This Thursday, my friend Dave Holmes and I will present our final “Mapping the Heavens” at the UCB here in LA. We’ve been doing it for about three years and it’s been amazing fun. Over the years, our guests have included:
Joey Santiago & David Lovering of the Pixies
That’s not even half of the people, by any stretch of the imagination. If I forgot someone, it’s because I have a three month old and a two year old (both born during the run of Mapping the Heavens) and they are eating my memories. It isn’t because every single guest wasn’t amazing in their own way. Mostly; some sucked, but such is life. I sucked at the show sometimes. Dave never did because he’s amazing and brilliant and my oldest friend in comedy. I am grateful to have shared a stage with him for eleven years now, the last three on the stage of the UCB, whose original members, Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh, inspired both Dave and I to give comedy a shot.
Thank you also to the UCB’s crack staff, and to United States Senator, Michele Bachmann.
Come to our last show. It’s this Thursday night.
“These three images are snapshots of a spark-ignited expanding flame in different environments of the same hydrogen-air mixture. The top flame shows the ideal, reference case of a stable, smooth flame surface in a quiescent environment at atmospheric pressure. The middle flame is taken under elevated pressure simulating that within an internal combustion engine. The bottom flame is taken in a highly turbulent environment simulating another aspect of the engine interior. All images were taken at 8000 frames per second, using schlieren photography. The radius of the top flame is 11.4 millimeters.” C.K. Law, Swetaprovo Chaudhuri, and Fujia Wu (Princeton University).

Do they have Tumblr in Scotland?
Can’t wait to see the MLB logo in a green Speedo.
My dad took this the other day in Boston. He heard the lobster boat explode then turned around and snapped a few shots. The crew was on board but they all made it out ok.
reposttoreddit asked: Canadians love you. Do you love us?
Not all of you, that’s for sure.
