Do NOT write a crock of shit.

Not that I think Mamet always knocks it out of the park but the point of the letter:

'Be interesting, don't suck"

Should be tattooed onto every writers (TV or otherwise) arm.

Note: When taking a gal out for a night on the town, make sure she doesn't find a random can of spinach that must have fallen out of your grocery bag from the last time you went shopping. This will inevitably open up a string of awkward questions and a debate over whether or not faced with a cataclysmic earthquake trapping you in your car, could you force said can open in order to stay alive.*

*The answer being yes!

Something new

Not that I've ever taken the time to update this on a regular basis but I've decided to start a second blog devoted simply to movies. There's a ton of random crap I'd love to post but that never seemed a nice fit alongside a memorial to my deceased grandfather or a message regarding a buddies cancer surgery. There are days I want to talk about Inseminoid damn it!

"Outer space is expecting the unexpected!"

My friends and I have been doing WTF Movie Night for a while now and the new blog is for them (and everyone reading this)

Kick in the junk

So a friend went in for cancer surgery this morning. They turned 30 earlier this year, sheesh, has it come to this?

-Friends getting married. Check
-Friends having kids. Check.
-Friends my age getting cancer. Check.

On paper, everything is ok, obviously with cancer and surgery one can never be 100% sure but of all places to get it, the area is treatable. In a lot of cases chemo isn't even necessary. Obviously my fingers are crossed and I hope to get a text from them soon giving a thumbs up.

UPDATE: Sarcastic text proves they're ok. Let's hope the Big C has vacated for good.

We need a new agent

While it's true that I, Greg C. Bellavia, need an agent I'm actually referring to Italians because as far as holidays go we got the shaft. When it comes to all inclusive holidays I would not even rate us on the board next to the reigning champ St. Patrick's Day or the runners up Cinco De Mayo or Oktoberfest.

We have no one to blame but ourselves, I just find it hard to believe we can't do better than Columbus Day.
