Save kidneys, listen to a podcast, say goodbye to A-Log, and buy RG's book!

Team Wonderfoo at the Kidney Walk
The NYC Kidney Walk is tomorrow, November 10th, and I want to thank those of you who are supporting me and my team this year. It's not too late to donate. If you can, please visit http://donate.kidney.org/goto/johnszeluga for more information.

If you would like to join my team (Team Wonderfoo), online registration is now closed, but you can still sign up in person at tomorrow's walk. We'll be meeting at Foley Square in Manhattan at 9:30 AM, then at 10:30 AM we'll walk over the Brooklyn Bridge and back.

The newest episode of the Super Live Adventure Podcast is available for free on iTunes and Stitcher. Listen while a very drunk Chris Sorrentino and I have a nerdy conversation with Angela Williams-Dunford and Ryan Espin from the Minions of Gozer!

Anthony "A-Log" LoGatto, friend and former guest of Super Live Adventure, is moving away, and I'm sad to see him go. Friends and fans of A-Log can stop by Buffalo Wild Wings (1447 Richmond Avenue, Staten Island) to say goodbye tonight at 8:00 PM.

Available on Amazon.com
Another good friend and former SLA guest, comedian RG Daniels, has written his first book! In addition, RG will be celebrating the 5-year anniversary of Sunday Night Stand-Up, which is one of the best shows in NYC. It all happens tomorrow night (November 10th) at Three of Cups Lounge (85 1st Avenue, NYC) at 8:00 PM. The show is free, there's an open bar, and RG's new book, "Ten Shows," will be available for only $9.95.

I'm about to start editing the next episode of Super Live Adventure now, so be sure to subscribe to the show on iTunes so you automatically receive the newest episode as soon as it's released.

Jay Miller, Socko Jones and Jacquetta Szathmari

Last week we released 2 new episodes of the Super Live Adventure Podcast, available on both iTunes and Stitcher. In the episode titled "Rest In Peace, Man-E-Faces," Chris Sorrentino and I sat down with comedian Jay Miller for a very awkward, argumentative conversation. Jay is the host of Mid-Evenings, a Staten Island talk show that I was very involved with for a few years. I produced many videos for Jay, some of which can be seen below:


Pre-order the DVD!
Unfortunately, Jay and I had a falling out and I stopped working on Mid-Evenings. I can honestly say that despite our differences, Jay is one of the funniest people I have ever met, and I had a lot of fun while working on his show. Jay was recently added to the writing staff of TruTV's Impractical Jokers, and I couldn't be happier for him. Perhaps we'll work together again someday. Until then, I will continue to be a fan of his work, and so should you.

Socko Jones of Comic Book Jones
In the episode titled "A Vietnamese Wedding," we are joined by Socko Jones, owner of Comic Book Jones, for a very funny geek-out session that is more in line with what you can expect from episodes of the Super Live Adventure Podcast. Vin Forte (That Time of the Month Podcast) and Ghostbusters Super-Fan Ron Maxwell also stop by the show.

If you're looking for fun bonus content such as wallpaper, extended audio clips and more, you can purchase the Super Live Adventure App for Android, iOS and Windows Phone users. For iOS users, first download Podcast Box from Apple's App Store.

These episodes are brought to you by Audible. Our listeners can receive a free audiobook download by visiting http://www.audibletrial.com/superliveadventure. I recommend The Stench of Honolulu, written and read by Jack Handey, author of Deep Thoughts.

I'm still seeking donations and teammates for the upcoming NYC Kidney Walk. Click on the orange banner at the top of this page for more information.

Jacquetta Szathmari
We're going to be recording a new episode of Super Live Adventure at 8:00 PM on Friday, October 25th at Full Cup on Staten Island (388 Van Duzer Street). Bryan McGuckin, Chris Sorrentino and I will be sitting down to talk with comedian Jacquetta Szathmari, co-host of the Hey You Know It Podcast. This is a free show that will be followed by Full Cup's Halloween Covers Show, so come in costume!

That's all for now.

SLA Podcast Saturday Recording!

Gena Mimozo
Our Van Duzer Days show was cut short because of the rain last month, so Gena Mimozo is returning to continue our conversation on a special Saturday recording of the Super Live Adventure Podcast! Come be a part of our audience at 8:00 PM on August 17th at Full Cup, 388 Van Duzer Street, Staten Island. This is a free show hosted by myself (John Szeluga), Chris Sorrentino and Bryan McGuckin.

Previous episodes of Super Live Adventure can be found on iTunes and Stitcher.

Yippee Ki Yay, Mr. Falcon

I wanted to start a website called Yahoogle.com, but it's already taken. Whoever owns it isn't even using it for anything. My plan was to create a site where people could not only search for information, but feel silly while doing it. I guess I'll just have to lay that dream to rest.

By the way, be sure to check out the latest episode of the Super Live Adventure Podcast: Yippee Ki Yay, Mr. Falcon, now available on iTunes and Stitcher. The Mighty Vin Forte (That Time of the Month Podcast, VF_DOS) joins Chris Sorrentino and myself to discuss my wedding (performed by a Sea Captain), awful gifts, Wunderbars (buying them here supports the show), free napkins, the power of love, fighting a guy in a wheelchair, how to threaten a hipster, Chris' courtroom outburst, Katz's Deli, Star Wars vs. Star Trek, online dating, racism, and more! Socko Jones from Comic Book Jones also makes a surprise appearance. A new episode will also be released soon, featuring comedian J.F. Harris.

I'm raising money and looking for team members for the 2013 NYC Kidney Walk. Please consider either sponsoring me or joining my team this year. Visit http://donate.kidney.org/goto/johnszeluga for more information. Why do I support the National Kidney Foundation every year? A recent article in the NY Times put it best:
Kidney disease doesn’t get the attention, funding or concern associated with cancers of the breast or prostate. But it actually kills more Americans — 90,000 a year — than both malignancies combined.
You can find the rest of the article at nytimes.com. This is an opportunity for you to do something good. Again, you can help by visiting http://donate.kidney.org/goto/johnszeluga. In fact, if every one of my Facebook friends donated just one dollar, I'd exceed my fundraising goal for this year. That never happens, but I still love you all.

Never pay for napkins.

Vin will also be interviewing actress Alexa Criscitiello (American Star) and cicada expert Kristen Leyko of the Staten Island Museum. Believe it or not, the show is free! FREE! People would pay big bucks to listen to an off broadway actress, me, and a lady talking about bugs, but this show is FREE!

World Kidney Day

I first started fundraising for the National Kidney Foundation back in December of 2008. Thanks to the help of donors, volunteers, comedians and musicians, over $14,000 has been raised since then! This year I will be participating in the 2013 NYC Kidney Walk, and I hope you will consider joining or sponsoring my team, Team Wonderfoo! Because today is World Kidney Day, I kindly ask that you visit donate.kidney.org/goto/johnszeluga to join the team or make a donation. If you can't do either, please spread the word by sharing a link to this page.

Thank you for your time, and thank you to everyone who has supported this great cause in the past. I couldn't have done this without you.

Happy Valentine's Day

I took a poetry class in college, and I wrote a poem that went something like this:

That Something That You Do

Invisible, your magic touch
Your power strong and true
To set the room on fire
With that something that you do.

I breathe it in unknowingly
A tiny piece of you
My senses all awakening
To that something that you do.

As others start to notice it
They turn and stare at you
I wish you never hit me
With that something that you do.

My professor gave me an A, and my mother hung a copy on the refrigerator.

Not bad for a poem about someone farting.

Happy Valentine's Day, and goodnight.

Love,

John

The Honeymoon is Over

Join us for another Super Live Adventure Podcast recording at Full Cup (388 Van Duzer Street, Staten Island, NY) tomorrow night, Tuesday, January 29th at 10:00 PM. Here's the deal (including a lot of things in parentheses): I just got married, and it's time to get back to comedy (I've been away for a while). I'm sure Chris Sorrentino and I will be talking about the wedding (which involved a Sea Captain, Huey Lewis, and a cartwheeling stepfather), as well as my recent honeymoon in Aruba (I did a lot of thinking about death and may have actually come to terms with it), and we'll probably geek out a bit (J.J. Abrams is directing the next Star Wars), PLUS we'll be joined by the hilarious J.F. Harris (also a newly wed) and the mighty Vin Forte (who gave me a whole case of Canadian candy bars as a wedding gift). Come join us for a night of heavy drinking (yes, I know it's Tuesday) and ridiculous conversation.
