Six Amazing Weeks

Three weeks of very intense rehearsal. Three weeks of nigh on to sold-out shows. I’ve never worked so hard as an actor in my whole life. And I miss it already.

The Lodge On Parade

1953 – Parade – Grand Lodge of Kentucky #746 (Latonia), a set on Flickr. I purchased a box of slides at an estate sale some weeks ago. I scanned them and uploaded them to Flickr, but didn’t share them too much. I don’t know details about the where and when, only that this is a […]

The Anatomy of an Eleuke Peanut

I own a ukulele now. A couple of hours in, I know about four chords and can plonk my way through a stumbly cover of Radiohead’s “Creep.” I call that progress. But here’s the thing … This ukulele, the Eleuke Peanut, it has an earphone output, an MP3 input and a 1/4″ output jack. One […]

Kickstarter – This Time It’s Personal

I’ve promoted Kickstarters before, but this is the first time I’m speaking up for a project that involves me directly. I’ll be playing Marty in an upcoming production of The House of Yes with Flickering Productions. So if you’ve got some extra cash, slip some under the door …

Where I’ve Been

Why Prince Is Leaving You, Internet

The Internet is dead, says Prince. And in response, the Internet protests. But methinks the Internet doth protest too much. In 1997, Prince — or rather, O(+> — started promoting Crystal Ball via The online sale of Crystal Ball was an “xperiment in truth” … “no charts, no royalty disputes, no returns, no arguing […]

Summer Reading: A Song of Ice and Fire

Over the last month or so, I’ve been reading my way through George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire*, a projected series of six books. The books so far are A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords and A Feast For Crows. The action of these fantasy novels […]
