Q&A With Donald Glover →
There are a lot of amazing things about Donald Glover, but this has to be up there: Wait—you quit 30 Rock before being cast on Community? Oh, yeah. I was really getting into stand-up, and I wanted to write more. I was unemployed for six days. He quits a steady writing job on one of the most critically lauded comedies on TV to concentrate on his own material, is unemployed for less than a...
Something I don't want to do but would like...
chrisreblogs: A mashup video the makes it look like Golem is dating/seeking to date/or something Precious from the movie Precious. Gasp! I had essentially this same idea, but I don’t know how to get select footage of Precious without a DVD.
Wondering What To Get Me For Christmas? →
Updated my Amazon.com wishlist! Take advantage of those Cyber Monday deals, family!
thedailywhat: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon: Neil Young performs a haunting cover of the Fresh Prince theme song and, just like that, my life is complete. Also: A rift in the spacetime continuum. [via.] Whoa, this is good.
Wall Street Journal Interviews Cormac McCarthy →
Great interview. My favorite excerpt: WSJ: How does that ticking clock affect your work? Does it make you want to write more shorter pieces, or to cap things with a large, all-encompassing work? CM: I’m not interested in writing short stories. Anything that doesn’t take years of your life and drive you to suicide hardly seems worth doing. The guy who wrote The Road has a sense...
Daioh Sushi Improv Show
Dreadnought is performing an improv show tonight. Not at Under St. Marks, not at The Creek, or Gotham City Improv, but at Daioh Sushi, a Japanese restaurant across the street from Dallas BBQ on W 23rd St. It sounds ridiculous and awesome. From Don Fanelli: Of course there is a back story here. But more importantly, a kind gentleman that owns a sushi restaurant and sometimes gives motivational...
dangurewitch: Twilight: Three Wolf Moon, written by me and Sarah, directed by Sam, starring the wonderful Aubrey Plaza (now of ‘Parks and Recreation’) and John Gemberling. Digg it! Yes.
coreybrown: Purns has a couple of jobs for the theater. This one is the most important. mikescollins: Purnell - You pick an NYE midnight song yet? I’m currently listening to a mashup of Empire State of Mind / Party in USA (specifically “And a Jay-Z song was on”) that would work very nicely. Just sayin. I agree with Pat: I think this year’s NYE song is a toss up between the original...

Todd 600: One Night Stand →
If you’re eligible for 600 classes, definitely apply for this. I was in the original 600 class that helped develop the One Night Stand form with Charlie three years ago. It’s a combination of Tracers, Monoscene, Evente, and several other forms; it’s one of the most fun and coolest improv long-forms to play in once you get the hang of it. Besides, check out this awesome class...
mikescollins: Someone just told me I was rude for declining a Facebook invite without posting a reason on the event wall. This person is wrong, right? With the number of Facebook invites a performer with performer friends gets per day, it’s naturally understood that there will always be scheduling conflicts, right? If it’s something like a person’s birthday party and I can’t make it, I’ll...
Curious: Does anyone I know live in the West Village besides me and Chelsea? I know Josh, Benjamin, and Lucia do… Anyone else?
