Thrashback Thursday – 2004

Thrashback Thursday – 2004

If I ever became a bikini, it’d only be because I love the beach.
By Jason Klamm

When my friend Glenn said “Damn, I’d like to be that bikini,” I understood what he meant. But it made me think. What must it be to life your life as a bikini? And as I pondered this, I slowly realized that I, too, wished to be a bikini. But if I ever became a bikini, it’d be only be because I love the beach so much.

The sun rippling across my fabric, I’d roll in the sand and enjoy the day with the rest of the bikinis. The sound of seagulls singing their desolate song would lull me to sleep under the ass I was currently strapped to. The smell of the salt air would bring me back to parasailing with Uncle Rod. But, then again- can a bikini have an uncle? After all, aren’t all bikinis female? I’m not really sure.

But I do know that the highlight of my day as a bikini would come in the water. I love the envelope of that warm, barreling current. I would soon soak in the water that now covers the adequate to beautiful breasts that I protect. These would be my breasts to take care of. I would be their guardian. Lest a hand come near, or a UV ray offend, my strong fabric would keep my breasts from danger.

Not that I’d be so possessive- rather, they wouldn’t be MY breasts in an absolute sense. But I would feel a sense of urgency to protect them. My twin charges, they would be my soul thought. As would the ass.

I wonder what kind of fabric I’d be. It seems to me that I wouldn’t want to be a standard sort of polyester- no need to conform as all the other bikinis do. Neither would I want to be something like those swimsuit models wear- suede, or something. I would want to be something protective, however- something sensible and practical. And plastic seems the way to go. Maybe- if I were get my wish, a poly-cotton blend, to bring just enough breathability and comfort simultaneously to those breasts, and, of course, ass, that I would be the sole guardian of.

And thusly, I would awake only on those days that my dear friends the breasts and ass would travel to the beach. The salt air in my lungs, wherever those might be, the sun beating down on me, and the sound of waves lapping at me. It sure would be wonderful to be a bikini, just not in that pervert way.

Why did New York City reject my suggestions for the Freedom Tower? (3/5/04)

(Originally posted 3/5/04) By Jason Klamm

In case you’re unaware, yesterday New York City held a ceremony to celebrate the finished design for the building to take the place of the World Trade Center. Called “The Freedom Tower,” it will stand 1,776 feet. I suggested rounding up to 1,780 feet, because round numbers just make it sound taller. But then again, they rejected all of my ideas.

I will say, firstly, that I am pleased to hear they changed the name of the building from “The French Tower,” because that’s just not in the American spirit, it doesn’t seem. But the building, to my somewhat trained eye, still just doesn’t seem to project the power they were looking for. With it’s tapered design, it doesn’t seem as stable as so many of the buildings surrounding it.

My suggestions began with two stabilizing structures at the bottom. Were I to be in charge of increasing New York’s tourism and image, I’d want to recall to the visitor’s mind something of a theme park, without being so frivolous. Inspired by Disney’s Epcot Center, I submitted a slightly revised blueprint of the building featuring two geodesic domes at the base, in which would be museums, terrariums, solar power transmitters and a Starbucks.

I was most perplexed by their rejection of the solar power idea. After all, this new design contains giant wind turbines to power almost half of the Freedom Tower. But could these turbines provide the necessary electricity to power the fountain I’d planned in place of its radio antenna? Using an incredible 1,000 gallons per cycle (recycling it of course in my version’s built-in reservoir), the Freedom Fountain would gush about eight times a second, shooting high enough to be seen by the entire city! Tell me, could a soul be left unimpressed?

It seems that perhaps my ideas were a bit too forward-thinking for the city planners of New York City. But I doubt it’s too late to make a few suggestions to those advertising the new structure. After all, the root of success is advertising. What better way to say “Welcome,” “Bring It On,” “Capitalism is Fun” and “Hey, Pal, I Like Your Style” than by saying “The Freedom Tower: Here’s Mud in Your Eye.” That’s what I thought.

Dinosaurs: They Certainly Were Big (2004)

Actually, this was created in 2002 for a science class at Columbia College Chicago, but when I put it on an early video-sharing site, it got enough views to get our video played on Frontier Airlines, and even got me interviewed in The New York Times, Chicago Sun-Times and some other places.  Enjoy my excess of hair.

StolenDress Throwback – DJCH Podcast Episode 1 – Fame – The New Caste (Feb 5, 2014)

Why not listen to our weirdest podcast in it’s most raw form?  Here’s episode one of the Dan and Jay’s Comedy Hour podcast.

The year was 1993.  Dan Gomiller and Jason Klamm pressed record on a tape player for the first time as a comedy duo.  On this inaugural episode of the Dan and Jay’s Comedy Hour podcast, Dan and Jay discuss their few memories of this first recording and play a clip that they quickly beg for forgiveness for.  They also take some time to catch up.

Each week on the Dan and Jay’s Comedy Hour Podcast, comedians Dan Gomiller and Jason Klamm catch up and discuss their first-ever comedic works, including early teenage cassette-based improv and VHS feature film attempts.
