The Birthday Mix

Hello friends. My 40 Posts In 40 Days Pledge fell apart in a Britney Spears kind of way, but there's still one more day left to post twenty more times! Britney can still be saved!

Fortunately, the main reasons I've been MIA are writing-related. Some updates...

*About a month ago, my writing partner and I were accepted into NBC's Writers Program, which has been absolutely wonderful but quite time-consuming. In a large nutshell, the program picks eight writing entities (this year, three writing teams and five solo writers) who are "on the verge" of success, and they invest time and resources into bettering us as writers and human beings. Not only do we get help specing a show via weekly group notes, the program also assigns each writer an executive mentor and show mentor (my writing partner and I are coupled with The Office, woot woot) to guide you through the soul-drowning waters of staffing season. It's all pretty awesome, I'm amazing, and everything I touch turns to sexual intercourse. I just realized I might be bragging, but really, this program is the bee's knees.

*Also, our amazing agent has been sending us out for many late night shows, which has kept us busy with submission packets. We have a HUGE meeting coming up next Monday, so please send out some good vibes that day. Especially if your name is God.

*We may or may not have some more feature news to report in addition to the SCI FI Channel movie we're working on. To be continued...

*And lastly, I was interviewed for a small little feature here (beware, there is an unnecessarily large picture of my face that may cause you to jump back in shock, something I am accustomed to). They cut my jokes, but hey, I fulfilled my lifelong dream of being in an online teeny-bopper magazine, so I can't complain.

Those are the the writing updates for now. On a personal note, I celebrated my 26th birthday a few weeks ago, on Oct. 2nd to be exact. Big thank you to the kind folks who remembered and left a comment. And, on Oct. 11th, Silly Pipe Dreams celebrated its second year of existence.

But this post isn't about making you feel guilty for forgetting the most important days of the calendar year. Rather, it's about celebrating all the upcoming birthdays that seem to be flooding my calendar via evites. So Libras and Scorpios, click below and enjoy a little playlist made just for you, happy birthday.

Hi Cap't!!

First, happy belated birthday! I feel terrible, awful, sick at heart, blue, and dastardly for not remembering your special day. I did, however, send you some tunes via email -- hope they'll help for your next TV review and music post.

Second, many congratulations on your acceptance into NBC's Writers Program! That is really awesome news, Sonny!

Thanks so much for the birthday mix!

Ditto with Sam and Megan... Libras all the way!
Congrats on everything Sonny, that's awesome! It really makes me think about changing majors... again. Does this mean you'll be able to give us some insight on the Office? heh. Thought I might as well ask.
Oh and thanks so much for the mix!

Don't know if you've caught tonight's "Chuck" yet, but I think you'll love the O.C.-mirroring moment Josh threw in there at the end. Delightful! :)

Thanks for birthday mix. You're right - a plethora of birthdays cluttering the calendar. Glad I could be a part of yours :)

Congrats on the writing domination, btw. When you have time, can you give us a bigger peak into the NBC Writer's Program?
