MORNING HAPPINESS: How the cake turned out.

Good morning, friends.  The things I put in my stomach last night have it trying to vacate my body.  I’m going to go back lay down. But before I do I wanted to share pictures of Michaelyn’s cake: [Read more...]

Living with dignity.

My last remaining grandparent is dying.  Cancer, it’s a bitch. It’s ok, my grandmother was never a major part of my life.  But my mother and her sister are taking care of her and for them, well, it’s hell.  They get to be there and watch her body be eaten away and now watch her mind deteriorate. [Read More...]

For real though, happy Mother’s Day, mom.

My mother is the epitome of caring too much. Like, seriously, she should tone down the caring a bit. She drives herself nuts worrying about her family. On the upside, as far as moms go this quality makes her second-to-none. I never wanted for love, even at my most frustrating as a son. Hell, I’m [Read More...]

What made performing special for me – bringing the unreal to life.

There are two things that really attracted me to theater.  The first is showing people very real things they don’t often think about or get to experience.  These are things like the overpowering feeling of first love or the agony of making big mistakes (like we so often do in the thrall of first love).

It’s funny how ambitions change over time.

It’s amazing how one’s ambitions change throughout life. In high school I just wanted to be accepted.  I wasn’t.  The things that appealed to me just weren’t the things that interested my peers.  Not only did I feel inadequate around them at all-times personality-wise, I felt hideous and fat by comparison which, to my mind, [Read More...]

PERSONAL: Happy birthday, Hitch.

Yesterday was Christopher Hitchens’ birthday.  I miss him.  Here’s a cartoon: Abraham is held up as an example in Sunday school to children.  He was the good guy because when god told him to murder his son he acquiesced.  The irony is that he could not have failed a moral test any more.  The right [Read More...]

You guys are wonderful.

Hey all.  Just a quick post to remind you how much I love you, and how you reminded me in two posts yesterday. In Gabrielle’s post she said some unpopular things (some of which I disagree with, and have told her so).  Those who commented did so assuming the best, arguing calmly and reasonably.  In doing [Read More...]

PERSONAL: Sorry to disappoint you, Julian.

I often envy people’s abilities to extract hidden meanings from things, almost on a Sherlock Holmes level. For instance, I said that when you disagree with some people in the atheist movement, even people whose goals you almost universally share, they’ll attempt to smear and destroy you instead of resolving the argument.  One keen person [Read More...]
