One of the most peculiar things I’ve gotten paid to do 

I’ve done a LOT of random jobs in my life, but this was especially true when I first moved to NYC. I was constantly searching Craigslist’s for work and I had no contacts or money so you can imagine how creative I got with the job search. But this job was probably one of the…

A funny festival I went to this weekend

It was supposed to be about spring but I’m pretty sure everyone was there just to throw colored powder at each other.  ​​ That guy’s reason not to count to zero was weird. I also made some friends!  ​​

My show about Hot Jesus at the Holyland Amusement park

  (performed at  The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater-Sunset in February) Click here to see the performance. I had to cut about 5 minutes out of it, so I had to rush through or cut out some of my favorite stuff. But it’s still one of my favorite slideshows I do.  I’ve been told this is…

Goonies Forever

Remember the Fertelli’s restaurant where the entire movie supposedly happened? Well, brace yourselves for this one: the restaurant didn’t exist. It’s just a bunch of computer magic. This, of course, doesn’t stop the millions of Goonies fans from coming anyways. The only things you’ll find on this empty lawn now are church youth groups having…

Florida Is More Southern Than the South

The Taxidermy Strip Club

They got to ride a ferris wheel (it was actually spinning), chat with their friends on the phone, and ride horses (although this guy…

A Goddess Festival in Idaho

One day, Dora and I were driving through Boise, Idaho (on our way to the Potato Museum) when we came across these tents. Holy crap! It was a Goddess Festival! There were all these booths selling the coolest stuff like romance enhancement parties (for women only) crazy hair, face-painting, and SAND!!!! They also had a…

Baby Dolls and Coffins

The following story takes place in a hippy neighborhood I found in Eugene, Oregon called The Whit. I was walking around one day and literally stumbled upon this crazy place and these amazing people. Dora and I got invited to go to a party in Eugene, Oregon one day, so we got all dolled up…

Wax Museum Debauchery (part 2)

…..cont’d from yesterday WARNING: I strongly suggest not reading this post if you are my parents or offended easily We were at the Presidential Wax Museum and I was giving Dora the scoop on all the former presidents (that self guided tour device was crap anyways). I had just come to my favorite (and the…

We Became Astronauts!

Dora and I came across the Bicycle and Space Museum in Sparta, Wisconsin one day. Although we don’t have much in common, Dora and I both have been wanting to be astronauts since we were kids. I have at least 20 years more of wanting to be an astronaut, so I deserved it more than…
