I am proud to have helped beat this meme to death:
Shit People at a Super Bowl Party Say
Sometimes the only way to beat an Internet meme to death is to join it. Sure, we had our favorites along the way. But none encapsulated the impending excitement, awkwardness, and eventual disintegration of a good old-fashioned Super Bowl party. We encourage you to use this video as an invitation to your very own affair this Sunday evening. Or at the very least, do the right thing by annoyingly sending it to everyone on the entire Internet. And stay tuned for outtakes!

7 more days of this!!!
This is happening! Please reblog if you are so inclined. I really wanted to do this whole project with no $ until I wrote some episodes that are really cool to finish the season. It would’ve been too sad to let them go. We need some help to get this finished. Any big helps. If you aren’t in a place to donate I understand but a reblog or RT is always great. People have been so awesome with this. I feel bad for beating it to death but I gotta meet this goal. Thanks so much. The whole breakdown is below.
Origin: In the very beginning of 2011 I started producing this web series I Hate Being Single. This was my first project as the sole writer and star. As an actor I always thought I would stumble into a role that would be perfect for me but it took a while to realize I should write that part myself. Putting the show together has been an amazingly fulfilling experience but I’ve reached a point where I need help from friendly people like yourself to finish the job. If you like what you see above, a donation will help make that season complete and get it online for everyone to see. You have the power!
Other things I’ve been a part of:
About IHBS: The show follows Rob, who is a lonely twenty something who was dumped and doesn’t want to join the single life in Brooklyn. He’s pretty clueless when it comes to dating and he doesn’t know where he belongs. Throughout the series Rob goes on weird dates, tries to reconnect with elementary school crushes, befriends his banker, gets stuck at a board game party, and eventually joins an underground cult of single guys.
People say the show reminds them of a mix between Flight of the Concords and Curb Your Enthusiasm. That’s cool with me! I’m really pleased with the tone of the show. The tone is very subtle and dry. Some of the dialogue is loosely scripted and improvised. I owe a lot of the look and feel to the Director, DP and composer for the early epsiodes: Dan Opsal, Giga Shane, and Jake Zavracky. Jake creates the songs based on things I’ve asked him for. He is a musical genius and his music defines that tone of the show.
Talent: Talent on the show have credits ranging from from Upright Citizen’s Brigade Performers, contributing writers to The Onion, SNL, writers for 30 Rock, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Stand Up Comedians, improvisors, and hilarious people from the NYC comedy community.
NYTVF: In the fall of 2011, I Hate Being Single was accepted as an official selection in the Independent Pilot Competition at The New York Television Festival. It was an honor to be accepted and meet tons of other talented people who also have a passion for creating new TV. The experience was amazing because I met many people face to face who had seen the show, and were really excited about it. At the end of the week, we were awarded the Bing Audience Choice Award. This let’s me know that you will really be happy with the show when it comes out and we can have a great series. Just need to finish it up!
What is done already: We have completed 5 episodes and they are ready for release as soon as the final 2 are complete. As soon as there are 7 complete episodes I plan on releasing them online.
Q: Why do we need money now if we’ve already made 5 episodes without it?
A: I have been really fortunate to get this far without any funding. I’ve asked friends who trusted we’d be making something fun to help out without any pay. I edit all the episodes and this costs nothing to anyone. The reason we need money now is that I wrote the final episodes of the season to be a little bigger and involving more production than a typical IHBS webisode. This is going to look much more like a cable TV show then a web series. I think it’s the finale episode, if people care enough to watch through to the end of it, they should get a high quality and production show. It was also a chance for me to showcase the potential of the show and how well it could be made with little money. 5000 is a lot to me and you, but not to a network. I am very excited to show you our finished product when this is done because it will look like 1 million dollars!
The money will go towards:
Director of Photography
Assistant to Camera
Transportation of Equipment
Please Note: This budget is specifically to fund the final 2 (five minute each) episodes of this season. We have done a ton of the work without any donations besides personal time and equipment but we’ve run out of favors! This is a good deal because the majority of the project is already done! We plan on filming these episodes by the end of December and we will start releasing the series in 2012! That’s a quick turnaround for you!
