RIP Nelson Mandela. You were a great example to everyone.
I mentioned before that I went to The New School and when I was there I made a friend named Will.
Will was an institution. He was one of those guys that was so positive and good. It was honor to know him and an honor to call him friend.
Will unfortunately passed on due to complications to an injury. I spent the past day thinking about him and thinking about our conversations, and I really just miss the guy. I missed the dude after graduation, and I’m ashamed that I didn’t visit as much as I should have.
I wish I could talk to him again. Just a hey how are you doing, I want to hear him talk about his son again, or give me advice on girls, anything I don’t give a shit; I just want my friend back.
Us New Schoolers call ourselves a community. Even though we’re fractured, and we have different opinions, and come from different places we’re all proud that we were there. Will was the one man that made us a community. We loved him.
It sounds weird and strange, but its a comfort knowing that there are literally several thousand people that’s feeling the same loss as I am.
The clip is from a student radio interview with Will. I love this clip because this is Will, and it was exactly how he was.
I hope he could teach you and you can take something away from it.
Please keep Will’s son in your thoughts. He’s a young kid and it’s tough to lose someone so close to you so close to the holidays.
Everything is on the table, from surf schools and skate parks to beer gardens, amusement rides, cafes, and kayak and fishing equipment rentals.

A giant fence. Keeping them in.
So I’ve been working on this project since May. It’s a pilot. It’s about two guys who figure out how to get a time machine from the future, comedy and adventure ensues.
It’s less Doctor Who, but more Bill and Ted meets it’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
I’ve been through 5 full drafts, I’m on draft 6 because I needed to raise the stakes a bit and change a few things, and so on.
Then I decided that it should be a full hour instead of a half hour, and so on.
The point is I’ve been beating my head against this for so long and I don’t know if I can finish this draft. I’m hoping that it’s the last one so I can just do minor tweaks and sell it off.
Or try to.
But I’m just so tired of it right now. Month after month I’ve been slamming my face into this thing and I just want it to be done.
I don’t know if I bastardized it enough for it to be any good. I threw away scenes, plot points, added more, took away, added characters, added jokes, changed jokes, removed jokes.
I need sleep. I don’t know if I can keep going at it and its one of the reasons I left my crappy job, so I can dedicate more time to it.
I don’t want to do this anymore, I want to move on to the next thing.
Have you ever noticed that when people on OKCupid say that they do stand-up, or work as a comedy writer they aren’t funny? Maybe it’s a meta-thing; like you’re so unfunny it becomes hilarious. Like Louis CK?
Try not to puke if you’re going to be reading this.
Anthony Weiner’s sexting partner Sydney Leathers is living up to her last name … in the most disgusting way possible — TMZ has learned she’s slicing off a portion of her hoo-ha … and auctioning it to the highest bidder.
Sources tell us, Leathers’ recent foray into the porn biz made her self-conscious about what she calls “excess skin” down there — so she’s decided to undergo a labiaplasty … to remove a portion of her outer genitalia for a “cleaner” look.
We’re told Sydney’s getting trimmed next week in Santa Barbara with a doctor named Neal Handel, and it’s gonna cost her $8,400. Those porno profits (yeah, she had some) will come in handy.
The really gross part … we’re told Leathers plans to SELL the surgically-removed skin on an auction website.
As for a minimum bid? None listed … so, the auction’s wide open. Sydney … not so much.
Way to go Anthony. You chose one classy as fuck lady.
