Guess Who I Met Today?

So for those of you who don't speak literary fag - it rhymes with Rony Smushner.

That's right ladies and homos - I met Tony DAMN Kushner. He came to Caroline, Or Change today. With the beautiful and glam Jeanine Tesori. It was one of the thrills of my lifetime. It would be like being in Streetcar Named Desire and Tennessee Williams walks in.

Tony F'ing Kushner. And this show especially - because it is so close to his real life. So I felt like was playing his dad - for him - in front of him. Holy Jew-us.

So - I nailed it - he approved and loved it and one of his least favorite moments we did well and he loved it and loved us.

So hopefully this was not REALLY the last you'll hear of this Chicago cast of Caroline.

The Daily Purge turns 3 Years Old!

3 years ago today, Oct. 25th, The Daily Purge was born... and by born, I mean, the first episode was put on a feed that I didn't know how to work very well and took countless hours of painstaking trial and error to get to work. The first 5 episodes had 24 listeners, was recorded with a $15 USB mic, and was missing a very important person, who to this day still makes me laugh out loud and is my very very dear friend. After 3 years, it is a joy for us to get to talk to each other and make you all laugh in embarrassing places :)

For those of you that have just started and for the people that have been with us from the beginning... Thanks for listening!

Here is the cover art to the first episode, before Rob joined full time:(barf, how many different fonts could I use... seriously... there is like 12)

"for the BIBLE tells me so" = Holy Crap, it's amazing.

So I took a sick day yesterday and spent some quality time on the couch trying to get the rest I need to finally get over this damn cold and be able to speak. I heard about this documentary about the church and homosexuality a while back called, "for the BIBLE tells me so" and it is now available on DVD. I have had it for a few days and decided to give it a try... I haven't been so moved by a movie in so long. This movie is AMAZING! This is a wonderful resource for families, friends, and those struggling reconciling their homosexuality with their faith. This movie is a wonderful example of family values... and of course, made me cry me eyes out.

Watch the Trailer... and buy it here.

I love teenagers...

So, my cousin Mike is one of the very few teenage youths supporting McCain. So he posted this status update on his facebook page and the response from one of his other teenage friends is f-ing brilliant. (click to see a larger image)Alex P. you got moxie... and I love that a teenage says "get with the program" it's just a Dad/Gym Teacher/Old Man phrase... love it.

Lots of talk shows have been doing special tributes to the late Paul Newman this week.

Yummers. I'll take some Newman's Own on that please.
