Three items, mainly for New Yorkers this time:
(1) I’ll now host the first-Wednesday-of-each-month http://JinxMagazine.com debates, so join me there monthly (and send me topic suggestions and offers to be a debater or the moderator — and check the site each month to see what the next topic will be):
DEBATE: Do Women Naturally Belong in the Home?
YES: Michel “The Brain” Evanchik, homemaker
NO: Heidi Reich, math teacher
DATE/TIME: Wed., March 2, 8pm
PLACE: Downstairs at Lolita bar, n.e. corner of Broome and Allen St.s (one block south and three west of the Delancey F stop on Manhattan’s Lower East Side) — free admission, unfree drinks
(2) Or watch Heaven war with Hell in CONSTANTINE (based on a comic book character from the DC Comics division my friend Scott Nybakken works for, though if it’s bad it’s not his fault) by meeting me in the lobby by one half-hour before the 2:45pm Sat. 2/26 screening at the Loews at 42nd and 8th (or the closest time to that at that theatre if the times change — and you should probably order your ticket in advance).
(3) And Jinx veteran Michael Malice is casting a new dating-documentary show. Contact the show if you’d like to participate, like so:
>Manhattan has the highest per capita population of single people in the world, yet making a connection can be an exercise in humiliation and heartbreak. But it doesn’t have to be that way. There’s a new documentary series for a major Viacom channel that examines how people find love in the greatest city in the world. We’re looking for interesting New York characters that have trouble fulfilling their romantic desires.
We’ll spend several weeks hanging out and talking about life and love with you. This is not a stupid dating show, but rather a fun and REAL look at people searching for–and sometimes finding–love. We want people you would not normally see on TV.
If you fit these criteria…
1) A great conversationalist
2) Pretty weird
3) Live in Manhattan or Brooklyn (or at least hang out there)
4) Are between the ages of 26 and 37
5) Ready to engage in a transformative journey
6) Having trouble dating in NYC
7) NOT a model/actor type
…we’d love to help.
