I met Amy in the early 90’s and she is like a superhero mixed with both Coach and Tammie Taylor from FNL, as well as Tim Riggins and a little Landry.
Mike Schur is such a master of making me cry. When he delivers me personal news like, “You’ve got the job of Ron Swanson,” or when they handed me the script that had the Pyramid of Greatness in it — I read that scene and burst into tears because I can’t believe I’m the lucky bastard on the receiving end of this writing. I would love to see Mike Schur win a trophy more than anybody. I’m really hopeful on the show’s behalf. I think it would be nice to be recognized this year as the best comedy on TV. I feel like it’s been a little bit of a long time in coming, but I haven’t heard anybody with anything to say about the show besides it’s the best thing on TV.
From Funny or Die: “100% of male experts agree: nobody knows more about women’s issues like birth control than late-middle-aged men”
Starring Tim Meadows, Nick Offerman, Kurtwood Smith, Alex Fernie, Corey Stoll, Ray Wise, Brian Flaherty and Judd Nelson (yes, under the beard, you can just faintly make out Bender).
My Slackerwood editor Jette sent an email to me a little while ago titled “because you will understand”:
I introduced myself to Bob Byington last night, as I hadn’t really met him in person, and he immediately pulled over Nick Offerman to meet me. Who was really nice, but after meeting me was distracted by this woman next to me who was jumping up and down (almost on my foot, but in a cute way) and shouting his name, and turned out to be Aubrey Plaza.
So I was in the same two-foot zone and conversing with Offerman AND Plaza. It was like a little Parks and Rec gathering in front of me. :)
She ok’d me posting this to Tumblr, and even sent over this lovely photo of Nick Offerman introducing Somebody Up There Likes Me last night with his take on “Rhinestone Cowboy.”
(My response to her was obviously “OMG SO JEALOUS.” Damn my introversion and lack of energy yesterday!)

Nick Offerman talks BBQ and more (but no “Parks and Rec” talk, sadly).
See, proof! Nick Offerman is in Slacker 2011. [Slacker 2011: Bob Byington Re-Creates Papa Smurf | Slackerwood]
