marc maronI have preached the brilliance of Netflix for a very long time now whether it be original movies, Original TV Series, documentaries, or even their original comedy specials. Earlier in the summer, Netflix had released a new series entitled G.L.O.W. that is loosely based on the all women’s wrestling show of the 80’s. One of the stars of that show is stand up comedian Marc Maron who is also the host of an amazing podcast called the WTF With Marc Maron. I instantly became a huge fan of his just from watching the show and when I heard that he had a comedy special on Netflix, I had to check it out. So for today’s Tuesday Stand Up, we are checking out his special Marc Maron: Too Real which was recorded at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, CA. In the special, Marc tackles all sorts of topics like Donald Trump, hate groups, making decisions based on how long you have to live, being spiritual/meditating, fun, his father, media, The Rolling Stones, his mother, doctors, The Dave Matthews Band, stupid hats, cats, and so much more.

marc maron 2It has been quite some time since I had seen a comedy special and there have been times when I watch them, but I don’t review them. I knew I wanted to review this one because as I said above, I am a huge fan of his and his work. You don’t have to be smart to watch this comedy special, but it’s a smart comedy special. There is a lot of laughter in the wisdom of the brilliant Marc Maron and only intelligent people will get it for sure. One of my favorite topics that he gets into is when he starts reading his post it notes thoughts that he writes while driving. He gets into this whole conversation about Dave Matthews and I felt instantly like Marc understood my frustration behind that music. You’ll have to watch the special to know what I am referring to, but it was genius. The shtick he does on The Rolling Stones is great as you can see from the pic I provided to you guys in this paragraph. I definitely think you guys should give this special a shot and just check it out. It’s always good to have something different and with all the specials I have watched, he gives me something a little different. I am going to give the special an A for a final grade.

I predicted to a friend of mine that as soon as Donald Trump was elected President of the United States that the political driven Music Videos and albums were going to hit like a ten ton hammer. I was absolutely correct about that because it’s easy to vilify someone who is generally hated by everyone in the world, but Donald J. Trump isn’t the only subject of LA Industrial rock act 3Teeth’s new music video for their track Away From Me. Hilary Clinton, Vladimir Putin, the Pope, and even Black Friday shoppers are the subject of their eerie sounding music video. Alexis Mincolla tells us, “I believe we live in very regressive times despite our huge advances in technology and communication. We’re still territorially pissing like cavemen, and the tragedy of the commons has become an accepted way of life. The song is really about how strong willed minds can still stay autonomous and empowered even in the face of all this. I wanted the video to represent this from a human story rather than a political one as it’s becoming more and more apparent that geopolitics outweigh the human experience in terms of what is navigating our world.” The song is off of the band’s upcoming record shutdown.exe which is due in stores and online May 19TH via OMF Records.
