Tittererers! Hello! I can’t stay long, it’s late and I have the sniffles. I have an actual buttload of things for you this week though so maybe we should just get cracking? Let’s do it. I honestly just drifted off in a sniffles related daze after that last sentence. *Michael Fassbender in Frank voice* Slack-jawed, glazed-eyes, wheezy, blocked-nose mountain ladies, I have a cold. Put your arms around me, stinky britches, fiddly digits, I have a cold. *End Michael Fassbender in Frank voice* Let’s do this.
1. Billy On The Street – Chris Pratt

I have some very limited experience of meeting people who are mildly famous and you know what? Famous people don’t always look like themselves in real life. Sure, in this video, Chris Pratt, looks exactly like the cuddly yet strong yet caring yet masculine comedy-action hero we all want to be but who knows how he appeared to people that day y’know? Give the people a break Billy Eichner.
2. Crinderella: A New York Lub Story

Rekha Shankar is back for her third Digest appearance in a very silly video. We like very silly videos here.
3. The Raunchy, Underground World of Trucker Tapes
Here is a very interesting look at a whole subculture of comedy that I’ve never heard of before. I guess the Irish equivalent would be Richie Kavanagh and those guys in bowties that you see in the ads for Irish Country and Western weekends in glamorous Roscommon Town in the back of the Sunday World.
4. Hannibal Buress
If you’re reading this then it’s probably the 14th of October 2015 which means that Hannibal Buress is playing Vicar Street TONIGHT. I wrote about him here when the gig was announced but just in case you didn’t follow my advice then you can still go here to sort yourself out.

Another video! This one’s a handy guide for those of us with unruly eyebrows that never do what we want with them no matter how much product we use.

I would watch this film. True fact: Henry David Thoreau’s cabin was in his mother’s backyard. The backyard was huge mind you. It had two washing lines but still…not as impressive right?
7. Lingo Festival -Words With Teeth
There’s been a lot of Lingo coverage on HeadStuff and that’s because it’s full of cool stuff that we want to share with you. Words With Teeth is a “light-hearted low-stakes competition…[where] comedy, poetry and fiction go head to head”. It’s hosted by Damon Blake and Sarah Maria Griffin who you should definitely be following on Twitter and it features James Michael Moran, Tara Flynn, Dave Rudden, Jeanne Sutton, Deirdre Maria Sullivan, and Ceri Bevan. I’m sure you’ll agree that they are all fine people and that at least two of them are HeadStuff contributors but we’d be covering it anyway because they’re gasssss. It’s on in The Workman’s Club, 14:30 on October 18th. More Details Here.
So there you have it. Seven things. Two of them things that you need to leave the house for. A brave new world in tittererer digesting. Byeeeeee.
