jacuzzi comedy night at the starline

sunday, march 27 brings us the second jacuzzi comedy night at the starline. i went to the first one and had a blast. it was a good mix of local comedians and some bigger names from l.a. and beyond.

here's a little message from boney beezly, who's putting it all together:

Hop in The Jacuzzi with headliner RORY SCOVEL. Rory is definitely exploding onto the national scene. In the last few months this dude has performed on LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON and COMEDY CENTRAL's "LIVE FROM GOTHAM" He's preparing to release his first CD ...BUT FIRST he's swinging through Fresno to share his special brand of drug induced humor with The Tower District.

Of Course we'll be featureing 5 other top notch performers from all over the country bringing more fun than any of us deserve.

This show will fill up quickly so get in line early.
Feel the Bubbles, babies.

-Uncle Boney

$5 + 1 drink minimum.
Show starts at 9pm sharp!

pecha kucha 10

it's a tiny little picture, but it's worth doing. check out pecha kucha on monday night down @ fulton 55. i'm excited about it because the new venue will allow more people to come out, and not be jammed up. you see, many of the past pecha kuchas were standing room only over at the starline, and that's kept people, like me, away. but maybe this time i'll be there.

more info

Come join Creative Fresno for the 10th volume of PechaKucha Night Fresno. This time we will focus on Taste. Tasteful / Tasteless? You be the judge.

We will also be at a new venue. The hippest mid-sized venue in Fresno, Fulton 55. We have grown into it.

$5 admission, $3 CF member

21 and over

mardi gras 2011 recap

dude, yesterday was mardi gras. i went and...watched tv. seriously, this was the first year in forever that i didn't go out for mardi gras. not at all. admittedly, there were many circumstances in the decision to stay home and go to sleep before midnight, including, but not limited to:
1. allergies. i was super stuffed up yesterday at points, and then sloppy runny nose at others. and sneezing.
2. tired of the "rookies". for real, these public drinking holidays (mardi gras, st. paddys, cinco de mayo, thanksgiving) sorta suck now. maybe they always sucked, but it just seems like every bar is super jammed up with knuckleheads ordering bud lights and tequila shots. i'm not trying to stand in line for 15 minutes for overpriced, small, plastic cups, all the while seeing skanks and knuckleheads eyeball me like they want to fight.
3. the scene isn't as good any more. this isn't me being an elitist, it was better in my day type. all i know is that the environment used to be a little more loose, you could walk around a little freer, even though there was always a heavy police presence. through problems and their "solutions," the tower mardi gras has become pretty restricted, which has made reason #2 a bit worse. so, if the spot you're at isn't that good, you're sort of stuck. but, kudos to many local establishments trying to make the spots nice (landmark had viper city brass, audie's had dj bradley + others, etc).
4. i'm older, even if i'm not wiser. hey, it happens. and it seemed like a lot of my friends were on the same page last night. chillin instead of being out there at the celebration.

will i go out next year? who knows? will i go out on st. paddy's? we'll see next week.

in the meantime, click on over to my coworker al's blog, and read a little piece that he wrote about women's history month and gender equality.

the placebo effect

interesting little video from a person using the handle the professor funk. it's about 3 minutes long, and deals with the idea of placebos vs placebos.

this is very interesting to me, especially the idea of placebo and sport. perhaps i'll have to do some reading on the topic.
