What’s up, internet? I’ve been a busy little Hughbear. Spreading the H(ugh)IV
virus love-drug. The other day I almost got arrested for doing comedy. That’s always fun. Making fun of cops is always a bad idea, it doesn’t matter about the whole “holding a microphone” part.
I’ve been performing like a machine. Make sure to check the “Upcoming Events” tab up top for full information on live comedy shows. I have also been updating Get Involved Comedy with tons of posts so you can find all of the best spots for laughter in the Tri-State area.
I have been featured on another website. EntertainMeLongIsland. Check it out!
Another project that I was on is my friend Rich’s podcast called My Take Radio. He had me on his “Behind the Mic” segment and we had a lot of fun. We talked for like 3 hours but he edited it down. Don’t worry. Even two talented guys like us can’t be entertaining for that long!
Lastly, Yonkers area be on the look for some radio time. My hetero life partner Mike Keegan and I will be joining a show to promote my gig on the 26th in Orange, NJ. It’s at a place called The Southern Comfort Cafe. Mike will be performing in the comedy contest portion of the show and I will be featuring on part of the “Boy I Gotcha Comedy Show.”
vaya con dios,
Guys, come on. Bro code?
Sometimes I have opinions on things. Other times I just shoot from the hip and say what I’m feeling at that exact second. Normally I will not argue about religion, conspiracy theories, time travel, politics and science with people because people are idiots. There is no use arguing silly things like facts. IT’S USELESS. I have also tried just being the devil’s advocate (which is a stupid term) and just debunked any argument they have. For example: Thermite at the Twin Towers? Uh, yeah. Thermite is used for welding and isn’t explosive. It’s for cutting if anything and there isn’t one I-beam that you can cut through to bring down skyscrapers. Stop getting your science from Breaking Bad, you child.
I don’t believe in silly conspiracy theories like 9/11 or who shot JFK but I do believe Milk causes cancer and won’t touch the vile farm swill. I also believe YouTube and Family Guy are destroying America’s attention span with lazy jokes and quick access to short videos of people getting hit in the head with shovels or puppies falling asleep.
Another theory I have is that people are full of self-sabotage and love to feel as if they are superior. Conflicting ideologies. ConHUGHscius says: When you throw dirt, you give up ground. If you have the secret to success, why share it?
Sad lil fella.
I spoke about this once before. Dealing with depression can be a lifelong battle. If not for you, then maybe someone you know and love. It’s a serious thing and often people are being discredited by someone calling them something like a pussy or over-sensitive. I can agree that sometimes people are hyper-sensitive sissies but you have to admit that there is such thing as life-crippling depression. Okay? Deal? Deal.
The counter argument to mental illness is that most of these mental illnesses are recently new. And follow me on this because I would agree with some of these people ranting about mental illness because modern medicine has recently had the luxury to spend more time on the brain and how it works thus giving titles to diseases that were once dismissed as witchcraft or demon possession. Yeah, there were no people with depression or ADHD in the 1600’s because those people were given full lobotomies, left to die of starvation in their beds or cooked in their front yards by a mob of angry villagers.
Humans are interesting creatures because we go against Darwinism, in a way. Obviously we have survived this long because we are very adaptable. It’s not the strongest that survive but the ones that are most willing (or able) to change. We harbor the weak. The strong protect the sickly and dying. We don’t just let people with down-syndrome get eaten by lions anymore. We don’t allow people with depression to commit suicide either. Strange, right? Those people who think ADHD or depression doesn’t exist are lucky because if they know someone who feels it first hand, they would be shamed into thinking differently.
“Seemed like a really good idea at the time, guys…”
Okay, this might come as a shock but I found an article from the Elite Daily that was written by a man. After first observation, I think the lady articles were written with a tad more testosterone but c’iest la vie.
The article is entitled “A Gentleman’s Take on Why Women Should Never Settle for Less Than They Deserve”. I don’t know, man…something about a Hispanic man bragging about his own accent really sends me in a seething Hulk-rage. The article caught my eye during some research for another post and because I am a gentleman, I agree with that title statement. Ladies should never settle for less than they deserve. However, I think ladies should also be realistic in what they deserve and I highly doubt he mentions that. If you couldn’t tell I write as I read the articles so I am forming my opinion as I am reading the damn thing. Is it professional? No. Is it more intimate? I feel so.
I think this is a perfect post-Valentine’s Day follow-up to what Anthony wrote yesterday on his rom-com sad sack similarities. Alliteration aside, let us get to it.
This article from the Huffington Post was sent to me by a friend. She said it was a lot like my article from the other day on Unrequited Love. I don’t see how anything someone else writes can be close to the genius that flows from these golden fingertips. When I type I grow a halo. However, I gave it a read. It’s a great read. So check it out and then promise to come back and read what I say, okay? You promise? Wait! Don’t leave me! Where are you going?! Good. Fine. You’re just like everyone else! My mother was right about you.
Thanks to Jen for the tip
