- Me: Who was it that I told that really embarrassing story about myself to?
- Me (10 seconds later): Oh wait. It was nobody. I was just practising how I would tell the story to Pete Holmes, if I was to ever be a guest on "You Made it Weird".
David O’Doherty performing his song “Life” in Pete’s hotel room in Melbourne.
As I’m listening to the Todd Glass episode of You Made it Weird, I thought that I really wanted to meet Todd, and then I remembered that a friend and I received a private show from him, at a bar, while sitting at a table with Matt Mira and Jonah Ray.
Good Old Petey Pants.
Pretty much my life’s anthem.
The phrase “Enjoy Your Burrito” (which is said at the end of every Nerdist episode) means a lot to me. I look at it as; forget the past (don’t dwell on the small things), Enjoy the present, and work towards the future.
Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray, and Matt Mira saved my life. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for them. They got me through some very tough times in my life. I am proud to have the Nerdist podcast logo tattooed on my arm, as a reminder that even though life is hard, it also gets better.
Recently, I’ve been saying that I live a “Nerdist appreciation life”, which I play off as just a funny line, but it really couldn’t be any more accurate.
p.s. Here is the tattoo, for anyone who hasn’t seen it before.
MAH FRAVRIT PERDKERST!!!!
Remember that time Chris sang the theme song to Doug Loves Movies? Live! Twice!
(Well, I just started to get back into DLM and I just got to this episode, but still)
Can I just say how jealous I am that Jonah Ray, Matt Mira, Chris Hardwick, Pete Holmes, Kumail Nanjiani & Emily V. Gordon are all Fwends with each other! I don’t even have 1 person, and here they are, flaunting their perfect fucking lives.
I need Fwends.
I’m pretty sure this is what people hear when I talk to them about Doctor Who/Buffy/Firefly/MST3K/Star Trek/Nerdist/Podcasts/pretty much anything.
