Okay, SLICE is by no means a gossiping blog, but this news seems SLICE worthy. Vancouver's funniest son, Seth Rogen is on the cover of the March issue of Playboy Magazine (becoming only the 9th male in it's 56-year history to shoot a Playboy cover).

Seth Rogen along with Judd Apatow have successfully brought the "Pot-Humour" genre back to front form in Hollywood. This once overweight, but still Canadian Jew (can he be anymore self deprecating?) is a box office golden boy. In less than 5 years (2005-2008) he managed to spew out a number of hilarious films including but not limited to, 40-year-old Virgin, Superbad, Knocked-Up, Pineapple Express and Zack and Miri make a porno. Although his acting career began in 2001 on the set of Freaks and Geeks, (hello? James Franco, Busy Phillips and Jason Segel - all freaks) he actually got his start in comedy performing stand-up around Vancouver at the early age of 16.

Superbad, a film he wrote with long time friend Evan Goldberg in Grade 10, was based on his experiences as a high school student growing up in Vancouver. All characters retained their original names and some, such as Steven Glanzberg (the high school loner) were even given an honourable mention and tickets to it's Hollywood premier.

"In Hollywood, after the premiere, everyone that meets me is like, 'Did you really eat alone in high school?'" Glanzberg told CBC News back in 2007. "And we're like, 'You Americans just don't get it. These are our friends. We're just having good times,'" Glanzberg said.

Good-times indeed. Rogen has officially cemented his wise-cracking status within Hollywood's modern comedic realm. He joins the likes of other Canadian "funnyman" exports such as, Jim Carrey, Mike Myers, John Candy, Dan Aykroyd, Thomas Chong (of Cheech and Chong.. the original Pineapple Express duo) the list goes on and on.

Anyway, I think he's great, and thought I'd put up the Playboy cover for your enjoyment.

So Enjoy-
SLICE

Very much enjoyed.

It keeps coming around that Canadians are maybe not so secretly running the world. I think I fail to realize how much of a movie like Superbad is Canadian sourced.

We should be proud of this great Canadian export.

Didn't know Rogen was Canadian. And I see you're into Freaks & Geeks too. Cool.

One thing that you should practice, and the only time that I
believe you will dump your kayak will be when exiting and re-entering the boat.
You will also have to decide whether you want a tandem kayak or single
kayak. Kayaks can also be classified as ocean kayaks, Hobie kayaks, river kayaks, and tandem kayaks.
