Let the Pizza begin - For the next 31 days, I'm gonna be eating pizza. If the past seven years are any indicator, I'm in for a delicious month full of good friends, good times, and a lot of reviewing. Pizza Month has a new home here...



It's not too late to get involved in my pursuit of the 31 days of pizza-eating. Please recommend your favorite pizzeria and/or contact me if you want to join me for a slice. If our schedules don't line up during October, don't worry...I eat pizza the rest of the year as well.

So You Think You Can Edit... - Time to nut-up or shut up! I've always wanted to be cool enough to use that phrase, but applying it to digital editing is probably not quite what the coiners of the phrase had in mind.

Are Film Festivals cool? I think so. I am having my second annual Pizza Month Award Ceremony / Film Festival in the first week of December.

How does it work? Well, I video tape a pizza day and give you the footage. You edit it the way you see fit. Erik Tanouye* won Best in Show last year and is one of seven editors already signed up. There are plenty more slots so contact me if you want to nut up.

Maybe some of last year's vids will inspire you...

- You read this far so I might as well tell you. I was interviewed by the NY POST about Pizza Month but the article was killed because the Daily News had done an article on some other guy's pizza pursuit a week earlier. We did a photo shoot and everything :(
