The Final Call

Soon to be retired Kobe Bryant said something once I liked. Paraphrasing here, ‘Before you get the ring, they’ll say you’re one of the guys who can’t win the ring.  You get one, they say you can’t get two.  And on and on, so the talk never stops.’ So just focus on the work, knowing […]

Coming Soon: ‘The Get Down’

So the sizzle reel for ‘The Get Down’ came out this morning.  On top of looking great on its own merit, my friend Aaron Rahsaan Thomas (director of ‘Trojan War’) happens to be one of the creative people behind the scenes helping to bring this series to light. So add that to the reasons you […]

2015: Playing My Part

Your East Coast bias aside Spike, I can personally attest to two of the […]

That’s your weekend homework, enjoy!

Exit Interview

So ‘Trojan War’ is done and a living product now, officially.  It’s been a great ride, a ton of memories I’ll never forget, chief among them the outpouring of support. I love my people.  In every possible way that statement can be interpreted. Beyond the superficial links between us, that sense of ‘take care of […]

Thank You

Overwhelmed. Aaron and I have both watched ‘Trojan War’ repeatedly before tonight; there was a ‘USC premiere’ and a ‘Hollywood premiere’ last week, so we both felt good about how the ‘core demographic’ would react.  But still… This week, and today especially, the sheer number of you who reposted, retweeted, and otherwise spread the word […]
