That live show sounds incredible. Any chance you guys are recording it/posting it on the site?
That really sounds like something we should do, huh? And something I should know?
I’m actually not sure if we’ll get a good recording of it or not, though I’m sure we’ll try. Very excited about the stuff we’ll be doing at the show. If we don’t end up putting the Comikaze show on the site, we’ll definitely film a lot or most of the sketches eventually. And we’ll be doing the show at NerdMelt on a still-to-be-determined date, as well as touring colleges with it. So if not Comikaze, we’ll hopefully get a live show up in a viewable fashion.
Or I’m completely wrong and we won’t even try to film it. That’s entirely possible, and it’s even more possible that no one would tell me. I still don’t technically work here:
WOW! Fox News, you’ve really outdone yourselves this time. Also, it’s nice to know that their only references to female comediennes are Mila Kunis (yup), Anna Ferris, some chick from VH1 and Olivia Munn. Get fucking real.
This is the grossest thing I’ve read in a long time. Cheers to you FOX News, you disgusting piles of dogshit!
“‘The new female comedian has to be the sexual aggressor, sexually provocative, dominant and successful,’ says entertainment expert Patrick Wanis.
Wanis also says funny women who aren’t all that sexy may struggle in the new comedy landscape.”
IMPORTANT JOURNALISM! I’M SO GLAD SOMEONE GOT PAID TO WRITE THESE WORDS DOWN!
First of all, “entertainment expert”? Come on, guy. Might as well major in Subjectivism and minor in Bullshit.
Anyway, this video has been making the rounds recently and it pertains to this article quite a bit. It’s for a movie called Miss Representation and I recommend everyone watch it. If that’s not your bag, I’ve heard good things about Keyboard Cat.
“What? Fuck you! Demand a hug and then call me a bitch? What kind of person does that? How do you think that’s an effective way to get a hug from someone? I WOULD have been willing to hug you. I might have even suggested it myself! But… ugh. Geez… You know what? Fuck YOU, bitch. Hear that, bitch? Yeah! YOU’RE the bitch. You’re a BITCH. Friendship: over. Me: outa here.”—An overly-sensitive guy who has never heard of Entourage and who’s about to storm out as he yells at his friend who just saw a couple episodes of Entourage and thinks it’s pretty good so far.
… that I’m thrilled The Simpsons will only go on for one more season at the most. It should have ended after Behind The Laughter, which made fun of what the show would eventually become anyway. Also, we find out that Springfield is in northern Kentucky. That episode aired in season 11, which happened to be the year Futurama started. If they cancelled The Simpsons then, Futurama probably wouldn’t have ever gotten cancelled four years later, and I wouldn’t actively avoid new episodes of The Simpsons. I haven’t watched a new episode in years, so maybe it’s not terriblepainful to watch the worst thing ever. The last time I checked, though, it was painful to watch. I started watching the show when I was five, the night it premiered in 1989. It was my favorite thing for the next ten years and it is without a doubt the reason I like jokes. Now I resent its existence, and I hate that I feel that way. The last 11 seasons of The Simpsons are the cartoon equivalent of the Star Wars prequels.
I think my point is that more wonderful things should end before they get terrible, and I really hope this post doesn’t turn out to be about the new Arrested Development show/movie.
From Reddit, where the comments are also worth reading:
Guys, listen. Here’s the deal.
I love you guys with every shred of my hard-left leaning heart. But I think you might be doing something wrong. Here is one thing that can help you.
Tomorrow, wear a polo and khakis
Seriously. polos and khakis. Every time you guys DO finally get some fucking press, it’s a scrawny dude with dreads in a ratty t-shirt. You’re going big here, dress it. Tomorrow, Polo shirt and Khakis.
Why? Because you need to get the right-leaning equivalent of me on your side. I’m 35 right now. I understand where the hippy thing comes from. I get it as well as a guy who’s 35 can. My Counterparts do not. They think you are scummy druggies on welfare and when they see on tv a bunch of people who they think are S.D’s on W, they root for the cops to hit you again.
Speaking of the cops, Who do you think they’ll mace first? SD’s on W, or a guy in khakis and a polo? Seriously, it’s fucking cop camouflage. And if they DO come for you. When people at home see PEOPLE THAT LOOK LIKE THEMgetting abused by police… That’s when shit changes.
Seeing protesters get beat up means nothing because protesters get beat up all the time. Therefore, don’t look like a protester! This connects you to the person watching and opens them to your side!
So for serious. Do it. You’re almost about to tip this thing over. Polos and khakis. Cop Camo + target audience = Shave, shower and polos and khakis.
TL;DR: Polo shirt and Khakis = dress code for nyc protests tomorrow.
Edit: Going to bed soon, one more thing before I turn it over to all of you.
Please spread this as much as you can. Professionalism will help push this thing over the edge. You have labor pushing you. National Media is starting to wake up to you. You’re almost there. Keep pushing.
Think: Business Casual Friday. Don’t play it up like the Billionaires for healthcare. You’re just a guy, going to work in this big office building here.
Even if you don’t think that you SHOULD be judged on appearances (which I do agree), You have to realize that you ARE. Fight the appearance fight another day. Polos and khakis.
You know why marching worked in the civil rights movement? Because of images like this one of a police officer taking an American flag away from a little boy.
Notice how the guy behind the cop has a horrified look on his face.
There’s also a really great picture of student protesters from the 60s standing quietly while a police officer goes down the line taking away their American Flags but I can’t find it now.
Point is, the more you look like a well groomed, law abiding, proud citizen of this country, the better the imagery plays on TV. These are the things you need to know about civil disobedience. At least you guys get that going to jail is a good thing.
