On Twitter I followed a few media folks, writers for publications or similar, thinking I would get some insights on topics that wouldn’t be published in articles. Turns out I learned that some of them are incredibly mean, judgmental, and self-righteous. Perhaps I’m hypocritical for saying so, because I often find that the thing I…

a good laugh

a good laugh

Laughing is really important to life. If it didn’t exist, maybe mankind wouldn’t exist. If nothing could make you laugh then maybe life wouldn’t be tolerable. Happiness and joy are really important, but could you be happy and joyful and not laugh? Probably not. I like seeing people so happy that they start laughing and…

secondhand learning

I remember chatting with someone about a topic. Yes, I’m going to be vague on the someone and topic. Let’s call this someone “someone” and use the “he” pronoun, which isn’t meant to be discriminatory in any way.

crying

crying

Growing up I thought crying was a bad thing, because it indicated grief or hurt. And it usually does. And for most of my life it usually was the reason to cry. I also thought crying was for babies. Did I cry much as a teenager? I don’t remember, but I do remember being angsty…

plays

I’ve read a couple plays for a class I’m taking and they are very modern plays, meaning they’re not Shakespeare with lots of fluffy words and a cast of a million characters. These plays only have four main characters and aren’t very long. No multiple acts, just a large handful of scenes and lots of…

I’ve recently started reading “Bird by Bird” by Anne Lamott. It’s about writing. And everything she says is true, fortunately and unfortunately. Today, instead of writing something important, I’m writing about a book on writing, and not even really writing about it, just mentioning it. I’ll also mention the U2 Joshua Tree tour starts tomorrow.…

more beginnings

I’m working with an interior designer based in Santa Monica named Shay. She’s got me on board to write for her website. It’s the beginning of an adventure talking about the how and what the studio will look like. In some ways it’s all ironic to me, and my brain has been fatigued by allergens…

Happy World Poetry Day

In honor of World Poetry Day, I’m putting all three of my poetry books (Kindle version) on sale. However, for some reason Amazon won’t let me start the sale until next week! Bummer. But it doesn’t mean you can’t buy the paperbacks or e-books today!

MJ in the movies

MJ in the movies

I recently watched “The Lego Batman Movie” and a theme for Batman’s character was based on a Michael Jackson song “Man in the Mirror,” which was cute and nostalgic for the parents of their kids watching the movie. I wanted to see the movie because “The Lego Movie” was so “awesome” and needed to escape…
