Metapost: The Internet: STILL BEING READ ALOUD

This is yet another reminder to Baltimore-regional folk that your have the unique opportunity to see hilarious live acts based on the Internet, the very Internet on which you’re reading this text! On this coming Sunday, February 16! In downtown Baltimore! Hosted by me, Comics Curmudgeon Josh Fruhlinger, plus Rifftrax’s Conor Lastowka! Hilarity includes:

  • Wikipedia movie pitch madness
  • Robotic status updates gone mad
  • Secret emails that only Hollywood insiders receive
  • WikiFur drama
  • Children arguing with adults
  • People who you don’t want to date even though they want to date you
  • Craigslist polymorphous perversity
  • Improvised riffing on ALL of the above
  • The glory and pageantry of CAT MASSAGE
  • Plus a [Citation Needed] giveaway, and also an opportunity for us to “give away” the book to you, in exchange for money, so it’s really more “selling” the book, but wouldn’t that be fun, and we’ll even sign it for you?

Anyway, you should come, here’s the Facebook event, etc.

And if you’re wondering, “How can I find out about Josh-related performances like this if I forget to check out the Comics Curmudgeon”: well, I don’t want to be all trendy, but you might want to follow Josh on the social media whosit of your choice:

    Looking at all the social media that’s listed there, it’s a good thing for “cut and paste.” It also reminds me of Jeff Redfern’s Sunday comic, when he was working on all of his Social media.

    Speaking of Doonesbury, my condolences to Gary Trudeau and his family at this time.

    The Internet is still being read aloud. I can hear it, at a whisper, everywhere. Sometimes I can even make out a word, usually “cat”, or “teen.” The readers of the Internet are never silent — I feel that I must scream or die! and now –again! –hark! louder! louder! louder! louder! It is the reading of the hideous Internet!

    Cat Massage – I haven’t seen that vid in ages. Crazy stuff.

    @Sequitur (#10): I know, but the irritation lingers on.

    @Sequitur (#12): I do not care for Mr. Gottfried’s comic stylings. He is irritating. But his version of the “Aristocrats” joke, in the eponymous 2005 movie is transcendent. He was born to tell that joke, and I don’t think anyone has ever told it, in its full horrid scatological splendor, better.

    // If you haven’t heard it you can google it, and you should. I have yet some small shreds of decency yet, and I cannot bring myself to link to it.

    I would pay good money to go to a phone book reading (or any reading) by James Earl Jones. I was hoping that PBS would use it for a fund-raiser, after bringing up the subject on the “Square One” television show.

    How bad could it be? Even Bob Saget tells the joke.

    James Earl Jones was great on The Big Bang Theory.

    FW: A comic-buying junket to China! That would sure pep up this strip. Just imagine the characters hanging around in some dilapidated noodle shop full of suspicious characters hawking possibly forged comic books, instead of their usual pizza-pushing haunt full of suspicious characters. Terry and the Pirates tribute!

    MT: Mark is shooting hand-held in the dark? It doesn’t look like his old rangefinder has a flash.

    I’d like to get a subscription to Woods and Wildlife to read some of those good stories. “We were camping on the beach and we saw a raccoon!”

    MW: I’m never sure which is more bizarre, the stories with characters who just appear and then disappear again, or the ones with the permanent cast.

    @Elk Meadow (#7): I thought you were offering condolences for Trudeau having to go to Vero Beach. Lord knows, no one deserves that.
