First of all what is a blog, its the year 12 and I have no idea what I am doing I came across this computer and a comedian named Mark DeBonis left some words on paper, here is what it said:
How have you been? I have been alright, just got passed the holidays and it was good for family and all but bad for comedy- There was no shows for a long time, and the ones I did were nothing to write home about. I understand the irony of this cause I am writing. The Twitter Gong show #3, was a mini success again, but more for the “behind the scenes” stuff a lot of kinks were taken care off, and January will be packed with shows, it started with a week long trip to New York City which was awesome and followed with opening for Tom Green and headlining all at the same time… I have left a list of dates for comedy shows I will be doing and will try to write to you more oftten Mark from the past,
I love you,
Mark “from the future” DeBonis

Hey everyone whats going on, I have realized that i suck at blogging and probably will never be good at it, but that does not bother me i will have to find a new way to keep in touch with who ever comes across this site mostly by accident.

hey people here is the link to my dvd page on face book and ticket info is there
Hey so this year i won the Yuk Yuks Great Canadian Laugh Off. It was held at yuk Yuks Downtown Toronto or also known as the “SuperClub”. The whole experience was something i have never been apart of before. I was really happy just too make it too the finals, cause the comics that were there are all amazing. The thing i hate the most about the whole process is that we have to stay in the venue all day until show time, its like starring the beast in the eyes, but not in a way where you can show confidence by facing the music and over coming but in a way where the best is watching you from home on a tv screen, but really its not even there its out doing whatever a beast would do all day until the times comes that they have to go to a comedy show that night. What i am trying too say is the beast is the crowd, not the venue. Either than all the waiting and the new saying I heard 1000 times “Hurry up and wait” i have no complaints the whole show from start too finish as awesome, and my set was nothing i would be ashamed off. When ever i write i joke i have points where i would like too get laughs and most of the time those points are not hit, but sunday i am confident too say that every point i wanted to hit got hit.
As you may or may not be able too see i really dont look too happy in that pic, and too be honest with you i dont know what i am in that pic. All i know is, I was using all my brain power not too pass out, cause it almost happened. After the show there were lights, and cameras everywhere and people talking and waiting and just having a good time. I was happy too meet all the judges which hopefully one day will remember me and keep the momentum going in my career. Anyways i am still trying too figure out this whole blog system and how to get a good blog going so for the 3 people that read this thanks and for all the others i will see you in real life.
Also I would like too add that the poster is done for the DVD and we are now in motion with promo and setting everything up all we can do now is see you June 4th at The Hardluck Bar in Toronto 812 Dundas street
Pod cast will be recorded Monday.april.11th

So after about 4 years I had to go back to the gym cause I told myself if i ever weighted more than 230, I would have to get back in shape. So 2 years of being 240 and a girlfriend in the picture, I
finally went back. I am not gonna lie I really dont know if I am a fan of the gym anymore, the people in there are people I really cant stand or just dont understand. My size adds to the expectation
that people have for me when I walk in, its a constant competition in there, who can lift the most weights, the fastest and loudest. I have realized that I have no interest in becoming a body builder
a long time ago so I have no interest in having biceps, so curling 60+ pounds is really doing nothing but giving me a head ache. And at this gym I am at they have a sign up board for the cardio
equipment, which to me makes no sense, cause if i walk in and there is no one on the machine I am pretty much gonna just use it, I dont need some person who decides to grow a pair of balls to tell
me too get off “their” machine cause they put there name in marker on a white board an hour ago, and I am ruining there routine by being there at that point of time. And than you have the people
who just have way too much time on their hands, or just enjoying showing off that that are well off and have nothing else to do, cause I was at the gym and me and this guy walk in at the same
time and I go straight to the machine and he does straight to the mats and starts stretching (which i am aware its something that should be done and i have maybe never done it before) I continue
my exercise and do everything i planned on doing, I like to finish with a little cardio so i go back in to use the machines and this guy is still stretching. I could not believe it, I mean who has an
hour and a half to just stretch, you know. Like I am a person with little to nothing to do on a daily basis but that is a joke, unless this guy’s sole purpose of the gym this day was just too stretch,
than at that point he is just showing off his stretching abilities cause he could of just stayed at home, but in that scenario the people at the gym could not go home wishing there were as flexible as
this hipster pretzel. It was at this point I wish I was the type of person who was able to just motivate himself in any area, cause I realized how much I hated going to the gym and wished I was able
to work out at home, or just kick the guy in the back and getting credit for it not a record. So now I realize the importance of an ipod in the gym and the ability to have tunnel vision, cause in the end
the guy who see me staring at him in the gym does not think that its a stare of me wanting to kick him, those days are over. Now it seems that its a stare of me wanting to ask his name.
Alright i am gonna try this again, and hopefully keep it up to date. Its gonna be a much SHORTER “blog” about things that at one point in my life was just me stating the obvious, but now is me trying material on people around me. Hope you enjoy,
