The Crazy Garlic Woman
I am in the process of getting rid of some old blogs and making new ones. Here is one of my favorite posts from a blog in 2009: It was like any other Saturday in New York. I made plans, took the R train from Astoria going downtown, and then decided I was too tired to do what I had planned. This week I scheduled an improv practice session at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. I paid for it...
And here is Episode 4, Entourage.
This is Episode 3 of Behind the Steve. It is called, Meet Karl. I freaking loved filming this. Most fun I’ve had in New York. You can check out the entire series at www.funnyordie.com. Just search for Beind the Steve.

TWO YEARS! Whoa.
So September 30th, 2010 marks my two year anniversary in New York City. I am very proud of myself. The past 4 weeks or so have been great too.

Mustache Fuckin' with My Head
Do I keep it? Does it make me more artistic? Do I exploit it? Do girls like it? Will I ever have sex again? Does it make me memorable in a comedic sense? Do I look like a prestigious playa? Distinguished? Will I start a trend? Do I seem more spiritual? Am I transcending space and time? Do I look, um, gay? Do I? OR does it pigeonhole me as a semi-sleezy fat...
Brooklyn ain't so bad...
I’ve never really liked Brooklyn. Up until recently, I’ve only been to Williamsburg… which makes me feel like a really old man,even though I’m only 26. All the skinny assholes and their music beats. However, that was until this moment on the beach near the Brooklyn Bridge… I love New York City… and Brooklyn ain’t so bad either.
