List of Things I’m Bringing with me for Three full days at the Del Close Marathon

A very important thing to consider for surviving the Del Close Marathon is having a good go bag I’m not saying I have a good one at all, but this is just how I’m preparing, it’s still a work in progress, but have you considered if your packing everything you need because I still am and I know I shall forget something.

  1. Myself (I’m really tired already, so give me a break, I know this isn’t funny)
  2. Laptop (To live blog this whole thing, or attempt to do so)
  3. iPhone (To live blog when my laptop is too awkward, noticeable, and rude to have out and it would be easier to do it stealthier)
  4. Canon 40d with 50mm 1.8 f-stop lens and other camera equipment (To photograph as much as possible)
  5. Flip Video Camera and batteries (Perhaps I can manage some on the street interviews or record some of the crazier morning shows)
  6. iPod, Headphones, and DS lite (For all the times I’ll be waiting on line at any of the theaters)
  7. Water Bottle
  8. Deodorant (I’ll be smelling very “earthy” after not going home for 2 nights straight)
  9. Every possible charger for every piece of tech I’m bringing and my power squid power strip (I’ve had to steal power from the UCB theater a couple of times I’ve gone to the DCM because eventually after the 1st day your equipment will lose there charge, and this year i’m going to be considerate and not try and hog an outlet)
  10. Tiny flashlight (for getting around the theater easily and for also just getting around outside in the dark at 3am)
  11. Regular Medication, Visine, and Advil (first time I tried to stay for all three days I got horrible headaches and had incredibly dry eyes even before Krompf’s considerate cooking, let’s try and avoid that this time, shall we?)

We Never Write, We Never Call

Heya folks, sorry for not posting lately, i’ve been busy with work but I’m going to get a big post up for the Del Close marathon and I’m gonna attempt to stay for the whole marathon and liveblog it as well, I may regret this…

It might not be that hard with the wordpress iPhone app that I’ve downloaded and used for this post, it’s very nice…


We Hunger for Bloggers!

Hey everyone, this is an open invitation to join the Blagofaire, while Chris and I are doing a fine job posting up articles, it take some time to post for us and we don’t always have that much time to post something during the day and there is so much great comedy news out there that we don’t know about, and thats where you guys come in.

Now this isn’t for many of you, but this is targeted at the few people who are interested in blogging, perhaps they already have a blog of their own already where they write whats on their mind grapes, but maybe they would like to write about comedy news, what it’s like being in a sketch/improv group, or what goes into being a standup comedian, shows they’ve just seen and would like to review and tell people about, etc.

If that applies to any of you then your invited to be a contributor to the the HAROLDcast blog, just send an email to alexerde AT gmail DOT com with the subject “I want to write for the HAROLDcast”
