Josh Sneed is Frickin' Hilarious

Lately, I've been watching Comedy Central's stand-up clips on demand. Today, I stumbled on a seven-minute segment from Josh Sneed who is easily one of the funniest comics I have ever seen. His timing, facial expressions and onslaught of side-splitting anecdotes make for a hilarious routine. In short, he brings the funny.

Here's a clip from the segment I watched:

If you like Sneed's stuff as much as I do, you should vote for him here. Comedy Central is hosting a Stand-Up Showdown and will honor the comic who receives the most votes.

What are your favorite comedians?

My Goals for 2010

With the dawn of a brand new year, I've been pondering all the stuff I'd like to accomplish in 2010. I've got a bunch of ideas, but of course the hard part is seeing each goal to fruition. So, I have created the following list, which will give me something to consult throughout the year and help me measure my success.


To Do List for 2010:
  • Run a 10K
  • Go on a road trip (avoid Nebraska)
  • Write novel or collection of short stories
  • Learn to rap like Jay-Z
  • Watch marathon of my favorite childhood movies (i.e., Goonies, Breakfast Club, Star Wars, The Beastmaster, etc.)
  • Try stand-up comedy
  • Date Alicia Keys [My wife is OK with this because she doubts my chances... what does she know??]
  • Watch less (reality) TV
  • Remember people's names
  • Go on a deep sea fishing trip; catch a marlin with a bad temper
  • Invent a time machine
  • Use time machine to go back to the moment the Sox won the 1918 World Series
  • Get that stupid Miley Cyrus song out of my head
  • Start of fire without using matches
  • Eat more bacon
  • Get ripped abs
  • Drink better booze
  • Become independently wealthy
  • Sky dive
  • Learn how to play guitar like U2's The Edge
  • Get nickname like "The Edge"
  • Set my hideously embarrassing car on fire and push it out to sea. [Driving my car is seriously like wearing tall, black socks and sandals in public]
  • Avoid social disasters, especially in elevators and at cocktail parties
  • Post updates to this blog more often
So, that's my list. What's yours? With any luck we'll accomplish all of our goals this year.
