Where Do You Go, My Funkely

Ever not see people and you feel like it's been maybe a month, but really it's been a year and a half?
This just happened to me at The Four Faced Liar and I realized, I must've been doing something with myself.
Here's what I came up with:

I tried online dating...

and as you can see it makes me retract my head and talk out of the side of my mouth as if I had a stroke.

I advocated for women's rights in a rape PSA (Thanks to 3rd Wheel Comedy's Annie Solstad for the Invite)

I've tumbled for newnownext
And of course, hung out with some queens..

I've gone to Spa Castle 
My happy place.

I've spent time at home.

I've gone to and am going to be in weddings. 

And I am still doing stand-up here and there, every Tuesday night at the Treehouse, still.

But I haven't blogged much for myself. I'm not saying that is going to change, but In figured I might as well say where I've been, it's only decent. 

If you're ever on Twitter you can find me:
@ILuvTVMoreThanU - where I live tweet TV shows for myself
@NewNowNext -where I live tweet TV shows for money

Oh, and in case you were wondering, this blog is totally titled after this song:
La Bouche's Where Do You Go, My Lovely

I No Longer Sit and Memorize Lyrics

I remember when I was 13, sitting in my bedroom with the door closed and the music blasting, reading liner notes like my life depended on it.
I was obsessed with finding new music. Music that was on the radio. Music that wasn't on the radio. Music that wasn't part of the main stream...
That's right, ska, industrial, and even some hardcore punk tracks would rotate on my 6-disc changer.

I told myself, "I love music so much. I'm never going to be one of those lame adults that just listens to what they listened to in high school and college. I'm not gonna be the person who only knows new music because it's what MTV or some TV show told them to like."

And today, while I was listening to Poe on Spotify and reading Lady Gaga tweets I realized the inevitable; I've become that adult.

I know every word of Weezer's blue album, but I had no idea there was a red album released along the way.

Where did I fall off the music band wagon? How did I get so far removed from the basement punk shows?

I grew up, that's how. I don't have the luxury of sitting around listening to music for hours upon hours... there's TV to watch.

My 14 year old niece is no help. She loves the 90s and other classic rock. Don't get me wrong, it makes her Aunt Sue proud when she tells me 'fun facts' about Nirvana as if I didn't live, eat and breath them when I was her age. I was just hoping she'd be my lifeline into what's new.

As for the basement punk shows, I've gone to some in recent years, thanks to my fantastically musical pals who are in kick ass bands. But, I don't spend time looking for shows in zines any longer.
Probably because no one puts out zines anymore. Probably because there are no record stores anymore.

As you grow older you change, and sure parts of that suck. I guess I'm just glad that when I was a teen consuming every band that I could I cast a wide net and got some great angsty music that helps me feel like a kid again when I need it.

New Weekly Feature on I Love TV More Than You

If you've missed my weekly TV and movie recaps that I used to do on The Screening Room, don't fret a minute more. I've started a weekly blog on I Love TV More Than You. It recaps and highlights the best, worst, and most interesting things I've noticed while watching TV all week.

Don't worry, it won't be all about HIMYM repeats, even though that is how I spend the majority of my time each week.

I hope you enjoy, comment, and check back every week for Funke Fridays!

Appearance on NY1

I was interviewed about the new club in my neighborhood, The Laughing Devil in LIC.
No, it wasn't Pat Kiernan, but it was Queens, there's that!
