3 Women

I don’t know if it’s possible to make a film like 3 Women anymore. Even Robert Altman seems to have problems making Robert Altman films these days: studios aren’t falling over themselves to fork over money, even relatively small hunks of it, for a movie with no script and no stars based on a decidedly […]

Yeah, I posted almost nothing of substance this week. You wanna pick a fight or you wanna see the freakshow? I figured as much. calories in a blooming onion outback (MSN) What is ‘If you have to ask, step away from the dessert bar’? what does nsa mean? and craig’s list (Yahoo) What is “someone […]

I always thought auditions were horseshit. Let me clarify: I knew they were (a) necessary (evil), but I found it maddening the way people on both sides of the camera looked at them as a one-way proposition, with the power flowing from the producer end to the (ahem) “talent” end. Because frankly, that was horseshit. […]

Searches, we get searchesâ„¢

As for you starting your search here, I’ll tell you straight: the hipster quotient at communicatrix […]

Trajectory

I sat in on a class at my old acting studio last week to watch L.A. Jan do a scene (from Frances, and she tore the roof off the sucker, thanks). Having studied at Carter Thor for almost four years, I pretty much knew what to expect from an evening in Cameron‘s class: some good […]

Rest. Eat. Run. Repeat.

I’ve been feeling a bit blue lately, which I attributed to my recent wrassle with a big, honkin’ pile of receipts and the sleeping fears it woke the hell up. It made sense to me, and still does, that small and pesky unattended woes become bigger with time and without examination and correction. Like, no […]

I’m a little behind on my blog reading or I’d have already known that Google Maps (still in beta, but beddy, beddy cool) added Keyhole technology (which, apparently, they’ve bought, like everything else) with the what’s-in-it-for-me result that you can now SATELLITE MAP your house!

Hideously cool

I’ve been meaning to blog this since I drank the Kool-Aid, but duty in the form of taxes intervened for a bit. Now that I’ve got the beast fed and watered for another 12 months, I’m free to quit my procrastinating and hip y’all to a few good places to do some of your own. […]
