Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

We love Jerry Seinfeld. Tremendously. We own every episode of “Seinfeld” on DVD, and were thrilled when we heard about his web series, “Comdians in Cars Getting Coffee.” We haven’t watched all that many web series’ ever, just pretty much this one and “The Fire Project,” but really enjoyed this one, now that we’ve finally been able to watch the elusive Brian Regan episode. For whatever reason, that was the one episode we couldn’t get to play on anything in our house, no matter the device. But we finally were able to watch it this past Saturday on our phone.

And with that, we give you the rundown on all 10 episodes, ranked in order from least funny to best. We watched nine of the 10 on our TV, thanks to DirecTV, which lets you watch YouTube on your TV, which is just unbelievably awesome, if you ask us. We would have loved to watch the Regan one on there, he’s easily one of our top three favorite comics, alongside Jerry and Jim Gaffigan.

Danielle BouloyHere is Part 2 of our TDQ Q&A with Danielle Bouloy:

TDQ: Tell us about Fitventures.

Bouloy: Wow, FitVentures are a brilliant little idea my business partner and lifetime friend, Miranda Zukowski came up with. She had been mulling over an idea to create a fitness adventure travel company for several years, when I decided I was going to help her along, by pushing her to make the first one actually happen. So, in the process of pushing her to realize her dream, I became involved as an integral part of the process. As we collaborated further to put the plan into action, I became Miranda’s partner in the FitVentures business.

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

Danielle Bouloy: Same way I hear about all incredibly vital news organizations: Facebook. Some time in the not-so-distant past, I noticed that my handy-dandy Facebook Home Page was slowly becoming cluttered with ubiquitous posts by my childhood friend, Brian DiMaio. That was my first inkling there was a new, hard-hitting news periodical clogging up the interwebs. Continue reading

Read Part 1

TDQ: Apart from the lack of a hundred million dollars or so from a huge studio, what’s been the biggest challenge you’ve faced with “The Fire Project” so far?

Smith: Honestly the biggest challenge with this, or any micro-budget project for that matter, is getting people to take you seriously. Unfortunately, without a multi-million dollar budget, a lot of folks think you’re just “jerking around with a camera.” Luckily, I have a great crew, a supportive family and friends who are willing to act for free. Oh yeah, and trying to manage a shoot schedule with a full time job and two kids under age five makes it tough, too. Continue reading
