4/3/2010 – Welcome to Boston, Mass Retahd

Blog #357: Welcome to Boston, Mass Retahd

By Guest Blogger Alex Demers

So Alex is coming through with a guest blog this weekend while I get ready for my final push next week. The New Deal weekend is in full force (except Noah said he might not do one tomorrow… BUT IT’S STILL IN FULL FORCE!). And Alex, a Boston native himself, decided to grace the internets with his presence as a Boston Masshole showing pictures of Boston and then talking to you about them. He has gone above and beyond the call of duty… two full pages!

I met Alex a little over two years ago. He is a brilliant friend, an amazingly funny and gifted improviser, but probably more importantly he introduced me to my favorite Sushi restaurant in the city… which for any friend of mine puts you above the rest. I love sushi. Anyway, Alex is in my comedy group The New Deal, and we’ve spent countless hours together, but possibly the highlight on stage was earlier this week when the two of us (Noah was sick) got together for a Chekhov festival and presented to the audience a 50 minute improvised Chekhov play that involved a general who hated birch trees, an artist that was running out of money, around 7 servants all named Nina in some way, a young woman waiting for her love to return, a drunk uncle and a jewish grandfather for some reason. Doing that patient, and ultimately very rewarding, show with Alex was one of the most fun pieces I’ve gotten to do on stage. And I won’t forget the look on his face when I muddied the whole thing up and made him a third servant… looked like he was going to either kill me or break down laughing. It’s these Alex moments that I look back and cherish. A great friend both on and off the stage.


NOTE: I added the Mass in the title to fulfill my state blogs requirements… also cause I’m a jerk.

Blog #356: Graphing Roger Ebert’s Tweets

Roger Ebert ( @ebertchicago ) seems to tweet more than any human being can. It’s insanely impressive… borderline immortal God like. But with all that tweeting, when the hell does he sleep?! I make a few charts, graphs and analysis of a single day in Ebert’s twitter history. March 31st, 2010. It’s even more insane than I thought it was…

Blog #355: Holy Crap! CNN Fails Again!

Well… I’ve got to say that I make fun of CNN a lot, but secretly just love them… but today… man… today is bad. There are stories flying around left and right and these idiots just aren’t covering them! I mean c’mon CNN! With the news coming out today how are you instead covering TSA regulations? Jesus… sometimes I just wonder why…

Blog #354: Two Girls One Cup Failblog

I try rather unsuccessfully to cash in on a three year old craze about watching a disgusting movie and filming my reaction to it. It’s probably best to start at the bottom of this one.

Blog #352: Moses is 100% American

Well we’re rounding the corner of finishing this piece up and it’s getting harder and harder to come up with ideas. Thank the freakin’ lord for CNN. Today there was a piece about how Moses is uniquely American. So I made a blog about how Moses is COMPLETELY AMERICAN! Like everything good in America we stole it and it’s ours now.
