A couple of weeks ago filmmaker Matt Ott hit me up about being on his Comedians In Public series. He explained to me that I would have to perform in public (Bad), during the day (Worse), for people who weren’t paying attention (Worser). It sounded like a complete nightmare, so of course I agreed to do it. Then a day after I agreed to do it he dropped the bomb on me that the location he had chosen for my public performance was the Billy Graham Library (The Worst). Either Matt was not aware of my utter disdain for everything religious, or he did and he’s the biggest asshole in the world. Either way, I’m a man of my word and he’s an evil bastard. (more…)
Last year I finally made good on my mission to have at least one Facebook and Twitter update every day. I may have missed a handful of dates, but I made up for it eventually. I was planning on posting them all on this blog post, but I soon realized it would just take too long, so I only did January-March. Whether I ever post April-December remains to be seen. I intend to, but I’ve intended to do many things that never got done – like being successful. For now the following is a mixed compendium (I like that word) of my Facebook and Twitter updates from January 1 through March 31 2012. Some are funny, some aren’t, and many may not make any sense (You had to be there, man).
– New Year’s Day is like my day-after-Xmas. It’s when I usually return all the gifts I got the night before. Namely:Alcohol. Thru:My Butthole.
– Say what you will about deaf people…really, go ahead, they won’t hear you. (more…)

Back in the day, I used to have a Xanga site. For those unfamiliar, Xanga at the time was just a blog site. Think of MySpace without anything else except the blog. Eventually I migrated towards MySpace realizing the better potential for sexual prey.
While I used Xanga though, you had the option of subscribing to “Blogrings”. Blogrings were supposed to be groups you could join to connect with other people who shared a common interest, like say, Electrical Wiring. Well among the groups I joined was “**Christian Teens Rock**”. This led to me getting a message from a Xanga member saying the following:
“…I saw you’re part of the Christian Teens Rock blogring and thought that was cool! Its encouraging to see other believers witnessing and sharing their faith online. Do you go to church now?”
Now sure, this is a nice letter, and maybe I shouldn’t laugh. But I do. Because if this guy had just spent one fraction of a second to scan below **Christian Teens Rock** on my blogring list he may have figured out I wasn’t exactly witnessing as much as he assumed I was.
I guess my point is it may be a good idea to take half a second to care about what a person is about before you start pretending to care about what a person is about.

I was reading the Bible, as I do, and I came upon this passage. On Ezekiel 5:10, a pissed off Lord tells us,
“…in your midst fathers will eat their children, and children will eat their fathers. I will inflict punishment on you and will scatter all your survivors to the winds.”
So maybe Mike Tyson wasn’t so crazy after all. See it’s these wild violent books that give the kids the crazy ideas these days.
