Ugh. Technology, guys. So many different things going on. Do I upload New York City photos to Facebook or to Flickr? Both? Okay. The people are here on Facebook, and the landmarks are here on Flickr. Both.
I don't know what to say about the trip. My scheduled events did not disappoint. The Upright Citizens Brigade ASSSSCAT improv -- featuring Horatio Sanz, Rob Riggle, and Bobby Moynihan, among others -- was riotously funny. The $10 entry fee is absurdly cheap for an hour and a half of top shelf absurdity: uber-heterosexual males auditioning for "Grease", Jews at a Christmas party, two strangers meeting at a urinal and discovering they have similar-looking penises ("Is this the guy you were talking about? Okay, I've got to go, but I still wanna see your dick later, alright?"). Superb, and cheaper than a movie. If you're curious what it's like, here's a video I have not yet watched:
The Fleet Foxes concert was nice, and surprisingly gorgeous -- I thought they were more of a studio band. I took a photo, but there are better ones around.
Seeing Conan O'Brien was surreal. When I watched the show air a few hours later, I noticed it wasn't all that great, but that didn't really matter. What mattered is that I got into the studio to see the show (and the man) that has influenced my sense of humor (read: from whom I have stolen the most quotes) more than any except The Simpsons. (Or you could consider it a wash, since he wrote for The Simpsons.)
Here are the best bits, or you can watch the entire show:
Also, I had a marvelous time with my hosts, who subscribe to VH1 Classic, which allowed me to see Blue Oyster Cult's "Burnin' For You" video. I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to be ridiculous, but MISSION FAILED. Please promise me you'll watch this until the end. No? Then promise you'll watch to the 3:25 mark. PROMISE.
