On my 35th birthday this year, the day started out feeling like all of my first choices for things to do were being crapped all over!

I wanted to go to The Wafflefor breakfast, but when The Boy and I got there, it was under construction. What was worse? The sign up outside said “We will re-open on July 11!” My birthday is July…

The Gift Of Impact

The Gift Of Impact

Me. 35 years ago. :)

Me. 35 years ago. :)

I turn 35 tomorrow. 

Crazy, I know. :)

Anyway, I’ve had a couple of people ask me what I’d “like for my birthday.” And while I appreciate the gesture, and I’m touched that people are thinking of getting me anything at all, I also REALLY LIKE SURPRISES. Honestly, I prefer getting gifts I have no use for but that are surprises to gifts of stuff I need but that I ask for.…

Together In the Same Room

Together In the Same Room

Adam and Me at Vasquez Rocks.

Adam and Me at Vasquez Rocks.

As you likely saw on my social media feeds, my writing partner, Adam Hunault, recently came to L.A. to visit for two weeks. It was really great to have him in town for a number of reasons, the first of which (of course) is that he’s one of my best friends and I like having him around in general.

But second, I realized something new while he was here. Or rather, his…

But It Can Be

But It Can Be


If you didn’t know me – if you didn’t know Americans – it’d be easy to see my frequent complaints about what the government is doing wrong, my lamenting over how much further we have to go with regard to the rights of women, of homosexuals, of transgender people, of people of color, or of the poor as a sign that I must really hate my country.

NEW AT BEACON: “When Feminism Becomes a Marketing Tool”


Finally, a Beacon post about something OTHER than the movie, Noah! :) In my latest over at Beacon, I talk about the current trend of using feminism to market products: when it’s effective, when it isn’t, and whether doing it at all is OK.

EXCERPT:

Not to be left out, Pantene put out an ad that focused on the double standard inherent in labels placed on confident women who work hard (“bossy,”…

HOTPIXEL POST: “Director Joseph Matarrese Goes ‘Searching For Fortune’!”

It’s always cool when you get to talk to an ambitious person who works in The Industry and is also a nice, grounded person with their head screwed on straight.
