TODAY IS RAGNAROK
My first one hour comedy special JOHN HODGMAN: RAGNAROK goes live today on Netflix in the US, the UK, Canada, and throughout Scandinavia.
In the US at least, you can go directly HERE if you want to watch it, or tell your neighbors: http://bit.ly/RAGNAFLIX
If you want more information about RAGNAROK itself, including suggestions for HOW TO WATCH IT, you may go directly HERE, or tell your strangers: http://bit.ly/JHragnarok
Meanwhile, THE HIDEOUS SCREEN CAPS OF RAGNAROK are beginning to come in over the transom of my survival bunker. The above comes courtesy of Mr. @cabinboy100. WHOM I THANK.
If you want to participate in this contest for COLLECTIBLE SURVIVAL MAYONNAISE, details are HERE, or tell the mayonnaise collectors in your life: http://bit.ly/RAGNACONTEST
Please remember to hashtag your social medias with #RAGNAROK.
I have also grown fond of the hashtags that other humans have made up #PRESSPLAYANDWALKAWAY and #SIXAPOCALYPSESANDAMOVIE
Thank you as always for your help and support. I am glad the world did not end and you are still alive.
And finally, a few moments of sad reflection for the great and by all accounts kind genius James Gandolfini. Thank you.
THAT IS ALL
Exciting mayonnaise opportunity, courtesy of John Hodgman!
Q: How are John Hodgman and Holden Caulfield alike?
A: Both of them hate phonies.
It seems like a scene out of one of Wes Anderson’s fevered dreams: John Hodgman, former literary agent, turned author of fake facts, turned minor television celebrity (as both a correspondent on The Daily Show, and a PC in a string of Mac ads), turned Tom Selleck’s only facial hair equal, decrying inauthenticity. And perhaps it would be, if it weren’t for the honest zeal that he applies to his almanacs of the absurd. Over the course of three volumes (The Areas of My Expertise, More Information Than You Require, and last year’s That is All), Hodgman has become a noted maestro of the seemingly irrational, documenting the world around him through dubious lists, charts, and graphs, while keeping one foot (or, claw, or peg leg—depending on what story he happens to be telling) firmly planted in the realm of reality.

IF I HAVE EMBEDDED THIS CORRECTLY, then you are seeing me talking to John Barrowman on one of the last remaining episodes of ATTACK OF THE SHOW.
Captain Jack and now the true, final death of the Screen Savers. You can see I handle my emotions by falling off my chair. I am sad and happy and proud to have been there.
That is all.
The editors at FYJH try not to overlap with the official Tumblr postings of the JH in question, but this was just too good not to share. PRATFALL.
