I talk about having nothing to talk about, new fun holiday ideas, the problem with rewarding the wrong qualities, the existential problem of being single, and the things that get in the way of LIFE.
I talk about not having anything to talk about, dating your parents, and a general mess of randomness.
I talk about people who eat suckers, my first trip to Vegas which was unlike anyone else's, and ISIS. Yes, I caved and fucking talked about ISIS.
I invent a new philosophical concept of time then I talk about sports bar idiocy, the commoditization of laughter, comedy audiences, and love vs. commerce. They're all hits!
I talk about seeing Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon) in Newtown, CT and what it means to be a struggling artist and the feeling of being under-appreciated. I'm sure there's a sex joke in there for you simple-minded goblins.
We're back! I talk about... fuck, I forgot already. It was a good one. Oh, how I wish I were better at everything, the plague of self-doubt, questioning the value of certain processes when compared to more satisfying life experiences. You know, the "hits." It's all here. Get it!
No show this week. A few quick updates and plugs. I'm taking a brief summer break and I'll be back with new episodes soon! Get this update in your ears in the meantime.
I was a guest on a live taping of Pete Holmes' podcast, "You Made It Weird." It was a crazy fucking show and I had so much fun. Kumail Nanjiani, Emily Gordon, Cameron Esposito, Whitmer Thomas, and Brooks Wheelan were on as well and they were all hilarious.

I talk a little bit about the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal. I also talk about how beauty can emerge from strife and the powerful nature of that process.
I talk about comedy on this one. Chicago comedy vs. New York comedy and why Chicago is so awesome. Sorry if you're not into comedy, but it was on my mind and I don't have a boss at my podcast job.
I talk about cock rings and other weird sex activities, the paradox of feeling both insanely complex yet utterly meaningless, why sports might actually be evil, and the annoying political debates that obstruct the pathway to meaningful living.
I talk about going back to Chicago, getting served with a lawsuit, mushrooms, and why everyone needs to do them.
I talk about the experience of going to my friend's wake, funeral, and tribute show, what I learned about the range of the human condition, and why I get so mad about things.
I talk about my friend, Dan Ronan, who recently died.
I talk about #YesAllWomen, Elliot Rodger, and the demonic possession that is the male sex drive. Probably some other things but I've had a few beeeeeeeeeers.
I talk about being consumed by demons, Elliot Rodger and why everyone is wrong about it, why I'm wrong about everyone being wrong, @wettbutt and obsessive texting, and a nice warm message about how to fix everything. So hilarious!
I talk about calling my grandma, dead grandparents, the street rape myth, Cecily McMillan, Occupy Wall Street, and the global revolution that will never happen.
I talk about "check your privilege", and I labor through some other bullshit. This isn't a great episode, but it won't kill you to see the cracks in my armor. I think I bitch about being unable to pick up a girl in an elevator but that goes nowhere. You'll see. Or not. Enjoy?
I talk about Cecily McMillan and Occupy Wall Street, the formation of a police state, why people have no recourse, and why 9/11 was Occupy Wall Street with balls.
I talk about manifestos, pneumonia, why the post office turns people into murderers, and why your material about homeless people sucks.
