Category: What I’m Working On


I’m out of creative retirement, and the Shuffle hit me with the theme song to the last script I wrote.

Beautiful song by the Beatles.

Devastating cover by Mister Benson. Just a huge smile on my face whenever I hear this.

Enjoy!

My buddy Dio sent this trailer to me this morning, and…

Let me get this straight…

A character, surnamed Malik, is transported to an alternate universe where the Beatles didn’t exist, and HE becomes the Beatles?!?

I’m not exaggerating; I’ve been so white hot with envy I’ve been walking around most of today looking like Danny Boyle just asked me what did the five fingers say to the face…

Enjoy. I guess…

We know what’s coming this week. If you don’t, don’t know what to tell you.

Don’t feel like everyday will be a love song type of day, but we’ll start that way.

Enjoy!

My karma (and my people) came back to me and several ways this morning.

Another day in the W column.

Let’s dance, or maybe more specifically…

Enjoy!

Somber day this way and the Shuffle hit me with one of my Pac anthems.

These lyrics were an anthem for me a bit.

Enjoy.

Rest in Peace James Ingram.

Mayer officially announced his summer tour. Already texted/DM’d my fellow fans; I see he’s wrapping up this run in the Forum.

Plenty of personal complaints can be said about the man, but as a straight up guitar maestro, I mean, come on…

First draft done. Producer hat going on thinking of how to make this happen. The director is planning a comeback.

Been put back into my creative wheelhouse. Happy.

A mood, defined by a song that never fails to put a smile on my face.

Is this the most, straight up ‘pop’ hit Luther ever had? Probably.

Enjoy!

Happy for my KU professor, Kevin Wilmott.

Happy for Mahershala.

Happy for the Black Panther crew.

Happy for Ruth E. Carter.

Happy for Regina.

And of course, I’m happy for the Godfather.

Anything can happen a month from now, but today we celebrate.

Last week ended with a bittersweet memory of my Frat brother who passed, let’s start this week on a happier note.

My Captain’s birthday was over the weekend. For all the obvious reasons, the number of times we talk in a year you can count on one hand at this point. But birthdays is one of them.

We caught up of course. He’s doing well, family is doing well. He asked about me and I shared a recent personal story with him.

His response was to give me the Official Caker’s Seal of Approval. We laughed for a good five minutes.

If you’re in the circle that gets that joke, you’ll probably laughing. If not, the larger point here is that he nailed me with a comeback, literally twenty years in the making.

We should all be lucky to have relationships that last that long. I hope you do (or are working on it).

Let’s get it people.
