Okay, not really. But they totally could have. But sometimes Tracy Morgan stops by the 92nd Street Y to talk to comedian Hannibal Buress about his life and the world of standup. This just so happened to occur last Wednesday night. Check out my latest article for CBS to find out how these two hilarious guys cracked each other up.

*Note to self: Remember to ask Brian Fellows how he’s doing.

279. I’m Already Laughing


It’s about time Maya Rudolph gets her own show – well a shot at it, at least. It was announced today that at 10 p.m. on May 19th, NBC will air The Maya Rudolph Show. The sketch/variety show will star her and her famous friends (aka Kristen Bell, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen (seriously what isn’t Fred up to these days?), Craig Robinson, Sean Hayes, and Chris Parnell. We should expect songs and sketches – does that mean SNL’s 90′s girl band Gemini’s Twin will be making an appearance? I seriously hope so.

Janelle Monae will be a musical guest while Raphael Saadiq will serve as bandleader. Pretty cool. Oh, and, of course, Lorne Michaels is executive producing. Let’s just hope it gets green lighted for an entire series. Because we need a woman in late night and Maya is the perfect person for the job.

*Note to self: See if Maya is on LinkedIn. Send her my resume. Instant friends and colleagues.

278. Smudge


So, my good friend’s mother asked me to put together a list of my favorite cosmetic products. Click here to read what I’m obsessed with now and what’s in my makeup bag – okay, makeup bags.

*Note to self: Don’t forget to make an appt. to get your teeth whitened. I’m having teeth envy thanks to the chick in this GIF.

Looking for a new place to grab some grub and a tasty cocktail? Stop by the new SoHo hotspot Chalk Point Kitchen & The Handy Liquor Bar. It’s serving up market to table cuisine and some serious Manhattan cocktails. Matt Levine and his team have certainly taken eating out to another level. Read all about it my latest post for CBSNewYork.com.


What a wonderful video!

*Note to self: Just tell attractive guys I  meet that I’m making a FIRST KISS documentary. Done.

275. Loner Birthday


Guess I was the only February birthday at work. More cake for me. (The guy behind me had more important phone things to deal with.)

*Note to self: Next year’s goal – Learn how to blow out candles more efficiently.

274. Oscar Joes

It’s Oscar day so why not celebrate this year’s movies with a cup of joe? Check out the crazy work of barista Michael Breach, who makes it possible for any customer to drink up Leonardo DiCaprio and Joaquin Phoenix. And, of course, he’s from Brooklyn. Would you expect anything else?

*Note to self: Show up at Stumptown Coffee at the Ace Hotel and show the baristas Michael’s work, just to prove that he’s more hipstery than they are.

273. Boner Ghost

In honor of SXSW starting up next week, here’s a moment from SXSW 2010, courtesy of Seth Meyers. He does a spot on impression of Will Forte (who was close to nabbing an Academy Award nomination for his role in Nebraska) and talks about the boner ghost from Albuquerque.

*Note to self: Watch out for that Boner Ghost the next time you’re in Albuquerque. Also, watch out for Will Forte.

272. Oscars, Baby

If you thought the Oscar-nominated films were good this year, wait until you see the child parodies:

*Note to self: Find a kid and make him/her a child actor.

271. Late Night with Seth Meyers


Just found out that Stefon will be making an appearance on the upcoming Late Night with Seth Meyers. This makes me extremely happy. That is all.

If you’re not familiar with Stefon and Seth’s relationship – they ended up getting married on Bill Hader’s last night on SNL. Here’s a Stefon montage:

*Note to self: Try out all those clubs with DJ Baby Bokchoy!
