Dept of Shameless Self-Promotion: 'Tis the Season

'Tis the Season...for sorta self-serving self-promotion!

Merry Christmas everyone. I would like to start the holiday season by telling you what I want for Christmas.

#1.Flip Camera (for porn)
#2.Wife beaters (for beating my wife)
#3.Iron skillet (for beating my wife)
#4.Stationery (for correspondence with foreign dignitaries)
#5.Sheepskin slippers (for porn)

Yes my friends as you can see from my wish list between porn, beating wives and correspondence with foreign dignitaries, I've really honed in a rather narrow focus.

However, when I'm not doing one of these (3) things I've been doing a little bit of writing beyond this here blog. One of those lil' projects is a new short play entitled, "Measured, Objective Reporting". Wouldn't you know it, this inking was picked up to be staged by the bantam theatrical outfit, Dalliance Theatre Company as part of their Virgin Plays series.

Well, as you might imagine the production overhead for such an undertaking is HUGE! What with the chandelier that drops at the end of the first act, the Swarovski crystal encrusted costumes and the cast of thousands -the costs start to add up, PAL! As a result, Dalliance is throwing a big partay, "Not So Silent Night" THIS WEDNESDAY to score some holiday scratch! What's that? You wanna go? Tut, tut my pretties. Here's the info!

On Wednesday, December 9th, Dalliance Theater welcomes Barnaby Bright, Zelazowa, Drew Gasparini and Kelli Firth to Not-So-Silent Night, a night of music and merriment at the Mean Fiddler in Times Square!

Tickets are only $10 at the door! Ring in the holidays with amazing drink specials ($4 domestic and $5 imported, well drinks and shots!), great music and great friends! Plus an amazing raffle, where you can win theater tickets, gift bundles and much more!

All proceeds benefit Dalliance and our upcoming production of Virgin Plays.

Doors open at 7:30 and the concert starts at 8:00. Downstairs at the Mean Fiddle (266 W. 47th, btwn B'way and 8th Ave).

So that's the skinny about that. Among the prizes available will be an autographed copy of my book, "No I Wasn't Checking Out Your Rack" "Guerrilla Marketing for Dummies" which makes a great holiday gift during this or any recession! Please come or I will have to drink / cry alone, or as I like to call it -Wednesday.

In other news...

Every year for (1) month, I decide to be less of an asshole and use some of my powers for good instead of evil. With that in mind, we at GWGG will once again be participating in the 21st Annual New York Cares Coat Drive.

So if you live in the (5) boroughs of NYC and have a new or gently used winter coat that you would like to contribute, please drop me a line @ greatness.with.gumption@gmail.com and I will be happy to make arrangements to swing by and pick those up from you!

And lastly...

Did you ever wish you toured with an ultra cool "rock band" bangin' skanks on the road and then writing songs about bangin' skanks which garners you more skanks in a seemingly endless cycle of skank-bangery? Well, you can't because you can't play the guitar and have a bad haircut. Luckily, friend of Greatness, Colin Donnell, has both and will share those tunes with you now. Enjoy?





Just scrumptious, riiiight? As if that wasn't enough, he's also literate. You can enjoy his command of the alphabet at his sparkly new blog, Donnellog.

Well friends, that's it for next week. Enjoy the sights and smells of the season. Who knows, there may even be a holiday pictorial on the horizon.... A true Christmas Miracle.
