Flight of Insanity

During my recent trip to Spain film director Pedro Almodóvar calls and invites me to join him on a short flight from Madrid to Marbella. Since I’ve never flown first class or met movie celebrities, I accept, figuring I’ll learn much about filmmaking. What a horrific misconception. First, I can’t find Pedro, and the flight […]

Romney’s Preparation for Republican National Convention

(Mitt Romney lectured his speechwriting staff two nights before his acceptance speech. This transcript was secretly recorded by a devious insider.)

Thomas Eakins Gets Physical

I’m honored the renowned Los Angeles County Museum of Art is presenting a major exhibition of my work entitled “Manly Pursuits: The Sporting Images of Thomas Eakins.” With a substantial, though not entirely toxic, level of bitterness I must inform you that such recognition was rarely forthcoming during my lifetime, and then quite late in […]

John Wayne Reviews “Brokeback Mountain”

I hadn’t had any offers in a long time, and these guys come to me and ask if I want to be in a western with lots of action.  Damn right, I say.  Don’t bother showing me the script.  Let’s just start rehearsing.  I tell them I don’t care if I play Ennis Del Mar […]
