For those who don’t know, Clark and Michael was an internet series starring Clark Duke and Michael Cera and it’s my favorite thing to ever come from the internet. There were only 10 episodes, but those contained lines I still quote to this day, most of them coming from my comedy crush, Clark Duke.
Here are a few of my faves:
“If there’s one piece of lettuce in my hard shell taco, I’ll but it down, whole building.”
“Her ass was shaped bizarre. It was like two globes of two different planets colliding.”
And of course, there’s Clark’s pitch for his secret show, “D.A. Dad”:
“It’s about a single father of three that’s also a district attorney for the city. That’s the genius of it; the complexity. You got it on two levels – you got it on parallel rails running down: a theme on one side, and character arc on the other. We’re going to nail that 18-34 market. He thinks he’s teaching these kids but these kids are really teaching him.”
Last night, I spent about 6 hours finding and customizing a new WordPress theme for Trashwire. After a lot of browsing, I fell in love with One Designs’ Cover WP theme. This theme is not only way easier to use from the administrative back-end, but also for readers because it puts more content on the front page and makes it a lot easier to find archived content. It also incorporates Facebook and Twitter so it’s easier to connect with Trashwire writers through social networks or personal blogs (like this one).
I still need to do a few small tweeks and adjustments, but it’s up and running now. Check it out at Trashwire.com.
If you haven’t seen Stephon Marbury’s 24/7 live internet reality show StarburyTV then you’ll probably have no idea what I’m talking about in this post. But before you scroll down or close this tab on your browser, let me just say that it is one of the most bizarre, fascinating and oddly entertaining things I’ve ever watched. It’s almost like the first time I saw “Trapped in the Closet” and couldn’t really think of a way to explain it to my friends. It’s really just something you have to see to understand.
Anyway, there’s all kinds of debate raging on Twitter and other sites as to weather Marbury’s just an out of work athlete who’s fueling some kind of ego-driven desire for attention or a completely insane person who’s having a mental breakdown live via webcam. I won’t weigh in either way because, honestly, I’m not really sure.
After checking out the “show” for about an hour today, the only way I could describe it was with a quote from Seinfeld. In the episode “The Letter” a snobby older couple analyzes the portrait of Kramer saying…
“I sense great vulnerability. A man-child crying out for love. An innocent orphan in the post-modern world.”
“I see a parasite. A sexually depraved miscreant who is seeking only to gratify his basest and most immediate urges.”
“His struggle is man’s struggle. He lifts my spirit.”
“He is a loathesome, offensive brute. Yet I can’t look away.”
“He transcends time and space.”
“He sickens me.”
“I love it.”
