I'd rather just talk about my latest shit, if you don't mind.

1 - Jim Stansel was the name of a guy who used to work with my dad when I was like 10 years old. We have a super-8 movie of him up in a hot air balloon for a radio station promotion in Dallas, and my dad's going "that's Jim Stansel! That's Jim Stansel!" and the name has always stuck in my head. I just love the name!

2 - We are working on the sequel (me and Michael Showalter). Original cast will return. Storyline is secret!

3 - Yes! For now please get the new DVD that was just released www.wainydays.com - filled with cool stuff and extras etc.

4 - i love you too

Truth is all of us in The State are constantly doing various projects with different sub-groupings of the original 11 and I think we will always continue to do that. Stella is ongoing and no plans to end it. More shows, perhaps a movie, more shorts - who knows. Tension onstage - that's always been a part of it since day 1!

The latter.

You were that guy!

I go back and forth.

Thanks - all three of us love and will keep doing Stella. Too bad CC didn't give us a 2nd season - would have been awesome.

A husband goes to a doctor and finds out he only has 8 hours to live. So he goes home to his wife and the wife says, that's terrible, I guess we should live it up these last moments - so they go to bed and have incredible sex. Then they do it again.
Afterward husband says, "I'm loving this - let's go again, honey!" Wife says, "that's easy for you to say - you don't have to get up in the morning!"
