Hello, Wordsmiths of MWSM!
My name is Steve Gelder. I've been reading and occasionally posting for the last week or two, and thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself properly.
I'm a writer, filmmaker, former standup comedian and syndicated newspaper columnist (the column is "Free Association", the compilation book "Somewhere Between Amused & Annoyed"). I currently live in Los Angeles (Koreatown, for those who know the city) - moved here in October
2003 from North Carolina. Since that time, I'vewritten/directed/produced a short film that is playing on the festival circuit (two so far) and a writing partner of mine and I sold a treatment to a production company that makes films for a cable channel; we turn in the second draft today, and they apparently are anxious to go to production. I am working with another partner on a series idea; we have the pilot script, 15 pages of episode 2 and a rudimentary bible assembled. And I have my own stacks of solo work in progress.

I maintain the FAQ for a group called alt.comedy.standup, which is currently under cross-posting attack from Dr. Jai and Pink Nebulous from some other group many of you know.
I'm chatty and try to be helpful re: questions, although occasionally I will respond with a smart-ass answer because...well, that's just me.

So, I'm not as experienced in scriptwriting as some in here, but I'm working on it. I'm pleased to make your acquaintances, and with all that out of the way...
LET'S GET READY TO MMUUMMBBLLE!!

Oh great, another guy who has actually done something with his life.

(I thought we already had enough of those here.)
Would you like to hear my rant # 4,293 "Why I can't sell my script because I'm not a Jew (and possibly because I haven't finished any scripts yet)."
No?... another time, perhaps.

Welcome Steve, you sound like you'll fit right in.

Oh, and since you have to go through the initiation sooner or later, we might as well do it now. So drop trou and hop in the barrel. There's a good chap.
OOohh! That was good!

My God, that'll come back to haunt you.
Oh, and hi, Steve!

It wasn't as good as your turn in the barrel.

I don't recall him saying he was funny, just a former stand-up. :-P

True. If I was really funny, I might be a current stand up and maybe you would have heard of me already.
Dr. Jai took it upon himself to post my welcome here over to alt.comedy.standup with a note that I had slandered him somehow, and so must be made to pay. So, he posted my phone number from my domain info, available online, to that group.
If I wasn't such a friendly sort, and most of those folks didn't already have my number, I might've been upset. Silly bunt.

And to Paulo...I'm not a Jew myself, but I can pass, so I attend the meetings, and you know what...? They ARE out to get you. I'll send you the brochure.
Thanks for the hellos, Everyone. Now, where's this barrel?
