5. Matt's Mindbenders

Check out this oh-so-cool, mind-bending crossword puzzle devised by my pal, the wise and inscrutable, Matthew Lees, puzzle-miester, problem poser and astute figure-it-outer. Matt's crossword uses the songs and lyrics of my first album, 'Dean Friedman', as its theme. Extremely puzzling and genuine fun!





6. Ask Amelia

Puzzled? Befuddled? Perplexed? Ask Amelia. Even though she's not much more than 12" tall, Amelia's still one of the smartest primates we know plus being the voracious reader that she is, she can pretty much answer any question you may have about any conceivable subject in the universe. Plumbing problems? Ask Amelia. Dating dilemas? That's Amelia specialty. Trouble filling out your tax forms? Amelia can help. This is one astute monkey. No question, no matter how complex, absurd or pointless, is beyond her scope.

8. Bosom of Suburbia

Ongoing adventures of a certain hapless singer/songwriter that lives in the suburbs of New York with his family and a small menagerie. Real life!
PLEASE NOTE: This photo-comic-strip has a PG rating, which means
it's not really intended for kids and parental guidance is suggested. Actually,
It's meant for really immature adults, savvy teenagers and extremely precocious
13 year olds. The first issue is tame, but future issues may contain occasional swearing, drinking,
smoking, inter-digitation (that's handholding) and exploding cats. However, no animals were
harmed, or in any danger, during the making of this production - yet.
