"Sunny": The Next Frontier

I promise the next post after this will be non-Sunny related and chock-full of mp3s. Pinky swear.

(Have you ever wondered who the eff started the pinky swear? What an incredibly strange way of establishing trust. I mean, I get the interlocking, a binding promise, etc, etc, but why the pinky? I need answers now.)

In the meantime, check out this Variety article about a new pilot the Sunny guys (Rob, Charlie and Glenn), just sold to Fox. It's called Boldly Going Nowhere, and it'll be a "single-camera half-hour...set in the future and focused on the mundane world of a spaceship captain when he's not on a mission."

The show idea came from the writers' assistant on It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Adam Stein, who is a super cool dude, and at a very young age, will have a "written and created by" credit under his belt. Huge congrats!

And in other news, Hulu.com opened to the public this week. Have you guys checked it out? The clip "cropping" feature is nifty. I'm currently watching old Dana Carvey Show episodes, you should too. It boasted maybe the most insanely talented writing staff ever: Dana Carvey, Louis C.K., Steve Carell, Dave Chappelle, Stephen Colbert, Robert Smigel, Spike Feresten, and freaking Charlie Kaufman, just to name a few.

Anyhooo, catch me up on your life in the comments!

I skimmed through some of Dana Carvey, precisely because of Colbert et al., but found it to have been canceled for good reason.

I wish I could check out Hulu, but I'm currently studying abroad, and nothing like that works over here. =( I'm very tired of the 'sorry, but this service is not available in your current country' notice. Thus, haven't been able to enjoy any of this It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia lovefest.

I've been heavily anticipating Hulu for months! Making "Always Sunny" available at my whim is just icing on the cake!

Congrats on the new job and livin' the dream, man! Those guys are all sorts of hilarious.

My question is: Who will the Captain be??? My money is on Charlie.

I wonder if Boldly Going Nowhere will be set in this this house? http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/homestyle/03/14/flying.saucer.house.ap/index.html

I read the article on CNN the other day, thought of your blog, and decided to share. :)

Hey, unrelated to your post (congratulations on it all, by the way), I was wondering if you knew where I could find The Script's "We Try"? It's not on ITunes and I can't find it anywhere else!

I LOVE It's Always Sunny. We've tried to get friends on the Sunny bandwagon but so far the humor has been...too funny for them, as far as we can figure out. Too "we say the things everyone is thinking but doesn't dare say".

Congratulations on your writing gig. What a great way to -- wait a minute. I was about to say, "what a great way to start your writiing career" when I realized that you've probably done other things! How about setting up a section of your site listing your credits? (if there is one already, I couldn't find it, but keep in mind I can never work the Ticketmaster website either.)

I was randomly pulled to your blog from your Rain post and ended up skimming through your other posts and just thought I'd insert a random blurb. If you ever get your hands on a movie called 'Windstruck', the female lead, Jun Ji Hyun, tells this short story about how the pinky promise came to be. I'd tell you the story, but it'd take me forever to get into the detals.

And that's neat the you're writing for IASIP. I've been seeing commercials for it so I'll maybe check it out someday.
