The Miracles of Birth
First off, my buddy Nick Weiss has just seen the DVD release of his directorial debut, the teen comedy Senior Skip Day. It stars a couple of actors I really like (though I won't tell you which of these they are). Still, they are: Tara Reid, Lea Thompson, Norm MacDonald, Gary Lundy, and Larry Miller.
Buy it at Amazon HERE. Add to your queue at Netflix HERE or Blockbuster Online HERE. Or just go pick it up at Best Buy!
And if you want a taste of his comedic sense, check out a short Nick directed, The Cat and the Blanket, over at Funny or Die.
Next, you're all (no doubt) familiar with the concept of the musical "mashup," yes? When someone deftly mixes and blends two songs together to make a single song that cleverly juxtaposes the originals? Well, my good friend Paul Davidson has recently started a website of video mashups -- both TV and film. Some very funny and clever little things in there. And hopefully the start of something great!
Please do check out CutUpTV.com, and forward the YouTube clips on to your friends!
Lastly, most of you readers of various blogs in the Scribosphere already know of and/or read Billy Mernit's excellent blog, Living the Romantic Comedy. But if you don't already, you might not know about his debut novel, Imagine Me and You. I have not read it yet, but it sounds entertaining, romantic, and cleverly mind-bending -- in the vein of Stranger than Fiction.
Congrats to all on their respective births. Guys, let me know if you need a babysitter, but please don't ask me to change any diapers!
