Current TV, the short documentary cable channel, will be showing a video about my groundbreaking video experiment on Tuesday December 16, 2008 at 11pm on the Brand Spanking New Show. I’m not going to give anything away, but there are new interviews with both me and Penny. If you have cable or sattelite TV you probably get it. DirecTV has it on 366. Time Warner Cable is 103 in NYC and on various other channels in other cities. Dish is 196. Comcast is 107 in most cities. AT&T U-Verse is 189. Visit their website if you can’t find it on your local provider.

So it’s been a while since I posted here. I’ve been busy editing the movie that pays my bills. But I’ve been reading the comments and you guys are way off base. I didn’t suggest this open relationship because “I saw a hot chick.” As I said in a recent video, Berlin isn’t exactly crawling with hot chicks (well not usually anyway). I suggested this open relationship because I was going crazy. While I was back home with Penny all I could think about was how terrible it would be while we were apart. And I thought if I could find someone (or a few someones) to help ease the pain then maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. But I didn’t take into account my usual shyness with girls.
But now the World Cup is here in Berlin and the city is crawling with out of town babes looking to hook up. I managed to meet one of them (an Australian!) at the Fan Mall, and she was interested enough to come back to my apartment(!) Penny happened to be online. I couldn’t get the recorder going while my new friend from down under was looking, but I started a video conversation with Penny to let her know I had found someone too.
Neither girl really liked talking to each other, which I guess I understand. Unfortunately after Penny hung up on us, the other girl decided it was late and got a cab home. I paid her cab fare, because I’m a gentleman.
Anyway, I thought you should know that for the next clip, since Penny mentions it.
As a commenter in my last post has noted, it’s been a while since I posted anything here. He assumed it was because our relationship wasn’t working or because the webcam sex was so bad. But in fact it’s just the opposite. The movie finished shooting at the end of February and I got some time off before we went into the editing stage so I went home to see Penny. We had a really great reunion but then I started having this pain in my abdomen. It took a long time to figure out what it was but the doctors finally cured me two weeks after I was supposed to return to Berlin. Penny was a big help. I wasn’t feeling up to posting anything before and the blog is really not about us being happy together in New York. But now I’m back in Berlin and I hope I can start posting things soon. As usual Penny’s schedule will probably make it tricky. In the meantime I might post a few more travelogues.
This site is about a long distance relationship. I (Sean) am in Berlin for 8 months editing an American film. My girlfriend Penny is at home in New York. We miss each other. We got webcams so we can talk while I’m gone and I decided to record our conversations and post them on this blog. Vlog. Whatever. She doesn’t know about it. Please don’t tell her. Seriously.
