The other day in that nerd comic xkcd there was a tip that said if you look up any Wikipedia article and click the first word in the entry that is either not in italics or in parenthesis, you will always end up at the entry for “Philosophy.” It works. I did it several times using the most random of words, some of them pornographic or related to Batman, neither of which have to do with...
I found audio of Arnold Schwarzenegger confessing...
To put it in perspective, I have a seven-and-half-year-old son. He wasn’t even...– Virginia film office location manager Andy Edmunds, on the length of time it took to woo Steven Spielberg to the state to film the upcoming Abe Lincoln biopic Lincoln. I’m pretty excited to have this movie getting made in my backyard (literally Steven Spielberg - I call him Steve - came over...
One of my top-tier mancrushes, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is going to be filming the upcoming Steven Spielberg film Lincoln in my hometown starting this fall. He plays the part of Abraham Lincoln’s brother whose name I don’t know so we’ll just call him Barry. This also means my chance of actually having beers with one of my top-tier mancrushes and discussing our (presumed) mutual love...
I walk a fine line between guilty pleasure and a strong desire to perform a dramatic interpretation of Bat out of Hell in front of thousands. In my mind, a pair of black archangel wings are strapped to my back. At the very least, I’d be wearing a leather jacket and I’d definitely do several of those dramatic fist things throughout the 46 minute and 33 second performance, which would be sold out...
Me, to Taquita, our Taxi Driver

Though, now that I think about it, I did like True Grit, so you got me on that. And the one with Batman and Wolverine as magicians had a pretty good plot twist in it, so that too. And actually, now that I more deeply consider my...
We shot a commercial today and it required a baby crib, only a baby crib chopped up into a lot of pieces. Why we had to chop it up into a lot of pieces doesn’t really matter to this story and don’t worry, no babies were harmed too badly. We bought the crib off craigslist (cribslist?) from a woman who didn’t need it anymore because her three children have graduated to big-girl...
Panhandler: (yelling from afar) "Yo young man can I talk to you for a minute?"
Me: "No, sorry."
Panhandler: "You're sorry? You don't even know what I want."
Me: "I have a general idea."
This magician outside of Wrigley Field makes David Blaine look like a pussy.
I’m glad we got him. He’s the one who was behind the whole World...– an “area resident” quoted in today’s newspaper. Isn’t reading the paper supposed to make you smarter?
