1. The return of Homestar Runner is happening and PEOPLE ARE EXCITED ABOUT IT.

That reminds me to remind you people that Dave Child and I recorded a fun little episode of our podcast, Friday Night Film School with co-creator of Homestar Runner and overall good dude Matt Chapman, who wanted nothing more than to talk about the Eddie Murphy movie, “The Golden Child.” In case you missed, HERE IT IZ.

I’ve been going back and forth on posting about a recent solo comedy tour I decided to take on a whim. Mostly because Tumblr seems to have evolved to the detached briefness of Twitter or Instagram or SnapChat or whatever else the gods have chucked at us. And partially because I feel timid and unworthy to do so.

But regardless of my neurotic hang-ups, I’m here. Sitting in the Portland airport for an ungodly amount of time, measuring my excitement by how fast “Game of Thrones” downloads illegally and half-listening to a very heated argument by a British mother and her 2-year old. I have just finished a full week of a comedy tour, and I couldn’t be more exhausted.
Last night for Part Two: The Sequel Show! the show I co-produce with Tony Sam at Meltdown Comics, I presented my sequel for “Les Miserables II: Vengeance is Miserable…s”. It’s essentially a revenge flick where Fantine’s ghost kicks some Lady Factory worker ass “Kill Bill”-style.
