These things have very little to do with each other, but I want to tell you about them all!
I could be accused of throwing the word favorite around too liberally, but I really mean it when I say that WTF with Marc Maron is one of my favorite podcasts and it has been for a couple years now. This is not a bold statement–it’s the favorite podcast of many people. Marc is a comedian and amazing interviewer and he talks to interesting people and often apologizes to them for things he’s done in the past. There’s just this whole thing to Marc that it’s hard to explain, but you would understand if you listened to the podcast.
I heard a couple weeks ago that there was going to be a live taping of WTF in LA, so I bought a ticket immediately (it was only $10!!). Tuesday was the night, and of course I got lost trying to find the theater, because it just looked like an empty building. I walked in right when it was starting and had to stand for the two hour show. But but but, it was awesome. Moby–like, Moby–was standing next to me for a while before he went on stage. The show was hilarious. And I don’t know why I always expect to feel out of place at comedy shows, but I felt like I belonged in that tiny theater.
Next up: The Thrilling Adventure Hour.
So, you know how I’ve been talking about going to Germany forever. Well, I got my passport last Friday, my boss approved the time off on Tuesday, and I bought a plane ticket a couple hours later. I’m going! Like, really soon. Less than a month from now: September 20-28th. I will be there on the one year anniversary of making this grand declaration.
I thought about going later in October, but then decided it was time to go and I just needed to get on a plane already. I have enough time to plan, but not enough time to freak out. I can’t wait, internet!
Nico: So, did you miss any days of VEDA?
Me: Of course not! Never have.
Tomorrow is the last day of #VEDA 2012. My favorite part of #VEDA is watching people make new friends. It’s kind of a weird experience to see people you know separately form connections with each other. I have really loved our topics this year, and I’m constantly amazed at the creative things my friends come up with.
Vlogging is something I do for funsies. I don’t take it as seriously as I do writing. But, my vlogs have improved over the years, and even though most of them are recorded and edited in as little time as possible, I’m proud of a lot of the videos I made this year. Just another side effect of #VEDA.
