okay reggie.

This summer a comedian toured with Conan O'Brien all over the country. Once Conan landed at TBS, that same comedian performed on his show. This was my first exposure to Reggie Watts. I loved it, but I didn't search him out. Last week, Reggie appeared on Conan again. This time I decided I would check to see what this dude was all about.

I discovered a genius at work.

Reggie is definitely not for the common stand-up crowd. But if you are curious, check out his website here: reggiewatts.com. I just finished watching "Why Shit So Crazy?" the DVD he released in 2010, and goddamn, the guy had me crying with laughter.

Again, not for everyone. Definitely for me.

The Black Keys get exploitive

I am loving the current obsession with Grindhouse style media. First it was The Black Mamba short film and now this. Cheers boys, you always do me proud.
