Sometimes I feel pretty intellectual

And then sometimes my mom texts me to say she successfully defended her dissertation, as I’m writing “part where Columbus can’t stop shitting his pantaloons” in a notebook.

slacktory:

Schmidty you great goofball

That’s meeeeeeee

While the rest of us were in Nashville our new guy filmed a totally normal behind-the-scenes minute in the Cracked office! Get a load of how normal it is!

This video does not at all take a humorous turn partway through!

Here, have some stand-up of mine for free.

QUESTION: Why do old comedians tend to be unfunny, while old regular-people tend to be the funniest folks alive?

THEORY: it’s because old comedians, due to old habits, never fully achieve the state of grace that is no longer giving a poop.

I wish I had seen these sketches a lot sooner. Tight, funny, and making something universal out of a chunk of history you get the basics of in public school and that’s it.

“A punchline for Pat is the calm smile of a man made of watermelons being revealed through parting morning mist.”

Pendleton Ward describing his friend, animator Pat McHale [x]

I think if you have people in your life who get you well enough to describe your sense of the world that perfectly, you need to keep them close.

If Sims were self-aware: A conversation between Mortimer Goth and Bob Newbie.

"You know how many friends you gotta maintain to be a good politician?"

"Seventeen?"

"Seventeen!"

Written and directed by Alex Coulombe for Slacktory; starring TJ Clark as Mortimer and Michael Finn as Bob. Full credits here.

Filmed this in February (see post), promised I’d have it done before The Sims 4 came out, procrastinated for a couple months, heard in June the release date would be September 2nd, panicked, had a way-too-busy summer, started working on it properly in early August, finished today. 

I hope you like it!

This is the first filmy thing I’ve ever made. What it lacks in production quality, I hope it makes up for in awesome video game inside-jokes. Enjoy!!

So glad to have seen Coulombe’s Sims epic go from stage to green screen to my computer screen in Los Angeles. He and Nick made it a thing and I’m thrilled about it.
