Oh my, this is some funny right here. Thank you internets.

I’d watch way more political tv if it were this good. Hearing these kids’ opinions on politics is hilarious and to be perfectly honest, some of them might have better ideas than the Republican candidates we’ve seen in recent years. New eps of Fresh Perspectives start up again March 29th (Thursday)!
Yesterday afternoon, an ambiguous post from The Morning Benders popped into my Facebook feed. It was simply “This will be the last post from The Morning Benders. Thank you all very much.” Understandably, fans were freaking out about a possible breakup and I was a little shocked because I really can’t imagine Chris Chu and his bandmates fighting. As it turns out the last post just means the band is changing it’s name to POP ETC. after having gone on tour in the UK and learning “benders” is a derogatory term for homosexuals. I think it’s a nice gesture seeing as how they never intended to harm anyone and the term has an entirely different meaning in the US. Their announcement is a good read with thoughts on keeping art interesting and yes, new music. I’m having a bit of an adjustment period to their new sound, but you can still count me in for their next tour. What do you think?
Isn’t it a great feeling when there’s an event you feel was created with you in mind? I mean it probably wasn’t, but that’s how I feel about The San Francisco Comedy & Burrito Festival. While it is still a Kickstarter project, the premise of combining laughs and burritos for a three day festival in October is nothing short of brilliant to me. I’m not exactly sure how this will play out, but I’m hoping I’ll be afforded the opportunity to be served a burrito at my seat and choke because I’m laughing so hard. As all good Kickstarter projects do, there’s an awesome video and quirky rewards for your pledges. For just $1, one of the organizers will picture you naked… you know, if you’re into it. C’mon people, let’s fund this one. Thanks Laurel Kate for the tip!
