Marilla eats Kit Kat Chunky Max's. Josh eats $600 a month of vitamins. Who's healthier? The discussion touches on chihuahuas, Dr. Mercola, Val Kilmer, Russell Crowe, Jack Lalanne, Woody Allen, the antioxidants in dark chocolate, the existence of God and those giant Kit Kat bars they used to have in movie theatres.

ABOUT TALKING BOLLOCKS: Talking Bollocks (a British expression meaning chatting about whatever) is a talk show born out of frustration. Marilla Wex and Josh Rachlis want to host a talk show. Until they get one, they're interviewing each other. See more of Marilla at and more of Josh, well, right here.

I'm interviewed about my screenplay for

Because my rom-com feature film screenplay "Focus Group" won the Script Showcase 2009 international screenplay contest, the website was interested in learning more about me and my writing process. I was only too happy to oblige, in order that all writers be able to learn from my horrible mistakes. I mean, from my incredible skills. You can read the interview here:

Radio movie review of Kick-Ass

Listen below or at This review of the movie “Kick-Ass" was supposed to air May 1, 2010 show on 1650AM CINA Radio, Toronto’s South Asian Radio Station. It wound up airing May 15th. Not that it makes any difference to anyone, but I'm a stickler for detail. Some might say OCD. I prefer to think of it as a superpower. Maybe I'll don a costume and fight crime as OCD Man. If I can ever decide on a costume. In the meantime, I'll bask in the reflected glory of the superheroes in this movie. Pay no heed to Roger Ebert's scathing review of it. I loved it. And I don't like much of anything. Just ask anyone who's had the misfortune to date me. Anyway, at this point I'd normally say: "Hear future reviews on The Scope Today with Prab, Saturdays 10-11am on 1650AM in Brampton or at" But this was Prab's last show. So, if anyone wants me to do reviews for your radio station, TV station or Bar Mitzvah party, I'm all yours.

My MC'ing Night For Nature mentioned in Toronto Star

My MC'ing of the recent "Night For Nature" is mentioned in this eco-riffic article by Ellen Moorhouse from today's Toronto Star about the green-tastic work being done by GreenPower, the environmental group at Michael Power/St. Joseph's High School in Etobicoke. Full disclosure: I might be a bit biased about the GreenPower's enviro-awesomeness, because I'm a big personal fan of the teacher who runs the group, Ms. Jennifer Gee. In fact, we've picked up litter together. For, as today's article mentions, Jenn wrote to me last summer after reading the August article ( that Ellen wrote about my eco pursuits. The subject line of Jenn's email was "Fan mail?" But I choose to disregard the question mark, because I most certainly want fan mail. Especially from cute eco chicks. Anyway, where was I? Oh, right. Today's article. Read it here:
P.S. Check out that pic. Is there anything hotter than a woman holding a discarded toilet seat? I think not. No, seriously!
