Entry 2.2
So we re-shot "ASK ED THE HEAD" # 3 yesterday, We had some technical difficulties on the previous one, so we went ahead and re shot it. This time the end result was much better. Even Mr. E, de Le Tette' was happier. This installment should be up some time after new years, ETH #2 should be coming to you shortly after XMAS.
We took some more stills of the shoot and after we release #3 there will be an out take installment as well. Stay tuned for "ASK ED THE HEAD #4" we have special guest coming in to visit Mr, Head. You're not going to want to miss this one.

Clearly he is evil, just look at his eyes.

A Digression

My friend Amber just to took up the cause in her blog "" to  ensure that someday auto-flush toilets will be available to all, not just the rich and lavatorially privileged, I support her fight as should all of you.

However, i do have my own horse in this fight. My own privy pariah, my water closet war.

The dreaded air hand dryer. Yes the one and the same.

For generations we have been given these "sanitary options" for drying our hands after a trip to the toidy. Wash your hands, soap em up good with pink ooze that looks like something from the X-Files. Then, when it is time dry those nice, clean and SANITARY hands you move over to the conveniently, wall mounted, hot air dryer. You don't want to touch it with your newly washed and SANITARY hands, so you hit with your fabric covered elbow and  you are off to the races. HOT AIR FLOWS FORTH.

Well yes, it is hot. No doubt about that. However i believe in my heart of hearts that you could stand there with your hands under that blower, rubbing them together gingerly as is suggested, and you will grow old, the paint will peel off the walls and you will still have two very damp hands. So what do you do?
You wipe them on your pants, which you could have just done originally and saved yourself one more disappointing encounter with the air dryers from hell.

But wait there is more.

Someone, I believe he was a rocket scientist or possible an aeronautics expert, has now developed a new blower. This one certainly does get your hands dry. Unfortunately it also takes you shirt, your pants, your hair and skin with it. It has the power of a jet engine, without the directionality, if it wasn't bolted to the wall with titanium hardware, the thing would surely take flight. It's not a hand dryer, its a restroom black hole.

There is never a happy medium and after all - isn't a happy medium what we all really want anyway?

Ed The Head - installments 2& 3

Entry 2.1

So yesterday we managed to bang out two web installments of "Ask Ed the Head". The usual cast of characters were there as well as an old favorite Erin Callahan (who can be seen as Maddie in Accidental Heroes and Molly in Chronicles of Bob) who has joined the team to pick up the mantle of Oola Galubi. She will also be playing the role of Oola in the webs series as well, opposite AMBER BENSON. The shoot went fairly smoothly after we spent a good bit of the morning getting the green screen and lighting just right, Mr. Head was his usual grumpy self. and Oola was splendid as usual. We have some behind the scenes photos and there will be some out takes as well.
Steve telling me something very important, and me not so much interetsed.

I heard you Ed, and no you can't go and tinkle.

Erin wishing she hadn't answered the phone when i called her to come and play.

Erin thinking how glad she is Ed is in the box.

Happy Oola

As you can see, we were all thrilled and no pineapples were injured in the making of this web series.
It's a whacky whacky world.

Comicon Day 4 - Wrap Up

Well it's done. After a good nights sleep, I can look back at NYCCC 2011 and say we had a great convention. We accomplished everything we set out to do and then some. We got the word out to bunch of people, made some new connections and re-connected with others. All in all we all had a good and exhausting time. Next year if all goes well we will have our own booth. Seems convention wandering is a young person's game and us old farts need reclyners.

Comicon Day 2

Entry 1.7
Another really great day. Met some really cool people and gave out a ton of Marie's postcards to a number of Buffy and Amber fans. Hopefully that will help the word spread. I had a great conversation with Eddie McCIintock from Warehouse 13. Great guy, really down to earth, We talked a bit about the show, and some other stuff.

 I have two podcast interviews scheduled for some time tomorrow and a Sci fi news website wants us to come and do an interview when the con is over.

The best news of the day, I finally had a chance to talk to Felicia Day, and we had great catching up "Nice to finally meet face to face" conversation, while 500 people behind me were waiting for autographs. We both decided we would like to work together on something, and are talking about doing a project together in the future. That was pretty cool.
I am exhausted and too tired to write more.
We might have some video to put up from the con tomorrow.
Keep watching.
Keep donating to the cause as well.
