A great sketch by Melinda Taub for her UCB NY sketch team Bellevue.  I always want there to more satire at UCB so I was happy to see this.

Here is a classy, highbrow example of my art. Could not be prouder. Hope to share this with my kids one day.

"Life is a silly walk in the park / A knife to your throat held after dark"

Just looked up this old Onion video for no particular reason. This was certainly one of the weirder ones we ever did. I remember many long discussions about how to justify the fact that Jim and Tracy did not immediately recognize that this was a human woman. In the end we just sort of chalked it up to “They are stupid.” Bonus Tip: One of those guys in the haz-mat suits at the end is yours truly. On our first take there was  so much smoke coming out of the tent that I couldn’t see and ended up blundering into that elderly actress and knocking her over. Fortunately she was pretty resilient.

Last night I spent ~15 minutes desperately searching the internet, trying to find this old trailer for Poochinski—a failed TV pilot starring Peter Boyle as a “tough, ill-mannered cop who is gunned down in the line of duty” and is “reincarnated as a streetwise bulldog.” It was worth the effort.

Had to look it up myself. This was a real TV pilot made for ABC in 1990.

Chris Parnell’s performance is brilliant. Can’t believe I still haven’t seen the full movie.

Fiona Apple in a French superhero show is delightful enough, but my favorite part is when “H-Man” appears and looks exactly like what you expect when you hear the words “French superhero”… only thing that could have made it better is if he was smoking. Source: Vulture.

Girls pose for a selfie in front of riot cops. Love the expressions of exaggerated fake terror. Those cops have real guns. Makes my short-list for the defining image of this generation. (I don’t really have such a list.) Source: Daily News
