The Millennial Wedding Announcement

24 Jan

 

Millenial Wedding Announcement

 

Dear World:

In a bold display of independence, we (not our helicopter parents) are announcing our intention to marry partner and hold a wedding presentation to display our love (and like) for each other.

Where are we registered, you ask?

Why, thank you for inquiring!

We don’t believe in registering for a wedding presentation as we just aren’t into “things.” Like many Millennials, we subscribe to minimalism.

This is mostly because we lack the funds to buy cool stuff (thank you pathetic economy) but also because our heads explode when we see Granny’s living room and her floor-to-ceiling tchotchke collection.

We personally believe that everyone over the age of 40 is a hoarder and in need of a therapeutic intervention.

And so, instead of a cumbersome kitchen appliance or a random piece of cheesy art, perhaps you could buy us a generous gift certificate to Starbucks… that, or a house. We could use a house! (Is that a “thing?”) To be honest, we’re getting tired of living in our parents’ basements. We are incurring hearing damage due to the incessant hovering. […]

Movie Comedy – The Wicked Wit of The West

26 Dec

 

Love to laugh? Love old comedy movies?

Irv The Nerve

I recently discovered a gem of a book about screenwriter Irving Brecher entitled The Wicked Wit of the West: The last great Golden-Age screenwriter shares the hilarity and heartaches of working with Groucho, Garland, Gleason, Burns, Berle, Benny & many more.

Oy, that’s a mouthful!

Who is Irving Brecher you may ask?

Irving Brecher was a comedy writer and the only screenwriter to write two Marx Brothers moviesAt the Circus and Go Westall by himself. He also punched up The Wizard of Oz, wrote Shadow of the Thin ManZiegfeld Follies, and adapted musicals Bye Bye Birdie and Meet Me In St. Louis for film.

Harpo Marx called him “Irv the Nerve.”

Groucho Marx called him “The Wicked Wit of the West.”

Author, folk journalist, and radioman extraordinaire Hank Rosenfeld spent six years getting to know Irving while they collaborated on this delightful memoir.

Happy Holidays: Eating Tips To Ignore

25 Nov

 

The holidays are upon us… actually, they are in our face.

Holiday Advice Food Humor

There is a ton of advice out there on how not to overeat on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, and every other holiday you can imagine.

Tips like, “NO seconds,” “Drink ONLY water,” “During your meal, go to the bathroom, look in the mirror, and guilt yourself about how many calories you’re taking in,” “Fill up on celery and radishes – stay away from the dip,” and “Do planks and push-ups between courses.”

Pull-ease! Gratification is the whole point.
