What They Say About The Wedding
Staring Carma and Christopher:

“A touching tale of two geeky loners who find love at last.”

Raised a conservative German Lutheran in the wilds of suburban Minnesota, over the course of his life Christopher has consistently found himself in locations and situations far from those of his upbringing: first, surrounded by East Coast Irish, Italians, and other ethnicities at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC; and then, by assorted potheads, tree-huggers, and other remnants of the leftist 1960s in the hippie haven of Eureka, California.

Today, Christopher brings his Midwestern manners and morals to the world capital of cultural decadence, Los Angeles, where he strives valiantly (if in vain) to preserve some modicum of decorum, decency, and taste in American entertainment as Director of Research for the Parents Television Council – a battered knight battling for What Is Right, in a world where Right and Wrong have traded places; who stands for unfashionable Tradition against the crushing tidal wave of so-called Progressivism.

But at last, this valiant soul has found solace. In the embrace of Carma, his gloom is dispelled, as the night by the dawn’s first rays; and through her love, he finds joy…and the strength to fight another day.

Q&A

Question: If a movie were made of your life, what actor (past or present) would you want to play you, and why?

Answer: If we’re going with who I wish I were/who I am on the inside: Errol Flynn. A happy-go-lucky, handsome, charming, chivalrous swashbuckler.

If we’re going with who I actually am/who other people see: Rodney Dangerfield. An overweight, neurotic failure who “don’t get no respect.”
