Paul Scheer on Gothamist

for the Barbra Walters moment: Who’s the real Paul Scheer? What kind of
tree is he?

When I’m not performing or meeting new people, you can often find me crying in the dark with a bottle of Jack and a can of TAB.

I’d be one of those novelty plastic singing Christmas trees that wears sunglasses and dances when activated by music or sound."[Full interview]

I should be disgusted by this, right? By all accounts I should talk about how this objectifies women, blah blah blah but I’m going to be honest with you for a minute.  I keep making Jessica shake her rump over and over again. I’m mesmerized. So I figured, maybe…just maybe one of you would find this as entertaining as I did. May not be safe for work if your office has a problem with blondes in pink bikinis.[link]

Between You and Me



"Seen by over 30,000 people online this 4 min long film was shot with
a still camera. A girl on her day off takes a hike through the streets
of New York. As she runs she takes photographs of stuff on her way.
She’s assaulted in the evening and looses the camera. The "good guy"
who tried to save her uses the camera as his only clue to where she
might live.

This, and other films written and directed by Patryk Rebisz can be found on his web site:"

Add this short film, Between You and Me to the list of things you have to watch today. Rebisz shot the whole film with a Canon 20D digital STILL camera.
