I just found this clip of my friend Natasha Muse interviewing Michel Gondry. Fascinating look into his process in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Tonight I performed for the first time at the San Francisco Punchline, the main club in San Francisco.

It was a fun night, and my set was “alright”. I was terribly nervous and forgot the end of a whole joke (which one generally calls the “punchline”!). People whose performances I love said I had a good set. It felt nice.

I got home and edited my set down to just the parts that won’t be the same next time I perform: namely, Rob Cantrell’s introduction, the audience’s responses, and my moments of awkward “uhm”s and “uuh”s, and that one weird sound that I made about halfway through.

The overall effect is that it sounds like my man parts are hanging out and I am befuddled as to how to remedy the situation, and that sounds like a pretty good metaphor for trying to make people laugh.

In other words: This is my journal of emotional hygiene.

[Even Cairns’ blog posts are abstract, meta, and brilliant. Congrats on the Punchline Showcase appearance David.]

YAY YAY YAY YAY!!! My February video is up at last! And you should watch it cause it’s like being in a room with Elton John himself (wokka wokka).

This was actually super challenging on multiple levels as is the endeavor to make one video per month in 2011 as a whole. But hey, a million inconsistencies, character breaking, and new challenges with audio later and i STILL love the shit out of this sketch/video. And more importantly and AMAZINGLY, i still love Elton John.

Thank you everyone who helped bring it all together. Especially TMAZ. You are all so great. Yay!!!

I look forward to the March video which will be crazyyyyy simpler because I’ll be borrowing from the one and only Lil’ B.
