OK, this is more like it...stereotypically boring.  Got it...just as expected.  You don't even need to look at the third article.

Most of you couldn’t make it to see my first stand-up set in person.  Some of you asked to hear it anyway.  Here it is.

Posting this could be the most egotistical thing I’ve ever done…but it’s also a moment of ‘personal history’.  I’ve loved comedy since I was a little, skinny, idiot of a kid.  Now as a skinny idiot of an adult, I finally considered it as something that I could possibly pull off (or at least I wanted to try).  I took a quick course at Curious Comedy Theater with Gabe Dinger, a local favorite of mine.  Six weeks later, there I was onstage…giving people a moment of my own ‘personal history’.  At this point, I’m planning on continuing down the stand-up path (hence the cocky ‘part 1’ in the title of this episode).  Let’s see where this goes–strange times are ahead for sure…I can’t wait!

P.S. I’m sorry the sound quality is not the best (pretty good for an iPod™ audio recording device onstage, though).

Stay tuned for the next ‘portlandians’ for a bit of investigative journalism, perhaps?…

Nice work, Washington Post…You move me.

 

 

 

Portugal celebrates its 10 year anniversary of decriminalizing drugs, and their positive results further suggest the US War on Drugs is a waste of time and money:

Sometimes I just run out of time…but the desperation makes me come up with an idea: 

 

I’m starting an occasional series of ‘Minisodes’ called, “You’ve Gone Too Far!”

These will give me a reason to use things I think are maybe ‘a bit much’ without a disclaimer, but still funny.
This first one is a piece I cut out of the Donovan episode–Maybe you’ll hear why.

 

 

Next up:

A full length, real-deal, on the heavier side, ‘portlandians’ episode called, 

The Deathpisode: How US Culture Confronts Death

(…and how that made my ‘friend’ delete an entire conversation from Facebook)(part1)”

 

 

For now, try to enjoy the first ‘You’ve Gone Too Far! Minisode’: #1-“That’s a Rude Phone, Mister.”
