Some good things happened to good people whilst I was on a break, and I missed noting them on the blog.

So here tis:

My friend Ian’s film LA BLUES is now available on DVD, so please add it to your queue now! More info here L.A. BLUES DVD RELEASE on Ian’s blog, and in addition, Ian has found himself a father again, so stop by and wish him the best!

My friend Lou Carbonneau appeared on Law & Order two weeks ago, in Jesse Martins last episode, in a great part. He kicked major ass, and also landed a dream role in a film (can’t say more than that). Let’s hear for Lou!

Blogger and Playwright Matthew Freeman has been getting rave reviews (including the Times) for his latest play, WHEN IS A CLOCK, so you should go see it but you gotta act fast because this is the Final Week of Performances for When is a Clock and at the very least, go to his blog and congratulate him.

Congratulations, dude!

My buddy Adam Rothenberg’s new movie TENNESSEE premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and kicked major ass. He rocked it, folks, rocked it old school, too.

My playwright mentor, Naomi Wallace, had a new show premiere at the Public Theatre. It’s called FEVER CHART and it’s still running. Please attend, if you can. And luckily for me, she was in town and we got to see each other.

My fellow playwright James has a show opening called COLORFUL WORLD that looks totally and completely awesome . . . it’s opening like, any minute now, go to his blog for info and see the show. I’m a big fan of James.

I’m sad to say I don’t get out much these days to see plays or movies, the baby and the writing schedule tends to eat up the minutes and hours like you wouldn’t believe (I’m not even really following the NBA Finals, and if not for DVR, wouldn’t know what was happening on LOST or THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER, which is very unlike me) so if I missed your show or event, please forgive me.

And if you had anything really cool happen to you that deserves Kudos, please leave it in the comments and let me know, because I’m sure I’m missing some worthy achievements, shout it out, folks!

Over the blogging break, there was a private reading of a screenplay I’ve written and for awhile it looked like I wasn’t going to be able to attend it, then at the last minute time opened up and was able to go.

It went very well and the folks behind it assembled a talented killer cast. Even though it wasn’t a public reading, I wanted to list the people involved because they were so great.
