The David Spade voodoo doll has shown up once before. It appeared to be more effictive back in the day. Or maybe Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star was just an easier target to hit. In either case, Jared and Tom aren’t fans. Their dislike of Spade hasn’t reached Ben Affleck proportions. Spade is less visible and therefore less likely to draw their ire. But every once and a while, he drops a stinking, festering turd of a movie like The Benchwarmers into theaters and the simply have to respond! Deep six your own career, we don’t care. Having Rob Schnider along for the ride is kind of like setting a deck fire on the Titanic. Who’s gonna notice? But for the love of all that’s holy, don’t take Jon Heder down with you! He’s young and impressionable! He doesn’t know any better!

The weird thing about Spade is that he seems to have unbelievable luck. The Showbiz Show gets picked up for a second season and apparently he’s been seen making out with Heather Locklear? Uh, okay?

Not much more to say today except I’ll be putting the finishing touches on the Theater Hopper: Year One book this weekend. I need to go into the office this weekend to tweak the layout. Originally the pages were supposed to be 6 x 8.25" – but then I started getting bids from the printers. I was told that 6 x 9" was actually a more standard size and would be cheaper to produce. So I have about 200 pages to touch up Saturday morning. I don’t think it will take too long.

I’ve really been spending a lot of time on the cover trying to get the coloring right. It’s turning out well and I’m almost done. I’m thinking about offering a free poster of the book cover artwork for pre-orders. If that sounds good to you, let me know.

I don’t have the money up front to pay for the costs of the books. But if I can secure pre-orders, I’ll have the cash I need to put things into production! I’m talking about it now, so start saving up your cash. I’ve put a lot of effort into making the book as thorough as possible by providing commentary on the strips you don’t see on the site. It’ll have all the guest strips and crossovers from the first year as well. I’m really excited to get this thing off the ground!

Anyway, that’s it for now. I hope you all have a great weekend!

You know that show David Space has on Comedy Central?

The Showbiz Show. Yeah - what about it?

I don't understand how he can get away with making fun of celebrities when his own contributions to pop culture are so lame!

That Benchwarmers movie he's in this weekend looks awful!

Well, I heard he's dating Heather Locklear, so he's probably not too worried about it.

Are you kidding me?

Maybe our David Spade voodoo doll ran out of juice?

Maybe. But torching it still makes me feel good.
