Standup/Storytelling 12" Vinyl distributed by Dischord Records

My first album of standup and storytelling came out digitally in June of this year (previously) and I started an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funds to press a limited edition of the record onto hot pink vinyl. That campaign was fully funded, and the records are now in production. And as of today, venerated DC punk rock label Dischord Records (Fugazi, Minor Threat) will be distributing the 12" vinyl version of my album! You can preorder a copy here. [more inside]

Mk Mrc Grt Gn! A Disemvoweling Twitter Bot

Inspired by a tweet from (metafilter's own) Maciej Cegłowski, I made a dumb Twitter bot using Glitch one night that disemvowels 45's mouthspew on Twitter as if he were a dumb troll trying his best to annoy the mods. The resulting tweets are collected at @Dsmvwld_PTS. [more inside]

Men Say the Darndest Things (NSFW-ish)

I designed and animated this video which curates a cringe-worthy selection of funny and sad (and 100% real) comments left for Instagram models. While I didn't use the actual photos, the drawings of the models are probably NSFW, and the language used is... also interesting.

'And I Am Not Lying' - My first album of standup and storytelling

I'm a standup comic and storyteller in NYC, been a member of the blue for a long time. My stuff has been on 'This American Life' and The Moth's podcast - and my very first album of standup and storytelling just came out today! It's available on iTunes/Amazon/Google Play, and I'm also running an IndieGoGo to raise funds to press it on hot pink vinyl. You can also hear a sample track about my band with piano-playing chickens, and see video of another story featured on the album. [more inside]

Find out what's #TRENTing from a brash cartoon character

Short comedy video series: Trent is a sort of Max Headroom for the social media era — but only sort of. He lives inside the matrix, telling you what's #TRENTing, in a brash style — mixing a Scandinavian accent with a Brooklyn attitude. In this episode, Trent weighs in on the Ghost in the Shell controversy, the Vice President's rule about dining alone with women, and your search history being up for sale. WARNING: "Mature" language.

LinkedIn Thought Leadership Generator

I was interested in learning jquery at the same time I was feeling kind of irritated with all the 'thought leadership' articles flooding LinkedIn. So I made a generator that gives anyone industry influencer-level article ideas.

Nebula One, a cartoon set in space

I've created a fun and hopefully good-looking new animated series set in space. There are three short episodes, and they're all in one video. Later episodes — assuming I'll have the time and inclination to keep going — will reveal that the mission for these astronauts is establishing a sports franchise in space, for television. But for now, dodging space rocks and worrying about avatars takes up most of their time. Enjoy! [more inside]

all GRSSK to me

A fun, frivolous one-trick-pony Tumblr. Inspired by a Mediterranean restaurant in my neighborhood that swaps Δs for As and Σs for Es in their logo, this blog regularly publishes examples of swapped-in geometrically similar letters from various alphabets, regardless of the letters' phonetic similarity. In post descriptions, I also try and swap the original phonemes back in; thus GRΣΣK becomes GRSSK, and (mild) hilarity ensues. Submissions welcome! Shout-out to Bulgaroktonos for blog-naming inspiration.

Cookbook Title Generator

Today's bestselling cookbooks can seem a little formulaic. The titles start to sound the same. The success of one book begets sequels, riffs and shameless wannabes. With such nakedly formulaic titles, couldn't you assemble a cookbook title by slapping together some diet buzzwords, food trends and publishing tropes? Why, yes you could!

Meddling Auntie icebreaker comics for families

Bullies? Drugs? Puberty? Some topics are important to talk about but hard to bring up. For the past six years, I've been making comics for my niece to start conversations on tough subjects and soften harsh truths with cartoons. Now they're finally ready to share. Behold my total lack of qualifications. Appreciate the editing of Consultant Kristine Chester. Read the comics online or order hard copies for giving, sharing, and adding your own notes. No matter what, get motivated to break the ice with a kid you love. The only wrong way to talk about these things is not to talk about them at all.

Otherfoot: Only Pen and Paper Required

I put together a website dedicated to my all-time favorite game, Otherfoot (mentioned previously in my 2006 FPP about ink-and-paper games). Otherfoot is a card game, played with a newly-created homemade deck every time. Gameplay is similar to Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity (pre-dating the latter), with key differences laid out in the FAQ (and reposted below). The game concept was developed by friends of my brother, and I've derived a lot of joy from playing Otherfoot with old and new friends for more than 10 years. [more inside]
