Oops

This was a bad idea.

I never watched it again.

Have You Been Keeping Up With Your Z Rock?

Remember, episodes of the new comedy "Z-Rock" are airing on IFC. They're also available on iTunes. I play Becky, the drummer's girlfriend.

Episodes 4 and 6 are my faves so far. The latter stars my friend - and my new favorite improviser - Dave Navarro.

Check it out, kids. It's funny.

Thanks, Jordan

I was Friday's Honey Shot on the Apiary.

So what if I had to let Tony Serico touch my boob?

The recognition from the New York comedy scene is WORTH IT.

What I Learned This Week

I might want to rethink my definition of "leisure" when the vacation I'm planning requires vaccines of Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and Malaria pills.

Maybe Sacramento next year?

Eco Fabulous

Fashion Week used to be nothing but divas and douches. But now, more and more designers are blending fashion with eco-friendliness.

Big ups to the darling Malan Breton (and thanks for lending me the beautiful dress!) and to Edun, a socially conscious brand that uses organic materials AND drives sustainable employment in developing economies. Plus, it's adorable!

And many thanks to the best eco-celeb gossip site, EcoRazzi, for the shout out!

Keep fighting the good fight!

Happy Alison Becker Day!


OMG. Today was such a thrill. The city of Cincinnati presented me with an electric guitar with a portrait of me, a custom Bengals jersey, a funky hat from the King Of Funk, Bootsy Collins, a bust of myself hand-carved from Ivory Soap, and an official proclamation from the Mayor declaring today Alison Becker Day.

Bonkers!

Cincinnati is the best!

On an unrelated note, I'm also on the cover of the current issue of Steppin' Out Magazine. Check it out!

They Must Have Me Confused With Someone Else

If you are in Cincinnati, Ohio, at 1pm today, please come to Fountain Square.

I don't know any better way to put this, so I'll just cut and paste it from the press release:

'City officials will proclaim Friday, Sept. 5, 2008, as "Alison Becker Day" in Cincinnati...'

For real?

FO. REAL.

Please come on out so it's not just me and the Mayor standing in silence.

Awkward.....

9021-Oh!

So, here's the deal. Other than Lost, I don't watch tv.
Ask me about any other show from the past 5 years, and I probably haven't even seen one episode. What can I say? I'm busy!
So, to treat myself for years of abstinence, I decided that I'm going to utterly commit myself to the CW's new 90210. Who's with me? As a kid, I was obsessed with the old one, so I'm pretty sure this one won't disappoint.
So yesterday, I let my brain be fried by the juicy happenings of West Beverly Hills High.
Here are some comparisons between the old 90210 and the new:
1- Blowjobs were a much bigger deal back in the 90s. Now, kids get them in the morning before class!
2- A pill popping issue could have sustained a whole episode back then. Now, it's just character development.
3- Am I the only one who wants to eff Mr. Matthews???
4- I liked it better when 27-year-olds were playing 16-year-olds. I mean, who wants to see real 16-year-olds?
5- I should start doing lots of Ecstasy, because it gives you adorable sleepy eyes and an impish grin.
6- Seriously. Who is this Mr. Matthews fella?

Please tell me I'm not the only one who watched this.
