That Time Of The Mirth

I feel funny right now. In a good/bad way. I feel a jokefulness but also a tingling.
A jokeful tingling, you may ask? Sadly, no. Just a tingling. The jokefulness is totally separate. The summer is almost over. Mine has been alright. There's been warmth.
Beyond that, Brutal Knights have shows september 17th and 18th opening up for Cmon at the Rivoli and a show the day before in Guelph.
The next joke club is at 8PM on Thursday, September 8th and before that I'll be at Canker on Friday, September 2nd. I'm also MCing a Bush League show at the social on September 7th.

G.I Jew

That's what I feel like today; a Jewish commando ready to die before letting them pull out of Gaza. Hey I think you guys all know my philosophy: "Nuke em if you got em".
Just kidding. This middle eastern situation is just an all-around douchebag. I don't know which collection of clean-shaven/heavily bearded people I agree with less.

I am a pushover. I get a comment asking me to update my B=log, and so I do. If everybody else jumped off a cliff I would have a hard time not also jumping.
Lately things have been OK. I really have no idea how to use my life correctly, but besides that I'm fine. Joke Club last week was really good. All the acts were fun. I was gonna show a Jubal Brown video entitled Life Is Pornography but at the last minute we decided to wait until it was slightly cut. I've been sending out pitches to magazines for stories lately, but at the moment "the fish ain't bitin". Maybe sometime soon "the fish will bite".

I was around Georgian Bay for a couple of days recently. That was nice. More cottage wanted from me. There's nothing quite like swimming in cold waters while not thinking about working. I think that's how the people of the titanic also felt.

The Montreal/Sherbrooke shows were fun. I drank some guarina-infused malt liquor in a can the size of my pinky finger. It's a waste of money unless you like investing in having new subjects to discuss.

There are shows, of course. No Dynamics have always been friends and supporter-types of my jokes. They have very nicely asked me to MC their two nights of EP release shows at The Bagel, located on the south side of college street right by Spadina. The shows are $7 at the door and advance tickets are available at Rotate this for $5, I think. On Friday 40 Watt Head, Tradition and a few others open. On Saturday it's Panzram's Ghosts, Pony Da Look and another sweet band are rockin'it. They should be fun shows. Come visit.

Then on Monday August 22nd I'll be partaking in an all-videogame material edition of Standup In Alpha Zones, my friend Mack Lawrenz' bi-weekly comedic hoedown at the Gladstone Hotel. It's free and starts at 8. Plez com
