things I see and must speak on, son!
I had every intention of doing an Ice Bucket Challenge video, but at the time, I was in neck deep in making a movie… and I still am.

I know, it’s only September and I shouldn’t be doing Christmas posts yet, but screw you, you picky prick! I found the most amazing page of a Sears Wish Book that ever existed and the fact that Farrah Fawcett is included in this situation is only half the reason this is great.

Now that I’ve lost somewhere between 10 and 15 pounds, I’m coming down from the mountain top to share with you (yes, you!) the secrets of my success. Will they work for you? I have no idea. Are these the reasons I’m losing weight? Again, no clue. But here’s what I’m doing. Read the rest of this entry
