Sterling, ‘Lady’, and Macca

  The only thing I have to add on this Donald Sterling mess is he’s making some of the shorts I’ve written earlier this year seem damn prophetic.  Stay tuned on that regard. Moving on, they always tell you to ‘write what you know’.  It’s only now on the back end, as I’m writing shorter […]

What I Learned This Weekend…

  I stand corrected. The past month or so as I’ve taken on…you know, I can’t even tell you off the top of my head how many projects I’m simultaneously working on, on some level right now.  But as a lot of golden opportunities all hit me at once (because that’s the way it has […]

Song of the Day – ‘How Deep Is Your Love?’

  I’m scapegoating Stevie Wonder for most of this, but now that my attention is back on finishing the Lady rewrite, and more importantly since I’m on a relatively tight deadline, I picked three movie star names out of the list of ‘actresses you guys suggested I should write parts for’, and I’m using those ladies as […]

Master Class in Comedy

  As I told a friend last night, this is shaping up to be a ‘burn out’ summer for me.  The script for Lady is progressing nicely, there’s a grant I think I can pull off to finance Angel (wouldn’t that be nice?); now there’s a new opportunity on the horizon which meant today was spent writing another of […]

Song of the Day – ‘The Boys of Summer’

  Things are moving in the right direction. Everyone I’ve talked to so far about Angel wants to help and likes what I’m trying to do, which of course motivates me and makes me happy.  It’s so many moving parts to make it come out the way I want it to come out.  I’m the Captain on […]

Rise

  “This city needs Bruce Wayne, your resources, your knowledge. It doesn’t need your body, or your life. That time has passed.” I’m a week into the current chapter of my life.  I’ve been writing like a maniac all weekend.  Scripts, and letters of recommendation, and film reviews, and personal notes to people I love. […]

Song of the Day – ‘Lady In My Life’

  You have to believe me when I tell you it’s not my intention to turn this space into another online shrine for Michael.  But over the past couple weeks, some of my newer friends have become aware of my Kryptonite, so for at least one more day we keep the party going. The idea […]

And For My Next Trick…

  As this post is about me as a writer, let me do a solid to start.  If you’re a blog writer, screenwriter, joke writer, or a like minded member of our ilk, what’s the dreaded word no one wants to hear or be accused of?  Stealing.  There’s no foolproof method of course, but I […]

Song of the Day – ‘Kiss From a Rose’

  I’m slowly moving away from the love song playlist as I’m done being ‘the Writer’ for a little while.  But I stumbled on this morning’s clip and had to share. I’ve mentioned in passing some of my favorite love songs I would choose for my own wedding that have already been used by other […]
