John Gonzales, recipient of Best Director Award

January 19, 2011

In a little town called Idyllwild, in the middle of the desert, there is this great, little film festival (http://www.iifoc.com/)… I’m assuming. I never did make it out there, even though there were two screenings of the film, L.A. Paranormal, on which I worked as the Assistant Director (and PA, and crafty, and make-up, and […]

30,000 feet up and nowhere to go

January 10, 2011

2hours and 20 minutes into a 2 hour late, 4 hour flight, I couldn’t help but stretch my legs and consider, had we left on time, I would’ve touched down by now. Wait a second… I started the last post this same way. I finished watching a movie and walked all the way to the […]

wine country is fine country, but what about 2-buck Chuck?

January 10, 2011

2 hours and 20 minutes into a 2 hour late, 4 hour flight, I couldn’t help but stretch my legs and consider, had we left on time, we would’ve touched down by now. I just watched Sideways, the 2004 Alexander Payne film about wine country. The two most enjoyable parts of that film are the price […]

notes from a Southwest Airlines terminal

January 10, 2011

I’m not one of those jaded folks who act like the slightest flight delay is the world’s biggest inconvenience. I’ve got my laptop (with access to hours of movies and tv shows) and a power outlet. This is pretty much how I spend my nights anyway. The part that irks me, however, are the false […]

The DIP by Seth Godin

January 3, 2011

Yesterday I declared my 10 events of 2011. My clairvoyance must be in full effect, because today I can already check one event off the list. I read a book. The Dip, by Seth Godin. I subscribe to his blog. His daily posts are very succinct, but filled with much wisdom or thought-provoking questions. The […]

Champagne for my Campaign: 2011 Word of the Year

January 2, 2011

It’s not a bad idea to find a way to narrow your whole year down to a single word.  It widdles down the chaos of 365 24-hour shifts into something more manageable. Imagine if you had a theme for all those 12 hour work days, those long nights, all the sleep you missed out on, […]

Flash Foward: the events of 2011

January 1, 2011

To follow the fashion of New Year’s Resolutions, I too will set self-imposed standards for the fresh calendar year. I find resolutions to be un-enforceable (I’m sure it’s a word somewhere), and have settled on 10 events that will occur in 2011. The only requirement: they all must be measureable and tangible in some way […]

Resume Tips

December 30, 2010

In the past year, I’ve sent out my resume an estimated 300 times. No exaggeration necessary. This should make me an expert on resumes, but I’d contest that point. If I were an expert, my resume would’ve landed me more than a just a handful of (mostly unpaid) gigs this year. That being said, here […]

Cure for Swollen Gums: Inner Truth and Peyote

December 30, 2010

I woke up this morning with the side of my mouth swollen. It was my gums. It was bad. Ambling about  my fiancee’s house, I kept the balloon in my cheek hidden. Somehow, even after multiple conversations with her father, Rocky Dennis managed to escape  undiscovered. I took my fiancee to the train, and my left […]

30 new uses for phonebooks

December 28, 2010

Seeing how my family receives upwards of six to ten phonebooks a year, I’ve compiled a list of alternatives uses for said obsolete bibles. (read: green alternatives to waste). Fire wood for homeless people Materials for a paper airplane Air Force Bulletproof chest protector Booster seat for people with a perfectly shaped 8.5” x 11” […]
