Temporal Shift

It’s been a while, the longest while since I started this blog in fact. I got an email from Google last week letting me know that the site wasn’t mobile friendly anymore, so I logged on to fix it, and saw that I didn’t post anything at all here in 2014. I’ve still been online, just sharing my thoughts in other places like Twitter, Facebook and commenting on various other sites. I’ve added links to the menu above so you can check them out if you’re so inclined. I haven’t even really been that active on those places in the last few months because I always seem to be out of time.

In the years since I’ve started this blog, the amount of things available to fill my free time has grown considerably. I’ve upgraded my TiVo to a modern unit that’s capable of recording six channels at once. There’s shit on there from last year, entire seasons of shows that I haven’t got around to watching because there’s not enough time in the day. I still haven’t watched The Knick, Extant, or Gang Related (which I just learned was cancelled when I looked for the link to the show, that’s what I get for trying to avoid spoilers); I haven’t watched Halt And Catch Fire either and they added it to Netflix already, so I might as well delete those and make space for shit I won’t get around to watching until Christmas.

Yes, those shows are actually on my TiVo.

She Bop

Continuing with the masturbation theme, I had this Cyndi Lauper song in mind because she was on WWE Raw a few weeks back with Wendi Richter presenting The One Man Southern Rock Band (that’s an actual wrestler, I’m not making that shit up) with a gold record, basically for being a jerk off. I was going to embed the original video for the song, and point out that Wendi Richter is the waitress with the big earrings, you can spot Captain Lou Albano in rollers, and the guy that plays the biker/love interest is Dave Wolff, who was Lauper’s producer at the time, but I can’t find jack shit about him on the internet, except this old clip of Roddy Piper power slamming him after presenting Captain Lou with a gold record and kicking Cyndi in the face (which is the scenario Lauper’s recent WWE appearance was referencing).

Downtown

Composed by Tony Hatch and original recorded by Petula Clark, Downtown has proven to be an enduring classic, covered by myriad artists in various genres and popping up repeatedly in popular films and television programs. The video embedded here is of Emma Bunton‘s version, which was the Official Charity Song for the BBC’s Children in Need a few years back. Judging the video, Emma Bunton must have thought they needed erections. I chose this version because, well, I already mentioned Emma Bunton and erections; need I say more? Happy Saturday!

I’m going to be at ITV Fest/PopCon 2012

A few months ago I worked on a 10 minute pilot sample for a series called Frog Kissers, the story of four women in New York City who reason that in order to find a prince you have to kiss a lot of frogs, and make a pact to kiss 100 men over the course of a year to find their prince(s). I have a brief role as one of the “frogs.” Frog Kissers is created by Debra Kirschner, who also wrote and directed the pilot sample; she also produced with Sherese Robinson.

The pilot sample of Frog Kissers is screening at this year’s International TV Festival/PopCon in Los Angeles, California. I’ll be attending the Fest from July 5-8, so if you happen to be in L.A., be sure to come check out the screening and stop by to say, “What’s up?” to me in person. Debra and Sherese are both friendly people, so come by and say, “Hi!” to them too.

We’d love to have a good crowd at the screening, so if you can’t make it, please spread the word to anyone you know who may be able and interested in attending. Here’s the trailer (look fast for my shiny forehead around the 1:02 mark):

Hope to see you there!

UPDATE (6/26/2012): Debra has created a Facebook event for the Frog Kissers screening for those of you who would like to RSVP — smile

I’m pretty sure she’s not a lesbian

Ever since John From Cincinnati premiered, I’ve been getting hits from folks searching for "John From Cincinnati lesbian." I assume they’re looking for information on tomboy surfer Keala Kennelly, who plays tomboy surfer Kai on the show. As far as I know, neither of them (Keala or Kai) are lesbians, but I could be wrong. In any case, if you’re one of those folks intrigued by Keala, check out her profiles at lat34.com and Surfer Magazine, then check out this video of her in action, then come back here to watch the six minute interview with her below (courtesy of HBO).
