They didn’t just throw this out there in passing; they’ve made it a mission. They ran a prominent, forceful editorial, and they’re following it up with a whole series. The New York Times has decided to make marijuana legalization a priority and give it everything they’ve got.

I don’t think most politicians oppose legalization because they’re concerned about the dangers of marijuana. I think most politicians oppose legalization because they think supporting it will be a bad career move: opponents will portray them as focusing on frivolous issues while the country has larger priorities, and older, more conservative voters will believe them. “Our economy is in a shambles, our national security is threatened, and my opponent thinks we should all go smoke doobies.”

The New York Times has more mainstream respect than probably any other national news source, and they’re putting their full weight behind this. And they’re making it clear that this is about larger issues like crime and racism, not about the right to get high. People who aren’t about to read a NORML pamphlet read and respect the New York Times.

This is huge.

The Training Center is dead. Long live the Training Center.

"Audrey’s absence touches me in ways I did not predict. I find myself thinking not of clues or evidence, but of the content of her smile. The way it gives the lie to her delinquent posing, the hardened exterior which I suspect is more a matter of self-preservation than a heart that is cold. Audrey’s heart is warm”.

My experience with a film I’m in is while I’m shooting it. I usually don’t see it or only see it once afterward. I like to see the whole picture, and how the other actors did and the director’s vision, but I don’t like watching my own work.
So I haven’t seen [Fire Walk With Me] in twenty years, but my experience in working with David [Lynch] was incredible. I do know that there are hours of footage that many people want to see – I want to see it because I’m a fan of David Lynch.

Spent the day working at the old UCB Training Center. Don’t have anymore shifts here before it closes. Took my first class here in 2007. So long, space. Your wifi sucked but I liked you.

I was there for probably the last time on Saturday. Coached some improv in Room 1. Big holes in the wall. I reflected back when TYR practiced there (every Sunday, noon to 3pm, for a really long time). And the day we knocked a hole in the wall and Gabrus, who was coaching us that day, said, “Don’t worry about it. They’ll just blame in on me.”
Before I left on Saturday, I though about breaking off a chunk of drywall from the whole and taking it with me. Then I realized I would have to find a place to keep a chunk of drywall.

I remember when it opened, in March 2006. My first time there was for a Lottery practice, just after I’d finished 401. Things were barely set up yet— I remember me and Matt Moses looking through all the rooms and finding what would apparently be the office, but was basically empty.So many improv memories. So many weird encounters. One time in 2007, Sherpa had a practice and Beth Cartier inexplicably brought a puppy she’d somehow been roped into dog-sitting at the last minute, and the puppy wouldn’t sit still, so she had to hold it and kept walking on to every scene while holding a dog. Then the dog took a shit on the floor mid-scene. I remember our coach Bobby Moynihan giving us notes and saying “and then I stopped writing things down because a dog started shitting on your Harold”. Every time I’ve gone in that room since then, my first thought has been about a dog shitting on my improv.Eight years… that’s longer than any other place besides the UCB itself has been a consistently recurring part of my life as an adult. It’s weird to think I’ll never see it again.

Do you realize, like, some the best things that have ever come out of my mouth were written by the people that wrote that show? — Seth Green [x]

1. Who she is. 
2. If she sings or if she is on some Disney show.
3. Is she new or old. Like would I hear or see what she does and say “ahhh yeah I probably heard that” OR “ahhh yeah….I might remember hearing that”.
4. If she is Ke$ha or not.
5. If she dated Justin Bieber or someone in One Direction or anyone of the above. Or no one. 
6. Her feelings on the complex situation in the Gaza strip.
7. Probably something about a beef she has with someone.
8. Some sort of benign thing like her favorite food. I mean I really wouldn’t know this one. Hoagies, peking duck, seaweed soup? I mean..whatever
9. Who her parents are? If they are famous or not famous. Works for me. 
10. I mean, pretty much anything you say.
