I got locked in a minor dude-cycle in this one, but that’s what happens when I’m booing from a moving vehicle full of half-pints.

New Year’s Maintenance Notes

4 Jan

I haven’t been posting any Functional Friday info lately, mostly due to baby and holiday madness.

I haven’t been useless though, I’ve been attempting to putty in the stray moments with writing, a process which is actually going fairly well. I’ve had to toss the idea of the serial as it stood – I still believe it’s a great idea, but I don’t think I have enough ignition-point eyeballs to make it work. If I happen to get some people clustered around me who care from the get go it might fly, but without that support it might just come across as too messy to get into.

I still have plans to generate some kind of serial project, just not the one I’ve been working at the last couple of months. More info on this when my brain provides some.

In the mean time I’ve been working on another piece, lets call it Project: Lukas & Nan, and it’s chugging along nicely. A bit pulpy, but sometimes that’s how I like it. It’s approximately 2.5% done. That may not sound like much, but Rome, yadda yadda.

(Also, Jessica May has an interesting theory about Tiger Woods and his Dad, if she ever gets around to posting it.)

Vince Offer – The Slap Chop Guy

5 Nov

I realize I’m kicking around the bowels of TV-commercialism a bit, but it reminded me that I needed to look into something; I’ve been getting funny looks when I imply the “Stop having a boring tuna, stop having a boring life.” guy has a name beyond Vince – part of the problem was that I couldn’t recall his show-surname, I just knew it was something like “Vince Sales” or “Vince Crapyouwannabuy”.

Now, thanks to wikipedia, my memory is refreshed:

OfferVinceShlomi (born April 25, 1964 in Haifa, Israel) also known as Vince Offer or the ShamWow! Guy, is a writer, director, and comedian widely known as the owner and pitchman of two sold-on-TV products: ShamWow! absorbent towels and the Slap Chop food chopper.


Almost more interestingly: Vince Offer is apparently a failed comedian. While hawking his unsellable film, The Underground Comedy Movie, he accidentally stumbled into the fact that people will buy anything at 3 in the morning.

Comedy movie? Well – sort of:
