How much do panhandlers really make? Can you possibly make a living at this? How much of a difference does a funny sign make? Will people give to a guy in a banana suit? Does every sign have to say "God Bless?" Important questions. I aim to find the answers. Give me a dollar. God Bless.

"Why Lie? I Need A Drink" On Late, Late TV

Why Lie? I Need A Drink will be on television all over the US at 2:30am, EST. Now obviously I'd have been stoked to get prime time because it would better help me afford my out of control espresso habit but I'm kind of tickled to be on in the wee hours.

When I was a kid my first experiences staying up really late and getting to know those amazing hours when everyone else was sleeping involved watching tons of really strange television with my older brother Edward.

Did you know there were Blondie and Dagwood movies based on the comic strip? Did you know that Charlie Chan movies rule! From vintage movies and tv shows long forgotten, to strange indie films, to music shows that ran seemingly all night and introduced me to bands, new and old, that I wasn't hearing on the radio, I fell in love with late night/early morning TV. Edward taught me how to cook a hot dog on a fork over the stove quick enough to get it done durring the commerical breaks. The secret was in not worrying about burning it. Hot dogs taste good burnt.This in turn taught me about heart burn and also fork burns. I learned the joy of sleep deprivation and I fell in love with night. It was far too good to sleep through any more. There was a whole world of bizarre culture that wasn't being shoved down my throat but was instead slightly hidden on the other side of bed time waiting for me to find it.

I'm now part of that culture. I hope some kid sees my movie and it blows his mind a little. Most likely though there'll probably just be a lot of  "Shit, they sure are gay out there in California." Oh well.

Here's a list of the cities that are guaranteed to play my film. If your city's not on the list they still might run it. To find out or to get channel information, check your local listings.

Fan Art

A drawing of me in action panhandling in my Banana suit. Drawn for me by Trillian who was lucky enough to witness my panhandling powers in person. I pitty any kid who has to be raised by the kind of people who would name their kid after a Dr. Who character but I believe she is turning out alright, no doubt in large part thanks to my influence.

Booking Screenings and such

So, we have a few more screenings pending and will make details available soon. Look for college bookings, some art galleries and of course independent movie theaters.

If you'd like to book the film, please let us know. Contact information here.

On the DVD front, we are talking to three different distributors, but we'll holding off on signing a deal until we're satisfied that we've done enough screenings. We really like doing screenings. Seeing a movie in a theater or at least in a room full of strangers is way more fun than watching one at home in your living room.

That all the news for now. More soon.
