Community-a-Thon

“I think if you say stop, he’ll say Hammertime.”
-Dean Pelton on Community, “Football, Feminism, and You” (season 1, episode 6)

Now that I have my tickets set, it’s time to make sure that all you locals know that Marc Maron will be headlining the Fringe Festival here in Rochester this September. He’s going to be at the Eastman Theatre, which means not only do I get to see Marc perform in my hometown, but I can walk to the show from my apartment. I *knew* moving here was a good idea.

In other WTF-related news, one of the things I’ve been working on this summer is watching season 1 of Community. I used to catch episodes of this from time-to-time at the gym and always found it amusing, but I’m appreciating its intricacy a lot more watching it from the beginning. This has also spurred me to go back to listen and, in some cases, relisten to all the WTF episodes that have to do with Community, and there are a lot of them. Marc interviewed series creator Dan Harmon, and he also interviewed actors Gillian Jacobs, Joel McHale, Alison Brie, Ken Jeong, Jim Rash, and Donald Glover.

So, you know, that comedy obsession of mine is still intact. I think it’s just another way I cope with all the noise inside my head.

    Lucas must be in the grip of the Blerch, we must get him to run more.

    I’m trying. I’m going to bring my running stuff to the beach house, too, as I intend to keep up my routine there and also to pressure Lucas to keep up with me.

    My gosh I need that silence.
    Both Tech Boy and I have been talking about how we cannot WAIT to move, because we’ve decided to spring for a swimming pool… and to swim until we can’t hear the Blerch furhter.

    However, since Fair is also here right now, I just might look at some shoes…

    …blerchfurhter is clearly like an ├╝ber-blerch.

    Blerchfurhter made me laugh. I might start using it in everyday conversation, though it is likely to confuse people.

    A friend and I were talking about all the different ways we work to silence the Blerch. I think writing is another way I do so, as is playing the piano. Going out and trying new things. Travel. When it comes down to it, I think a lot of what I do is an effort to tell the Blerch to shut up and stop trying to ruin my life.
