FREE SHEZ! Jailed for making funny video.


FREE SHEZ! Jailed for making funny video.

Thank you Thomas Lennon for the tweet!  This makes me livid.  As someone who was kicked out of college for refusing to stop publishing a student newspaper, this crap gets my attention.  I was put on the FBI’s Subversives List, but never sent to jail.  Yet.  This bullshit needs to stop NOW, across the globe.  Stop suppressing speech, governments, corporations and schools!  Stop jailing comics.  This is 2013, not the Dark Ages.

I signed the online petition, liked the Facebook page, and followed the Twitter page.  I also made a new flag for my Barbie monitor, so tomorrow everybody on the Las Vegas Strip and at the Fremont Street Experience who get a picture with me as FFIREHS will have the Barbie monitor flag reading “#FREESHEZ FreeShez.com”.

Now you know.  What are you going to do?

Top 10 Ways to Quickly Earn the Wrath of the AD


Top 10 Ways to Quickly Earn the Wrath of the AD

Hat tip for this to an assistant director it has always been a pleasure to work for, Paddy Connor!  This is a brilliant and necessary quick read for ANYONE who wants to survive and thrive on any TV or film set, even if you’re not one of those strange itchy people scurrying around like Charlie Sheen on serious tiger’s blood, talking into their hand like you’re not even there.  They one of the many Jedi of the Director.  Ignore or disrespect them at your peril.

The evolution of my website face lift crawls along.  I find GoDaddy slightly more appealing than Vlad Putin and the Indian Supreme Court, so suggestions of any superior hosting alternatives are gratefully welcome.  My web design skills are nearly as extraordinary as a Gwenylth Paltrow book club.  Nevertheless my control maniac within requires on demand web design options that are quite … fluid.  I may just resort to a web design Lego system like WordPress, but might we crowd source a solution here for me?  Thanks!

The Saga of My College Expulsion


The Saga of My College Expulsion

Here’s the start of a work in progress, my account of what happened when I attended Hillsdale College and the aftermath, with links to various news articles and other sources.  This major life trauma sent me into a tailspin in my 20’s and from which I’m still recovering.  It is a large source of my pain and therefore my comedic voice.  If a movie’s ever made, it will be The Social Network meets Something Wicked This Way Comes.  Except I’m the guy on food stamps saving up to file bankruptcy.
