Birdemic Director James Nguyen is engaged to Ms. Phuong Pham and is going to get marry on June 15, 2011 in Vietnam!” [James’ latest dispatch to fans]

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! (Is it ever, with James?)  In addition to becoming a marry man, his official bio has been updated to reflect his most recent credit, “The Founder of James Sandwiches.” James Nguyen ain’t a businessman, he a business, man.  The James Sandwiches website is pretty sparse at the moment, but so far we know that it’s a sandwich shop (presumably in Vietnam, where he’s been since at least April), it’s going to offer banh mi (Vietnamese sandwiches), and it’s opening in 2012.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Straight from the man himself, the shop will be in San Jose. Oh hell yeah. I live in San Francisco, and that is definitely worth the trip.

James Nguyen: Software titan, visionary director, sandwich maven, family man. Congratulations on all your endeavours, James! And here’s to hoping that the wedding reception includes something nice, like a beer party.  “Maybe some time, you an your buddy, you go to wedding.  You need to bring present, so maybe you give Birdemic DVDs.  An then later, the marry couple dancing, maybe they get tired, so you put on Birdemic DVD. Then when you’re hanging out with your family, with your buddy, watching Birdemic, maybe your family want to relax, maybe need place to put feet up, so you make stack of Birdemic DVD.  Then later, maybe your buddy go on honeymoon.  Maybe you have honeymoon of your own, with your Birdemic DVD.”

Here’s James reading from the first chapter of his memoir:

“Like a painter who loves to paint, I love making movies.” -James Nguyen
