have it your way, baby!

have we got a deal for you!!
first of all, a big thanks to those of you who have downloaded "conversion" from vimeo! we've been
thrilled to see that so many people have been interested in watching our little film that could.

recently, vimeo has made some changes to their "on demand" service and we've decided to adjust the settings for "conversion" accordingly. here's the deal:

up until this week, the video on demand service only allowed for paid streaming. so far $5usd, you could were purchasing a feed that remained active for six months. within those months, you could watch the movie as many times as you could possibly imagine, until you set some kind of bizarre world record for number of times watching "conversion". [note :: it would be a pretty significant number of times to compete with dom, who can recite the entire script, with sound effects, backward.]

but now, things be different. now, vimeo have a download option. and we've decided to take advantage of that.

you will still be able to stream if you'd prefer not to clutter up your hard drive or make a lifetime commitment to loving us. it will still cost $5, but from now on, the stream will only remain active for three months. to all those of you who have purchased a stream already, of course, it will remain active for the full six months you were guaranteed. so basically, if you were among the first to buy in, you get three bonus months. [call now and we'll also include this wonderful 100% cruelty-free cat hair sleep mask!! you just pay extra shipping and handling!] [you should probably take your meds now. -ed.]

however, if you'd rather not bother with a temporary arrangement and would like to welcome "conversion" into your home for the long haul, you can now download the film for $10. no cut off date, no having to renew. for just $10, it's yours forever.

once again, the link to make the purchase is right here. operators are standing by.

[awesome conversion shamwow imagery by dom, of course.]

write brain

i was talking to a friend of mine about coffee, specifically about our mutual need for coffee, yesterday and, literally as i was in the middle of a thought, an idea occurred to me that i felt like i had to note. so there i am, scribbling a note to myself that was really just a word salad of related terms, which i later transformed into a weird but more comprehensible note that i could refer to later. [i don't want another beatriz coca situation on my hands.] i feel like this idea isn't a story on its own, but something that i could incorporate into a larger project, which is good, because i have a few of those.

now, of course, i need to sit down and do research on this, because it's become terribly important to me that the details of this weird little idea that i'm planning on incorporating into a larger thing be totally plausible, even though no one but me is ever going to care. i'm increasingly convinced that the goal of every writer is to find someone who will t…

presidenting is hard :: these people are not your friends

hello mr. president! a while back, i promised that i would periodically be giving you some advice on how to do your job, since you seem a little unclear on how everything works. i didn't mean to go so long between missives, but the fact is that i've been busy and you're administration has been in overdrive giving me things to write about. what i've realised is that many of those things are ones i can't help you with: if you or anyone in your immediate circle worked with russians to compromise the 2016 election, that shit is done. robert mueller is going to find that out, because he's the kind of person who looks like the theme from dragnet just automatically starts playing every time he enters a room. so that's your problem. i'm just here to talk to you about what you can do now that you are, by law, the president. because, while chief detective mueller is doing his thing, we all need to live with your decisions. i'm even less happy about that than…

luck of the irish?

i like st. patrick's day. i like the fact that there is a holiday that celebrates celtic-ness and drunkeness at once (you could argue they were pretty close to begin with). in fact, it's probably second only to halloween as my favourite publicly recognised holiday.

so every year, i have to have my little ritual and that ritual involves visiting a pub and partaking of the cheer. i've made attempts at watching parades in various cities, but i've more recently given up that practice because a) eight out of ten times, it's freezing cold and/ or snowing in canada on march 17th and b) the parades seem to consist entirely of trucks carrying people who are as drunk as i would be, if i weren't freezing my tush off watching them. so i've backed off the parade in recent years.

however, a visit to the pub, the longer the better, is still an important thing for me.

next year, however, i'm going to have to plan things a little better.

first of all, i didn't …
