A couple of people commented positively on the design of the graphic for Derrick's weekly stand-up show in New York. I blushed, because I made it. It's a picture from the set of "Mystery Team," with the rest of the elements ripped off hard from Blue Note album covers. Every wannabe graphic-design nerd knows that Blue Note covers are the coolest thing in the world.

This is also a good opportunity for me to plug this show. I really ought to keep, like, a listing of shows on the side over there. I don't, but I will someday when my life stops being a fun, well-intentioned mess, and starts being a fun, well-intentioned ENGINE OF EFFICIENCY. Until then:

THIS IS NEW YORK is Derrick's weekly stand-up show. We host some of our favorite stand-ups, each one of us does a set ourselves, and the best part is the whole thing is free. The other best part is that it's in Queens, one stop out of Manhattan, where everything is magically mellower and costs a dollar less.

The show is at 9 PM. It's a bar, and there are drinks. Sangria is four dollars on Sundays, it's unbeatable.

We've been doing it for a few weeks now and it's really, really fun.

The Creek 10-93 Jackson Ave Long Island City, Queens
Show at 9 PM

This week our guests will be

Mara Herron
Lucas Held
Sean O'Connor
Mike Drucker

From Manhattan: Take the 7 Train to the first stop in Queens, Vernon-Jackson. Use the Jackson Ave. exit. Walk toward the Citibank tower (can't miss it) and The Creek is on your left.

From Brooklyn: Take the G Train to the first stop in Queens, 21st St/Van Alst. Walk away from the Citibank tower and The Creek is on your right.

It's gonna be mean. Mean meaning awesome. See you there!

Also: Donald won a fuckin' Emmy. (News item on the Derrick site.)

Also also: My friend Margot got married this weekend. I was at the wedding. It was truly epic. You can see a video of Margot and her very excellent new husband Dan planning their wedding over at the New York Times.
