When I'm at the pearly gates/This'll be on my videotape

If you find yourself around a copy of this week's New Yorker, make sure to read Paul Rudnick's hilarious account of writing a comic screenplay about nuns for Disney. (Spoiler alert: It eventually became Sister Act.) The guy has never been funnier. His tell-all piece reads like Sedaris in his prime, with a showbiz edge, or like the best work of This American Life veteran David Rakoff. Just excellent stuff, from start to finish.
