These days, it feels like we are perpetually in the middle of November sweeps - Big! Events! All! The! Time! I don't know about you, but I'm exhausted. Some say that's the point - to wear us down - but I don't give the people who run things that much... Continue reading

Good morning and Happy October. It's International Coffee Day and yes, it's a real thing. There's no real special way to celebrate, just chug down your favorite cup of Joe and SPEED THROUGH YOUR DAY LIKE YOU'RE ON FIRE! I didn't start drinking any kind of coffee-like drink until 2011...

Good morning! It's a gorgeous day here in Manhattan and I've been up since the crack o dawn. I've been to the gym, I have been grocery shopping, the exterminator just left, and, at this writing, it's just 11:00am. But, in my defense, it's been an intense couple of work... Continue reading

Yesterday, we needed a break. From work, from home, from internet, from cooking, from writing, from it all. The first half of the afternoon was spent spelunking in an old warehouse in the bowels of Brooklyn that houses thousands of old comic books. Getting to this place was like going... Continue reading

During the 911 time of year, I get wistful. Many do. It's that thing of facing our own mortality and seeing things for what truly matters. I remember a time three years ago when I got on the 7 bus to go to East Harlem to meet the Mister for... Continue reading

I had 2 zeppoles the other day at a firm sponsored Carnival event. But it was delicious and hot and there was a mountain of powdered sugar on it. And then, I was given a bag of them from the owner of the carnival. And I took them home and... Continue reading

On 9/11/01, I woke up on a couch in San Francisco having crashed for the weekend before at a friends place. I had been living in LA at the time and was producing lots of events. I was loving it all, but was worn out and wanting to escape. I... Continue reading

Lift Every Voice and Sing James Weldon Johnson, 1871 - 1938 Lift every voice and sing, Till earth and heaven ring, Ring with the harmonies of Liberty; Let our rejoicing rise High as the list’ning skies, Let it resound loud as the rolling sea. Sing a song full of the... Continue reading

Good morning, happy Wednesday. We have discovered OUTLANDER. Bearded men in kilts. How did I miss this show for this long? That's really all I have for today. What more is there to say? See also: Brittany Runs a Marathon Another Life The Farewell Continue reading

Good morning, Happy Tuesday and, well, welcome to the holiday season. I know, crazy, right? But rather than fight it, I've embraced it. I have zoomed right past pumpkin spice everything and zeroed my thinking to the end of December. Yes, I know you won't believe me, but I already... Continue reading

Last week it was reported that New York landmark, The Paris, had closed its doors. Long live The Paris, The Paris is dead. In the spirit of this blog, let me pay tribute to how marvelous it was, rather than to add to the lament that yet another piece of... Continue reading

Good morning - did you know that it's been ten years since Disney acquired Marvel? Frankly, at the time, I lamented that there would be more crass cross promotion and less creative output, or that the once champion of social issues might become less textured and more family friendly .......

A few years ago, when I first made the leap from nightlife to corporate, a friend of mine reached out to ask if I was available to marry a couple of his friends who were coming up to New York from Atlanta. I, of course, said yes. This friend wanted... Continue reading

.... and we're back just in time for a long holiday weekend. We had a lovely time, ate too much, and, as always, a good time was had by all. There was lush countryside that reminded me of where I grew up and we saw family. One of the highlights... Continue reading

It's nearly the end of the summer and we're taking a little trip out of town to rest, relax and otherwise not be here. Will be posting again starting next weekend. Or maybe before. or after. I don't know. I need a little 'gone fishin' time. Not that we're actually... Continue reading

Good morning! I first visited New York on a stop over from Minneapolis to London in September 1986. I loved the city but felt that it was too big and too... overwhelming for me to ever live here. Looking back at that feeling now, I am happy to have been... Continue reading

There are times when the blank piece of paper on my drawing table looks blanker than at other times. I don't know why this is, but it's true. I sketch and everything looks stupid. Does this happen to you? Or, maybe worse, sometimes my characters speak to me about what... Continue reading
