Today’s shameless roast DVD plug

Fun fact about the new Bob Greenberger roast DVD: For a number of reasons that are explained in the producers’ commentary track, I decided to produce this show in classic-looking black-and-white, with color footage only for the opening and closing credits.

Has the experiment proved a success? Watch the teaser clips I’ve uploaded to YouTube and decide for yourself. Here’s the first one, featuring some of the opening remarks by roastmaster Alan “Sizzler” Kistler, the creator of host of Crazy Sexy Geeks: The Series.

To buy a copy of the DVD, go to my website: http://www.davidmack.pro/dvd/

Support the Shore Leave charity roast!

Long story short: I’m looking for people who want to help finance The Third Annual Shore Leave Comedy Roast for Charity. Our guest of honor in 2011 is fan-favorite author, editor, and politician Robert Greenberger, aka Bob.

If you’re interested in making a donation to receive an on-screen producer’s credit and get on the comp list for a free DVD, click here to learn more.

You can also buy official Shore Leave Roast merchandise from our Cafe Press store. The first 70 fans who come to the roast wearing one of our official BOB T-Shirts will be eligible to take advantage of reserved premium seating for the roast. Be up close and personal when the insults start flying!

Proceeds from these sales will help finance this year’s ridiculously expensive show. If by some miracle, between sales and donations, we earn more than the show costs to produce, all profits will be donated to the American Red Cross.

Calling all Facebookers…

Let’s say you have a profile on Facebook. And, for whatever reason, you have not yet added me as a friend. “What would be the point?” you ask.  It’s a fair question.

Well, if you’re a fan of Keith R.A. DeCandido, or if you’d just like to see me and several other bestselling authors of Star Trek tie-in novels embarrass ourselves as amateur stand-up comedians, here’s a reason: I have posted the edited video of The Shore Leave Roast of Keith R.A. DeCandido on my Facebook profile. It is, however, only viewable by people who are my “friends” on Facebook.

How do you become one of those friends? Easy: just ask. All are welcome. Come and join me on Facebook, watch the vids, and leave a comment if you like.

(Why, yes, I am utterly shameless. … Why do you ask?)
