The Weekly: 15

Hello everyone who reads this. And those who haven't signed up yet. [stragglers...]

This week's The Weekly is coming at you from ... home. Which is New York City [where they make shitty salsa]. Specifically Hell's Kitchen. 

It's where I write 85% of the Weeklys and where I spend 99% of my time. 

Yes, despite living in the entertainment capital of the world [just go with it] I spend most of my time at home. And I love it. But I also love being able to get a night cap [always a negroni] at 11:30pm any night of the week 200 feet from my front door [holy prepositional phrases!]. Which I've been able to do twice this week.

Working from home also means listening to whatever music I [Wiff] want. 

And today that's an album my dad sent me [yay, free music!]. Of himself [not kidding]. Playing drums [also not kidding]. Which I happen to think is pretty effing cool.

The album was recorded in 1978, a few years before I graced the world with my all-star presence. I am a little curious why nothing was recorded after I was born. I'm sure it had nothing to do with me being his and my mother's first child. And nothing to do with said child saying "yo, I'm not gonna appreciate the dope music you made for another 33 years, and PASS DAT BOTTLE."  [I was always a gangster.]

Anyway, I'm not sure where I was going with that, other than so say, "thanks, Dad!" for making cool music and sharing it with me [also, when's the revival tour?].

Fall [Autumn?!]

It's officially Fall, or Pumpkin Spice Latte season as it's colloquially known by yoga-panted women at Starbucks everywhere. 

I know it's Fall because I no longer immediately pit out the moment I leave my apartment building on my way to Starbucks [JUST for the coffee, also, Namaste]. 

Can we talk about Fall for a second?

WTF is up wth the name? Is it Fall or Autumn? Why is this the only season with a nickname? Is the TRUE name Fall or Autumn? I like to be right in everything [I usually am] but this is one thing I'm just not sure of. And how in god's name is Fall an appropriate nickname for Autumn? They don't even sound alike! There are kids out there with the name Autumn [mostly girls but you never know what millennials are calling their offspring these days]; are they using the same nickname nomenclature? [I really wanted to use nomenclature this week.] Also, do we capitalize seasons anymore?. I want to meet someone named Fall.

No other season gets another name. You don't see Winter saying "A-yo, it's Chill" or Spring saying "my book club calls me Samantha".

Thousands of you wrote in asking, nay, DEMANDING for more of these videos. I've finally dug myself out of the millions of emails [they each sent thousands] and have this to say: You will see an update soon. How soon? Don't push it. Probably in a few days.

While most of my life has been dedicated to entertaining you weirdos [6 people including my mom] I do have things going on in "real life." [No one with a "real life" puts "real life" in quotes.]

Suffice to say within a few days there will be more coming. 

If you have questions you'd like Wiff and I to answer during our self-interviews, let me know here

Wiff Has [had!] A Facebook Loser

C'mon, people. Really?!? 

You have nothing better to do with your life than copy/paste images from an instagram account and make a fake Facebook profile?

I realize some people have ZERO going on in their life, but that doesn't mean you should adopt someone else's.
