NTDWL: Spreading the (High School) Love
So, there was this boy in high school (don't all good stories start that way?) who totally broke my heart (again, good story material) because when we first started dating we pretty much enjoyed the same social capital (ie. not much) and then he got the starring role in the HS Musical (ah, I see where this is going), and he suddenly became Hot Shit. This was further complicated by the fact that I was as pure as the driven snow (ha. well, not a big Ha. I pretty much was...) and there was a senior girl (we were sophomores) who was willing to do stuff with him that I was unwilling to do...
Yeah, straight out of Gossip Girl, I know.
Through the wonders of Facebook, we have recently reconnected (no apologies or "I was a turd"s forthcoming, yet), and it turns out that High School Sweetheart (one of a couple) is out in California in The Industry. And he's been working on web production called "We All Float On," an "original comedy about two best friends who on the verge of turning 30 [who] decide that they finally have to grow up and become men. 10 years too late, they stumble through every issue that a normal grown person would accomplish with ease, with the awkwardness of freshmen in high school."
Mama will reserve all snarky ironic comments about said description.
It's not Dr. Horrible, but "We All Float On" just released its second episode and, combined, the first two episodes will take you less than 10 minutes to watch. It's pretty much your standard dude humor. But check it out. The production values are awesome, it's beautifully shot, and it has singularly beautiful and catchy opening credits.
