The latest episode of JON DAVIS GETS A SEX ROBOT IS OUT and it’s…surprisingly heartwarming. If you have a soul, that is. If you don’t, you probably are a robot, which makes this perfect for you to watch anyway.
The finale of the last stop of the @harmontown tour at The Egyptian Theater in LA. With Bobcat Goldthwait.
The pilot for LEARNING TOWN, a great new comedy musical web series from @joshacagan & @paulandstorm. Josh Cagan is, in full disclosure, a friend, but also one of the funniest human beings I know. He’s one of the minds behind the upcoming JON DAVIS GETS A SEX ROBOT (which will blow your effing mind), so he’s my frontrunner for this year’s king of YouTube comedy.

HALO web movie by Neill Blomkamp.
Abhay Khosla (aka TwistStreet) wrote in response to by BSG post: “There was a Halo webseries— I watched some of it because I thought Fincher had something to do with it (he didn’t). It’s VERY bsg influenced, but with Halo-people. Wasn’t my bag but they’d spent some money on it.”
I THINK this is what you’re talking about, a tie-in to the underrated HALO: ODST (about the ordinary troops, not the super-powered Master Chief dudes). It’s not directed Fincher, but District 9’s Neill Blomkamp. Who I think was supposed to direct a HALO movie produced by Peter Jackson. I remember being blown away by this at the time, and wishing that they’d actually gone ahead with a feature. I’d rather Blomkamp direct the next Star Wars film, or better yet, another original film.
AMAZING Star Wars fan anime (h/t @aaron_sparrow). Yes, I’ve had this posted before but it keeps getting taken down by the user. Enjoy this one, via screencrush.com while it lasts.
IT HAS BEGUN: BANANAPOCALYPSE
A video written by my friend Jonathan Davis along with my other friends at the Job Factory (Matt Allen, Josh A. Cagan, Rob McKittrick and Caleb Wilson) and directed by Justin Lin. It’s for the YOMYOMF (You Offend Me, You Offend My Family ) “Asian Pop Culture” YouTube channel, which will soon host Jon’s show “Jonathan Davis Gets a Sex Robot”.
I’ve mentioned before that, in addition to writing, I also teach writing for The Writers Boot Camp. I read an insane number of scripts a year, but two have stood out as particularly brilliant. One involved an action-thriller about a one-armed CIA agent on the run, the other a true story about filmmaker kidnapped by Kim Jong Il and forced to make monster films for him. Both were riveting, intense and darkly funny. And both were written by one of my favorite former students, Ashley Perryman Quach.
(Ashley is also, as it turns out, a supremely talented cartoonist. Check out her webcomic "Sassquach".)
Along with director Robyn Dettman, Ashley is making a short film called “Appleseeds”, about an abducted child bride on the day of her planned escape. If it’s anything like everything I’ve read from her, you’re going to be unable to tear your eyes from the screen.
Ashley’s funding the movie through indiegogo, a Kickstarter-like site, and as I right this is about 1/5 towards her goal. She’s offering some great perks, including downloads of the film, hand-drawn digital postcards and even an illustrated guide to making salted caramel madeleines.
There are also plans to screen the film to help raise money for womens shelters.
