My friend Daniel Perlmutter started a podcast called Sundays with Dan. He interviews me on episode two. I tried to be kind of funny but I think I need help. Dan’s also one of the guys from Automatic Vaudeville, which is a funny filmmaking studio thing.
My podcast is coming soon.

A few announcements.
First off, I did a really interesting interview with Nathan Fielder. You might recognize him from the times you went to your parents house and they were watching This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Well, he’s in LA now, where he was hired to write for Important Things with Demetri Martin. I’m going to work on editing in the next few days and hope to have something out soon-ish.
Other upcoming episodes include the lovely and talented Lisa Joyce, Paul Anthony and Andy Dixon, who turns 30 tomorrow.
Also, my arm candy is co-hosting a show tomorrow (August 25) at the Biltmore. It’s called Arrogance and it’s co-hosted by Dave Shumka of Stop Podcasting Yourself (of which I’m a big fan.) It pits improvisers against comedians in the ultimate showdown. Here’s the flyer.
Finally, Lightning Dust has a new album out. They’re the beautiful little band who let me use their song “Wind Me Up” as the theme for my podcast. Anyhow, their new album is called Infinite Light and it’s delightful. They’re playing the Biltmore on Thursday here in Vancouver so be sure to come down if you’re in town.

In my three years at the Canadian Press, the article I was most proud of was the one above. I think it was a slow weekend (I worked weekends) and I wanted a reason to check out Nike’s premier skate video and so I somehow made a story out of it. I remember being so frustrated that Nike turned down my request to be interviewed because I wasn’t “core” media. But I have to give them credit. They know exactly what they’re doing. Hence the video below.

I’m looking for a professional photographer who’d be open to working on an exciting project ON SPEC. If it flies (which we’ll make happen, obviously) it’ll be awesome and good exposure. So please get in touch, firstname.lastname@example.org

Oh hey, check it. Pink Mountaintops has a new video, directed by fellow Jew Shira Blustein. A few of my babe friends are in it:
The “lead singer,” Deandra, is one of my most favourite girls alive. Her boobs almost turned me gay once. True story. The story ended with me crying, partly out of confusion and partly out of hilarity while Deandra laughed her horse, dry laugh, till she could barely breath. She’s one of those rare gems who doesn’t bullshit. Here’s a picture of her at my best friend Chris’ birthday:
On the podcast front, I’m still working on a few things. Aiming to interview Paul Anthony next week and my friend who’s intentionally homeless for the next six months. So keep checking back. I know you do anyways.
