The most valuable piece of advice for all mankind.

Never tell someone to “calm down.” That’s all you need to know to make the world keep revolving. Everything else is secondary.


Loss in the Modern Age

2015.11.19 | Random

Is it possible to love someone you’ve had one conversation with, separated by thousands of miles? A long time ago, I met a man on Twitter who held my attention with his sense of humor and outlook on life. Unlike most people you meet in strange ways, you don’t feel a connection to them but […]


The Club No One Wants to Join.

2015.09.24 | Random

This post goes out to my lady folk (and men folk because let’s face it, no one is immune to sexual assault). This post isn’t about being a victim (rightfully or wrongfully).This post is about how even with the attachments of a completely boring mundane life, a woman cannot go without the intrusion of power control […]


Where are the rufflecahflumpernutters?

2015.08.24 | Random

I’m just wondering because they seem to be all the rage. I haven’t seen any here in LA, but online they’re spoken about all day. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’ve been living under a genuine mountain rock on the edge of a cliff in Wyoming. A few minutes on the internet […]


A look back to 2001.

2015.08.12 | Random

Four days after 9/11, I felt the need to address my public diary with this entry.  I apologize for some of the melodramatic bits, but let’s all agree that most of us still weren’t right in the head after this tragedy.  Some of the sentiment still rings true:  Sit back in your easy chair but […]


Materialism in Elementary School aka The Lost Lunch Box

2015.04.29 | Random

Back in the late 70’s early 80’s, Tupperware came out with this lunch box which for for all intents and purposes was inspired by a Japanese bento box. We weren’t well off enough to splurge on Tupperware, nor did my family like to waste money on things that had simpler utilitarian alternatives (brown bags). So […]


Rose Colored Glasses or The Age of Wisdom

2015.04.11 | Random

We sometimes go through life looking backwards, reaching deeper as the years go by and what do we see? Are the memories softer because of age, or are they painted with a varnish of wisdom that comes through living through them? This particular weekend has brought back a lot of memories that were once filled […]


Fox in a Corner

2015.03.22 | Random

It was 1983 and Mr. Fox was planning to get married. He had arrived in Los Angeles to tie the knot with his betrothed but like many love connections, he quickly learned that the family of the bride-to-be was not keen on living arrangements coupled with sin, so he was forced to quickly find a cheap […]


Top Five Moments as a Production Assistant aka Gopher

2015.03.12 | Screenwriting

One of my most loved and used pieces of advice when talking to new writers is to get out and actually make a film before you attempt to write one. Is it mandatory? No. Will it improve your writing? Yes, in folds. But with the folding comes delight, terror, and humor. Here are my top […]


Never upstage a clown.

2015.03.03 | Random

This evening’s Twitter hashtag game was to state reasons why you were fired from a job in two words. My answer: Upstaged Clown. #ReasonYouWereFiredInTwoWords  The hashtag immediately brought forth some sour memories as a college student, drudging through a small town trying to find ANY job that has even a shred of connection to the Performing Arts.
