What cartoon character would you most like to have sex with? And you can’t say Jafar from Aladdin, because that’s totally mine.
Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I’ve never made out with a fish woman before. All kinds of other women, but no fish.

You went to the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. How did you possibly survive four long years of being entrenched with dirty hippies?
A steady regime of marijuana. That helped. I too am a dirty hippie. But I’m different, because I believe in soap — in that I believe it exists.

Finally, finally, the New Kids on the Block are reuniting! How do you think their first live show will go down?
Hopefully in a ball of flames.

What do you think about “vegetarians” who eat fish?
I think it’s bullshit. I’m totally okay with vegetarians who want to make out with fish women, though, as long as I can watch.

    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .

    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

  •   BEAT THE TWEET  |  July 22, 2009
    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other. Instead, I find myself struggling to balance my beer between my knees and my overstocked paper plate on my thigh as I furiously poke at my BlackBerry.
