For dumpster divers this special of time of the year is called, “Punk Christmas.” Here’s his deep dive into the world of collegiate detritus.
Filmmaker, comedian and self-proclaimed “Hobo Clown King,” Jeff Seal filmed himself repeatedly trying to hop a freight train from Queens to Montauk. Watch to see if he made it without losing any limbs.
For many, the term “dumpster diving” evokes stomach-turning images of half-moldy rolls and recently-expired tuna salad snatched from the mouths of gnawing rats. In actuality it’s quite the opposite. This video shows just how easy and clean the process of scoring great free food can be.

A Day’s Messing is a silent comedy shot on Super 8mm film in the style of Buster Keaton, George Melies and Charlie Chaplin. It follows a NYC bike messenger as he is derailed from delivering an important package by an alluring female cyclist. As he searches for her on the streets of NYC, he falls into a rabbit hole of time, space and absurdity, filled with meticulously choreographed slapstick, heartbreaking pathos and stop-motion roller skates, until serendipity surprises them both. Written, directed by and starring a clown and mime, this film re-imagines the spirit and technique of classic silent comedy, without falling prey to the cliches of contemporary silent comedy films. It’s an original and hilarious cinematic experience.
The mime that killed the meme. The final word on the “Shit Blank Says” meme.
