Oh snaps.

Welcome to the internets. Where most of you spend countless hours during the week. We get paid to sit in front of the computer and pretend to do work, but really, we're finding out what Lindsay Lohan had for breakfast and googling awkward pictures of cats. Here's a toast (a blog toast because drinking is NOT allowed during work...) to all of you 40 hours a week craftsmen. Because let's be honest, we are all craftsmen. Do you know how hard it is to quickly exit a facebook browser?

As Long As You Love Me Teaser

OMG!!!!  24 Hours until the premiere of Justin Bieber's "As long as you love me" premieres!!  Here's a teaser..............

....oh okay.

A dog rack.

I need this.  You can buy one HERE.  It doesn't look weird at all, I promise.

Snoop Dogg is now Snoop Lion.

Well this is weird.  After announcing that he was leaving the rap game and becoming a reggae singer, Snoop Dogg has also announced that he is also changing his name to Snoop Lion.  How did this come about?

"I want to bury Snoop Dogg, and become Snoop Lion," he said. "I didn't know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, 'Snoop Dogg.' And he looked me in my eyes and said, 'No more. You are the light; you are the lion.' From that moment on, it's like I had started to understand why I was there."

This is just weird.  

Lisa Frank Sticker App!

Good news!  There's a Lisa Frank sticker app to add stickers to any of your photos!!!

Bad news!  It's absolutely TERRIBLE.

Vote for Mindy Meyer (NOT)

If you haven't heard, Mindy Meyer is running for state Senate.  She is 22 years old, looks like a cast member from the Jersey Shore and and most importantly, tackles the "big stuff" with her annoying fucking voice.  WELCOME TO AMERICA, FOLKS!  Where people like Mindy Meyer can RUN FOR STATE SENATE.

Happy Tuesday!

I felt like this little pup when I woke up this morning...I just couldn't...do........it.  Ugh.

Founder of Amazon donates $2.5 million Marriage Equality Campaign


"Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com, and his wife, MacKenzie, have agreed to donate $2.5 million to help pass a same-sex marriage referendum in Washington State, instantly becoming among the largest financial backers of gay marriage rights in the country.... Mr. Bezos was approached via e-mail on Sunday by Jennifer Cast, one of Amazon’s earliest employees and a lesbian mother of four children who is now a fund-raising chairwoman of the pro-referendum effort. In her e-mail, sent Sunday evening, Ms. Cast, 50, implored Mr. Bezos to understand the importance of the issue to her and her longtime partner... In the e-mail, Ms. Cast described in detail the pain she endured as a young adult and the difficulties she faced publicly acknowledging her sexuality. At the end, she pointedly asked him to donate between $100,000 and $200,000 to the referendum cause. “Jeff, I suspect you support marriage equality,” she wrote. “I beg you not to sit on the sidelines and hope the vote goes our way. Help us make it so.

She hit “send” and waited. Two days later, on Tuesday, she received a reply while in a car with her family. Recalling that moment, she said she had to read it out loud twice to make sure she had read it right.

“Jen,” the e-mail said, “this is right for so many reasons. We’re in for $2.5 million. Jeff & MacKenzie.”

When I get married, I'm registering with Amazon.  DUH.  THANK YOU!

It's FRIDAY bitches!

Be safe, be happy, be thankful - have a good one friends!

The Pasadena Playhouse banned my friend's play.

This is some disheartening news.  Yesterday I got word that my friend Gina's play, "Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo" was BANNED from the Pasadena Playhouse even though everything was set up and the show was supposed to go down in a couple of weeks.  Why?  Because of the word "Lesbo" in the title.  The Pasadena Playhouse refused to have their name associated with the title of the play and my friend was either forced to change the name of the play or cancel the show.  Please read the following from my friend:

Let's do something about this friends!

Los Angeles, CA July 26, 2012

Well, we’ve officially been censored. I shouldn’t be shocked, but I am. It is with so much disappointment and sadness that I sit down to type what I’m about to tell you.

We have been gearing up for a second run of Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo—our joyful dance/theater piece about homophobic bullying in elementary school. The show would have taken place on August 25 & 26th at the Pasadena Playhouse’s Carrie Hamilton Theater. I haven’t been able to officially announce the show yet, because I thought we were confirmed… then it suddenly seemed that we were not 100% confirmed… then all of a sudden there was a strange radio silence on their end.

It turns out, the Artistic Director of the Pasadena Playhouse has a problem with the title of the play. I was told that unless we change the title—presumably to remove the word “Lesbo,” although this was never actually stated— we are not welcome to perform at the Carrie Hamilton Theater.


Bear in mind that we’re talking about a RENTAL here. I wanted to pay money, out of pocket, to rent a theater that, to my understanding, presents sophisticated and mature work all the time. (A recent production entitled “ASS” was not asked to change its title, although the Artistic Director feels that this doesn’t count, because it was only a staged reading and not heavily marketed.) As part of our rental agreement, the theater would provide us with only the barest minimum of technical and box office support— on my dime. In no way were we asking them to fund or endorse Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo. I don’t believe any precious subscriber dollars would have been funneled towards our groundbreaking little gay play.

Needless to say, I refuse to change the title of the show. First and foremost, I’m not in the habit of kowtowing to homophobic censorship. And that’s what this is— make no mistake; homophobic censorship and discrimination. Second and almost irrelevantly, Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo already had a tremendously successful run at Highways Performance Space— are we really expected to confuse our potential supporters and diminish the amazing momentum this show has had, by changing the name to pander to a more conservative Pasadena audience?!

In my back-and-forth with Artistic Director Sheldon Epps, he was unfailingly kind and polite… but also adamantly evasive. When I repeatedly asked him *what* about the title was so offensive and to *whom,* his final answer was that it causes “challenges to our branding efforts which we choose not to face for internal reasons at this time.”

So, it is with an incredibly sad and heavy heart that I have to announce that there will be no more performances of Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo this Summer. The show is canceled. (Needless to say, it would be impossible to find a comparable theater at such short notice. And personally, I would rather devote my efforts to editing the DVD of the show, rather than fight with a theater to have it produced.)


PHONE: (626) 356-7529

PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL— I don’t think name-calling or threatening language will help our cause. But perhaps you could tell him that you WOULD come to see a play with “Lesbo” in the title… and that you now WON’T be interested in seeing any future productions at the Pasadena Playhouse? 

I’m so disheartened, I don’t even know what to do. Thanks for listening and for being such amazing supporters of this show.

The Pasadena Playhouse was "FLOODED" with emails and phone calls yesterday. AMAZING. THANK YOU, EVERYONE! But the bad news is, many of you received a response that was a straight up lie.

In case you missed it, TALES OF A FOURTH GRADE LESBO's August performances were just canceled due to Sheldon Epps, Artistic Director of the Pasadena Playhouse, refusing to rent the Carrie Hamilton Theater to a play with "Lesbo" in the title. (For the full story, click the link below.)

Yesterday, friends like you showed your support with dozens of emails and calls. HOWEVER, apparently Mr. Epps has been sending out a form letter saying: "It is not true that the production was canceled or rejected. We were in the middle of negotiations on a rental agreement that would serve all parties involved in the best possible way. Conversations that I am more than willing to continue, and that I believed were in process."

THIS IS EXTREMELY DISINGENUOUS ON MR. EPPS' PART. I was told, in no uncertain terms, that either we change the title or we cannot rent the theater. I told him that this would mean canceling the show. His misleading email has served to defuse a lot of people's anger, when the fact remains that our show is still BANNED from his space!

PLEASE CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE WORD. Sheldon Epps' refusal to open The Carrie Hamilton Theater to a play with a queer title constitutes artistic censorship and homophobic discrimination, and WE STILL NEED MORE CALLS AND EMAILS OF SUPPORT!

Dane Cook is a dickhead.

One week ago today, 12 people were killed and 58 people were injured in a senseless act of violence in a Colorado theater.  Here is Dane Cook making a joke about it already.

My Olympic Crushes.

Welp, it's that time again - time to drool over the hot athletes that are part of the Olympics.  Let's start off with the [future] love of my life - Lolo Jones.  Are you serious right now?  Umm................also, she's a virgin.  She's 29, is 1/4 of every ethnicity (duh) and is stinking hot.  I don't even know what she does - something with jumping and running or something.  But whatever, I'll be watching.

Up next is someone from my hometown - Hope Solo.  When I worked for Vitaminwater, I used to deliver product to her creepy house in the woods.  But nonetheless, she's so nice.  Fun fact:  She went to a high school dance with my brother.  

Finally, there's Michelle Jenneke.  Why?  Because before every race, she does a dance.  Slow motion pleeeease....
