Parks and Recreation bloopers

My favourite is “Why don’t you get a job?” at 7:14. God, I love Amy Poehler.





Falling asleep at work

28 08 2014

Is that a sign that I shouldn’t be working and should be sleeping instead?





Anyone nice in Austin, Texas?

27 08 2014

It’d be cool to hang out with someone while I’m in Austin next month but I’m not sure to go about looking for someone who is sane. I know someone who lives in Dallas, but he doesn’t seem to be responding to my messages, so I’m not sure what to do. There’s Craigslist and Jackd and between those two, Jackd might be something to try. Any other suggestions?





Shoe

Woman 1: “Hey, what’re you up to tonight?”
Woman 2: (nonchalant) “Hey. I’m looking for a shoe.”





Constant inspiration

25 08 2014

I watch some TV series and I get inspired to write and work on my pilot. I go to the queer film festival and I watch The Way He Looks and I get inspired to do another film. I watch the Emmys and I get inspired to pursue writing and making a web series. There’s so much I want to do, so much I want to write, so much inspiration out there that it can be difficult to try and manage it all. I feel like I want to do it all — my memoir, my picture book, my TV pilot — but I know being so diverse can also be a negative thing. I’ve always been one to want to do a slew of different things, bounding from one thing to the next. I don’t think I can be a master at everything, obviously, but I can try. Or at least try it all.





The Year of the Flood

24 08 2014

I liked this more than Oryx and Crake actually. Scarier and I had a least a little bit of a clue as to what was going on. For those who like headless torso pics, here you go. I can’t help but feel like I’m ruining Margaret Atwood’s novel by putting my naked body behind it though. Pretty sure this is not how she intended her books to be used.

Openly Straight

23 08 2014

A review I left on the VPL page for Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg:

As a teen reading this, this would’ve been a breath of fresh air to have a narrator who isn’t struggling with his sexuality, and where the romance feels realistic and genuine. As an adult reading this (which I am), I can see all the issues Konigsberg is tackles: what it’s like to be gay in a changing and progressing society, the conflict to be open vs. being seen and labeled as “the gay”, friendship. The other thing about Konigsberg’s writing is that his characters (including his previous novel, Out of the Pocket) are well-defined and rounded, even the minor ones. Fantastic writing and great story.

One of my favourites I’ve read this year!
