Chicago Marathon, Oct 7, along with Graham Hallen. And here's a little video explaining the group I'm trying to raise money for, World Vision. I'll have a home page that will allow you to donate to the cause if you like, coming soon.
Some of you who have seen my Facebook profile picture might have wondered: what's the deal with the floppy orange hat? Well I can finally let you know that it was an outfit for a video I did for a SHYG student, Brett Williams. It's a take-off on the "Made" TV show on MTV, and co-stars the incomparable Cody Terrill. And the video is now available on YouTube, and here on my blog. It's presented in several parts. I'll put the first on this page, and you can check out the others by clicking "Continue Reading." Enjoy.
The trailer is out for Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, a new movie written and directed by Zach Helm, who graduated a year behind me at DePaul, and who also wrote Stranger Than Fiction with Will Ferrell. It stars Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, and Jason Bateman, and sounds like a cross between Pee Wee's Big Adventure and Willy Wonka. It looks like a fun movie for kids that adults should enjoy as well. It comes out November 16th.
