fixation friday: aziz


I can't believe it's Friday already!!! I think this great weather has been going to my head. The high here today is going to be in the lower 80's! Ok I think I just used up all my exclamation points in two sentences.

Today's Fixation Friday came to me via reading the awesome Mrs. 'Vicki Smalls' blog about her hubby's birthday. It appears her hubby is a big fan of Aziz Ansari, as am I. I've recently become seriously obsessed with him. Last night was a huge disappointment, all of my Thursday night shows were reruns, this meant no more new Aziz jokes or giggles and that gave me a case of the sads, which only cure was to watch Billy Madison for the bajillionth time. Billy Madison is another fixation for another time - seriously I watched this movie almost EVERY night my junior year in college with my roomies - OBSESSED! Anyweirdo - here goes....

So, show of hands, how many of you have ANY idea who I'm talking about right now? Aziz Ansari. AZIZ ANSARI?!?!?! I guess yelling it doesn't make you understand it anymore than me saying it with an inside voice, does it? You ever wonder why people do that? Like yelling will make it all come clear to the person you're speaking to? My ex used to work at a pawn shop and when Hispanic people would come in and they only spoke broken English he would get impatient and start explaining to them what he had to say in a louder voice. One day I finally said to him while there... "They speak Spanish, they aren't deaf!" This only made him more angry at the time, but his Spanish speaking co-workers got a good chuckle out of it. Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah AZIZ!


For those of you not in the know - he's a extremely funny comedian. He's been lighting up my life and M's on one of our new favorite shows, Parks and Rec on NBC's Thursday night line up. Seriously if you haven't seen this show you're missing out. It takes a lot for me to want to see anything on Thursday night other than 30 Rock or The Office but honestly, Parks and Rec is quickly stealing my heart - sorry 30 and Office, it's true. Aziz plays Tom Haverford - he's a club loving guy just trying to have a good time, and find a girl in the small town of Pawnee. But his real charm/comedy shows in how he treats his co-workers in the local city government's parks and recreation department. His character is in stiff competition for my heart next to Ron 'F-cking' Swanson (played by Nick Offerman) and April Ludgate (played by Aubrey Plaza) - she seriously makes my heart sing. Crap, maybe I should have made this a fixation on Parks and Rec not Aziz - BACK TO BUSINESS!

You may also remember Aziz in Funny People, with Adam Sandler, Seth Rogan (love), Jonah Hill (love) and Aubrey Plaza mentioned above. Or maybe Observe and Report, again with Seth Rogan or even I Love You, Man! - stay tuned for my fixation with Jason Segal, it's bound to happen soon enough - and/or Paul Rudd. 

I wish I could explain Aziz's comedy but it's better left for you to discover on your own. So google him, he's f-ckin' delicious!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I can't believe it's Easter already! Remember the reason for this holiday and cherish the time with your family and friends. And while you're at it, eat some peeps for me. I'm trying to be good, I'm in full watching-what-i-eat mode right now! Attempting to go with more natural items and less prepackaged things. And besides, I already devoured half a package of them yesterday, I had a weak moment!

PEEPS OUT!

Pin It!

I LOVE Parks & Rec! Especially funny since I work in govt. and am originally from small town Indiana.

Happy Easter!

I love this homage to Aziz! He's a hysterical guy, I tell ya. Ramon has been obsessing over his stand-up routines since we got hooked on him via the movies you mentioned, and of course Parks & Rec. (DJ Roomba still makes me lose it.) His new tour is supposed to have ALL new stuff, so neither of us can wait to go!!

Glad I/Aziz could inspire you :)

Vic - I seriously want a DJ Roomba of my own! Like BAD! He's so funny in that show and I would KILL to see him do stand up - you are SO lucky!

I noticed his tour and the only dates that are close to us are during the Bonaroo Concert - annnnnd I doubt well got to that. M, the boyfriend is NOT a fan. ;)

Thank you for the inspiration girl!

I capital L Love Parks & Rec, and he's SO funny on it. I never heard of him before Parks & Rec, but I guess he was on scrubs, too! He's one of the highlights of my Thursdays now that The Office isn't that funny.

Meghan said...

Thanks for the heads up! Of all of those, I've only seen "I Love You, Man!"

I EFFING love Aziz and Parks and Rec. LOVE.

Ok, so last week (or the week before) my heart was stolen by the Park Ranger guy. HAVE YOU SEEN AVATAR? And when Tom Haverford had to run alongside of the golf cart I nearly pissed myself.

I do like Parks and Rec. But my first love REALLY has to be The Office. I know....it's hard to switch from your first love....

Oh, Billy Madison is one of my favorites.

See?

Aziz Ansari is so funny! I love Parks & Recreation! When I first started watching it I wasn't too impressed but I kept DVRing it. I'm so glad I did because now I think I like it even more than The Office! It never fails to crack me up.
