Delivery from NO WEATHER on Vimeo.
This guy is a true warrior. Delivering pizza on a fixed gear bike in the dead of winter. What a character Bill is. Really gives you a reminder to look at the people around you. Also, I live in this area! Best Pizza is good! I hope I see Bill next time I need delivery.

Check out this video from my buddy Joon Chung, one of the finest and funniest members of the extended My Damn Channel family. In this mockumentary styled sketch, he stars as JOSH LEE, ROLLERBLADER DELIVERY BOY OF BREAD. Gee golly gosh, in addition to being a very handsome man, Joon is such a talented actor, comedian, and writer. Some guys have all the luck!
So please do enjoy the video above, and then go check out more of Joon's videos on YouTube. Welcome to The Jooniverse, ladies and gentlemen.
P.S. - The funniest part of this video is that he says he's 28 - yeah right, bro! ;)

"Weird Al" Yankovic, one of my first musical and comedic obsessions, released the first video in his #8videosfor8days project with "Tacky", a parody of Pharrell's once ubiquitous tune "Happy". The video features guest appearances from comedians Aisha Tyler, Margaret Cho, Kristen Schaal, Jack Black, and Eric Stonestreet, who delivers my favorite moment of the video at about the 1:20 minute mark. Click here to watch the video over at Nerdist.
Weird Al has been delivering the goods for so long now, it can be easy to take him for granted. As I got older, song parodies played less of a significant role in my life - certainly less than they did when was 10 years old and "Bad Hair Day" was my favorite record of all-time. But this video proves that Al can still make us laugh with a goofy yet smart song parody, and serves as yet another reminder of the joy he brought me and millions of others as youngsters.
May he always reign over his kingdom! Long live "Weird Al"!

, 25th Anniversary
on 7/7/2014 11:01:14 AM by DannyMoney
My favorite TV show of all-time celebrated its 25th anniversary this weekend. That show isSeinfeld. Right up there with The Beatles and the Harry Potter novels, Seinfeld has given me countless hours of pure and true joy during the course of my entire life. To watch the show is my kind of heaven, and the two clips above are two of my favoriteSeinfeld moments. I can't really say why I find them so funny, because they're not "classic" in the yada-yada, Soup Nazi, "The Contest" sense. But I think they are good examples of why the show was so beloved more accurately than a lot of the more famous moments do, since I find that it wasn't just the showstoppers that you came for. You came for George singing a song, desperately in love. You came for, "You're eating onions, spotting dimes - I don't know what the hell is going on!" That line is pure nirvana for DannyMoney.
Below are some articles about Seinfeld that I have enjoyed reading in the last couple of days.
- Andy Greenwald for Grantland has 25 thoughts on the show
- Time's James Poniewozi says there will never be another Seinfeld
- Seinfeld paved the way for Tony Soprano? Matt Zoller Seitz think so

I love seeing SNL alumni working together. Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig look like they're at the top of their game in this trailer, working outside the personas they created on Saturday Night Live and stretching their thespian talents to great, dramatic lengths. In addition, almost any movie featuring an irreverent couple dancing to Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" gets a big vote of confidence from me, Daniel "The Hammer" Chelemer.

I'm a Howard Stern devotee, so I was absolutely THRILLED to see that the The Howard Stern Birthday Bash that occurred this past January is now available to watch IN FULL. I don't have much to say other than WATCH THIS. It's hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, features an appearance by Jimmy Fallon and a rare interview from David Letterman. I mean, everyone is on this show, from the likes of Robert Downey, Jr., Louis C.K., and Adam Levine performing "Purple Rain". It's four hours of pure bliss.

The prequel to Wet Hot American Summer is officially official, as David Wain confirms this with for certain 100 percent confirmation on Late Night with Seth Myers. So now the doubts by all of the doubters are doubtlessly un-affirmed by this prequel substantiating interview by an in-the-know man who knows the things concerning the knowledge of and in relation to prequels of Wet Hot American Summer.......And I think I just had an aneurysm.
Ladies and gentlemen, check out the coolest man on earth, The Bruce Lee of Bartending. Whoever this man is, he is officially the coolest dude I have ever seen. Ever. He wears a yellow jumpsuit and he has the skills to pay the bills. Balancing bottles on his head making you a gin and tonic. Sure, the drink takes thirty minutes to arrive in your hand ready for consumption, but it's all worth it because you are basically seeing a full Cirque du Soleil performance by a man who could have chosen to kill people for a living with his bare hands, but instead decided to serve drinks with flair until now unheard of. Put it this way: they'd be mad jealous of over at Chotchkie's.
Well, it's that time of the year again. The time when I use valuable blog space to promote Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, which needs no promoting at all, a point that the Comic's Comic humorously pointed out.
Nevertheless, what can I say, I love the show - I can't wait for the June 19th premiere. So here I am, doing it again. Letting Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee dominate this blog. Here's to you, Jerry Seinfeld, King of the Universe.
P.S. - The Comic's Comic also says that each episode of CCC has a budget of $100,000. That's one expensive cup of joe!

No joke, I've watched this Instagram video ten to twenty times. There is nothing - and I mean absolutely nothing - that I like more in this world than an amazing catch. And I'm not talking about an athlete making a catch on the football field or on the baseball diamond. Oh no. I like when an average person makes a phenomenal catch. Makes a sick grab. Like who, you ask? Oh I don't know...how about Patrick Wilson, the drummer of Weezer, in front of thousands of screaming fans? Granted I wouldn't call him "average" - but he's certainly not an athlete. He's a musician. This catch makes me very happy, like I'm a little kid againthrowing a tennis ball around the house. This video taps into my inner child big time. Plus, I am a very big Weezer fan and love the way Rivers doesn't really know what's going on once Patrick makes the catch and everyone in the audience goes nuts.
And let's take a look at this one real quick:
This is just a real pimp move. This guy is just as cool as they come. And I usually hate it when YouTubers add music to a live clip - give me cinema verite! - but this music really enhaces the humor of this video. DannyMoney's grade: CHUGTASTIC!
