Exploring the highs and lows of the comfort zone

From the desk of Penn Horderness Three years ago, I went to a drugstore to buy some, um, feminine products for Kim. The barcode scanner didn’t work, so the sweet, southern woman got on the intercom and shouted, “I NEED A PRICE CHECK ON SOME TAMPONS HERE!” That was uncomfortable. This morning, after a really […]

He didn’t screw up (that bad)

We’re doing something big and scary. We’re writing a musical, assembling it song by song, in hopes it finds a home on a stage somewhere one day. While most of the songs Penn writes are parodies (changing the words to someone else’s work) here he’s writing his own. The musical, at this point, will center […]

Before you go, Google CGI so you can explain it to your kids. They are going to want to know how they did this […]

You down with ADD? Yeah, me too.

The Penn you see on this website, and in these videos, is the product of a very fun job.  It’s a job not too many people have, so every morning I wake up and count my lucky stars that I get to do this job. I think about all the crazy things that happen with […]

Nine months? I wanted to be done after 9 minutes.

Let me start by clarifying something: Much like last year when I tried simulating Labor for like 20 minutes, I know that this is nothing like the real thing.  I have an insane amount of respect for all that women do to usher all of us into the world. Nonetheless, it clearly makes my wife […]
