We’re back in NY for a day! It’s nice to be back, we’re doing a show in Brooklyn tonight and then we drive to Boston for a show tomorrow. Zach and I taped some stuff over at Fuse today. It was neat to be back in our old studio. All of the crew and make-up people were still there! It was fun.
It’s been a while since I updated this (things got really busy for a bit and I had no time ) – so let me try and think of what’s happened – oh! They started the official ‘Miss March’ campaign. Maybe you’ve seen ads on tv or on myspace, etc. They put an ad on YouTube and our trailer got 1.7 million hits in one day. We were the #1 viewed video on all of YouTube for 24 hours! What else ….
We went to Ohio and did some shows! And I got to see my friend from Akron!
Then we went to Washington DC and we went to the Spy museum. I bought a ‘lie detector’ machine that you put your hand on and it’s supposed to shock you if you lie – but we found out that it basically just shocks everyone after 15 seconds. So we’ve been drinking on the bus and just shocking ourselves since then.
We stayed in a haunted hotel in State College, Pennsylvania – then we stayed in a normal hotel in Philadelphia. Josh Fadem, Sam and I were hanging out on the hotel balcony and I gave Fadem a shocking pen that I also bought at the spy museum. It got him and he threw it off the roof. Then everyone was sad. We went to see the Liberty Bell and Emo Phillips was there!
Then we did a really fun show and drove up here to NY. That’s brings us about current. I’ll try to update more for the next leg of the trip! Boston’s next, then Raleigh and then we go tour the South! Hope to see you somewhere along the way!

Hey everybody! ¬†Well I haven’t bought any new shirts since the last post, but I’m calling this a T-shirt post anyways ‘cuz we’re back in NYC for a couple days and I got a BUNCH of Whitest Kids t-shirts out of storage! ¬†Hooray! ¬†Come one, come all! ¬†They have a gun on them and will probably only be available on this tour, so if you come see us, grab one!
Sorry, that wasn’t supposed to be a commercial. ¬†We had a GREAT show in Philly last night! ¬†So much fun, good job Philadelphia-ites! ¬†We sold the place out and one of the dudes that worked there said we sold it out “like Cradle of Filth.” ¬†I’m not really sure what that means but I’m taking it as a HUGE compliment.
We have a show in Brooklyn tomorrow! ¬†We’ve never actually done a big, full-on WKUK show in Brooklyn before even though we all live there! ¬†Should be fun! ¬†Then on to Boston then we’re hittin’ the South and Florida and Texas! ¬†I’m bringin’ sunglasses!
Alright you know this game. ¬†You kill one, you have sex with one and then you never have to see again, and the last you marry but never have sex with. ¬†Give explanations too.
- Michael Moore
- a fart
- Sam’s mom
I’ll go through the comments after two weeks and let you know who wins.
So for the past 5 days Zach and Fadem have been quoting this sketch that they’ve seen online, constantly. ¬†It was getting a little annoying cause I didn’t know what they were talking about. ¬†A day ago, I finally got to see it and now I can’t stop quoting it. The sketch group is called Good Neighbor Stuff and here’s the link to the sketch. ¬†Enjoy!
Well I haven’t found any good shirts the last couple days. ¬†This tour has not been as fruitful t-shirt-wise as the one in 2006. ¬†But we are having a BLAST! ¬†It’s awesome to meet so many people across the country who love poop jokes as much as we do!
We’re in Columbus Ohio tonight! ¬†Come check us out! ¬†It’ll be fun! ¬†
Well that’s really it for now. ¬†Even though I haven’t found any more crazy t-shirts, I wanted to write so you all don’t think I got killed for wearing one of those last two.
Keep the dream alive (what?)!
COPS GOT US!
“The Man” pulled us over as soon as we got to Oklahoma! I think it was just out of curiosity since we’re in giant buses with our faces on the side of them. But besides that Oklahoma was really cool! It’s really, really windy here! Fadem says it’s because the state is so flat. That’s why they have tornados all the time.
What else happened since last time …
I got altitude sickness in Denver. I got that when we played in Aspen too.
I guess I’m bad at acclimating.
OH!!! PROSTITUTES!! I totally forgot to tell you about the prostitutes! When we were in Tempe, AZ, we got invited to a Playboy party at a nightclub. I got bored and started going around the club, interviewing people with our film crew and telling them that I was working for a new TV show Lil Wayne was producing (I met Chamillionaire that way – he was really nice!) So I was interviewing this one lady and this dude who was with us asked me to put in a good word for him. I told the lady that our friend thought she was cute and then I left to interview other people.
Anyway, she turned out to be a prostitute and when I went to get on the bus there were all her prostitute friends on there! So we had to tell them all to get off the bus and they got mad. It was funny.
Well, that’s all for now. Loveyoubye
