“Man plans, and God laughs.” I feel that needs to be in huge neon letters emblazoned on a wall any time you try to run a production. It’s been two weeks since the cast has been set and we did our first table read. Things are moving along and plans have been set in motion. … Continue reading Untitled: Day 16, Magic Hour
At this point in our tale, it was the summer. Being a bit shortsighted and not at all aware of what was going on in the industry, I forgot that most shows go on hiatus. This means that my main source of grind it out income, extra work, became scarce. If there’s two things that … Continue reading Longshots and Lenses.
I always start each morning with an iced coffee, black. If I don’t get it, the day always feels just a bit off. I don’t care about the weather, the occasion, the circumstance, the coffee always needs to be iced, and it always needs to be black. I’ve had good days, bad days, great days, … Continue reading Somewhere Only We Know.
Living in New York I’m blessed to be able to go to some of the greatest repositories of art and natural science in the world. There’s something ethereal when it comes to going to the Met at night. The museum usually closes at 5pm, so you’re never really able to take a peek at what … Continue reading A Night at the Museum.
I don’t have a lot of friends. As an addendum, I don’t have a lot of male friends. As such, ever since the fifth grade, all of my birthdays have been spent with my two best friends. I was never big into throwing parties for myself, so my birthday celebration would be a sleepover where … Continue reading 30 For 30: The Rule of Three
I love weddings. As a man who likes his romances distinctly secular, I try to avoid churches whenever I can. But when it comes to matrimony, I don’t mind the ‘holy’ in the least. This weekend was my cousin’s wedding, and of all my cousin’s (there are a lot of them) he was probably the … Continue reading 30 For 30: Weddings and Dinners on Bare Floors
The first Star Wars movie I saw was ‘The Empire Strikes Back’. I remember I was in summer school, and the science teacher played a clip to show us what an asteroid field was. Now, of course, knowing what I know now, that is nowhere near representative of what an asteroid field was. However, I … Continue reading 30 For 30: The Lessons I Learned from Star Wars
So the Committee was back in town for Labor Day weekend. Five days of going out. Four days of meeting strangers. More specifically, four days of flirting with women. As you can imagine, it was as hilariously awkward, poignant, and infuriating all at the same time. All of the following are actual things said to … Continue reading The Night Is Dark, and Full of Errors
So, if you haven’t read part one, go catch up. All caught up? Great. I absolutely abhor tardiness. I’m almost always early, and that’s doubly true for a date. As a note of etiquette, the proper protocol for a gentleman is to check-in with the hostess, and then wait outside the restaurant so you can … Continue reading Great Expectations Pt. II (The Best Laid Plans)
Setups are generally a tricky proposition. Dating in general, no matter how you meet, you’ve already have an impression, talked to each other (whether in person or digitally) so you have somewhat of an idea of why you want to meet this person. A blind date is obviously a crazy idea for clear reasons, but … Continue reading Great Expectations Pt. I (The Setup)
