A Brilliant Idea
I’m going to make a movie all about the cultural stereotypes of right now (hipsters, smartphones, terrorism), wait 20 years to release it as a spoof of the 2010s, and watch the money just roll.
My Subconscious is Better at Improv than I am
I had two awesome, unplanned bits that happened in practice. Both monoscenes. First, I’m a preacher. I fake read a bible passage at the beginning of the scene. We later learn that one of the characters is only at church to plug his business. A bunch of insane stuff happens. Later, I fake another passage and vaguely repeat the story of Jesus overturning the money lenders tables in the...

A Website I Should Make
On the subway today, I had a crazy thought. I should go around interviewing couples I encounter on the subway and ask them how they met, what they like about each other and what their favorite memories are. Then I’d take their picture and put them online at some website, like SubwayCouples.com. And people would go and see all these nice, interesting (because every couple is interesting),...
Someone's Going to Name Their Kid After Me
I was on the subway last night, about 2:30 in the morning, coming back from Queens. Around Union Square, a man in his late 20’s gets on the train with his petite, asian, and severely drunk girlfriend. We head a few stops into Brooklyn and it’s clear he’s trying to get her ready to depart. He’s struggling to get her to her feet while carrying their bags, so I chime in,...

benzado: An excerpt: The male “Ab Shot” has the same reputation as the MySpace Shot—it’s an Internet cliché that supposedly everyone thinks is only for bozos. To wit: a journalist was visiting our office recently, and when we told her we were researching user photos, the first thing she said was “please tell me people hate it when guys show off their abs.” We hadn’t finished running the numbers...
On my inablity to write concisely about health...
jonthornton: The brewhaha over the Massachusetts Senate election has got me thinking about health care reform again. I have a blog now so I figure I should exercise my right to say something inflammatory on the internet. However, my little Tumblr post was turning into an Infinite Jest-style rant, so you’ll have to settle for this: (In the context of entitlements from the goverment:) Aside from...

Things I Did Today
Hid under my desk due to relentless fire from an automatic belt-loading nerf machine gun. Annoyed a celebrity. Today was a good day.

I want to work with Adobe Flash
vaov: But I can’t spend money in a workshop or anything… I am tight. This is half for fun half to do some experimental stuff. Anyone has a good tutorial they can recommend? Perhaps any tips or advice? http://www.w3schools.com/Flash/default.asp
Google, China and Milton Friedman
infynyxx: cdixon: “There is one and only one social responsibility of business—to use its resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition without deception or fraud.” - Milton Friedman, The Social Responsibility of Business is to Increase its Profits Google has...
The Second City Unscripted
I’m reading The Second City Unscripted, which is a book of interviews with various Second City people woven into a single narrative (much like the Live From New York book about SNL). It’s interesting and fascinating and amazing to think about all these huge names in comedy being in their early twenties hanging around a theatre doing comedy and it seems like an utterly amazing...
So I’m sketch 301 right now and it’s been awesome. I’m generating a ton of material and the class itself is fantastic. I’ve never laughed so hard in a sketch class before as reading some of my classmates stuff. It’s really pushing me to write what makes me laugh, not what I think other people will laugh at. I find that the stuff I was always good at (structure, tone)...

Adsit and Gausas
Every New York improviser should see this show. From what I hear, New York has evolved it’s own style of improv. It’s very fast, very aggressive, and heavily game driven. That’s not surprising; UCB curriculum (and a heavy desire to be funny) push NYC improvisers in that direction. It’s what we see day in and day out around New York. Christina Gausas and Scott Adsit are...

This was only the second time I’ve had to get permission to use a location. I’m generally pessimistic about my chances of clearing shoots with owners because they tend get all antsy about cameras, but...
