The other night I had my first real HarperStudio experience. I call it that because it was experimental and different. I’ve been to author events before, but not in this capacity. With just my laptop, we live streamed. Isabella Rossellini’s event for GREEN PORNO at a local bookstore. It was a great event—Isabella is charming, funny and very knowledgeable about how whales reproduce. We had a good crowd, good films, good questions. And we had viewers tune in to the event on their computers at home to watch live. Don’t worry if you missed it, you can see it here:
One of my favorite new sites is Groupable. I found out about them on Mashable. Basically, they put together sponsors with groups. From where I sit, I can think of about 10,000 ideas for both sides of that equation. Lucky for me, Groupable’s fabulous Gerrit Hall is just a phone call (or AIM) away and responds to all of my ideas with enthusiasm and follow up (if only the whole world could be like that…).
The Keyword Search function in Google Analytics is one of my favorite features. “Porno” and “Animalsex” are consistently in our top 10 (thank you Isabella Rossellini)…and those searches often come from Turkey. Not sure what that means; I’m just sayin’…
Also of note here is that “haste yee back” is often in our top 10 search terms. Haste Yee Back is one of our most consistent commenters — and I have to say, always with a smile on his face, he’s got something sweet to say (Love you Haste Yee ).
Did you catch Isabella Rossellini on the Today Show yesterday? If not, check out her appearance below. She talks about her new season of Green Porno and keeps Kathie and Hoda in stitches!
What could be more scandalous than watching Isabella Rossellini portraying bugs having sex? Turns out sea creatures are even more fascinating.
Check out this Talk of the Town piece in The New Yorker about Rossellini’s latest series of short films. And if Rossellini talking about “Why Vagina” appeals to you, stay tuned for her book, Green Porno which goes on sale in September.
Last week I had the pleasure of attending an intimate screening of Isabella Rossellini’s second Green Porno series on sea creatures. Having worked on the book version of these short films, I knew pretty much what I was in for, but I still couldn’t help from laughing with the crowd at the impossibly absurd image of Isabella wearing a towering crown of limpets, stating matter-of-factly: “Then I die because we all have to die.” Or at the amused look of shock on Bob’s face as he watched Isabella reappear on the screen as a whale with a large dangling phallus.
Needless to say, we’re very excited about the book and the second film series, which premieres April 1st on the Sundance Channel. Since the first series was such an overnight internet sensation, you might find Green Porno not only on the web but also at your local bus station. Keep your eye out for a pair of love-making shrimp on a bus near you!
