Review of I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

First, a quick recap of my exposure to Tucker Max. At some point I visited his site, and read all of his stories in one sitting. He writes about his escapades, usually drunken sexual rampages, in such a way that someone who has never had a drink is still engaged. I'd check his blog once in a while when I was bored, but it wasn't until he started writing about the experience of creating a movie that I started reading every post habitually. He did a great job of explaining in layman's terms how a movie is made. Just as I enjoyed his drunken stories as a non-drinker, I enjoyed his posts about film making as a non-film-maker.

Tucker was gracious enough to let me stop by the set while filming, and also to give me tickets to the premiere in SF.

I went to the premiere with no idea what to expect. On one hand I'd read the movie blog, which shared audience reactions and screen testing results. They were overwhelmingly positive. I knew that Tucker was focused solely on making the best movie possible, and was determined enough to push for his vision.

Early On a Sunday Morning: Asian Recap

On Where Pianos Roam

Well then, it's been a couple of weeks since I submitted a proper post here on WPR.  I've been engaged in a good bit of travelling and performing as well as various odds and ends of late, but I have now returned to my regular blogging schedule.

In this absence, I've accumulated a good bit of stuff to blog about.  I wanted to take some time today to catch everyone up on what I've been doing behind the scenes .  .  .  .

On Mother's Day, I spent the afternoon with my Mom.  I cooked a decadent meal comprised of fresh tilapia with rice and fish sauce, and I BAKED A CAKE!!!  Well, a pound cake to be specific, but a cake nonetheless.

Not having an original recipe to work from, I used a store-bought mix and my Mom's brand new oven for the first time.  (I'm on the hunt for a great pound cake recipe if anyone happens to know where one can be found.)

Here was the final result!!
