Back at Home

Hey everyone,

Sorry I have been MIA, but I went back to NYC to visit my family friends. Last night I got to catch Nightwish playing at the Nokia Theater in Times Square. Tickets were pretty cheap for the venue so I would have been foolish not go. If you haven't heard of Nightwish, they are heavy metal fuzed with opera fuzed with celtic rhythms. It was pretty damn sweet.

Tonight I am catching Dane Cook. Now I know that there is some talk about Dane Cook and his material. Some say that he stole some material from other comics, some say he is not that funny. All I know is I listened to his last album and it made me laugh. All this drama and gossip doesn't really faze me. I listen to comedy to laugh.

But we shall see how his show will do. And if he did the things that people say he did, I am sure karma will get him back. After all, he did star in that awfully mediocre, "Employee of the Month" movie, and isn't punishment enough.

Hope everyone had great weekend.

happy you had some time to catch up with doing fun stuff with family and friends!!! There never is enough time to do that, or so it seems when you have to be out on the road and filming.As for Dane, he is a funny guy, and had to put up with Jessica Simpson for filming purposes. Dunno if he steals material, but that must have been torture to have to listen to that voice day. after. day. after. day.
Rock on, Serg!

Oh man... I'll bet it was "pretty damn sweet" I'm jealous! My weekend paled in comparison but it was relaxing. That's great that you got to go home and see family and friends... take care!

Jessica said...

Im jealous your going to see Dane Cook. I am with you on the whole not being fazed by rumors. I like his stuff it makes me laugh so its all good! I wanna know how it was though :) have a good time with family!

superrawgirl said...

Sounds like a fun weekend Serge, I love live entertainment, it always makes me feel....alive I guess. Nightwish sounds interesting and right up my alley. If your into metal you should check out Celtic Frost. Very old school metal and very cool indeed. Have a great week! Heather

I'm glad you were finally able to take a nice break and visit with family and friends since everyone needs time like that!

Random aside in regards to your photography:

If you're looking for a place where you can post your work and have people suggest ways to improve it, or offer new tips and techniques and stuff, and overall has a really great community (with a few drama type exceptions) its called www.deviantart.com

lol totally not meant as a plug I just know I found it really helpful to get opinions form people who I never meant.

Anyways hope you had a great weekend and have a great week too!

I saw Dane Cook's show. He does a lot of improve with the audition so he's obviously a funny guy, and his vlogs are hilarious as well, so whether or not he stole other people's joke doesn't mean he isn't talented.

I got to catch Flight of the Concords this week in Chicago which was also really funny. I'm happy I went even though swine flu had just hit Chicago and everyone was freaking out.

I had a good weekend. I spent part of the time looking for a new dog since I put two dogs down last year. It was tough, I went to visit a few shelters and foster homes but didn't get a spark with any of them. I met one dog who looked like my other dog but my expectations where to high since she was the best dog ever, and it just wasn't right. Anyways, I hoped you enjoyed NYC, I have a love/hate relationship with the city. It's a different story every time I go.

Hey,
Good to hear you went back to NYC. I love Nightwish,and I am so jealous you went, and Dane Cook is awesome as well. :) Have fun and have a good week! :)

Brit said...

Good for you on being able to go back to your stompin ground for awhile!!

And Dane Cook is amazing. He is this generations George Carlin. I haven't heard that he stole his material...hopefully this is just a dirty rumor. But, like you said, people listen to comedy to laugh. If the original wasn't funny, and he can turn it into something funny...more power to him I guess.

Sounds like your weekend has been amazing! Enjoy your time with your family and friends...as I'm sure your free time is hard to comme by.

Beautiful Disaster said...

I love Dane Cook! So I completely agree with your logic...are you watching the new one or Vicious Circle? Because VC is hilarious! I'm glad you go to go home and that concert does sound pretty sweet. Thanks for the update! ^_^

faith, hope, love said...

eh, Dane Cook is hit or miss for me...probably because some of this movies aren't that great. Another good comedian is Bo Burnham--he's on YouTube and he's hilarious.

Have a great week!

Debs said...

Not much to say, it's a Monday and Im prepping to teach 3 English classes how to use a variety of databases. See, nowhere near as much fun as you're having in NYC! Send me a postcard! ;-)) LOL

OK, back to getting things set up! Thought technology was supposed to make out lives easier???

Jenn said...

Hey Serg!
I love Dane Cook's comedy - I saw him live in Toronto once, he was incredible! I don't let what others think about him bother me, he makes me laugh, so it's all good!
Take it easy

You lucky man, you XD I would give my right arm to see Nightwish.

I hope you had a good time. Sometimes it's good to just have time to catch up with people.

Dane Cook cracks me up. I love his bit about atheism. I you haven't heard it it's on youtube. Just type in Dane Cook and The Bible. Hope you had fun in NYC :) Looking forward to the UFO Ranch Trip? I sure am.

Lyssaboo said...

I LURRRV NIGHTWISH
I'm actually on my way to a Tarja Turunen (solo) show :D (I love Chicago >.>)
I thought Dane Cook wrote his stuff o.O But I like his movies :P

Erica said...

Dane cook is the shit. I would go and see him but when he's here I'll be in vegas for my bday. There's always next time.. Hope you enjoy his show.

erika said...

i hope you have fun seeing dane cook! my friend saw him the last time he was in seattle and she said her stomache litterally hurt from laughing so hard. :)

btw i was really happy to see the ganzfeld experiment used in tonight's episode. such a cool concept! so amazing.

Tessa said...

I've never gotten to see Nightwish live, I hear they put on a good show. I was rather disappointed at their new album. The last singer they had was much better in my opinion.

I much prefer Carlos Mencia over Dane cook.

Kristen JS said...

baha, Im jealous you get to see Dane Cook. He's freakin hilarious!

Crystal said...

Dane Cook's pretty awesome, have you heard Stephen Lynch yet? If not you should check him out

Anonymous said...

I've heard the rumors too about Dane and it doesnt bother me. i watched isolated incident and he's still making me laugh so hes still good in my book.
