Friday Fun: Comedy Southern Style


Friday Fun is Diva Marketing's virtual happy hour from cosmos to Jack to lemonade. A waiting for the weekend 'playground' time to be sophisticated-silly. Or sometimes just plain silly.

Recently I met a few actors from Atlanta who are using vlogs and MySpace as their virtual stage. Sit back and enjoy a bit of southern humor with your Jack or sweet tea.

True Gritz -Sas_true_gritz_2 is the southern version of RocketBoom.  Grayson Hurst Daughters and Jen Gordon play Pauline and Sassy two southern ladies who are would never go out of the house without their "faces." Pauline_true_gritzThey spoof on southern gentility and try to bring the old south into the 21century.

: GPN is not about comedy but about politics .. to some people may be one and the same. Thanks to Grayson for the heads up.

Sidebar update: Thanks to bloggy buddy Scott Burkett, Pothole on the Infobahn <> for the intro to the good folks at AITA - Atlanta Information Technology Assoc. where I met Grayson and Jed this week. I had the honor of being the AITA August guest luncheon speaker. What did I talk about .. social meeting and blogging of course ;-) Salute to David Reed and Neal Coughlin who made the process easy.

Also a shout out to Kevin Howarth for his kind words in  TechLinks Chicken Finger Report <> and great to see Timothy Moenk from What A Concept!

Sorry for the wwws .. the linky thing does not seem to be cooperating.

The workweek starts off with the Sun conjunct Saturn. Take responsibility and honor your commitments. It also means you’ll probably be working hard.

The Full Moon in Aquarius is 8/8/06. The Moon is applying to a conjunction to Neptune and the Sun is applying to the opposition to Neptune. This adds an air of deception and uncertainty. Don’t let anyone fool you. Pay attention to your gut feeling. If the deal or person you’re dealing with doesn’t feel right-it probably isn’t. Be on your guard to protect your interests.

Thanks so much for the very nice shout-out, Toby. Only thing is, I'm not an actor; I just play one on TrueGritz. I'm a soccer mom mostly.

OHMYGOD! Toby, I can not thank you enough for True Gritz! As a 'Bama boy living in the heart of SoCal weirdness, it is soooo great to get a slice of Southern fun. True Gritz went straight to my favorites and I'll be spending some quality time with the website going through old episodes. I think I'm in love all over again... Savannah's advice for Fundamentalist visitors... perfect. I swear, if I didn't know better, I'd think I might have dated those three. Not at the same time of course... they are Southern Belles after all.

Thank you! True Gritz; you ladies are great!

Tim - thought of you and Paul Chaney when I was writing the post. It sure is a hoot! Now for a vlog from a few a 'southern gentlemen' .. I dated a couple of those .

Grayson, you may be a soccer mom but you are also a comedic actor now!

I wish I was A) actually funny and B) knew how to produce something like them. They rock; Grayson and Jen are two of my new most favoritist ladies in the world (along with the Diva of course).

Thanks for the link... I'm one of the co-founders of the Georgia Podcast Network. And while we have several political shows, it's not all politics over there! So don't be deterred, folks, if politickin' ain't your thing; we also have arts, music, interviews, variety, and more!

Hey Toby, thanks for the mention! I know I've said it before, I really enjoyed your talk this past Thursday. It's great to see that such an outspoken group of people who 'get it' is beginning to form in Atlanta, and that people are beginning to listen!

Just wanted to let you know that as of this weekend, we finally have our 'corporate' team blog up at Check it out and see what we're up to! :)
