Remembrance Day

It's Remembrance Day, and in addition to remembering all of our fallen soldiers and heroes, I would also like to remember some of my favourite comedians. The following few have shaped my life since I was just a weee girl on a small island with no cable, watching comic relief on VHS that my granddad had recorded from his giant 6 meter Satellite that was somehow taped onto our woodshed.

George Carlin.... Man of MANY words...

The incredible Chris Farley

And one of my all time favourites....

Twitter Justifies It's Existence

At least to one guy and 700,00 followers.

Shit my dad says, or @shitmydadsays (english?), is getting a TV show.

The producers behind Will & Grace have signed on to produce the adaptation of this Twitter success story into a narrative family comedy on CBS.

Wondering how this happened? Are you really surprised?

Worse things have found shocking success on TV.

So the story goes a little something like this...

A guy named Justin moved back in with his parents, including his 73-year-old dad who says randomly ridiculous nuggets of wisdom quite regularly.

He tweets them.

I have crazy relatives! Why did I go to university?

Potential 2 second fame was right there in front of me all along.

Lady GaGa gets it done

Check it out, hot off the press, or the editing room computer.

Matt Good

I love Matthew Good like the abusive father I never had. I think most people know him for his 90s hits, but the guy has put out a lot of material since then (seven albums or EPs this decade), and he's one of the most underrated songwriters there is, in my opinion. Now, trust me when I say I mean this as a compliment: there's nothing I want to listen to more when I'm feeling like hanging myself than some Matt Good. The best cure for depression is to wallow in it, I always say. The show last night at The Centre was nothing less than I expect from one of his shows, and I've seen a lot of them: the music (especially the vocals) were tight as fuck, Matt cracked some jokes, and the crowd yelled the names of obscure songs. Fortunately, he is one artist who actually does reach deep into the back catalogue with frequency, so everyone leaves the room happy.
