Hey!  Look!  Apparently, I still have Google Plus.  So, let's use it for some self-promotion.  Here's an article I wrote.  Please read it!

Well, judging from the level of interaction I've had since yesterday here on Google+, I'm going to go with my first assumption: MySpace with more money. Possibly, also tumbleweeds.

Or maybe I'm doing it wrong. Am I doing it wrong? Thoughts?

So, I'm trying to figure out how to become the Dane Cook of Google Plus. I've already tweezed my eyebrows and have purchased a tank top. Now I just need to get several million non-discerning friends. Any ideas?

Always forget I have Google+. Anyway, Facebook got these in real time but I figured if you don't follow me over there you might be interested over here. Besides, I should support Google more - they're a plucky little startup...

So wait a second, are people using Google+ - I thought this was basically like Wave or whatever. Should I be updating here?

Okay, so here's some Google Plus specific content:

I just told my son a very butchered version of "The Three Bears" because for the life of me, I couldn't remember how the three bears goes. I mean, I know the specifics: the bears leave, Goldilocks comes in, lots of tasting, sitting, sleeping, then a prolonged gang-rape -- it's just that I couldn't remember the order of what Goldilocks did and whose stuff she was touching when.

I mean, like every kid, I heard that story approximately 5,439 times during the course of my youth. Is it normal to forget these details -- other parents, I'm asking you -- or is my continued decade-long addiction to over-the-counter sleep medication finally destroying my memory?

If the latter, I'm going to start upping my nightly dosage in the hopes that high school is finally swept away for good.

(On a separate note, I'm currently keeping Google Plus separate from my other social media, but I'm starting to see some hacks, inelegant as they are, to allow me to link it to all my other sites. Is that considered gauche at this point or are y'all doing it as well?)

Introduction
In 2007, Jay Black left teaching to pursue writing and stand-up full time.  

Since then, he has headlined at close to 300 colleges, scoring three nominations and one win as the nation's top college comedian.

He has appeared as a comic on Showtime, A&E, Fox, the CBC, and NBC.  Jay has also performed at some of the most prestigious clubs in the country, from the Comedy Stop at the Tropicana in Atlantic City to the world famous Los Angeles Improv. 

Jay has opened for several celebrity comedians, including Joel McHale, Carlos Menica, D.L. Hughley, Sinbad, Bobcat Goldthwait, and Christopher Titus.

In 2010, Jay was given the opportunity to work with the US Army on the "I Am Strong" tour, traveling overseas to entertain the troops.

He's met equal success as a writer, selling his first screenplay in 2008 and working heavily as one of Hollywood's most sought-after "punch-up" writers, making your favorite movies even funnier.

Jay's comedy is funny for two reasons: 1. he's a keen observer of the absurd and 2. he's desperate to never have to go back and teach again!
