Sarah Silverman says that most comics’ sense of humor comes from self-loathing. For her, that wasn’t really the case:  

"I think my comedy came more from humiliation… I was a chronic bed-wetter. I had this deep, dark secret. If I had to go to sleepover parties I would just pinch myself awake all night.
The…thing that made me feel the most Jewish, because we weren’t religious in any way, was that I was so friggin’ hairy compared to these Carol Reed, L.L. Bean blonde Aryans that I lived with. So there was that. You want to be funny before anyone is funny on your behalf.” 


Silverman just won an Emmy for best writing for a variety special, her HBO special, We Are Miracles.

He had potential to do something great. He saw what Stitch and all the other experiments were doing, but he was just like

Serendipity saying it how it is

(Dogma, 1999)

I still can’t believe Kevin Smith wrote this movie considering how awful he is now (and probably always was, but he did have his moments.)

Congratulations are in order for Eleanor Davis because for the THIRD week in a row, her new collection How to Be Happy is on the New York Times Best Sellers' list. This gorgeous book has to be seen to be believed but check out what everyone is saying about it. Grab a copy from your local comic shop, bookstore, our online store or your local library. 
“Though Davis’ tales can be wildly different in look and narrative, they are united by themes of yearning, of characters searching for the thing that will make their lives better.” -Carolina A. Miranda, LA Times”That’s Davis’ sensibility. In her roundabout way, she dramatizes not the prospect of happiness, but the promise of it. Her natural territory is found in all the funny and tragic effects of that promise.” - Etelka Lehoczky, NPR
 
“This collection of short stories about people desperately trying to suppress or embrace or just somehow deal with all the difficult emotions careening around in their brain just underscores what those who have seen Davis’ work in scattered anthologies already suspected: that she is a tremendous talent, and one of the smartest voices working in comics today.” - Chris Mautner, Robot 6”What’s most noticeable when the stories are laid up against one another is her varied visual approach, adapting her style to best fit the material…The success of this collection suggests that short pieces are likely Davis’ métier, but what’s here is so accomplished that it’s natural to hope for a book-length work next time out." -Gordon Flagg, Booklist

Matt Damon Does Ice Bucket Challenge With Toilet Water For 800 Million Without Clean H2O

Matt Damon was conflicted when friends Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Affleck called on him to complete the ALS ice bucket challenge.

Find out who Damon challenges here. 

Fun fact, part of the reason dogs and cats drink from the toilet is because the water in the toilet is usually cleaner than the water from your faucet and filled with fewer chemicals.

Think about that.

On a really simple technical level, it’s not an ideal comparison. Drones aren’t omniscient: one of the reasons where there’s a serious civilian casualty count in the US drone campaign in Pakistan is that it’s hard for drone cameras to distinguish civilians from legitimate targets at altitude.

Zach Beauchamp on a Texas megachurch pastor’s decision to use predator drones as a metaphor for God in a sermon series. More:

"We need to rediscover how great and how awesome our God is," megachurch preacher Ed Young says in the second of an August lecture series posted to YouTube. "So I thought I would call this series [of sermons] ‘Drones.’"

Wait — drones? The remotely piloted aircraft that also moonlight as tools for blowing up people in Pakistan? They’re what is going to make America rediscover God? […]

Each lecture in the drones series focuses on one of the three basic attributes of the Abrahamic God: he’s omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (everywhere), and omnipotent (all-powerful).

Apparently, so are drones.

"Drones would be a sort of a microcosm of who God is," Young preaches in the third lecture, before briefly explaining each attribute.

This is bizarre on every level.
