This is his "excited" face.
Meet Matt The Intern.
Look at how excited Matt The Intern is to be one of the very first people holding the brand-new Wainy Days DVD
If you were our intern you would be as lucky as he is, too. In FACT, today IS your lucky day because we need social media and graphics interns.
Here's the deal:
- *We are located in New York City, so you must be, too. Or you must be willing at least to commute into New York City on a regular basis.
- *You can receive college credit! If this is of interest to you we can do this... however...
- *Being a student is not a prerequisite. Just know that.
Here are the skills we're looking for:
- *You should be familiar with our content. Some of it. All of it. Take your pick. But you should know something about us.
- *You should have strong writing skills. Please send us links to your Twitter and Tumblr and blog. But not your Pinterest. We don't care about that...YET.
- *You should have basic Photoshop and HTML skills. Have you ever created an image for a meme? Have you posted said image to your blog without the benefit of a blog editor? Do you sometimes wish you could just hold up an animated gif in real-life situations? Fantastic. You're who we want.
- *Basic Final Cut Pro or other video editing skills are wonderful and we could definitely figure out how to use your skills effectively and creatively, but they are not necessary.
Here's what you'd be doing:
- *Hanging out on Tumblr all day.
- *Creating gifs of our content.
- *Helping us think of hashtags.
- *Photoshopping Mary Lynn Rajskub's head onto Jeremy Lin's body just because we think saying "Mary Lynn-sanity" is funny.
- *Helping to optimize all of our social media outlets aesthetically and strategically.
- *Not all of it is fun. Sometimes there is data entry. Sometimes there is heavy lifting. Sometimes there is a coffee run that needs running.
BUT you would definitely get a Wainy Days DVD
. Well, probably.
Please send all inquiries to Maria [at] MyDamnChannel [dot] com.
Thanks! And may the odds be ever in your favor! (But not in a BAD Hunger Games sort of way!)
(PS: We have several videos starring Elizabeth Banks!)

After watching Mark Malkoff's "Free Cab Rides" video
, we were particularly struck by the part where Mark and his driver Sean decide to "Tony Danza" the cab.
An ode to Tony Danza's turn in TAXI
, sure, but why not an ode to Tony Danza in general
? We're ashamed to admit that we think about Who's The Boss?
on almost a daily basis. Like, who WAS the boss? That question has boggled us since we were seven. So, we thought, let's Tony Danza some sh*t.
(Jeff Bezos "Put A Tony Danza" on the Kindle Fire!)
(Wanna make How To Make It In America a better show?
"Put A Tony Danza On It!")
Here, maybe you wanna "Put A Tony Danza On It" yourself?
Go for it! You know how on Portlandia
they "Put A Bird On It?"
Well, maybe the rest of us should "Put A Tony Danza On It."
Maybe you want to help a new generation embrace a beloved 80's sitcom star due to an obscure but indefatigable movement to put his likeness in unexpected places!
Or, you know, maybe you're just bored and you don't suck at Photoshop.
Either of those reasons could lead to a perfectly acceptable decision to "Put A Tony Danza On It." Just be sure to let us know
if you do.
Your new favorite blog, Slacktory
, did you the generous favor of translating Facebook's confusing and cumbersome Terms of Service into "Bro Speak"
so that everyone can understand the rules, even if one happens to be wearing a baseball cap askew on one's head.
Here's an excerpt on Privacy
, a subject that seems to get many Facebook users up in arms:
We give lots of fucks about your privacy, so we wrote this. Read it, so
you know what the fuck we’re going to do with the shit you post, so
you’re not all “Facebook, I had no idea!” when your shit is in our press
releases. That way you know the deal when you’re deciding what to post.
Nice work, bro.
Now that we're finally able to understand Facebook's Terms of Service, there will be NO CHANCE that we'll ever be upset with them for using in some public and vaguely nefarious manner any of the information or data that we've given them voluntarily! Hooray!
Oh, Slacktory. How did you know that we all feel like cranky old men all the time? Your new meme, "Feels Old Man: The Advice Meme for Young Old People" is the best repurposing of a Clint Eastwood image since this guy's chest tattoo:

Remember when I said that Go Sukashi! was crazy awesome? Well guess what? They just got more awesome. This week's episode of Sukashi just really blew my mind. I don't have words really, just exclamations of mirth and...ecstasy. Pure ecstasy.
I don't wanna spoil the magic, so I suggest you go and watch the new episode right now. Parks are blown up and there's singing and dancing. Perfect combination. Enjoy!
Meet Lee Abrams:
He was the Chief Innovation Officer at the Tribune Co. until very recently.
There were a lot of stories going around about how his quick departure was punishment for a company-wide memo he sent containing links to some, erm, videos of questionable taste.
The good people in our RAMP (Radio and Music Pros) division thought that since linking to a video seems to have cost Abrams his job, it's only fitting that he use online video to tell his side of the story.
Watch the entire interview now at MyDamnChannel.com/RAMP.
Here's something to whet your appetite: Lee Abrams inspired one of those Hitler memes we were all so fond of for a while. You know the ones: we laughed and laughed when we watched them even though they starred HITLER.
Don't pretend like you don't know what we're talking about.
