11th February

Stop reading this blog… Seriously, stop reading.  Surely there are better ways to spend your time than reading words of a has-been hack that really has nothing important to say.

Wait. You’re still here?  Um, okay… Fine…

Surely you can think of something better to do than sit in front of your computer…

A nice walk in the park… Conversing with someone you love.  Maybe checking out a museum or learning a new language…

Ask anyone who knows me, and they will tell you that I am a bit of a recluse. I am not a big partier, nor do I bask in the Hollywood scene… In fact, I am not sure I thrive in any scene… I am a hermit. I love my house and my creature comforts… I love waking up in my own bed, and making coffee in own kitchen… I love sitting out by the pool, or watching a movie in my man cave. I prefer spending time with my dog and my wife over most people.

For the last few years, I have literally built my Utopia so I never have to leave.  I even get panic attacks going to STARBUCKS so I have purchased every type of coffee maker imaginable.

I am socially awkward… I have … Read More »

25th July

Fans make the world go round…

For those of you who have been to Comic-Con, I need not tell you how exhausting and overwhelming the entire experience is.

 

It is a celebration of all things… well… cool.   Comic books, horror movies, big summer blockbusters, toys, and let us not forget scantily clad Princess Leias.

 



And the time has come…

TIME MAKES THINGS CLEARER

On Friday May 4th, my film Mother’s Day is released in Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago.

A few days later, the movie is released on DVD. (preorder it here)

It seems like a lifetime ago that I shot Mother’s Day.

In reality it was just 3 years ago…
