TAURUS STUNT AWARDS

Saturday, May 14, 2016 – Gonna miss the UFC and Bellator tonight. Why? Because I’ll once again be attending the Taurus Stunt Awards at Paramount Studios. Even though I am fine doing my own fight scenes for TV and movies when necessary, I’m hesitant to call myself a stuntman…out of respect – because in my humble Read More …

“VINYL” – THE SERIES

Sunday, May 8, 2016 – As I sit here, tears rolling down my face, finishing up my binge watching marathon of the inaugural season of HBO’s gut wrenching, and incredible, 1970s rock and roll series “Vinyl”, I realize that I’ll probably never meet my drum idol, Ginger Baker. Yes, this is a stray bullet, random Read More …

IT’S ALL…HYPOTHETICAL

“Hey, did you hear about the next big fight? Both competitors are great (or at least that’s what the promoter needs us to believe). So, after watching all the pre-fight analysis (A.K.A. subliminal media control, selective inclusion AND exclusion of fact(s) and/or ‘history’, spin control, brain washing, ignoring of the purpose of rankings, etc.)…I really don’t know Read More …

A pal of mine, comedian Matt Neal, once passed on some wisdom to me in regards to writing, and it goes like this – “write one shitty page a day“. And, after watching half of the Golden Globes, I feel motivated, yet uninspired. Does that even make sense? Since I’m happy AND in a ‘don’t Read More …

ON A GOOD DAY…

OK, it’s time for a little free style… I’m sitting here on a cloudy Saturday, after eating a very late “breakfast”, contemplating the gym (it looks like it’s not going to happen, lol), while organizing my iTunes library. You see, three days ago I auditioned for one of the leads in an Equity play based Read More …

FOOTBALL “STRATEGY”

Since Los Angeles hasn’t had an (American rules) football team for over 20 years, I haven’t watched the game much. But my father just sent me this today and it REALLY put a smile on my face! How about you? 😉 “Hey! Wait a minute…..there’s something wrong with this ball!”  

MY PERSONAL FAREWELL

Monday, January 4, 2016 – I have avoided this moment for a while now, years actually. Anyone who really knows me, knows how much I love music, especially drums. Playing drums is something I was more or less born to do, or at least one of the things… My other personal manifestations/vocations materialized out of the Read More …

VIDEO GAMES

Sunday, January 3, 2016 – I bought my Playstation 3 on April 13, 2009. I had just gotten a big income tax return and wanted to buy the best blu-ray player possible. Video games? I didn’t give two shits about video games. But I figured I’d buy a couple just for laughs. So after some research Read More …
