"I'm the product of the age of narcotics which means I'm dope like the pills y'all swallow..."
Our pals at the wonderful comedy podcast Superego have put out a special bonus episode that features a sketch Jordan and I helped with called Amigos Auto Insurance. It was inspired by my horror at the commercials on Los Angeles hip-hop oldies station KDAY. The bonus episode is two bucks, but it's worth every penny. It's full of Superego's bizarre names and nonsense phrases and other wonderful stuff.
I had the chance to talk with Tim League, the founder of the Alamo Draft House, the legendary theater in Texas - and its film distribution wing, which distributed Four Lions. Here's the clip, from The Grid - you can check out more videos on the show's site, including pieces by Jordan Morris. You can also watch it Thursdays at 7:45 on IFC.

In case you've been living UNDER A ROCK, I've been hosting an IFC show called The Grid, and Jordan has been a regular contributor. Above, one of his great segments, on a very sad product called Gamer Grub.
Watch! Thursdays, 7:45 PM Eastern / 4:45 Pacific.
As some might know, I've been hosting the show "The Grid," which airs Thursdays at 7:45 Eastern / 4:45 Pacific on IFC. Above, you can check out an interview I did there with Julian Nitzberg, the director of "The Wild & Wonderful Whites of West Virginia," a terrifying documentary about a completely out-of-control family of party animal grifters. That's also kind of amusing. And amazing. And definitely tough to describe.
Below: Jordan's first piece for the show. He covered the "Boobs & Blood Film Festival," which celebrates exploitation movies of all kinds.
