We are beyond thankful for the hundreds who came out to celebrate the NYTVF with us Friday night...to celebrate 3 years in business...to announce all that's new...and to celebrate the work of our hero Harry Shearer.
Harry Shearer's documentary about the REAL reason Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, The Big Uneasy, starts its one-week-only New York and Los Angeles engagements tomorrow. To mark the event, Harry will do a LIVE CHAT on Friday, September 24th at noon Eastern/9am Pacific.
Go to MyDamnChannel.com/HarryLive to type in your questions and have Harry answer them LIVE via video broadcast.
We've already decided that you will be there. You're gonna do it. You HAVE to do it. It's your chance to chat with Harry freakin' Shearer for goodness' sake.
So, to recap: Mark Malkoff spent 5 Days In The Bathroom to try to rid himself of his internet addiction. This makes the internet love him more. Behold:
Even former former Conan and Daily Show writer Rob Kutner got in on it:
So, now we know: YOU CANNOT QUIT THE MEDIA. THE MEDIA WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND FIND YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE EVEN IF YOU ARE IN YOUR OWN BATHROOM IN QUEENS. And Rob Kutner, can you try to be less funny and witty when writing tweets about our videos, please? You are making some of us look bad.

So, in Part One, we learned that the first day was pretty rough on Mark Malkoff:
This week, we learn how Mark tried to stay fit:
... learned to knit...
... and learned how to play "Every Rose Has Its Thorn"... kind of...
Watch Part Two now, and make sure you get up early on Thursday, September 16th to watch Mark Malkoff on the CBS Early Show:
UPDATE: Both Mark and his infinitely patient wife Christine will appear on The CBS Early Show on Friday, September 17th during the 8 AM hour!
This is Mark Malkoff
And this is Mark Malkoff:
And this is Mark Malkoff:
Does he look familiar? He should... because Mark Malkoff is just like you: ADDICTED TO THE INTERNET.
He decided to check into his bathroom (like, REALLY check-in, not virtually check-in on Foursquare or Facebook or Gowalla) for FIVE STRAIGHT DAYS to see if he could shake his reliance on technology and rebuild some of the attention span he lost over the last four or five years
Was he successful? Did he survive? Did he actually learn to make ramen using an electric tea kettle and the kitchen sink? Is he less of a person because he missed TMZ for a week? Find out in PART ONE then come back to My Damn Channel on September 15th to see the rest... unless you're inspired to spend a week in your own bathroom to do an Internet Detox. In which case, we'll see you on the other side, kids. See you on the other side.
