I kept this website up because there are plenty of people who still visit. Since the last regular updates, I started doing stand up comedy again. It would be great to know that you came from this website over to my own personal site! It is www.kunalarora.com
Please visit Kunal Arora to see blog posts, stand up clips, and radio clips.
I hope you’ll subscribe!

I’ve been watching the stats since I reset all my passwords and its been gratifying to know that people are still visiting the website long after we stopped aggressively writing for OA. One of my best friends said it would be foolish to continue writing for this website because it won’t make any money. He’s probably right but I don’t know what it is like to have a lot of money so why should I start now. I have a lot on my mind and I’m going to take the next few days to think about what to do with this information. Stay tuned…

Whatever happened to getting toys in the mail?
Nothing is more annoying than having to deal with the fucking mail. I come home everyday and instead of a woman or a dog to greet me, I have bills. When I was a kid, I used to look forward to getting the mail because my parents ordered something that was going to make my day. Nowadays, mail depresses me. The sight of my mail man makes me resent him. I know it isn’t his fault but sometimes I want to chase him away with a broom. My mail situation is so terrible that I got excited over getting jury duty. I hope I get to convict a man, that would be sweet. They should sentence him to opening my mail for the rest of his life.

Mitt Romney took a pimp swing at Hillary Clinton on Sean Hannity:
And I think the greatest drawback beyond the direction she’d take us is that she’s never run anything. She’s never had the occasion of being in the private sector, running a business, or, for that matter, running a state or a city. She hasn’t run anything, and the government of the United States is not a place for a president to be an intern. You need to have experience actually leading and running things.
I tend to agree with Romney on this one. I’ve never bought into the mantra of political experience, particularly in an era when Americans are increasingly dissatisfied with government. Running as an experienced career politician is like a fox running for President of the Henhouse. This woman has been in the Senate for quite some time now, and her only accomplishments are an unparallelled pair of cankles and a large collection of pants suits. Her weather vane philosophy of governance is the last thing we need in these perilous times.
As for Romney, he enjoyed a long and successful career in the private sector where people are expected to produce tangible results and take responsibility for their actions with other people’s money, which is even more impressive when you realize that this man is a Mormon who believes in magical underwear and the Native American tribe of Israel. Yeah, I wish that were a punch line…

“Does this make them even more desperate?”
The fall television season is upon us and so are the MILFs of Wisteria Lane. Lock up your gardeners and teen age boys this, is The WTF Files!
iReporters – WTF?!?
CNN is cheapening the profession of journalism with its iReport initiative, which turns ‘one’ this week. And like most one year-olds their iReporters do nothing more babble, slobber and annoy the hell out of the older reporters, and I can’t even say they’re all that cute.
If a 24/7 news format is too much for CNN to handle they should create additional Wolf Blitzer clones. Otherwise, hire more professional reporters because the last thing I want to see on AC 360 is my grandmother covering the next California wildfire… she carries around an oxygen tank to breath.
Birth Order – WTF?!?
According to a Norwegian study the order in which you were born says a lot about who you are, much like how the being the eldest usually says you’re a dick. We’re playing with fire when we start playing favorites and that’s just what this study does.
The study states that being the eldest means being a natural leader and a problem solver, that you have a great hair and you get all the chicks. No where do they make mention of being a good at making apologies. So if you’re the eldest now might be the time to pick up the phone and tell your little brother you’re sorry for teaching him how to smoke. He believed you when you said it was cool.

OA - NBC aired its first episode of Phenomenon tonight. Although the tricks could easily be staged, they could also be well produced. The idea of magic being this impossible event made possible has already passed. Society has become way too skeptical to believe some jerk is performing truly magical acts. The host, your typical British man, did a good job to keep viewers hooked between commercials. The commentary from Uri Gellar seemed credible. However, the commentary from Criss Angel seemed forced and absurd. Anyone should be insulted to take performance tips from an ass who insists on making biting gestures to a camera. Here were tonight’s four “mentalists” and their acts:
Ehud Segev – He was able to “transfer” touch between two people without either of them actually touching. This trick would be too easy staged. Given that it was “live” we can only ‘believe’ this guy was talented. Trick wise, it seemed boring. The two participants were Carmen Electra and Ross (Gay guy from the Tonight Show with Jay Leno). I would’ve been a lot more impressed if he actually touched them with sledgehammers.
Jim Karol – This guy put his hand in a wolf trap while guessing what celebrity another woman wrote on a card. Another easily staged trick but his build up was slightly more entertaining. However, he did look like a “lumberjack” (Uri’s words) and was anything but phenomenal.
Eran Raven – Anyone named Raven should be slapped and his trick involved guessing what nail gun Carmen Electra loaded wasn’t actually carrying real nails. I guessed gun 2 and if I was on stage, it would have been a lot more entertaining to see me guess wrong than watch this fool blow chunks.
Gerry McCambridge – This moron guessed a phone number out of four phone books using random people and selection. I wasn’t impressed because I couldn’t get over the fact how much of an asshole this guy looked like.
The only slightly impressive event was watching Uri Gellar ‘project’ a symbol into people’s minds. I didn’t know the answer to that because the lights in the background were too distracting by making star like shapes the entire show. Concentrating would cause anyone to choose that. On top of that these people are considered “stars” (well somewhat). All together the show doesn’t have anything worth checking out for a second time or really the first.
he chose a star..
