It's a dirty job but someone has to view 'em!



It’s Time for Some Serious POOP TALK

Poop Talk


Jeri Jacquin

Coming to theatres this February for a squat near you is director Aaron Feldman, Comedy Dynamics and Party of Seven Entertainment’s idea of POOP TALK.

First of all let me say this review is probably like none that I have ever done before because someone has finally decided to go where no camera, other than a colonoscopy cam, has ever gone before. Letting the lights, camera and action focus on what we don’t talk about – poop.

Let’s be honest folks, we all try to avoid that awkward conversation about one of the most natural things in the world – going to the bathroom. This docu-comedy decides to break the toilet paper ceiling and let is all loose. Who better to get the conversation rolling than people who make us laugh about everything (sometimes until we pee), oh and a few experts in the field.

Starting with stories of their growing up and the family feelings toward pooping to how it affects relationships between men and women, there isn’t a moment that won’t make you laugh. Sharing their most embarrassing moments to the verbiage used to describe their experiences – there is no restroom barrier!

But the poop talk doesn’t stop there, now that the bathroom door is open we also get a look inside to discover if these funny people are one-ply, three-ply, baby wipes or even a bidet users not to mention Adam Carolla’s use of the brushed nickel toilet paper cover. The pride begins to slide out with descriptions of warming toilet seats, the temperature of bidet water and convenient remotes to be extra comfy on the porcelain throne.

Come poop 2on – there are ads that tell us to ‘enjoy the go’ and ads featuring spray to cover up poop smell, or how about the ‘squatty potty’ complete with prince and unicorns?

Comedians like Kumail Nanjiani, Nicole Byer, Adam Carolla, Rob Corddry, Nikki Glaser, Pete Holmes, Eric Stonestreet, Randy and Jason Sklar, Nick Swardson and Dr. Drew Pinsky are just a monkey’s handful of people who openly share where they
have pooped and where they absolutely won’t.

Comedy Dynamics is one of the largest independent comedy production and distribution companies producing Kevin Hart’s GUIDE TO BLACK HISTORY, Animal Planet’s ANIMAL NATION with Anthony Anderson and HISTORY’S JOIN OR DIE with Craig Ferguson. Working with such comedic talent as Kevin Hart, Jim Gaffigan, Katt Williams and many more you can see what more they have to offer at


Feldman says, “This film has been a labor of love. Done with friends and family help and support. The Sklar’s Jason and Randy, our Executive Producers are amazing and without them this could not have been made. I want to thank them for the faith in a vision and
a seemingly high brow approach to a low brow subject.”

POOP TALK really does bring humor to a topic that shouldn’t cause us all to get backed up or stressed but still does. Seriously, if you are a human being and you eat then you are going to end up, as Rob Corddry would say, working it out. This is the best docu-comedy I’ve seen in some time!

In the end – it’s comedy that goes right in the toilet!

THUNDER BAY Brings Homemade Gift Ideas That Charm!

Thunder Bay has just won my heart and my urge to constantly be creating bringing several projects that are perfect for the holiday season. By expanding its crochet titles, I want to share with you the new projects and that I have taken on!

Let’s start with the PEANUTS CROCHET kit that includes five colors of yarn, two mental crochet hooks, stuffing, tapestry needle and embroidery threat. Now what will you be creating with this? Well Charlie Brown of course but you won’t be stopping with this iconic character. There is enough material to also create Snoopy and Woodstock.

If you are like me you will be wanting the entire gang including Linus, Franklin, Lucy, Sally, Peppermint Patty, Pigpen, Flying Ace Snoopy, Schroeder, Marcie and even Schroeder’s piano and Linus’ blanket and Snoopy’s doghouse because a full color paperback manual is also included to give you step-by-step instructions to complete the gang!

When I began to create Charlie Brown I will admit to being a little bit nervous. The funny thing is I have been crocheting since I was seven years old so nervous never occurred to me. I had no reason to be because once I began slowly to make sure I was doing it right – off I went! It is so fantastic to slowly see Charlie Brown, then Snoopy and finally Woodstock come to life. In case you are wondering, I absolutely intend to create the whole Peanuts gang as I want to give them all to my granddaughter for her room.

The next crochet kit is the Disney Classic Crochet that brings it together creating Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. The kit includes the tapestry needle, embroidery thread, three colors of felt, yarn and materials to create these loveable and memorable characters. Once again the kit includes the instruction book so that creating the gang will be simple.

Add to the Disney characters are Minnie Mouse, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Chip n’ Dale, Dumbo, Bambi, Lady, Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket (which has been the most fun to see come to life in my needle crafting hands!). These characters will be adorning my grandson’s room!

Finally, Thunder Bay brings the Star Wars Crochet kit that includes yarn needle, safety eyes to create my ever favorite Star Wars character Yoda and a Stormtrooper. Yes, once again an instruction booklet is included to create C-3PO, Princess Leia, Wicket the Ewok, Luke Skywalker, the loveable R2-D2, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Jabba the Hut and finally – Darth Vader.

I am so excited that Yoda turned out so amazing that I’m whizzing through the rest of the characters. In case you are wondering – the Star Wars crochet characters are staying with me. Oh yes, that’s right I am a Star Wars fan since the first film opened all those years ago. Along with my own Star Wars collection, the best part of it will be that these characters are created by my own hands so they will be living with me!

Thunder Bay Press publishes a wide range of formats that include fun interactive activity titles and kits for such things as origami, cooking, crafts, games and art. They also carry books on art, fitness, pets, travel, history, culture, sports and nature. There is something for everyone and you can see for yourself at

Working on these projects has been so much fun for me. There is something amazing about creating anything with my own hands but it’s even more meaningful knowing they will someday belong to the people I love.

That’s the emotional thing about creating these characters – especially for us Nana’s who want to home make something for our grandchildren. It means so much that one day they will appreciate the time and love that goes into creating each of these memorable characters.

I can not wait to try more of the creative things that Thunder Bay has to offer and sharing them with you. So take a moment to consider the PEANUTS, DISNEY and STAR WARS crochet kits for someone you know that has a love of not only these iconic characters but of those who would appreciate such a special gift for the holidays.
