If You Do One Thing in 2009

Go see Avatar. Saw it yesterday in IMAX 3D, and it was spectacular. For now on I'm doing everything in IMAX 3D. Yup, that's right, eating, sleeping, sexing and blogging will all be in IMAX 3D. Is the world ready for it? That's what we'll find out in 2010.

Happy New Year, everyone.

Pick the Porn Star


Not only did Ben and I interview the porntastic Mason Wyler for this week's Six Pack, but we also went out with him last week in NYC. Sure he was recognized a little more than the two of us, but sometimes one does need their ego checked.

Now, tell me, which one of us is the porn star, which the comedian, and which the DJ?

Tricky, ain't it?

Life in the Fastlane

I've been running around like a crazy person the last couple days, but fear not, I haven't forgotten about the good citizens of Rubinville. Actually, I'm writing this while on a train out to New Jersey, aka the state that garbage built.* This trip is to help a buddy move some furniture around his house.

Oh, the life of a star.

New Six Pack up tomorrow featuring our interiew with porn star Mason Wyler and a brand new Craigslist Missed Connections Set to Lovesongs with some holiday spirit.

*It should be noted that despite the smell, I do really like Jersey and many friends and family live there. But can't they just spray some Febreeze every now and again?

Kinda a Witness to Murder

Whoa, looks like this situation across the street is way worse than as first reported. Turns out four people are dead, three by being shot and the forth from falling off the roof. It's the lead story on all the local news and also was picked up by the cable news channels.

It's really wierd watching something on TV that is happening just feet from you. I'm tempted to call CNN and offer Wolf Blitzer my couch if he wants to do some actual reporting outside of The Situation Room.

With all this media standing right outside my door I should either go bring them hot chocolate or do an improptu comedy show.

Hmm, it looks like I'm out of hot chocolate, so...

Upper West Siiiiiiiiiiide

As any of you loyal readers know, I live on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, which in my humble opinion is the best part of NYC. It's a great mix of young and old, poor and rich, gay and straight, and, as of today, shot and not-shot.

Yes, that's right, someone was just shot directly across the street from my building.

No, it wasn't me, but wouldn't that have been something if I had gotten shot and my last breath on Earth was taken while writing this? Now that's commitment.

I snapped that picture about five minutes ago and rumor was that the shooter was holed up inside the building. I'm gonna take Emma out to sniff around and see if we can find some clues.

Dave Rubin: Comedian/Murder Inspector*

*That's what they call people who take their dogs for walks near crime scenes, right?

My team won the NYC Gay Basketball Championship game last night, giving me my third ever basketball title. (One in the Urban-Pro League and one in the Chelsea Piers League before this.) I only scored five points but I had this big dunk near the end to help put the game away.

Yes, I look black while playing basketball, that's just how it is...

Two Men and a Boat


That's Ben and I during our Friday night, first-ever, live Six Pack, aboard the Liberty of the Seas. The theater sat an amazing 1,400 people (hard to believe on a boat), and I'd say about 90 percent of our group was there to laugh and have a good time. For reasons too convoluted to explain, I actually came out in red high-heels, but somehow there is no photographic evidence of it, at least from what I've been sent, so far. (I probably should count my lucky stars for that.)

We've incorporated much of the live show in Six Pack #25, which you can listen to by visiting our website or just clicking here.

I must say that the hardest part of not being on a cruise after a week of being on one is returning to a non-buffet lifestyle. I had pizza for dinner last night and so wanted to finish it off with some baked beans and a waffle...

Back to Reality


I'm still waiting for the pics from the cruise to be sent over to me, so in the meantime this artistic picture of four-feet and two flip-flops will have to suffice. But which feet are mine, and which are Ben's? You decide.

The trip was an absolutely fantastic week of sun, relaxing, drinking and eating. (In no particular order.) Six Pack#25, should be up in a day or two with the full wrap-up.

In the meantime I have about 50 new buffet jokes I need to write down...

I'm writing this week off as payback for many years of crappy comedy gigs. 'Nuf said...

Room with a View

The trip to the Caribbean has been amazing so far. Lots of sun and pool and meeting great people. Only have a second to check in, but here is a quick shot of Ben and I on our balcony. It looks like we're about to steer directly into the ship behind us, so I should probably go tell someone.

Hope all is well on land...
