You Like Cute Australian Boys Who Break World Records

I'm headed out of town to ring in 2009, but here's a little treat before I go.

We squeezed out a quick New Year's Mayne Street episode, with an appearance from Robbie Maddison. This guy breaks world records. NBD.

My Dog Is Kinda Famous



Dignan was invited to the premiere of Marley and Me. He walked the red carpet (not his first time), and watched the whole movie in the theatre (that was a first for him). He also got to meet a bunch of celebrity dogs, like Denis Leary's dog Daphne, and Beth Ostrosky Stern's dog, Bianca. They talked about eating, and peeing, and ya know, dog stuff.

I'm glad he brought me as his date.

I Love You, Man

I think we're all going to love this movie.

I read the script awhile back, and it's pretty great. Also, some of my very funny friends are in it...including Rob Huebel, Sarah Burns, Nick Kroll, and Seth Morris, to name a few.

Yay!

My Parents

True story.


MY MOM: Speaking of lesbians liking men, Justin Timberlake was on Ellen, and she was ga-ga over him..


MY DAD: Who's Justin Timberlake?

Outsourcing

My recent phone conversation with a Delta Airlines representative was frustrating me so much, that I actually had to say this line:

"Well, since I don't have a TIME MACHINE to do that, perhaps you could offer me a better solution."

Afterwards, my friend thought of an even better zinger:

"Well then, can you tell me if there are any available flights to Bombay? Because I'd like to come there and punch you in the face."

I Am a Published Photographer



A photo I took in Paris at the Puces de St-Ouen was included in the Schmap guide to Paris. No biggie.

Cage Free



Check out this package of dog treats. I think it's pretty rad that they even make dog food with a conscience. It's time we started paying attention to where our food comes from. Cage-free farms do not support the cruel and unhealthy practices that are seen in many of the farms where our food originates.

But, one thing did confuse me about this bag. "Veggie Life?" Maybe I skipped that day in kindergarden, but is chicken a vegetable?

Holiday Parties: When to Get a Cab

MY FRIEND: I'm so fucked up.

ME: Scale of 1 to 10.

MY FRIEND: I'm an 11 and a half....(long pause)......and three quarters.

ME: You mean 12 and a quarter?

BONUS FOOTAGE

More hilarious than those Fresh Prince of Bel Air outtakes...

Minnesota Muslim

I started out at the UCB Theatre back in 2000, or 2001. I don't even remember because it's been so long. But, I've seen about a billion shows over the years, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites.

It's just one guy - Charlie Sanders - telling TRUE but HILARIOUS stories about being raised as a white Muslim in Minnesota.

Charlie, Eugene Cordero, and Bobby Moynihan did my favorite sketch show ever at UCB - Buffoons. And, now, Charlie's doing this one man show that you will just love. It's hilarious and shocking and heartwarming. (I hate that word, but it is....)

Maybe I'm biased because Charlie's a friend (and we used to be on an improv team together), but I'm pretty sure this show is objectively awesome.

There's only one performance left - Friday, Dec 19th.

SEE IT.

Be Nice

Two weeks ago, my friend's mother passed away. He misses her.
He left me a message that said, "Every once in awhile, be nicer to your mother than you'd like to be."

That same week, I had a little health scare. It was the worse pain I've ever felt. I'm ok now, but it was frightening, distressing, and a gender-specific ailment that no man will ever have to feel.

Here's the deal: people go through a lot. But women go through even more. And all the while, we're expected to smile and look pretty. It's just not fair, and women aren't appreciated enough.

So, dudes...
Do something nice today for your mom,
Don't neglect your girlfriend,
Tell your sister you love her,
Remind your wife that she's beautiful, or
Give a woman your seat on the subway....because she worked just as hard as you, but she's wearing heels.

Girls, remember to support your fellow ladies.

Women put up with a lot of crap. It's time to appreciate it a little more.

Besides, if you tell us we're pretty, you might get a BJ tonight.

I Grew Up In A Really Pretty Place

Check this out. One of the NY Giants is farming in my hometown, Allamuchy, NJ!



In an unrelated story, when I was about fourteen, the farmer you see in the beginning once called the police when my friend Jackie and I were making noise outside of the local school in the middle of the night.

We had snuck out of a sleepover to meet up with some boys there.

Jackie, obviously, was a bad influence....and a whole lot of fun.

Yay, small towns!
