World's Worst Mothers

Listen, if you tell your kid that he was an immaculate conception and that he has a very special future, chances are he's going to grow up to be the galaxy's greatest space-murderer. That Annakin was a ticking timebomb.

Kate & William: the Royal Pre-Nup

We were able to get a look at the pre-nuptial contract between Prince William and Kate Middleton. There were some surprise clauses!  He may never refer to her as “common” and she may not refer to him as “in-bred” By mutual agreement, any offspring will be raised both “hoity” AND “toity” After two years of...

Florida and Back

We did 2 shows on Thursday, 2 classes and 2 shows on Saturday, 2 classes on Sunday. Bill and I raced home and arrived at 11pm at iO Chicago for the regularly scheduled 3033 show. That was part of the discussion from the start... we HAD to be back to do our show. And we did it. Thank you, 3033! Thank you, Orlando! Thank you, Gainesville Improv Fest! I had an amazing time and I'll definitely be back!
The Gainesville Improv Fest has come and gone. And I went and had an amazing time.

the WORST Halloween Costumes - 2010

When I read the name I thought it was a sexy Helen Hunt outfit. Instead it's this invitation to be groped.
Happy October! I love Halloween, but every year the store-bought costumes get dumberer and dumberer. Here’s a selection (male and female) of some of the worst offenders.

Book Burning? Start With Kindle'ing

Do you have to choose between a new e-reader and your beloved books? I love new technology. I still use my first generation iPhone and I was a very early NetFlix and Tivo subscriber, but when it came to the Kindle I was very leery. I’m a bibliophile. My house is crowded with books upon...

The Future of America

All tech companies will guarantee all firmware for five years... not the usual breakage warranty, but a promise that there will be no super-cool-hardware-update-that-makes-me-feel-dumb-for-buying-this-thing-NOW. Yes, software updates that make my expensive device better and more efficient, but please, the hardware should last at least five years.
Based on years of research, predicting trends and patterns, here are my hopes for our future. See you in the Future, Americans!

Superheroes vs. the Gulf Oil Spill

Green Lantern can use his super-ring to make just about anything. Not only that, there's about 6000 members of the Green Lantern Corps. Earth's very own Lantern (Hal Jordan) could do it easily. Close the plumes, filter out the oil and then donate it all to Gulf Relief Fund.
Sometimes you wish you had superpowers to help the planet, right? Okay, maybe it’s just me. But with this BP Gulf Oil Spill, even the most powerful of caped crusaders might seem powerless. Let’s see how they stack up…  We’ve already seen how Aquaman would fare. Can you tell I have insomnia?
