I am pleased to announce the debut of a new game I have been working on called zown. The game is like capture the flag on steroids and it's an official selection of the 2012 Come Out and Play Festival.
Teams compete head to head in a quest to control the most territories (aka zowns) on a map. To capture a zown, the player must secure the code from the zown's black box and text it to the main frame. Players must collaborate, communicate and execute their strategy quickly if they expect to win. At the end of 30 minutes, the team with the most points wins.
If you would like to know more, you can check out the website here: http://zownrunner.com

Here's a quote from a recent review of the forthcoming Freak Dance DVD:
"Though it steals, borrows and pays homage to scenes and ideas from any number of dance-centric films, at its core it's all about the big musical number. Thankfully, it has them down pat, and it wouldn't have surprised in the least if, looking at the credits, I saw the name Bobby Lopez, rather than newcomer Brian Fountain. Whether it's "Rich Bitch Work That Butt" or "Your Bathroom's Too Dark to Pee," almost every song and performance has its musical beats down pat, delivering silly lyrics with catchy tunes.
The review itself is mixed but I'll take what I can get. Full review here. Freak Dance is available on DVD starting July 10.
I recently created and recorded a new opening song for the Halloween play-turned-musical-turned-play slash fest known as Killgore. The show was written by Matt Walsh and is directed by John Frusciante. It's playing for two nights only. I'll add a link to the new song after the show debuts. Tickets can be reserved here.
I can assure you this show is like nothing you have ever seen.
