Metal Grasshopper: The Dramatic Conclusion!
31st
Dec


As my grandfather once told me shortly before we put my first dog to sleep after it bit me in the face, all good things must come to an end. And with that, I give you episode 6 of Metal Grasshopper, the dramatic conclusion to the incredible web series in which I get schooled in the ways of metal by metal god Philip H. Anselmo. You can watch the whole thing above or over on Metal Injection, the greatest heavy metal website of all-time basically. And as for season two, hopefully we’ll get cracking on that in 2015!

Your man,
Dave Hill

The Goddamn Dave Hill Show Voted One of the “10 Best Comedy Podcasts of 2014” by Paste Magazine
31st

best
Here’s something nice- my new radio show/podcast on WFMU, The Goddamn Dave Hill Show, was voted one of the ten best comedy podcasts of 2014 by Paste magazine along with podcasts by such fine folks as Marc Maron, Adam Carolla, and John Hodgman, among others. And to think- at the beginning of 2014 I barely knew how to work any of the knobs and buttons in the radio station. Now, a year later, I still don’t know what most of those knobs and buttons are for, but now I’m on a list and that’s what matters! Anyway, in a world where ISIS, Ebola, and other negative things are constantly threatening to ruin my day, it’s little things like this that keep me from locking myself in the bathroom as much. I’ll take it. You can see the whole list here. And check out my radio show here or subscribe on iTunes. Okay, great, thanks!

Dick Cavett in the NY Times Book Review
22nd
Dec

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

19th
Dec


Episode 5 of my incredible new web series with Philip H. Anselmo is finally here. This time around Phil and I get some much needed group psychotherapy treatment from Dr. Joe Randazzo. There is hugging and also Joe calls me a pussy. In short, this one pretty much has everything. You can watch it above or on Metal Injection right now. I hope you enjoy it so much.

Happy Friday,
Dave Hill

Superfan Dan Podcast!!!
14th
Dec


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,
Dave Hill

“Funny People Reading Books” on IFC
8th

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!
