I just got a thank you email from my pal in Bakersfield for the SISTER WENDY videos that arrived today! Those guys at the post office are on it. Unfortunately, her VCR now appears to be broken so she won’t be able to watch the videos. And because she’s a nice person and a good […]

I’m not Christian, so a fat guy delivering presents for Jesus was alway a difficult concept to wrap my head around as a kid. What’s the deal with the North Pole? Jesus was from the Middle East. There were no reindeer in any of the manger pictures or lawn displays I’d see. Is the flying […]

1. Good experiences2. Bad experiences3. Screenplay material I have been struggling with one of our projects. I’ve carried the script around with me for months. To the club. On vacation.

It’s official. I have now been cleaning my office for an entire month. And it’s still not done. I thought that I’d been good at getting rid of old documents that I no longer needed, but somehow, every year I find another check register from 1996 and another stack of inter-office memos from a company […]

My friend the Prop Master came over today to replace my disgusting kitchen sink with the vintage sink that Ellen found for me. I was prepared to pay him our agreed “Mate Rate” of $20 an hour, but when he arrived at my house he told me that he would install the sink free of […]

Gifts in the Mail

I recently sent some of my online buddies gifts for no good reason. For example, yesterday I sent a chart that shows mercury levels in fish to one of my online pen pals who’s been eating a lot of fish recently for health reasons. Imagine my surprise today when I arrived home to find a […]
