Tough Love episode 3 is out! All the catch-up you need is that Steven is trying to find spiritual peace, and his roommate Blaire has been mistaken for a lesbian at a party.
This was the first episode we shot, and it was fun. On Day 1 of shooting, Emily Fletcher kindly let us use her meditation studio and played a high-strung, evil version of herself.
Tough Love, a comedy series about two roommates afraid of New York City and of their own sex lives, has been compared to “Broad City” by The Daily Dot.
I worked really hard to keep that tea steaming hot, because I thought it’d be an important continuity marker. Of course it was not.
I’ve never seen a show so dialog-dependent as “The Thick of It,” and I love it. “Veep” is a lot goofier, “The West Wing” was great but not funny. I don’t even need the show to be political, I just want something where everyone snipes at each other and gets caught in their own webs of lies. What do I watch?
On Monday, March 10th at 7pm, Ami Greko and I will be joining forces with Housing Works Bookstore Cafe for Stock Tips: A Party About a Zine About Soup.
There will be soup-related storytelling by Dave Bry, Bex Schwartz, Kevin Nguyen, and Jaime Green, drinking, mingling, and zines for sale to benefit Housing Works.
To join our Soup Swap, bring a recipe on an index card — as scribbled or designed as you like. Drop it in my favorite turquoise stock pot and pull out someone else’s. (It’s like a free raffle, or a potluck without the mess!)
Hope to see you there!
In one week, you will be here! Laughing, drinking, and sharing soup recipes on our Stock Exchange!
RSVP on Facebook if you like.
New Yorkers, come celebrate soup with my girlfriend next week.
Ashamed to admit I might have tipped my proverbial fedora to this sentiment in high school, but how does a man make it to middle age holding onto such adolescent feels? As if all major team sports aren’t interwoven layers of frenetic game and strategic meta-game, undergirded by staggeringly deep mathematics and complex human storytelling.
