It’s Katie Fisher Day, which is officially, objectively the sweetest celebration of a life well lived. Katie was tragically killed and her dear brother Matt decided to share her generosity by encouraging others to 1) Bake cookies & 2) Share them with someone you love. If you want to learn more about Katie and Matt, he wrote a touching tribute on Modern Loss.
Are you ready for Katie Fisher Day? Bake cookies and send love!
Oh snap! Katie Fisher Day is tomorrow. Naomi and I are baking these pudding chocolate chip cookie things for our parents/my sister. That slash doesn’t mean our parents are the same as my sister, but rather that adding an “and” seemed clunky. Anyway, everyone should do this.
I thought I’d start experimenting with some different ways to promote the show like making memes of fun things said during the episodes. Here’s one from the coming episode with Josh Patten. Listen to the full thing Thursday!
As we approach the most popular and potentially world-changing American holiday, Katie Fisher Day, we hold a town-hall meeting where policy experts, chefs, and celebrities come together to discuss the potential and perils of the chocolate chip cookie.
Here’s the theme for the latest Beginnings segment “Idee Fixe” which debuts in Monday’s episode. It features sweet trumpet by Dan Fox.
Some people have asked, and all the music - except the main theme song, which is by the band Savoir Adore - is by me, including the bed music for part two. And most of the songs can be downloaded here for free!
My dear love’s new webseries for Above Average came out today, and she’s great! Episodes today, tomorrow and Thursday leading up to the show’s return. And if you’ve never seen Scandal, the series is funny still. Here’s what I do know about the show from the episodes I watched: Fitz goes down on Olivia a lot. There’s none of that in the webseries, though maybe that can be an episode of season two. I’m pitching that right now, Naomi, Olivia has to deal with an everyday crisis while Fitz performs oral sex on her. Think about it! Have your people call my cats. (our cats)
Hey guys! If you follow the Wrestling Team tumblr, and not the Beginnings tumblr and you like Beginnings, please follow it! It’s separate, and I’d be grateful if you clicked the above link and followed!
I’m really proud of what the show’s become, and I’d like to get the word out to more people. And hey, while I’m asking you, my faithful friends, for help, maybe you could leave a review on iTunes or reblog this to help spread the word. You have my thanks!
Lot of awesome stuff coming up including an interview with one of my favorite comedy people, so stay tuned!
A new Guided By Voices video came out last week, and it reminded me of this fake GBV song Mark and I made a few years ago along with a faux-1990s lo-fi video that was supposed to recall industrial Dayton. Our song is actually pretty good and surprisingly not far removed from a real GBV song. Why not give “Cunnilingus Riffs” a listen?
