Do you feel like I do? Weird? Thank goodness you're weird too!

Hey everyone! Hope your weekend is going well! I came across this clip a couple of years ago and thought it was pretty funny, especially if you have seen the Dateline To Catch A Predator series. Hey, you might have seen it also before, but what the heck see it again! The guy in the Primate parody has Chris Hansen's voice, tone and expression down! Enjoy!

While checking out some clips relating to TCAP, I came across this one. Kinda funny too, and an interesting premise. How do they find the (supposedly?!) underage actors for the set up scenes for the TCAP series?

Ha ha! Conan O'Brien is pretty funny!

Ok, enough of that! I'm feelin' kinda weird. Need some weird comedy. Here's some weird, funny comedians. The first is Steven Wright

Then next comedian is Mitch Hedberg. RIP. I came across this guy several years ago. When I first saw him, it may have been on Letterman or Conan and I thought he was blind! He just came across that way with the way he hardly looked at the crowd-he mostly looked down at the floor (actually you couldn't tell with those dark glasses!)He had a great"stoner"-like delivery and like Steven Wright he had material that makes you think. He's sorely missed.

Another Mitch clip

Zach Galifianakis is nuts! And he's funny too!

Aww, what the hell! Here are two more-just to show: Zach Galifianakis is nuts!

Ha ha! Flaming Arrows!

I have been tagged!

American Scot at http://americanscot.blogspot.com/ tagged me to write a post about 5 things I do to stay positive. This all comes from High Vibes at http://www.optimistlab.com/.
I've never done this before man...! ( i feel like Cheech Marin in that one movie!)
anyway... Here are 5 of the ways I keep myself positive:

1. I like to listen to music-all kinds of music, but when I am down, I like to listen to "heavy" music. I know that sounds like an oxymoron-that heavy music like Iron Maiden or the Scorpions would get me feeling more positive again, but I think it is more like coffee with a child who has ADHD! The coffee is a stimulant that makes the kid with ADHD calmer-with me the heavy music makes me chill and calm down a little. You would think soft, or happy music would cheer me up-no! Weird!

2. If I am down, I like to go for a long drive. Possibly to a mountainous area or in the countryside. That usually gets me feeling more positive, and clears my thoughts.

3. I talk things over with a family member-my wife, my son, my mom etc. When you have another perspective on life, especially the people who really care about you, it really makes things clearer for you.

4. I recently did something really dumb financially (no it wasn't gambling!) and lost some money with a stupid mistake! When I realized that I had done this, I really stewed over it for a long time, until I remembered that there are people who are way, way, in worse shape than I ever have been. I know that this can be a cliche, but when you are thinking of yourself and your troubles, stopping to think about others who really have it bad can put things in perspective!

5. I'm with American Scot here: I think "pet therapy" can really help to bring one's positive vibes up! When I play with our dog for a while, it sure makes my mood better! We have funny looking dog that is half Pug, half Chihuahua, and maybe some Pekinese! (don't ask me how that came to be!) Maybe because she's so silly looking and cute, but anyway, our dog can help with the mood!

There's my 5 ways to get more positive!

Now I will tag these fine blogs!

Kathy, Kevin, Triumph, and strips. Sounds dirty.

Hi friends of comedy and humor! Hope your weekend is or was great! Mine was ok but I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to install a drip irrigation system. That was a pain in the butt, but, (ha ha) now its done and there's just a little fine tuning to do with it. Today I am going to post some comedians, one or two Triumph clips, and some more of my comics-I know they're stupid, but hey, they're an expression of my artistic side right? Let me know what you think! Even if you think they are absolute garbage!

The first clip is from a comedienne who I really like. This may be a controversial statement because from what I have heard, you either love her, or hate her! Kathy Griffin! I guess I really like her. I like the way she tells her stories about her interactions with the rich and famous and screwed up people she meets. Her sense of humor is great! I have been watching her show, "My Life On the D-List" on the Bravo channel and I can't believe the language she gets away with without them bleeping her! She's one of those comediennes that can make crude language funny though, unlike some other comics.

I wonder what you all think of her. Let me know. In fact, let me know who you think is your favorite comedian/enne! I'll let you know right now, I was never a fan of Sam Kinnison. I just don't think yelling in people's faces and making fun of starving people in Africa was funny. I don't like the "blue collar comedy" guys either too much. Carlos Mencia is horrible, but Joe Rogan is too. I can't stand anybody who makes fun of those who are the most defenseless-the terminally ill, and people with special needs, especially. Let me know who you like as a standup comedian.
Also let me know what you think about the comics strips I have "drawn."

Ok, ok, enough already! Where's the first clip!?

Kathy G talking about Mel Gibson, Barbara Walters etc.

Kathy on Ryan Seacrest and American Idol

Whitney Houston etc, etc.

Kevin James is a pretty darn funny guy on the "King of Queens" and he seems to be a pretty good standup comedian too!

As i had promised a while back- a few classic Triumph clips for your amusement.
Triumph outside the Michael Jackson trial.

With all the controversy regarding Ann Coulter recently, I couldn't help but add my two cents worth. (And another generic strip).
