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.
This week’s TDQ Q&A features comedian Martel Blue, in his first interview. Clearly, his career can only go up. Martel talks to us about starting out as a comedian, his hope for Ashton and Demi and the phone call he expects to get after this interview runs. Here is this week’s TDQ Q&A with Martel Blue:
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.
This week, we talk to Canadian rapper and DJ Ricky J. Ricky talks to us about the differences between his hometown of Montreal and Los Angeles, an upcoming project he’s working on, and the tabloid talk about him and Demi Moore. Here is this week’s TDQ Q&A With Ricky J:
The Daily Quarterly: How excited were you that The Daily Quarterly asked you for an interview?
Ricky J: I’m feeling GREAT… it means a lot when media takes what I’m doing and wants to talk about what matters in my career and yeeeaaah I’m overwhelmed!
TDQ: What made you want to be in show business?
J: I would say the great Michael Jackson. I know it sounds cliche but it’s true. My parents always had music around me, my mom always tried to take me to a play or show or what have you, and when I was with my dad he always had some old-school music playing and between all that and absorbing the King of Pop…I knew entertainment was my thing, just my character as a kid. I’d dance, imitate people, sing and want to act. Continue reading

Hollywood—It turns out Ashton Kutcher isn’t really joining the cast of the CBS hit comedy “Two and a Half Men.” And it looks like Charlie Sheen isn’t really spiraling out of control and destroying his life and career. He was just at the forefront of the most elaborate, longest-executed Punk’d episode ever, with Kutcher as the victim (and to a lesser degree, the American public).
“Nearly half of Hollywood was in on it,” said a source closely involved in the prank and formerly on the production crew of Punk’d, Kutcher’s MTV show where celebrities and friends of Kutcher’s pull practical jokes on each other. Kutcher was the producer of the show its entire run on MTV from 2003 to 2007. Continue reading
