Thanksgiving Break

Since it's a short week and I haven't posted, I think we're gonna close shop here in Rubinville until after the holiday.

I'm thankful for so many things this year particularly because so many things in my life have fallen into place.  One of those things is the support I get from all the people who come see me perform, send me e-mails or Facebook/MySpace messages and comment right here.  So thank you all and have a happy Thanksgiving.

Gobble, gobble...

Right Off The Press


There's an interview with me in today's Metro Newspaper.  It's so cold out there though, don't bother go picking up a copy, just click here the picture above and it will magically get bigger...

Piracy! (Not The Good Kind)

A bunch of pirates have hijacked a Saudi Arabian ship, causing this man, Saudi Prince Saud al-Faisal to say, "Piracy, like terrorism, is a disease which is against everybody, and everybody must address it together."

Strange, coming from a guy who's country 15 of the 19 September 11th terrorists came from.

(Also strange is that this was the best picture I could find of the guy.  Someone from Central Casting really needs to get him booked as a bad guy in the next Bond.)

Alright, I'm heading out to the high-seas to see what's-what about all this pirate business.  Full post tomorrow...

Great Scott!

It was just reported that Christopher Llyod has lost his 11 million dollar home in the California wildfires.  There is good news for Marty McFly, however, because my sources say that Llyod was able to get the plans for the Flux Capacitor out of the house in time.

Of course now there is the whole issue about finding 1.21 jiggawatts of electricity, but I guess one thing at a time.  

Anyone got anything good cooking on a Monday night?

TV Time


Hot Gay Comics debuts tonight on here! I host the debut episode and it features three of my favorite comics and best friends, Mike Singer, Anne Neczypor and Shawn Hollenbach. If you don't catch it tonight at 8 pm, don't worry, it will be repeating plenty and of course you can get it On Demand anytime. Come to think of it, you could watch me over and over and over, for all 48 hours of the weekend. If you can think of anything better to do, I'd sure like to hear it.

T-Minus 4 hours and counting...

Rubinville Sneak Peak

As promised, here is a sneak peak clip of the premiere episode of Hot Gay Comics, debuting this Friday. Now excuse me, I'm off to play with the Mormons...


There's an intersting article from the AP about how The Cosby Show helped pave the way for Barack Obama to become president. Thank god the show wasn't about an ignorant, ex-beauty queen from Alaska.

I guess I'm a bit ahead of the times when it comes to Cosby's influence. I was about five years old when I saw his HBO special Himself and that was when I first started trying to make people laugh. So, by using some nifty logic, you could say that I, too, paved the way for Obama.

Speaking of paving the way, I've had a couple people take me up on the offer of going down to the Prop 8 rally at the Church of Latter Day Saints later tonight. Emma is frothing at the mouth after a day of staring at Mitt Romney's meat-laden genitals, so I'm expecting a pretty fantastic protest.

"Mitt Romney's meat-laden gentials." There's a visual for ya...

Hang Time

Not bad for a white guy, right?

That's me playing ball yesterday, finally getting to run-off some of my post-election madness. I scored 28, but we lost in overtime. It was fixed! Fixed, I say!

The country continues to be feel the Obama-Glow. There is a real sense that some sort of collective headache is gone and that maybe we can get back to being the country we all used to believe in. The real question is now are we counting the days until Obama officially takes over or are we just counting the days until George goes out to pasture?

I know that it is just semantics yet I'm still counting the George days more.

Circuit City has filed for bankruptcy today. I assume that means that the government will take it over and start selling Blu-ray players at a 5 percent discount.

There is a big protest on Wednesday outside the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints because of all the money they gave to support Prop 8 in California. It's only about 15 blocks from my apartment so I will be going for sure if any of you want to join. I am also training Emma to bite mormons, though I don't know if putting meat on a giant cardboard cutout of Mitt Romney's genitals will work.

And on that note, I have to head out and get some meat. Strangely, I already have a giant cardboard cutout of Mitt Romney, please don't ask why...

Election Review


The post-election Topical has just been posted...

Rubinville Projects Obama Win


None of the networks have done it yet, but I am officially projecting Barack Obama as the next president of the United States.

All my thoughts on this will be discussed on tomorrow's Topical. Now excuse me while I finish this bottle of wine and await the coronation...

Help Me Obi-Wan, You're My Only Hope


Well, it's only 7:15 and CNN has offered us the first utterly ridiculous moment of the night. Wolf Blitzer is standing in the Situation Room talking to a hologram of reporter Jessica Yellin. That's right, a HOLOGRAM.

Wolf ended their conversation by saying, "You're a terrific hologram."

Let's just hope she manages to get Death Star plans to the rebel leaders in time...

Palin Party Pooper


So here it is, a picture of the knob I turned right after I opened a curtain and just before I pulled a lever.

Now I know what a day at the job for Joe the Plumber is like.

(Did that joke fully make sense?)

More pictures and updates throughout the day...

One Small Step


I have done my duty as an American and voted for a socialist. Here, you can see me just moments before voting. Though I was highly caffeinated I was able to pull the lever without incident.

Pictures from inside the booth on the way...

Vote! (Unless You Disagree With Me)


So, it all comes down to this. After almost two years of debates, commercials, lies, truths, half-truth, quarter-truths, sexism, racism, pandering, drivel and hubris, we are finally here. I am meeting comedian and friend Anne Neczypor to go vote in just a few minutes. I highly recommend that you go vote with a comedian too, e-mail me if you need one to meet you at your local polling station.

I'll post a couple times tonight as the results roll in. I have already purchased a couple bottles of wine for me and extra treats for Emma.

Alright, time to shower and put on my voting outfit. I plan on taking a picture when I am in the voting booth, so check back here at about shortly...

One Middle Finger, One More Day

With only one day left before the election, Barack Obama made his feelings about John McCain pretty clear with his use of the middle finger in this clip below...

While it seems like it might've been unintentional or even subconscious, he also did this to Hillary a few months ago. You know the old saying, where there is a finger, there is fire.

So, one more day and then we can start preparing for 2012. We are doing Topical early on Wednesday morning, so you'll be able to listen earlier in the day to either our feelings on the recount or the riots, depending on how it all shakes out.

Okay, I'm gonna take Emma to go vote. Dog's are allowed to vote early here in NYC, and even though she is voting for Nader, I promised I'd take her...
