Remember when you were 20 and cigarettes weren’t harmful? Obviously you understood academically that they were, but there’s a certain hubris that reaches its peak around that age and fades with time and mistakes.

I quit smoking over 10 years ago, and was never a heavy smoker to begin with, so I was lucky enough to have an easy time of quitting. But occasionally something comes along, usually a movie or TV show, that really makes me miss it. I thought I’d start documenting them to see if there’s a thread. 

So in that spirit, I present volume 1 of the “Things That Make Me Miss Smoking” collection: Inside Llewyn Davis.

Hearing Scott Aukerman sing “Power and the Passion” on U Talkin’ U2 to Me? is truly bizarre. 

Also I am definitely obsessed with this podcast when it is possibly the post self indulgent thing in the world. Please talk to me about it. 

If you like the idea of two guys being very funny while they take an hour or more to get around to the subject of their podcast, I highly recommend “U Talkin’ U2 To Me?”

Regram from my very talented friend @kenquistador to celebrate 20 years of Hellboy. Happy birthday to the world’s greatest paranormal investigator.

I attempted stand-up comedy for the first time in my life yesterday. This was the running order (asterisks are people that didn’t turn up - apparently Raw Comedy has a lot of no-shows). I was scheduled third-last, and the second-last person wasn’t there, so it was practically like headlining. I don’t think I did that well, but I also didn’t bomb horribly, so it’s a start.

This is a very big week for me, but I could just as easily bail on everything that makes it a big week and it would have virtually zero effect, except internally. But I really don’t want to bail for a change. Deep breath, jump off the deep end.

Just realised there’s a chimp on the poster for Wolf of Wall Street, so I guess I’m seeing Wolf of Wall Street as soon as possible.
