The Pies That Bind

September 23, 2008

This post has zilch, zip, nada to do with erotica, or even with writing, for that matter, but... well... I... oh, just go ahead and read it anyway, jeez.

Yesterday, I was an extra on the Food Network show, Throwdown with Bobby Flay. Food Network filmed at a pizzeria I frequent. The owner of the restaurant demonstrated the pizza-making process, although I couldn't really see what was going on and thus got bored very quickly. But I was treated to plenty of complimentary grub and was privileged to be in the presence of the "very special guest," Mr. Stephanie March, a.k.a. Bobby Flay. All of a sudden, women started shrieking, and at first I thought that the guy was some sort of jock or something. Then a dude in a bear costume and Bears jersey strolled in. Dig the crazy dancing bear, I thought, because I've been watching way too much I Love Lucy lately.

The episode will air on December 21.

It's in the Bag

September 8, 2008

I had an awesome experience in DC over Labor Day weekend. I was quite pleased with the casting and presentation of my play in the Seventh Annual Page-to-Stage Festival at the Kennedy Center. The reading and the feedback generated from it will be a tremendous help in terms of revisions.

In other news, I have a work of flash fiction (not erotic) featured in femeninete, a Washington-based print zine published by the Grrrl Group. My piece, entitled "Eviction Notice," is included in the "Mixed Bag" issue. I'm thrilled with the layout of the story. It looks fantastic. To learn more about the publication and its publishers, check out this interview or that interview. To order "Mixed Bag," visit the Grrrl Group's MySpace page or contact them via e-mail: femeninete [at] yahoo [dot] com.
