Welcome back, dreamers. Bob Seger sang, “Hollywood nights / in the Hollywood Hills / it was looking so right / it was giving him chills.” The Seg best sums up this month’s column, which is all about HOLLYWOOD, BABY!

Hi Zach,

I’ve been seeing a lot of books being adapted into films. While this is great, I’ve noticed a real lack of adaptations of books by my favorite author: Zach Pugh! When can we expect one of your great works to be made into a film for the world to enjoy? I think it could win an Oscar!

Remind Me to Never Buy Another Sweater

Dear, could you do me a favor?

Next time we’re walking through the mall or we find ourselves in the shopping district and I happen to go be drawn into a store because of a particularly appealing outfit on a mannequin, could you please remind me that I never need to buy another sweater as long as I live?

Ingredients: What You Will Need

- One turkey

I would like to begin by saying one turkey is the minimum amount of turkeys you will need for this recipe but by no means is it the maximum; personally I could envision myself having up to 6 wild as all hell turkeys so that I could potentially feed the entire cast and crew of a little film of mine from ’95 called A Walk In The Clouds.

I do find the freshest turkeys to be those from the forest of devoted Lakers fan as well as former Something’s Gotta Give co-star Jack Nicholson. If you can’t reserve one of Jack’s top notch turkeys, I suppose there is bound to be an Albertson’s you could pillage and maybe while you’re there you could picture the disappointment cloaked on the faces of your friends and loves ones whilst they reluctantly eat your bargain bird.
