There are two of us here: Kent M. Beeson (aka Urban Shockah) bio, and Martin McClellan (aka Burley Grymz) bio.

The Teen Movie Pitch Generator might give us some ideas while we slog through the finer points of pitching.

I want to re-do mine, but would like some feedback first, sir, when you have time. Until then, my Teen Movie Pitch is “Tomcats” meets “Ghandi” meets “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” with a little bit of “Erin Brockovich.”

Re: Jeeeeeeem!

Is it okay to say that I usually end up going over to RogerEbert.com for Mr. Emerson's Scanners rather than Mr. Ebert's reviews? (Well, the Answer Man, too.) I mean, he named his column after a David Cronenberg movie! How cool is that?

The new, "real" blog is looking pretty cool, too. Just wished he'd have comments enabled, although I can understand why he'd demur -- it's not a decision taken lightly. (Not everyone can be a Matt Zoller Seitz -- that is, be a journalist, but embrace the instant feedback, as well as give and take, that comments provide. Just ask the Washington Post.)


Jeeeeeeem!

I really like Roger Ebert. He may be a populist critic, but he's always unpredictable, and I think often has good insights.

So, around here, we were thrilled when the new RogerEbert.com launched, and especially because it was edited by the way-cool Jim Emerson (whom my better half worked with--or in the same building at least--at Microsoft). He wrote a lot of great stuff on the Roger Ebert site, but the page was a bit confusing in the outer shell of RogerEbert.com, and also felt more like a blog than a column, but looked like a column more than a blog--especially since there wasn't even an rss feed.

All that changes today--Jim has a full-on blog at the Chicago Sun Times, now totally separate from the RogerEbert.com domain. I'm thrilled, and immediately added him to my feed reader (the awesome NetNewsWire, created by Seattle man Brent Simmons ).

Jim has especially big internet street cred right now--even Kottke links to him. Go Jim go!

  • Vegan donuts? Sounds awful, doesn't it? Well, in the case of Mighty O, you'd be dead wrong. These are incredibly moist and delicious, and compared to most donuts, relatively healthy (no trans fat!) They're also absolutely gorgeous -- the pictures on the website aint lyin. Cool off-the-wall flavors as well: French Toast, Mocha, and Chocolate Peppermint, to name a few.
