Catching Up

I'm playing catch-up after a week without the internet. Those of you in Canada will understand when I say that I was using Telus as my internet provider. I know. Dumb move. When the modem died, they said they would mail me a new one in 3 to 5 business days. I am now with a much faster and more stable internet provider. How fast is it? When you are sending me a message, I know what it will be before you have a chance to think it through.

Here are a few things for you to check out this weekend.

Cathryn Michon's Video Snax
Cathryn is engaged to my friend and colleague W. Bruce Cameron (I don't know what the W. stands for. I've just always thought it was 'Wild'.) She has launched My Video Snax at In her words, "I'm serving you delicious four minute mash-ups of hilarious internet videos, while a handsome shirtless man feeds me chocolate and agrees with everything I say. I love my job! I'm working overtime for you people!"

Blake Havard "Wanted To Believe You"
My friend Blake Havard is getting some much deserved airplay lately with his song Wanted To Believe You. Have a listen at

Tracy Beckerman Live-ish
I've watched my friend Tracy Beckerman grow as a writer and comedian over the last several years. Watch her on Mothers Day with Mo Rocca on CBS Sunday Morning this weekend. Here's a sneak preview of the best mother to come out of New Jersey since Carmella Soprano.

Where to See Me
I will be presenting two workshops, Funny You Should Write That, and Dealing WIth A Difficult Deadline at the Pacific Northwest Writers Association Summer Conference July 23 - 25, 2010. For more information about the conference go to
