Facelift in a Jar

Comments Off on Facelift in a Jar

I just watched the online premier of “Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew,” I’m a little apprehensive about the entire thing, for obvious reasons. Not that my personal issues are going to be broadcast all over the nation, I’m kind of already doing that with this blog, but to be honest, and entirely ego driven, I […]

Comments Off on Kettle

I feel as though the pressure is building, as if the stove has been simmering for the past 6 months, and now, with the air of the show coming, merely heartbeats away from my own, I feel as though my little kettle is going to scream. A high pitched whistle, begging to be taken off […]

The unsettled pond?

Comments Off on The unsettled pond?

A long time with no update, this I know, but fun times, and interesting situations have arisen, leaving me somewhat speechless (can you imagine?), left me rethinking things with new eyes, and an open heart. I’ve had a few serious blasts from my past, and a feeling regarding a current situation has managed to finally […]

And what a Good Morning it is….

I’ve been reading through my journal, a journal I kept while traveling around Europe this time last year, and it appears as though I’ve had a great adventure, and adventure so big, and so grand, that I’ve managed to forget most of it. Whether due to extreme alcohol consumption, hashish cigarettes, or plain selective memory, […]

Rain Dance

Comments Off on Rain Dance

It rained in Los Angeles for the past three days straight. The first droplets fell as I headed to LAX to attend one of the biggest taped events of my life, and I felt as though the water washing down over my town car represented much more than a fall sprinkle. When it rains in […]

Expectations and the like

Comments Off on Expectations and the like

One of the biggest things I’m trying to overcome, or I suppose, let go are my expectations. Expectations to succeed, to fail, to wake up, to go to sleep, expectations have been the root of many of my problems, and while sometimes it’s good to expect something, it’s never been good for me to have […]

Something Old, Something New.

One of my dearest friends Duncan has finally reentered the blogosphere. We went for a walk the other day up the canyon and he had already decided to start writing again, but as so many writers, suffered from that obdurate block that stands in the way of fluid communication, of cohesive words that can bring […]

When I grow up….I wanna be a real writer…

Comments Off on When I grow up….I wanna be a real writer…

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of sitting down with on of Los Angeles most charming women. She is a journalist for, and met Duncan and I at Chateau Marmont, a delightfully naughty Hollywood hotspot, the place where you go to be seen, or unseen. Duncan, Caroline and I just went for a light […]

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions….

Comments Off on Decisions, Decisions, Decisions….

I absolutely hate going to restaurants with oversized jumbotron menus. The kind of menu that is more like a novella, with pages and pages of options, things I love on each page mixed in with things I’ve never tried. I’m always overwhelmed at the thought of having to choose between all my favorite things, and […]

And So it Begins….

I’m not sure which day god created reality television, but I have a feeling it was after the seventh, created almost as a joke, for those who didn’t find enough joy in her first 6 days of creation and that seventh dedicated to rest. On the eighth day, she created reality television for the greedy, […]

On June 29th, 2009, Ian Usher sold his life on eBay. After a terrible discovery, one that left him alone in his house and surrounded by memories of his wife, he decided to sell his life. To sell. His. Life. Fucking genius. Ian was in a very fortunate place, because he actually had things he […]

It’s truly amazing how small the big kid ride is at amusement parks now that I’m a big kid. One of my very first scary rides was called “The Zipper” and it was at the Contra Costa County Fair, where the air reeked of fried food and cotton candy, and sawdust and dirt stuck to […]
