New York World’s Fair – 1964

My father had stacks of slides around the house of which 99% are family pictures. They’re nice of course, but the gold is in the other 1%. Here is what would have been a roll of film taken at the 1964 World’s Fair held in New York. Flushing Meadows Queens to be exact. Please find…

Behind Blue Eyes

I was searching for my Tax ID number in my email when a found an old copy of the script I sent to myself for back up. I almost forgot I wrote it. I wrote this not long after the Bush v. Gore election. The premise was simple, what if a blue-eye golden boy from…

The Gamer

The Gamer was a bedtime story the kids asked me to write down. I forgot somethings and added others. Enjoy. King Franz considered himself a merciful king. Yes, he was not the ruthless tyrant type not like King Ala-Mala-Bala.  Sure, Franz employed a food taster to ensure no one was trying to poison him, but after…

First Chapter: Gross Potions

Last year I wrote a kids book. It was a slow-burn first draft written in a quirky, on-the-nose Wes Anderson Style. Some interest but the feedback was it was quirky and on-the-nose. I get it, not everyone’s internal voice sounds like Alec Baldwin Still digging the idea behind the book, I worked on other projects and…

Top Ten TV shows 2018

As I write this there are still 666 hours left in 2018.  That’s enough time to learn a language or Stairway to Heaven on the ukelele.  Also plenty of time for Netflix to covertly drop a cluster of shows, but I’m releasing my top ten list now. I’ll ignore the “Is Peak TV at its peak?”…

The Haunting of Spill House

Julian and I wrote the framework of this story over some Bueno Y Sano nachos while John danced hip-hop next door.  Our first story The Scary Derriery focused on potty talk.  The second was about a kid who can’t stop picking scabs.  This following is a short one warning kids what happens when kids don’t…

Fifty-One Things I wouldn’t have written if I wasn’t a Dad

Nothing prepares you for being a parent.  If someone tells you getting a dog is like practice for having kids it’s okay to laugh in their face and throw food at them.  Having eight insomniatic dogs over the age of 11 that need shots, eye drops and are allergic to gluten is maybe in the…

Dee Dee McGee and Her Musical Knee

Have a little scab-picker living under your roof?  Here’s some bad poetry that won’t stop your kid from picking scabs, but will let them know you’re paying attention.    Dee Dee McGee and Her Musical Knee Dee Dee McGee Skinned Her knee,      While Climbing up a bonsai tree. She didn’t shout or little…

Lattes and Limo Rides

This was a quick write.  Mostly written during downtime working in marketing for  Tony Robbins.  At 24, I had no idea it was rare to have downtime at a job.  I wrote this pre-Reddit, so that has as much to do with my productivity as anything.   The script is about someone who has the same…

Daylight Bleeds

I wrote this script almost twenty years ago. It chronicles an experiment on a man convicted of murder. His memory is erased, replaced with a new narrative and he’s released back into the public. I like the idea of rehabilitation but I’m sure I’d do everything differently now but enjoyed re-reading. Daylight Bleeds (PDF)
