Anonymous asked: Abbi! How would one invite you to be a guest on someone else's podcast or webseries?
I would say to ask me! Preferably via formal snail mail…but if you feel more comfortable on the internet (UGGHHHHH), then you can write me again with your email and who/what you are/about!
Thanks for thinking of me!
**are you thinking of asking me to be a part of someone else’s podcast or webseries? I would say to run it by them first (everyone might not be a fan of my go-to character choices or my husky voice) Then I would say if they say yes— run it by me. IF THEY SAY NO— then you tell me and we can handle the matter together, because FUCK THEM, right!? I mean— we don’t need that shit. We have a lot of other shit goin on you and me and they can just go to hell for givin’ us the runaround.
"Quite simply, I was in love with New York. I do not mean “love” in any colloquial way, I mean that I was in love with the city, the way you love the first person who ever touches you and you never love anyone quite that way again. I remember walking across Sixty-second Street one twilight that first spring, or the second spring, they were all alike for a while. I was late to meet someone but I stopped at Lexington Avenue and bought a peach and stood on the corner eating it and knew that I had come out out of the West and reached the mirage. I could taste the peach and feel the soft air blowing from a subway grating on my legs and I could smell lilac and garbage and expensive perfume and I knew that it would cost something sooner or later – because I did not belong there, did not come from there – but when you are twenty-two or twenty-three, you figure that later you will have a high emotional balance, and be able to pay whatever it costs. I still believed in possibilities then, still had the sense, so peculiar to New York, that something extraordinary would happen any minute, any day, any month."
I just read your note that I think you wrote last night— I wish I could respond directly, but instead I’ll write you a note on here and hope you’ll see it. I don’t know the details of your last few days or why they have been so rough— but I do know that I have been there and know what that’s like. I think that the shittiest of days are maybe there to make the rest of the days a lot better in contrast. I know that things will turn around and change and that this too shall pass. A teacher once said that to me and it stuck around. The fact that you watched our show to get whatever was so painful off your mind, might be our ultimate goal. It’s not something we talk about a lot, but it’s something I wish for deep down— that our stories might alleviate a bit of life’s stress and pain and worry for others and ourselves through putting it out there. Ohh boy ANONYMOUS, you’re really pullin’ at my heartstrings here.
I hope today is better than yesterday and I can promise that we’re in the process of making a lot more for you— for when you need it… or for when you’re just stoned or somethin.
Hey all, this is a preview of the new [adult swim] show that I’m in. It comes out April 18th at midnight. It stars Henry Zebrowski (Murderfist), Matt Servitto (Sopranos) and me. It also has awesome people in it like Eddie Pepitone and Matt Besser. It’s written and directed by Dave Willis (Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies) and Chris “Casper” Kelly (Stroker and Hoop, Squidbillies). It’s going to ruin your brain.
We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter: ‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?” My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks ‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.
