Hot Tub Time Machine - Tim Dimond

Today, Tim writes and pitches his screenplay for the upcoming film “Hot Tub Time Machine”. Tim knows nothing more than what he has seen in the trailer. Enjoy.

INT – SKI LODGE – DAY

JOHN CUSACK 1986 stands drinking at a ski lodge bar.

LIGHTNING STORM and suddenly JOHN CUSACK NOW appears in the hot tub.

JOHN CUSACK NOW

John Cusack!

John Cusack 1986 tuns around.

JOHN CUSACK 1986

Yes?

JOHN CUSACK NOW

It’s me! You from the future!

JOHN CUSACK 1986

From the future?! But how did you get here?

JOHN CUSACK NOW

Well I couldn’t find a giant pirate ship steering wheel near any of the Dharma stations and they stopped producing DeLoreans ages ago, so I took a hot tub.

JOHN CUSACK 1986

Oh, that makes sense. So why did you come back?

JOHN CUSACK NOW

Because, John – NOW, you are “Better Off Dead”. But in the future, you are BETTER OFF DEAD! If you don’t die you will make this horrible movie that I’m trapped in right now!

JOHN CUSACK 1986

But if you’re still in the filming, how do you know it’s going to be a bad movie?

JOHN CUSACK NOW

You going to have to trust me.

JOHN CUSACK 1986

But won’t I do some good films as well?

Funny Bone Station Square is CLOSED!

The Funny Bone comedy club is moving from Station Square to Greentree.
The club will be closed from today until April 9, when it will reopen at the Radisson Hotel in Green Tree. The opening act at the new location has yet to be announced.
In a release announcing the move, the club made a point of noting that there would be free parking at the Radisson. Station Square has paid parking, although validations are available at some of the restaurants.
Club spokeswoman Darlan Erlandson said the Funny Bone has had a lot of success with a recently opened second venue at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in Cranberry and decided to give Green Tree a try.
"[Co-owner Jeff Schneider] just felt the Radisson Green Tree was a good location based on the calls he was getting. There was a great demand for that area," Ms. Erlandson said.

To Live & Die as a Comedian - Mike Buzzelli

A couple times a week PghComedy.com will have blogs, articles & musings by various comedians & entertainers from Pittsburgh.

From the Observer-Reporter.org - 3/22/10
by Mike Buzzelli

I am somewhat of a klutz.

I realize the word somewhat is an understatement. It is akin to saying, “The architecture in Dubai is somewhat elaborate.”

Because of the inelegant lumbering, I’ve had several close calls with the grim reaper. I once tripped in the street in Paris. We were steps from the Arc de Triomphe, a busy intersection in the French city. I was staring at a bus barreling down in my direction. I was too startled to get up; so I rolled out of the path of the oncoming vehicle. I had narrowly escaped death, but my friends were too busy laughing to aid me.

In Greece, I misjudged my footing on the cliff at Cape Sounion and almost tumbled into the deep blue water. Luckily, a friend grabbed my arm and pulled me back. I would have died like Aegeus himself, tumbling into the briny depths. Aegeus’s son, Theseus, forgot to change out the black sail on the ship, leaving his dad to believe he was dead. Aegeus couldn’t bear the thought of mourning his son, so he leapt off the cliff. My death wouldn’t have been as poetic; it would be from shear clumsiness.
