Sept 12 – Policewoman Day

12 Sep

This is a tribute to the greatest police woman TV has ever produced: Debra Morgan, sister of the greatest TV character ever: Dexter. I know I know that’s debatable, but what’s not debatable is Debra’s amazing command of the English language and her great police work. Here are two great vids to prove it. 

So sad this show is ending, but there are loose rumours of a possible spinoff with Deb.

Mar 26 – Make Up Your Own Holiday Day

26 Mar

Well the Mayor of Boston replied and said he couldn’t make time for me today to make it National Gabriel Day, so instead I’ve declared it National Jack Bauer Day in honor of finally finishing the series 24. One of the greatest TV shows of all time. 

Feb 6 – Lame Duck Day

6 Feb

Today actually has nothing to do with ducks. It’s more of a figure of speech. Today is actually based on the 20th Amendment, which establishes the protocol for when the new president steps in and the old one steps down. That succession period when the old one knows his time is soon to be up is when he may start acting like a Lame Duck. 

But actual ducks are much cooler and since this is a re-election year and there are no successors, I’ll celebrate a different way. About 6 months ago, we shot some online videos for U.S. Cellular about shady tricks wireless companies pull. One of them was called the Lame Duck, written by my friend Jack Collier. 

This was the first of nine videos we shot in one day. Starting with a taxidermy duck is a surefire way to get going in the morning. The actor in those spots is Tim Baltz. A great improv guy who works at Second City in Chicago. Highly recommend going to see him or anyone else in that theater. Less coffee. More lame duck. Let’s get some legislation going.
