Keith Kingbay: Don't Call Practice, Practice. →
keithkingbay: For anything you want to do with your life. I started playing hockey at 6 years old. Man was I awful. I was not a natural. “Well Keith, most people at 6 years old suck at things” Thanks asshole. I mean I never scored goals, never was selected to be on the “top teams” I was usually stuck playing…
I worked at McDonalds, and my first suggestion to Hannah would be this: get a...– James Franco’s take on Girls. I take back everything bad I ever had to say about him. He’s won me over, completely.
Joe Bastianich and The Gospel of Restaurant Man →
fek: I profiled Mario Batali’s partner and restauranteur Joe Bastianich for this week’s New York Observer. In a heated moment during the labor dispute, Mr. Bastianich told The Post he was done opening restaurants here. When asked if this was still the case, he turned to the publicist sitting with us: “Did I say that? Really?” he asked. She nodded. “Fuck,” he said. This profile is great....
But he also speaks of his videotapes as if they were old friends. “I love...– This dude just made me kind of want a VCR. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/29/nyregion/for-some-new-york-immigrants-vhs-is-king-for-movie-rentals.html?pagewanted=2&_r=3&hpw
If it's funny...
why do we have to ask if it’s funny? why do we have to ask if it’s “over the line”? why do we have to figure out what it’s “trying to say”? If it’s funny, it’s funny, and we laugh. If we have to stop and think about if it’s funny, it’s probably not.

Yo dawg, NBC heard you like singing competitions →
entertainmentweekly: So it put another singing competition on its schedule so you can sing while you compete. If there’s one thing TV has taught me, it’s that there are actually a lot of people who can sing well. And it’s not all that impressive, really.
As I restart Radio, I’m reminded of something Wilson once said about the voices...– The Beach Boys are back, a little, just in time for summer, anyway.
I'd Like to Spend The Afternoon With Lady Rosemary
I was brought up in a way which was rather Victorian, one was never late, never improperly dressed. So I had no sense of trepidation about being a Maid of Honour, no worry I might not get it right. Soul-searching and self-doubt is such a modern thing, as is casual dressing. Back then you couldn’t be seen in London without nylons, white gloves and a hat. After my balcony appearance, I went home...
Sarah moved to Omaha when we were in about the 3rd grade. She and I became fast friends, since we were both tomboys who liked to talk in funny voices and play video games. I used to go to her house after school almost every day. We’d walk home together while rapping memorized Salt N Pepa verses, then we’d play Sonic the Hedgehog, drink hot cocoa, and watch Beavis and Butthead. It was...

I'm going on a mission! Here is where I am going! →
fek: redneckzilla: So it finally happened. I finally am going to go out and put on my nametag and shave my mustache and tell people that they can be gay and God will still love them and that women are powerful like gods and that we’re all gonna be saved in the end because God loves us and provides for us so do you want to read a Book of Mormon? Don’t forget to mention that The Church of...
Woman in Comedy: A really scary thing happened to...
gabydunn: Part of me thinks it’s too soon to be writing about this because I don’t think I’ve completely processed how I feel, but I also think maybe this has happened to other women and I should talk about it in as raw a way as possible. I’m still really embarrassed and ashamed and garbled up inside, but maybe this can start a helpful discussion in terms of women and comedy. Last night, I was...

People are dying on Everest because the mountain is so crowded there are literally traffic jams of climbers. To me this means one thing: people need to come up with more original dreams in life.
Terrible Statistic of the Day: →
thepoliticalnotebook: The Justice Department statistics report that 1 in 3 Native American women have been raped or have experienced an attempted rape, a number more than twice the national average. Incidentally, House Republicans are against a bipartisan-supported provision in the Senate’s version of the Violence Against Women Act which would grant tribal courts greater authority to prosecute...
Learning About Video
How to light a subject on camera (click the image for the full explanation): I’m going to start doing videos this weekend for this very Tumblr, so get excited to see my face all the time talking at you. It will be a well-lit face. I also bought a little mic. So.

This is a good, albeit difficult, read for anyone who’s had to witness the slow decline of a beloved family memeber.
A Conversation With My Stomach
Stomach: Why are you eating?
Stomach: Because why?
Me: There's a cookie.
Me: We like cookies.
Stomach: Yes, we like cookies. But we also just ate a whole sandwich.
Me: But what about the cookie?
Stomach: Who cares about the cookie!?! You're FULL.
Me: BUT WE LIKE COOKIES.
Stomach: I'm going to start making you throw up blood again if you don't stop.
Me: Bring it.
Stomach: Oh yeah?
Stomach: *grumbles eerily*
Me: *takes another bite of cookie*
