Back For The Future

The sketch group I joined recently, Alpaca Lips comedy has a live sketch show at Strange Loop Records every other month. We are really working on getting to the bottom of how comedy works.

On the other months, there is a stand up comedy showcase show that I attended last night as an audience member and I have to say that place is amazing. It’s everything I could have dreamed as a sixteen-year-old kid whose entire adolescence was shaped by my decision to choose John Cusack as my romantic comedy avatar. I bought a trench coat, learned to ski and dreamed of talking about music with like-minded individuals while lamenting my past relationship woes and making very specific lists.

Instead I ended up working at blockbuster trying not to bite off my own tongue after hearing four people a day talk about how larry the cable guy is the voice of our generation. But if you are like me and you’re always carrying a satchel full of nerd obsessions in your pocket, Strange Loop Records is a great place to spend your time and money.

I sat down with a couple of employees of the shop for the next episode of the SqueezeCast. Which will go up at the end of this month.

In otter news…


The website is getting bigger. More people are contributing and we have a handful of big projects coming up.

We have a new blog from a person whose hand I can often be found holding. Sandpaper, by Captain Ladyface.

All new SqueezeCast, SqueezeBlogs, Poor & 24, and Alphamom to come.

The one I’m most excited about is an ongoing series from writer, artist and #Tofus creator Drew Rogers I can’t tell you a whole lot just yet, but I can show you this:

and tell you that we’ll be talking about it in the new squeezecast episode as well….

I’m at work right now… I should really be doing more. I mean, I’m kind of ahead at the moment. That’s why I decided to write this, but I should really shift focus…
