What's News?

Hello readers, hope you are all doing well. I've been pretty quiet on this blog lately so I thought now would be a good time to check in - at 10:10pm PST on July 12th. Yes, now is a great time. Crap, it is 10:11pm now...oh well, I shall still proceed....

Lately, I haven't been doing an extreme amount of comedy shows and I know there are some people that have been asking me when my next show is going to be so they can decline my facebook invite when I tell them about the show. Ok, not ALL of you do that. Some of you really do want to come see live comedy and I thank you for that.

So what have I been up to you ask? Well, as you all know, (unless you are new here... if that is case, hi Newbie!) I am a big baseball fan and lately I have been going to a lot more baseball games than I have been doing comedy shows. My uncle has season tickets for the Oakland A's this year so I'm going to more A's games this year and have also been to a lot of minor league games as well as I build my autograph collection.

Also, last month my roommates, Sean and Katie, got married. Sean asked me to be one of the best men for the wedding which took place in Nevada City. I forgot my paper which I had typed with what I wanted to say at the wedding but I was able to improvise and I think it still went okay. I was honored to be a part of the wedding and the whole wedding weekend was a lot of fun. I couldn't be happier for them both.

 Now, let me take a moment to look at some news around the world -

Hey, wanna go out on a coffee date?

So they  are making a Starbucks in a South Carolina funeral home? Well, isn't that lovely? What a perfect place to take that date that just makes you want to kill yourself.  Is there going to be a policy for this Starbucks location? Something like "Will not serve customers who do not have a loved one buried here." Is this location going to be listed on the Starbucks website?
I wonder who will be the first to catch themselves saying, "Five dollars for a Venti!?! Kill me now!"

 Justin Bieber got pulled over for speeding as he tried to escape the paparazzi. I'm not surprised. I always thought Bieber was a bit of a princess. (yeah, I just did a Princess Di joke, so what). I love how he says the cops weren't being nice about the whole thing and how he gets an attitude when the 9-1-1 operator isn't familiar with the car he is driving. I think I know why the cops were so "mean" to you, Bieber.... because they aren't 12 year old girls.  


So Viacom and DIRECTV had a bit of a disagreement and now DIRECTV is dropping 26 channels? Of course, customers are going to be pissed. I find it hysterical that you see Daniel Tosh before you hit play on the video above. Daniel Tosh is currently in the news about a "rape" joke that he says was taken out of context. Now Daniel Tosh's ratings get screwed by DIRECTV.  I find it fascinating that Dora the Explorer is at the end of this clip asking for help. Don't Mexicans have free cable?

Ok, those are just some current headlines... hopefully I can write up some more blogs like this in the future. Let me know if you would like that or not. Also, I DO have some comedy shows coming up so be sure to check out the "Shows" section of my website. I will be headlining on August 30th and recording my first comedy album at the Morgan Hill Playhouse, so you will not want to miss that. Unless you're a jerk.
