The Power of Art Keeps Me Alive

Posted with tags Vine, Vine magic on 6/30/2014 10:13:39 AM by DannyMoney


The Sistine Chapel?  Garbage.  The Mona Lisa?  Trash.  Guernica?  Please.  This Vine is true art.  The kind of art that is more magic than anything else.  Vine Magic.  This is why we continue to live and not die.  This is why we hoist sails into the air and voyage out into the unknown searching for new lands.  It is the human mind's power to create which lights our very souls on fire with possibility and moves our species forward.  That, and sex.

Josh has also produced and written various short films, including“Volcano Girl,” based on “Anyone But Virginia.” He also produced USC thesis film"The Films of Avi Krum," starring Adam Herschman ("Accepted") and Dan Rather("CBS Evening News").
Prior to moving to Los Angeles, Josh worked as a reporter in the Washington, D.C. area for the Washington City Paper, The Examiner and the News and Messenger.

His reporting and editorial cartoons received awards from various press associations and the American Association of Editorial Cartoonists.

Christian Contreras - Writer/Director

Shortly after, Christian moved to Los Angeles, CA to pursue his passion for film and lighting. He is currently finishing his MFA in Film and TV Production from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts where he focused his studies in cinematography and discovered his love for writing and directing.

Coming off his experience on “Herman,” Christian is revisiting his craze for puppets in his graduate thesis film, “Para Ellos,” a story about two children who journey across the U.S./Mexico border in search for their father; he is co-directing “Para Ellos” along with “Herman” producer, Victoria De La Torre.

What's Mark Malkoff Up To?


Mark Malkoff, Camryn Manheim and Camryn Manheim's Emmy


Where's Mark Malkoff been?

Was he so exhausted from taking people on Free Cab Rides all over New York City that he's gone into hiding? Was his last vlog chronicling his adventures arm-wrestling children just too Over The Top?

Fear not. Mark is hard at work in Los Angeles putting together his next project for you: "Celebrity Sleepovers."

Make sure you visit the My Damn Channel Facebook Page where we will post photos of Mark and some of the celebs who have let him into their home.

Like Lisa Loeb:


And Ed Begley, Jr.:


... where we see the arm-wrestling thing is starting to become a recurring theme.

We'll let you know when the video is going to premiere. Until then, we hope more celebrities arm wrestle with Mark because Dan Harmon and I agree that these Over The Top jokes are never going to get old:




Mark Malkoff Will Spend Five Days in the Bathroom



Mark Malkoff is worn out.

Mark texts. Mark tweets. Mark emails and Facebooks and YouTubes and iPhones and does a million other brand-name things that popular culture has turned into verbs. It is a lot of work to stay connected to everyone all over the world wide web at one time, and Mark is starting to find it all a little taxing.

So he's going to check out for five days in a place where no distractions will get to him: his bathroom.

Sounds like a good idea, right?

Mark's even gong to try to be productive during his Week With No Internet. He's going to try and finish that book he's been meaning to read. He's going to learn that song he's been meaning to play. He's going to write that poem for his wife he's been meaning to write. Aw. That's sweet. And all the while, he's going to shoot footage and put it all into one awesome video, which we can all watch on his channel at MyDamnChannel.com/MarkMalkoff on September 8th.

We're pretty excited to have Mark Malkoff on our team. After all, anyone who can visit every single Starbucks in Manhattan in a single day is a friend of ours. And since he lived in a New Jersey IKEA for a week, he'd probably know better than anyone how to wield a an allen wrench. And, he knows Lisa Loeb, so, you know, bonus points:




To be honest, we're jealous. We wish that we could check out for five days. We wouldn't talk to ANYONE. Except we wouldn't do it in our bathroom. We'd do it on an island somewhere, and, okay, so MAYBE we'd talk to someone... but it would be because he was the bartender and we had to tell him what kind of wonderfully fruity drink to bring us. But other than him, no one.

Good luck, with this one, Mark.  We think you're gonna need it.
