Thanks so much to LAist for having me as Day Editor, sitting in for Tony Pierce! Hopefully, some of the people who know me from my comedy/entertainment public access show caught me on your site today, who may have been wondering where I have been the past year, for those viewers who haven’t seen me on City TV 35.
And I love your blog because it represents so much L.A. culture for all to live vicariously through! So regarding what else do I want to talk about, if you know me from my comedy TV show, check out my recent public advocate work. You’ll trip, because it’s pretty hilarious how my comedy career has taken this most un-expected twist.
And if you know me from the past year (plus) on the radio, blogs, LA Weekly and City TV 35, check out my comedy videos and original music. (I’m a musician who got into comedy, cause it was a cheaper creative outlet (don’t need a studio or amps), that fell into public advocacy and pulled an “Andy Kaufman” and stayed in my public access character the whole time.
Here are some of the sites to check out:
www.zuma.podomatic.com for Zuma Dogg, LIVE "in-studio" with Kevin James for the full hour on AM 870-KRLA. It was from earlier this month/recent.
www.zumadogg.podomatic.com for original ZD hip hop jiz-ams AND some previous radio calls.
Go to my official website for everything else, including my custom ZD "Batcomputer" search engines to help YOU fight fraud, waste and abuse in YOUR neighborhood, plus archives from all the issues I have blogged about over the past year.
AND, just released yesterday, just in time for today on LAist, "Zuma Dogg's "Master File" of information I synthesized from many top authors and consultants which all goes into creating one Big ZD each day on radio, TV and blogs. I believe it contains all the answers this City needs to transform itself. Then it's up to all of us to apply it in all areas of our lives, each day. Imagine if everyone in the City, tried to be just a little more aware of how they can improve the quality and productivity (reduce waste, inefficiency and total cost)! At the end of the day, we would have more money to put back into the city and could more effectively reduce these stressful citywide side effects we are stuck with due to the massive, preventable inefficiencies.
