I fell down a yourfaveisproblematic hole and ended up on Louis CK. Then I followed a link from there. And found the following:
Someone feels very comfortable tossing around that word.

Watching it now.
He’s got the whole gay jewish theatre kid thing down pat, but I’m not sure that’s a space I want to occupy with him.
Delivery is like an Emerson College Daniel Tosh.
Haven’t turned it off yet though.

Anonymous said: Idk what it is, but, Caroline's voice does not agree with me. There are tracks where her voice sounds ok, but most of the tracks she sings on on Duets sounds real boring and she seems to be only able to sing in one tone. The woman who sang on the Meredith Hunter track sounded fantastic. Why not have her sing on more tracks or does she have other musical obligations? If she replaced Caroline on Duets you'd have a stellar EP.

Xbox. I don’t have the time or patience for video games like I used to, but I’ll still dip in when I get the chance. Everything coming out now looks like a lame Transformers movie. Anything as rewarding as Red Dead Redemption come out in the past few years?

I think you have to get intrepid and make it. I had it at Nights and Weekends in Greenpoint, on french toast.

I haven’t been consuming much media lately. Haven’t read a comic in like six years. Here’s some shit I like lately, some media, some not so much.
Bought Alien: Isolation a few days ago. It’s pretty good. Really effective use of the environment, and playing it causes a legitimate stress reaction sometimes. Unfortunately it also falls into too many of the corny pitfalls of survival horror to break it too far out of the pack.
Ben listening to a lot of The Byrds lately, especially the later post Hillman and Parsons era, where you can tell that the sun had really set on them. On the subject, the Gram Parsons Avalon live record has been getting a lot of plays this fall too.
Almost all of the TV I’ve watched lately has been The Sport Of Kings, American Football or shows where older men with garish windsor knot ties yell over each other about it. That Percy Harvin thing was pretty crazy.
Cold In July was ok, even though I find that guy from Dexter to be real shitty. The part where he pulled the father off the railroad tracks was well done.
Just had my first Guava Butter experience. Feel like I don’t have friends when I find out that things this good exist and nobody tells me.
Got a package of fir pine incense from Caroline’s store that makes my whole house smell like it’s on fire, which I appreciate.
Finally got to break out my J. Crew Navy Fielding Jacket today, and I’m convinced that it is the best mass produced sport coat ever made. Super thick, rigid Moon Mill wool, wider lapels, patch pockets, 3/2 roll, throat latch; it’s pretty much perfect.

Watching it now and really enjoying the hell out of it.

Anonymous said: As a comedian, I liked some of your critiques. If you were looking more for the funny friend type I would reccomend you check out anything by the following: joe derosa, Sean patton, joe Zimmerman, Rory Scovel, Chris porter, Marc maron, Jamie kilstein, Dan Cummings, JC Ratliff, bubbs Harris, Nate bergatze, and if ya need more I can suggest more.
Will give them a try. The Marc Maron stuff I’ve seen hasn’t impressed me.
We go on tour in a couple days and I’m trying to bring stuff to watch in the van.
So far I’ve got Hardcore, Get Carter, and Don’t Look Now. I’d like to stock my computer with some comedy as well.

Anonymous said: Pay, what is a good way to look at religion, when reading, to see that it isn't boring? I'm currently reading heavily religious material in my English class (college) and I'm bored to death after 3 lines. Any suggestions?
The exciting guys are the non-academics. The commentators. They write fun, sardonic books that are largely anecdotal.
But, if you’re reading the fundamentals and finding it boring, try reminding yourself that 80% of the people currently alive have some religious affiliation and understanding their faiths is helpful in understanding them as individuals. That should keep it relevant for you.
