(if you missed Part 1, you’re gonna be confused) Probably the number one thing I miss about living in the heart of Hollywood is being able to walk to giant events and goings-on around me. It makes you feel pretty g'damn awesome when you can just walk out your door and go to the most famous movie theatre in the world just to see a matinee. Or to the Pantages to ...

One of the fun, albeit sometimes weird, things about living in a Big City -- especially one with such an entertainment-based economy as Los Angeles -- is that opportunities will fall into your lap in the strangest of ways, and there's a constant test of your willingness to go along with them. Behind Door Number One is "this thing some guy offered and you're not even sure if you'll ...

Sometimes you get offered a gig that sounds like it'll either be a terrible idea, or such a weird idea that maybe something really cool will come from having the balls to take it head-on. A good example would be flying to Idaho to play a redneck in a zero-budget indie film that never got released. Another example is when a friend says "we need a guy to play ...

Story 1 I've been online dating since online dating began. Well, probably not literally, but... long enough. 16 years or so. Throughout that time, I've met a lot of cool people, had many crazy stories, and made a lot of new friends and lovers over the years. I'm still doing it, now that there's a wealth of options like OKCupid, Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, FetLife, and more. In all these years, I've ...

In Mid-2007, things were winding down for Aural Salvation, I wasn't doing much comedy (hell, I performed maybe once a year from 2003-2008), and I was gettin' the old acting bug. When you're non-union, have no agent, and you're unsure if you actually can act, your source for acting gigs is Craigslist. This means it's a crap-shoot. Sure, student films are fine, but sometimes you end up making weird movies ...

It was the night before MLK day, 2005. I remember that, not because I've got such an enriched soul that I track memorial days of fallen human rights activists, but because I didn't have to work the next day - a Monday. I was in Long Beach, visiting some friends of mine (probably having a barbecue party or something). Around 9pm, that shindig was winding down, so I decided ...

(if you missed Part 1, Part 2, and/or Part 3, you're gonna be confused) It's difficult to summarize an entire year of one's life into little 5-7 minute pieces, but there's a lot to cover. There's also a lot of shorter stories in between, which I'll definitely end up telling separately. This series of posts is more of an overview. Or, perhaps, the bloodstream of the body ...

(if you missed Part 1, you're gonna be confused) My first week in Seattle was surprisingly uneventful. Or at least... not that memorable. It was mostly house hunting, and a series of coffee shops, little restaurants, and the occasional bar. I was only 20 at the time, and I'd still never been drunk, so I didn't really care about bars that much. I was always the designated driver, though, so I ...
