Waking Up With Cozumel

I like to watch a town come to life. It begins Cozumel around 5:30 am and it starts slow. A hotel sees of a pilot in the dark and another car goes by 2 or 3 minutes later. Around 6 am a man in an unrecognizable uniform that has orange reflective bands pushes a large…

40 Yards And A Mule

Today is the biggest of the three days per year that I care about football. I live in Savannah Georgia so I have adopted the Falcons and now they’re going to the Super Bowl and I am going to a pizza place. I don’t eat pizza and I don’t play football but I’m very excited…

January 8 2016

Tacoma comedy club, this week was a rush of creative inspiration! The support I got from fans that had seen me before and friends at the club was total and I was humbled.  Sometimes we get swept away by the world and the people in it in a good way and we can’t take that…

Barefoot Comedy Podcast! Ep #1

I am home after 5 very hard working and Traveling days. Great comedy, jiujitsu, and podcasting. The jewel of it all was The Barefoot Comedy Podcast at Tybee Post theater. My Daughter Piper,┬áJames Finizio ,and I hosted Todd Williams and Bengt Washburn for an outstanding stand up show and podcast with a huge crowd of…

Catch 22 Day

Everybody is up so I am up. The dogs are up. The kids are up. So I am up. There was a time when I slept until I didn’t like sleeping anymore and that is a time a barely remember. I think it was fraught with indecision and loneliness. Maybe it was a terrible time…

The Sleep Problem!

Did I sleep enough? I am passionate about all the things in my life… Except sleep. My nights are an exciting cascade of “extra” time that I use to address all the projects, ideas, routine catch up, and new endeavors. Since I never set an end time to that, it typically goes deep into rest…

Going Live

I am about to go live with episode 8 of World Of Friends Podcast. I will release it in a couple of weeks. I am joined by cruise ship pub guitarist Jimmy Blakemore and all of his many personalities. That’s his guitar.

Self Conscious About My Subconscious

My memories were vivid this morning. Did you ever have a flood of detailed memories from all different times in your life and you felt they were trying to tell you something? The problem becomes trying to piece together the common thread, if there is one. How could a snapshot of a street corner in…

Earthly Fever

I Just swam in the Caribbean ocean at St Maarten and my western sensibilities elbowed their way past my childlike enjoyment of frolic to remind me of micro organisms and bacterium. That’s right bacterium. That is the word you use when you imagine germs already pulsing through your bloodstream searching out organs to compromise. Ignorance…

The Spider and The Good Samaritan

I just hung out with a spider and a Good Samaritan. Sometimes people need to get your attention. The art of getting a stranger’s attention can be life or death. In this story, it was not.  I was the stranger and the man who risked it all was just behind me waiting for the same…

Citizen Happy

Have you ever seen humorous prank videos from european countries you’ve never heard of? They truly are a guilty pleasure of mine and I am always left wondering why we aren’t as happy as the good people of Von Happyshteiner Shlavilund. They react to the most inconvenient and horrific pranks with silly giggles and dancing….

St Pattys day is racist. It feels racist. The Irish are a race of people. For some reason one of their holidays appealed to the rest of the world so we all run around drinking green alcohol and mocking Irish accents while wearing green.  I have never been to Ireland but I’m guessing these are…
