Fun with Funny

Barataria - The work of Erik Hare

Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies.
 – E B White.

What makes something funny?  It turns out that there are many different Humor Theories and none of them are funny.  That may seem like a problem right there, but the irony that you expect it to be funny and it isn’t could be funny if you … Hey!  Wait!

OK, so this duck walks into a bar and asks the bartender, “Why is it so often a duck?” and the bartender says, “Look, if you want to analyze stereotypes you could ask why it’s always a bar.”  The duck shrugs his wings, sits down, and gets so hammered he doesn’t even remember pecking to death the priest, the rabbi, and the lawyer.

Why People Ride Trains: Its All About Service

ntbraymer

By Noel T. Braymer

People travel, by train or by other modes for many reasons. These include work, business, pleasure, to visit family, friends or for an once in a lifetime experience. Any mode of transportation that someone depends on a carrier is a service. People like good service and are unhappy when service is poor. Many factors make up good service with rail service. For a commuter going to work, a major factor is getting to work on time. For someone getting a sleeper on a long distance train, service includes a good meal, great scenery, working toilets and the chance to talk to interesting people on the train. For many people in between its being able to go where you want to go, when you want to be there with reasonable comfort, safety and price. This all sounds so basic, but is not always available.

Music, Food and WHISKEY – oh my! This New Event featuring Dan Auerbach is Taking over Brooklyn in June

Have to check travel schedule!!!!!!!

Mary in Manhattan

Dan Auerbach is coming? Say no more. He’s the genius musician who I’ve seen in concert with BOTH of his bands: The Black Keys and The Arcs. But wait…Dan is going to be paired with some serious whiskey brands for this event in Brooklyn called The WhiskyX Spirit Experience.

whiskybrooklyn

On June 8th at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, there is going to be a completely different kind of event experience – 1 part whiskey, 1 part food and 1 part music. This is exactly the kind of cocktail of an event I want to go to. So I am. (Full disclosure, I’ve been invited on a complimentary media pass).

What/who promises to be there?

  • Dan Auerbach – LIVE! He’ll be debuting music from his new album.
  • Shuttle busses from certain subway stations! AMAZING, DUDE. I haven’t heard about this kind of service from many events. I hope it’s awesome. Will definitely…
