Kieth Olbermann is not gay...

but he is a little bit of a drama queen... I mean that in the best way. In this clip the rather excitable Olbermann has a few things to say about love and matters of the heart.

Katy Perry kissed a girl and the floor.

Awe, pretend lesbians never win. *Sad face*

Isn't it always the way? One minute you're trying to be sexy, but inevitably end up on all fours crawling away in shame.

Do You Smell Something Cooking?

The link between cellular telephone use and cancer is still unclear. Although I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to tether your phone directly to your head with a rubberband as fashioned by this New York City taxi driver.

Poor Socialite

Quest's Chris Meigher Not Paying His Staff Bills? from Jossip:

Somebody who is owed money by Meigher tells us he owes thousands of dollars to freelancer writers and fact checkers for Quest. It's been six months to a year since their invoices were due.

'It's sorta ironic and crazy that a magazine about Manhattan socialites and society can't afford to pay, or simply won't pay the people who work for them,' says our unpaid source.

Meigher has a reputation for blaming others for the trouble that consume him." Full Story...

Greg Walloch interviews Michael Arthur for Artillery Magazine

Performing Artist Michael Arthur Takes the Stage With His Live Rendering Act - interview by Greg Walloch
Photo by Bernie DeChant
The performances on stage at Joe's Pub are some of the most stirring and entertaining that the city has to offer, but if you look closely, there's also something magical happening out in the dark of the audience each night.

You might wonder who the handsome, unassuming guy is sitting next to you with a large note pad and fist full of pens as he quietly and skillfully draws the evening's performance by the glow of a book light. That's the official archival illustrator for Joe's Pub — New York artist Michael Arthur.

Floating In A Tin Can....

On Aer Lingus on my way to the Edinburgh Fringe. I'll be performing in And The Devil May Drag You Under...

The air hostesses on Aer Lingus reminded me once again that the Irish are pure sass!

There's a tech later tonight I think and I need some sleep so very much.

Birthday Wishes

Chance: New York, originally uploaded by Greg Walloch.

I went with Joey Hood to see Nellie McKay at Lincoln Center's Midsummer Night Swing for my birthday. Nellie is looking very fairy godmother princess. Let's hope she's granting me good wishes all year!

One Of My Favorites

Was sorting through some past photos and found this one from Castle of Imagination in Poland. We're dining, drinking and celebrating after a show. I've shown respected and renown performance artist Wladyslaw Kazmierczak how to put a spoon on his nose. Yaron David and Patrycja German admire the feat.

Am I number 53?!?

Chance: New York, originally uploaded by Greg Walloch.

Desiree Burch and myself grabbing some drinks at Park Luncheonette in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I took the Rolling For Jesus Taxi, ("Always a blessing, never a charge") to get there from the L train.

Later to Astoria for drinks and late night nachos with the Working Man's Clothes theater guys. Damn, they are all so cute. Along with Ms. Burch, I've never hung out with so many sexy and talented people in one night!

Watch for her show 52 Man Pick Up at The New York Fringe this year.

Spring Is In The Air... New Greg Walloch Shows!

Click here for full details.

Recently I performed with Mally Lewis and Lamb Chop, Joyce DeWitt, and Carla Rhodes in a a benefit for Fisher House at The Cutting Room in New York.

It was a surreal moment, classic TV sprung to life! The highlight of the evening was Joyce Dewitt. She beautifully sang a few songs accompanied (in a rare stage appearance) by Cutting Room owner Steve Walter on guitar.

Backstage, after her set she kissed me on the cheek and gleefully exclaimed, "We all did so good, didn't we!" I think we did Joyce Dewitt, I think we did.

Come to a show, I'd really love to see you!
