Nostalgia Theater Podcast: Thirty Years of <i>Stand By Me</i>!
Huffington Post - about 2 months
For the final Nostalgia Theater show of 2016, I'm joined by standup comedian (and avowed Corey Feldman fan) Zahra Noorbakhsh, host of the hilarious #GoodMuslimBadMuslim Podcast, for a fun and freewheeling conversation celebrating the thirty year anniversary of the classic coming-of-age tale Stand By Me, directed by Rob Reiner and based on a novella by Stephen King. The film stars Wil Wheaton, Feldman, Jerry O'Connell, and the late River Phoenix, and in addition to being a formative experience for us both many years ago, it also ended up sparking a fascinating discussion right now about friendship, parenting, and the passage of time. There's lots of insights and lots of laughs to be had as we close out the year, and you can listen to it at the embed below, or subscribe at iTunes, Stitcher Radio, TuneIn Radio, or Google Play (and remember to leave a review!).

13 Celebrity Dads Who Are Hilariously Candid About Fatherhood On Social Media
Huffington Post - 8 months
Being a dad is a hard job. Dads love us, but they also have to take care of us and, at times, lose sleep over us. And occasionally the only thing that makes that exhausting job a little easier is a good sense of humor. Because if you can’t laugh about having to dress up in a giant Winnie the Pooh onesie in order to bring your kid trick-or-treating, what can you do? In honor of Father's Day, we’re giving a little shoutout to these celebrity dads who aren't afraid to get real about fatherhood on social media:   Dax Shepard Me: "Sorry I'm late.

Podcast Reviews: <i>Respect The Process</i> and <i>Allegedly</i>
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Even though Respect The Process is a podcast primarily aimed at the world of making commercials, hosted by Jordan Brady, a renowned commercial director, it can't help but be funny. Brady is a former standup comedian -- still practicing, as seen in his 2013 documentary I Am Road Comic -- and his recent guest, Wayne Federman, a national headliner who, not coincidentally, starred in the aforementioned film. (In the early days of their comedy careers, Brady and Federman used to tour together.) Federman also co-hosts the Human Conversation podcast. Federman is on the show to talk specifically about How To Book National Commercials, and they talk a bit about the tricks and tips he's used to land spots such as the TV commercial for Geico Insurance in which he's playing poker with Kenny Rogers. Many of Federman's commercial appearances can be seen on his self-posted five-minute "mega-reel": Because of the focus of this podcast, there also tends to be a bit of tech talk. In this ...

First Nighter: 'Living on Love' Proves Insufficient, Even With Renée Fleming
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
What do you get when you cross Noel Coward's Private Lives with the Cole Porter-Samuel Spewack-Bella Spewack Kiss Me, Kate? You get cross. That's what you get. You get especially cross if what you get is Joe DiPietro's Living on Love at the Longacre, which he's based on Garson Kanin's 1985 play, Peccadillo. Never mind that it's directed by Kathleen Marshall who choreographed the last, and top-flight, Kiss Me, Kate revival and that it represents what may be the start of Renée Fleming's full transition from the opera stage to the legit stage. Never mind that against heavy odds the always amusing Douglas Sills is once again extremely entertaining as a narcissistic maestro, who -like most (all?) maestros -- insists on being addressed as maestro. I admit to not having seen Kanin's version, which played a few towns back then with Christopher Plummer and Glynis Johns heading the cast, but which never made it to Broadway. But it sounds as if DiPietro hasn't strayed too far from a plot so ...

12 Delightful Baby Names For Spring Babies
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
If you're expecting a spring baby, consider choosing a baby name that celebrates the season. Here are 12 unique springtime names -- none of which rank in the U.S. Top 500 -- that would be great for a March, April, or May baby . Vale Savannah Guthrie chose this poetic word meaning valley for her firstborn in 2014. Vale is a gender-neutral choice that works equally well for a boy or a girl, as a first or a middle. It’s a tailored possibility with a subtle tie to the outdoors, and that vibrant letter V. Vale barely registers as a baby name in the US, but after the arrival of Savannah’s daughter, that’s sure to change. Spelled Vail, it’s equally outdoorsy, but more of a winter name, as in the storied Colorado ski resort. Marigold "Downton Abbey" added a member of the Crawley family this season, Edith’s secret daughter Marigold. No word on why Edith chose the lovely botanical name, but here’s a theory. Marigolds can flourish in poor soil, hinting at the adversity faced by ...
