Not So Silly Anymore

A pretty big "pipe dream" has come true for me recently, but before I get to that, I'd like to address the comments that basically read, "Hey, will you get your priorities straight and hook me up with that Gossip Girl mp3 already?"

Psst. Hey aforementioned commenters. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Come close. Nope, too close. Okay, that's good. You wanna know how I find songs from different shows? I use this really cool website called Google, and I type what I'm looking for into the text box. No, I'm not done being sarcastic. You see, it then pumps out all this relevant information. Kind of like an "info engine?" Wait, that's not quite how to describe it. It's like a "search generator." Or a "search machine." Or...wait, I got it...a "search engine!" Try it out and let me know what you think!

Excuse the 'tude, but if you do a simple search for "tv show songs," you'll find that the first two results are and Two excellent sites that will more than likely fit your episodic music needs.

I started this site three years ago to jot down my thoughts and interests as I pursued my "silly pipe dreams." Thus, the web domain you see above. It just so happened that a large portion of my pursuit included long periods of solitude, which lent itself to endless hours of watching TV and listening to music. Thus, the mp3s and episode summaries some of you grew accustomed to and now demand on a consistent basis. While I appreciate the traffic, I unfortunately just don't have the time anymore to research every song that plays on every show, which is why "Musical Mondays" haven't happened in a while. But they're not dead. They're just in a deep, deep coma. I'll find the time to resurrect them someday.

However, this still remains my personal blog. So, if I'm having the best year of my life, then I'm going to blog about it. If you only want mp3s, please do check out the music sites on the sidebar.

Shit. Where did everyone go?

Oh, hey mom, you're still here. Okay. Sorry about the rant. Here's my big news...

My writing partner and I sold a pilot to Fox, and we're pretty damn excited. It's tentatively titled "Broke Friends," and it'll revolve around many of our real life stories from our time in NYC. We sold it as a pitch and will be writing it in the coming months. We have a lot of work cut out for us before it's even considered to be produced, but I'm incredibly grateful we have the opportunity. Big thank you to everyone who has sent kind emails and comments recently. I really, really appreciate it.

Lastly, here is, in my opinion, an appropriate song. It was also in Scrubs Episode 501, "My Intern's Eyes," which aired 1/3/06. See, "Musical Mondays" aren't entirely over...

"Anything Can Happen" - The Finn Brothers

Congrats! I was actually wondering about you the other day WRT the new show from the "Always Sunny..." writers. Def happy to hear that your not-so-silly pipe dreams are coming true. Keep up the good work, and keep us posted on whatever you feel like. Cheers!

Hell yeah! Congrats on what is going to be a great show. I doubt Fox would have gone through a bidding war for a show they didn't intend to produce.

Also, a (smaller) congrats on your biting snark. You're funny when you're mean!

Thanks Vesy! Song's a little cheesy but pretty good, right?

Thank you Ryan!

Joslyn/NYOne! Why formerly NYOne? Thanks for thinking of me!

GFlickster! Yeah, I think having Luke attached will help things along too, hopefully. Have you seen "The TV Set"? And I'm glad you enjoyed the snark! I mean, some of the comments were just getting ridiculous...

Hey Christina, thank you! I hope it makes to air so you can see it too!!

Thanks Anon 9:33!!

I'd go with "Broke Buds" or "Broke Buddies" instead, to get rid of "Friends" and because alliteration is cool.

Oh gosh, a friend sent me to this site just now because he wanted me to play a song he liked, and it turns out it's run by a famous writer dude whose work has been picked up by FOX? what?!

We are both super excited for you (and, frankly, amazed that you also have time to put up a lot of good music on the side!). Congrats!!

Wonderful news! In the couple of years I've been reading about you and Pat's adventures I figured you two would be chosen, picked to bring your pov to entertain the people, which they so desperately need in these times which can appear so bleak. I have no doubt the show will rock... And thanks for the tune. Very apropos :-)

Congratulations on all your current and future success! :)

If you get a pilot, could I submit my resume to you for a gig as the Music/Soundtrack coordinator? LOL I kid, I kid. :)

All the Best :)

Congratulations. Best news yet! Someday someone is going to have a blog that starts out "When I grow up, I want to be like: Sonny Lee." I'll keep reading if you keep blogging. Thanks for all the music. What I really miss is all the TV show talk.

I admit I came her for the music you once provided but I knew that that was a time from the past, and I still like coming here to see what is going on in your life and this is fantastic news. Congratulations. Seriously. Very very very cool. I will definitely tune in.

(And thanks for the links to the music sites. I've found ways to get my music, but I still appreciate the links).

Again congrats.

Wow! Congrats! See we knew you could do it all along!
I will watch your show on fox, I can't watch the "..It's always Sunny.." one, because of those silly rules where you have to live in the US to watch on certain websites etc! Soon I tell you! Besides we just got HBO Canada, we're advancing!!
Seriously though, congrats!
