Measuring productivity by chicken breasts

The radio show taught us something great about writing big projects. The best way to accomplish amazing amounts of comedic writing is to go somewhere. Just go get a house for a week, get a bunch of food and write. We wrote the bulk of our radio shows that way and we have written all projects since in the same form. It started in New Buffalo, MI with Stephe’s father-in-law’s summer home. We have a ton of pictures. Then we went to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin one summer and then Berwyn for a couple straight and then back to New Buffalo. We have done this 6 times as a group. The best part? The $400 receipt from Sams Club. Wanna know what we bought?

We get all our groceries before we go up there and then just schedule meals for the week that we are there. We are all responsible for bringing a case of beer. Stephe does the cooking when he isn’t sick from his own cooking (gotcha!). And we aren’t talking frozen pizzas and ham sandwiches. NO! As Oscar Wilde once said “To write good comedy, you must eat good food.” Seriously, we have never had a pizza. Save that Jacks or Tombstone shit for short-form improv. Here’s a list of foods we’ve eaten.

Steak.
Chicken Breasts.
Beef sandwiches.
Grilled Cheeses.
Pasta (Ravioli is good).
Hot dogs.
Hamburgers.
Tacos (my favorite).
Salads (Asian anybody?).
A Pork Roast.
Sausages.
Tater Tots.
Mashed Potatoes.
Chili
A buttload of Spree candies.
weird energy granola bars.
Twizzlers (make you feel shitty).
Bananas.
Apples.
Little Twixes (again, shitty).
A sheet cake (my birthday).
Cornish Hens.

Anything else guys I’m missing?
