How cool is THIS? Paul Reubens (you know… the guy who plays Pee-wee Herman) will send a message to someone you know through a paid service called Cameo. You just fill out a short form that spells out your message request and pay up. Then your recipient will get a personalized video from a real legend. And no, he won't be dressed in a grey plaid suit and red bow-tie.
Cameo is a lot of fun. I bought one of these videos for my brother last year. He loved CHiPs as a kid, so I got Larry Wilcox ("Jon Baker") to wish him a happy birthday. We both laughed a lot over the whole thing and he said it was the best gift ever. No lie.
Preview videos are available ahead of time so you can get a feel for it.
Pee-wee Herman for president? SURE, WHY NOT?! Stranger things have happened. At least Pee-wee's slogan is honest: "In your guts, you know he's nuts." Go to Pee-wee's new store for the "Pee-wee for president" buttons (and tees and pins and stickers and hoodies) but stay for that terrific animated banner! Francis, his running opponent, is […]
Here's a fun collab. "Creator of cute" Jerrod Maruyama re-imagined the characters of Pee-wee's Playhouse kawaii style for a new 1000-piece puzzle. It's a limited edition/timed release, created for Comic Con. Pre-order one with a mini print signed by Paul Reubens ($65) or just the puzzle ($25). Sales for both end at 11:59 p.m. on […]
"Roosevelt's Big Adventure," a thoughtful, low-low-budget re-creation of Pee-wee's Big Adventure, is a hoot — such dedication from the entire family! A retelling if the classic 1985 movie by one of PeeWee's biggest & smallest fans – this was all his idea! Created during quarantine with what we had.

Everybody's got a story. Unfortunately, not everybody has the tools to tell that story the right way. That's especially true for someone looking to produce their first screenplay. Just as with any type of writing, penning a script for the screen has a set of rules all its own. Understanding that structure, as well as […]
Even as the world takes tentative steps toward reopening against the ebbs and flows of COVID-19, movie theaters remain in a netherworld limbo. High-profile film releases continue shuffling as theater chains, studios and filmgoers grapple with the fact that an enclosed theater may not be a safe place to be for some time to come. […]
The year 2020 has basically kicked down that door and dragged us all into the Zoom age, whether we like it or not. And now that we're basically inviting our boss, co-workers and other business associates into our homes via video, we've unwittingly stumbled into all kinds of new potential for embarrassment. Like when you're […]
