Let's all wish the big guy a Happy Birthday today. Rather then say his age, I'll just tell ya that he was born in 1962 and let you do the math. ;)
So, in keeping with Chuck's spirit; rather then make this thread all about him.... (after all, how much fun is it really seeing a bunch of people just type the words 'Happy Birthday'?) let's instead hear you describe the best birthday gift you ever received.
Here's a listing of the features that are included with the DVD:
Please use this thread if you want to post a review about the DVD. Thanks!
By nature of the beast and by his own admissions, Mike Birbiglia does not fill the mold of stereotypical class clown. Far from a gregarious powerhouse of wild humor, the manner in which the slightly reserved comic delivers a line is less focused on drawing a short unison laugh from the crowd; rather, he weaves the line into a string of strange and dreamy observations about the world that leave his audience not only rolling on the floor but highly engaged.
Okay, I think my staff and I all have "eyes-bugging-out-of-our-skulls" syndrome. It's a rare condition. It afflicts those who have been working around the clock to launch a massive new version of an expansive author website.
I won't spend too long on a history lesson because you're all probably itching to explore the new site. What I will do though, is thank you all for your patience. Believe it or not, this site really is over a year in the making. Many of the features and options you are now being presented with, we fought tooth and nail to get into our 2008 version. But a series of bad circumstances just led us to a wall. And rather then get to build upon that version of the site, it soon became all about weathering the storm and steering you all to safety.
Today, that storm has cleared. So without further ado, here are your new features:
New Writer's Workshop
Okay, digest that all in while you explore the site. 2009 is going to kick ass!
Greetings, all! 2009 is officially underway, so I wanted to take a little more time to hone down and elaborate on Chuck's wonderful post from January 2nd. There's a lot to digest there, and while Chuck got to the meat and potatoes of it, he didn't quite explain all the other amazing things that were featured on the dish.
Last night our writers group met at Suzy’s house, and we took turns announcing what we’d accomplish with our writing in the coming year. After a decade of this ritual it’s too easy to simply resolve to complete a current project, then begin and complete another. Something feels a bit automatic, and that robs the process of any value.
