New Filmmakers LA wants you to Dig Comics

Dig Comics has been selected to screen as part of New Filmmakers LA at the historic Sunset Gower Studios! This is a pretty big honor, so needless to say, we’re pretty excited!

Tickets cost only $5.00 and go on-sale Friday, March 19th. The screening is 6:00 PM, Thursday, April 8th. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with director Miguel Cima and an after-party. If you live in the LA area and have yet to see Dig Comics, here is a chance I would not pass up!

Congratulations, You’re Alive!

Yay, you made it!

If you observe Daylight Savings Time, you were more likely to have a heart attack Monday morning than any other Monday of the year. According to an LAist article yesterday:

So the natural increases in heart rate and blood pressure will be even further behind [Monday morning] than after any other weekend – in fact, it will be 80 minutes behind. So the stress of the alarm [clock] will be greater, and the immediate stress-related rise in blood pressure and heart rate will be even faster and bigger than any other weekend. So if your heart is already damaged in some way, you stand a greater chance of experiencing a heart attack on the Monday following the spring-forward time change than any other Monday of the year.

Phwew! I was so relieved to make it through the day!

For the whole scientific explanation, check out the full LAist article.

WalkMS – over $1K raised so far!

For a second time, I have just broken past my fund raising goal for the Greater LA Walk MS!

My original goal of $500 was quickly surpassed within four days of my announcement, in tribute to my wife Nahleen who inspires me in her battle with MS every day and the 84-year-old woman from New Jersey who rides her single-speed bike 150 miles every year to raise money for MS. It is slightly over two weeks later and my increased goal of $1,000 was just met!

Tremendous thank yous to everyone who has donated and emailed or messaged me with enthusiastic support!

What should my next goal be? How much would you pay to see me in a heels and dress? Yes, that’s right. In case you forgot, I’ll be dressing as the lady pictured above. Click the image to read the original CNN article, which helped me come up with this goofy idea.

Here’s my updated and spruced up Walk MS Page. And here’s our team page (we’d love to have you join our team! Don’t worry, you don’t have to dress up like me.).
