When Life was Simpler

Things weren’t perfect, though. Conor was between jobs and we didn’t have much money. Our early forays into home ownership had proven fruitless because we couldn’t afford so much as a fixer upper in the middle of Compton (whereas now we can afford a nice 3 bedroom in the heart of Compton with minimal bullet hole damage. Yay, us!) We hadn’t yet figured out the whole ‘when are we going to breed’ question to our mutual satisfaction and Conor kept nagging me about getting cats, which I was opposed to because I thought I’d end up having to do all the work of taking care of them.

New Headshots!

The actor has to know how to emote, how to connect with the lens (an inanimate object) and convey who they are. It’s not an easy task, but that is essentially what a film and TV actor does for a living, so it’s an important skill.

The Story of Stuff

I like to buy stuff. I like to have the latest and greatest in electronics and fashion. I want to keep up with Joneses, even though there is a big part of me that fully rejects the idea of being concerned with such things as fashion, having the latest and greatest and buying into the notion of name brands. And why should I even care what the Joneses are doing? What makes me think their taste is so great? They probably listen to R. Kelly and put out human-sized waving Santa Clauses on their lawn every December 1.

Headshot Party

The problem with shooting headshots is that it’s one of the most nerve wracking things we have to do. Not only does the picture have to look exactly like us, it also has to convey personality and the wide world of possible characters we can play.

In one picture.

How Facebook and Twitter could save the world

If you let history happen to you and you never stand up for what you think is right you will never make your mark on history and you will certainly not be remembered.

Perseverance

To me perseverance is like the way a drug addict keeps coming back, looking for those luscious moments of great high and hoping they’ll last forever.
