Make mine a Double-A

Thanks to Fairvilla Megastore for making traffic bearable the other day. Driving by the adult novelty store I noticed that their pre-Valentine's marquis reads "All you need is love - and batteries."

Clip and Save (Your Ass)

I'm shocked - shocked - to realize that it's been over a month since I've posted anything, but I don't think it will come as a surprise to anyone that paid gigs have to come first and I'm thankful to have had enough of them to keep me that busy.

That said, this is a long-overdue posting of the last story I did for the Orlando Weekly which came out on Christmas Eve, 2008. Called "Clip and Save (Your Ass)" it's what I like to think of as behavioral modification coupons - since no one can afford actual things anymore the best we can do for each other is change our behavior.

Hope the tiny url works and hope you enjoy!

Nice Girls (and Mean Girls) Finish Last

This is an excellent story by Tana Geneva of about why the workplace doesn't seem to reward women the way it does men:

 Plenty to learn from here. Wish I could say it's surprising that hard work and talent don't count for much, but here in Wonderland, nothing surprises me anymore.

The Cleaner

OK - this is my first step away from my usual pop-culture / sex / humor sensibilities and into something more serious. The piece is called "The Cleaner" and was the cover story of the Orlando Weekly this week. It's about crime scene cleaners - not exactly holiday-upbeat - a bit dark and grisly, in fact (not hard to deduce from the subject matter, huh) but I'm really proud of the result. Hope you enjoy it (and if you do, don't be shy to comment on their website!)

2-Minute Zombie

I know copying & pasting a url is a pain, but for some reason I can't get this page to link...I promise, though it's worth it.
It's a two-minute film of a two-hour zombie make-up job done on my by Barry Andrson, head of the art department for Ripley Entertainment and make-up artist on movies like Day of the Dead and Hairspray. It's really cool - totally worth a cut-and-paste.

Sexiest Psychos in Cinema / Why Scary is Sexy

I was so overwhelmed when my first video blog got  3,497 hits on YouTube  (so far…and thanks to being picked up by – pretty great incentive to do another one, just in time for Halloween!

This one is on the 5 Hottest Psychos in Cinema with a special 2-minute bonus track on the physiological and psychological reasons why scary can turn people on (this is my favorite bit - short & sweet).

Thank you so much to Jim DeSantis for all his hard work, patience and AWESOME editing and titles! (check out his Movie Brain Rot podcast under “Alice Loves…”) Jim, You Rock!
And I hope everyone likes watching these as much as we enjoyed making 'em. :)
