You can now log into most web and mobile applications via Facebook Connect, a service that is essentially an online extension of yourself. This presents a less entertaining, but definitely more efficient, technology than the tunnel Charlie Kaufman constructed to help people enter John Malkovich. Imagine the Being John Malkovich sequel, where John Cusack would just install an app, click Connect With Facebook, and immediately be inside of Malkovich from the comfort of his own (weird) living room.
This episode of Post-Nup is an important look at the future of this people-entering technology. And don’t be scared of people-entering technology! For writers and other artists who find it difficult to charge for their work in the Internet era, it presents the possibility of an additional, much-needed revenue stream. If a fan will pay good coin to watch a behind-the-scenes documentary about you, how much more would they pay to sit inside your fraggin’ head for a while?
I would pay good money to sit inside of a lot of different people. And so would the talented Parvesh Cheena (star of Outsourced, RIP), who is guest-starring in Episode 13.
PS. Post-Nup will be screened September 14th (closing night!) at the United Film Festival in Chicago.
