The Return of Pee Wee Herman, Live @ Henry Fonda

He is suiting up again this November to say "I am the luckiest boy in the world.... I 'm even luckier... than you!" "I know you are, but what am I"

From Groundlings comedy to Cheech & Chong films (the burger guy) to his initial, more "adult" comedy special on HBO to landing a long standing television series and films, Paul Reubens stretched Pee-Wee Herman to the maximum potential!

I am looking forward to catching one of the handfuls of performances this November.

Also, there is a Pee-Wee's Playhouse film slated for 2011. Chairy is being performed by Matt Damon ;)

That is a joke.

I am wondering how many folks got their Pee-Wee Herman tickets on August 11th. For these 17 shows at The Henry Fonda Theatre. I am going!

Link Of The Day: Left-Handers Day

I am ambidextrous but, for all of the Left-handed folks, today is your day!
There are helpful articles, tips, facts and a store on the site.
Side note: My mother is a "lefty".
Are you a left? Have you had any odd experiences?

Below are some of the areas where Left-Handers may have difficulty.
Crossing other peoples paths/position on pavement
Taking neighbours drink/bread roll at dining table
Direction of work, decorating/painting rooms
Being helped to put on a jacket
Receiving change
Putting children's socks and shoes on
Using your left-hand as a point of reference when giving directions
Feeling more comfortable sitting on the left hand side of things
Putting belts on upside down
Visualise things the opposite way around
Trouble opening/locking locks
Work stations flow the opposite way around
Organising files "back to front"

VOTD: Annie Lennox all over the place

This is what happens when San Francisco mashup artist, DJ EARWORM, blends hits of Annie Lennox's solo career.

He writes,
"I’ve always held a deep respect for Annie Lennox and her music, so when she gave me her multi-track masters to mash up, I was thrilled," he writes on his blog. "The task was to tie together all of her solo career into single song and video, and I could deconstruct it as much as I wanted! Woohoo!"

Songs included:
"Walking on Broken Glass"
"Little Bird"
"No More I Love You's"
"Waiting in Vain"
"Something So Right"
"Dark Road"
"Shining Light"

I will be spinning music Thursday at Kung Pao Kitty.

VOTD: Bat For Lashes - Sleep Alone

I was a HUGE HUGE fan and supporter of Natasha Khan's first BAT FOR LASHES album, "Fur & Gold".

Since the release of the follow-up album, "Two Suns", last year, I have not really been a big fan of the direction... or lack. I do, like this song, "Sleep Alone" and the video too, however, it is very similar to a mix of songs from "Fur & Gold", especially the vibe of "Trophy", which I have posted below.

Enjoy and sleep well... I shall report about my day tomorrow and broadcast news about my DJ gig this Thursday at Kung Pao Kitty. Good night!

Newgrounds Documentary & Comedy Central

This weekend will be an interesting experience. For a while I have been behind the scenes, however, today and tomorrow I will be filmed for two different pieces.

Today I am being filmed for a documentary on and tomorrow I am being filmed with Juliette Angeli (Red Light District) as we travel with a known comedian for a pilot for Comedy Central.

Besides preparations for tonight's final RevellShok FIRST FRIDAYS @ Medusa Lounge event, the camera and folks operating it will be pointing at me for the documentary, Everything By Everyone, focusing on the history of

Do you have memories of this website, which paved the way for other portal sites to follow such as youtube? Do you recall the FDA stickers in your city? The music videos? Telebubbies? Lavender Hill Mob? The first Portal entries? Pico?

If you have any memories, thoughts or comments regarding Newgrounds and FDA, please share and I will hopefully get to review and incoporate your thoughts while I am interviewed.

dassa me in the white n brown... This is from the FDA live performance at The Trocadero in Philadelphia, Summer 2000 at the wild Fda/Newgrounds party. Shortly after the pimpified began, the energy of the audience and ours grew to wild heights and a candy-flinging battle began with much hilarity!

Everything By Everyone - directed by Nathan Kuruna

If you have any notions of attending a fantastic party in Los Angeles, you may want to join us... FREE entry before 10pm with RSVP
There will a special tribute in the evening to John Hughes for not only creating some amazingly memorable films with timeless characters, forging lingo upon the students of the 80s and bringing up the bratpack but for bringing underground music to the forefront and helping pound the culture into a staple that has recurred since. I thank you, The Clash thanks you, Thompson Twins thank you and Wham U.K. thanks you too! R.I.P. John Hughes!

VOTD: V Returns - Robert Englund's past resurfaces again

I have had this sitting for a week and during my lunch break, I have decided to spend a few moments here on

We all recall Robert Englund's horrifying yet campy role as Freddy in the series of A Nightmare On Elm Street films.
Bad News Bears teen actor turned Watchmen hero and sex offender in Little Children, Jackie Earle Haley, as most of us know by now, fills the shoes, striped shirt, hat and claws this time around... Also resurfacing from Robert Englund's past is V.

I occasionally enjoyed the show, I had the large action figure, etc. Now we have a new version coming to television/ HULU and this will be joining the onslaught of visitor/ alien films such as District 9.

Below is the trailer for the new V series pilot. You may recognize Elizabeth Mitchell who plays Dr. Juliet Burke on LOST

More on V:
