Category: What I’m Working On

The comedy stuff I’ve done hasn’t really been consolidated into one piece, until now.

My buddy Jeebz likes to edit, so we tried to tone a few of the parts I’ve played over the years into a ‘comedic timing/hit the punchline’ highlight reel.

As far as the intro/outro, hand to God, as we were in the middle of it, my only thoughts were ‘Everyone is going to expect me to touch on this, let’s use it to set the tone.’

Only now as a passive observer do I see it and go, ‘Huh, I guess I can officially scratch playing this character on screen off my bucket list.  Cool.’

Anyway, enjoy!

New week.  Mood.

Enjoy!

I’m not a ‘gospel’ guy in the traditional sense obviously, but damn this song (and this version) gets to me.

And I know I’m far from alone.  First time I heard it was in ‘The West Wing’ I think.  And Kate McKinnon did a nice version on SNL a year or so ago.

Lyrics by Leonard Cohen. Jeff Buckley vocals and guitar.

Enjoy.

Barry Jenkins’ trailer dropped this week, and I’m about to hop back onto HBO for Issa, and pretty high odds I’ll have some thoughts on Spike’s new movie next Sunday, and Tessa is…Tessa…

So this is as good of a video to start the week as any.

Enjoy!

Been cackling at my desk for the last ten minutes…

I’m a big fan of the first Mission Impossible, but never really thought of them as heist films (which I also love) until now.

Time to cede the floor today to Michael Tucker and ‘Lessons from the Screenplay’…

Let’s start this week off on a light note.  It was an off day for my workout routine, but this came on and I was shimmying around my apartment for a good thirty minutes.

On the list of great songs that movies gave us, this has to be way up there.

(And the video effects at the end of this kill me…  WHY ARE THEY WET?!?)

Enjoy!

‘Lessons from the Screenplay’ has quickly become my favorite video essay series in breaking down why some films and TV shows work (and some don’t)…

Today, Michael Tucker breaks down Killmonger and Black Panther, and to say I was enthused by his thesis is an understatement.

Enjoy!

Well…

We’re still here.

Enjoy the day off everyone.

I had some thoughts about starting this week talking about ‘This Week’s Atrocity’.  But…

We’re about to head into July.  I think it’s time to clock the outrage, and focus on November.

So let’s get into some music to start the week.

Always loved the simplicity of this video.  Pretty girl, Wendy(?) on guitar, shirtless lead vocals.

BAM.

Enjoy!

Today’s video is one of my theme songs, performed by one of the show biz greats.

I’ve auditioned to play Sammy once; it’s still a dream part for me.  May realistically be a little too far removed at the moment for what Paramount is setting up, but you never know…

Enjoy!
