New Comedy Podcast For Your Listening Pleasure

So I've been working on a comedy podcast with some friends of mine. The first show we started thinking of we titled So There I Was. The show takes stories sent in by listeners and we then improvise that day in their life, thus making it much funnier. While recording that show we were having so much fun just joking with each other we decided to record that and named it The Extended Cut. Check out both of these shows at and let us know what you think.

Opening Weekend #40

This week Garrett and I discuss whether Street Fighter the movie has anything to do with the video game and whether the Jonas Brothers or Hanson would win in a fight. Check it out!

Famous Friends

So my evil twin close friend Greg was chatting with me one day and I mentioned how bored I was at work. He then sent me a word file that was a list of 99 internet videos/memes that everyone should have seen by now. "Boredom cured!" was his response. I thought it was great. The next day he created a website that lists these same items. It has since been mentioned by Funny or Die, Veronica Belmont, Time, and soon the Chicago Tribune. What a pimp.

Goodbye Old Friends

I just found out today that two of my family's pets were put down. One is the above Willow. My parents got him when I was just heading off to college so I only saw him on trips back home. He was a crazy, lovable dog that never wanted anything more than to be pet and played with. Although he licked you like crazy, you could never be mad at him.

The other I didn't have a photo of, but their cat Lucy also passed. She had to be 18 years old, so it wasn't so much a surprise but still difficult. She was a simple cat that would purr almost instantly.

I'll miss them both.

"Fix You" from Young @ Heart

Just watched this documentary and found this the most moving piece of the film and possibly one of my favorite scenes in a movie.

Facebook must think I need some money and that I believe those are their real hands.

My Top 49 Songs of 2008

So I know we're one month into 2009 already, but I wanted to wait until I held my annual End of the Year Power Hour Countdown before posting this. Why 49? Well I didn't want to repeat any artist twice and I'm not including any mash-ups, and I could only come up with 49.
