PS- The improv show last night was really a pleasure. Thanks to Rachel Hamilton and all my great classmates for making it special. As for my feelings about doing improv, it's a little weird. I'm very much about the "don't think" tennet of improv and so I feel really outside myself when I do it. It feels really different than doing something I've planned so I dunno ... I like it a lot as an exercise. It's like going to the gym for your comedy muscles.

Anyways I have a show for my improv class at the Magnet tonight. 7pm
I haven't done improv on a stage since 2003! WOooo that's like 4 years. I'm still not decided as to whether or not I like doing it, but my class was good and so was the teacher and the folks in it. So there's that.

And I thought about how addicted to dating I am. Here's where I admit that for the past couple of years I've pretty much been dating on average two guys at a time, usually at the max three and then I stop taking new prospects in any given rotation. Sometimes there's an empty period before a new group comes into the picture, and since I am a boycrazy man-addict these periods can be particularly painful. But in general it works so well. It helps to stop the possibility of dependence and later disappointment, something I come to expect at some point. And sometimes its downfall is pushing the good ones away so that they might not stifle my autonomy. I have many ambitions in life but love and making a family is not one of them. It's just something I know I want and probably need to happen, but I'm not willing to look for it or seek it. No my ambitions are a different kind of thing. The kind that make me fear influence and compromise with the will of another. And so I come to enjoy the moments I share with the people in my life for all their present tense glory, more than thinking about the future or what will come next, since I know any hopes I might have of predicting who will be there tomorrow can ultimately fall flat with no opportunity for redemption. Therefore I prefer avoidance of disappointment to avoidance of conflict. And furthermore, I prefer to party all the time.

And to those of you who may not realize this- it's insulting to me as a comedian to ask me to be your bikini girl as opposed to your comedian. (see more)
I love sex and enjoy talking about it and joking about it- but it's not about ME- it's about topical sexual situations that people can relate to. I don't care to be sexy or complimented in that way. I enjoy being in photos that are fun or interesting, but I could care less about being depicted as sexy to others. Sexyness is something that I only want to utilize in practical pursuits - meaning the only time I care to be percieved as sexy is when it's by the guy I am trying to do it with.
As for my opinion of bikini girls, we do need them and I love them. The world needs people who specialize in being hot and sexy. But that's what they are all about. These are people who want to be objects of desire. I've met many porn stars and the like and many of these people are fascinating cool individuals. I don't judge them for what they do or write them off- that's just not me. It's not what I find interesting for me to be doing. Like investment banking. I don't like the idea of being an investment banker, but if you want to go about banking investments, I'll surely support it.
It's a choice I made and I'm just going to have to move past it. What's more culturally relevant about me in the greater scheme of things will have more room to surface as I peel away the layers of who I am and who I am not. It's also time that I take responsibility for my part in this whole mess. So, Sexytime Comedy show will be put On Hiatus indefinitely at this time. It was great while it lasted and I had a great time working with my comedy partner, Brandy- but it's just not what I want to be working on right now.
I'm still someone who can talk about sexual topics when I think there's occasion to do so, but since I feel it's overshadowing the other aspects of my creative material, all of that is getting shelved via gingerly lubed fist onto the back burner of my throbbing loveparts.

Have you ever felt like less of a man? Me too. It's depressing.
now you've done it

By the way, have you seen the blog of Mr. Lucas Held? Or equally as important, his video, Gregory of Wachovia, which lovingly mocks the tards?
And have you seen the Librarianist? It's made by some very nice people.
After making at a graphic visualization of a brainstorming session, I shared it with my boss. He said "Is that in crayon?" I now have to make more spreadsheets and powerpoints at work. This is not my strength. And for the record it wasn't crayon, it was markers.

This was one of my favorites by far.
1) I learned to shoot a gun. Then I shot the gun. I did not suck at it! I hit the bullseye a lot. My friend was better at the long distance but I was better at the closer up. Either way both at close up and far away I was able to shoot the bullseye. With real bullets! We fired 5 magazines (10 bullets each). We shot rifles and I'd really like to shoot handguns but you need a license for that plus you have to spend like 300 bucks. Seems like the sort of thing I'd like to do.
2) Ate red meat.
3) Did, you know, other stuff.

At that cocacolazero nonsense last Friday, you appeared rather drinked, so you may not remember meeting me. Especially since by "meeting" I mean me laughing from uncontrollable joy for your hotshit dance moves. Then you called me "pretty lady" and your friends shouted your name at me.

i put you on my eyes today
then i wore tweed suit pants and pearls
i looked in the mirror in the corporate office bathroom
under that dispassionate light
and thought to myself
that looks kind of nice
maybe i should switch to brown eyeshadow
but i've been resistant to you for so long
youre the color that the boring ladies wear
the grownups and adults
i like putting my eyes all in black like someone took a crazy marker to them
or blue or green like i'm part muppet or space person
or all sparkles like a gay fish's caviar exploded on my face
i'm pretty sure gay caviar has glitter inside
i've got strong intuitive skills
these days i do yoga at the gym i belong to and go back to my manhattan apartment
i pay my bills and own a vacuum cleaner
i think i am an adult
i mean i've got so many meetings all the time day and night and then sometimes while i am sleeping i've got meetings with investors god i hate those they are so stupid but i know they are important
HEY brown eyeshadow i think you stopped listening
that is not cool
you better have a good excuse
maybe you do
maybe it's cause you have gout
well dont worry brown eyeshadow i will save you
here with this goutinol
you really should click the link
its safe for work and will heal your gout
you gotta read the whole thing though
it talks about stuff i can relate to
so you know
knowing that i think you can get to know me better
ok bye bye brown eyeshadow i'm sleepy

I found this picture with words on it and it began to tell me a story. It's a tale of acceptance, belonging, and love from the most unlikely places. I mean yes, it's obvious, this dog and this kitten come from different worlds entirely. But that doesn't mean that a common bond can't form between these two beings just trying to get by in this miserable world (heh heh I mean who doesn't want to kill themselves really? am I right?). The world around them just doesn't understand but they don't need to hide their bond. And here they are, embracing each other out in the open, flaunting it, giving us all the reality check we so desperately need with their feisty bit of sarcasm- "I'm sorry you think this dog poses a danger." But are they sorry really? I think not.
- This just seems like something great:
Butternut Squash Ravioli with Sage Brown Butter and Bittersweet Chocolate
I saw Little Children (which is a great movie) this weekend and I swear I almost busted a nut right in Patrick Wilson's face. This man is so incredibly hot it made me and my friend want to puke. It's not just his gorgeous face and perfect body, the man just has that lil somethin special. Ugh he reminded me of this dude I dated who had a freaking perfect body and knew exactly how to use it. I absolutely hate thinking about him because physically that man was gods gift to women and I had him for like a few months but it was nothing more than physical so it couldn't last. That's a funny struggle in the human experience- the experience of extreme pleasure is something that expires. All pleasures only last for the moment you experience them, and then you either basque in the afterglow, feel pain, emptiness or missing, or sometimes you have long lasting satisfaction. Satisfaction seems like the ultimate end goal, but there's also something depressing about satisfaction since it functions like a period at the end of a sentence. Satisfaction goes hand in hand with completion. When something is complete, building and development ceases. And that is one of the ways that pain and pleasure are codependant. The pain or lacking of pleasure is the motivation to achieve pleasure and the process or journey towards satisfaction are substantive. They are motivation. Satisfaction is usually temporary and fleeting. There is a strong relationship between the content and the lazy.
Anyway sometimes it's hard to wrap your head around the experience of something great. It's like "to an athlete dying young", why wither away post-excellence? What is there really after something extraordinary? Other extraordinary things I guess. I ask myself if I should accept it as fact that I probably already had the best sex of my life. Is this aging? To resign certain feats to your past rather than consider them in the future? Is this pessimism, or is it realism? I certainly still have great sex but I did experience what I considered to be ideal. That's something I take deep satisfaction in- knowing that I am experiencing an ideal outcome of a given situation. Those rare perfect days, perfect meals, perfect meetings. There is such variety in the human experience that at least we know there can always be more of something else.

PS- Prize goes to the person who guesses the NY Post headline- mine is "Anna Nicole Stiff". Your turn.
UPDATE: They actually did it. They were able to write an article with something to say about Anna Nicole Smith. Oh, and the Post headline disappointed. Something about murder. Murder is a funny word.
- Announcement: I am going to the shooting range on VDay this year- While the rest of you homos are eating cupcakes and hugging, I am going to be firing cold hard steel!
At a time when America is at war and blood is being shed on behalf of sinister world leaders, I can't think of a better thing to do than learn to shoot violence machines. I'll certainly have to blog ALL about the experience. Do check back for the report.
- Sexytime lineup announced! Check sexytimecomedy.com.
- I'm seeing Calexico at the Allen Room tonight.
- Because I watched that Web 2.0 video (2 posts down), I decided it was time for me to tag my posts. How do you feel about that?
- My mom is a business woman superstar. She works at a big fancy company as a Manager of corportate accounts (I think) and just when I thought my mom couldn't impress me more, she was awarded MVP (Most Valuable Player), Account Manager of the Year and other stuff for her department and some fancy prize. God it's so inspiring to have a mom kick so much ass all the time. More about my working mom.

I really like the recent news because it has me thinking about astronaut sex, a sex that I don't get a chance to think about all that often. Though I do think about Eros in Orbit an awful lot so I guess it's not tooo far off.
See that guy on the right in his space suit? Right now I can't help but think about him rubbing up against another suited person, their passions burning beneath their plastic prisonlike outfits. Oh the lust burning like gentle embers inside me. I should probably seek help. Are you there god? It's me, Fink.

Speaking of the superbowl, my funny and awesome pals made some fun fake Superbowl commercials related to a new TV show they created. The idea for their show is that these young guys created a site like facebook or myspace, and now they are super rich and fancy and they try and be all corportate but it's kind of a joke. I saw a bit of the show and it's fucking hilarious. These clips are funny and what I've seen of the show itself is even better. They can't put it on youtube yet but when they do I'll keep you posted.
These youtube videos are made by the production company- Chubby Skinny Kids Productions (Doug Mand, Adam Pally & Dan Gregor - who you may know from the NYC sketch group "Hammerkatz")- in conjunction with their sitcom pilot- "We Are Internet Millionaires". The main characters in the show become overnight millionaires, and are now in charge of a major corporation. The only problem is, they have no fuckin clue how to run a major corporation. The show was developed with ABC & Touchstone, and with Gabe Sachs & Jeff Judah (Freaks & Geeks, Just Shoot Me).
These are the dumbass commercials their fictional CEOs would have made for the Super Bowl.

Listen guys, I've pretty much got A LOT of useful links in here. I'm not trying to brag or be all cocky or anything, but, well, blam:
I am really diggin miss Esther Ku's song on Youtube.
And I love this Muse "Hysteria" music video which I didn't realize was on Youtube until just now. Justin Theroux sweaty body is made up of 100% I-wanna-bone-you juice. It takes like freakin strawberries.
I had a Nestle chocolate bar- I thought it would be like a Hershey's chocolate bar or a college boy- cheap but good. I was wrong. It sucks pretty badly. I do like crunch bars but this "milk chocolate bar" is no crunch bar by any means.
Saw Sarah Silverman perform last night. I do think she's a brilliant genius/hero- She was like the only hot woman doing standup in the late 90s (when the modern alternative brand of comedy started to dominate the scene) with real confidence, bravado, and talent. Now there's a lot more hot lady comedians but she was the first chick to take a stage and own it with the same cocky bravado as her male counterparts- and it's that kickass machismo that has influenced me since I was super young- something I first saw in Madonna, Kate Hepburn, Linda Hamilton in T2, and my mother. Sure we've got a lot of bikini babes with machine guns these days (Charlies Angels) but it often comes off campy and not believable. Naturally because it is all an act. Peeps like Sarah are 4 real.
Related: Sarah in Way of the Gun (the only good thing in that movie)
But the show wasn't so great. Sarah didn't do anything new, but I really enjoyed previews of the Sarah Silverman Program. That looks fantastic. The highlight of the show was Sarah's opening act, Tig Notaro, who did an amazing job and the crowd just loved it. I also saw Tig perform at Mo's on Monday night, where TJ Miller and Pete Holmes had their new show. She also made quite a few laughs come out of me.
Ooh speaking of Monday- I saw a young Wainwright girl, Lucy Roche, make music at the Living Room. Her voice was extremely lovely.
I am really into this artwork- the wallpapers make some fantastic computer desktopping.
