-Well, my work on MPW MAYHEM is finished; we did the last of the replays yesterday. Word is that EL NINO had some mic trouble on AGGRESSION, so they might not be able to use it. Nino, RIPPER and I may have to go in and re-do it. That's what they get for trying to do a show without the Martial Art-ster. Although, I really sympathize with KENNETH BARR the mad genius behind IDIOM Inc. who is in charge of putting the shows together. Seems like every show ends up needing extra work, like some kind of wrestling Goodfellas: "Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in."

-Starting May 4, a series of my articles will be appearing on www.joseyvogels.com. Josey is a popular relationship/sex columnist. Josey's informal writing style was definitely an influence on me when I started writing non-fiction, so I'm pretty excited. The columns will be sex-themed so if you're a) offended by sexual content or b) my Mom, stay away.

-Meeting with a guy from a production company this week about some scripts o' mine. Wish me luck. Better yet, wish me Emmys. I'll remember you all on Oscar night.

-Who is Kelly Donald and how has (s)he gained virtually uncontested master of the Memory Game leaderboard at www.toddk.ca? I'm this close to putting out a bounty. No one's memory is THAT good.

-Finally, for those of you looking for something to do this Friday, here's the press release on the Distress Line Comedy For A Cause fundraiser. Hope to see you there:
