Daddy don't like it.

I got a call yesterday from my father and the first thing he said when I got on the phone was, "Can we talk about KC & Sunshine Boy?" I laughed and told him we could but that I was going to keep doing it. He said he figured that would be the case, but he had to say what he had to say. I knew my dad wouldn't like the content of the videos I'd put up, but I also know that the show is going to be more than the little snippets we've been putting up. I know it's probably easy for people to assume from watching the previews that the show is just going to be all about sex, but it's not. It really is meant to be a humorous talk show with some filmed sketch comedy segments thrown in to augment the episode's theme. Our first show's theme is "Helpful Sex Tips When You First Start Staying Over."

My dad basically asked me to stop doing sex stuff, and I can understand his discomfort. He's worried that people connected to my daughter will get a wind of it and harass her in some way. The truth is, that's the main reason why I try not to connect my name with show. I'm not ashamed or embarrassed about what I'm doing in the least, and if I didn't have to worry about my daughter, I'd be pretty open with claiming it. I'm really not the sort of person who tries to hide who I am, but my daughter has no control over what I do, so she shouldn't be put at risk of being criticized for my decisions.

My father and I didn't get into an argument or anything, and I completely understand his need to tell me he wished I would go about doing the show in a different way, but I think what my friend and I are doing is hysterical and funny and I'll keep doing it until I think otherwise. KC really is just a character to me, in the same way as any character I portray on stage. She's just a character that I put on the internet. I guess it would be nice if people could understand more easily that she might possess elements of me, but she's not me.

As it turns out, my friend had a similar conversation with his mother. I'm taking it to mean we must be doing something right.

This much fun should probably be illegal.

As I'm sure you can tell from my last few posts, my friend and I are well in the thick of filming the first episode of our webshow KC & Sunshine Boy. To say we're having a blast just doesn't do justice to the crazy amount of fun we're having doing this. I've been wanting to do something like this for such a long time, I can't even tell you how long because I can't remember a time before wanting to do it. We've had three filming sessions to date and even ventured out last night to do a little "location" shooting at Wal-Mart. Here are a few stills from the footage we shot last night.

Doesn't it look like we had fun? You know why? Because we did. I'm hoping to put together another preview video this weekend with what we got. I bet you guys can't WAIT. Can you? Yeah, I hear ya. Longing is a terrible, terrible thing.

KC & the Sunshine Boy are here…almost

Here's a preview of the awesome show my friend Brian and I are working on. Let us know what you think of what you see.

So my friend Brian and I are hoping to get together this weekend to start filming some of our web show. We're only planning on shooting what we can do ourselves, but there's other stuff we want to do that will require a third party to film us. A couple of weeks ago I sent an email to a guy I've met a few times who owns professional quality cameras and shoots stuff a lot. He never returned my message and I'm kind of bummed about it because I'd really like to get someone who knows at least a little something about the best way to frame a shot and lighting and those sorts of technical things. We've got friends that have said they're willing to shoot us when we need it, but they don't know anymore than we do. But I also wonder why this other guy never returned my message. I told him it was cool if he couldn't do it or didn't want to. You'd think common courtesy would dictate he'd at least respond. Oh, well. I suppose we'll figure it out somehow. As they say, when there's a will, there's a way. Maybe I'll just drive by this guy's house, throw a sack over his head, and take him to a remote location where he'll be forced to film us. Yeah, I think I'm kinda liking that idea. See. I just need to have a little more faith in my problem-solving skills. It all comes around eventually.

Let's get physical.

My brother gave me Wii Active for Christmas. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and, overall, I like it pretty well. I like the preset workouts and I'm sweating at the end of a workout. However, I can already tell I'm starting to get bored with some of the workouts. It seems like the game repeats a lot of the same exercises and doesn't present anything significantly new. I do the game several times and week, and it's given a nice change to just doing the elliptical all the time, as I've done in the past. The main thing I wish I could do with it, that I haven't been able to see if I can, is alter the preset workouts. I like to work out a minimum of 30 minutes and a lot of the presets don't go that long, which kind of limits which work outs I choose. If I do pick one that's under half an hour, I do something like a Bender Ball workout afterward to push it up to at least 30 minutes, but I wish I could just add more exercises to what the game already has. The other thing that was kind of a bummer for me is the resistance band that came with the game wasn't very hard. It didn't provide enough resistance for me, so I switched it out for a Thera-band I had from physical therapy when I blew out my ACL. Now, it's fine, but I was just lucky to have something more powerful. I think I'm going to get the supplemental workout game. I also wish it had longer cardio routines. I'm realizing the longer I type, the more it sounds like I don't like it, but I do. I really do. You should check it out.
