I saw Joel McHale last week. Bo Burnham opened for him. I thought he was very good. He sings lots of odd songs and is only 17.
I was browsing the iTunes Podcast Directory looking for some new ones to listen to. I wound up adding a bunch of NPR podcasts. Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! is the best of the bunch. Its weekly, on Saturdays, look at news items from the past week with a sense of humor.
New David Sedaris in The New Yorker. Not my favorite, its all about smoking. Still, its David Sedaris, so its worth reading.
Photoshopping what each candidate would look like in 4 years.
Police Log from The Daily Collegian. Always one of my favorite parts of the paper, this one doesn’t disappoint.
One of my softball teammates’ man cave was featured on a PSU blog this week.
Some Lists …
Philly is #1 place to live for new grads.
Top 50 comedy sketches. #50 is cowbell. So either the list is terrible or there are about 40 hilarious sketches Iâ€™ve never seen.
Top 50 TV Shows of All Time – See how far you get until you have to stop because you realize the list is worthless. I got to #49. Then I flipped to #48 and they redeemed themselves.
