Gonna be in Austin tomorrow? Wanna hear me cuss immoderately?

Well, come on up and scissor-kick me in the junk while I'm eating, then.


Yeah, not really, though.

Hey -- so, let's get this much out of the way: This is a plug. All right? I'm sorry. These things happen. I've accepted it. Give it a moment; you might find that you can, too. If so, please proceed.

Got it? Top shelf. Let's move forth.

So, I've got a filmmaker buddy, see, and that filmmaker buddy is finishing up the filmmaking track at UT, and, recently, while in that filmmaking track, he made a film. A short one. A fun one, I think, though I haven't seen it yet. About a meek, comic-book-loving valet who gets a shot at being a hero. By going after a heavy who steals some foul-mouthed jerkface's car.

See this? Well, the fairer-haired fella in it -- the one with the black shirt -- he's the valet. He's a nice guy. (The actor is.) (Well, and so's the valet.) So, yeah, I know the director. Yeah, I know the writer. And, to top it off, I'm the jerkface. Because, perhaps against his better judgment, dude put me in his movie.

So, see? That's a plug-and-a-half. Not that I particularly intend for anyone reading this to come watch me ham it up and make an ass of myself -- you can cover your eyes during those portions -- but if you're bored in Austin and fancy some student films, then, by all means.

Film's called Wrong Ticket, and it's part of the UT student-film showcase.
