5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff!, July 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Meat Robot [Explicit] (MP3 Music)
Saw Myq Kaplan open for Louis CK in LA back in 2010. Made a mental note to definitely look up his stuff, and bought "Vegan Mind Meld".

"Meat Robot" is Kaplan's 2nd album, and a better one at that. While Vegan Mind Meld was good, Myq has a better presence and better timing on this one. He also seems more confident in talking about the various qualities, qualities that normally would make you lack confidence (e.g., he's a nerd with a nasal-y voice!).

A lot of his stuff is wordplay and pushing out scenarios on that. But he also touches on topics like his veganism, his racist grandmother, being a Jew, etc. All of it is hilarious -- can make for distracting driving!!

If you're pretty smart, a little dorky (or a lot!) and appreciate quick wit, then Myq is definitely your guy. I think he's a solid up and comer on the comedy circuit, and can't wait to hear more material.

In a lot of ways I identify with him, so I guess that's a bias...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Comedy, Deceptive DVD, March 29, 2005
This review is from: Mitch All Together (Audio CD)
I just bought the CD, and I really like Mitch's comedy. This CD is, in my opinion better than "Strategic Grill Locations," where he oftentimes makes kind of bad jokes and then calls himself on it. His material and delivery are much stronger on this album, and he's gotten a bit more clever too.

Be warned though, his comedy isn't for everyone. However, if you are (or used to be, or enjoy a friend who is) a pothead, you might like his style a little more. He's kind of like a laid back funny hippy. Sometimes the jokes are intelligent, but he oftentimes just plays on words, which in itself is clever, but not "intellectual comedy" that is sometimes popular.

He does have his own style, which could turn some people off, but I would think that those people are they type that would think that he really tries to be like his comedic character in real life.

About the DVD, it is not footage from the CD, but from his comedy central special instead. It actually has a lot (but not all of) the material from Strategic Grill locations. It has the *complete*, unedited version of his comedy central special, which has some jokes that I have never heard, also some tags on old jokes that I never heard (the Ritz cracker tags are really good, some are not on Strategic Grill Locations).

Anyway, really good, although I wish they had footage from the same album too. Basically, if you like the sound samples, you will love the CD and DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic, March 13, 2005
The music on this album sounds really authentic. It has an excellent Greek feel to it that doesn't sound overly produced or influenced in a "pop"-ish way. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to major philosophical problems, January 22, 2001
This book is excellent for getting a good grasp on some of the contemporary problems involved in metaphysics. He seems to take sides in the determinism section, but maintains the other side to a degree that keeps the problem (barely) alive. The text is straightforward and very readable.
