Had a meeting with B today, and it was wonderful. Here are a few snaps
|Just a light lunch for me! Chicken and Waffles.|
I always love our meetings. Here are a few reasons why:
1. B is really fun to be around and we have a good connection
2. We eat really good food
3. We always feel motivated after we discuss the goings-on of tinysuperstars
All is well with both of us. B is getting ready to go to Vegas and will be moving at the end of the month. I have about 25 shows scheduled in the next month and am working on a few other projects so....we are just taking it day by day. I wish we had more time for the film--mostly because it is so fun and I like working together. I'll take what I can get though.
Ok--for those of you who have not heard--we are frickin funded. We are 108% funded to be exact. Thank you all so very much for backing this project. We still have 9 days left and would LOVE to hit $5,000 if we can--not because we are selfish but because shit is expensive. It's more expensive than we thought it would be. If you haven't helped us already or would like to donate again which is always fun--please do. Maybe you know someone who would like to help? Pass this on. $600 in 9 days would be a godsend. True story. Here is the link:
BE A BACKER ON TEEJ and B's BRILLIANT PROJECT
Recently a few students from Chapman University (where I used to teach) made a short documentary about me, my comedy, and my love for GLEE for a class. This is a lil taste of TJ for those of you who don't know anything about me. It's fun. This is of course not "our" documentary because we haven't finished it yet. B's movie is scheduled to be out by the end of the year and will be a feature length film. I decided to show this class film to give you an idea of who/what B is working with. It's 10 minutes long. Enjoy: Chapman Students Documentary on TJ
Quick shout out to Mary Najour--she always emails me after the posts but cannot figure out how to leave a comment. I think that is hilarious. I think one just needs to hit leave a comment and then type it in, but I could be wrong. I hope she doesn't figure out how though because I love her emails. Just giving B's mom a hard time. Anyone coming to The Brass Rail show on the 31st can meet Mary, and anyone coming to the Iowa show in June can meet Janice (my mom) so there ya go.
I'm ordering shirts tomorrow that say tinysuperstars. Your Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza shopping is done. Many of our donors will be receiving free ones so--jump on that bandwagon OR you'll have to buy one when they arrive. B also wants me to make some that say Team TJ--we will see about that one.
Ok--that is all I have for today. I will be performing on the 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th 29th, 30th, 31, 1, 2, 5, 6, etc. Check yesterday's post for dates and times. I'm still working on the Iowa show ticket stuff. If anyone who lives in Cedar Falls can help me out by going down there and demanding to see Scotty--that would be awesome. I am very excited about the Iowa show but the people at the venue are horrible communicators. They wouldn't pass my class--that's for sure.
Bridget WILL be posting tomorrow.
Two conversations that B and I had today that made me feel old.
TJ "I graduated from high school 23 years ago today."
B "I was one and a half years old."
TJ "When you guys fly into Iowa you can just rent a car."
B "None of us are 25."
Let it process. Yes--it's true. The good thing about our age difference is that our project has multigenerational viewpoints. The bad thing is that by the time it's a classic--B will be the only one alive to take all the credit.
Send us both love this week. We appreciate your support. Now if I can just get Bridget to bake me some cupcakes. Perhaps me blogging for her today will help in that effort. I'll be back on Wednesday to discuss the following: Ellen, why black men love me, and the grant I am trying to write. TJ
