The Grind

the run is over

There are a couple of ways to look at it. "It" being symbolic of a distraction. A distraction that I consider a very important part of a person's life. Everybody should have a distraction that inspires them, gets them fired up, and even makes them...

It's a wrap…almost

It is so damn close I should just say it. Seriously. Thanks to a little help getting a production trailer from my boy Chris Fox, I knew helping you move would pay off. And thanks to the police for not arresting us while shooting...

this says everything about where I am at.

My buddy passed this to me yesterday.  I need to pass it on.  This weekend ended pretty rough but I bounced back quickly and reading this just reinforced the hard work behind and ahead of me.  Got to credit my producing partner, Ryan Philander, for...

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…

[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. Part of my new year plan...

Project 365

[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="481" caption="Happy Birthday Danny Fischer"][/caption] All right folks. I finally figured out what I am going to post about, everyday, for an entire year. Cool thing is, I am not starting from January 1st and ending on December 31st. I already missed that...

[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...
