Jonah Ray

comedicconversations:

Jonah Ray (Jonah Raydio, Nerdist, Meltdown) stopped by while he was in Athens, and we talk about Michael Stipe sightings, how he got into comedy, and what it was like to meet the person that made him want to be a comedian.

With the only vocalization about Valentine’s Day coming in the form of cynical deflections from the single-and-not-happy-about-it, and even worse, oblivious professions of love from disgusting couples, those who are somewhere in-between are found wanting. For me, today is a day to look at my life backward, forward, and as it is today in order to appreciate all of the love in my life - blatant, nuanced, subtle, and hopeful. So to celebrate I made this little playlist of “love” songs that have meant something to me at one point or another. I thought I’d share it as a gesture of love, and YOU KNOW its not that bull-honkey-projection-of-personal-desire-like-in-those-indie-movies-kind-of-love. Mm-m. This playlist is sprawling, imperfect, and very much the product of whimsy, like the love in those awesome life-affirming movies made in contrast to those dumb, other movies. Anyway, love y’all, I need to go take a shower to get this sincerity stank offa me
