Start GOING DEEP WITH DAVID REES this very night. 

14 years ago this summer I met David Rees for the first time at the COOLIDGE in Brookline, Massachusetts. 

Prior to that I knew him only from his self-published clip art karate comic entitled MY NEW FIGHTING TECHNIQUE IS UNSTOPPABLE.

Jay Evans gave me that comic in the spring of 2000 when something very sad was happening in my life, and I laughed so so hard. It was a good gift. 

So I invited him to this event I was doing at the Coolidge, and we have been friends ever since. But I do not praise David Rees because he is a friend, but because he a GENIUS.

Consider his body of work: 

—The incredible clip art water cooler war comic GET YOUR WAR ON.

—An instructive and actually moving book about PENCIL SHARPENING based on his ACTUAL CAREER as an artisanal pencil sharpener. 

—The hilarious series about domestic spying called CODEFELLAS starring the great EMILY HELLER

(I was also in CODEFELLAS, PS, because if David ever asks met to do something, I answer YES, and I never ever regret it.) 

Dude has made me laugh harder and think harder about life and art than anyone, and tonight he will start helping you to think CLEARLY for once about HOW TO MAKE ICE, HOW TO DIG A HOLE, and HOW TO TIE KNOTS. 

SO PLEASE SAY “YES” TO DAVID REES.

I really think you will enjoy this show.

And as always, despite your natural internet preferences for streamin’ and swipin’, I would consider it a favor if you could find a way to watch it TONIGHT on TELEVISION at 10PM on National Geographic’s channel, and perhaps let social media and @NatGeoChannel know that that’s what you’re doing. 

Throughout the day I will be sharing more of my favorite DAVID REES short films.

I am also looking for a place with a television in Maine so that I can watch the show tonight as well. 

CONTACT ME IF YOU CAN HELP.

Otherwise, that is all. 

signed, John Hodgman.

PS: Please feel free to retweet and retumbl this letter so that we can remain friends. I REALLY WANT THIS SHOW TO SUCCEED, and I do not make any money off of it. 

PPS: TONIGHT AT 10PM ON NATIONAL GEO’S CHANNEL TONIGHT TONIGHT TONIGHT (July 14, 2014, “Bastille Day”) TONIGHT! 

My Tivo is in an advanced state of readiness for this, and I have the emails to prove it.

Fun fact: I first saw David Rees give an overhead-projector-aided presentation of his Get Your War on comics in the basement of a church in Hollywood in what I imagine was 2002, but honestly could have been much later. 

In fact, I have David Rees to thank for transforming my dim awareness of John Hodgman into the thick, warm fandom I cloak myself in today, through a series of lightly attended but immensely satisfying stand up showcases in Manhattan in, what? 2010? Who knows?

Anyway, I would never admit to John Hodgman that I was Rees’ fan first, because I suspect he might yell at me, but if I ever get a chance to tell David Rees, you can bet I will.

Anyhow, watch this show. I haven’t seen a single episode yet, but I can already promise you that the world needs more stuff like this.

I’m going to assume this review is talking about the flawlessness of the cell phone screen composites. Because YES THEY WERE YOU ARE WELCOME.

Look at this picture for like 30 seconds. Stare at it. Don’t scroll away, don’t just think “Oh, a cat and an idiot” and move on with your day. 
Gaze into it and realize, as I did, that there is a LOT going on here.

Well, I used to live near the Santa Monica courthouse, so I already know the answer to this, but I’ll give everyone else a chance to respond.
