Why I Hope 2012 Is/Isn’t the End of the World

January 4, 2012

So, apparently the whole wide world is going “bye-bye” on December 21, 2012. Don’t believe me? Mayans totally predicted this a billion years ago.

Now, while this fate seems harsh, I’d like to take this opportunity to take a look at some of the good things that could come from our impending doom. (I’m a glass-is-half-full kind of a guy.)

And, in case the planet doesn’t get its torch snuffed, I’ve included some good things that’ll come from life in 2013 and beyond…


The More Whatnot ‘Community’ Contest Winner Is…

September 6, 2011

I had a team of hardcore “Community” fans help me with the judging of the contest, and we’ve come to the conclusion that the winner of a “Community” Season 1 DVD is…Will Baer. Here’s his winning entry…

“Well usually on Thursday, a little before 8 I mix up a batch of riot punch, then I drink that and go work with my black surgeon best friend at the local hospital, and after work I like find banana stands and burn them down”

Apparently any fan of “Always Sunny,” “Scrubs” and “Arrested Development” should be watching “Community.” Congrats to Will and thanks to everyone who entered.

More Whatnot Contest: Why the Crap Aren’t You Watching ‘Community’?

July 28, 2011

As some of you may know, I appeared on Rob Cesternino’s “Rob Has a Podcast” er…podcast a few months ago to talk about CBS’s hit reality show “Survivor” and NBC’s cult favorite comedy “Community.”

Quick Question: Can you appear on a podcast if it’s only audio?

Odds are, due to Rob’s status as a “Survivor” favorite, that the majority of people listening to the podcast were there to hear about “Survivor.” At one point, Rob caught me off guard and asked me to give my best pitch as to why people should watch “Community.”

And I choked. I don’t remember what I said, but it was beyond stupid.


The Top 36 Characters in NBC’s Thursday Night Line-up

May 20, 2011

UPDATE: Every Oscar’s “Recently Deceased” montage has a ridiculous exclusion.  I have made a similar error. Ron Swanson from “Parks and Recreation” is that exclusion. I apologize.

It’s often said when somebody prominent leaves their field that, “Everyone else moves up a spot.” If that’s true, then everybody in NBC’s Thursday comedy line-up was bumped up a spot a few weeks ago when Steve Carell left “The Office.”

So, who’s the new number one? Keep reading to find out…

Note: I had originally considered doing a “20 Least Funny Characters on ’30 Rock'” list, but Tina Fey has contacts in the Philadelphia area and I didn’t want her coming after me.

Another Note: As with any list I make, this is based on my tastes today. This could very well change within the next few minutes. So, if you think Creed Bratton was robbed, don’t worry. This is all one a–hole’s opinion anyway.

Yet Another Note: If you’re a fan of Rob Cesternino’s “Rob Has a Podcast,” you may recall that he and I discussed this list a few weeks ago. We’re bouncing around a similar (and in my opinion better) idea for an upcoming podcast. And if you’re not a fan of Rob’s podcast, you should be.


Corporate Synergy Has Never Tasted So Good

January 27, 2011

That’s right, free cupcakes, baby!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go pitch some wrestling-centric plot ideas to my co-workers over at “Community.”

Adventures In Clay: The Creation of Snowman Senor Chang

December 22, 2010

Note: We have a rule in the Holmes household that any gift that is meant to be enjoyed during Christmas should be given before Christmas. So don’t worry, this blog post isn’t spoiling my alliance partner’s holiday gift. Not that she reads my blog anyways…

“Community” is my new jam. It’s the show I watch on Thursday night, then put on again later that night while I’m writing. The alliance partner loves it too. In fact, after the claymation episode a few weeks ago (‘Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas’) she could not stop laughing at the sight of Senor Chang (Ken Jeong) in claymation form.

So I decided to make her a Snowman Chang of her own.


Things That Should Exist

October 23, 2010

I’m OK with my hands. I did the tiling and some of the plumbing work in my bathroom, I meticulously painted my front porch, and I used to be quite good with a first baseman’s glove. But now that I’ve chosen writing as my profession, I’ve become more of an idea man. I prefer to let my creative juices flow and allow the movers and shakers of the world to use my thoughts as their inspiration.

Here are few freebies… (more…)
