Comedian and podcaster Marc Maron has a new show on Friday nights on IFC called Maron that has been on a for a few weeks. I was able to catch up on it this weekend and to my delight got to see both Maron and fellow comedian Dave Foley with a couple of nice steeshes.
Maron, much like Louis C.K.’s Louie, follows a fictionalized Maron. Even though it’s not as good as the old shows on the TGIF lineup, it pretty good entertainment for a Friday night show.
David Krumholtz has appeared in 69 movies and tv shows since his debut in the 1993 Michael J. Fox movie Life With Mikey. Among other things, he was in The Santa Clause, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, and was even the lead in the show Numb3rs that lasted 6 seasons on CBS. Still, I remember him as Barry Corman “The Cereal King” from his first role. Sure he was kind of a jerk, but you have to respect any child that wears a scarf.
60 Minutes Sports had a very cool story on Professional Darts in England. According to the story, Phil “The Power” Taylor is the Michael Jordan of darts. All of his titles are too long to list, so go here if you have a lot of time on your hands (you do because you’re reading this already).
The above picture is a much younger Phil than he appears today, but you gotta love that quaffed hair/steesh/chest hair combo he was rocking back in the 80′s! Phil said he’s made millions of dollars over the years and his arm is insured for $15 million.
I’ve caught darts on tv a few times and it’s always exciting to hear the announcers and crowd going bananas, but the 60 Minutes piece made going to a darts match look more fun than any other sporting event I’ve ever attended.
I guess if something gets popular enough porn is going to parody it. Porks and Recreation does just that to Parks and Recreation. I didn’t watch the trailer because I’m at work and I want to be able to come back tomorrow, but you can get it here.
I don’t think I’d even care to watch it. It’s a damn shame that the merging of Ron Swanson and pornography couldn’t even yield a real mustache.
It once felt like it would never get here, but in reality time is just going at the same rate for ever so only a dummy would think that it would never get here. Anyway, we’ll get us some fresh Tobias coming our way on May 26th.
Carlos Villanueva is a pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. He’s had a terrific start to the season thus far and it has absolutely everything to do with his stylish steesh. It’s refreshing to see a nice mustache on an MLB player after having to look at Joba Chamberlain and Ian Desmond during spring training.
Allan Arbus was a photography and actor, best known for playing Major Sidney Freedman on M*A*S*H. The New York Times described his character by saying, “He treated wounds of the psyche much as Capt. Hawkeye Pierce treated surgery patients: with a never-ending string of zingers.” He’s probably glad he was unable to read that. Rest in peace and rest in steesh.
Louis Zorich is an actor, probably most recognizable to you for playing Pete in The Muppets Take Manhattan or Paul Reiser’s dad in Mad About You, depending on if you like great movies or bad TV shows. Here’s Pete giving Kermit the Frog a life lesson:
Today is actress Rooney Mara’s birthday. When I received my daily celebrity birthday text message (standard messaging fees applied) saw this on IMDb I thought I better put a mustache on a picture of her from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. And guess what?! I did it!!! You can see that very picture I’m speaking of at the top of this post. Enjoy!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted because I’ve been traveling around watching the Astros or because I’ve been lazy and no one pays me to do this so why should I waste my time I’ve been busy at work. Above is a picture that Deadspin posted last week of an Astros fan with what can only be a very time-consuming mustache.
Our favorite steeshman, Nick Offerman, was at it again the other night when he appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Not only did he show off that perfect croissant-shaped steesh, he dressed as a chicken as part of the “Chickeneers.” Check out the video below for the all-cluck version of the Lumineers “Ho Hey.”
James Adomian is a stand-up comedian and actor. I saw him last night at Zanies in Chicago and he was really funny. I’d heard him many times doing characters like Jesse Ventura and Huell Howser on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast (he also appeared on an episode of the TV show on IFC). He’s not only hilarious, he has a great mustache that he described as the “thinnest mustache allowable by law.”
Trying to tell someone that you think a comedian is very funny can be tricky. I can recommend you go see James Adomian this weekend at Zanies in Chicago because he’s the funniest live comedian I’ve seen since Hannibal Buress, while my cousin Bryan would recommend you go see Jim Belushi because he’s the funniest guy he’s seen since Frank Caliendo. You’ll just have to realize that I have a sense of humor and Bryan has an “According to Jim” poster in his basement.
Kick Ass 2 has a red band trailer, and in that trailer we see Christopher Mintz-Plasse (I wonder if he has two moms or two dads?) with a steesh. Kick Ass was such a sneaky-good movie, that it might be hard to repeat it. The preview looks good, I just hope Jim Carrey doesn’t get all Jim Carrey in it and ruin it.
Adam Driver is a former United States Marine and current Television and film actor. He appears on the HBO series Girls as Adam Sackler (haha). Girls is a pretty good show but for my money, the guys are Girls are the best. I like Adam because it’s nice to see someone in their 20′s that doesn’t look out of place with a steesh or like he is trying too hard.
65-year-old Alabama resident James Bramlett, accompanied by his 43-year-old mustache caught a comically big fish this week. According to the this article, the fish weighed in at a whooping 70 pounds. The photograph looks completely fake because there’s no way this guy could hold up a fish that heavy until you realize it’s hanging from some type of blue rope.
We’d like to congratulate James on his big score. I hope he and his wife and his kids and his neighbors like eating bass. They are going to be eating it 3 meals a day for the next few months.
Daft Punk placed an ad during last week’s SNL. It contained a 15 second clip of new music. Some guy looped the 15 seconds into a 10 minute recording. Some genius added a loop to Ron Swanson dancing and suddenly it’s CAN’T MISS stuff. Enjoy:
Kazimierz Michał Wacław Wiktor Pułaski, or as his pals refer to him Casimir Pulaski, was a soldier and military commander who has been called “the father of American cavalry”. He was born in Poland before moving to North America. During the American Revolutionary War, he saved the life of George Washington and became a general in the Continental Army.
Pulaski is one of only seven people to be awarded honorary United States citizenship which is impressive, unless one of the other people is Cap’n Crunch or something. I don’t have time to look it up.
According to a google image search, someone had it out for C.P. and went around adding fake mustaches on all the pictures.
Kenan Thompson has been on SNL since 1993 2003. In his youth, he was in a couple of the best movies of the 90′s, Heavyweights and Mighty Ducks 2. Kenan was a cast member on The Steve Harvey Show which might explain why he does a decent impression of Harvey.
Here is the skit from this weekend where he helps a man get over his phobia of horses while explaining to people that his phobia is falling asleep and having his mustache choke him to death.
For some reason, more than once in my youth, my mom dressed me up as a hobo for Halloween. Probably because it was an easy, affordable costume. I would wear old dirty clothes and my mom would put vaseline and coffee grounds on my face for a beard. It appears that’s what’s happening here with New York Yankee pitcher Joba Chamberlain’s mustache. He really ought to get a paper towel and wipe it clean as to stop embarrassing himself and real men with real mustaches.
