Look look look I made a thing!

So hey yeah I was invited to Timberwolves Media Day as a social media cor­re­spon­dent (DATELINE: MINNEAPOLIS!) for the sec­ond year in a row! I over­es­ti­mated the strength of my Flip cam­era recharge­able bat­tery last year so my video ended up all cat­ty­wam­pus, so THIS year, I made damn sure I brought like a zil­lion AAs with me and BAM, it all worked out great and stuff.

Among other ques­tions, I made sure to ask all avail­able gen­tle­men to describe their noto­ri­ously enig­matic Coach Rick Adelman in one word, and this is the result. I had never used iMovie before or uploaded any­thing to YouTube ever, so this was a big old labor of love and I had so much fun putting it together.

For the record, if any­one asked me that ques­tion my response would be “dreamy,” duh.

BONUS! Below is the orig­i­nal ver­sion I made uti­liz­ing a siz­zling hot Can jam which unfor­tu­nately alerted their pira­cy­bots that I was using third-​party audio and it ended up with these restric­tions and dumb ads and blah blah what­not. I couldn’t bear to take it down because that jam is just too hot. FEEL IT

TmykWould you believe I made and attempted to pub­lish another ver­sion in between these that got a warn­ing? I was like hmm, third-​party audio is a prob­lem, then I should rum­mage through my ter­ri­fy­ing stash of sweet pro­duc­tion music and dig up some PHAT LICKS and then fweeee it’ll go through no prob­lem. And I AGONIZED until I located some nasty KPM tracks and recut every­thing so it all synced up just so, la la la, and then it got flagged any­way. WHAT. KPM, you’re sim­ply too fancy I guess. I finally grabbed the deWolfe Heavy Truckin’ LP and was like OK FINE, JEEZ. The end.

Just remem­ber I love all of you and I look for­ward to being a lot more active at this here address. BYE FOR NOW

2011 sure is off to a shitty start



In case you’re won­der­ing, it’s been a com­bi­na­tion of ill­ness, new job, new job not work­ing out, new ver­sion of the no-​longer-​new job, new ver­sion of the no-​longer-​new job not work­ing out so well either, won­der­ing if I should get a new-​new job, won­der­ing if I should go on dis­abil­ity, my doc­tors telling me I should go on dis­abil­ity, won­der­ing how to afford the wait­ing period before dis­abil­ity kicks in, going broke, more ill­ness, death(s) in the fam­ily, ill­ness, med­ica­tion changes, more ill­ness, going even more broke, bank­ruptcy #2, lit­i­ga­tion, ill­ness, etc. So that’s how it’s been over here.

Now then. You rang?!

I have all the respect in the world for Ms. Jennifer Lopez and lit­tle to no inter­est or patience in 183-​year-​old broke­down Muppet Steven Tyler, so between those two I’m torn about the upcom­ing Idol sea­son. This could be the end of it all and all that but gosh, I just don’t know. Truth is Ms. Jennifer Lopez is too damn good for these clowns and my view­er­ship would be secured if Simon were still around.

I mean, let’s think about the good old days. Remember the good old days?

Who knew we had it so good then?! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t regret for a sec­ond skip­ping out on last sea­son. Oh God. Every time a com­mer­cial would show up on TV I would say THANK HEAVENS! I am not watch­ing this show. So’s I got to think­ing, what would it take to con­vince me to tune in each week with breath­less antic­i­pa­tion of the won­der and the magic and the unpre­dictable je né sais quoi I so cher­ished in the Idol of so many sea­sons ago?

Oh hell YES that would. And don’t even dare to con­vince me that you would do any­thing less than PAY to watch that setup. I know I would install a coin slot and dol­lar changer in my TV and say TAKE EVERYTHING I HAVE, FOR YOU HAVE MADE SOMETHING OF EVERLASTING BEAUTY. Amen.


Reason to be cheerful

Dismal though the Bulls are tend­ing to look as of late, there’s great joy to be had in see­ing Brad shave his head again. That is all.


America, it’s time to laugh again

Can you guess who this mys­tery doucheball is?

YES! It’s Dead Wife Man™ live and in per­son in the Best Buy® Rotunda at the Mall of America® on March 5th. And I was there!

I had no plans to go to MOA that day and had no idea that any (accent on) special […]
