Spooning an Eagle

Hello friends!

Since we last spoke I won a Grammy and an Independent Spirit award. Yes it's true, I am now "Grammy award winning actor Zach Braff." Pretty funny, huh? The spirit awards were very cool. I got to see so many actors and directors I look up to. This is all very new to me, so I'm very star struck by people like Robin Williams. (Who told me he was a big fan of the movie.) I tried sleeping next to the trophy, but it has sharp edges and the eagle's talons began to chafe my belly.

The big news this week is that I directed tomorrow night's episode of Scrubs. (It airs Tuesday night on NBC at 9:00 pm pacific.) Please check it out; I'm really proud of how it turned out. Heather Graham is back and the episode's got music by my two favorite new musicians and friends, Cary Brothers and Joshua Radin.

Thanks to you all for getting the word out on the charity auction; Nat's wardrobe went for over $3000 and the gas nozzle went for over $1000. It all goes straight to tsunami relief, so it was a great cause.

Dynamite song: "Waiting on an Angel" Ben Harper
Dynamite joke: Why was Piglet looking in the toilet? He was looking for Pooh.
Dynamite explosive: Dynamite.
Dynamite strategy for tic tac toe: x,x,x

Peace and Love,

Zachary Braff D.D.S.

Well done!!! Congrats on the much deserved awards.

Posted by: Shelbi | Feb 28, 2005 3:21:14 PM

Congrats on all of your recent accolades. You deserve it...much like you deserve the role of Fletch in Kevin Smith's "Fletch Won." He mentioned that you were his personal choice on his website message board. I think you would bring respect and class to Gregory MacDonald's literary character in a way that Chevy Chase couldn't, though he was good in a different non-book Fletch kind of way. Hope it works out somehow.

I love Robin Williams. The man can not control himself, and that always makes for good TV.

Peace, Zach

Thanks for coming around and talking to us again.

Hey Zach,
I haven't posted in a while -was really happy to hear you won that grammy, it was well deserved. I listen to the soundtrack constantly to the point where my roommate knows all the words by osmosis. I keep showing the movie to anyone I can and I pick up new things with each viewing

Congrats on the grammy Zach! I saw a clip of you on the red carpet and you looked mighty fine. Who needs a three piece suit when you've got a sweet hoodie. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's Scrubs...i'm sure it'll kick ass as usual.

Another joke for you. Why were the melons sad? Because they cantaloupe. HaHa

Congratulation on the awards!! You definitely deserve all awards you get! I can't wait for the new Scrubs coming out...it sounds awesome since it is directed by you. I've never posted on here so I think i should give you major props for Garden State the movie and soundtrack. The movie was incredibly moving and funny and the soundtrack never gets old! You might just be the next Spielberg! Good luck in the future! Oh and if you've never heard of these bands i'd definitely recommend Muse and Jem.

Posted by: Lauren | Feb 28, 2005 3:27:51 PM

Congrats on your awards. I saw the INdependent Spirit Awards. That story about the bike was cute.

Posted by: Melissa | Feb 28, 2005 3:29:26 PM


aahh!! TYPE FAST!!!

hey man, congratulations on everything...keep it comin'. listen to travis--writing to reach you. and their cover of britney spears' baby one more time is bloody genius. and snow patrol's "run". trust me.

i wish triumph the insult comic dog made fun of you, he's bloody hilarious. it's all out of love, don't worry. he called green day "the less queer blink 182." speaking of green day, listen to "jesus of suburbia." just listen to the whole bloody cd, man, it's brilliant.

good night :þ
