Pass The Jones?

According to this blog, Vivica A. Fox is going to be on the TV show version of "Pastor Jones." If a Pastor Jones TV show gets onto cable or network TV that can only help me. I can be like, yeah, I wrote one of the movies that made it popular enough to get on TV...or something like that. Anyway, here's the full article, it's a random blog so it could be a complete lie.

Also, Jerry O'Connell was on The Adam Carolla Podcast a few days ago and he said that "Intervention" was the most kindhearted reality show out there (I'm paraphrasing because I don't remember exactly what he said) but anyway, it's not a reality show, it's a documentary show but yeah, it's awesome, so check it out. This upcoming episode, Sebastian and Marcel, is going to be crazy! Seriously.

Summer Time.

I added a list/links on the sidebar to the podcasts I listen to on a daily/weekly basis. I'm not saying they're all good, in fact some of them I love to hate or just regular hate, but I need to stay busy at the gym and in the car.

Ash, Summer, and I went to the beach with some friends yesterday so I added some pictures to my facebook.

IMDb is always fun to look at for me at least.

Little Baby Dogs

Ashlea blogged about our last couple weeks: here. They were some of the best of my life so far. Read her blog and look at the pictures she posted. Right now our life is great and we love being married and hanging out.

I want to officially introduce Summer "Princess Sparkle" Roberts-Cohen Harmon to the world.

We got her yesterday. Her brother and sister were bought last week by Anna Faris and Chris Pratt. Anna Faris is from Scary Movie and The House Bunny, etc and Chris Pratt is from "The O.C." Wanted, and "Parks and Recreation." They just got married too!

Summer is 7 weeks old, super cute, and so far a pretty smart dog. I'm sure I'll always have new pictures of her up on facebook.

I'm going back to working for "Intervention" tomorrow, I plan to actively look for a new job over the next few weeks/ months but I'm in no hurry. I am about to finish a screenplay that I hope can maybe get read by some people.

I have tons of new stuff on my IMDb page so check that out.

Pastor Jones: Preachin' to the Choir / Heavenly Voices has a bunch of pretty good ratings on Netflix.

Also, I had a $426 red light ticket that I had to go to court for today and the police woman DID show up but she gave me a little pep talk and was really nice to me and asked the judge to dismiss the charges! On the one hand that's awesome and I'm really grateful, but on the other hand $426, seriously? That's sooo much money, come on California. I'm going to be driving like the biggest coward from now on. I'll also be driving like a coward if my little baby dog is in the car!!

Ash and I, the happy couple.
