Now and then the random crazy thoughts and notions in my head must be purged, so here we go again. A little housekeeping.
So, here it is. 4:39PM on Friday, January 16th. I’m at my desk. I’ve done all I can really do today. This week. For now. “And what is it that you do, exactly?” you ask. Ostensibly, I’m a copywriter. So that means I’m tasked with providing the written words for any number of different advertising […]
There have been all sorts of innovators in film, and you could go back to Citizen Kane and Casablanca and discuss how groundbreaking those films were (and let’s be honest, I probably will one day) but I’ve narrowed it down to three events/watershed moments.
I waited. I didn’t sleep. I waited. I mean, I was lying on a thin pad of a mattress. A mattress that felt like it was stuffed with dryer lint and potatoes. A mattress shoved into the corner of the room, right on the greasy linoleum floor. Waiting, not sleeping. Propped up on one […]
Most episodic television programs begin with a “previously on…” montage of scenes that lead right up into that evening’s episode. Tigh and Starbuck have an argument, Baltar has a conversation with Six, and so on. Maybe it’s Rick and Daryl running through the woods, Carl doing something stupid, and then a closeup of Maggie screaming […]
Listen. I wanted to wait until we had the kinks worked out before I told you about my new podcast. Since that will likely never come to pass, I figure what the hell. Besides, it’s all in the reflexes. Long story short, my buddy Joe Schultz has been hankering to do a podcast for a […]

I’ve droned about hipsters, men without hats, pomades, etc. but must admit that there’s one item of casual dress that I wholeheartedly embrace: the time-honored tradition of the T-Shirt. I am such a fan […]
I was gonna write a piece on how I spent my summer, but decided instead to focus on one small part of this summer’s grand adventure. Briefly, a tale of caution and one of customer service gone wonderfully right in a pace called “The Edge of America.” Folly Beach Rocks. Literally. My family and I shared an amazing […]
It’s been a crazy busy summer. You’d think that after being fired from my midday radio gig that I’d be lounging around with nothing to do. Not so. In addition to searching constantly for the right gig, I’ve been playing daddy day-care for my two amazing (and yet sometimes very high-maintenance) boys. I also served […]
I’m a cat person. That is, I prefer cats to dogs. Don’t get me wrong, dogs are swell; they just ain’t my cuppa tea. Friends’ dogs? Hey, they’re A-OK. Any pooch I can play ball with or run up and down the beach beside for a few hours is cool in my book….as long as I […]
