poop, poop, poop, sudan, quotes, highschool, exxon, rocketboom, smearing


I hope the interaction between Rocketboom and ZeFrank will continue....maybe take it to another level in some kind of
Days of Our Lives fashion or is that All My Children?

Posted by: fritz at April 28, 2006 01:46 PM


You are funny! Keep it up. I know, I know , SHIT! another new viewer. Damn!

Posted by: Karl at April 28, 2006 01:47 PM

Ze, I'm sorry about the hair crack. Had I seen your high school picture yesterday, I would have known that your current style is an improvment.

Posted by: Aimee at April 28, 2006 01:47 PM

Ze, your highschool hair is!

Posted by: John at April 28, 2006 01:48 PM

I'm in a cranky mood today too Ze. Don't feel bad. I'll try to think good thoughts for both of us. Have a wonderful weekend not thinking for us. Us, gus, bus.

Posted by: Thomas Browne [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 01:50 PM

technically there's no such thing as an "unquote" in saying "quote-unquote." supposed to say "end quote" but then it just sounds weird. wish i could watch the old archived shows.

Posted by: onehugeace at April 28, 2006 01:51 PM

You and Amanda should "get together"...

Posted by: Rick at April 28, 2006 01:54 PM


big tings gwaaaaaaaaan fi Ze Frank!

good up your chest

Posted by: jeff at April 28, 2006 02:04 PM

yeah, you guys should totally do it.

Posted by: nub at April 28, 2006 02:04 PM

that's it. i'm hooked. bookmarked with thanks.

Posted by: breen at April 28, 2006 02:05 PM

no no! do not let this become a soap opera between the real deal and those who steal. i told you amanda just wanted you for your superior materials. but don't worry. we're here for you. we like you best. ps: nice hair cut

Posted by: LezaLongEEEza [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 02:06 PM


I tricked you. I'm already a "new" viewer and you didn't even have a chance to freak me out. Yet.

I have an idea for someone design-inclined: a SportsRacer logo using a photo of a duck when it's dipping its head into a shallow lake in order to scrounge around the filth at the bottom of said lake for tasty morsels. All passersby can see from the shore is a duck tail and two orange legs flapping about.

It's classic.

Posted by: Jeff at April 28, 2006 02:08 PM

you didn't show them my power move :(

great show as ever though ^_^

Posted by: leo [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 02:13 PM

I guess all the first time viewers have left?

Bring back the archives! I like flipping through them once in a while. It give me something to do at work.

YOU are Awesomeness.

Maybe one day I can have a PowerMove(r) too.

Posted by: Josh at April 28, 2006 02:14 PM

no wait


Posted by: leo [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 02:15 PM

Whoa, I feel like I don't like people too!

But you...I like.

Posted by: Miss Anne Thropic at April 28, 2006 02:15 PM

I just saw the AC vblog for today...
Perhaps it´s just that I´m jealous, but I see no chemistry between you two.

Ze: you rock.
Hope the night has worth the sleep.
Sweet nap, sweety

Posted by: LaLe [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 02:16 PM

leo - that link don't work...

also (whispering quietly)
the archives are back...just use the navigation on top of the videos...

Posted by: ze frank at April 28, 2006 02:16 PM

can i play Atheist?

Posted by: radar at April 28, 2006 02:17 PM

Ze! How long does it take you to think up this "ze-ny" stuff? I'm guessing it ranges from a few nanoseconds to "maybe" three minutes. You probably don't have much more "time" than that with which to work since being a "New Yorker" must be quite demanding.

Posted by: mdj at April 28, 2006 02:17 PM

Mmmmmm... poop.

Good power move Leo.

Posted by: DannoHung [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 02:20 PM

Hey Max, that Rocketboom lady is just amateur hour. You da real shiznit.

Posted by: MrMalaise [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 02:21 PM

Sure is a frenzy of pooping on this show.

Posted by: nab at April 28, 2006 02:25 PM

You ROCK! love the Atheist...i wanna play!

sorry your night sucked..don't be grouchy--it's Friday for craps sake.

oh damn..gotta take my duckie for a poop.

Posted by: stargirl [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 02:26 PM

the video game industry actually made a googleplex last year. I feel I need to correct you on this fact.

Posted by: Uberdoink at April 28, 2006 02:28 PM

That rocketboom site is further proof that women just aren't funny, no matter how hard they try. I'd still do her, though.

Posted by: Pete at April 28, 2006 02:37 PM

I hope this RB/theshow cross-chat doesn't turn into another of those Brooklyn-Manhattan things.

You've each got your niche and you each play them for all they are worth.

When I found you both I killed my TV.

Um, I mean, it died all by itself. Really.

(oh shit)

Posted by: inkslave at April 28, 2006 02:47 PM


Hi, ex-RB viewer, born again vlog viewer here. I just wanted to say...

Thanks. Your show is fantastic.


Posted by: James at April 28, 2006 02:50 PM

Dude, are you unemployed? How do you have so much time to do this every day?

Posted by: alan at April 28, 2006 02:56 PM

rb love, google ads... mmm...
dang, i wAs hoping for a sah-weet powermove to get me thru the weekend.

Posted by: sheldonschwartz [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 02:57 PM

By the by, for those who care:

"Sports Racer Theme" by Ze Frank for guitar.


(Sports racer, racing sports)


(What is your power move?)


(Sports racer!)

Posted by: Guy at April 28, 2006 02:58 PM

I found you today ("thanks" to RB) and have watched every archived episode available. I am also cranky, because I am hungover. You said in "March" that you were feeling crappy so that I don't have to... could you do that again?

Posted by: Jesse at April 28, 2006 03:01 PM

beep boop bop
ork ah ah
that means you love each other.
only in our dreams
---or maybe its real
like really happening

Posted by: J gilbert G at April 28, 2006 03:05 PM

Hey sports racers, there's lots of cool stuff here:

including Atheist in the games section to the lower right.

Ze didn't just become funny in 2006. There's been something funny about Ze for a long time.

Posted by: Dinah at April 28, 2006 03:06 PM

I have to say you're getting a bit anal....eventhough you and Amanda are becoming the "duckiest" couple in vlog world.

have a poopy weekend

P.S. I think think the shit smeering thing is more obvious than the hand washing. But then that's me.

Posted by: Lucana Man at April 28, 2006 03:06 PM

I like spirograph!

Posted by: francisco at April 28, 2006 03:10 PM

I think that this comment section is doomed to become one of those places where people attempt to make the first post after a new video. Only for the sake of bragging about the fact that they got the first post.

Either that or a place where they spam pointless and non-sequiter comments just to get mentioned on your show.

Posted by: wandering_nomad at April 28, 2006 03:29 PM

Just have to give a big thank you for providing the much needed,humor and quality entertainment for my day. By the way your intelligence is so sexy, haha keep it up.
Your new fan,

Posted by: Tara at April 28, 2006 03:31 PM

When you say my name, it's like you're talking just to me.

A long lost friend of mine saw your show today and heard my name. He called me and we're getting married now. Thanks ze.

Posted by: jasmine at April 28, 2006 03:38 PM

Poop! I tell ya Ze, you just get funnier everyday. Have a good weekend. Also, if you like duckies so much, why don't you just get one as a pet? You could keep it in the bathtub.

Posted by: Mr. Freak [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 03:48 PM

Please breed.

Posted by: LongGoneSquab at April 28, 2006 03:58 PM

oh, ze! funny, funny. you can blame ROCKETBOOM that i found your show. :)

Posted by: Matilda Riot at April 28, 2006 04:03 PM

Wow. You're like John Stewart only more reliably entertaining. Also, you don't have ads for cars ("Professional driver. Closed course.") or beer ("Enjoy ____ responsibly."). Good stuff.

Posted by: Mahalis at April 28, 2006 04:06 PM

I'm not sure about this Amanda Congdon character. I never heard of her or saw her prior to The Show, and I've known about Ze's site for 5 years now. And she's not nearly as funny as him, not because she's a girl (that was sexist, Pete), but because she just doesn't have the savois faire(sp?), je ne sais quoi(sp?), or sangfroid(sp?) of Ze Francois. I say Ze wins.

What's with the Google ads? They're kinda creeping me out...

Posted by: Carly at April 28, 2006 04:09 PM

Hmmmm. Has anyone ever seen ze and Amanda together...?

Posted by: inkslave [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 04:10 PM

Wow, that Amanda person is crazy. Either that, or she's pretending to be crazy which makes her even crazier.

Posted by: Lonnie Bruner at April 28, 2006 04:11 PM

...brain orgasms...Hahahaaaaha

Power moves and logo creation - nice brand interaction.

Where will you channel the energy you generate from your news perspective? Passive viewers no longer.

I sure as hell hope you have plans to make it out to this June. Alot of people could use it.

Posted by: tagami at April 28, 2006 04:13 PM

Trust it to be the crazy guy to tell it like it is...
You've restored my faith in American's, if just a little bit. Have a great weekend.

Posted by: The Dude at April 28, 2006 04:17 PM

vlog sex

maybe you and amanda should get a (chat) room next time...

Posted by: blinky at April 28, 2006 04:19 PM

So you and Amanda are friends...she is on her way to a sit com..that is if she can't create something profitable with, is that what you want? I'm curious.

You are much funnier than she are very intelligent but don't have to try to prove it everyday like she does (sorry Amanda)

You also have true comedic vision..and you are an art director so you know how to appeal visually.

Amanda doesn't understand these things, but she has, you know..

Rocketboom is DETERMINED to make MONEY from their may or may not but you could be a fantastic comedic actor on you own. (If you aren't an actor already)

Keep your site archived because if you hit it big, people will want to see all your early work.

I'm not blowing smoke.
Thanks for making us laugh.

Posted by: AlexK at April 28, 2006 04:22 PM

Well done. I laughed so hard I pooped. Work is sending me home.
Now go get some sleep.

Posted by: Isaac at April 28, 2006 04:25 PM

Stay away from Amanda!!!...she's going to be mine, YOU HEAR...MINE...MINE!!!

Posted by: W.O. at April 28, 2006 04:29 PM

but where are the kittens?

Posted by: KC at April 28, 2006 04:29 PM

you crazy clown ze, but i see you crying inside. boo hoo your guts all over the floor when the camera off. i cry too when i think. you poke many in the heart place.

Posted by: lil pookie at April 28, 2006 04:36 PM

i know i don't have to think but let me ask this:

why this most intense reaction by the congdon?

Posted by: nungee at April 28, 2006 04:46 PM

The archives all still seem to be there, for those with skills in typing and advanced pattern recognition.

Posted by: d at April 28, 2006 05:05 PM

haha .. nice "remix" ..

Posted by: minime at April 28, 2006 05:13 PM

You people are weird!

Did I mention, I like that in a person.

I'm an old ... er ... poop, but your weirdness is appreciated.

Posted by: Eclectic Floridian at April 28, 2006 05:14 PM

Your show is usually the highlight of my ass-hair farting infested day. Or, at least it was today.

I'm impelled to ask you: Do you blink?

Posted by: Kellah at April 28, 2006 05:18 PM

And just think, one week ago you were making Tom Cruise jokes and now all THIS. GREAT show Ze.

And thanks for the Rocketboom ref.


Posted by: deciderPB at April 28, 2006 05:21 PM

Your ducky obsession intruges me. Do you use Cyberduck for FTP? It has a ducky logo. It pwity

Posted by: Pilky at April 28, 2006 05:25 PM

Hey there Ze. I'm the sports anchor for my High School's daily news and announcement program. Before I started to read from the telemprompter about the Sports anncouncements, I reffered to the audience as SPORTS RACERS. I'm pretty sure that nobody knew what that was reffering to, but I did for you. I would even kill Jodie Foster for you.

Posted by: Bugenig-MAN at April 28, 2006 05:26 PM

I didn't sleep either. Global warming, methinks.

Posted by: Rick at April 28, 2006 05:33 PM


you're much funnier than amanda and too good for her. i reject this proposed coupling by some of the comments left. once again your show makes me very happy after a craptastic day.

Posted by: maria at April 28, 2006 05:39 PM

In all seriousness, everyone should e-mail CNN and tell them to take genocide out of the fucking quotation marks. Ain't nothin fake about what's going on in Darfur.

Posted by: complicite [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 06:03 PM

I, too, was in a crappy mood from a bad morning... until I watched your always-hilarious show.

I spent the rest of the day bopping around happily on my bike singing "Who likes the little little duckies in the pond? I do! I do! I do! I do! I do!" Ze, you're my hero. Keep it up.

Posted by: Brandi at April 28, 2006 06:12 PM

Dude, you have to be the funniest people I may have ever seen. No lie, you rival Conan O'brian as my favorite comedian. Brilliant news and humor wrapped up in a crunchy burrito. The crunch wrap supreme. "It's good to go". Yeah if I were to endorse thats how I'd do it. Tie it in seamlessly.

Posted by: Thomas Pease at April 28, 2006 06:26 PM

is rocketboom normally funny, did today just suck. Its like the show except not as well edited, and more random, but not in the good Family Guy way, in like a bad "I am so lame but think I am funny" way.

Posted by: Nathan at April 28, 2006 07:01 PM

Ze + Amanda = Duckies that say

Posted by: Ahmed [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 07:02 PM

I found you through Amanda too. Clever of you to get mentioned by her. An angry liberal! Woot woot. What a sur-prise! Anyhow, I was trying to add you through iTunes but couldn't find zeFrank or "the show" in the podcasts.

Posted by: rick at April 28, 2006 07:09 PM

Yeah, Ze, I know you probably won't care... but that whole Poop exchange thing scared me. True, it scared me into laughing for a while, but there was still fear.

And as far as your atheist game is concerned, I truly enjoye the humor behind it, as well as the Christian and Buddhist game... but Atheist know the world is round, so why put us on a flat, edged area? Just curious.

Posted by: Goober [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 07:12 PM

yes yes Yes YES!!!!!!!

Posted by: RingOfFire [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 07:12 PM

So, never ever posted to a "comments" before. I guess I'm a new viewer except that I managed to watch most of the archives minutes before they were taken down. Used to live in Windsor Terrace. How can you deal with all these peep's poops? Seriously.

Posted by: tormookie at April 28, 2006 07:15 PM

I have nothing to say. Nothing of depth that is. Just enjoying not having to think.

Thanks Ze. You da man.

Posted by: Patrick at April 28, 2006 07:16 PM

new user here. you didn't scare me off with your frightening stairs a few days ago. good show though. one problem I have with the site is that there is no archive! I mean sure, I could go back day by day by day by day by poop, but I don't even know what day it does start. so I'll just start watching here. you're funny, and have... hair...

so keep it up.

Posted by: AJ at April 28, 2006 07:16 PM

PS - I'm sorry about Amy's ass-hair too.

Posted by: RingOfFire [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 07:23 PM


I don't recommend Spirographing on the first date. Boggle, maybe.

(But under no circumstance should you do Origami before Spirographing!)

Posted by: RingOfFire [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 07:36 PM

i do enjoy your grumbling. :D

Posted by: spillingvelvet at April 28, 2006 07:57 PM

Y helo thar, Zefrank.

I really enjoy this video blog / vlog. I just wish you would blink... or wear really dark shades.

It's scaring me.

Posted by: Jesper Lillie at April 28, 2006 08:04 PM

So where do I send the engagement gift for you and Amy, and do I get it back if one of you bail at the alter?

Posted by: Stuckino at April 28, 2006 08:39 PM

Neeto! New bookmark! Love the show! I can't stop exclamating!

Posted by: U.N. Owen at April 28, 2006 08:46 PM

Great show. Never laughed so much. I esp liked the bit about a few days ago. How about an RSS feed with enclosures so I can subscribe to it with a podcatcher and so people can subscribe with iTunes.

Posted by: Dave Winer at April 28, 2006 08:48 PM

So, I checked out Rocketboom for the first time today, and Amanda gives me the creeps. I think she was trying to pastiche The Show, but whatever, I felt like she was looking into my soul or something, and not in a good way. So in counterpoint to some of the other comments, I request that the Ze Frongdon alliance be nixed.

I like my vlog's auteured and with a dash of lime, dammit.

Posted by: The G at April 28, 2006 08:48 PM

you must be over here because you're not over there.

e-mail is so hard and this is just too easy.

Here's goes
RE: Message Board

I like all of your ideas here, and I am enjoying the board; all I need now is a new job that will allow me to spend most of my working time "hanging arround." At least for a while, so that I can explore, become inspired, expand my horizons, until that big lotto money rolls in...

Anyway, I had an idea for a "forum" on "your" message board.

Is it possible, what I mean is, are you interested in other peoples ideas and adding them to this forum or is this just all about you, your stuff, your ideas, your moments in life, etc... which is ok, just thought I'd ask before I got into too much trouble.

Thanks for ze time.

Best Wishes,

Posted by: anna m at April 28, 2006 08:58 PM

I don't have anything to add. I only want to get a word in so that later on I can claim to not be a new viewer.

* poop *

Posted by: onlymike [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 09:02 PM

My husband and I watched rocketboom just to see what all the fuss was about and we both were not impressed. This girl is getting a sitcom? Ze, you are much, much funnier than she. Also, have you noticed that a few of your jokes are repeated on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart? I noticed that on the day McClellan stepped down. Or is it just that this administration lends itself to the same kind of jokes?

Posted by: Ecila at April 28, 2006 10:04 PM

if there were to be a crossover episode of the show and rocketboom, would the entire universe collapse from hilarity and WASP-ish phenotypes??

Posted by: Kiso at April 28, 2006 10:12 PM

I'm not much of a power move guy myself (except maybe on the toilet), but here are some really good ideas for you aspiring sports racers:

Posted by: monarchist at April 28, 2006 10:22 PM

Ze... do you actually read down this far when you have so many comments?

Also, will you be putting this show on iTunes? That would be totally sweet...

Or totally cool.... no. I need a better adjective.

Posted by: Scott D at April 28, 2006 10:48 PM

Ze.. what´s the deal with de adds?? They come and go..
Should I click on them? Would you get money if I do it? Is or is not Google your dear and glorious leader?

Posted by: LaLe [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 28, 2006 10:56 PM

That was great, Keep up the good work and thank you for entertaining me on a daily basis.

Posted by: Jeff at April 28, 2006 11:06 PM

hey, we don't need to bash RB b/c for a lot of people (including many people here), it led us here. RB is a different kind of show, and although ill be dishonest and say i think amanda's funnier than ze, RB does have some good content. it's like they explore the internet for me so i can spend more time failing college. but now ill have less time for that cuz of this show now.

Posted by: onehugeace at April 28, 2006 11:06 PM

Posted by: me at April 28, 2006 11:27 PM

can dance like you can was _very_

popular in high school...


Posted by: bowerbird at April 28, 2006 11:45 PM

Hey Ze, I know that you're thinking so we don't have to, but what if I really want to think? Am I still allowed?

Posted by: Nick at April 29, 2006 12:20 AM

The tension is palpable, so it's inevitable. Amanda and Ze will spawn, creating a fetus with vlog in utero. This child will be a god among men, and, more importantly, my child will have something entertaining to watch on the intarweb 4.0.

I, once again, have faith in mankind. Hurry, Amanda, use your powermove and impregnate Ze before all hope is lost.

Posted by: Nick at April 29, 2006 12:24 AM

You continue to amaze. Love this, and pretty much everything I've seen on your site in the past.

How long does each episode take to put together?

Wikipedia says: "Guilderland High School provides a comprehensive and challenging program that ensures that students will be successful in advanced educational studies, the work force or other post-graduate plans."
Clearly you've claimed an alma mater that is not your own.
Have those wristbands designed themselves yet? If not, will we have a chance to vote on the logo once all the submissions have been received by the June 1st deadline?

Posted by: Ralphie at April 29, 2006 01:15 AM

I really don't see what the fuss about RB is. I watched it yesterday to see why it's 'the shit' with the children these days and I was amazed that anyone would watch it for more than 50 seconds. Could that woman be more annoying? Probably, but I don't want to find out.

On a completely different note, if Ze and Amanda ever had a baby (and let's hope they don't), it would have the worlds largest eyeballs.

Posted by: Lennox at April 29, 2006 01:30 AM

Love it! Here's another vote for RSS with enclosures.

Posted by: Ian Gilman at April 29, 2006 02:04 AM

Looks like I picked a *damn* fine day to visit Planet Ze for the first time. Dude, I'm totally hooked and will now tear out my eyeballs in recognition of your greatness (after bookmarking, of course). Hope to have them (the eyes) surgically repaired by Monday. see ya (I hope)

Posted by: Postie Boy at April 29, 2006 02:12 AM

Does this count as a Power Move?

Posted by: Nic at April 29, 2006 02:17 AM

Dear Ze:

I have nothing to say except keep are a man with plenty of Heart-a-la-Heart...and such. My young nieces (3 and 4 years old) love that ogre-ish "Hello" dude that you know, that raspy, lower-hung, Quasi-Modo-ish lad with the "Hello..." Anyway, they want me to play it again and again. They love it! And so do I. That's just on THAT seem to echo on very deep levels. Cuz you're smart and such. But with you it ain't so much the brain as it is the heart. ZEFRANK HAS HEART!~

Dude - you're getting way too popular - I don't have time to read all the comments anymore!
You and Amanda make a *very* cute couple :)
Thanks for the mouth-wide-open_heavelaugh - twice!

Posted by: Marianne at April 29, 2006 03:01 AM

Is this available as a podcast? I can't be bothered with the whole 'clicking' thing. I just want it on my iPod, sans effort.

Posted by: piers at April 29, 2006 05:58 AM

Ze – Thank you for thinking so I don’t have to. I find that with less to think about I have more time to generate the income I need to fork over to our large big business/government consortium. Hey, if you could find someone to take it up the ass for me from the same group you’d really be doing me a favor.

Posted by: Tomas at April 29, 2006 11:56 AM

all these comments about a combined RB & TS have me thinking (which is generally a "bad" thing) about the potential for progeny: t-shirts, bad hair, poop, great rack, more poop, 5'oclock shadow at 9am, grumpy. Now I'm missing my college gf - Damn you guys!

Posted by: Gary at April 29, 2006 12:20 PM

I liked your riff about air quotes.

I did not like that you said "quote unquote genocide". That would actually mean an empty set of quotation marks followed by the unquoted word "genocide". [Which, ironically [sort of], actually needed to be put in quotes there. I think.]

I will forgive you. I think.

Posted by: RSL at April 29, 2006 12:33 PM

Awesome show, it was really funny. Exxon makes too much money. Damn the man, save the empire.

i keep trying to post a comment thru Typekey, but they tend to disappear. Does that mean my powermove is unacceptable?

Ok, so I haven't watched all of "the show"s, but I just want to know... Can I have a feed (like RSS 2.0) that I can put in my iTunes to watch you, Ze? Your show is great!

Posted by: RobertHatesKentucky at April 29, 2006 05:06 PM

your comment section now takes longer to read than theshow takes to watch! congrats! and ze DID blink, like 3.5 times... be more observant, young sports racers, geeeez... 2 happened in quick succession during the word "minorities."

[agreed: the wide-open-mouth + heavelaugh was veryvery good, as are the hello pop-ups and under-the-breath assholes.]

While I enjoyed the poopgasm, I have rarely watched someone who irritated me more than AC. How annoying is that key punching thing? If she was necessary to spawn The Show, then we shall always be quietly grateful, but otherwise it's time to move on. And not in the dot org kind of way.

Hilarious! Wow. Ze, check out our Bush podcast

Send me an email, love to chat about what you're doing.

Posted by: SHOUTBOY at April 29, 2006 06:59 PM

awesome show, keep up the good work.
Can you take some potshots at all the comments about you and Amanda 'hooking up'? They are annoying to read.

Excellent work.

Industrial strength hooliganism. A day without Ze is a day without knowledge. And who needs that.

Posted by: damnright at April 29, 2006 08:51 PM

Most excellent show. Your riff rocks!

Knowledge never rests! Rest is for the weak and the slow... uhm, and the "under-caffeinated". (Quotation marks are fun! So are parentheses."

I have a theory. Ze Frank is really Canadian comedian Alan Park masquerading as a guy with less hair. Somebody check on this for me.

Spewed crust particals or "five-o-clock shadow"?

low soft voice


i've been thinking about you

a lot

i've been wondering, what your day must be like putting together “the show”

your process

sitting there, reading the news, filming yourself while you read, looking at the little camera from time to time, making faces and clever comments, talking out loud like you were talking to a friend sitting next to you or your cat, but you're all alone, only god can see you,

if there is a god,

then you wonder if that last look worked or if it was funny enough, snickering at your jokes, you know the sound, the one that doesn't have a word for it, not a laugh or a snicker really, but it comes out in little colours

then you start planing the next look or remark, synapse flashing, high order thinking blazing at super sonic speeds

thats a lot of work


then you have to get down to business, like framing art, stringing it all together, incorporating craftsmanship, making it sophisticated, till it's





for us

for me

cause you know me

when thinking about you and the whole “creative” process

i wonder

are you suffering

from attention deficit hyperactivity or schizophrenia

if so

i find that sexy

is rocketboom normally funny, did today just suck. Its like the show except not as well edited, and more random, but not in the good Family Guy way, in like a bad "I am so lame but think I am funny" way."

I never wrote that.....I wrote a more intelligent post. What's the deal with this misquoting!?

Dude, you have to be the funniest people I may have ever seen. No lie, you rival Conan O'brian as my favorite comedian. Brilliant news and humor wrapped up in a crunchy burrito. The crunch wrap supreme. "It's good to go". Yeah if I were to endorse thats how I'd do it. Tie it in seamlessly."

I wrote that! "Brandi" didn't write that.

Posted by: Thomas Pease at April 30, 2006 09:39 AM



your post is the one above that one.

the signature line is below the post.

Posted by: ze frank at April 30, 2006 09:41 AM

did i blink or look away to quickly, or did you have an "asymmetrical" haircut in high school?

Posted by: Sarcomical at April 30, 2006 11:35 AM


now i got it

new Powermove posted to the files gallery!

Posted by: byslexic [TypeKey Profile Page] at April 30, 2006 12:53 PM

i enjoy you deeply, ze.
not a new viewer, but a first time commenter.
i feel born-again.

Posted by: delilah at April 30, 2006 02:34 PM

I know I'm, like, comment number nine zillion and twelve, but I'm really curious so I hope you see this, Ze...

Why do Americans say "quote unquote" - and then the word that they've verbally put into quotation marks? Surely it should be the word "quote" then the word, then the word "unquote". If the word "quote" and the word "unquote" are next to each other, then the word falls outside of the quotation marks and remains unquoted.

We New Zealand speakers of English often use the word "airquotes" to verbally signify that we are doing that thing in the air with our fingers to signify quotation marks.

So instead of "quote unquote quotation marks" - or, more correctly, "quote quotation marks unquote" - we simply say airquotes quotation marks.

I hope this is airquotes helpful.

Posted by: Dubber at April 30, 2006 04:18 PM

Agreed, Fritz. Rocketboom and Zefrank need to amp it up a little. I'm interested in what this continued interaction shall bring forth....
