I am not the Wise Old Fish

It’s the weekend, it’s raining and I feel like I’m trapped in a glass box of emotion. I’m not really but the world can always use more Anchorman references. Stay Classy. The picture above is based on a story in a book by David Foster Wallace. As far as I know he first used it […]

On: Optimism, with Belligerence

It’s Monday morning, it’s the start of a new week which would struggle to not be better than the last one and I’m wondering about the practicalities of shooting a mime. Should you use a silencer as a mark of respect? Is that cultural appropriation? Such a minefield these days. Answers in the form of […]

Speshul lil’ Snowflake

She signed a contract, her penmanship was excellent.  I wrote recently about my desire to find a job with “regard for me as an […]

Adulting is Hard

It’s Wednesday afternoon, I’m an adult and yesterday I almost found out where Sesame Street was. Turned on the radio to hear “…studios where Sesame Street was filmed.” So close, and yet so far. When I was younger I used to think that there was a time when I would be ‘all grown up’ but […]
