free fall

Whew! What a fantastic day. JUST put a whole bucnh of money into Wachovia Bank - that's a big one, nothing's gonna happen to that giant - and I updated my stock portfolio, buying up risky investments because Congress is totally gonna pass a huge bailout bill and ...


Say again?

They did what now?

Really. Huh.

But the stock market-


Biggest point drop...EVER?


Well, at least nothing happened to Wach-





...when do the locusts and pillars of smoke get here?

Lack of wisdom

On Monday, I had a wisdom tooth pulled.

It's the first time I've had a wisdom tooth yanked. I don't know that I feel any particular loss of wisdom, but then again, as my life decisions have proven, I don't think I had very much wisdom to lose in the first place.

The appointment was set up through the Army; they hooked me up with a cool dentist on the upper East Side. After informing me that it would take about 15 minutes to rip my tooth out, I was given the option of being knocked out. An option I happily accepted.

It's a weird sensation. You're sitting in the chair, they stick you with a needle, someone says, "Just relax." Everything gets fuzzy and then a nurse is walking you down a hallway to a room where you sleep off the happy juice. And you're biting down on cotton gauze where your wisdom tooth used to be. Odd.

It's like being a private dick in a film noir where some dame just slipped you a mickey.

For me, I didn't really think about the terrible possibilities of all the horrific things that could happen to me while unconscious until it was far, far too late.

My serious lack of wisdom definitely kicked in right as I went under, causing me a slight flurry of panic just as I passed out. Suddenly, every horror movie I had ever seen, every urban legend I had ever heard, every whacked out tale of crazed, maniacal, sado-masochistic dentists flooded my brain.

You go in to get a tooth pulled and you wake up as a head in a jar, I think. This is how it happens!

I calm myself down. I know I'm being irrational. I'm just getting a tooth pulled. This dentist is totally chill and cool. No one is harvesting my organs.

The room goes blurry. "Just relax," he says, shoving cotton into my mouth, in a voice that sounds a million miles away.

Everything is going black.

Oh my God, I suddenly realize too late, slipping into dark oblivion. No one knows I'm here...!

Iraq-enactments bonus clips!

Because you can never not really serve enough.

We decided to take an in-depth look at those individuals who fervently support the war...they just don't have the time to actually go and serve themselves. So, they give back in their own way.

I helped write this one up and I shot a bunch of it.

Here's a Shoot the Messenger video I worked on, starring Sarah Silverman.

FANTASTIC old timey radio

Hey, True Believers!

Wanna hear Stan Lee narrate original issues of the Fantastic Four in an early 70's attempt to revive serialized radio drama?

Of course you do.

Fret not, faithful followers of the Fantastic Four! Here are 10 episodes! Online! Thanks, INTERNET!


It's pretty awesome. AND, as an added bonus...

a young Bill Murray plays Johnny Storm, the Human Torch! Yes. THAT Bill Murray.

WUW - live, at the RNC, 3rd show

This one was probably my favorite one, both from a writing and performing standpoint.

Added bonus; our street team coverage of the convention.

Look for me (or rather, my feet) as TWO of the different reporters on our Mensroom Watch.

WUW - live, at the RNC

More video coverage from the RNC.

Apparently, the crowd loved my first joke so much, it kind threw off the rest of the piece.

That's a good problem to have, though.

For the record, the "Science Museum" joke was the first joke I wrote with Lizz when we got there.
