Finn. I'm a graduate student, getting their shit together. I'm an aspiring writer and thinker. I have re-appropriated the terms queer and crazy and identify as such.  Call me they, for I am agender.

Basically, the blog reflects my current obsessions. I love Amy Poehler, Rachel Maddow, Parks and Recreation and SNL (one of those things sort of doesn't belong). I also post frequently about mental health issues.

 

No one can ever tell if I’m kidding or being serious because I say ridiculous stuff real deadpan.

Often I don’t know if I am kidding or being serious. In reality, I am being both serious and not. In my mind there is no boundary between the joke and the earnest statement.

Ms. [Tina] Fey, who has known and worked with Ms. Dratch since the late 1990s at Second City (where Ms. Dratch was her mentor and her regular ride to work), said in a phone interview that the transition out of “Saturday Night Live” can be difficult for any performer, particularly someone like Ms. Dratch, who she said has “a lot more going on, upstairs, than a lot of regular actors.”

“It’s a curse of her education and intelligence that she would rather do things that she truly believes are good,” Ms. Fey said.

Ms. Dratch recently finished filming small roles on Ms. Poehler’s NBC sitcom, “Parks and Recreation,” and in “The Nest,” a film comedy starring Ms. Poehler and Ms. Fey as sisters who throw a blowout party in their childhood home. (Ms. Dratch said she played “a drunk party guest who gets all melancholy.”)

I have reading to do, but I’m rather like take a nap or something where I don’t have to think. The problem with having fun is that you then want to have more fun.

“I thought I was going to be an art teacher. I was way too scared to say I wanted to be an actor or a comedian. Then I took a performance-art class in college. You could do anything: People peed in jars and called it art. The class was silly, but I really liked performing. I had this theory that if you looked in the mirror and asked yourself a question, you had to tell yourself the truth. So, I asked, ‘What do you want to do?’ I stared in the mirror and said to myself, ‘I want to move to L.A. and be an actor.’ And that was that.”

My performance wouldn’t have been the same if Kristen wasn’t in [The Skeleton Twins]. I have two younger sisters, and people would ask, ‘oh, you put that into the movie—your relationship with your sisters?’ No, this is my relationship with Kristen. That’s the movie. - Bill Hader

Any time you talk to anyone about something that they love, they’re, like, their most beautiful. It’s a cool gift to get to talk to people about what they love.
