I’ve been nominated for a Spirit Award, and I’m auctioning off a DREAM* DATE allowing the lucky winner to attend the glamorous**, star-studded*** Spirit Awards with me. Bidding closes Jan-29-09 19:42:45 PST.

Date: February 21, 2009
Arrivals: 11:30am
Lunch: 12:30 pm
Ceremony: 2:00pm-4:00pm

Location: Santa Monica Beach, Los Angeles

Age, race, caste, gender, orientation, marital status no bar. Getting in usually costs at least $2,500 per person.
This is part of a fundraising drive to get my award-winning feature film, Sita Sings the Blues, out of copyright jail.

The lucky winner will get to prance down the Red Carpet with me (photographers! paparazzi! none of whom will know who the hell we are because they all want photos of movie stars), eat whatever they serve for lunch, drink the booze that inevitably flows freely and at film events (I personally don’t drink, so if you’re sober at least you’ll have me to talk to), clap politely, and listen to me yak on and on about copyright reform and freedom of speech. Optional: pick me up from my friends’ house in Glendale (because I don’t drive – I’m a New Yorker!) and enjoy VIP valet parking!

Also you’ll get the satisfaction of supporting Free Speech.

BID HERE! You have until January 29.

Links for Lunch

A new feature in which I recommend the work and websites of people who buy me lunch. Today’s entry: Andrew Anselmo!

Andrew Anselmo folds things. His card says “origami journeyman,” and indeed he arrived at lunch equipped with a supply of paper squares, two of which which he rapidly converted into a penguin and snake. Then as we chatted about overpopulation, environmental crises, and the world’s descent to Hell in a handbasket – all my favoite topics – I noticed him fiddling with a dollar bill. Whereas I usually tear and roll the edges of paper napkins into “lace,” or pick down the labels of beverage bottles into confetti, Andrew was constructively applying his energy into folding dollar bill geegaws. When he’s not creasing paper, Andrew makes solar panels, thereby slightly slowing the descent of the aforementioned handbasket. Is he saving the Earth, or prolonging human dominance and destruction by providing post-peak-oil energy? Who knows? The important thing is he bought me an excellent lunch. Thanks Andrew!
