All right all you sciencey types out there. Check out our ridiculously silly but professional "office" comedy web TV show set in the world of renaissance festivals! And please share. Caution: do not view with hot sauce. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/renfest/renfest
The talents behind MST3K, RiffTrax, and Freaks & Geeks need YOUR help to fund a comedy show set in the world of Renaissance festivals.

PW dollops me with a another 15 minutes of fame in literary circles.  More whipped cream, please - and enjoy the book!
We talked to the author--and sometime screenwriter (he wrote the film adaptation of 'House of Sand and Fog')--about his new novel, managing his wife's campaign (she was just re-elected Minnesota state auditor), and the American Dream.
