Some things about me: I’m about 27-years-old and am from Wisconsin. I like scary stories and good art. I drink Irish breakfast and chai lattes. My favorite color is orange, and not in a passive, adult way. I play the guitar. I collect hats. I wish I had a pet ibex.

If you follow comedian Ricky Gervais on Twitter, whose show Derek airs in the UK and returns to the US on May 30th, you know that when he doesn’t have a project to plug, it’s all animals, bath selfies and jokes about God.

Jack Bauer vs James Bond

May 12, 2014

Read the full review on Anglonerd.

It’s Not Me, It’s You!: Impossible Perfectionist Seeks Very Very Very Tidy Woman is comedian Jon Richardson’s look inside the life of someone with OCD tendencies, specifically, Jon Richardson. The entire 300-page book takes place over just a couple of days, spending a chapter on waking up, a chapter on getting dressed, a chapter on eating breakfast, etc., in order to truly get an understanding of what it’s like to be Jon Richardson. Each day is meticulously scheduled out in a list, including “Wake up,” which immediately gets crossed off each morning. The items on the breakfast table must be patterned out so that there is a sense of balance. He will often have to return home partway through a journey to make sure that he did in fact lock the door. (He now has a memory device where he says something memorable each time he locks up, such as “Jon is locking the car door. Boobs.” Sometimes he is overheard by strangers.)
