8th January

I have a secret… My Birthday is on Saturday. I will be 35, going on ancient. This Birthday will probably be the hardest Birthday I will have suffered through, not because I feel any older, but because I realized an entire year has passed and I didn’t know it.  I didn’t realize it…

HOW DO YOU MEASURE TIME?

A stopwatch? A clock? A calendar?

I don’t have a traditional job… I don’t wake up at a traditional hour, and I don’t go to sleep at a traditional time… Friday is no more exciting to me than Monday… Every day of the week has the same importance as the one that came before or after.  Call it a champagne problem of being a director, or that of not having a job.

Maybe when I was younger, the idea of not having a 9-5 would … Read More »



Confessions of an Addict

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…

BUT, if you are going to read my blog I propose a challenge to you… Do nothing else in the time it takes you to complete this post.  Do not check your email, answer the phone, or go make yourself a turkey sandwich.  Be PRESENT…  Truly present…

I AM AN ADDICT…

I have something I really need to get off my chest… I am an addict…



A Family Affair

A Family Affair 

My life has been relegated to boxes… thousands, and thousands, and thousands of boxes.  Boxes and labels, don’t get me started on the fucking labels.

 

This week THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL was released to the world.  DVD/ NETFLIX/ iTUNES/ HOT TOPIC/ the list goes on and on.

On September 28th, The Barrens opened in theaters, and on October 9th, the film expands to  VOD/DVD and Streaming.

LIFE LESSONS:

It is this writer’s humble opinion that one of the most difficult aspects of being a filmmaker is taking criticism.

There are those out there who will argue YOU CHOSE THIS, so stop being a whiny little bitch, and take it like a man…

8th August

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 »
