Awkward Adventures in Internet Dating: Plenty of Mitch

According to a recent study, internet dating is the second-most common way for couples to meet (I think, blacked out nights at the local watering hole is number one, but I may need to cross reference that).  An amazing 22 PERCENT of the couples surveyed met through dating websites.  In contrast, Prior to 1978, only .02 percent of couples met online (which personally I find kinda high, considering the fact that the internet sort of, kind of, didn’t exist back then).   Point is, the dating landscape has changed and you might need to get over your fear of internet stalkers, awkward conversations and the potential of a chubbo, to find the one you’ve been waiting for.

After my $5,000 victory (THANK YOU, BY THE WAY) on a one minute short, I’ve decided to become more aggressive in getting involved in film/writing projects.  One of these projects is PLENTY OF MITCH, a webispode series that follows the  internet dating adventures of Mitch, a down on his luck illustrator, and his friends, Jamie and Marco (pictured)…

It hasn’t been released yet (it will be released in the coming weeks), but it is absolutely hilarious, has a great cast and high production value.  If you’ve been on a date with someone you met online and it was TERRIBLE you will definitely relate to the misadventures the guys will go through.  Even if you haven’t, you can live vicariously through them and laugh along the way.

Here’s a link to the facebook page for you to get updates on when it will be released, behind the scenes info and more!  Don’t forget to also like the HAHABUDA facebook page, while you are at it.  Thanks!

Slingr – Now the internet can buy you drinks….

Ever been to a bar and you’re pretty sure that your only chance at a free drink is that overweight guy with the cold sore and that weird hairy mole, and you realize that you’d rather shell out the cash for a peaceful night than risk him tell that story bout his hernias four times in a row as he spits  cold sore drool on your face?

Sorry… got carried away.  ANYWAY.. If you’ve ever wished for your friends to be able to share an experience of food and drinks with you even when they are halfway across the world, if you’ve ever wanted to send a special shot to a friend celebrating a birthday while you are stuck inside with the flu, if you’ve ever wanted to cash in all those internet stalkers you’ve been hoarding, well then… I’ve got an app for you… SLINGR.

Slingr – The self proclaimed social networking tool for drinkers, allows your facebook and twitter friends to remotely send you drinks when you are at bars and clubs hooked up with the service.

According to the service:

When you check in to a Slingr spot, a link is shared to your social feed (e.g. Facebook wall) which takes your friends to a menu system tied directly to your table. From there they can send you drinks, food, and other stuff which is delivered to you by the serving staff.

Currently three bars in the Los Angeles Area have it: Michael’s Bar and Grill in Burbank, the Hollywood Way and The Red Lion in Silver Lake.

Would you guys buy me drinks???   I need to have this blog profit me in some way…. JUST KIDDING. I love you all, even if you don’t buy me drinks.  But, I’ll try it out, see if actually works and report back soon.

Here’s the Facebook page and Website for those of you who would like to look into it more as it grows in popularity.

Happy Friday from HAHABUDA

I don’t know quite why, but I’ve had a very enjoyable day.  Maybe it was going to the gym at 9 in the morning, maybe it was the fact that the radio station had a memorable movie songs playlist or maybe it’s that small coffee (I refuse to say tall, grande or venti) that I just scarfed down. BUT I FEEL GREAT.  Cheers to your weekend and enjoy this image below.

What makes your Fridays great?

In the world of weird: Testicular Tumor Face

Okay. I know that Halloween is over, but I’m on this weird news and creepy things kick, that I can’t and won’t shake just yet.  So today I will provide a weird news story.

A man recently received an x-ray for his testicular cancer and found an interesting image in his x-ray: A face!  And a kinda worried and scared face at that.  Doctors wondered at first if it was a sign from a god, but signs point to merely a coincidence.

muahahahaha
