Jimmy Kimmel Live

Last week my good friend Eddie Barojas called to ask me to do a belly flop on the Jimmy Kimmel show which thank god is not actually live.  At first I wasn’t very into the idea because drawing attention to my belly on national tv didn’t sound flattering.  However, my love of days that make for good stories IE blogging material; worked on overcoming my belly flopping fears. We were supposed to be there at 6 for paper work and jumping by 7.  The jumping by 7 didn’t go as planned.  There were at least 14 people that they were going to have jump.  Which didn’t happen there were 6 at best. Of course Edddie won and was dubbed the “Micheal Jordan of belly flopping” by Jimmy Kimmel.  His trophy that Kara Dioguardi gave him for his high score for 26 belly flopping points was amazing.  Eddie had no idea who she was.    After a few test runs of standing on the platform that was very high off the pool and not jumping they finally told me to jump.  What you didn’t see was that the pool was only 4 feet deep with a 5 foot drop.  If you did anything but belly flop you would hit the bottom of the pool and maybe hurt yourself.  For future reference belly flopping hurts your nose the most.  My sinuses were unhappy for almost 2 days.  There really is no graceful recovery from a belly flop you’re just forced to own the flop.  My boob did jump out of my suit in case anybody wanted to know.  All in all good experience one of those things I did for the sake of being...

Hennessy Black at Planet Hollywood

Best advice I can give on blind networking attempts. Get a drink and hang by the door so you can see who comes in. Be mindful of whats going on and wear a conversation piece. It helps get you photographed, when you stand out from the crowd.   On Tuesday in Las Vegas, Tva Parks and I went out to Gallery Night Club to pop open some Hennessy Black.  As it happens I already knew the people we went to go party with.  Jey Hall works on music with Veto aka Dr. Dre’s engineer.  The world really is just to small.  Any how look for more to come with this group we have big plans in the works.  Comment on you thoughts on Hennessy Black.  I don’t even drink but this stuff is...

Sundance Film Festival 2011

  The “Ullins” road tripped to Park City, Utah. We left on our journey to Sundance the night of the 24th. Picked up the rental made cookies and got on the road at midnight.  Arriving in Park City 12 hours later.  Luckily our hotel in north park city was ready for us and we were able to check into our room early.  This worked out great because we had a meeting 20 minutes later. Our list of meetings ran back to back.  Spent loads of time visiting the different sponsor lounges. We brought back loads of stuff from Sundance and Slamdance.  The Bing lounge was my favorite lounge that didn’t have swag.  They took an empty restaurant and molded it into the Bing lounge for press and drinking purposes at Sundance.  We had a great time at the Kimball for the BMI Snow Ball.  House of Blues set up a temporary Foundation room next to Red Banjo Pizza (our new fav place).  The wheelers played and that’s where James Franco made an appearance in his blond e wig.  The High West Distillery had an amazing ice bar and whiskey chocolate combo plate.  My buddy TJ miller decided to throw himself a dinner party.  So thanks again for dinner:) Jacuzzi time is a very important part of Sundance.  If you ever go be sure to budget ample jacuzzi time.   I highly recommend the Calledonian hotel.  Close to the festival and they have balcony jacuzzi’s.  Count on freezing the whole time you’re there.  It’s a bit uncomfortable an it made me sick the first day.  Trying to be fabulous in...

Yogi Bear Party To The Hotel Lobby To The After Party

Last weekend Tj Miller held a little soiree for the opening of his new movie Yogi Bear.  Started at the top of the Sunset Vine Tower, the tallest building in Hollywood.  For 40 of his closest friends like his co star Anna Faris and fellow comedian Nick Swardson.  A very private party with the rocking DJ, Sara and Tara.  This was the Pregame.  The night ended or so I think at a private balcony inside club Avalon.  I had a great time and I hope everybody else did too.  See Tj Miller and Anna Faris in Yogi Bear out Dec 17th.
