My dear friends Party Central USA were nice enough to ask me to participate in their newest video, and how could I say no? Check it out, and check them out as well at their new monthly show, SKETCHUBATOR, or online here. This was edited and shot by the fun-tastic Oren Brimer, by the by.
If you missed out on Oren Brimer's pool party this weekend, then console yourself with the knowledge that you missed me clad only in a RIDICULOUS bathing suit meant for a flat-chested Polish runway model, splashing around like a marmoset hopped up on Red Dye #5 gleaned from the Capri Sun pouch of a kid who hurled it off the Safari Rail ride into my greedy little paws.
Shame on you.
BUT! Here's your chance to re-live the glory days! Simply imbibe an entire case of Boone's Farm Pina Colada Delight Wine (pref. room temperature), then watch the above clip. It's sure to bring a tear to the eye of any who were forced to be groped, slobbered on, or who participated in a chicken fight they wanted no part of but were recruited into by the force of my muscular legs wrapped firmly about their cheeks (Eric Andre, I'm talking to you).
Hailed a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek and celebrated by the likes of This American Life, The Today Show, The Onion AV Club, Esquire, Entertainment Weekly, Daily Candy, and more, Mortified is a comic excavation of teen angst artifacts (journals, letters, poems, lyrics, home movies, stories, and more) as shared by their original authors before total strangers. As the largest and longest-running project of its kind, our grassroots comedy collective has spent years sifting through hundreds of otherwise forgotten notebooks on a mission to celebrate the extraordinary lives of ordinary people.

There was a pool party. There was a hungover brunch. And there was magic in all the land!!!
Also the Comedy Central pilot shoot went great, thanks. My cat finally came out from under the bed after cowering there for the full 12 hours that the shoot took. I am still cowering, however. I frighten easily, what can I say? That's all for now, because I am a lazy turd.

Watched a great "love note to New York" movie tonight- one of my fave types of films. It was called After Hours, and Martin Scorsese directed it. I remember so clearly when this came out in theaters, I was too little to go and it was considered very naughty. "Racy" is the word, I guess.
Check it out sometime. You may really love it, too. Plus, Teri Garr AND Catherine O' Hara are in it. Two comedy heroines of mine, in the same film, delightful. Griffin Dunne is very hot, BTW.

Enjoy this first picture, because I said so and that is why.
Now in this later series we see 3 photos, so let me explain. Carolyn requested we send a photo for tonight's Chicks & Giggles appearance. Sara was in Japan, but managed to dutifully dredge up this dual flag shot from The Kissing Booth circa July 2006. I, however, missed this and in a flight of fancy, selected the all green winner shown below it from the March 2007 show, (one of our last at the D-Bag Lounge, I might add). Sara politely rebuked me via email to Carolyn saying she'd prefer to use the prior shot as it showed a little "less crotch" (in hindsight and upon reflection, she has a valid point). I decided I didn't like the tone of that email and made a new picture to share. And that is where the last one comes in. Let it never be said I am not a petty horrid troll who does not deserve friendship but somehow, due to deal with Old Scratch Satan himself, manages to purloin it ever still.
Anyways, come see that dynamic of spite in full effect tonight! At the FREE Chicks & Giggles show at Mo Pitkins! 8 PM! Yay!

As you are all aware, I, like Motley Crue before me sang, am too fast for love. But I think about it a lot and sometimes, I think it may actually be a real thing. Then I think about some of the people I've dated or stories I've heard from close friends. And I say "Naaaaaaah" and have another Maker's rocks.
I decided, therefore, when faced with what had to have been the most DEADEST of DEAD shifts a few days ago, to make the following proclamation:
When people start dating one another they should attach to this ritual a title. My pick: LET THE RUINING BEGIN!
In other news I have to clean my apartment in order for a pilot to be filmed there (a real one, not some rinky dink nonsense). I had a karaoke marathon at Planet Rose that ended with at least 3 drunken spills to the floor. And I went on a nice walk in Soho and saw some great Fairey stencil postings which I snapped for you to enjoy. And I'm reading the Aline Komsinsky-Crumb graphic bio Need More Love right now and it is so amazing. And I am so glad the summer is over, as this is my favorite time of year here in Brooklyn. I'm already getting excited about planning my annual X-mas Party, which shall be insane and will involve mistletoe and punch and mirth and pigs-in-a-blanket. Glee!!!
