Grimes Gives Steve Buscemi The Brush Off (Amex UNSTAGED: Vampire Weekend) (by americanexpressmusic)
this was the most nerve wracking thing ive ever had to do
What if Steve Buscemi was Grimes’ father? I wouldn’t be surprised.
My first sketch for the MLB Fan Cave. Today’s guest is Miami Marlins baseball player, Rob Brantly.
Umps are great!
This baseball season I’ll be spending my time watching games/blogging/online media making for Major League Baseball in the MLB Fan Cave (located on Broadway and 4th St. in Historic New York City). I’ll be REPRESENTING the Cincinnati Reds and my number one goal is to see them win a World Series and then run through the streets of downtown Cincinnati with my butt hanging out or something similiarly fun and exciting and NEW to celebrate Cincinnati finally winning a championship after 23 years of heartache and heartbreak. But I also have other goals and here they are:
1. MLB No Hat Game™
This is my Moby Dick, Shamu, and Willy from Free Willy the movie all wrapped into one. It’s my White Whale. Only I’m determined to capture this white whale, lick the saltwater from it’s quivering fins, attach a computer chip to it somewhere and then free it back into the wild, unharmed, so EVERYONE can watch its progress and enjoy it with me. Basically, I want there to be one game a season where no one wears hats. It would be fun! You’d get to see your favorite players haircuts! Here’s some more details: http://benwietmarschen.tumblr.com/post/42543040865/mlb-should-have-no-hat-game-tm
2. Become An Honorary Third Base Coach for a Game
I know I would be a fantastic third base coach but the real reason I’d want to do this is third base coaches don’t get nearly enough attention. First of all, they’re lonely. Some games they don’t get to chat with anyone the whole game, unless they chat with the opposing team’s third baseman, and third basemen are notorious cranks (mainly because they are often feeling lonely as well. Not many people get to third base and a lot of times they just run right by without stopping). And secondly, third base coaches get to do the number one baseball move (maybe number one sports move) which is flailing one arm in a circle to signal a runner coming from second base to KEEP GOING, round third base, and head in to home to score a run for the home team! I love a third base coach who really just let’s it fly and isn’t all worried about what he looks like to his friends, he GETS INTO IT! Also, third base coaches do the steal and bunt signals and give high fives and butt pats to players during their home run trot. All in all a pretty great baseball job.
3. Do At Least 50 Pushups Every Day
I really need to become healthier. I’m a skinny man but not taking care of my body through exercise and eating right is going to catch up to me someday. Even if it’s not through gaining weight, there’s heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and osteoporosis, just to name a few. And it’s really just a small inconvenient thing I can do every day but it can make me feel better and have more energy to do the things in life that I really want to do. To pursue my goals and be energized and not always be lethargic and unmotivated. Not to mention I owe it to my loved ones, my future wife and kids, to take care of myself so I can go on taking care of them well into old age.
4. Have a Conversation with Bo Jackson
5. Be the Best Fan Cave Man I Can Be By: 1. Writing Interesting, Thought-Provoking, and Funny Pieces About Baseball and Baseball Culture. 2. Making Entertaining and Funny Videos. AND 3. Working Really Hard at Whatever Else Makes a Good Fan Cave Man.
I’m giving up a lot in my life to do this so I’m going to do it right and make it great for the MLB, for Reds fans, for my friends, and for me.
I have way more goals but those are the top 5.
shiny wool, bent knees, flare-ish legs, dark crotch, black thin belt, tips of pointy shoes (look high up), striped shirt w/ sleeves, side hands, white watch
