Whether You Like Potty Humor of Not You Will Most Definitely Love What Seth Rogen is Working on Now

Seth Rogen is generally one of those comedians that you may not want your family to know that you think is funny. If they knew that you thought he is/was funny they might think that you didn’t actually mature quite like everyone who loves you had been hoping you would… Well, you might want to have them watch this video…

“Honest Company Slogans” – What They Meant To Say…

Just scrolling through the internet today I noticed a link that said “Honest Company Slogans”. Obviously I had to click it…

“Oh, the places we’ll go!” – Burning Man Festival

20130830-152637.jpg

I have heard about the Burning Man festival for a long time. My cousin is actually there right now, and I’m very jealous. I don’t attend a lot of live music shows, but I love big crowds and I love music. This video is a couple of years old, but it’s still one of my all-time favorites. I hope you enjoy it too πŸ™‚

Why Dennis Rodman Went to North Korea – VICE on HBO: Episode 10 “The Hermit Kingdom”

20130826-235012.jpg

This is one of the wilder experiements in journalism I would imagine that there has really ever been… I mean, North Korea being as cartoonishly backwards as it is being mixed with Dennis Rodman and the Harlem Globetrotters for a friendly game of pick up basketball just sounds like something from the show South Park.

I’m very glad that Vice has been putting their HBO episodes on YouTube, as they are all very informative and important, and news like that should be shared with as many people as possible. If you follow this blog you are already aware that I love Vice, and I recommend that you love it too πŸ™‚

Enjoy the video, considering it’s free it is probably the best bang for your buck you’re going to get anytime soon for news or entertainment.

(Video Description on YouTube):
Chances are, the first time you heard of our HBO show was when news outlets around the world reported that we took Bad-as-I-Wanna-Be NBA Hall-of-Famer Dennis Rodman to North Korea, along with members of the legendary Harlem Globetrotters, to take on the Hermit Kingdom’s national team in a friendly, if entirely absurd, experiment in basketball diplomacy. As you probably know, the enigmatic young ruler of the country, Kim Jong Un, showed up to the game, making us the first American news organization to meet him. It was pretty much the most thrilling thing that could have happened, and when pictures were beamed back to Brooklyn that day, the poured-concrete floors of our offices rippled in cracks and dents as our jaws collectively hit the floor.

Already seen this episode, have you? But have you seen the season one outtakes? Watch them on VICE here: http://www.vice.com/vice-on-hbo-outtakes

The White House Correspondents Dinner (2013) – Conan O’Brien and “House of Cards”

Oh man… So this is a fun post for me. The event that I would most like to attend each year is the White House Correspondence Dinner (followed by the Oscars), where the worlds of politics and comedy collide. Also, this year I happened to be watching the dinner whilst sitting about 2 miles away trying to think of ways to participate… I am sorry to report that I didn’t get to be a part of it in any way, but I did get to tweet a little bit with a wonderful comedian Ophira Eisenberg – whose book I’m reading right now “Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy” (and yes it’s a bit risquΓ© , but it’s honest and for that I treasure it). Also Ophira’s trivia show on NPR “Ask Me Another” is a real treat for a nerd who loves podcasts. Oh yeah, back to the correspondence dinner. This dinner is intended to honor the press, while also roasting them a little bit too. They used to be rather mild roasts, but they have gotten more and more shall I say “bold” each year. And ever since Stephen Colbert so controversially roasted President George W. Bush to his face the whole game has changed.

While I think that President George W. Bush was actually pretty good at events like this, President Obama is just better, in my opinion. He knows not to laugh when the crowd is, and then he is the first to laugh when they don’t laugh, or show some type of hesitancy. I’m sure he was trained to do this, but controlling when he laughs like that isn’t easy I’m sure, but it displays a cool confidence and that in comedy can be powerful stuff… I’d love to talk about which jokes were my favorite, but this is one of those things that I’d rather just let you dive into on your own, it’s that fun.

I hope you enjoy it.

P.S. if you don’t watch “House of Cards” this first video probably won’t be quite so funny to you, but I recommend the show (and it’s a Netflix original, so you won’t find it on your cable channels).

Great Irish Sayings

Last night in honor of “St. Paddy’s Day” Β I went to a great Celtic concert at The Blue Door in OKC, so I was too busy to post these sayings. But I thought that they were still worth posting. Enjoy πŸ™‚

Great Irish Sayings

☘ You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.
☘ If you’re lucky enough to be Irish, then you’re lucky enough.
☘ May the cat eat you and the devil eat the cat.
☘ Who gossips with you will gossip of you.
☘ A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures.
☘ But the greatest love – the love above all loves, Even greater than that of a mother – Is the tender, passionate, undying love, of one beer drunken slob for another.
☘ Don’t give cherries to pigs or advice to fools.
☘ The Irish – be they kings, or poets, or farmers, They’re a people of great worth, They keep company with the angels, and bring a bit of heaven here to earth.
☘ Both your friend and your enemy think you will never die.
☘ Being Irish is very much a part of who I am. I take it everywhere with me.
☘ Why should you never iron a four leaf clover? You don’t want to press your luck.
☘ The Irish gave the bagpipes to the Scotts as a joke, but the Scotts haven’t seen the joke yet.
☘ A turkey never voted for an early Christmas.
☘ Here’s to our wives and girlfriends. May they never meet!
☘ The Irish don’t know what they want and are prepared to fight to the death to get it.
☘ A quarrel is like buttermilk: once it’s out of the churn, the more you shake it, the more sour it grows.
☘ In heaven there is no beer. That’s why we drink ours here.
☘ God invented whiskey to keep the Irish from ruling the world.
☘ Drink is the curse of the land. It makes you fight with your neighbor. It makes you shoot at your landlord and it makes you miss him.
☘ Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, and fat.
☘ I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my Mum. I know I’ve got Irish blood because I wake up everyday with a hangover.
☘ It is not a secret after three people know it.
☘ For every wound, a balm. For every sorrow, cheer. For every storm, a calm. For every thirst, a beer.
☘ Bless your little Irish heart and every other Irish part.
☘ When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to Heaven. So, let’s all get drunk and go to heaven.
☘ Wherever you go and whatever you do, may the luck of the Irish be there with you.

Groupon CEO’s Hilarious Outgoing Remarks

20130314-191330.jpg

This is hilarious… In the public relations circus that is always trying to play games with the truth (whether it be government, business or otherwise) I love a good bit of honest lighthearted joking like this. Cheers Mr. Mason.
