Layers: The Weinbachs Steal The Show at VINTAGE BASEMENT

Layers: The Weinbachs Steal The Show at VINTAGE BASEMENT

Walls are not equivalent to DNA. Walls were not equivalent to DNA 20 years ago, and the chances of them becoming like DNA anytime soon is unlikely. I’m not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings. There’s just no other way for me to say it other than: Walls are not equivalent to DNA. I say this […]

Layers: TINDER LIVE! with Lane Moore Is Not Just A Show, It’s An Event

Winner Winner Chicken… Tinder? That sounds like an appealing description of myself. Now I’m ready. Look! I just got a message from… Feel? Is Feel even a person? The message is a GIF of a rat eating a salad, followed by an encompassing “same”. At this point I’m blushing. What should I say? The only […]

Layers: NATASHA VAYNBLAT – A ‘Breakout Artist’ Making It Look Easy

“It’s going to be a long night,” the coat check clerk tells me, motioning to the crowd. Having recently transitioned to third shift work, I can relate. The night has only just begun, and I still have to go to work. I’ve just barely managed to sneak in enough time before my shift to visit […]

Layers: WET TUX – A Red Carpet Late Night Affair

It’s a simple conceit: In the aftermath of the apocalypse, those who are useful – scientists, doctors, engineers – set out to build a better world. Those with no skills, the dregs, the bottom of the barrel, become society’s entertainers. They’ve decided to put on a late night talk show. If you’re not laughing yet, […]

Layers: You Can’t Have A MEDIAWITCH FUN FEST without Some Comedy Spells

I’ve been saying this for a while, but I really want everyone in the Marvel universe to get into paganism. Why? Well for one, witches love reading, and I don’t know how many (if any) Marvel characters are literate. Like Iron Man. I know he’s rich. I’ve seen his house. Yet, I’ve never seen him […]

Layers: Navigating The Comedy Depths of TRUTH SERUM at Q.E.D.

Everything in this article that I am about to discuss is the complete truth. No, of course I’ve never lied in other articles! Save embellishment for the law; I’m only interested in the truth. There are many types of truths: water truths, circumcised truths, and my personal favorite: comedic truths. The truth hurts yes, but […]

Layers: Let’s Talk About GIANMARCO SORESI’s “One Sided Conversation”

Therapy can be very therapeutic. That’s what my therapist told me. Also, my therapist never refers to me as a patient or client and only refers to me as her therapute. I don’t know why. But, I do know that no session that I’ve had with my therapist has been quite as therapeutic as Gianmarco […]

Layers: A Carefully Crafted Plot Summary and Analysis of QUICKIE FEST V

I spent hours excavating the internet for some sort of recap on Quickie Fest V. I checked everywhere: SparkNotes, Cliff Bar Notes, and coolmathgames.com but found nothing. I was shocked, especially since I swore I saw a representative from coolmathgames there. Therefore, I took it upon myself to write my own Plot Summary and Analysis […]

Layers: Everyone and Anyone Should Pick Up ROBERT DEAN’s “(It’s Not Easy) Being Dean” Out TODAY on Sure Thing Records

When I first saw the title of ROBERT DEAN’s new comedy album (It’s Not Easy) Being Dean, I instantly recalled childhood memories of listening to that beloved Muppet, Kermit the Frog, singing his identifyingly poignant tune. Then I remembered one of the lines of It’s Not Easy Beong Green, “and people tend to pass you […]
