feature: anthony jeselnik.

We’re fairly certain you’ve heard of funny man Anthony Jeselnik before. A Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native and Tulane University grad, Anthony is a stand-up comedian most famous for the Comedy Central Roasts of Donald Trump and Charlie Sheen as well as his show The Jeselnik Offensive, which he starred in and created, airing for two seasons in 2013. Anthony has also performed on Conan, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live and was the first ever stand-up comic to appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Anthony wrote for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and received an Emmy Nomination for his work on A Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert for Autism Education.

The Glitter Life Anthony Jeselnik

We had the pleasure of interviewing Jeselnik and it’s pretty hilarious (how could it not be?). Check it:

TGL: What was something interesting about Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that the typical viewer would never know or see?

AJ: The two way mirror in Jimmy’s private bathroom.

TGL: Absolutely love seeing you on the Comedy Central Roasts. Has anyone taken offense to the jokes?

AJ: Donald Trump got upset that I said he embarrassed himself in the casino business.  Which was hilarious, because I also said no one would be said when he got cancer.  And he was fine with that.

TGL: You went to Tulane. What’s your best story from ‘The Boot’?

AJ: My fraternity brothers and I once performed at an all-male revue for a sorority charity event, held annually at The Boot.  Every fraternity at Tulane would do a synchronized dance routine where we’d eventually strip down to our boxer shorts.  We found out right before the even that the only way we’d be disqualified is by getting naked.  As team captain, I decided that we would all get completely naked at the very end.  Our song starts playing and, five seconds into the song people in the crowd start going ballistic.  I look over and, before I could even take my shoes off, all of my friends are completely naked, fighting with security.  That was a fun night.

TGL: Do you feel like late night shows are moving away from stand up to sketch comedy? Is it going to keep getting more fractured?

AJ: Yes, because sketch comedy is more inclusive.  You can throw a celebrity guest into a sketch and it’s fun to watch.  Stand-up is just one person by themselves performing during the last five minutes of the show when most viewers have gone to sleep.  I think it’ll become even more fractured as stand-up further expands out of the late night show and into other channels like Comedy Central or Netflix.

TGL: What have you caught hell for lately on Twitter or just in general?

AJ: Ha.  I catch hell for just about anything I do or don’t do.  I made a joke about Joan Rivers passing and caught some hell.  I did not make a joke about Robin Williams and caught hell for that, too.  I don’t mind.  I’m a good catcher.

TGL: Will the Steelers make it to Super Bowl XLIX?

AJ: Anything is possible.  Except that.

TGL: What’s in the trunk of your car right now?

AJ: A slightly larger car.

TGL: What’s your plan, other than performing, while in Atlanta?

AJ: Atlanta is one of the greatest cities in the country.  And I can’t wait to see what movies they have in my hotel room.

TGL: We’re ready to see more of you. What’s in the works other than touring?

AJ: I’m recording a new comedy special at the end of the tour.  Other than that, I’m currently pitching a new reality series where I fight the contestants on VH-1s Dating Naked.

TGL: What’s the last thing that made you laugh?

AJ: My answers to this questionnaire.

If you love laughing, be sure to scoop tickets to his shows at The Atlanta Improv September 25-27. He’s not holding anything back…

We’re in it to win it this week. There’s TONS to do before we head to Las Vegas on Monday for MAGIC, including a little renovation at Dish (using that Annie Sloan Chalk Paint), networking (over champs at Lure, naturally) with the fabulous Kelly of Austen Hill and finalizing our trend list for fall. Stay tuned for some great posts this week, including the summer version of our short-trip packing strategy and a play-by-play of J’s hair transformation.

glitter girl: britton rowe.

Meet our latest glitter girl, Britton Rowe. J’s beautiful cousin (who’s getting married this July EEE!) and L’s former intern at the Georgia State Capitol. Could the world be any smaller?

britton rowe: software developtrix, bracelet queen and reality tv junkie.

About Me: I’m a fashion-focused girl working my way through the Star Wars-infested waters of the software development world.

1. What item or accessory do you wear the most? My David Yurman bracelets. No matter the outfit, they work perfectly and I can layer them with other fun accessories.

2. What are your three favorite stores (for ANYTHING, online or bricks and mortar)? 1. Kate Spade for statement investment pieces 2. C.Wonder for on trend basics 3. Etsy for interesting, personalized pieces that no one else has.

3. Fill in the blank. You would die if ____ followed you on Twitter. Kim Kardashian, because let’s be real she doesn’t follow anyone. People just follow her.

4. Your last meal. What is it? This is tough because I really like food, but if I had to choose it would be Rotier’s cheeseburger and french fries. It’s this hole in the wall place in Nashville near where I used to live but it’s rumored to be the cheeseburger Jimmy Buffet wrote ‘Cheeseburger in Paradise’ about…yeah, it’s that good.

5. What’s your guilty pleasure?  Reality TV. My fiance can’t stand it, but I just love the drama. It makes me feel like my life is much,much more sane!

L and I can definitely relate to Britton’s favorite accessory. We wear at least one Yurman bracelet everyday. #armparty

About our Glitter Girls: Once a week-ish, we highlight one of our favorite friends/readers/fellow Glitter Girls with a pic and a brief questionnaire. We’ll feature girls who are living in interesting places (from Atlanta to Alaska) and doing interesting things (from stylish stay-at-home moms to corporate ladder-climbers). We hope you enjoy getting to know The Glitter Life community!

weekend wrap-up + glitter girl: melanie herrington.

We’re a little late on our weekend wrap-up…we blame a manic, manic Monday. Here’s what we were up to:

J: Had a R&D session with my boss/coworkers on Friday at Chuy’s. Saturday, Jay and I headed to our home away from home, Lake Oconee, for a relaxing evening. Sunday we got in a little golf (even though it was frigid) and enjoyed a cocktail at Fado.

Weekend Collage
friday, saturday, sunday

L: Did a little cooking and experimented with up-dos (both will be on the blog this week!), had a mini-photo shoot, enjoyed a date night with Joe, and finished the weekend with a good friend and glass of wine at home.

And now, for this week’s Glitter Girl, Melanie Herrington.

About Melanie: Mel is an artist extraordinaire and stay-at-home mom to three adorable girls. She’s got city-girl tastes but lives in the small town of Dublin, Georgia. We love her style and couldn’t wait to share her with you!

1. What item or accessory do you wear the most?

Besides wearing a side braid almost each and every day, my most-worn staple would be my drop-hook diamond earrings.  My grandmother gave these to me before she passed and they have proved to be a classic pair!  Since they have no post, they are a comfy to sleep in, too.
2. What are your three favorite stores (for ANYTHING, on line or bricks and mortar)?
Etsy is my number one favorite store-if you can call it that.  I love that the stores on Etsy are filled with unique finds made by unique artisans.  This site brings a hand thrown bowl made by a potter in Oregon directly to my doorstep. I like that!  Check out these super finds:
Blood Orange Lip Balm. 100% Natural Lip Balm. Vegan. Shea Butter.
Fun Abstract Aztec Tribal Inspired Pattern Art Block Print 5 x 7 Home Decor / Gold / Hand Pulled Linocut / Gift
  little love notes teeny tiny note cards
Pottery Bowl - Seafoam Green Dot Bowl with Handle - Noodle Bowl
West Elm Market – Lately I just cant get enough. The utilitarian feel and the simplicity of the images in general keep me coming back for more. The clean look of the products and site is attractive for shopping and selecting the perfect piece for your home.  The spices, the sauces, the syrups, the appliances, the furniture, the cute little things–it is all so good.  Some of my faves are:
Krups Espresso Machine
Cake Kitchen Paper - Table Wrap
Spoonable Caramels
Labeled Kitchen Mixing Bowl Set
And last but not least…Hobby Lobby! I love a good craft store shopping trip. I find it hard to shop on-line for art or craft supplies unless I need something specific. One great thing about Hobby Lobby is their framing. Oh, their framing!  It is quick and reasonably priced, and therefore hard to pass up. Dont forget your 40% off coupon!
3. Fill in the blank. You would die if ____ followed you on Twitter.
What is twitter? We may have to change this question. Apparently none of our friends tweet as much as we do.
4. Your last meal. What is it?
Easy!  A goat bomb!  There is a small little Victorian on a side street in Savannah where The Starland Cafe lives.  This eatery makes the most delectable dishes.  One of these being a goat bomb.  It is piping hot bowl of tomato thai soup topped off with a gigantic dollop of goat cheese served with ciabatta bread wedges pressed and grilled.  Dip this bread in, swirl around and there you have it-all other food has lost its taste.
 

5. What’s your guilty pleasure?

My guilty pleasure is a monthly subscription to the Jones Design Company printable collection.  This guilty pleasure won’t break the bank–it’s less than ten buck-a-roos per month.  I look forward to the end of the month when I find an email from Jones Design with the new collection attached.  Every monthly collection differs slightly.  I thoroughly enjoy these weekly calendar printouts, cute little shopping lists and a sometimes there is even a craft project to complete with the kiddos.  Check it out here.  It is worth the look.
