    Paul F. Tompkins' "Freak Wharf" out now! Release party/show tonight!


    A new day has dawned, and Paul F. Tompkins' new album "Freak Wharf" is here! You can purchase it at any number of locations, including astrecords.com, iTunes, and AmazonMP3 (ask your local retailer about it if you want to go that route -- and tell them to contact Revolver if they want to order it).

    Also, Paul will be celebrating the album's release with a show in The Little Room at Largo tonight at 9:30pm. Call (310) 855-0350 to get in on that.

    Finally, thanks to everyone for helping to make "Freak Wharf" the #1 Comedy album on iTunes and #1 Spoken Word album on Amazon! That is awesome!

    True Story: I ordered this to be sent to my parents house where I'll be next week. I'm sitting here in my apartment with my 20 or so dollars to last me all month for groceries (oh college) and I'm STILL considering downloading the album because....PFT.....

    You know what, fuck it. I don't have to eat more than nutty bars and edamame. I'm on my way to iTunes
    Eyes are the losers in the skies.

    Love it. Particularly the aside about church still being around. Sounded so off the cuff, but was still incredibly well thought out.

    If there was a poll anymore, #1 wouldn't be going anywhere.
    Hey, check me out. I'm a ghost.

    Amazon screwed up my download! Only the first two tracks downloaded and it won't let me re-download the album.

    GAHHHHH

    I am being held hostage by my mailroom at work which hasn't delivered the CD yet! I am so excited to get this, and usually AST pre-orders arrive on the release date. So far, nothing. We live in a world of instant gratification. Why must I wait?

    GAHHHHH

    David: Ryan was out of the country until Sunday, so we weren't able to ship pre-orders early like we usually do. And there was a high volume of orders (as one would expect), which made shipping a little more tricky. I predict you will have your CD Friday.

    almost all of the pre-orders are in the mail - just a handful of canadian orders left that will be shipping to canadia today. if anyone has a question about a specific pre-order please feel free to contact me at ryan at aspecialthing dot com.

    Thanks guys. I wasn't mad at you. Good to know where to direct my obsessiveness. Now tomorrow can be the day when my Christmas-morning-like anticipation may be justified.

    I got my Freak Wharf today... much laughter ensued, before I even opened the envelope.



    My only question is, why?

    Some Foo' is maybe lifting PFT's bit on his nerdy graph making site. I was saddened that the guy has 80 comments and none of them are schooling his buttass on what's what regarding CAKE VS PIE. I already posted, maybe others here can let these nerds know about good comedy, and move some copies.

    Yeah, letting people know about PFT on a blog that seems to be have quite a few readers (it's not mine, Google Reader reccomended it to me in a list of "popular blogs") is a really stupid idea.

    Aside from the title, that blog has almost nothing to do with PFT's bit. But if you desire, post about his album on every blog you go to, I don't care.

    You're right, other than both comedy bits being about the same thing (CAKE VS PIE), there's nothing in common.

    You shouldn't let your miserableness* get in the way of people being fans of Paul and telling other people about him, way to not be a team player.

    What I object to is your implication that the person is "maybe lifting" the bit even though, if you look, they're clearly not. But whatever, clearly you're great and I stink.

    I'm very certain that when I was 5 or 6 I didn't weigh the options of cake vs. pie myself, so it's obviously a very uncommon thing to do.

    Yeah, the idea of cake vs. pie has existed long before PFT did it. He just did it funnier than everyone else. I don't think that's any reason to unleash the hounds on this poor graphsman.

    No, you got the date wrong. They mean tonight.
