My New Best Friends are now the KTLA Morning Show

Yesterday, I mistakenly mentioned I was going to be on "Good Day LA", Well, I lied. Only because I didn't think you could handle the true awesomeness of the fact that I was ACTUALLY going to be co-hosting "The KTLA Morning Show."

Those Guys Kick All The Other Morning Shows Asses.

Some Highlights From The Interview Include A Roundtable Discussion About:

-How Hillary Clinton Should Start Wearing a Nascar Advertising Sponsored Outfit to Help Campaign Funding.

-Alec Baldwin Should Start a New Business Of Leaving People's Out Going Messages. He'll frighten you into talking after the beep.

-The Failed Human Giant Sketch "Farting Dead Zone"

Do You like The Satellite Radio well Human Giant is going to be on Playboy Radio on Sirius This Thursday Morning (4/26). We 'd love it if you'd call in to the show 1(877) 205.9796. The show can be heard by SIRIUS radio owners subscribing to Playboy Radio – Channel 198. Between the hours of 7am and 10am PST and 10am – 1pm EST. Visit www.playboyradio.com for more information.

Stay up Late or Set Your Tivos for Last Call with Carson Daly on Thursday Night (or should I say Friday Morning). When Rob Paul and Aziz will be guests on the show and yes, their will be a musical performance by us!

Finally I've been getting a lot of letters from people who notice that the Human Giant Shows that air on Thursday Night at 10:30PM are different than the ones that air in the reruns and they are right. We add a brand new sketch in our reruns...you can find all those sketches you might of missed at TheHumanGiant.com in the Videos Section. (By the way, please don't stop watching the show the night it airs, because that would really screw up those people who make decisions on things like a 2nd season based on stuff like Ratings!)

My Obsession with "Firehouse Dog" does not go unnoticed

Before He Loses His Toupee


Over the last few weeks you have read about my obsession with the Major Motion Picture "Firehouse Dog", well through the power of the internet, I have come one step closer to meeting above mentioned dog. The Co-Writer and Producer of the film Mike Werb (Writer of Face-Off and The Mask) left a comment on my blogs and has proved to be a really cool guy with a great sense of humor and I wanted to share it with you. But 1st, promise me that you'll make the "Firehouse Dog" Your Myspace Friend right now.

NOTE: After looking at his page, I think Firehous Dog (AKA Rexxx) might be a Anti-Humanite because only dogs are in his Top 15...Don't pull an Imus on us Firehouse Dog let Humans into your top friends.

Here's the post....

mike werb has left a new comment on your post "Doug Benson and I Talk about Movies":

paul: you appear to be the only reviewer to not mention the dump in joe's stew. a stunt many critics took a big dump on us for. it was in character. at this point rexxx has patrician tastes. He hasn't suffered such indignities since his circus days.

hmmm. why did i sound off about that? read the orlando sentinel.

anyway, i particularly enjoyed your rant about the dog's toupee and that the dog just wasn't cuddly. what did you think of Lola's hairpiece?

btw, at one point i proposed calling the film "one strange dog" but that went nowhere. as is our box office, apparently.

anyway, i totally enjoyed the podcast and will forward it to todd holland, bruce greenwood, michael colleary and claire-dee lim.

thanks for being one of rexxx's
"friends." he's glad to have you!

mike werb

producer, co-writer firehouse dog

-FYI: If Bruce Greenwood actually listens to the Podcast, That would be hilarious, and secondly, I apologize for calling you Bruce Davidson. You are better than him and Aidan Quinn.

Long Live Fire House Dog!

Some Things I've Learned From Playing Guitar Hero 2

First of all, if you don't have Guitar Hero 2 For the Xbox or Playstation, You are a jerk! But you can change that, all you have to do is stop whatever you are doing right now, run out to the street, mug an old lady, go to your local Electronics Boutique and buy one.

I guarantee you it will change your life!

Case in Point: This Dude's Mind is Blown

I'll admit for awhile I was that dude who mocked the guys/girls who sat in the video game demo area at Best Buy for hours on end playing Guitar Hero. In my mind it was as ridiculous as that Donkey Kong game where you beat drums to make him run around. But then I picked up my plastic ax and now I am hooked!

However, there are a few things you need to know, that the instruction book won't tell you

1.) No matter how cool you think you look while playing . You Definitely Don't Look Cool.

2.) "Heart Shaped Box" is deceptively hard to play...No wonder why Kurt Cobain Killed Himself (..Too Soon?)

3.) It's hard to impress house guests when you have a self decorated plastic children's toy lying on your couch...and you don't have kids.

3.2) While we are on the topic of decorating the guitar, if you are over 25...Don't.

4.) No matter what you do don't call it a "Guitar Version of SIMON"...It's Very Different and cooler.

5.) Don't exccessively celebrate or bow at the end of the song, even if you get 100% accuracy. I know you are happy but I guarantee you, that will be the precise moment your hot next store neighbor looks across the way at you and sees you standing in your PJ's, playing with a children's toy, and blowing kisses to your TV. Awkward.

Besides those rules have fun being a pretend rockstar and remember if you practice hard enough, you still won't have any idea how to play a real guitar and I'm fine with that.

My 1st Real Fan Letter

One of the best parts of doing all this comedy/acting stuff is the connection you can make with people without ever meeting them. I always love to know that I have made a solid connection and that someone out there really respects my work. Like this guy....



Wow! This guy really gets me. He knows that not only am I am a "great actor" but I also have "exceptional communication skills." I applaud him for his kind words and his ability to remain familiar yet vague at all times. Case in point... "you play a variety of parts and have the ability to capture the audience with your adaption of each character" YES! I do. Finally this guy gets me.

It feels so good to know that he thought my performance of "Grim Reaper" was terrific. Most people (including my mom) couldn't even recognize me in that scene, considering the fact I was wearing a mask and I had no lines and I was standing in a sea of similiarly dressed people, but this guy really got it and really enjoyed it.

I was also impressed by his ability to Time Travel and start watching the Human Giant weeks before it aired. My role of "Paul" is amazing (if i can say so myself) and I'm glad someone finally recognized the fact that through it all, I have done it all with "style, diginity, and ability"

Yes this is a TRUE FAN.

The Reviews are In
I want share with you some of my favorite reviews of the show (so far)

My Favorite Review That Uses Nonsense Words
Bonker-fest
"Human Giant" (10:30 p.m., MTV). Series premiere. Welcome to the Short Attention Span Funhouse. Daffy dementia reigns in funny, quick-hit bits as the four-member Human Giant comedy troupe -- Aziz Ansari, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer and Jason Wolmer -- bring their brand of bonkers, short-film lunacy to cable. It's all soaked in the rock 'n' roll attitude of alternative chucklehead wit, mixed with You Tube Nation viral vidiocy. Let's get mirthfully twisted.

My Favorite Confused Review
"My biggest complaint of them all, however, is why call the show Human Giant? The whole time I was watching the show, I kept asking myself, "What does this have to do with a human giant?" It boggled my mind and still to this moment and I am confused. Any ideas?" (If you do have an answer email Marla Horenbein TV Crtice for the Good 5 Cent Cigar Univ of Rhode Island's Student Paper)

Behind the Scenes
Finally if you have seen Episode 1 Get a Look Behind the Scenes of the Ghostface Short via Camera Phone Papparazi, from someone who lived in an apartment above the street we were shooting on.

Could This Be the Most Insane Movie Ever?

PITCH MEETING FOR THE MOST INSANE MOVIE EVER
(Taken from an Actual Recording)

Pitch Guy: The movie is called Firehouse Dog

Studio Guy: I Love it. Is it about a dog who lives in a Firehouse?

PG: No. It's about a celebrity dog, who is a super famous actor.

SG: How Famous?

PG: He has a red carpet leading to his trailer.

SG: Interesting and believable. Continue..

PG: Okay, so while shooting his latest film "Terrier at 20,000 Feet"

SG: What's it about?

PG: Honestly it's a rip off of Air Force One, anyway his parachute doesn't open and he lands in a truck of tomatoes and he is left to fend for himself on the streets because no one recognizes him.

SG: Why?

PG: Because his toupee has been ripped off in the crash landing.

SG: Now it makes sense, Dog look so different without their toupees, I love it.

PG: So the dog is lost on the streets, the pound tries to capture him, but he's so good at stunts he alludes them by doing elaborate and some might say unneccesary flips.

SG: You can't have enough unneccessary flips.

PG: Thank God you said that.

SG: Tell me what about this firehouse?

PG: Glad you asked..There is this Dad, someone like Aidan Quinn but not as famous. His wife is dead and he has a son....And he's a fireman!

SG: Wait, is this the same movie?

PG: Yup.

SG: Great.

PG: And by the way, get this, the fireman, doesn't know how to use a firepole.

SG: HAHA...What about the dog?

PG: Right. Good point. The son is lonely and one day is attacked by the stunt dog. The dog burps in the lonely kid's face and they become friends. So he takes the dog home.

SG: Ah, to the firehouse.

PG: No. He takes him home to a normal house.

SG: But..the title.

PG: Wait for it. Anyway the dog loves beef jerky but the Dad has control issues and wants the dog out of his house ASAP.

SG: Touching.

PG: I know. So while putting up flyers for a FOUND dog, the dog does some crazy stunts on a skateboard in a school parking lot. Which involves some more unneccesary flips. The kid says, "What else you got?" and him and the dog skateboard to a Marroon 5 song.

SG: PERFECT. Maybe Marroon 5 is too hip though we need something less recognizable.

PG: I'm on it. Anyway the Dad caves in and lets his son keep the dog and then the dog visits the Dad at firehouse and uses the firepole

SG: Is that possible?

PG: I don't know. Anyway the dog starts fighting fires and with no training whatsoever the dog saves the day the 1st time he goes to a fire. The dad loves the dog and steals him from his son. The Mayor gives the dog the key to the city

SG: What about the boy?

PG: Uh...Right..He falls in love. With some girl that we establish late in the 3rd act.

SG: Then what happens?

PG: I don't know. The dog goes back to Hollywood makes a movie about his adventures and calls it..... "Firehouse Dog".

SG: Perfection.

PG: So how much of this crack do you want?

SG: How about a kilo.

PG: Great. Here's the Crack and here's my Script.

9 MONTHS LATER!
