"One of my favorite artists is Van Morrison. Few people know that “Brown Eyed Girl” was about a girl with green eyes and two buttholes."

Favorite Things of Last Night: Stork Club (12/26/2013)

[It’s a Boxing Day Miracle! We went Boston-Style (so I didn’t have to stand up more than a couple of times), I saw a flippin’ magic show from a fake grandmother and I got to sing the Mortal Kombat song. Can’t wait for 2014.]


"I’m one of the few black engineers besides Richard Pryor, AND HE WAS THE BEST! He built a computer that almost killed Superman!"

“‘Toys’R Us’, have you seen that sign? It looks a child designed it. [No crowd response] Fuck you guys. I’m going to make a grammatically correct toy story called “We’re Toys” and it will only be for the super wealthy.”

– Land Smith @ Amnesia [Paraphrase]
