I just in-the-style-of-Scott-Aukerman-and-PFT-on-Comedy-bang-bang-on-IFC said to my mom, “iiiit’s been a while since we’ve talked, how are you?

I’ve never been prouder of any singular conversation going so well.

Never pop this comedy bubble that I’m in OR I WILL END YOU.

that got aggressive.

Just some advice for when you walk into a Best Buy expecting to Buy the Best

…never go into a Best Buy and ask to see their Alexa digital cameras. They will look at you like you’re some kind of dumb idiot who doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Yes, I do know that they filmed “true works of art” like Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter on those cameras, but I also have an idea that’s just as good. Picture this: a woman on an airplane telling drastic lies to get more peanuts. Also, in this world, headphones and blankets don’t exist. (I know. Super good ideas are just inside of me alot.)

But yeah, even if you promise not to drop the camera, they still won’t show you them. Even if you slide the guy FIVE DOLLARS…. They’re keeping those babies in the back.

We can’t wait to see what they cooked up for Saturday! 

This is beautiful.

favorite part of the only AMA I’ve ever read in it’s entirety

Been reading Brothers Hines reddit AMA all throughout today. There was most definitely some great improv advice, but my favorite favorite FAVORITE part of the thing was also the dumbest part. I laughed for a solid 5 minutes at this:

warwickmumphrey: Heyo Will man y u been hidin? heard u made da trip out so I had Trey-P buy all kines a bottles a shit n but ened up havin to drink em ouselves - Trey-P in a coma now. Plus i got dem komodo’s chillin in my spot, when u think u can pick em up? Parently things change since our Myami dayz.

will hines: Hello Warwick. Yes, I’ve been busy. We gotta hang out. That’s my bad.

_________

And as for me? Well, now, I’ve got to go. I’m on my way to my bathroom mirror to do a solo performance piece based off of this exchange. Wish me luck. My toothbrush has been a nasty audience participant as of late. 

The Hemingway. My kind of encouragement.

You and maybe one other person comes to my apartment. A Saturday or Sunday morning. We’ll say once a month. We write for HOURS. (Yes it has to be hours. We commit to it.)

Celebrate with a bottle of whiskey on me that we absolutely must finish.* Dedicated to our hard work. After boozing for a bit we write one more thing and drink more, laugh at how dumb/ genius it is, order pizza and watch SNL re-runs?

Thoughts?

THIS SEEMS LIKE A SMART IDEA BUT I MEAN I DON’T KNOWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

* no presh to drink actually. More for me ;)

Dear UCBNY students,
I made you a thing.
I know it can be difficult to circle the UCB Training Center’s Open Registrations pagelooking for classes to open up, so I first asked for a new, updated RSS feed of open classes, which the UCB IT staff produced marvelously. Then, knowing most people don’t actually use RSS readers, I created a series of alerts using the incredibly useful IFTTT (If This, Then That - I thought it was unusually fitting). You will need to register for the site.
These alerts will fire when a new class is added, when few seats remain in a class, and every time someone withdraws prior to class’ start, sending you an email each time.
You’ll get a bunch of emails. (Delete the ones you don’t need.)
Keep in mind, the alerts can take up to 15 minutes to send, which means, if a class fills in those first 15 (or 1) minutes, IFTTT may never see it. I’m currently looking for the best way to notify you of course preview posts on the UCB Message Board to fill that gap, but come on, if you’re obsessed or desperate enough to use one of these, you’re already checking regularly.

It’s not perfect, but it should help you get those open seats you so desperately want.
Please let me know if anything can be improved.
