How do you behave at rock shows?

“So tell me again: what do I do with my hands?” – that’s me at every concert. I just got back from seeing Sleater-Kinney, the wife’s favorite band. A few observations:

– The women’s bathroom line at a Sleater-Kinney show? Hottest thing ever: 50 angular cool girls who all hate me.

– The band still rocks

– That is all.

Come to Game Night

Game Night Poster #1

I’m hosting a new-old show tomorrow. Kyle Ayers and Will Winner invited me to co-produce the super successful “Game Night” and I’m humbled that they recognized my giant talent. We have a hell of a line-up: Ben Kronberg, Alexis Guerreros, Joel Kim Booster and Amber Nelson. If you’re reading this, I would love you to come. We’re going to have a lot of fun. Here’s the Facebook link.

Bye, Jon

The greatest compliment to Jon Stewart isn’t the dismay of his fans, or the sadness of his employer. It’s the huge relief of venal politicians, who – though they would never admit it – will be glad to see the back of him.

It’s #NationalMakeAFriendDay. Go out an make a new pal. But don’t tell them why you’re doing it. You’ll sound very weird.

February 12th

It’s Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Celebrate the freedom he cherished by doing whatever you want today. Maybe not the theater, though.
