11:54 am - New book, stand-up tour, book tour, and a music video =)
Hello. It's been a while!

This is coming a bit late, but Demetri has a book coming out titled *This Is a Book*, and the first 500 pre-orders receive a signed original drawing by him :) I have no clue whether or not the 500 have been taken yet, buuut... it's worth a shot!

With this, he is also going on a small stand-up tour:

St. Louis, MO 3/18/11 The Pageant
Atlanta, GA 3/19/11 The Tabernacle
Indianapolis, IN 4/21/11 The Egyptian Room
New Haven, CT 4/22/11 Shubert Theater
North Hampton, MA 4/23/11 Calvin Theater

AND... he's going on a tour to promote his book:

New York, NY 4/25/11 Barnes & Noble Union Sq.
Washington, DC 4/27/11 Sixth & I
Cambridge, MA 4/28/11 Harvard Co-Op
Austin, TX 4/29/11 Book People
Los Angeles, CA 5/01/11 LA Times Festival of Books

Soooo..... check him out! :D I'm excited!

I'll leave you with a music video I just found (late to the party, perhaps) that stars Demetri and his awesomeness!

Take care all <3

 Hello fellow Demetri fans! A while ago I had posted a drawing I did for Demetri, and I got a lot of positive comments on it, so I thought I'd let you guys know I made pins of the art that I'm selling =) they're $2 each and right now I've only made three, but they're up for sale in my online etsy shop! They look like this (just click the picture to go to the listing):

(I don't know if this sort of post isn't allowed or anything but if isn't, I apologize and feel free to delete it!)

Well, other than that, what did everyone think of the first new episode?

It looks like I JUST missed Demetri on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Does anyone know if it was a rerun, or where I might find the episode? Due to crappy internetz on my part, I won't be able to watch it on Hulu, if it does end up on there. Unless... I go to someone else's house an watch it on their computer. HA!

Also, don't forget to tune in to comedy Central at TEN O'CLOCK (or earlier if you have satellite TV on the West coast) tonight! I'm setting my alarm. *Shivering with anticipation* :D

Edit: I found the clip of him on JKL! It's on the Jimmy Kimmel page on the ABC website. :P

Also, I thought I'd share this with you guys, in case you hadn't read it already.

07:52 pm - Random question
Hola. I have a question for you guys.

I watch a ton of stand-up comedy. I love Demetri Martin so so much.

And I have this joke floating around in my head and I can't remember who said it for the life of me. It sounds like something Demetri Martin would say, but I'm not sure.

It goes something like "When you say something at a normal volume, it's okay but when you whisper it, it sounds creepy." and then the example he gave was "I love children." xD

I want to say that was him, but maybe it was Daniel Tosh or Patton Oswalt or somebody else.

Anyone know what I'm talking about? o_0;

10:13 pm - 'Will'

It seems like the Film industry is conducting a pretty interesting collaboration between the two very funny Zach Galifanakis and Paul Rudd.

The two are going to star in Paramount’s Demetri Martin-penned comedy, Will. The story takes place in a world where people’s lives are determined by writers in heaven. One day a guy (Paul Rudd) wakes up to find that his writer (Zach) has dropped the ball on his script, leaving the guy to live out his fantasies of riding go-carts, playing Ms. Pac Man, and other man-child things.

Martin sold his movie concept Will to DreamWorks; he is expected to play a key supporting role. He will play the lead in the film Moon People, a pitch that he sold to Columbia Pictures. He will also be appearing in the upcoming film Young Americans, in which he play a Goldman Sachs employee.

Didn't see this posted yet - but since it is Demetri's script, I think it's pretty big news :)

02:41 pm - Important Things tapings
Did anyone else go to any of the tapings for the second season of Important Things this weekend in San Francisco? I went to the Friday night 8:30 and Saturday night 5:30 tapings. Luckily, they recorded different stuff at each taping (although the warm up comedian did some of the same jokes). It was such a great experience, and after two days in a row watching Demetri film his show it was hard to go back to reality. I would happily be in his studio audience every day :o)

I was thinking of typing up a detailed description of what it was like if enough people are interested (I probably will for my own lj anyway), but I'm not sure how much spoiler-ish stuff people would like to know. For instance, there was a special guest who came out to perform a song with him both nights, and I don't wanna ruin who it was for anyone who doesn't want to know! I suppose I could just put the spoiler-ish stuff behind a cut or something. Thoughts?
