One of my favorite bloggers gala darling has declared February Radical Self Love month. I was a bit down the other day and decided to read many of the Radical Self posts that gala had linked to and noticed that sometimes people posted photos that made them happy. So I thought “what types of photos would make me happy?” and did a Google image search for puppies. It might sound silly. You might think, what’s the big deal? I love dogs but I don’t normally seek them out (aside from playing with my own dog) because of my past. I wanted to be a vet tech but that didn’t work out and I’ve been very bummed about it. A friend recently suggested to me that maybe I could become a groomer instead. Maybe I’ll look into that later on but the point is that I’m trying to not put myself down for my shortcomings. I also made the above Seth Rogen collage last because making collages is a fun hobby I enjoy that that I always end up putting off. I would also like to get back into doing yoga regularly.

First of all, yes I am biased. I have been a Dane Cook fan since I caught his Comedy Central Presents episode in 2000. I signed up for his mailing list on his website and he was the sole reason I joined Myspace. The thing I’ve now realized is that is still one of my favorite things he has ever done. That and the sweater sketch from the 1st time he hosted Saturday Night Live.

Of course I follow him on twitter and happened to see a tweet by him about two weeks prior to tonight’s show advertising it. I’ve never had a chance to attend one of his shows live and $5 is definitely a bargain. If you don’t know what Ustream is, anyone can broadcast live on their webcam. Sometimes you can catch really great shows on there like the evening before last Thanksgiving when KISS put on a full show. This is the first Pay Per View event that has been hosted on UStream.

At about 6:30PM ET a comedian named Al Benson took a camera crew backstage so we could see people hanging around backstage at Dane’s live show. After not too long Cook joins him and 2 other people who later turn out to be the other two opening comedians for the show.

Then Benson sits down with Dane & everyone sends questions in, Benson reads, & Dane answers. Granted the Ustream chat was going pretty fast but I didn’t see any of the handles that this guy was reading off questions from. It was cool but nothing titilating was revealed. We did find out that Dane’s favorite movie is Goodfellas.

Then Cook had to go get ready so Benson started interviewing a lot of douchey people on the red carpet. This included bimbos who worked at a tanning salon, who were definitely getting their money’s worth and four 13 and 14 year old boys and girls who said they smoked marijuana.

Interspersed throughout were old clips of Dane performing at other shows which were pretty funny. The audio & video went out a few times but not too often.

The first comic up was Al Benson. I didn’t find much of his act funny and throughout his set and prior to he was somewhat racist to African Americans and Puerto Ricans.

Next up was the cute Nick Thune. He started off singing jokes which bored me, so I started reading a book. He did have one funny joke about sending people Starbucks gift cards without any money on them.

The last opener was Whitney Cummings. She was very funny but all of her humor was centered around dating. I feel that women comedians who focus solely on dating make men respect all female comedians less though. She looked really bad but I looked her up & she normally looks great. I think not looking your best in front of millions of people who are discovering you is a misstep.

I’m not going to give away Dane’s whole show as it’s a performance of his Isolated Incident tour which you can buy or rent the dvd of. First of all he looked great and had on one of those awesome angel wing back tee shirts. These were just a few high and lowlights to me. I did not enjoy a fairly long joke about urine and tons of stuff about masturbation. He interspersed bits of old beloved jokes such as “I Did My Best” and “The Pickles”. They weren’t the whole thing, more like a taste. I really enjoyed the “Twat Swatter”, “Black Baby” and “What Would Hilary Duff Do?” jokes.

The show was funny but Dane seems to be getting angrier and more vicious. The show dropped out and I had to log back into it 5 times so I missed some of the jokes. I have a great connection, so this wasn’t on my end. Ustream chat confirmed that a lot of people were going through this. Audio was all over the place during the show. I constantly had to readjust the volume as it would get really low or really loud for no reason.

After the show they aired some clips that appeared to be from this tour. Then Benson started interviewing people who are waiting to meet Dane. This was really boring and I had to login back in twice. Then they showed Dane meet people and take pictures with them while Benson interviewed people who were waiting. A quick search shows that 2 front row tickets and backstage passes were auctioned off for charity for this show for $2500.

Despite the technical problems this was a fun show. Ustream will probably work those bugs out for future events.

Carrie's Stoop on Sex and the City in Greenwich Village

Carrie's Stoop on Sex and the City in Greenwich Village

ON PEOPLE

People are horny and want to get laid. Just because they fuck you at the time doesn’t mean you’re special.

New Yorkers will give you directions.

If you cry they might give you a break on your computer repair bill.

Arguing is pointless.

Tipping is not just a city in China.

If someone collects something, don’t fuck with it.

Tell a celebrity what you enjoyed about their work. Don’t just tell them they’re hot, they already know that.

ON LITTLE PEOPLE (Children)

Don’t give little kids gum or suckers.

Don’t start answering “Why” questions for children or they will never stop. Also if you start playing with them be prepared to do that all day without ceasing.

ON LIFE (Random)

Most dogs/bugs do not want to bite you.

Learn when the liquor store and pizza places open/close. Save yourself time and stop asking me, I can’t magically make them open later.

Always bring enough change to the laundromat or be screwed as you wear damp scratchy clothing.

One day you will realize that you are literally crying over spilled milk. You will laugh, hard.

If things are really bad and you’re even a little tired, go to bed.

Money, Money, Money

ON FLEA MARKETS

The lower to the ground something is (usually) the cheaper it is.

Don’t set up earlier than 4AM or later than 9AM.

Avoid setting up at the ends of aisles. The middle is best. Even one space over from the end is better.

ON FOOD

Potted meat tastes better than Spam.

Always request extra ketchup or taco sauce.

ON DEALS

When buying anything online always do an internet search to find out if their is a free or reduced shipping code available (there usually is).

Don’t buy dog snacks at a Pet Store or Kmart. Target has a big variety at decent prices. Sometimes closeout stores like It’s A Buck or Big Lots have good buys on specialty items. Sometimes they are old though so inspect them first to make sure they aren’t dried out.

New plastic hampers work as bathroom garbage pails and vice versa.
