Juggling videos with a narrative arc.

Most jugglers today post "look-what-I-can-do" videos. This month, I tried to buck the trend by creating a juggling video with short vignettes and concrete narrative arcs.

Horace Rumpole on "You're The Expert"

You're The Expert is a live show and podcast that makes academic research fun and accessible through comedy.

Comedy Video - More Rock, Less Talk

A comedy video about a Classic Rock radical vs. a Classic Rock moderate. We put a lot of work into it. It's five minutes long, which I realize is on the long side, so thanks for taking a look. [more inside]

Raging Titter Radio

This is probably as honest as I’ll ever be about what I’m trying to accomplish with my podcast, Raging Titter Radio. I have always had a lot of thoughts and I’m often overwhelmed by them. Since I was a kid, I imagined my thoughts as balloons, too many comic books I suppose. Anyway, I try to chase them down and grab them before they float away forever. The easiest way to hang onto them is to tie the strings together. If I can tie enough balloons together, I can float away. That’s Raging Titter Radio. Oh and there’s always a top notch indie band playing a great song that's thematically relevant. [more inside]

Hipster Holocaust: A Very Short Film

This horror comedy short I directed is an 80s slasher trailer found on an imaginary VHS tape for a film that doesn't exist. Probably NSFW.

BrainTripping: Markov-chain your own path through the words of famous people.

Step inside the "brain" of Jesus, the Pope, Kurt Cobain, or Tupac to come up with your own sentences and stories. Words are suggested based on the language patterns of the brain (and you are limited to their vocabulary). There's a learning curve, but once you get past it, hilarious times can be had. Read my introduction post or check out the tutorial to get started. [more inside]

WTF with Marc Maron: the Public Radio Show

WTF is a popular podcast hosted by comedian Marc Maron. He interviews comics (and once in a while non-comics) about their lives and how their minds work, and generates really amazing insights. Since I'm a public radio producer, I talked Marc into making a limited-run public radio series out of some of the best episodes of the show. My colleague Nick White helped. You can listen to (and review) the episodes at PRX.org.

The Bar Scene Webseries

I hope you'll check out www.thebarsceneseries.com, a new webseries about four twenty-somethings debating bar-appropriate "survey questions". Each webisode's survey question reveals a little more about each character and his/her own relationship woes. From preferred underwear on a partner, to theories of The One, this series is a light-hearted take on messy relationship and the healing salve of friends and beer.

"Music for Supervillains": Lab rock at its finest.

My buddy Doctor Pinkerton, mad scientist supreme, just released his latest album. It's fourteen tracks of genre-leaping silliness, with a comic-book style cover by yours truly. And if you can make it to the release party in New Orleans this Saturday, you can get a free comic book based on the album, too!
