelation. Blame/credit goes to Roland Zeuge. I would direct you to his twitter feed but he rarely checks that.
I could talk about how the movie Singin’ in the Rain is beautifully shot or how intricate the dance numbers are. I could go and on about how the movie captured a turning point in movie history. It illustrates the transition between silent and talking pictures. We are experiencing a similar transformation in entertainment now. Like in ages past there are people who say these new technologies are a fad and won’t last. But we all know that industries who fail to respond to changes in technology and consumer tastes end up a historical foot note. The best way to entice you to view this film is to tell you why I love it. The thing in life that speaks to me the most is music. The songs are classic and each managed to playfully capture a universal truth about being human. The movie was created around the songs.
I’m looking for things to talk about in my podcast. So if you feel like it could you answer any of the following questions:
Since I don’t get many comments, I will use yours and give you credit. So be famous and be on MY podcast!! Or just have a place to write about Christmas.
So you might be wondering what the goal of these seed posts are? Or maybe you stumbled up on this article looking for something actually funny. I know the self deprecating thing is getting old and that is why I will ride that into the ground. This is a place where I do my incredibly hacky and awkward comedy! (Oh spell check wants to correct that as wacky. That’s adorable.)
