LIVE SHOW ALERT - The Flop House and I Love Bad Movies at 92Y Tribeca

Due to some major life events in a couple of the floppers' lives, we had to push back the regularly scheduled episode until next week.

That's the bad news. The good news is that our good friends at I Love Bad Movies, Matt Carman and Kseniya Yarosh, have swooped in with their Frankenstein machines to resurrect the corpse of The Movie Minute, and bring us more details about the FLOP HOUSE/ I LOVE BAD MOVIES LIVE EVENT at 92Y Tribeca in Manhattan. Listen to it in your ear-holes!

"Captains in Space" Lost Secret: REVEALED

I was going through old documents and found this first draft of what was to be a script for my friend Fed's webseries Captains in Space back in 2008.* It ties up the one cliffhanger mystery we ever had in the show, so it would've been nice if we'd produced it, but by that time we were all sort of getting tired of the F/X heavy productions, and the way the green-screen seemed to sap performance energy.

No one probably cares about it but me, but if you ever wondered why Captain Adam disappeared and Captain Matt replaced him (other than Adam moving to San Francisco in real life) then HAVE AT IT.**

**Lots of the Captains in Space folk have gone on to better things. "Captain Matt"/ Matt Koff is currently writing for The Newlywed Game. "Spacewoman Schaefer"/ Sara Schaefer from episode 8 is a 2-time Emmy-winner for Jimmy Fallon's website. The cosmonauts / Brock Mahan and Elliott Kalan from episode 6 have written for TruTV and The Daily Show respectively. "Future Adam"/ Andrea Rosen is in every commercial ever made and can be seen in movies like The Baxter and The Ten, and--perhaps most exciting--"Frankie the shipboard computer"/ Vedette Lim is set to be a major character on the upcoming season of Tru Blood.

What have I been up to? You know... stuff.

*This is a first draft so it's WAAAAY too long and full of exposition. Trust that it would've gotten better, and that my writing has improved since then.

Episode #76 - Third Annual Awards Floptacular

We've broken our curse, with our first Academy Awards-in-review show that doesn't have terrible audio problems, although it has our usual staying-on-topic problems. Meanwhile Stuart reveals looking-glass Hitler's nefarious plot, Elliott talks about previous winners of the Twix-sponsored Twixie Awards, and Dan unravels a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in Inspector Gadget.

0:00 - 0:53 - Red carpet introduction
0:54 - 35:51 - In contrast to EVERYONE ON THE INTERNET and our usual tendency to hate on things, we actually didn't mind the Oscars.
35:52 - 45:25 - Flop House Movie Mailbag
45:26 - 48:20- A brief pledge drive
48:21 - 55:56 - Dan tells the greatest story in American letters. Suck it, Twain and Hemmingway.
55:57 - 59:47 - Plugs, goodbyes, theme, and outtakes.

Dan Did a Podcast Guest Spot

Listen to him discuss the truly terrible young adult book City of Bones as part of the Read it and Weep podcast. Also, it's a two-parter, so he'll be back next week, even grumpier from having to deal with a few hundred more pages of dreck.

Dan Blogs for the Writer's Guild

So, the Writer's Guild apparently forgot that its membership includes thousands of TV and film writers--many of them Emmy and Oscar winners--because they asked me to do a few blog posts for their site. Possibly because I work for free. Here's the first one.

The Flop House Episode Seventy-Four is ONLINE
