PICTURES FROM CHRIS GETHARD’S RECORD RELEASE PARTY!

The Knitting Factory was packed! We got a surprise performance from Hannibal Buress, a re-debut from Joe Steinhardt, some “free vinyl giveaways,” and rockin’ performances from Shellshag, Mikey Erg, and Mal Blum! And best of all, Chris didn’t screw up the song at the end! Everything was beautiful!

I’m hoping that tonight’s success is a trend in things to come this spring. Good news is on the horizon. I can feel it. 

A post about people I appreciate on social media blogging platforms

I was sitting on the train this afternoon and I thought, "Man, I really do appreciate friends. Friends are pretty great." So I thought I’d write a post highlighting a few people who I’ve connected with here on this Tumblr website. It seems like a good idea right now.

Ta-da:

  • laughterkey: If you’re looking for Tumblr’s “Best Of The Best,” look no further than Laughterkey. She reblogs the funniest and most poignant posts going around Tumblr every day. I’m not just saying this because she sometimes reblogs my posts, which in turn get reblogged by Wil Wheaton. I’m saying this because it’s true. I have had the honor of meeting Laughterkey in person, and she is just as genuine and cool IRL as she is online. So if you’ve got a hankering for good reblogged and original content, check out Laughterkey’s blog. You won’t be disappointed.
  • lizdexia: This past week, I saw one of Liz’s old posts reblogged by another Tumblr friend of mine. It was a great post, but I loved how she had written something so cool that it had been passed around Tumblr by hundreds of people. I’ve never met Liz in person, but she’s got so much knowledge and spunk. I really respect her, and whenever I see her posts, I think: “Man, she deserves all of the good things in life.” (I hope that didn’t sound weird.)
  • gtpomellaIf you are a fan of The Chris Gethard Show, you’ve probably seen Geoff. But if you’ve ever hung out with the dude beyond the show, you should know that he’s one of the nicest and truest guys around. Every conversation that I’ve had with Geoff has been open and honest, and I can’t say that they’ve ever been awkward. Of course, maybe that’s because we cancel out each other’s awkward characteristics. But I can’t say that for sure. There’s no science to prove it. (Also, Geoff: I still have your zine. Please remind me to give it to you.)

So that’s it! There’s my post about a few Tumblr friends. If you’re not on this list, don’t worry. You will be, eventually! Be patient, my chicken wings. 

Anonymous asked:

Your porn + New Yorker idea may not exist yet (actually, by now it probably does), but there is a Tumblr called Suck My Dick, New Yorker that makes all the captions about sucking dick.

I didn’t know about this Tumblr! Let me mention it here so that more people can check it out: suckmydicknewyorker

While I love the idea of the New Yorker going full FUBAR and making their captions about sucking dick, the absurdity of seeing a political cartoon with a grossly obtuse comment about a porn video tickles me. The juxtaposition alone is enough to be entertaining.

Anyway, if anyone has already made a New Yorker comic with a porn comment for a caption, please submit it to me so that I can laugh about it at work tomorrow. Thank you. 

Things you shouldn’t do when writing anything

DO NOT:

  • Utilize violence, rape, or abuse to “stir up conversation” or “do it just for kicks”
  • Glorify violence, rape, abuse, or any form of oppression

There are other things that you shouldn’t do when writing anything, but these two things come to mind right now.

(Here’s looking at you, Game Of Thrones, as well as many other forms of visual and literary entertainment throughout history.)

You might be celebrating a holiday today. Easter? Weed Easter? Not Easter? I respect your religion.

Anyway, I’m working at the ABC Zine Library in the Lower East Side. I’m here every Sunday from 3 to 6 p.m.! There’s a lot of cool stuff here. Stop by sometime to do some browsing, or just to say hi!

Also, we take submissions! Send us your stuff and I will display it high upon our shelves!

I caught myself wondering how street vendors get the iPhone cases and hats that they sell. Do they buy them at a discounted price to make a profit, or do they get them for free from a supplier and then share their revenue?

Anyway, it’s a great day in New York.
