Katrina Norman

While Katrina Norman may be a force of nature she has caused way less property damage than hurricane Katrina and is much better looking than Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf.

“I’ve Always Been Good In Math So I Thought I Could Be A Comedian:” A TDQ Q&A With Comedian Martel Blue, Part 2

TDQ: Tell us about Getcha Weight Up

Blue: It’s a little group that my friends made up. Who knows, it might turn into something big. “Getcha Weight Up” is a term that means do better or get better.

TDQ: You graduated from the same high school as Megan Fox. Surely that fact has opened some doors for you in the entertainment industry, right?

Blue: Not yet but I’m sure it will in the future! PSL is a small area and I just might have to move down to Miami to be around all the action.

TDQ: What’s the comedy scene like right now where you live, in South Florida?

Blue: Comedy is pretty good! I perform now at Shindig Pub and different spots in S. FL during the week. I try to perform at least four times a week. It’s tough but it will pay off. I also have a show April 19th in Kissimmee for Orlando, Jacksonville and Tampa colleges.

The Daily Quarterly: How did you hear about thedailyquarterly.com? 

Martel Blue: Well I got a message on Facebook and a mention from twitter. I checked the page out. Pretty nice stuff.

TDQ: How excited are you that The Daily Quarterly asked you for an interview?

Blue: I’m really excited! I never had an interview before so if I ever get famous you might want to save this. ;).

TDQ: Would you describe the hilarity that The Daily Quarterly brings every day as “epic” or “awe-inspiring?”

Blue: My favorite article so far is the one about “hand squeezed orange juice.” I don’t know why, but sarcastic humor has always been funny to me.

Garry Marshall To Direct “Groundhog Day” Remake

Ground Hog Day

Ground Hog Day. This looks familiar.

Los Angeles—Critics are salivating over an announcement earlier today by Warner Brothers that they have given the green light for another holiday-themed star-studded romantic comedy from holiday filmmaker Garry Marshall: a remake of the Bill Murray classic “Groundhog Day!”

Despite not one single solitary positive review for any of Marshall’s recent holiday romantic comedies, an anonymous source at Warner Brothers admitted the films, “made just too damn much money, we had to let Garry remake this!”

“We’re really thrilled to get going on ‘Groundhog Day!’ because it’s a romantic comedy that has an environmental message, too,” the source said. “That combination is rare these days, with the notable exception of ‘The King’s Speech.’ But even that film, I think, you really had to look hard to find the message. But we’re excited!”

Hank Williams, Jr. Under Attack For Comparing The Two Darrens On “Bewitched” To Charlie Sheen And Ashton Kutcher

The Darrens

Hank WIlliams, Jr. is all too familiar with the concept of celebrity replacement. He replaced an earlier version of Hank Williams in the early 50's and will soon be replaced himself.

Nashville, TN—As if Hank Williams, Jr. didn’t have enough to worry about as of late, now he’s drawing the wrath of both “Bewitched” fans and “Two and a Half Men” fans after making an insensitive comparison between the two actors who played Darren on “Bewitched” and Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher.

Speaking on morning drive time on Nashville’s 103.3 WKDF last week, Williams went on a rambling diatribe culminating in him saying, “I mean, it’s really, to me, no different than those two bozos who played Darren on ‘Bewitched’ when you’re talking about Demi Moore’s husband taking over for Martin Sheen’s kid on that TV show.”
