Episode 67 of Dave Hill's Podcasting Incident is here with guns blazing as I sit down with Adam Stone, one of half of the twin-based comedic duo Stone and Stone, to talk about what it's like to be a Stone alone, death, what it's like to be a 65 year-old man trapped in a 30 year-old man's body, the mysterious box of sex toys that showed up at my home shortly before his arrival, threesomes, what is was like meeting Tom Cruise, and about 500 other topics most people can't even handle. I also talk about why you should totally donate to the MaxFunDrive, which is totally happening right now (Go to maxfun.org/donate to make it happen!), answer questions from you, the sexy, sexy listener, check in with my secretary Shaina Feinberg, and hand Ian Ball the reins as he brings it on home with his hot Hot Jamz. For more information on this podcast and other Dave-related topics, please visit my website at www.davehillonline.com and follow me on Twitter at @mrdavehill. Thanks so much. You are the best and I mean it.
Harry and Dan are best friends who grew up together in New York state. After college Harry took a chance and moved to LA – a move he thinks Dan should make now. Their mutual friend Sammy insists there are plenty of reasons for Harry to stay put, and Dan sees wisdom in both positions. Is the west coast the best coast for Dan, or would he do better sticking to New York? Only one man can decide.
We don't do a lot of wrestling coverage here at MaximumFun.org, but this is genuinely fun stuff. Our friend Charlie Todd (the founder of Improv Everywhere) runs a comedy wrestling league at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York called UCBW. This week wrestling legend Mick Foley stopped by to do a little comedy, but then he got wrapped up in the grand finale. You can find further details at The Apiary and at Charlie's blog.
An artist named Josh Dorman emailed me from New York a month or two ago. He told me that he used to listen to music while he worked, but he'd spent the past few months listening to nothing but The Sound of Young America.
Podcasts are popular among those working in visual fields, especially lonely ones where people work solo and crave human voices. I do get an email like this from time to time, and it's always nice to hear. Not usually, though, am I so struck by the work. Dorman's paintings are beautiful, a sort of visual wunderkammer, with archaic illustration aesthetics and painting techniques getting all mixed up with maps and print and gorgeous palettes.
His show, Lost Divers, runs for about another month at Mary Ryan Gallery in New York. They're at 527 W. 26th St., and they're open pretty regular hours. I wish I was in NYC so I could take a look in person.
Over at my other website, Put This On, we just posted this video. Our intrepid correspondent Dave Hill visited New York Fashion Week, and returned with this fascinating report.
Seriously: you want to watch this.
