Just last week, 10-year-old Sophia Bailey-Klugh wrote and illustrated an endearing letter to U. S. President Barack Obama and, as the daughter of a gay couple, thanked him for supporting same-sex marriage. She then asked for advice on how to respond to those who saw such a thing as “gross and…

THANK YOU.

image

Everyone who donated to the Thrilling Adventure Hour kickstarter, I thank you.

I am neither a writer nor producer for The Thrilling Adventure Hour, I am just a person who gets to perform in it on a regular basis. And doing so has been one of the greatest joys of my career. I am deeply fond of all of my fellow performers, and equally fond, also, of Acker and Blacker, who created this wonderful thing.

To get to make this movie with all of these delightful people is beyond exciting. But as much as I cannot wait to make it, I really can’t wait for you to see it.

Thanks again. You guys are the best.

IT’S GOING TO BE GREAT!

#Thrilling Adventure Hour
ONLY 5K TO GO!

Friends! The THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR concert film is almost a reality! With mere hours left in the kickstarter campaign, we need only $5,000 more to fund the movie!

Hey. I try not to play this card too often. But I give you A LOT of entertainment for free. So even if you have no idea what the Thrilling Adventure Hour is, I am asking you to kick in one dollar. ONE DOLLAR.

Between the 310,00 people that follow me on Twitter, the 45,000 people that follow this Tumblr, and the 16,000 fans of my Facebook page, if you subtract people that are followers on all three of those and take away all SPAMbots, that works out to FIVE THOUSAND PEOPLE.

So come on, you five thousand! A dollar each! YOU’VE SPENT MORE ON DUMBER SHIT FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE GIVEN YOU FAR LESS THAN ME!

Donate: HERE.

"The world doesn’t need help being harder. It’s almost insult to the world and the baked-in difficulties it presents for us to structure our societies in an attempt to make it even harder just to be a living, breathing person in this world. Designing the systems that govern our lives to make everyone’s life more, rather than less, difficult is like standing next to a hurricane with a super-soaker just to make absolutely certain that everyone gets wet. We don’t need to elect leaders who promise to ensure that human life is a perpetual life-or-death competition for everyone, young, old, or incredibly old, a “war of all against all.” The world already IS that way, without any help from us."dcpierson.tumblr.com

PLEASE READ, THERE IS BULLSHIT TO DEAL WITH.imgur.com

The worst part of this? My podcast wasn’t even considered worthy of scamming! - Paul

jakefogelnest:

Click here to read a “nomination” letter I received informing me my podcast has been “selected” to “win” an LA Comedy “Award.” Basically, it’s a “bringer” show with an Internet twist. There’s an article on Splitsider today which explains it perfectly:

If you’re an avid internet comedy fan you may have come across the website for the LA Comedy Awards, an awards show that hands out prizes to stand-ups, podcasts, films, and internet videos, but the whole awards show charges people to participate, allowing entrants to basically buy themselves into an awards show that isn’t a real thing in the first place. Entrants are charged anywhere between $0.99 and $19 to submit their material, and people are even charged to vote, which is completely absurd. It’s all a despicable, low-rent scheme aimed at naive young comedians, taking advantage of their hopes and dreams by promising a big flashy awards show, red carpet interviews, and the chance to add a (phony) award to their resumes if they donate enough money. The LA Comedy Awards website features logos for respected comedy entities like Funny or Die and The Onion as if they sponsor the show when they clearly have nothing to do with it. So, if you’re a young comedy person thinking of entering your stand-up set/podcast/video into this contest think again because it’s the awards show equivalent of a “bringer show” for stand-ups, and an LA Comedy Award is just something some guy made up to take money from gullible comedy novices.

I contacted the guy behind this horseshit and asked him to remove me from his voting scheme. He refused to comply. GREAT, now I get to have fun on the Internet railing against a bullshit subhuman!

He’s nominated my show and many others for “free” in an attempt to build credibility to his completely invented fucktarded awards show. I am sure he will take a generous “Producer” fee to pay rent on his undoubtedly gross apartment in Redondo Beach. 

There is no way in the world anyone would be dumb enough to pay 99¢ to vote for this garbage, but the very idea of my name being associated with it is toilet trash on a level I can’t even comprehend. So if this guy wouldn’t privately respect that I wanted no part of this, fine. He’s thanked me for the “free publicity.” I say, let him have it. Congratulations, fuckbag! Now everyone knows you’re a parasite!

If you were following coverage of Sandy last night, you may have seen photos of nurses and firemen transporting babies from the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) at NYU’s hospital. If you didn’t, you might consider looking them up. They’re very moving. They show courageous emergency and medical…
