I'll make you an offer you can't refuse...

Ok, I'm back again. What delays I have in posting. These days it seems I have more stuff going on, and that cuts down on the time I have to sit alone in a dark room and write silly narrations punctuated by pictures with at best tangential relevance.

I'm still trying to decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing. Probably good.

BARON MIND UPDATE: I have seen the rough cut of what shall be known as the Hammer Video. It is ridiculous. It fills me with an odd mixture of pride and shame. I tried finding an appropriate word for it by googling "shameful pride" but all I found was a photo essay by a crazed born-again denouncing a 2005 Gay Pride Parade (Warning: Thar be Assholes). Looks like I'm on my own. Very well...

Shpride. It fills me with shpride. The shpride of "Sweet bippity Muppets this is funny, but I can never look myself in the eye ever again."

I'm drinking to remember AND forget.

But here's the deal. Oach and I are going to post this, and you can Revel (ha!) in vicarious shpride, but you have to do something for us first.

No, not that. Well... maybe later.

I'm talking about the Horrible Awards.

They were created by a Dr. Horrible fan to celebrate fanfiction and contributions to the Dr. Horrible Universe, etc. Baron Mind has been nominated for the 'So They Say Award' which is for the Best Non-Musical ELE Vid.

So you follow the link and vote for Baron Mind, and we'll post another hilarious and cringe-inducing Baron video, savvy?

I'm glad we have an understanding.

Next update: NY ComicCon!

Later babies,

A Reprieve for the Philistines.

I've decided to not post about 24 this week, to give the non-fans a bit of a break. Also because I actually have some other stuff to talk about. Like last weekend, when Dr. Rev and K'May came to visit and take in the NYC experience.


Yup, it was a whirlwind visit with highlights of Mutton, a performance of Speed the Plow, and drink specials on Heinekin tall boys.

Remarkably, my memory is intact.

Let's see a few more shots, shall we?

Here's Dr. Rev, evidently trying to explain/justify something:

"So I told the guy, 'I'm sorry, I didn't realize your date was actually a woman.'"

Here's one of several stops for NYC pizza


Evidently substandard pizza can be added to the litany of reasons why Cleveland sucks.

Wrong one.

That's Grover Cleveland, the 22nd and 24th President of the US. He was the only President elected to two non-consecutive terms, his reelection aided by an incredible surge in popularity following his invention of the Steamer, which now bears his name.

Parts of that are true.

Here's a photo of Dr. Rev and me at Times Square.


And K'May and I plotting our upcoming Amazing Race audition video.


Good times were had by all, and I suppose now it's my turn to travel out to visit Cleveland. I mean hey, the town gets a bad rap, but it's gotta be better than Jersey, right?

Oh hey, speaking of videos (a few sentences back), there are going to be a few put out in the coming weeks featuring yours truly.

One is a new Baron Mind video, to be submitted to yet another online contest. Details to follow on that.

Also last week I filmed a guest spot or two on the Bizzy Coy Show, starring my friend and old school chum Bizzy Coy. I'm not sure when those will come out, but I'll be sure to post them as soon as they pop up. One is a Valentine's thing, so at least by the 14th, I'd hope.

All right, I've got to go now. Don't forget to watch 24 tonight.



PS - Does anybody else think that the highlight of the SuperBowl was that shot of Springsteen's ill-advised, poorly-executed, nut-destroying knee slide into the camera? Hilarity.
