Endings are hard (TV endings I mean)

I have a weird tendency to not watch the ending of TV series I like. You’ll notice that I didn’t say “habit” but “tendency” because I swear it’s unintentional.

I feel like I may have told you this at some point. Did I? My memory isn’t the greatest right now, still.

To this day, I haven’t watched the finale of 30 Rock, in spite of it being one of my top five favorite shows of all time.

What’s new with you, Erin Sharoni?

I have been eager to feature an Erin Sharoni update for some time now. After all, she was one of the first to say yes to being in the Twitter Spotlight.

Erin now lives in beautiful Miami and has lots of updates to share.

1) Apparently everyone’s slept on the fact that I’ve been DJing since long before I was on TV and certainly long before Aoki began throwing cakes on people or anyone made more than a grand per gig. If I were to date myself, I might even say… since 1999. With real vinyl. Still have my Technics 1200s at home. Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Chris Illuminati

For starters, yes, that’s his real name.

I'm a glasses half full kind of guy

Chris Illuminati is an author (books here!), editor, comedian, Post It abuser, ‘permanent roommate’ and dad. However you decide to consume his work, Chris will leave you laughing. He cracks me up and that’s a damn good reason to feature him in this week’s Twitter Spotlight.
