If anyone has extra pecan pie, you should bring it to my house tomorrow night. And yeah, I know there’s no such thing as “extra” pecan pie. I want you to know there’s also no such thing as “unconditional love.”
Go hang out with your friends and family.

Sparky Sweets - Interview w/ comedian & friend Greg Edwards
Greg Edwards is a San Francisco comedian who made the move to LA a few years ago. He’s a super cool dude, and it’s always always always a pleasure when he comes to visit SF. I live in the Sylvan House, and he often stays with the eight of us (used to be 15!) who currently live there. As a guest, he is very polite, and goes out of his way to make his presence felt in a positive way. As a comedian onstage he treats the audience and the art with the same respect, without sacrificing the funny.
He recently came into this web show called “Thug Notes,” as the literary thug critic, Sparky Sweets, and it has taken off. He was good enough to find the time for a phone interview. The whole thing is published on Newtwork Awesome (an online entertainment syndication/curating site) and you can read it there, but here is the first paragraph of the article:
“Thug Notes is an all original series on Youtube that stars Sparky Sweets (Comedian Greg Edwards), a well read “thug” who spouts off summaries and literary analysis of classic literature using slang that is making its way into popular culture (let’s be honest, it’s all ready there). Think “Cliff Notes” meets “School of Rock” with an Urban Dictionary twist. It’s not clean and Goody Two-Shoes, but what some parents might consider colorful vocabulary, many tweens and teens don’t even bat an eye at as they hear it while walking down their school halls. The slang puts classic literature in a relatable context for today’s youth, and the literature puts slang in a relatable context for old people. Greg was nice enough to grant an interview about how the show came about, and how he landed the roll of Sparky.”
