Coloring Words

Somebody should swing by their local newsstand.

That’s because the January edition of Wired Magazine is on stands now, and features another back-page “Found: Artifacts From the Future” piece by yours truly. This month, I postulate what the crayons of the future might be like, which include everything from the global warming-inspired “Brown Sky” to the fad-tastic “iPod White.”

You can check out a scan of the article (which never replaces buying the actual thing) here.

Reporting Words

Today’s Hollywood Reporter spills the beans on one of my latest previously-secret projects:

Meanwhile, ABC has ordered a script for “The Box,” a one-hour drama focusing on a legal case that takes place over the course of one season. The project follows the 12 jury members, who are faced with deliberating a high-profile murder trial as they uncover truths about the case, their fellow jurors and themselves.

Michael MacLennan, whose credits include Showtime’s “Queer as Folk,” and Paul Davidson, author of such books as the recent “The Lost Blogs,” are writing. Fred Gerber (Fox’s “House”) is attached to direct.

Zadan, Meron, MacLennan and Gerber are executive producing, while Davidson is co-executive producing.

You can see the entire text of the article here.

Magazine Words on TV

The September issue of Wired Magazine is on stands now, and you know what that means.

In the new issue, I take a look at some of the best and some of the worst new Fall TV shows coming your way in the coming weeks. I was fortunate enough to see about 95% of all the new shows and was fortunate enough to see some of the true gems. And while not all my picks made it into the article (Let’s Rob Mick Jagger… and Kidnapped for example), pick up a copy and take a look at some of the good ones.

Or, you could always be the cheap bastard you are and look at it here.

Words on DVD

Word may or may not have gotten to you that the “bloggers reading on stage for charity” show Subject Line Here was a smashing success. It went so well, in fact, that a DVD version of the entire show is now available for order at the aforementioned website until July 15th.

In the meantime, for those unable to attend (but still interested in seeing yours truly on stage), I will now provide to you the links that make it possible to view my performances.

Demand My Words

Did you want me to come to your city and speak and discuss my new book The Lost Blogs while signing your book and making you laugh…but it just didn’t happen?

Maybe I didn’t know you wanted me there.

That’s why I’ve set up a page over at Eventful where you can “demand my words” in your hometown. All you have to do is click on the glorious “demand it” button above, enter your city, and when the groundswell becomes hard to ignore…I’ll show up.

Seriously. I totally will. Try me.
