Plus Ones: Where Are They Now!?
My God I am such a fucking moron. All this time I've been sitting on a GOLD MINE. I welcome a new Plus One every week, we have a blast co-blogging, and then they disappear into the woodwork until they return to blog again. As if they stop living.
The truth is that the people who Plus One with me become rather close friends as a result of the arduous J+1 experience. So, naturally I follow their comings and goings.
(Note: I like to say that I've either slept or blogged with every person I know... sounds bad but I like it.)
ANYWAY... here is the birth of a new series on J+1: Plus Ones: Where Are They Now!?
Because, I'm proud to say, that my Plus One alums are all doing FANTASTIC things... so I need to share it here. Read on and see what your favorite Plus Ones are doing these days!
Remember Plus One Becky?
Well she just put out an ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS video on FunnyOrDie as a part of her Upright Citizen Brigade improv troupe out in LA.
It deals with one of the most mysterious/horrifying things in existence today: The Disney Vault.
How about Plus One Adam Lehman?
This hilarious gay standup comic has turned the doldrums of unemployment into lemonade (note: doldrums are far sweeter than lemons).
Adam is starring in an indie 15-minute film called "Jonathan, Just Because" which premieres this coming Sunday at Therapy in Hell's Kitchen (you KNOW I'll be there... bitch, I'm on the VIP list!)
"Jonathan, Just Because" teaser from Josh H. on Vimeo.
Anyway, as if that wasn't awesome enough, Adam was also featured TODAY in the New York Times! Check out the article here, and learn about what him and his equally unemployed (note: no longer unemployed - Times, issue a correction!) roomie do when sitting at home.
OH! And in case you missed this post... vote for Adam Lehman so we can get him on Logo's Big Gay Sketch Show!
And then there's Plus One (and best friend/ cousin) Kristin...
Kristin has just recently launched a very successful online vintage clothing store.
Known as Glammunition, the store sells classy curated vintage threads for ladies on a budget. Seriously, this is like someone handing you a shotgun and letting you into a preserve to take a shot at some near-extinct species.
Okay, she might not like me associating the killing of endangered animals with buying her product.
So just go check out Glammunition - there's even a super sexy FREE bag raffle going on. It'll be perfect to use to store the endangered pelts and... okay, okay, I'll stop!
Oh, and one more for the helluvit.
Remember Plus One Austin?
Well this coming Sunday is his birthday! Feliz (almost) Cumpleanos, buddy!
And what's a better way to celebrate than acting in an off-off Broadway play? That's right, ladies and gents... Austin is making his star turn in Motor Skills, three one-act plays about relationships, sex, love, and manipulation. If you're in NYC, be sure to go and check it out.
Well that was fun. Expect more of these posts as my Plus One alums continue to do exciting/awesome things in their lives. Why lose touch with them just because they're not running the J+1 weekly gamut with me?
