I think every single story idea I’ve ever had has been born in the shower. There’s just something about being naked and wet that activates the story-telling part of the brain. I think because it’s the same part that would have to come up with reasonable excuses if you were caught naked and wet anywhere but the shower.
I’ve been writing and doing a bunch of stuff lately to promote my new book (out two weeks from today holy shit) and also because it’s my job. Here are a bunch of links to things, plus some additional thoughts of mine, so it doesn’t JUST feel like a shameless bit of self-promotion.
The Bryan Callen Podcast: Bryan Callen (Mad TV, The Hangover, How I Met Your Mother) had me on his podcast, it was a blast and I didn’t call him “Bilson” once even though I super wanted to the whole time. I had such a good time doing this, all the laughs that happen are genuine and I’ll hopefully come back and shoot the shit with those guys again in the future.
4 Things Movies Always Get Wrong About Parties: I wrote this as part of a sponsored campaign for BURNETT’S PINK LEMONADE FLAVORED VODKA, which is a thing we have to do on the site occasionally. Brands give us money and we write columns that are vaguely related to their campaign, and that’s why we don’t have to charge readers for coming to the site. On the spectrum of brands, Burnett was pretty cool (by which I mean they didn’t give a lot of notes and let me use however many fuck-words I wanted) and I’d personally give them a whole lot of business if Pink Lemonade-flavored vodka didn’t sound just absolutely disgusting to me.
6 Myths You Believe About the Founding of America: I wrote and am in this video about America. I wore a red-white-and-blue shirt because AMERICA.
4 Insane Behind-the-Scenes Details About Filming a Sex Scene: I wrote and am in this video about Hollywood sex scenes. I wore that same red-white-and-blue shirt because LAUNDRY DAY.
I’ll be popping in to promote some other weird things in the future but until then here’s all this bullshit.
