2nd Annual Streamys: Twice the Size, Half the Heart


Last year the first annual Streamy Awards was the little show that could. This year it was the big show that didn’t.

The first year the show was at the Wadsworth Theater in Westwood. The red carpet was a whopping ten feet long and most of the outlets were unknown bloggers and obscure people with Internet shows. There was no press room. The media watched the show from the mostly empty mezzanine. The show was quick and quirky, just like, well, Internet TV. It was glitch-free and well organized.

The Pineapple Express Panel – Questions

comiccon01.gif We were at the Pineapple Express cast panel moderated by Judd Apatow.

During the fan question part, comedians Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel got up and asked a ‘question’. Mainly it was yet another opportunity to talk about their sweating butts. Which they both did. Eagerly. Repeating each other’s joke. They could have been an Apatow plant. Was it Seth Rogen‘s dialog?

And fucking George Carlin is dead.
