Mara Wilson’s What...

So, I follow Mara Wilson on Twitter. It’s not specifically because she was the cutest-ever child star who happens to still be equal parts clever, funny, and brilliant. (See her in Matilda or Mrs. Doubtfire for further evidence on the aforementioned childhood cuteness.) See, I found Mara through a circle of funny ladies on the [&hellip

The Thrilling Adventure...

One of the best things about SF Sketchfest every year is getting to watch all the fantastic talent of The Thrilling Adventure Hour. For any unfamiliar with this show, it’s a live, staged version of an old time radio show, and it’s never failed to entertain me for all the years I’ve been there to [&hellip

Benson Movie Interruption:...

Would you judge me if I admit that I look forward to The Doug Benson Movie Interruption every year, because the only thing better than trash-talking your way through terrible movies is hearing some fantastically funny comedians do it for you? I admit, I always want a microphone, and maybe someday they’ll give me one, [&hellip

Nick Carter &...

If admitting that I’ve loved a boyband (one in particular, and pretty much only them) for my entire life makes me uncool, then so be it. I’m uncool. Having said that, I never really got into pop in the way many do. New Kids on the Block aside, there was only really ever one other [&hellip

An Outside Lands...

Day 3 proved to be the busiest day of the festival for me, and while it took me another full hour to find parking, it was unbelievably close and therefore worth waiting for. Even better, (well, for me, anyway) was that one band’s last minute cancellation pushed back the set for the first act I [&hellip

An Outside Lands...

Day 2 started off well-balanced: on one hand, I nabbed a great parking spot in less than ten minutes of arriving in the neighborhood. On the other, it was quite chilly all day. Thankfully, I’d dressed comfortably and had a hoodie with me, so it wasn’t the end of the world. Besides, it threatened rain [&hellip

An Outside Lands...

Ahhh, summer. What better time is there to put on your strangest clothes get out to the nearest park, desert, or fairgrounds for a festival of cool tunes, lovely weather, and all kinds of interesting food, wine, and beer choices? It’s one of my favorite things of the season, and this year I was invited [&hellip

Eric Hutchinson with...

You can’t believe a word Eric Hutchinson says. Don’t believe me? See for yourself: his new album even admits it’s all Pure Fiction. Tall tales or no, I wanted to hear just what Mr. Hutchinson’s been up to since I saw him last, so I rounded up a couple girlfriends last night and headed out [&hellip

Maya Rudolph and...

In the world according to Stace (that’d be me, for those not paying attention), Maya Rudolph is a genius. A comedic genius, you might say, but I mean it in a more general way. I’m just sayin’, if this woman ran for president, she might get my vote. Beautiful, funny, and musically talented, she’s got [&hellip
