Dick Cavett in the NY Times Book Review

Comments »


dc
Yesterday, there was a great interview with my friend Dick Cavett, an American treasure, in the New York Times Book Review. It’s a wonderful read that I am admittedly extra partial to because he says really nice things about me and my first book Tasteful Nudes in it. When you’re a pretty young thing growing up on the mean streets of suburban Cleveland, you just don’t think that sort of thing will ever happen. And then it does and a lot of chicks totally want to make out with you. Anyway, where were we? Oh yeah, read the interview here. And speaking of excellent books, get Dick Cavett’s latest, Brief Encounters, here. It’s fabulous. I really think that guy is onto something.

Happy Monday,
Dave Hill

Superfan Dan Podcast!!!

Comments »



Here’s something nice- I was featured on the most recent episode of the Superfan Dan podcast, which is a new podcast where this nice guy named Dan from Michigan talks about stuff he is a superfan of for an entire episode. On his latest episode, which you can listen to above, he says nice stuff about me the whole time. If you like to listen to someone talk about me for a seriously long time as much as I do, I think you’re really gonna like this one! And, by the way, thanks, Dan!

Happy Sunday,

“Funny People Reading Books” on IFC

Recently, I shot this cool thing for IFC for their “Funny People Reading Books” digital series. I got to dress up in a wet suit and everything. The video also features me reading a passage from my first book Tasteful Nudes, which you should totally take out from your local library or something. Anyway, watch the video above or go here and watch it. The choice is yours!

Thanksgiving in Review: My Dad and I Win Again

Comments »


thanks
If you live in America or even somewhere in Canada probably, you have mostly likely already heard the rumors about how much my dad and I completely fucking owned Thanksgiving at his retirement community yesterday. And I am here to tell you that those rumors are basically 1000% true. Here’s how it all went down:

I rolled into Cleveland on Tuesday and drove the fuck out to my dad’s place in my rental car (Ford Fiesta) as soon as I got into the airport. My dad lives in a retirement community way out in the woods basically. It’s a pretty sweet place and everyone has cable, which is awesome. The people that live there range in age from their sixties all the way up to holy-shit-you-are-so-old-you’ve-gotta-be-fucking-kidding-me or something.

Anyway, on Thanksgiving day, which was yesterday, the retirement community had Thanksgiving from 11:30am to 1:30pm, which seemed nuts since normally I don’t even have pants on by that time of day but whatever, sometimes you just gotta roll with shit. Plus, old people, like babies, wake up super early, so if you are a normal person just walking in on the situation, your whole day is gonna be pretty much fucked because everything starts so early you’d swear these motherfuckers were Amish or something. Anyway, the Thanksgiving breakfast/lunch/dinner was buffet style, which was nuts because as soon as my dad and I heard that we knew we’d be all over that shit like locusts or Vikings or some shit.

My dad and I were gonna go to the Thanksgiving buffet right at 11:30am but then at the last minute we decided to play it cool and show up at 12:30pm instead so the amateurs would have time to fill up their plates before getting the fuck out of our way before we crushed them. The buffet at the retirement community had pretty much all the usual Thanksgiving stuff you tend to think of when you think of Thanksgiving like turkey, stuffing, yams, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and even some fucking beans with gravy or some shit all over them for some reason. On tap of that stuff though, they also had ham (On Thanksgiving?! WTF?! It is now that I have seen everything!) and also I forgot to mention that the stuffing had oysters in it which seemed insane basically but I guess when you get old you don’t give a fuck about anything and will just throw some oysters in the stuffing just for the fuck of it because you know life is short and you gotta cherish every moment, even when you’re just eating some bullshit stuffing.

Anyway, as soon as my dad and I rolled into the retirement community dining room you could tell basically every motherfucker in the place was like “Holy shit- the Hill family is on the fucking scene and in effect and basically about to own each and every one of us on Thanksgiving day not unlike the pilgrims did to the Native Americans so many years ago in one of the best/worst examples of genocide in world history.” It was nuts. There were old people and then also some young fucks who were just visiting family or whatever. Regardless of age, however, you could tell pretty much every chick in the place, both young and old, wanted to get with me and my dad. Unfortunately for them, though, my dad and I were focused on stuffing our fucking faces Thanksgiving-style and didn’t really have time to make anyone the happiest woman alive or anything. Sorry.

Once we got in the dining room, my dad put his cane (which he uses pretty much because it makes him look like a pimp) on a chair at this one table so no motherfuckers got any big ideas about sitting at our table like they weren’t about to die if they did. Then we fucking rolled up on the buffet, grabbed plates, pushed like nine people out of the way because they were moving too slow, and began piling so much food on our plates you would have thought we just got out of prison or some shit. Stuffing, potatoes, yams, cranberry sauce, you name it- if it would hold still, we put that shit on our plates. In fact, between the two of us, probably like nine turkeys had to die or something. There was dessert too but my dad and I were both just like “Fuck it- we’ll get that shit later.”

Back at our table, my dad and I started eating the fuck out of our Thanksgiving food. A waiter came by to ask us if we needed anything else and we just looked at him like “You better back the fuck away from our plates right now unless you wanna pull back a stump or something!” He did.

After we cleared our plates, which happened so fast you would have thought you were watching some time lapse photography or something if you saw us do it, my dad and I went up to the buffet to fuck up that thing all over again like we were in the movie Groundhog Day or something. We ate all the shit I just mentioned all over again and then grabbed like fourteen desserts each while we were at it- pumpkin pie, apple pie, pecan pie, whatever the fuck kind of pie- if you could put whip cream on it, we dragged that shit back to our table and ate the fuck out of that shit like it was our job.

Once my dad and I finished cleaning our plates for the second fucking time and eating the fuck out of all those desserts, we started to get tired because of the fucking tryptophan or some other shit from science so we got up and just got the fuck out of there while basically everyone in the place stared at us like we were fucking gods (which we are basically). Then we went back to my dad’s place and slept for like nine hours or some shit right in front of the fucking TV (cable). It was nuts. Later, we ate salads because we like to eat fucking healthy, which is why we look so damn beautiful we should probably be models or some shit.

Still street,
Dave Hill
