Sometimes I play this game where I think of products other than Chevrolet trucks that it’d be fun to sing “Like a Rock” about, ideally in a voice imitating the sex noises of Bob Seger and Scott Stapp’s theoretical love child.

How about:

  • Tampons
  • Cocaine
  • Faux marble countertops
  • Bread

Unbeknownst to him, an ant was skittering around in one of my former professor’s mustaches today and I did a terrible job of not looking at it.

Tonight I had dinner with friends I haven’t seen in a while.  We sat in the nice chairs of the nice patio dining set on the nice concrete-and-brick back porch next to a nice manicured lawn in the nice weather eating nice spaghetti and salad and almond biscotti and fresh peaches from Heaven and Dos Equis and black coffee at my nice former professor’s house (but not the same one whose mustache had an ant in it).

I said SCIENCE a lot.

Nothing I say is important, and that is a huge relief.


I Won’t Fuck Us Over

I have been listening to The National all the time, which does good things to me. Also, I saw them play on Saturday and touched Matt Berninger’s shoulder when he walked around in the audience during “Mr. November.” The chorus has looped in me all day and I like that.

I’ve written a few sketches fer this hur comedy group thang at Ball State called Something Else.  This is the second in a currently two-part series of sketches I’ve written called Laudable Literature.  Here is the first one, which Will Stockton called “intellectually irredeemable.”  He’s absolutely right.  And the title’s spelled wrong.  I did not write any of the puppet stuff, especially the part at the end.  You can blame my friend Kris Knight for that.
