The Grind

we won't be following the Misfits to the Super Bowl

It was so close.  Just when you think everything is ready.  So much planning and cramming in just a few days hoping to truly make something special.  Let me tell you a little story.  And we think this stuff only happens in L.A. If you read...

do I stay or go? Super Bowl…

That's the question.  It's not a simple answer.  And I am not going to watch the Super Bowl. I am been offered an opportunity, which many have tried to get, to follow a group of Misfits including Anthony Ciccone (Madonna's homeless brother.  See the irony?  She is...

FADE IN…

All this month I have prepared.  Organizing my thoughts and ideas.  I've written every little bit of background I can on my story.  I even met with an old high-school buddy to do some reminiscing, which was amazing. I am doing the work.  It's like I...

rain is my best motivator

Finally. I got my dump alert from Mammoth today. Two feet of snow. A good base. I guess it's heavy snow, not the powdery fluffiness we long for. But it's a good start. Hopefully I am done rehabbing my shoulder in time to make it...

[caption id="attachment_2375" align="alignnone" width="627" caption="Nicolas Winding Refn, director of "Drive""][/caption] What a great read!  Turns out I was pretty spot on with my feelings from seeing Drive.  I did a little write-up of my feelings on the film two days ago.

[caption id="attachment_2289" align="alignnone" width="640" caption="see the snow cones on the bottles?"][/caption] and then what happens? I sat down and watched this film last night.  It's an Internet movie so I had to hook up the laptop to the HDTV so I could watch it on the big...

my day with Lions, Tarantino, and…

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="480" caption="Paul Rae gets the feature, he's a Saints fan"][/caption] Today had me under control. I spent most of my time getting ready for the Lions game. It was probably the most exciting sports day of many years for me, tied with being...

a strong day

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="482" caption="the set of "UnReal", final day, we hope"][/caption] It was a good one, the 6th of January, 2012. This will probably post on the 7th but I am throwing down now. I just got home from seeing The Devil Inside. "Ooh wee," I...

New Year starts Jan. 2nd, for me…

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="288" caption="Shootin' some pick-ups for UnReal"][/caption] [caption id="" align="alignleft" width="288" caption="me, doing sound, producing"][/caption] I always like to do that. I usually start all my "new year" on the 2nd. The 1st is usually a wash. Recovering from NYE and all the hype. It...
